SENTIMENTAL FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY

Turning fleeting into timeless

For families who cherish their memories

aberdeen-family-photographer-recommended

Right off the bat, let's get something straight, if you are here to get:​

  • B-e-a-u-tiful photos

  • Timeless products

  • Fun memories

  • Funny jokes*

*I'll try my best

you're in the right place!

What you will not find here is:

  • Cringe photos

  • Hard-selling (yuck)

  • Baby Pandas (sorry, but try herehere)

Phew! Are we still friends?

Now, I know you haven't come here just to look at the prices, but I also know that life is busy and budgets are a real thing.

So if you want to get down straight to business, follow the link below to get more information on pricing, if you want to learn a little bit more about what your family shoot will entail and why it is not just an investment of time and money, but an heirloom you will be proud to own and add to year after year, read on below.

Family Photography Pricing Information

You will know better than anyone could tell you how quick our babies grow - looking back through the photos from last year - heck, just a few months ago - can you believe how much taller they are, how much blonder their hair is, how quick those gaps from their milk teeth filled out?

Yes, arranging your Family Photo Shoot may feel like a bit of a task, but you know that a year (two, three, five and definitely ten!) from now, you will be forever grateful for taking this step.

Besides, I promise that it will not be the chore you might worry it to be.

Here is my promise to you to make it fun, stress-free and to deliver the most precious images you have ever held in your hands.

Your kids won't have to sit still, we will let them be the characters that they are.

If they aren’t in the mood, we’ll run around and play games, if they are sad we’ll capture timeless portraits of tender cuddles and kisses.

This will not be stressful and you will most-probably-definitely have fun!

Throughout this page (and around the site), you will find some kind words from my previous Clients - seeing families grow is a huge joy for me and a lot of these beautiful people return to me year after year.

Obviously, most of these reviews were written by the lovely moms, but here are a few words I've been able to catch from dads at my shoots:

"alright"

"not as bad as I thought it would be"

"actually fairly painless"

Well, they maybe didn't actually say this on the record, but if we know dads and how much they "love" photos, then we know that these are pretty darn amazing compliments - so don't you worry, once your guy is there, he'll love spending the time with his team - and I'll do the rest.

 

Don't wait for seasons to change, hair to grow, to lose some weight... daym, mama, you look shamazing - just ask dad (and if you asked your four-year-old, if they told you that you look like poop, trust me, this is the top dog compliment - at least I presume so)!

The time is now*, because we will never have 'now' again...

Ready to make it official? Easy!

The Session Fee is due to confirm the date of your photo shoot. The rest of the decision-making on which packages to select will only come after you've seen your beautiful Gallery.

Options available to you are listed below and with every Collection you will receive access to your own password-protected online viewing gallery.

Depending on the Collection, you will be able to select 15 or 40 images for you to keep.

 

And as I am committed to ensuring that your images live beyond the screens, you will always receive a stunning print (or five) to accompany the digitals.

It will be my pleasure to help you decorate your home with show-stopping prints and products and a full list of available artwork options will be presented to you following Gallery reveal.

I can't wait to meet you and photograph your family!

SESSION FEE - £100

The Session Fee confirms your booking.

It does not include any digital images nor prints, but it includes the following elements of your experience with me:

A beautiful digital guide with details of what to expect at your shoot - including styling tips and more

A relaxed and fun photoshoot at a mutually agreed location - I am happy to suggest my favourites or to take guide from you

My time selecting the best images from your session and hand-editing each individual image

A stylish private online gallery of the best images from your session (minimum of 40) for you to browse at your leisure

The session fee is payable when you book your shoot.

PLEASE NOTE, NO DIGITAL FILES, NOR PRINTS ARE INCLUDED IN THIS CHARGE.

Once you've had a chance to review your Gallery and select your favourite images, you can confirm, which of the Collections below you’d like to proceed with. I pride myself on being very transparent with pricing and having a limited number of collections so that it doesn’t get overwhelming - I want to make sure that you get exactly what you want and don't pay for anything you don't need. There will never be any hard sell or expectation for you to spend more than what you feel comfortable with and I am always on hand to help guide you with advice on product ordering.

 

I use some of the best in class printing laboratories for creating the products on offer, hand-picking finishes and styles of materials used - with the knowledge and understanding of what works best with my style of photography.

You can rest assured that when you unpack your artwork and display it in your home, it will evoke the best memories and make you go ‘aaaaaah’ each time you walk by (minus a trip to Ipanema).

All my family photo sessions can last up to 2 hours and take place in a choice of beautiful locations in Aberdeen, surrounding areas or in the comfort of your home.

I live in a beautiful country-side location and regularly scout new places for sessions - some of which are very seasonal and only available for a short time - which makes them both - exclusive and special!

In the lead up to the session, you will receive a beautiful Session Guide, which includes tips on what to wear and how to make the most of your photo shoot.

Have a look at a few sample Client photo shoots - can you imagine your own family in these beautiful settings?

I look forward to meeting and photographing your family.
