From my experience the best way to make the most from your session is to make sure the whole family gets involved. We understand that most people don’t like having their images taken. That’s why I always make the sessions fun and relaxed.
The session is not about sitting and posing, it is about capturing precious time with the family. I take a whole range of different images, whatever it takes to tell your story. I love capturing the moments that show who you are not just what you look like. Whether you’re into music, sport, or just having fun together, we can build around these ideas to make a portrait that captures the unique personality of your family. So bring in props, anything goes, the more personal and original the better.
Co-ordinating outfits always work well as it brings cohesion to the images, and look at colours that suit your complexion and you feel good wearing. If you like lots of colour, perhaps pick just two colours and make sure that everyone in the family is wearing one or both of the colours.
Avoid clothing with patterns, logos, writing, pictures or anything which will be distracting or will date the photograph, even socks! Warm or cool colours, pastels and earthy colours look good in family group pictures. Textures and layers work well – they add real depth to portraits.
Family sessions generally last from ninety minutes to two hours and can take place inside my relaxed and professional studio or at a predetermined location anywhere in Kent.
Pets are welcome to be part of the shoot as they are a huge part of your family!
