Family photography Haywards Heath

As a family photographer in the Haywards Heath area I’ve photographed hundreds of families over the ten years I’ve been in business.  I thought I’d do a blog post on the questions I’m asked most frequently.  Please do get in touch if there’s anything I haven’t answered for you here!

HOW LONG DOES A FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION LAST?

Sessions tend to last between one and two hours. I am generally led by your children; I’m happy to keep photographing as long as they are enjoying themselves but if they need a little snack break or would like an outfit change then that is fine too!

CAN WE HAVE OUR FAMILY PHOTOSHOOT AT HOME?

Yes of course!  In fact the majority of my photoshoots take place at the family home.  We usually start in the garden and then go for wander, we might fight a gorgeous country lane or go on your local dog walk.  If you’d rather not have you shoot at home I can suggest alternative locations.  I have a limited number of family shoot passes for Borde Hill Gardens, Nr Haywards Heath if you’d like your shoot there.

DO YOU PROVIDE BLACK AND WHITE PHOTOGRAPHS TOO?

Most of my images are colour but I do provide a selection of black and white images too, depending on what works best for each particular image.  If you’re rather partial to black and white just let me know and I’ll enclose some extra in your gallery.  I can always convert a colour image to black and white once you’ve seen your images too – just ask!

CAN WE INCLUDE OUR PETS?

A big fat yes!  I’m more than happy to include your pets – they are an important part of the family too!  

DO YOU TRAVEL OUTSIDE OF THE HAYWARDS HEATH AREA?

I’m based in Ardingly, near Haywards Heath and regularly photograph families around Haywards Heath, Horsham, Crawley, East Grinstead, Chailey and Ditchling as well as the surrounding villages.  I’m always happy to travel futher afield, just let me know where you are.

WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS?

If it is pouring with rain let’s re-schedule.  I am happy to shoot in all other weathers though – cloudy daylight is actually more flattering than bright sunshine!  I’m also usually pretty time-flexible on the day so happy to alter the time according to the forecast if need be.
