Family Portraits - Out on location, in your environment, having FUN!

I love nothing more than shooing fun, natural on location little family photography sessions. Photographing in your child’s environment is perfect for family portraits as it means your children are being themselves: playing, climbing trees, jumping, running etc. All the action captured! I’ll take a few ‘posed photos’ too, but mostly in action photos.

Our Family Portraits are perfect for families:

  • Want natural family photos, environmental portraits
  • Kids who don’t sit still
  • No Cheese! Nothing forced!
  • Enjoyable and fun shoots
  • Flexible Payments

If you are looking for fun, natural, on-location (not in a studio) family portraits in Northamptonshire or surrounding counties, then get in contact.

On location or studio family photography?

Why shoot family portraits out on location? Well, there’s nothing wrong with studio shot family portraits, but it’s not our style as we prefer a more natural approach. Studio shot portraits do have its benefits, like a controlled environment, lighting and weather! This is though is not as an inviting environment for children and families to be themselves. Similar to our wedding photography, we like to keep the family portrait photography less staged and use natural colours and backdrops and use beautiful natural light!

The world is our studio!

We go out on-location shooting the ‘portraits’ in woods, parks or lovely green spaces. You can choose too, especially great if you have somewhere special or meaningful to you a family. It’s important to start slow and gain the trust of the children first, this is why ‘going for a walk’ works well. Spending time doing normal things helps relieve tension and anxiety (for parents too!), but also build trust and rapport.

About Me

Hi, I’m Karla, Mum, Wife and Photographer!

I work with my husband, Simon shooting lots of beautiful weddings. But after weddings come, babies and families! Being so busy with weddings has meant sadly we have not time to shoot family portraits or maternity photography. The 2020 pandemic has given us time to stop, reflect and adjust our business to what matters to us. We both want to continue the relationship we had with all the lovely couples and their families, but also build new relationships too.

Being a working Mum and having three young boys myself, I understand that whole family dynamic and the difficulties it (usually) throws.  Getting my own children to stand and smile, I know they’ll just pull ‘that face’ they always do; something silly or give an awkward/weird grin. There’s nothing wrong with that, but it doesn’t reflect them as a person. That’s why photographing family shoots out and about in their environment, playing yields much better results. Natural laughter, smiles and fun; create much more invoking memories. I really enjoy capturing family shoots, they are so much fun for everyone.

I love nothing more than connecting with families and capturing beautiful shots, that I know will be so treasured for a lifetime. This makes me feel all warm inside!

Rain and family shoots aren’t a lot of fun. Unless you want the soggy look! We will check the weather the day before the shoot and if it’s looking like a high chance of rain we will send you a request to reschedule.

How do we book you?

Select the from the products below: ‘Family Portrait Session’ or ‘Maternity and Bump’ below and checkout and pay. We will send you a calendar where you can book a time that is convenient for you.

How many people can we have in a family shoot?

No more than 8 people are ideal. I can shoot a session with more people if we extend the session. In the case of an extended family session we make the session about 2 hours long. ‘Extended sessions’ are great for getting extended or both families into the family shoot.

What should we wear?

Colourful clothes that match the season and weather. If it’s likely to be muddy, stick your comfy walking boots on and let the kids jump in puddles wearing their boots! The most important thing is you feel comfortable.
