Outdoor Family Photography in Esher
Hello – I’m Clare, a family and baby photographer based just down the road from Esher in East Molesey.
I photograph families across Surrey and South West London, and specialise in natural, relaxed outdoor family photography.
You might be here because you’re thinking about booking a family photo shoot. I’m sure you’ll want to choose the best photographer for your family, and on this page you can see some of my work, and find out a little more about having a family photo shoot with me. If you have any other questions or would like to chat about having your family photographed please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
A Relaxed, Enjoyable Family Photography Experience
Family life can be hectic so my aim for every family is to keep your photo shoot experience as relaxed and easy for you as possible.
I provide a full-service experience, and will guide you through every step so that you feel prepared for your session and have a relaxed and enjoyable experience on the day, and have beautiful ways to display and enjoy your photographs afterwards.
Planning Your Esher Family Photo Shoot
As soon as you’ve booked your session, the planning begins. The first thing we’ll normally do is talk about what you’re hoping for from the session so that I can tailor it to your family, and choose a location together.
You may already have somewhere in mind for your session, but please don’t worry if you don’t! Over the years I’ve got to know a number of beautiful locations close to Esher, and when we discuss your ideas for the session we can work out which location is the best fit for your family. Some popular local options are Claremont Landscape Garden, Esher Common and Bushy Park, but we can go further afield if you wish.
In the run up to your session I’ll also share lots of practical hints and tips, including advice on the best clothes to wear for outdoor family photographs. I can also arrange for a professional hair and makeup artist to come to your home before the session should you wish.
The Day Of Your Family Photography Session
On the day of your session we’ll usually spend between one and two hours together, and I’ll guide you through the session to make sure we capture your family at your best.
From where to stand or sit, to what to do I’ll give you lots of guidance so that you don’t have to worry about feeling awkward. I’ll also have plenty of games up my sleeves to keep your little ones entertained.
My goal is to capture the energy and personality of your family…without any cheesy grins or awkward posing!
After Your Family Photo Shoot
A week or two after your session we’ll meet online where you can view the fully edited photographs from your session, and choose what you would like to order.
At this stage you’ll have the option to purchase the high resolution digital files to print yourself, or to choose from a carefully curated range of expertly made wall art and albums.
I know how easy it is to have a photo shoot, buy the digital files and never get around to printing them, so I provide a complimentary wall art and album design service during your ordering appointment. This means you don’t need to guess what your frames or album will look like, or whether they’re the right pieces for your home. Complimentary delivery to your doorstep is included too!
I hope that this page has given you a flavour of what it’s like to have a session with me. You can also find out more about booking a family session, and full pricing information here:
