My Family portrait sessions are all about capturing interaction, fun and the bond between your family, the way you’s live, laugh & love together, giving your family  lovely photographic memories to look back on.

Your family photoshoot can take place either at your home, the studio, or at an outdoor location which I recommend to give a more relaxed and natural feel for your family portrait photos with a beautiful setting.

Working with your family outdoors is ideal if you have toddlers and younger children as they are able to roam freely and explore, great for capturing those  candid moments and genuine expressions

Depending on what style of photographs you would like hanging on your wall, we can discuss whether a studio, home or outdoor setting will work best.

I schedule in Family photoshoots up to 1 hour which gives plenty of time to capture a good variety of images for your gallery.

If outdoors we will be moving around to various spots within the location to create various scenes for your gallery of photos.

Think about what colours would work well for the time of year, and think about various tones that will contrast well with each other. I would recommend avoiding anything with large logos or pictures on the front of T-shirts/jumpers as it can be distracting on your family portrait

There are lots of great resources on line now showing clothing examples for family photoshoots, I will arrange a chat with you over the phone prior to the session to go over everything in more detail.

Its advisable to bring along a change of clothing/shoes for children, baby wipes, snacks & water. Pack a favourite toy that will make them smile or give them some comfort should they get a little overwhelmed at any point. Always good to offer a little incentive (like somewhere they want to go or a favourite sweet treat) rewarding them at the end of the photoshoot.

Because we can never guarantee the good old English weather even when the forecast is looking ok, its never a problem to reschedule if needed or we could head over to the studio in North Shields which is equipped with backdrops and studio lighting. If however you would prefer an outdoor setting then best to reschedule to ensure you get the images you want hanging on your wall.

Your images will be ready to view within 3 weeks from your photoshoot. I will contact you within 2 weeks to arrange your preview session where I can come out to your home and play the photos via a slideshow on your TV.

I have a selection of beautiful wall products which I can bring along for you to see how they would look in your home.

“We had an outdoor family shoot with Zoe in the autumn and our pictures are gorgeous. Zoe was so professional and brilliant with the kids, she made us feel so relaxed and captured the fun and crazy nature of our family. We wouldn’t hesitate to ask Zoe for further shoots in the future and highly recommend her work”
