 Everything you need to know before your family shoot 

In order for you to get the most out of your experience, we always encourage you to put some time into planning your family photoshoot. From selecting your outfits to bringing personal items, the more thought you put in, the more your family's personality will be reflected in your portraits.

We know that getting the kids washed, dressed and out the door while avoiding any temper tantrums is an uphill battle. We aren't suggesting that your outfits need to be fit for the catwalk, just that a little thought and planning can go a long way... 

Lots of families embrace matching outfits and this can be great fun. For a softer, more subtle result, try coordinating your outfits instead. You can try complimentary colours such as purple, oranges and reds, neutral and earthy tones for a sophisticated finish or one staple colour for a high impact look.  


Family time is precious and we treasure the moments spent together. Personality is at the heart of what makes our shoots unique, we want to capture those characters and we need your help to do it. Think about what your family enjoy doing together, whether that’s gardening, baking, travelling or perhaps playing musical instruments. From avid bookworms to future England strikers, let your kids uniqueness shine through. 

Your personal items should say ‘this is us’. Have a little browse of our blog for multiple shoot ideas.

Tips for planning

Planning your shoot is a fun, creative process; your whole family can get involved. You will work with one of our incredible photographers to create the perfect mood for your home prints. Have a think about the colours and lighting you’re after, look at your home décor and whether you want to match or contrast. A set colour or small selection of colours being used in your shoot is a great place to start. While we advise you to plan, our wonderful experts are always on hand to help with your shoot and guide you throughout the journey.


Our studio has a large, white curved infinity wall, think of it as your blank canvas... you have the freedom to design portraits that are bespoke to you!


It is studio policy that to validate your promotional session all people booked for a shoot, as agreed at the time of your booking must attend the shoot. The viewing must be attended by all parents. Failure to adhere to this may result in you forfeiting your booking deposit and losing the entitlement to your complimentary images. We reserve the right to not conduct a shoot or a viewing if all people that were agreed to be present do not attend. We would hate for you to have a wasted journey, we know family life is hectic so please call us as soon as possible if you need to reschedule.
