Reading Berkshire Studio Large Group Family Portraits
Are you are celebrating a special family occasion such as a new arrival or a special birthday, maybe an anniversary, then why not mark it with a family portrait? Family photoshoots are a great experience for everyone involved and you will receive a great set of photographs that you will treasure for always. Or if you just want to get the whole family together for a photo shoot session, I can comfortably shoot over 15 family members, which can be taken as a whole group, then the individual families can the get together into smaller groups and have their own shoot as well, the combination is endless and can all be done in one sitting which can be booked as a 2hr session. This of course will need to be planned as it can be difficult to get everybody together which I understand, that is why you can book weekends months in advance if necessary.
I have a great deal of experience in family portraits and will ensure that everybody has an enjoyable time. I don’t just take family photographs; my aim is always to capture that special spark that makes your family unique.
First I will spend some time talking to you and your family, getting to know all of you and understanding you, your tastes, your story, and your style. Some families like to portray a fun, vibrant and energetic style; others prefer a classic approach which is timeless and mellow; perhaps your family is dramatic and aspirational; there is no end to the possibilities.
I will discuss what you would like, and the best portrait combinations. I will give you advice on what to wear for example: Keep it simple, solid colours are best, try to avoid large bold patterns and bright colours as they draw attention away from your face, you may want a full length pose so make sure you coordinate clothing from head to toe. Also keep the clothing consistent, try to dress everyone in the same style for example you don’t really want to mix casual with formal. Everybody is welcome; children, parents, grandparents, even great-grandparents – you can even bring your family pet. Some families like to include toys, hats and other props to help to express everybody’s personality, if you’re not sure what you want I can help you choose a background that suits your needs. I work with a black and white sheet, but if this is not the backdrop for you please ask for others.
After the shoot you will have a secure online gallery which is password protected where you and your family will be able to view the finished product, you then just have to decide which photographs you like and how you want to show them, for example do you want them all on a jpeg, would you like them framed, all the framed photographs are bespoke varying in sizes, do you prefer a book or maybe a canvas which tells a story in it’s on unique and artistic way the choice is endless and something we can discuss at the time.
My family portraits will provide you with happy memories that you will cherish for always and never forget. I pride myself on great value for money and am very clear on prices so you don’t get any nasty shocks. I am sure you’ll find something you love with prices to suit everyone’s budget.
