Kayley’s lockdown photo shoot

Kayley’s Autumnal photo shoot

Back in March Kayley’s husband Russell purchased one of our gift voucher packages for her to have a family photo shoot in the springtime woods. Well we all know what happened with Covi-Jail so the shoot was postponed. Fast forward to this weekend and with half term it was the perfect time for the shoot.

This weekend was already super busy with 4 location shoots amongst other things so we were praying to the weather gods for a decent few days. Alas it was rubbish Friday and Saturday so had to reschedule a couple and sure enough Sunday morning was torrential rain.We had these guys booked in at 1pm amends at 12 it was literally lashing it down. Kayley, Russell and their 2 adorable children arrived unfazed and excited. So off we went armed with umbrellas and coats 😍

Well it was a great choice because although the wet woods did give us some limitations, the colours were sensational with the very wet and glassy sunshine helping us to create some beautiful photos.

Once we started with the kids, 5 and 1 we all knew we only had a short window, but they were just perfectly behaved and tolerated all my stupidness to get some awesome shots. We also went snake hunting but alas we never saw any.

Another fabulous location shoot with an amazing family.

COVID RESTRICTIONS and what they mean here at JPP…..

Sue and I are so pleased to be working again. But we are taking nothing for granted. Our work practice will be a little different but we are still the same fun loving photographers.

We have new PPE stations with hand sanitiser and anti bac hand wash in the bathroom too. We also have gloves and masks for us to wear and for children we will wear our super snazzy super heroes masks so you can rest assured we have your best interests at heart.

What does a family shoot cost and what do we get?

Our family photo shoots either here at our beautiful studio or out on location at our local nature reserve cost just £200.00. For this you get every single photo we take which is often around 70/100 and these are sent to you digitally ready to print and share with family and friends without any of our branding so completely clean and beautifully edited. These make perfect Christmas gifts.

Our “no nonsense pricing”. We charge 1 price and you get everything. No arguing about stupid priced prints. no ugly upsetting or pressure, No threats of destroying photos or photos that you will never see. With us you get them all in super high resolution to do with as you please.

We also offer a full photo printing service from £1 per print.

To book a shoot we need a £50 deposit and the balance on the day. Please contact me for availability details on the above contact button or by calling our studio on 02380 767084

We work 7 days a week and do not charge extra for weekends or evenings.

Our location

Although we are happy to travel anywhere for our location shoots we do have a nature reserve right on our doorstep and its just beautiful all year round. At this time of year the Autumn colours are just spectacular and definitely makes for beautiful photos. There is a lovely woodland walk we take which is pushchair friendly and a lake with Lilys too. We meet here at the studio first and drive up together.

We have over 250 verified google reviews which is pretty unique and speak for itself 💙
