FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY

Family photography for real families who love to get outdoors 

If you’re looking for a Swansea family photographer who will capture your family in all their messy, imperfect perfection, I’m your girl. The size of your family doesn’t matter at all: one kids, two kids, three kids, seven…all are welcome. No awkward posing, no cheese and definitely no Victoriana-style sitting with hands resting on shoulders (yeah, because that’s how you sit naturally!). 

Families are awesome, unpredictable, unique things. In my experience, no two are the same, which makes them a lotta fun to photograph. My favourite thing to do is get you and your family out into the great outdoors and just let you all run wild.

It really does make for the best photos. 

I do have a beautiful home studio in Swansea where most of my newborn photography takes place but trust me: it’s better to get families outdoors. They need space and fresh air and a bit of freedom in order to really relax in front of the camera. Trust me, when you see the photos you won’t care that the wind’s whipping your hair up, you’ll just be delighted by how happy your family looks. 

The important thing about family photography is that it acts like an heirloom. In fifteen, twenty, thirty years time, you might be showing these photos to grandchildren and giving them a little glimpse into the past. These photos aren’t just for you: they’re for those who come after you.

BOOK YOUR SWANSEA FAMILY SESSION

I try not to put any limits on your family during the session, but I will send you an info pack beforehand to give you a bit of a steer on what to wear etc, and we can go to any place you like in the Swansea area.

If you don’t know of any beauty spots, I know ALL of them, so don’t worry. Woods, beach, urban landscapes…they’re all charming in their own way so it just depends on what floats your boat. 

SESSION DEPOSIT

£50

(Redeemable from any of the below packages)

02. Consultation

 Once you’ve booked your session, either pop round to my Swansea Studio (or we can chat on the phone) and we can talk about what time of day works for you, what sort of vibe you’d like to go for and the type of products your drawn to.

This also gives me chance to find out all about your family so that we can get the very best from your session.

THE FAMILY SESSION

I meet you at our chosen Swansea location and we take a stroll.

 

I have a very relaxed approach and for some reason kids just love me, so I always use this to my advantage and by the end of the session they’ll be my best buddies!

 

I might ask you or the kids to try the odd thing, but I won’t over-pose you as I’m all about real connections between families. Kids are so photogenic and oblivious that they make the most amazing subjects, especially when out in the open air.

 

Don’t worry about being camera shy or worry about that stress pimple that decided that today of all days it would make its grand appearance, (I’ll always get rid of those pesky things during the editing) – I promise that you will all be feeling like absolute rockstars by the time we’re finished. 

My family sessions are the best!

VIEWING SESSION

After I’ve had a chance to work my magic in the editor’s seat, I’ll invite you back to my Swansea Studio to have a little browse through your photos and see all the magical and wonderful moments we created during the session. If there are any funny out-takes, I always include those too so that we can have a little giggle.

Then you can choose which photos you like and we can discuss which package best works for you, but I already know that you’re going to love them all!

You’ll also have to chance to order a stunning piece of wall art of your favourite image so that it can happily take pride of place at home.

What should we wear?

When you feel good – you look good. So I would definitely recommend wearing something that makes you feel good about yourself. There is no dress code for my lifestyle photography sessions. I just ask you to avoid bright colours and also to avoid clothing with big logos as these can be very distracting. During our consultation I can help guide you with outfit choices – so don’t worry!

What happens if it rains for an outdoor session?

Skin is waterproof – isn’t it? Seriously though, that depends on you! If it’s just light rain or showers, then I’m more than happy to go ahead with the photography session – embracing the rain can really add to the mood of your photos. However, if you’d prefer to reschedule due to bad/extreme weather then that’s no problem at all. After all, these are your photos and I want you to get the most out of our photography session.

How long does the session last?

Anywhere between 1-2 hours. Some people take a little longer to feel relaxed in front of the camera, so we take as long as needed to make sure you have a positive experience and to make sure we create beautiful images.

I can’t wait to meet you and your family – it’s going to be epic!
