Family Photoshoots

 

WITH BENSON PHOTOGRAPHER RACHEL TENNANT

Thank you for visiting Hazelnut Photography. I am Rachel Tennant, a Benson family photographer.  I specialise in vibrant, natural family portraits in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside.

I have been photographing families for over 5 years, capturing the joy and connections in all those little moments. Whether it is for a special occasion, or to create lasting memories to share and display on your walls for years to come, I will capture those special times and cherished memories in a fun and natural way.  My work has been featured in Vogue Italia on several occasions, as well as receiving recognition, with a number of photography awards.

“We can’t stop looking at our amazing images. We love them!”

How long do Family Photoshoots take?

Your family photoshoot will take between 1-1.5 hours, but don’t worry, I won’t be watching the clock!

When is the best time of day for my family photoshoot?

The best time for outdoor photoshoots is either the morning or the late afternoon evening when the sun is lower in the sky. The midday sun can cast hard shadows and reduce our options for photos. However, you also need to consider what time of day is best for your children; do they nap? When are they in the best mood to ‘perform’ for the camera?

What happens on the day?

We will agree on a time and place to meet. I like to take a few minutes to get to know your little ones, we can have a quick chat about your images and particular shots you might want and then we’ll set off. I will begin by hanging back while we walk to capture some candid images of your family. I will then take you to a number of locations that are perfect for shots together. I will capture you as a family as well as individual images to give you as much choice as possible.

What happens if the weather is bad?

If it is forecast to rain, we can do one of two things; we can reschedule your photoshoot to another day, or if the rain is light and you are happy to don your raincoats and wellies and persevere, then we can enjoy a fun photoshoot enjoying umbrellas and puddle jumping! The choice is yours!

What should I wear to my photoshoot?

Always dress so you feel comfortable! But to really make your images look as special as possible, I recommend taking time to plan your families clothing. Be yourself! Think about what clothes define the sort of photoshoot you want! If that means raincoats and wellies – go for it! Avoid any obvious labels on clothes or bold patterns. These can be distracting in the images when all eyes should be on you! You may want to opt for subtle neutral colours. This includes whites and pastel shades such as creams, pinks and blues. Strong, rich, bold colours can work well too! Such as deep pinks, rich purples and navy blues.

Fine art for your home

After your session you can choose from a wide range of beautiful wall art perfect to suit any home.
