Family Portrait Mini Sessions - Autumn 2021


Celebrate your Family this Autumn

with beautiful​ Family Portraits in the Surrey & Sussex Hills

Something I'm sure you'll agree that we have all learnt from this pandemic is how important our families are. And having spoken to quite a few people over the last year, when asked who the first people they would be spending time with once circumstances allow will be, everyone without hesitation said family. Parents, siblings, grandchildren, cousins. My thoughts go out to everyone that has lost a loved one during this difficult time.

Now is your chance to have your own Family Portrait session! For families of up to 6 people*, I will capture the fun of family time with you, a taster of what it’s like to have a Portrait Session with me. Each session is around 30 minutes, allowing us to create a small collection beautiful images of you as a family, including your dog if you have one!


Sessions are held a few times a year on specific dates, and the fees for these sessions are £95, which includes your favourite image as 10x8” matted print worth £50, with the option to purchase further framed prints and artwork should you so wish. 

To book a session, please fill in your details below, and I will be in touch to confirm the next available dates and times. If you'd like to tell me more about your family, or why you'd like to have a Portrait session, please pop that in your message.

To help you decide if these mini sessions are for you and your family, I have put some of my Frequently Asked Questions below.


If you have any further questions, or have a family bigger than 6, please add those in your message too.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Frequently Asked Questions

Are these sessions right for me and my family?

These 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, to be displayed on your walls or in a storybook album. These sessions are half the time of my standard sessions, so they can fit in around a busy weekend.


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.


What happens if the weather on the day is bad?

Every outdoor session has a back up day which I ask you to hold in your diary. I watch the forecast carefully, the days beforehand, and I’m in touch with you the night before to confirm we’re going ahead. If the weather forecast is averse, we may well call it at that point and go to our back up day, but otherwise we’ll meet as planned. If during the session the weather turns, we’ll call it and reconvene on our back up day. I don’t expect my Clients to be happy shooting in drizzle or rain, so we won’t, don’t worry!


Can I bring an outfit change?

With these sessions, due to the time limits I suggest you stick to one outfit, but if the weather allows we can remove jumpers, coat, cardigans etc. If you’d like a longer session, I’d recommend a standard portrait session with me where we have much more flexibility for outfit changes.


Can I buy digital files?

Any framed prints, wall art or storybook albums you purchase will come with the corresponding digital file, free of charge. Digital files are not available to purchase separately, as they are never intended to be the finished product, but separate mounted gift prints are available to buy alongside a frame or album. To see more about these products, click here.


Where exactly do we shoot?

The each session will have a set location, which will vary according to the time of year. All Sessions are held at a place of beauty and photographs will be captured within easy walking distance of a car park. Actual locations vary depending on the time of day, and I always choose places for the best light we have. We will shoot at several locations, so suitable footwear is recommended. At times the site can be busy, but I’m very aware of this and choose areas that are less frequented to help you feel comfortable during our time together.


When can we see our images?

At your session I will confirm to you your Viewing Appointment time, usually within 2 weeks. I come to you in your home and present to you your images, along with samples of all of the products that I offer. Here is some more information about What to Expect from your time with me.
