Family shoots can be done anywhere there is good lighting. Im more than happy to shoot at the family home should you wish to be in familiar surrounds alternatively a park, beach or similar also make for great backdrops. When thinking about booking a family shoot the session time is more important than location as early morning or late afternoon/sunset are the ideal times. Obviously this doesn't work for all families especially those with young children but if we can get as close to sunrise or sunset we are off to a good start.
What to Wear
This is really up to you. Im not a big fan of everyone wearing the same outfit or colour as it often doesn't reflect who you really are as a family. Comfortable, colour coordinated outfits that are weather appropriate is usually best. My big no nos would big logos with text and to dress in something you're not comfortable in. If you are wanting inspiration I would check out pinterest.
During the shoot
If you have a young family that may not be up for 1-2 hours of photography its often a good idea to plan an activity. This activity may be location related for example visiting the beach, or exploring a grand parents farm. If your staying at home the activity can be a little more adventurous such as baking a cake, or playing outside in the sprinkler. I find with kids under 5 this is a great way to get organic candid moments without the stress of asking them to 'smile'. It also brings out their personalities which are so unique at this young age!
After the Shoot
It takes a few weeks for me to edit your images but once done I will supply you with the digital download link and post your USB. Prints can be ordered online (through your supplied link) or you can print them yourself. Books + Albums are also available.
