How It Works

BOOKING YOUR SESSION

I run family session mornings on selected weekends between April and November each year. 

Locations vary from beautiful National Trust sites, to gorgeous parks and woodland areas, to Surrey’s stunning lavender fields.

At the end of this page you can see the upcoming dates and locations and get in touch to book your session time.

At certain times of the year sessions can sell very quickly so it is best to book your session a few months in advance.

BEFORE YOUR SESSION

Before your session I’ll ask you to complete a questionnaire so that I can find out all about your family and tailor the shoot to you.

You’ll also receive my session guide packed with tips to help you feel prepared, including a guide to choosing your family’s outfits

YOUR FAMILY PHOTO SHOOT

The day of your session has arrived! 

On the day we’ll spend around half an hour together and I’ll capture you all together, in smaller groups, and your children on their own.

I’ll give you plenty of guidance about what to do as we move through the session, so you don’t need to worry about feeling awkward. And I’ll have plenty of games up my sleeve to keep little ones entertained.

Two weeks after your session I’ll send you a link to a private online gallery where you can view the fully edited final images and choose which photographs you’d like to include in your package.

The gallery will be live for 7 days whilst you choose your package. I’ll be on the end of the phone if you would like any help choosing your photographs or deciding how to display your new prints.

MONEY BACK GUARANTEE

Surrey family photographer Clare Murthy

I know that choosing a photographer can feel daunting, and you want to be sure that you make the best choice for your family.

I’m confident that you will love the photographs when you view them after your shoot, but in the unlikely event that you don’t I will refund your deposit in full.

You don’t need to commit to any package until you’ve seen the photographs.

When you book your mini session you will see that there is a backup date that we will reschedule your session to if the weather is so bad that we can’t go ahead. This is usually the day after your booked date. 

In the run up to your mini session I’ll keep a close eye on the weather forecast, and I expect you might too! Regardless of what the forecast says, I won’t make any decisions until the evening before your shoot. The reason for this is that I find the forecast can change frequently over the course of a week, and a day that is forecast to be rainy in a week’s time, can often be forecast to be a lovely dry, sunny day once we reach the day before.

Yes. Each mini session package includes some high resolution digital images. Collections two and three include the full set of digital images from your gallery.

In the run up to your mini session I’ll share lots of information to help you prepare – including some tips on what to wear.

I take your privacy very seriously, and will only publish pictures from your shoot in my online portfolios with your permission. If you do give permission the pictures are always shared anonymously (I would never share your or your children’s names.)

I will ask you about this when you book your session, and if you don’t want me to share the pictures from your session you can let me know then.

Yes, absolutely! I hear from lots of families who are getting the whole family together to celebrate a special birthday or anniversary and would like to use the opportunity to have some photographs taken.

In this situation my bespoke family sessions are a better fit. Please get in touch to have a chat about how this could work for your family. You can send me a message using the form at the end of this page, or give me a call on 07522 760530.

Yes, absolutely! If you would like to gift a mini session to someone I can send you a lovely gift certificate for you to give to them, or if it’s short notice I can send it directly to the recipient.

Please send me an email at clare@claremurthy.com to let me know which mini session package you would like to gift. I’ll be back in touch to confirm the next steps within 24 hours.
