FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY

“Family faces are magic mirrors. Looking at people who belong to us, we see the past, present, and future.” ~ Gail Lumet Buckley

My aim is to create permanent memories by capturing natural moments in family life. My photos are relaxed and true; a reflection of a moment in time. Whether you want a more formal shoot or a relaxed and spontaneous one, you choose the location and style, either outdoors or at your home. I will record your family in such a way that generations to come will share your memories.

I’d love to hear from you, just get in touch! 

BEFORE THE SESSION

Prior to the shoot we will discuss the various options and alternatives. I can take the pictures outdoors in your garden, the park or in the comfort of your home. My aim is to create a relaxed atmosphere for your family to enjoy the shoot. Normally the session lasts between 1 – 2 hours when I will take a minimum of 50 images. My emphasis is on high quality images and an exceptional service. I want you to enjoy the images for a lifetime. I live in Rickmansworth, West Hertfordshire and the session fee covers a radius of 15 miles which includes parts of Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Berkshire, Middlesex and London. For sessions further away or abroad a surcharge applies.

AFTER THE SESSION

I edit and upload a selection of  images of the photo session within 10 days on a secure web gallery. The gallery will be accessible for 4 weeks.

You can create a list of your favourite images online in your own time and contact me to discuss the products and the final order. All the images are available in colour or black and white.

Alternatively, we can arrange a viewing for you to select your photographs, frames and album with me and I will advise you on the best presentation. I work with an excellent supplier of high quality frames and coffee table books to give you the best finish to your photographs. After you have made your selection, I will edit the images and remove any blemishes.The photos from the session will be accessible for a period of one year after purchase.

PAYMENT

Once we have agreed a date for the photo shoot, a deposit is payable to secure your booking. Please contact me as soon as possible if you have to cancel, so that we can re-arrange the session for a later date. Payment for the photos can be made by bank transfer, cheque or online by PayPal/credit card.
