COTSWOLDS CHILDREN'S PHOTOGRAPHER
BASED IN MALMESBURY COVERING CHILDREN'S PHOTOGRAPHY
IN THE COTSWOLDS, WILTSHIRE AND GLOUCESTERSHIRE
When it comes to children photography they are a little easier to follow instructions compared to babies and toddlers. This tends to happen after the age of 4. As a Cotswold child photographer I can create some stunning Fine art Children's Portraits here in my Cotswolds Photography Studio and some beautiful Natural Portraits on location.
I would recommend trying to coordinate your outfits avoiding black, bright white, bright patterns, characters, logos, and sports tops that may distract.
I have a wardrobe full of Brand New Trish Scully Dresses for girls in every size from 2 to 14. I also have boys trousers, braces, shorts and shirts. It helps me if you can send me a family photo before hand and the sizes of your children so I can pick out some outfits and coordinate them when I make the session plan.
If you would like to bring some of your own clothes the best tip I could give is pick three colours and try and find clothes that look good together with this palette. Don't stick to all wearing the same shirt try three different colours that all look good together. Avoid adding another colour on top one person wearing an extra colour will distract.
A great idea for Autumn would a burnt orange, ivory and brown, tan or even mustard. Think of those colours in front of all the beautiful Autumn hues in the leaves it would look fantastic.
Like wise a good idea for spring would be ivories, neutrals and pastels.
Stores tend to have a similar colour scheme for the children clothes that season. Look for all the outfits in one store and they will probably coordinate. For babies neutral colour knit rompers always look fantastic but you don’t have to worry about buying them as I have a lot of those here.
Don't be shy with what you wear. I know you'll probably be the only one in a beautiful dress in the woods but who cares you'll look great in the photos!
With children's portraiture as with all sessions I allow for the whole day. We start here in my studio and do some fine art posed studio portraits and any family photography you require. Then we head outdoors to make sure we get some beautiful outdoor children's photography out and about it the Cotswolds.
Towards the end of the day is best for the outdoor photos as when the sun is heading down we get a much softer light. This is the golden hour. It really is worth staying out to capture your children in the most beautiful soft golden light.
We can work to make it fun for everyone. I like to involve the children in the process and we can take a break for a picnic or for lunch if you require. I want your day to be rememberable and the photos to show that.
There is a play room and garden here which the children can play in when we are not taking photos so they never get bored.
I hope after seeing my Cotswolds Children Photography and reading this you will be convinced to choose me as your Children's Cotswolds Photographer.
A days bespoke photo shoot costs £100. This includes my time both on the day and editing after, use of all the props and editing all the images for you to choose from. This needs to be paid prior to your session by using the booking form below or by bank transfer (Please contact me for details). I am afraid I have had to many people not turn up or cancel the day before. I have to arrange child care
and obviously I keep that day free for you and not take another booking. I can no longer risk everyones time being wasted so it is important you pay the session fee before hand.
After your session we will go though the photos together and you will select the final 20 images you would like edited. I will whats app them to you to check before I send the USB via post. The cost of the final images edited is £250. This needs to be paid on the day. Unfortunately I have had one customer ruin it for everyone where I whats apped the images for her to check then she did not pay so now sadly I have to ask for the final payment to be made on the day of the session. Such a shame as it was the first time it has happened in three years!
Professional Hair and Makeup can be arranged for an additional £40
