Each Spring Family photo session lasts 45mins and we will use at least 3 gorgeous places in the park to take your photos, included in the session is 5 digital images of your choice.
How to book your Outdoor Family Photoshoot at Lightwater Country Park:
Choose your day and time and you can pay for the photo session online as you go through the booking system.
When you arrive on the day you can park near the cafe, and then we can meet nearby in the picnic area where we can plan your photo shoot together. If you can arrive 5-10mins before your shoot then if any family members need anything then there will be plenty of time. If you have any questions regarding your photoshoot please contact me on 07976 397638 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Lightwater Country Park is the perfect setting for a Spring Family Photo shoot, we will take you to 3 great locations in the park, there will also be a styled teepee shoot as an option on the day around the gorgeous lake and woodland areas where we will take the photos. The park is easy to access from the M3, has good facilities, cafe and play park.
If the weather is bad on 23rd or 24th I will contact you if we cannot go ahead please keep if possible the 7th and 8th May free in case we have to reschedule.
These are some tips to get the most out of your family photo session:
1. CHOOSE A GOOD TIME OF DAY:
When you are booking your photoshoot, choose a time that is suitable around your family, especially if you have young children and they might need a sleep.
2. MAKE TIME TO GET READY:
Allow plenty of time to get ready and get to the location, there is nothing worse than arriving stressed or late! Mums are often rushing around getting everyone ready and dressed for the shoot. If you have time to prepare everyone will feel happy and confident during the shoot, this will definitely reflect in the photos! Plan your outfit in advance of the day, don’t leave it until the last minute. Feel free to text me photos of your wardrobe if you’re having a hard time choosing! I’m happy to help.
3. PREPARE THE FAMILY:
Tell them what is going to happen, that it’s going to fun! Maybe come up with some ideas of what you are looking for together or bring some props to personalise your photos. When you do something you love doing together, I will be there taking some natural and beautiful photographs.
4. HAVE FUN WITH YOUR FAMILY:
Don’t be afraid to pick up your children and play with them. Have fun, Laugh, Joke, hug and play – show emotion. By doing these things will allow me to capture you and tell your story through the photos we create together.
Help me create more candid shots by playing with your children!
5. THE BEST PHOTOS CAN BE THE ONES WHEN YOU AREN’T LOOKING AT THE CAMERA:
Having fun with your family is the key to great natural photos and some of the best photographs are often the ones where you are not looking at me.
6. DADS AND TEENAGERS:
I understand that some of the family members might not want to take part in the photoshoot, but when they know how fun we can make it then they are normally the ones that give so much to the photos when we least expect it.
7. BRING A DRINK OR SNACK FOR YOUR CHILDREN:
If you have young children please feel free to bring something for your children to eat and drink, maybe even some surprise treats that might help to get their winning smiles!
8. I AM A PARENT:
I understand that children might need a break for a drink, need a diversion, they might get dirty, that a 2-hour photo shoot will be too long! I will help to make the photo session as fun as possible! I have been photographing families for over 15 years, so I have some great ideas to ensure we get everyone having fun and smiling!
9. ARE THERE ANY SHOTS YOU WANT?
Please let me know any specific photos you are looking for; you are welcome to send me a list in advance. Do you want some photos of your children individually for example? Maybe you with the children and then dad with the children…
After the photo shoot your images will be typically will be ready around 2 weeks later on your own online gallery where you can choose your favourites. If you need any help with displaying the photographs within your home, please book a time with me and I will help you with framing and display options.
