Ellie’s family photo shoot

This weekend we met Ellie and her lovely family for an updated family photo shoot. They had previously had a shoot elsewhere when their son was a year old and this time their little princess was a year old.

The plan was a nice relaxed and fun shoot. And thats pretty much what we had. It was the perfect start to our weekend and I think they all enjoyed it too. The children were just brilliant and relaxed straight into the studio which always helps.

We took a lovely selection of photos as a family them mum with the kids and dad with the kids then the kids separately.

Amazing family ūüíô and a joy to photograph.

Our family photography studio

We have a modern comfortable studio with lots of space and backdrop options including of course the very contemporary white and black options as well as our beautiful brown too. We have a bathroom and changing areas fully heated and more importantly air conditioned for when its hotter outside which im res;iably informed it will be again ūü§™

Lots of free parking offload and a waiting room if you arrive early.

We have free high speed guest wifi so you can catch up one facebook whilst we photograph the children and you can enjoy a lovely latte from our deluxe coffee machine which of course is all free too.

Free cookies for the children and adults. Our famous Gingerbread cookies are very popular and people say they are worth coming back for.

We also have phone sockets available for recharging you just need to ask.

What does it cost for a family photo shoot?

Our family portrait shoots for up to 8 people cost £200 and includes all of the photos that we take supplied electronically which allows you to download as often as you like to print and share. We do not hold back, if we take 100 photos then you get 100 photos all beautifully finished ready to print and share. We do charge a little more for over 8 but only £50.00 or very large groups £100.00 for the extra time and editing but effectively each family gets a portrait shoot so great value.

With each shoot you also get (if you wish to) a client gallery/slideshow on our dedicated fast server which is fab for computer or phone viewing. This link doesn’t not expire so is great to share with family and friends too. You can preview the slideshows below.

Surely there must be hidden extras?

Absolutely not. Sue and I sell our photo packages just like we prefer to buy things, that is everything upfront and honest.  Every package we offer from Portraits to newborns, cake shoots and family shoots comes with all of the photos that we take (minus any mistakes or blinkers etc) and they are all high resolution 300dpi ready to print and share with family and friends. That means afterwards you can pop along to your local printers and buy prints or a canvas which is super important if you live away or if your parents live away and they want photos or any album, you just forward the download link that we send you.
