FAMILY

Family photographer in London

01.

Welcome, let me tell you more

As a family photogapher in London I have been working with families outdoors, in the studio or in the home, for the past 3 years.

I encourage families to enjoy the moment and connect with each other during the phootoshoot.

We will go for a walk, throw sticks, climb trees or play hide and seek.

I love capturing the magic of your family together, while you are busy and connected to each other. 

The resulting photographs are a true capture of who you are, when you are all together surrounded by love.

YOUR QUESTIONS

See below for answers to some frequently asked questions.

Have I left something out? Please do get in touch and I’ll be happy to answer any other questions you may have.

How to reserve a family photography session in London?

Following the initial enquiry and phone call, we will pencil in a date and a time that is suitable for you for the family photoshoot.

To reserve the booking I ask for a session fee of £50. Payment can be done via bank transfer for which I send you the details once we have confirmed a date and a time that suits you.

Where does the family photoshoot take place?

For family photoshoots in the studio, the session can take place in my home studio in Tooting Bec or in a studio in Balham. We can discus which one is best for your family at the pre-booking stage. 

For a family photoshoot outdoors, we will discuss at the pre-booking stage the best outdoor location for your family. It can be a local park, somewhere further afield or a landmark in London.  

For a family photoshoot in your home, we can discuss the details together, which room to use and how you can prepare.

It is possible to do a combination of outdoors and in your home starting with a phtoshoot in your home first. 

What can you bring with you for the family photoshoot?tn?

I recommend you bring a favourite soft toy for the children or any favourite items, such as a guitar or a book. These personal items will help make the photographs even more unique and memorable for your family. 

How do we choose the final images?

Following the family photoshoot, we will arrange a date for the viewing appointment where you can view and choose the collections you’d like to purchase. The viewing can take place in my home studio or at your home, or via skype, depending on your circumstances and what is easier for you.

What is the cost for a family photoshoot?

Typically clients spend between £300-£500 depending on the collection they choose. 

If you would like to receive a price list, drop me an email and I will send that across to you.

In the press

To document a moment in history and to bring joy to families in my local area, I took Doorstep Photographs during the month of May as a fundraiser for St George’s Hospital. 

See the project on their website 

Doorstep portraits by Local Photographer for St George’s

The project has been a great blessing duing the lockdown and it has been amazing meeting so many local families and capturing unique memories for them. 

The project was captured in an article by the South West Londoner together with another local photographer taking photographs of families in South West London staying at home.
