Linda and her lifestyle photo shoot

Indoor or Outdoor or both if you cant decide

I spoke to Lynda back in March about her buying an Anniversary photo shoot gift voucher for her, Husband Phil and there 2 amazing children Scarlett and Jake.  We spoke about all the options and after consideration Lynda decided on our popular lifestyle shoot. Our lifestyle shoot is the best of both, we start with a studio photo shoot and then head to our location for an out door shoot.

When Lynda and her family arrived they changed into their studio outfits and we got to know them all. We took some amazing photos of them all together as a family, a few solo and a few fun playing shots too. Honestly it was so much fun I could have goner on and one.

Then a change of clothes and we were off to our nature reserve. Here we did our usual circuit and took some amazing photos. Again it was so much fun and we were all laughing for a lot of the time. Towards the end I took Jake off hunting for adders but it was a tad chilly (for them not us) but we did find 6 or so slow worms, a lovely little field mouse and a rare sand lizard so Jake was very happy.

We then took some more photos with them as a family before saying our goodbyes.

Such an awesome family, I loved all of them. Scarlett was just perfectly photo ready at all times and a joy to photograph, Jake, well Jake was just Jake which made it all the better once we connected ūüíô Mum and Dad were the parents we all want/need

Thanks guys for making me laugh.

Our studio shoot as part of the lifestyle package

We have a modern comfortable studio with lots of space and backdrop options including of course the very contemporary white and black options. We have a bathroom and changing areas fully heated and more importantly air conditioned for when its hotter outside.

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.

The location portraits as part of the lifestyle package

We photograph lots of families at our preferred location here near our studio and although we also head elsewhere, today we headed for the local woods and nature reserve to take a few beautiful photos. It was our 4th time there this week so we knew the trees looked fab and there were plenty of green leaves and grasses too. All of these things make for beautiful  portraits. We have a circuit of the woods and park we do which sounds a bit rigid but its not. We change our route depending on who we are with but this route suits families with children and dogs.

All in all this made for an amazing set off photos.

How much does it cost?

We offer a couple of options with our family portraits. Our regular portraits cost £50 to book and £150 for a disk of everything. This can be inside or out at our location. We can travel further afield and that may cost a little more. Our new lifestyle due shoot which is both in the studio and at our locations cost £50 to book and £200 for the disk so only £50 extra and you will get over 100 amazing photos.

So you can have a lovely selection of photos either inside or out for only £200 or both for £250.

The photos are high resolution and can be supplied either by digital download, a DVD disk or a USB stick. You can then print and share your photos as often as you like. We do of course offer a full printing, framing and canvas service too.

You also get a free framed photo gift too whilst stocks last
