After owning a family photography studios for 5 years Karen much prefers to photograph Children outside on location. Why photograph on a boring white background when you can have the world as your background!
Working with natural soft sunlight is so much softer on the skin than harsh studio lights. It doesn't even have to be a sunny day to get the best shots in fact a cloudy day is perfect as the clouds act as a soft box around the sun making the skin look so soft.
With outdoor sessions & the British weather can be sometimes be tricky (Indoor obviously not a prob!) but Karen will just reschedule it's not a problem and can arrange another date & get it in the diary.
Before the session Karen will chat about location and clothing/styling/props & also anything else regarding the kids .. any illnesses etc & also any specific photos you may want.
Karen can either come to your house to meet the kids and Photograph them in their natural surroundings playing with their own toys or even doing a bit of cooking in the Kitchen! Or we can meet at an agreed location. Once the kids have got used to Karen (& her big camera) she will interact with kids & make the photoshoot as much fun as possible.
Karen has been photographing Kids for over 11 years in her studio and on location so understands 100% the best way to capture natural fun images that will be in your family for many years to come.

Some extra reading explaining the session fee for Family & Lifestyle shoots only
The digital revolution has brought amazing flexibility and the ability to control various factors during the image taking and making process. Photographers, the hobbyist, the professional, the amateur all benefit from this ability to manipulate pixels. However, with flexibility comes a price. Digital camera equipment is still considerably more expensive when you factor in its’ lifespan, the need for additional resources for processing those images, the time it takes to get a usable image and the effort that goes into creating a work of photographic art.
The cost of TIME
Approaching it from a time standpoint, let’s imagine that you have hired a photographer who has work that you love. This photographer is traveling an hour to your destination this is an example of an outdoor on-location shoot to photograph your session. Here is an example of a time break down:
* session prep time (30 mins – 1 hour, includes equipment and back up equipment checks vehicle checks)
* travel time to session
*30 minutes to set up (Newborn shoot)
*60 minutes-1 hour with client photographing subject - 4 hours Newborn Shoot
* travel time FROM session
* 30-45 minutes uploading time from digital cards from camera to computer
* 30-45 minutes time spent backing up the original images* Half a day editing time to present you with a diverse gallery of edited images
8-9 HOURS EDITING IMAGES
* 1 hour prep time getting ready for ordering
*1 hour time with client for ordering images
* 1 hour sorting through and checking order
* 30 minutes-1 hour prep time for delivery
* 30 minutes-1 hour getting order shipped
* any additional phone time or time needed for add on ordering, shipment issues, quality issues/email communication
In this example, the time spent per client can range from just under 13 hours to 28 hours – dependent on the photographer’s level of service. This is time dedicated only to ONE session. When I charge only £75 (aka SESSION FEE) you are not just paying for the one-two hours of session time, you are paying for my 12-19 hours complete time for your session. All this for £75 is a bargain!
