Wondering what to wear or how to pose? \We make it easy. And fun!

      Whether it’s a romantic engagement shoot, a cuddles-filled family session or a gorgeous maternity or new-born shoot, I want you to enjoy every minute. Here are some tips on how to do just that.

      We’re so pleased with the photos of our little boy. Andy was a lovely chatty, friendly guy and put us at ease straight away. He was very patient and clearly has lots of experience of dealing with kids. The photo package was incredibly reasonable and we were very impressed with the high quality images. We would absolutely recommend Andy for informal, natural, fun pics of your little ones Heather.

      Enjoy Yourselves!

      We will chat on the phone in the week prior to your session so we can agree on the perfect location for your shoot and I can find out all about your family. That enables me to can plan the session so it is unique to your family.

      Your family photo shoot will be relaxed, enjoyable and above all, FUN!

      I’ll give some direction to ensure you are in the most flattering light and position, then you just enjoy yourselves so that I can capture your family naturally. You just enjoy each others’ company doing the things you love to do in the places that you love to do them.

      Have Fun!

      I don’t use a studio – too boring! Your shoot will be on location at a place of your choice or even at your home. Perfect for avoiding boring the kids!

      Snacks for the little ones – Think dry and non-chocolately like raisins, fruit buttons or crackers!

      Talk to them beforehand if they are old enough and explain what you are going to do. Don’t make them feel rushed, they will dig their heels in.

      Make sure everyone is fed and happy and work round babies nap times, don’t expect them to change their routine for one day!

      Be Yourself!

      Some of the best photographs are where everyone is engaged with each other. Not every picture needs to have everyone looking at the camera and smiling at the same time. If you are engaged as a family your eyes will be on your family and your smile with be natural. These are the photographs that you will cherish most because they depict your family naturally, as they really are!

      Clothes! Wear what you like! Wear what you feel comfortable in. You might want to think about the season – are they warm enough or cool enough? Do the colours work with nature at that time of the year? My only request would be to avoid big logos or slogans. And given the fun we’re going to be having, a change of outfit is a good idea!

      And finally...

      Don’t be afraid to pick up your children and toss them in the air.
      Give your wife a kiss on the check.
      Tell your husband how much you love him.
      Whisper something naughty in his ear!

      Have fun. Laugh. Giggle. Joke. Embrace. Kiss. Snuggle. Play.
      Allow me to capture the emotion and true beauty of your family.

      We’ll have a ball!
