Family Photography Information 

Make it Personal

For me, booking a natural family photoshoot is about spending quality family time together, and having those memories turned into gorgeous artwork for you to enjoy and remember forever. I feel passionately that a family photoshoot should be very personal – they should be tailored specifically around you and your family, from choosing a location that excites your family, to choosing a time that allows for all members to feel up for it and not tired or hangry!

Choosing the right location is an essential step in making the family photoshoot work for you. Are you a family who likes lots of colourful flowers? Or are you a family who wants to go for a dog walk in a favourite spot? Or maybe all your kids want to do is climb trees or splash in the water? These answers will help us decide upon the perfect location for your shoot.

I have realised over time that if the children are happy and excited (whether they are toddlers or teenagers) then the parents relax and it makes for a far happier, relaxed and more genuine shoot! This has a massive impact on the images. If you’re unsure of a location or don’t know where to start, then please get in contact as I have lots of places that I can recommend.

Duration of a Family Photoshoot

I allow up to 3 hours for a family photoshoot but the duration normally depends on where we go and how much fun we’re having! We can just take it at your pace which is a very relaxing and rewarding way to shoot!

I always bring ‘props’ and ‘rewards’ with me on family shoots which children love, especially the bubbles! It’s great to bring these out if the children are not as engaged as you want them to be or if you just want a natural break!

Generally though, we keep shooting and playing so long as everyone is enjoying themselves! A lot of children can start off feeling self-conscious but when they realise that they’re allowed to run, climb trees or throw leaves around, they tend to relax very quickly and forget that they’re having their photo taken at all!

It’s hard to put into words how amazing our photoshoot experience was with Caroline. We received our photographs yesterday and the whole family can’t stop talking about them – we are all in love with them! Caroline was wonderful with the adults and children alike – being able to give advice and ideas on what would provide the best photographs whilst still being keen on hearing any ideas myself and family had about the shoot and how best to accommodate those. She even took it in her stride when two family members decided they wanted to be models and demanded picture after picture as they ‘posed’!! I literally can’t praise her enough! A wonderful day, wonderful photos and I will definitely be booking Caroline again in the future. My mother described the whole afternoon as ‘inspired’ and I couldn’t agree more xx
THANK YOU CAROLINE!

Beating the Coronavirus Boredom and Stress If the state of other countries is anything to go on, then it is just a matter of time before schools and nurseries are closed in a bid to contain as much of this corona pandemic as possible. And let's face it, there are...

We didn’t quite know what to expect as we set off for our gift of a family photo shoot. But we should not have worried. Caroline is so down to earth, friendly, full of energy and extremely patient. We shall treasure the memories of that morning forever. The portfolio she has created is just fantastic and exactly what we requested – informal mixed shots of everyone having fun together on Shawford Down.

Truly grateful thanks Caroline
