In-Home Family Photography Near Basingstoke

Have you ever thought about booking a photographer to come to your home? It was a true pleasure to photograph this family of four. Being January, the family opted for an indoor family lifestyle photography session.  This was the perfect choice, not only because of the weather, but because the children were in their own environment with their own toys surrounding them – everything was familiar, except for me – the photographer.  Once I got down onto the floor and started playing, they soon warmed to me and were very quickly at ease and happy.

Choosing Your Family Photographer

…but here are some of the things to look for when choosing your perfect family photographer. The Style of Photography. Is it what you are looking for? Is it fresh? Does it spark emotion? Most importantly, do you like the photographer’s portfolio?   The Session. Where will the session be held?  Studio, your home, or a beauty spot near you? Will the session be strictly timed to suit your tight schedule, or will the photographer give time for your family’s needs and for children to adjust? Will it be fun and relaxed? Do you prefer to be completely posed in your photographs (traditional portrait style), guided into formations or into […]
