Family Portrait Photography FAQ
WHAT IS YOUR APPROACH AS A FAMILY PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER?
I work to capture the smiles, happiness and warmth of a family. I like to keep a relaxed atmosphere where we simply take a walk through a chosen location and taking photos as we go along including all the moments in-between.

WHERE ARE YOU BASED?
I live in Canterbury, Kent, and spend much of my time shooting in London too.
HOW MANY PHOTOS DO YOU PROVIDE?
I aim to provide approximately 50 high quality of photos from several different scenes.
HOW DO WE GET OUR PHOTOS?
I use a service called 'pixieset' which provides a beautiful and secure online album where you can share and download photos. It also allows you to purchase prints and albums through 'loxley colour,' a high quality print lab located here in the UK.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS?
Times can vary slightly in peak periods but I aim to provide the final photos within 1 week.
HOW LONG IS A FAMILY PORTRAIT SESSION?
Usually it will be between 1-2 hours long depending on the location. I don’t like to be restricted to strict timings and instead prefer to focus on getting all the photos we need to get the job done well.
HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?
To secure a family portrait session just send me an email and I will send you an invoice for a deposit of £40. The deposit is refundable if you cancel a week in advance. Once I receive the deposit the date will be locked in!
WHAT IF THE WEATHER IS BAD?
I will be keeping an eye on the weather forecast on the days running up to the shoot. If there is a storm or very bad rain, we can reschedule to another date.
DO WE OWN THE COPYRIGHT OF THE IMAGES?
Not really. You have a license to print and share your photographs. The full copyright is retained by me. All that means is that you can’t sell, modify or enter the photographs in competitions.
CAN OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS ORDER PRINTS?
Yes! You’ll be able to share your images via the online album where other family members can download images to print themselves or purchase prints via Loxley Colour Labs.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I (THE PHOTOGRAPHER) AM ILL?
I do my best to take care of myself but if I really am horribly sick or have broken a leg I will let you know well before the shoot begins. We can reschedule for when I am recovered or I can also arrange for another photographer with a similar style to me to take the session.
