You choose the location and time of photoshoot

How long do Family Photoshoot 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.


Stunningly Beautiful

Rachel is absolutely fantastic!

Her work is stunningly beautiful. We’ve had several family photoshoots now and I’ve even gone on to use Rachel for product photos for my business. Highly recommend!

She pours her whole heart into her work

Rachel is such a talented photographer. We have had two family portraits done with her and love them so much have one that was made into a 20×30 wooden panel! It is a centrepiece in our home and will treasure it for years to come!

She is so warm and kind and you can really tell she loves what she does. She pours her whole heart into her work and it shows! Thank you so much for such wonderful memories!
