Family photoshoots on location and outdoors

One of the best parts about our summer is being able to offer photo-shoots outdoors. Often called lifestyle photoshoots. The benefit is multiple locations within a location and the relaxed un-staged photographs we can create.

This latest shoot as shown in the featured image was at Wollaton Hall near Nottingham. Its a stunning location and the couple also had there pre-wedding photo-shoot there. For the film buffs out there its also the filming location for the Batman films directed by Christopher Nolan. Although I usually shoot closer to home I can shoot anywhere. Closer to my home is Walkers Nurseries, Finningley with stunning grounds. Cusworth Hall just off the A1 Doncaster or Clumber Park, although they now charge per person not per car.

These shoots start from as little as £45. But I would quote based on what you need and where.


Cakey baby photoshoot

I call these cake smash photoshoots, but some call them cakey baby, either way there a great fun way to celebrate your young ones birthday. There is no age limit for these, meaning older children can have them.

The cakes are custom made and can be any colour and allergies are catered for. There will be some new cake shapes available too. I had a chat with my cake maker and agreed to include more styles, like love heart shaped etc. A cake shoot starts from £65 and for that you get the shoot, cake and a 10×8 print. You will view your images in a private online gallery, with your own custom password.

I offer these in your own home or in a studio I use in Harworth. The price will only be more if you live out of area from DN11. If you have any questions please do get in touch.


Wedding Prep Photography

I sometimes get asked what do I do for the wedding prep photography. The answer is simply taking photographs of you all getting ready. I observe and document the occasion, not getting in the way or asking for posed shots. Of course you can arrange this if you wish but I can get the images as things happen.
As you can see there’s a posed shot once the make-up is on, and sometimes a couple once the dress is on.
But I know how stressful the getting ready process is, so its a relaxed photography session.
I also usually arrive 2 hours before the ceremony to ensure most of the prep has started and everyone is happy for there photographs to be taken.

These images are great for the groom to see at a later stage when you view all your photographs together and if having a wedding book they help tell the story of how the day started. Although the focus here is on the bride, if the groom is getting ready close by or in the same hotel we can get some of him getting ready too, but the gents don’t take as long and often don’t require this part of the service.

If you want to chat about your wedding day and see if I would be the person to capture your memories please do get in touch, the consultations are free and no sales involved.
