Welcome!

Portrait of photographer Alex Rickard leaning against a wall on a sunny day

Thank you for visiting my children’s and family photography page.  I’m Alex, a portrait photographer based near Haywards Heath and I’ve photographed hundreds of families in Sussex during the 10 years that I’ve been in business.  The majority of my family photoshoots take place at your family home or the beautiful Sussex countryside where we are lucky enough to live.

I’ve put together lots of information to help you plan your family photoshoot but do, of course, get in touch if you’d like to chat more.  My weekend shoots are often booked months in advance so please get in touch early if you have a particular date in mind.

Some of my favourite images from my Family Photoshoots

It’s so hard to pick favourites, but here is a small selection which illustrates my colourful and vibrant style of children’s and family photography.  Please click on the images below to enlarge them and view them at better quality.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT MY FAMILY PHOTOSHOOTS IN SUSSEX

WHERE DO YOU WORK?

The majority of my family photoshoots take place in Sussex but I’m also happy to travel a bit further afield; such shoots may require an additional charge to cover travel time and expenses.

WHERE WILL MY SHOOT TAKE PLACE?

I can come to your home or we can find a mutually convenient location such as a local park, woodland etc.  I’m happy to photograph virtually anywhere as long as I have permission to do so.  

WHAT 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.

 

 

HOW LONG DO I NEED TO ALLOW FOR THE SESSION?

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.

WHAT IF SOMEONE IS ILL?

I’m happy to postpone your session if someone is ill – sick children do not make happy photos. Please let me know as soon as possible if you think you might have to reschedule.

Do you have a studio?

I prefer to photograph families outside and therefore I don’t offer studio photography for family photoshoots.

CAN WE INCLUDE OUR PETS IN OUR FAMILY PHOTOSHOOT?

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

DO YOU PROVIDE BLACK & 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’d like to see a particular image in black and white once you have seen your pictures just ask!

HOW MUCH DO FAMILIES USUALLY SPEND?

Families usually invest between £495 and £2,000 on their digital files or printed products after their session.

CAN WE BUY DIGITAL FILES?
Yes of course!  Digital files are available to purchase after your shoot. You will be given permission to print from them and to share for personal use.

DO YOU HAVE A NEWSLETTER?
 

Yes and I promise I won’t spam you!  I’ll keep you posted with my latest offers etc.

There’s a sign up button on my home page, head on over and just pop in your email!
