"Matt was brilliant. He was very patient with my 1yr old gaining her trust so she was relaxed around him to take beautiful photos. I would highly recommend Matt.!"

What to Wear

It's vital that you and your family are comfortable in the clothes you wear. You are more than welcome to dress up but, especially with children, if the outfits aren't comfortable then it will show it in the photos!

 

Co-ordinating outfits can bring cohesion to the images especially in a family shoot, but this doesn't necessarily mean matching outfits! Have a think about colours that suit your complexion and you feel good wearing. Confidence is key to a relaxed looking photo and this begins with you being happy in the clothes you are wearing.

 

Try to avoid clothing with patterns, logos, writing, pictures or anything which will be distracting. These things can date the photograph in a negative way! Warm or cool colours, pastels and earthy colours look good in family group pictures.

 

Textures and layers work well – they add real depth to portraits and can be useful sometimes with the British weather.

Location Shoot vs Studio Shoots

Location shoots can be a wonderful way to capture special images in special places that have meaning for your family. We are also happy to shoot these in your own home or garden so that you don't have to travel.

 

Around West Sussex and the surrounding counties of Hampshire, Kent and Surrey, we have magnificent opportunities to shoot in some truly beautiful natural environments. Ranging from the woodlands around Kingly Vale, to the beaches of West Wittering, there are many options.

 

The historic cities of Chichester, Portsmouth and Brighton also offer some amazing locations for photo shoots in a more urban environment, as well as giving the choice to include green spaces in parks and public gardens. Some of the smaller villages like Arundel or Bosham are also full of charm and character and can be great to capture those moments for the family to cherish and pass on through the generations.

Studio photography has different advantages compared to location shots for family photography.

In the studio environment we can control the light and temperature more easily and this is particularly helpful in the colder, darker months. It can also be useful for things like Birthday Cake Smashes etc.

 

Some people also prefer the very neutral background in a studio setting for a more traditional photo.

 

The weather can also play a part in your decision, we will still shoot on location in almost any weather (jumping in puddles can create some lovely photos), but for very young children this might not be practical!

"Matt is a really nice guy and was brilliant and making my children feel relaxed straight away. He encouraged us just to be ourselves and he snapped away and he has given us some amazing photos which will be on our wall for years to come. Thank you Matt!"

"Goodness knows how Matt managed to keep my 3 and 1 year old engaged for the time he did, whilst taking some of the most beautiful pictures. He was so patient and creative - we literally can't over state how delighted we are. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and already have to many!!!"
