FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY

I can’t get enough of family photography sessions – especially when we get outside and have some fun!

 It doesn’t matter how big or small your family is, my sessions are perfect for capturing real moments and personalities and I promise there will be 

NO cheesy posing and NO awkward smiles!

 As a mum myself I have taken  a million photos of my own kids Leyla and Charlie when we’ve either been down the woods or the beach, and I can honestly say that these photo’s are hands down my absolute favourites EVERY. SINGLE. TIME!

BUT DON’T YOU HAVE A STUDIO?

 Yes I do – and my studio is perfect and I love it!

 And yes taking photos in the studio is easier and I can guarantee that there will be no fly away hairs covering your faces and make sure that everyone looks smart in their perfectly ironed clothes and and that everyone is looking at the camera and forcing a smile!

 BUT THAT’S THE PROBLEM – THEY’RE TOO PERFECT! And life just isn’t like that in the real world.

I have honestly come to stage in life where I don’t care if my kids are not making eye contact with the camera, because the photos I fall in love with time after time, are the photos where they are laughing, giggling, having fun and just being THEMSELVES!

All kids are a little wild and carefree and thats EXACTLY what I want to document during your family session. Soon they will be grown up and wont want to cuddle or kiss you in public – or even hold your hand for that matter, and they will soon become a little wiser to the world and little more cautious in life! 

My family sessions are designed to FREEZE these moments just for you! Having you all stood in a line in my studio will NOT show your emotions or your strong bonds and crazy personalities – so whats the point in doing it the old fashioned way?

If you want to be able to look at photos in 10, 15, 20 years time and say ‘look how tall and stright you used to sit’ then I am definitely NOT the photographer for you! 

But if you want to get the photos out in years to come and feel emotional at how little and innocent they were, and laugh and giggle about the smiles and happiness in your photos then I am DEFINTLEY the photographer for you, because I promise you wont care if you hair is blowing madly in the wind when you look at your photos in 10 years time and all you see is happiness and genuine family moments.

Being located in Swansea, South Wales the possibilities are endless, and you will have a totally unique experience that truley reflects who you all are as individuals and as a family!

ORDERING SESSION

Okay – so after your family session I will spend hours editing and retouching your images making sure that they are perfect! 

Then its time to come into the studio to see your photos for the first time. I’ll show you all the edited images, and together we can select your favourite photos and products to purchase.  You can choose how you wish to display them in your home and there are plenty of options to choose from!

Don’t panic! – I am not a sales person and I cringe at the thought of hard sales. I won’t hold your photos ransom for prices no one can realistically afford. I promise that all orders are made to fit around your budget and you can relax with a cuppa while you make your selection knowing that there is absolutely no pressure! 

Once you’ve made your selection, my highly skilled craftsmen will create your products, and they’ll be ready to collect soon. I’m already excited to see how you choose to display your memories in your home!

PRINTS AND WALL ART

In the modern world – everything has become a digital process. Don’t allow your memories to die on your phone or desktop screen!

I remember as a child flickering through old photo albums of my family – learning all about my roots and remember feeling close to the people and the moments in the photographs. I don’t think that passing a USB down to the next generation will have the same sentimental value compared to a physical photo you can hold in your hands or place on your walls. I massively believe we should ALL be printing our images and displaying them PROUDLY in our homes!

I can help your choose the best way to display your images in your home, creating an environment that will tell the story of you and your family.

The products I offer are created by hand, by skilled craftsmen ensuring your legacy is unique and meaningful. You will be amazed at the feeling of physically holding your portraits for the first time as you appreciate the quality and clarity of your portraits, I promise that the value of your printed products will only increase over time! I offer a wide range of products from small prints to traditional and modern wall art from canvases to large wall displays!

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.
