What is a family portrait session?
Family portrait sessions are the perfect way to create memories in images. In the same way that your family is unique, no two family portrait sessions, even in a shared location, ever unfold in quite the same way! Whether you choose a studio or location setting, I aim to get a brilliant set of portraits during your informal session. This will bring out your family’s giggly, bouncy best, and will help capture those special characteristics that make your family as unique as it is.
“I knew from the moment we met, that Beverley was going to be the ideal photographer to capture a mile stone for my family. My mums 80th, my daughters 21st and my husbands 50th. Beverley made everyone feel very relaxed and gave us all great tips on how to pose to make sure we looked the Super Models we are!! The children and babies loved her because Beverley was so relaxed they relaxed with her, resulting in photos that will be forever cherished . I have 3 large prints in my home taking pride of place and Beverley is now very much part of that great day. What put her above her competitors? Her portfolio, her kindness, and her understanding of what I needed from that day, willingness to not only come to the house, but to also follow us to the venue; the whole event captured. Her confidence dealing with dogs running riot and a half tipsy but very happy family didn’t phase her at all! We forgot she was there snapping away, what more could we ask? Nothing x” Louise Bailey.

Where do you love spending time with your family? Whether its in a local park or any place that your family enjoys playing together, or even somewhere completely new, my aim is to create time for you and your children to relax and simply enjoy being a family. Technology has brought lots of great improvements to our lives, but it has also created barriers in our families, where everyone sits together, but plays independently. A family portrait session is an opportunity to put away the iPad and X-Box and rediscover simpler less stressful times. (If the weather is really horrid, then we can always come indoors and have some studio fun, or reschedule for another day.) This natural approach guarantees the best chances to make light, bright images that you instantly recognise as being you, at your very best. Relaxed and having fun.
What does a family portrait cost?
Session fees start at £45 for a studio session; £75 for a lifestyle session; prints start at £22.50 for an art mounted 7″ x 5″ print and packages start at £250. There is no minimum purchase required, and no pressure to buy anything; although typically clients spend a minimum of £250 for their photography experience. I promise you will love your photos and if you don’t, I will gladly refund your session fee.
