Family Photo Shoots at Home
- …your baby is very new or simply loves his/her routine, and travelling would cause too much disruption;
- …you want your portraits to be very personal and intimate;
- …you have a home with special design or period features, and you would like to incorporate these in your portraits;
- …it’s raining or too cold to be outside!
I am always excited to book home photo shoots. There is something very unique about how each family “live” their space. Your home bears all those personal touches that tell me about your life, your passions, your story. For me to get a glimpse into such things is beneficial to us both. It helps us build mutual knowledge and trust, which ultimately translates into those priceless, genuine family portraits that your family will cherish for generations.
While visiting, you can be assured that I will treat your home with complete care and respect. We will decide together which rooms would be most suitable for your session, depending on the layout and the amount of natural light. Living rooms, master bedrooms and nurseries are always great candidates, but on occasion we may go for something a bit different and even use the kitchen or bathroom!
With your permission, I may need to move furniture around a bit, to create a suitable shooting space or access the best available light. But don’t worry – I’ll put it all back where it was before I leave!
Depending on the ages of your children, I will spend approximately 1.5-4 hours with you (newborn sessions being the longest). You brew the coffee, I’ll bring the biscuits 🙂
I regularly visit my clients in London, Richmond, Winchester, Southampton, Reading, Guildford and anywhere in between. Do check with me if your area is not listed – I am always happy to travel further afield (though a small travel charge may apply).
