I know so many parents that would love a family photo shoot after seeing their out-of-date photo's around their home, but finding the time to attend one can be tricky with life commitments......

A mini family photo shoot my be perfect for you and your family.

I have been photographing children and families for many years. These sessions are taken outdoors where children can feel free and explore.

I offer an all inclusive price of £199. I do ask for a £99 deposit (non refundable) to secure your family outdoor photo shoot and this amount will be deducted off your balance. The balance is due before the sessions. 

Mini outdoor photo shoot are seasonal and take place in Spring and Autumn.  A small number of these sessions are released in February and July.

Mini family outdoor photo shoots

Photographs show that we have lived, and plays such an important role for our children.  Photographs highlights children’s memories, and also brings the very earlier years of their life into their memory after looking at their photos.

Mini family outdoor photo shoots

How does a mini family outdoor photo shoot works?

I choose the location and the time. The photo shoot is an all-inclusive price, so you pay one fee of £199 for the session and 5 digital images.  After your viewing session your chosen 5 images will be emailed to you, with full printing and sharing rights.  The copyright remains Natural Essence Photography’s.

The time spent photographing is reduced to 30 minutes instead of 1 to 2 hours. Due to the shorter time scale these photo shoots are limited to a maximum of 4 people (immediate family).

To ensure my time is best spent, we stay around one area in the location. This ensures enough time is allocated to photographing your family and less time walking around.

Due to the shorter shooting time there are no clothes changes.  I am happy to advise on what colours to wear, so they will compliment the surroundings and final images.

A mini family outdoor photo shoot may not suit all families.  It is difficult to say what age these sessions would suit, it is more about your child and their character at the time.  A full photo shoot would probably be best if you have a very shy young child, this type of session allows me more time to get to know your child and for them to settle into the environment.
