Natural Outdoor Family Photo Shoots

I love using natural light and the outdoors to create memorable family images and have recently started to offer these sessions. Black and white portraits in particular are a favourite of mine; capturing a moment in time, an expression and character in timeless monochrome. A walk together outside at a place we mutually agree on will give opportunities for candid shots as well as more staged shots. Being a mum of three gives me plenty of experience at making children (and parents) relax around the camera and having a good sense of humour always helps! 

Outdoor photo shoots usually last between 1- 2 hours and start at £70 for up to an hours shoot in an agreed location. If you're interested in a session, please contact me and we can discuss your personal requirements. Images are usually supplied on a disc as both colour and timeless black and white and as high and low resolution files. High resolution files are for printing and low resolution for sharing on social media and on digital screens. You can choose to print your pictures from the image files supplied or arrange for prints through Vicki and a professional printing lab for superb quality prints to treasure for life.

'I have been wanting some photos of us as a family for years but with 2 small boys who never seem to stand still at the same time, let alone look at a camera at the same time - it just never happened! I got a voucher for Christmas for a photo shoot session with Vicki and she did an amazing job! She was so calm, patient and friendly. Not only did she manage to win around my boys but she also managed to me at ease too - yes, I desperately wanted some family photos but actually hate having my photo taken! I am over the moon with the results. The only problem now is deciding which ones to have up on the wall!! Thank you so much Vicki. xx'

'I can't recommend Vicki highly enough. We had a family photo shoot with her last month and, despite the windy and snowy conditions, she managed to take some lovely pictures of us She made us feel at ease; even our teenage daughter, who isn't keen on her picture being taken, didn't mind. We had a lovely time and are very pleased with the natural looking photos. Perfect!'
