Not everyone feels comfortable in front of the camera, including little ones, and for those people a studio environment is usually the last place they want to be. If you, your partner, or little one struggle to relax in front of the camera a location shoot is the perfect alternative to a more traditional family portrait. I can completely relate to this as I actually hate being in front of the camera myself, I'm much happier and more comfortable behind the lens than I am in front of it!
I work within a number of locations within Hertfordshire but am also happy to travel to a location of your choice if you prefer. (A travel surcharge will be added for location shoots that take place more than 15 miles from my home-studio in Buntingford, Hertfordshire.)
I am very outdoorsy and spend alot of time outside exploring our beautiful county with my own children, who are 7 and 2. I'm always finding new and beautiful locations within Hertfordshire that are perfect for photos so if you think an outdoor session is right for you but can't think of anywhere then please do let me know as I have a long list of locations I'm used to working in and am happy to provide suggestions.
My most popular location sessions take place in the Lavender Fields, in Hitchin, Hertfordshire. I have become well known for these over the last few years and it's one of my favourite places to shoot during the summer months.
There are certain times of year that are best suited to particular locations so if there is a certain look/setting you have in mind please do get in touch early to discuss with me so I can advise the optimum time of year for your shoot to take place, and guarantee you a slot.
Location is ideal for energetic and outdoorsy children who are always on the go and struggle to sit still or follow instruction for a studio-based shoot. Letting them explore in a more natural environment allows them to be themselves, relax and let their guard down, enabling me to capture beautiful, natural portraits of your child on their adventures. It's also a great way to include a beloved pet in the family portraits.
Location sessions require a booking fee of £99, after your session you will be able to view your images and choose from a selection of packages. Your booking fee will be deducted from whatever package you choose.
Due to the demands of running a busy studio these sessions are very limited, and are sometimes restricted to set dates. I'd love to have a chat with you to discuss your requirements and advise the best options available to you.
