The Price Family Photo Shoot Session

Getting the Price Family Together for a Family Photo Shoot Session

One of the most advanced booking’s for a family photo shoot session we have had was for the Price family, booked 9 months in advance.

Lovely reason for this, their parents live in Florida and were due to visit in the summer. Therefore the perfect opportunity to get the whole family together, with plenty of notice for everyone. As specialists in large family portraits, we can confidently say that the most difficult job is for the actual organiser!  Trying to get 3 or more families in the same place at the same time is certainly a challenge.

We started the session with the main shot of the whole family. We then broke it down into different groups to offer a great variety of images. Below are a few of our favourites from this lovely shoot.

Father’s Day Gift Idea

This Father’s Day, Give Dad the Precious Gift of Family Portraits

Have you sat at your parents house enjoying a cuppa and thought, they really need to update that family photo taken over 10 years ago? This Father’s Day is the ideal time to treat dad to a photo shoot session with the whole family.

As families grow and the grandchildren arrive, grandparents really do cherish this time. They love coming to our studio to freeze this moment in time. Over the years we have welcomed many families, and returning families, to update their photos. All generations have come from newborn up to 100 years. Our studio can comfortably accommodate 15 adults, therefore we are sure to fit the largest of families.

During the photo shoot session, we also break the group down to smaller groups to capture all of the families. Making this a perfect time for not just for Dad to receive a photo of the whole family, but you can also update your own family pictures. Below are a few images from our recent shoots with all the generations.

Studio Family Portraits

Returning Bride & Groom for Studio Family Portraits

There is nothing more satisfying when customers return to the studio. We especially love having our Brides & Grooms coming back to us with their growing family, for their studio family portraits. Seeing families grow, and choosing to return to us is an honour (even though it does make us feel rather old seeing the children grow up so fast).

We recently welcomed Mike and Lisa back to the studio with their gorgeous daughter and son. We had the pleasure of recording their special day in March 2013. They contacted us to update their family photos, prompted by the request of a family member needing an up to date family photo for a special gift. Therefore, this was the perfect opportunity to get their family photos updated. The shoot was great fun, as they wanted very natural photos, nothing formal. We captured a great selection of images of them all together, and also of just the kids. Below are a few of the images from the shoot.

Professional Children Photos

Recording Precious Times with Professional Children Photos

Time flies by so quickly, especially when seeing your children growing up so fast. Recording this precious time with professional children photos is so special, as these photographs will be with you forever.

Even as the children get older and you update your family portraits, you will never part from your previous portraits. These photographs are allowing you to freeze this moment in time, to always look back on.

Below are some images from a recent photo shoot of brother (7) and sister (4) taken during the half term holidays. Before the shoot the eldest did not want his photo taken. Needless to say, mum was a little concerned to how the session would go. That soon changed though once he stepped in front of the camera, he loved it! His enthusiasm helped his sister’s shyness, which resulted in a great selection of portraits.

Photo shoot sessions are only £20. To book your shoot, call the studio on 01827 215 707, or scroll down to the enquiry form.

Family Photos – The Hammersley Family

Professional Family Photos with The Hammersley’s

We recently welcomed the Hammersley family to the studio to update their family photos. There was Mum and dad, along with their beautiful 9 year old daughter and 9 month old cheeky chappy.

We kick started the shoot with some shots of the 4 of them together to get them relaxed. We then broke the group down into different combinations. Shots included father and son, mother and daughter, sister and brother, and of course not forgetting mum and dad. Once you have kids, you often forget that you are still a couple, therefore we are always keen to get couples shots.

Here are a few of our favourites from the shoot. To book your family photo shoot, either call the studio on 01827 215 707 or scroll down to the enquiry form.

Family Pictures – The Hawkes Family

Beautiful Family Pictures

On Saturday 4th February, we welcomed the Hawkes family to the studio to update their family pictures.

The family of 5 were a lot fun to shoot. We got some really fun natural photos. One of our favourites is the brothers kissing their little sister, she doesn’t look very impressed, which was very funny. Another shot that was hilarious, was when Phil sat mum on the floor with the little princess on her lap and the lads either side. As Phil shouted ‘drop’, mum fell backwards and the lads got in close to get the black and white shot of the 3 children together. It worked brilliantly!

At the image viewing, it was really touching to see mum’s reaction. She loved every photo! (Her emotions got me choked up). Seeing these reactions to our photographs drives our passion on even more. Mum and dad chose the photos for their frames that will take pride and place in their home for years to come. Below are just a few images from the shoot.

Time to Update the Family Photos

Updating the Family Photos

Time flies by so quickly, especially when you have children. It feels like one moment they are a tiny baby in your arms, then all of a sudden it’s their first day at school, soon followed by starting High School. With all of these milestone, regularly updating your family photos is a perfect way to record these precious years.

As families grow in years, and numbers, every photo shoot session is an exciting time. What I think is extra special, is not only updating your photos, but looking back at previous photos. Seeing how everyone has grown and changed, including the fashion.

As we are in the era of digital photos, having a printed photo on the wall though is timeless and will always be seen, rather than stored in your phone.

Below are some photos of a family updating their family portrait as the kids were growing. Their last professional photo was taken a couple of years ago.

Professional Family Pictures

Professional Family Pictures of all the Grandchildren

Just before Christmas, a couple were surprised by their children with a studio photo shoot session for professional family pictures. The session was booked for the two of them with all of their grandchildren.

The gift was extra special as some of the grandchildren live in New Zealand, and were in the UK for the first time in some years. On the day of the shoot, it was the first opportunity some of the cousins had seen each other. I am sure you can imagine how much excitement there was in the studio. It was lovely seeing the family together. With all the excitement still in the air (and that a curry was waiting at home for them all to enjoy afterwards), we cracked on with the session.

There were nine grandchildren and the grandparents. Every member of the family were brilliant to work with, allowing Phil to position them in every way he asked. Therefore, enabled him to capture a really good variety of images to choose from. At the viewing session, the grandparents chose their favourite image to be framed for pride of place on their wall. A truly special photograph for them to cherish for years to come.

Below are a few of the images to demonstrate our set ups. If you would like more information on family pictures, please click to visit our page. To book your photo shoot session, call the studio on 01827 215 707, or scroll down and complete the enquiry form.
