Festive Family Portrait Sessions 2019
£125 for an At Home Family Portrait Session this November!
I truly believe that photographs need to be printed, and a beautiful wall portrait is often one of our most treasured possessions.
However, once a year, there is one photograph that I want taken, often one of the trickiest to coordinate, a photograph of our family that I know will never end up framed on our wall. It will end up on a card, in our family yearbooks and in Grandma’s Photo Calendar…
And that is our Festive Family Photograph 🌟
So this year, i’m offering you the kind of session that I as a busy Mum would love to have. Perhaps you have moved home this year, or have a new addition to your family? Or do you think Grandma would love a traditional framed portrait for her photograph shelf? Specially designed for fun loving families who want a quick and simple update to their family portrait, with your favourite digital file included, these are different to any other sessions you might have seen, or indeed I have offered before!
Because during selected dates in November, I will come to YOU at YOUR HOME, and capture you and your family. Whether you choose to have your Christmas decorations up, or have an autumnal garden you’d like us to shoot in if the weather allows, or you wear your best Christmas jumpers or not is totally up to you. And of course, pets can be included 🐶🐱
I know that for Families, Saturday sessions are the most convenient, so I will be offering these along with a few weekday dates. We will be shooting for around 45 minutes, and I’ll aim to capture 20 portraits. Then around a week after your session, your images will be available to view in a secure online gallery, from which you can choose the images you wish to purchase.
Sessions will be £125 (slightly extra for locations more than 10 miles from Reigate), and will include your 45 minute session and one digital file. I’m also offering special prices should you wish to purchase further digital files or professional quality mounted prints that fit in standard photo frames, making the perfect Christmas presents for family members. You will also be able to purchased framed prints and artwork too should you wish. I also have some discount codes for my favourite card printers, so can give you a head start on that too!
Available dates and times:
Saturday 9th November - 11am and 2pm **BOTH BOOKED**

This is the only time that I will be offering digital files as a stand alone product. Corresponding digital files are complimentary with the purchase of printed products for all other sessions that I offer, but but if you require just one shot for the front of your Christmas card, or a few portraits for presents, this is the perfect kind of session for you!

Frequently Asked Questions
Are these Festive Family Portrait sessions right for me and my family?
These festive sessions are perfect for you if you want a seasonally themed update to your family portraits. After our time together you will have a selection of images from which to choose your favourites, which will be done via a secure online gallery. These sessions are half the time of my standard sessions, so they can fit in around a busy weekend, and these
Can I ask for a specific timeslot?
Sessions are available on a first come first served basis, and if you have enquired, I can hold the session for 24 hours while you confirm with family members. If you have other commitments on the day such as sports clubs, please let me know when you enquire below and I will try my best to accommodate you.
Do I have to have a Christmas Theme?
Nope, not at all! You choose your outfits, and I do have some Christmas jumpers, hats and a festive wreath we can hang on your front door that I will bring along, if you wish to add a festive twist to your images.
Can we shoot at a family members' house?
Yes we can; the £125 fee includes locations within 10 miles of Reigate, for locations further afield there is a small extra charge for my travel time.
Can we have an outfit change?
With these sessions, due to the time limits I suggest you stick to one outfit, but if you have a quick outfit change for young children, that should be fine. If you’d like to include outfit changes, I’d recommend a standard portrait session with me where we have much more flexibility for outfit changes.
Can I buy digital files?
Because these images are often created for Christmas cards and calendars, you may purchase further digital files (printable to 10x8") at £30 each, or professionally printed and mounted 10x8" prints that fit in standard 12x10" frames. for £25 each. If you fall in love with your portraits and want to talk to me about a framed wall print or wall art, we can do that too.
When can we see our images?
Within a week of your session I will release to you your secure Online Gallery, and you will have 48 hours to place your order. Digital files will be sent within 2 working days, and mounted prints will be delivered in around 14 working days.
