Sandy’s family photo shoot on location

Sandy’s location shoot in her home in the new forest.

Sue and I recently travelled to the new forest for a family photo shoot for Sandy and her family. I had spoken to her several times and had a good idea of the photos she wanted.

Her family were getting together for dinner so we all met up for some wonderful relaxed photos. 7 in total so there were lots of photo opportunities by mazing top our groupings a little. Of course we only did that after we got the main family group in the bag.

We started with a few quick shots in the garden, it was a tad windy so we were pretty quick with this part and then back inside for the rest of the groups. We started in the lounge and then the beautiful hallway with its staircase and ended up in the conservatory. This gave us a lovely combination and lots of super fun photos too.

Lastly we took the 2 younger girls back outside for a few photos in Sandy’s news car.

This rounded off a perfect afternoon photographing some amazing people.

What does it cost for a family location photo shoot?

Our family portrait shoots for up to 8 people cost £200 either in the studio or at our location in Chillworth. Further afield it cost a little more and the new forest is £250. This 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.
