Children's and Family Photography

Children’s and Family Photography Session

My approach to Children’s and Family Photography sessions is relaxed and fun. Getting to know my clients and understanding their requirements results in natural looking photographs, that you can relate too.

The Sessions are photographed outdoors, on location around Gloucester, Cheltenham, Stroud and other parts of Gloucestershire.  I love strong imagery created by colours and the elements that the outdoors offers.

The session usually last 1-2 hours, nothing is rushed.  For young children timeout maybe required at times and that is fine.

I love using softer light, when the sun is lower in the sky, so my sessions tend to take place after 4pm, however when photographing very young children that may not always be possible.

How to dress your family 

When it comes to what your family should wear for your photo shoot, planning ahead is good!  Wearing colours that compliment each other and also works well with the surroundings, will really add impact to the photo’s.   I am happy to guide you when it comes to colours to wear.

What if my my child………..?

Many of my customers love the idea of a session, but are worried about how their child/children will behave, after all it wasn’t their idea.

Having two boys of my own with two very different personalities, I know that in some situations they are not going to play ball, and I need to think of a new strategy.

On my outdoor children/family photography sessions there is no pressure to perform.  Your child needs to feel relaxed and happy where they are and not restricted.  They can bring toys to the session to give them security, they can even be used in the shoot.

I take time to get to know the child/children, let them see the back of the camera so they feel involved and a little in control.  It becomes a fun experience for them.

Should they decide to have an 'I’m not happy’ moment we take a break, give them space, before we continue. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.

CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE

Family photo shoot gloucester and cheltenham

We had a great family photo session with Zoe, she was so good with our children that by the end of it she was our two year old's new best friend! The photos are perfect, she clearly put a lot of work into the editing and we've got some photos that will stay on our walls forever. Thanks Zoe.
