Children & Families

“Today’s the day to remind your kids that there’s nothing more important than family”

Children grow up so fast, changing each day, often leaving you wondering where the years went. We often forget if we are the one holding the camera during family outings that we will be absent from those precious memories.

A family photoshoot with the kids is a fun and unique time to spend together resulting in a treasured keepsake that will grace your walls for years to come and forever remind you of your unconditional love between each family member, young and old.

As adults we always feel there is always a better time to have our photo taken, when we have a tan, have lost a few pounds etc. etc. but your children are rapidly changing too.  Today is a great time to do it!  Don’t lose this moment forever.

We’ve now had 3 photo shoots with Gemma, she is extremely knowledgeable about what she does, she is helpful & friendly. Her studio is lovely, it’s clean & full of amazing props. Gemma is fantastic with babies & young children & puts you all at ease during the shoot & all our images have been gorgeous. I would totally recommend her as a photographer

About the Studio

Your family photoshoot will take place in the larger of the two photography studios here at Enchanted Photography.

When it comes to kids photography space is imperative this room is the most versatile, designed in a L shape with a curved white wall for contemporary and modern style images and an array of designed walls to suit your photo ideas and home decor including a faux white brick wall as well seamless colours for more classic images.

Within the 1,500 sq ft studio premises there is also a separate changing room with full length mirror plus a kitchen area for hot/cold drinks and treats.

Finally there is parking directly outside for your convenience.

Before Your Family Photo Shoot

Feeling relaxed and comfortable is the best way to get fun and authentic moments in front of the camera.

I’d love to get to know you before the photoshoot to find out more about your kids, what your family likes and dislikes, what games you play at home etv so I can plan your photoshoot to make everyone feel at ease while in the studio.

We can also talk about your home colour scheme and décor so I can design the sets and props to perfectly suit your home.

I will share my 8+ years of experience photographing children and families, and let you know what clothes will look best and the items from the home that will really add something to the images.

During Your Photoshoot

On the day of your family photoshoot, you will be welcomed into the largest photo studio which is perfect for capturing high energy as well as soft and natural images.

My style is best described as contemporary, fun and natural. I try to avoid traditionally staged photos and aim to create a fun atmosphere for adults and kids alike to capture real moments and natural expressions.

I understand that children often like to roll to their own agenda and I have learned now to slowly guide them into my poses whilst they make themselves at home in a way only kids know how! Authentic, real life moments and emotions are the greatest to look back on.

After Your Family Photo Shoot

What happens after your photoshoot is a mystery to many so let me tell you more. Between your photo shoot and viewing session, each and every image is hand edited to remove blemishes and to make the colours of your photos look perfect.

Just one week later, we will meet again at the photography studio to take a look at the images on a cinema style screen. Your time during this session is often incredibly emotional as you see captured moments that will document the love you share as a family.

The room has been designed with two big leather sofas and a fireplace to give it a homely feel, and to help you visualise your own images in the samples on display.

We can go through each image together, choosing your favourite photos to display as wall art in your home and selecting those you wish to have digitally to share your story with friends and family.

What does it cost?

To book a family or child photoshoot there is a booking fee relevant to your preferred session type as detailed in the grids below.

You then can choose to have your favourite 10 or 20 images to be provided as high resolution digital downloads priced at £175 and £250 respectively. These are perfect for storing on your mobile phone, sharing on social media and getting printed photos made from. 

To compliment your digital images I sell a selection of high quality printed products, built to last the test of time, which can be purchased from just £75, these included fine art canvases, acrylic panels, photo cubes, albums and more.

Came to the studio today with my little princess, it felt so warm, welcoming and friendly – fet so comfortable and there were lots of different ideas floating about – can’t wait to see the end result – thanks again Gemma. Willow-Rose was a bit of a grumpy fairy at times but was soon giggling and dancing round – can’t recommend Enchanted Photography enough – huge thanks.

Why choose Enchanted Photography?

  • SPACIOUS STUDIO

    We all know children don’t like to sit still for very long, nor do they like to be told what to do, so an exciting, energy-filled family photoshoot needs space for everyone to look and feel natural.  It’s for this reason that I chose to create one large studio for my family portraits with professional lighting and multiple background choices, perfect for expressive kids and doting parents.

    A kitchen area is located in the foyer for a quick drink stop mid session, with the toilet just down the corridor.  A large changing room is provided for you to touch up make up and change your outfits.

  • NO LAZY PHOTOGRAPHY HERE

    Kids are great at bringing their imaginative ideas and blossoming characters to photoshots and it’s all to easy to sit and click the camera and hope for the best.

    I love the energy kids bring so I don’t just stand on the sidelines and watch. I will happily get down on the floor with the children, sing songs and be knocked on the head with a football to capture the moment as I guide them into poses fit for your home.

  • TIME AND PATIENCE

    I understand for many younger members of the family, a large photography studio and a big camera can be a scary thing. That’s why I aim to brefriend your children before I even take a photo.  Sharing my books, toys and sometimes even a treat, I am happy to work with even the most shy children who by the end of the shoot will be singing the wheels on the bus with me.

    Similarly I understand that special needs children often need to be treated in a calmer and more functional manner, with time allowed for them to familiarise with their surroundings.  During our pre-shoot chats it’s great to find out more so I can prepare and approach the situation to suit your childs individual needs.

  • FLEXIBLE PRODUCT OPTIONS

    I understand you will want high quality digital copies of your favourite images to share with your friends and family so these are included as standard with your entry package.

    To avoid your printed products fading quicker than your memory, I pride myself in choosing only the highest quality printed product suppliers so you can take home your favourite photos at wall art to put up in your home or printed in an album that will last the test of time and can be passed through the generations.
