Family Photography

As children grow and their personalities develop, a family portrait session is a great way to capture this.  Every day our children change and even though we are certain we will remember each and every detail, sometimes our memories fade.  But if we capture it in a photographic image, it takes us straight back to that moment in time every time we look at it.

I work on location to allow children greater freedom, to capture more natural portraits of you and your family.  The Sussex countryside is beautiful whatever the season.  So whether you prefer a walk on the beach or through the woodlands, we can choose a location ideal for you.

Whether you are looking for relaxed images or something more formal, I work closely with you to ensure we get images that reflect your family at their best.

What to Wear

Co-ordinating outfits always work well as it brings cohesion to the images.  Look at colours that suit your complexion and you feel good wearing. If you like lots of colours, perhaps pick just two 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, and that even includes 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.

Location Sessions

Location shoots offer you the opportunity to capture wonderful family images in the natural environment, ranging from woodlands to beaches, heathlands to countryside scenes.  Location sessions can take place up to 30 miles from RH13 8JF, at a destination chosen by you, or recommended by myself.

Studio Sessions

Studio sessions last around an hour and are very informal and relaxed to put you and your children at ease. I have a variety of props and backdrops and plenty of patience and tricks to keep little ones entertained.  Outfit changes during the session are encouraged if you want to try a few different looks.
