Natural, Relaxed Family Photography in Surrey and London
Family sessions are relaxed and fun and, most importantly tailored to you. I’ll capture you and your loved ones enjoying yourselves at home or in a beautiful outdoor location. I love to photograph smiles, laughter and the connections between you. Preserving moments that you can treasure forever.
Before Your Session
In the run up to your session we’ll be in touch on email or on the phone, so that I can find out all about your family and what you are hoping for from the session. We’ll also discuss possible locations, and any other questions you have. Around a week before we’ll have another chat on the phone to finalise the details.
On The Day
Family sessions can take place at your home, in a favourite outdoor location, or we can divide the time between both. On the day of the session we’ll usually spend around 90 minutes together, but we’ll work to your family’s pace and can stop for drinks, snacks or baby’s nap as needed.
During the shoot I’ll guide you to the best locations, and will come prepared with lots of games to keep your little ones entertained, and keep the experience fun and relaxed for you all.
Clare was amazing! She took the time to make sure that we had all the information we needed in advance and to get to know us so that when we turned up to meet her, she instantly bonded with my boys talking about things she knew they liked. They were comfortable with her from the start and she very gently took us through various locations and scenarios to get some amazing photos. Nothing felt forced or unnatural.”

After Your Session
A week or two after your session we’ll meet again for your viewing and ordering appointment. This is where you have time to view all of your portraits and decide what you would like to purchase.
During this time I’ll be available to offer advice on which products will work well with your photographs, and can mock up layouts so you can choose the right options for your family. Perhaps that’s some gorgeous new frames to hang at home, prints to gift close family members, or a beautiful fine art album to tell your family’s story.
You’ve portrayed both my children’s personalities in such a beautiful and true way, I smile each time I look at the photos. Thank you for capturing such sweet and happy memories of us as a family.”
