North Wales-based Family Photography
Family photos are some of our most treasured possessions yet why is it we all too often put off taking them because we feel awkward about being in front of the camera?
be in your own family photographs!
Humour me for a second and let’s do a little experiment!
Take out your phone and have a little mindless scroll through the photos in your camera roll and your Facebook. How many times do you actually see yourself in your family photographs!?
We worry so much about not looking great or not being fashionable enough that we actually avoid being in the moment!!
Your kids won’t care about perfection! They’ll just LOVE looking back at family photographs with all of you in them.
Not to mention the fun they’ll have reminiscing about embarrassing hair cuts or sketchy fashion trends.
Add the grandparents and these pictures will become priceless family heirlooms for generations to come! I don’t know about you but we go through family photographs at least once a year talking about when they were taken and what the heck everyone was wearing. A professional family photographer will be able to photograph your family beautifully, especially with some of those breathtaking backdrops North Wales has to offer!
Life happens, whether we want it to or not!
Sometimes unexpected things do happen and loved family members may pass on. It’s pretty normal for most family members to cringe at the thought of having their picture taken. But if you’ve ever lost a loved one, I bet you (a million pounds actually!!) you just won’t care what you look like if only you could have just ONE more picture with your dearly missed loved one.

how it works and how to book your north wales family photographer
what happens after I send an enquiry?
I am primarily a North Wales Wedding Photographer and often busy at weekends, especially during wedding season. There’s always time for cute little ones during the week or on a Sunday though! When I receive your enquiry I will first check my diary for availability and if I’m free we’ll agree on a date and time next. I’m happy to suggest some of my fave locations for your family shoot but feel free to tell me all about yours, too!
I worry about my child(ren) running wild
No need to worry – I like them like that! ;) Most of my clients love the great outdoors and I wouldn’t expect the next generation of adventurers to sit still for hours on end posing for boring uber styled pictures! I’m more than happy for your kiddos to do what they got to do – makes for really natural photographs and relaxed parents. Think of it like taking the whole family on a mini adventure!
do we need to dress up?
Entirely up to you. Think about what type of pictures you are expecting from your session and what you’d like to do with them. If you’re thinking of putting them on a wall – coordinating your outfits probably wouldn’t be a bad idea. Have a little read of What to wear for your family photography session – I’m happy to help you figure out what would work best for you though so feel free to get in touch before your family photography session in North Wales and we’ll have a chat!
what if it rains?
I always suggest shooting around sunset time as it’s the best light there is! This isn’t always practical though (I get that babies and toddlers are often already in bed, especially in summer) and so I’m happy to shoot in any weather, as long as you are. I do draw the line at strong winds & heavy rain though – nobody would enjoy that! If the forecast isn’t looking promising then I’ll happily postpone your family photography session in North Wales. I ONLY shoot outdoors though.
when do we need to pay
Session fees are due in full BEFORE the date agreed for your North Wales Family Photography session. This is to avoid no-shows (it happens, unfortunately).
Current package prices are £75 for up to an hour with 1 framed 8×10 image, £125 for up to 1 hour with 3 framed images or £225 for up to an hour with one large piece of wall art.
how many pictures will we get and when?
Every session/location/family is different and so it’s difficult to predict how many photographs you will receive. I do not include so-called *filler* images in your gallery just to make up numbers and I always aim to deliver 10 – 15 images for you to choose from.
I will share 1-3 teasers from the session with you on the day or the day after and you will receive all of your images in a secure online gallery within 14-21 days after the photography session.
what print will i receive with the package?
You will receive one (1) printed picture of your choice printed in my professional print lab of choice (C41S based in Ellesmere) and framed in a white block frame.
The £75 package includes one 8×10 image in a neutral white frame (as shown below). Other frame options are currently not available with this package but I’m always happy to work out a bespoke quote (which will work out a little more expensive) so do get in touch if you’d like something a little more personal.
thinking about a maternity photoshoot?
They’re magical and you’re beautiful and maternity photoshoots don’t have to be awkward at all!!! Don’t just take my word for it – take a look at this beautiful maternity photography session in Snowdonia.
£75; session fee includes up to an hour’s shoot in a scenic spot in North Wales, a digital gallery, and one 8×10 framed print for you to keep, no hidden extras.
