BOOK A mini photoshoot TO GET beautiful pictures to share with friends & family
** I follow all the social distancing guidelines **
We all need a bit of a pick-me-up right now. A mini photoshoot is a great way to beautifully capture childhood at a fraction of the cost of a full family photo shoot. That’s why I’m so well known in Twickenham and the surrounding area – I take gorgeous and natural photos of children at an affordable price.
Every year I set aside time to offer outdoor family mini photoshoot sessions. The sessions are:
– 20-30 minutes long in Marble Hill Park or Radnor Gardens, Twickenham
– £95 book fee to reserve your spot
– £295 to download your professionally edited images (approx 30 images) from your own password protected online gallery. This is half the cost of a full family photo shoot
– Duplicates in black & white included
– 5 mounted prints of your choice (7x5inch)
– A video montage of your session to share with friends and family
– take place on specific dates throughout the spring, summer and autumn
Mini photo shoot FAQs
What types of mini sessions do you offer?
20-30 MINUTE SEASONAL SESSIONS: I offer these sessions a few times every year in the spring, autumn and in the run-up to Christmas. They are shorter versions of a full family photo shoot. They are perfect if you have a small family with 1 child. They take place in my studio or in the park. To see what upcoming seasonal sessions I have, and where they take place click HERE.
How should we dress our children and what should we wear?
For other times of the year, I recommend neutral colours, particularly if we are doing a shoot outdoors. If you have more than one child and have more than one session booked, you can match what the children are wearing. For example, you may want your children to wear jeans and white tops. I also ask that shoes are removed when on the studio background, so this may affect what everyone wears if the shoot is indoors.
It is always a good idea to ensure that everyone has freshened up prior to the shoot. I recommend wiping the faces of any babies or small children and brushing their hair immediately before we start. It’s amazing how quickly children’s faces get messy!
Sometimes for very young babies, I take pictures of the little one on someone’s lap so I recommend parents prepare for being in the photos if needed – not wearing big watches and giving their hands some freshening up.
Do I need any props handy?
In order to make babies and small children comfortable, I always suggest bringing toys, and anything that makes them relax. Because of COVID, please bring your own blanket to sit on.
For themed photo shoots I will also have a few themed toys / props with me. You don’t need to have these in the picture if you don’t want and I’ll also have un-themed toys / props with me.
It would also be a good idea to bring a hair brush and anything you or your children will need to freshen up prior to the shoot.
How much are the photos and how do we get them?
My fees depend on which type of session you book. You can find all the details on my booking page HERE or on the booking link that you were provided with.
After your session, I will send you a link to a password protected gallery with your images, with duplicates in black and white. You can order or download your image(s) directly from this site and can also order prints through my professional printers.
As a general rule, I show pre-views of the images on my camera as I take them so families can see the photos as we go along.
