Family photography is such a special thing to be able to capture. We have a young family and are constantly surprised at how quickly time can pass and we love looking back at photographs which help us savour the special memories. We love documentary style photography which is lucky as we haven't yet met any children who want to sit still for hours posing for photos!

We will help you record precious moments of your child or snapshots of your whole family. Having high resolution images gives you the option of printing large canvas wall hangings or photographs as well as the smaller album photos. We still love a printed photograph or photobook that can be passed down through the generations as a historical document of your family.

Single person/ Child 1 Hour Photoshoot £200

Minimum of 10 photographs 

Fully edited 

Online gallery for ease of download ''USB stick available if required)

Designed for parents who want some individual photos of their child.  These often work best at a location that you are familiar with and we'll go for a wander to find some nice natural light and can capture the moments as they happen in a spontaneous way. We'll help you relax and give you time to be yourselves so we can get some photos where you can really see their little personality.

 

 

The Family Pack designed for 2 or more adults/children/pets 

£500

 

Up to 5 people in total. I allow up to 3 hours for this type of shoot and I aim to get a minimum of 15 shots (possibly more depending on how happy and compliant the kids/adults are). This package includes a memory stick containing all the images or again, it can simply be emailed straight to you

Please get in touch if these don't quite fit what you are looking for or if you want to .

"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

Its Vital that you and your family are comfortable in the cloths you wear, We might want to show our kids in their Sunday best but if they hate wearing it, then trust me they will show it in the photos.

 

Instead of thinking about the best outfit you all have, just focusing on Co-ordinating outfits as it brings cohesion to the images especially in a family shoot. 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 cloths you are wearing.

 

Try to avoid clothing with patterns, logos, writing, pictures or anything which will be distracting, these things can and will 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.

Location Shoot vs Studio shoots

Family location photo shoots are wonderful, around West Sussex and the surrounding counties of Hampshire, Kent and Surrey, we have a magnificent opportunity to shoot in some truly beautiful natural environment, ranging from the woodlands around Kingly Vale, to beaches or West Witterings, the historic Cities of Chichester Portsmouth and Brighton also offer some amazing locations for photo shoots in a more urban environment, or some of the smaller pretty, villages like Arundel or Bosham, Full of Charm and character to capture some heir loom one of a kind Photos for you and your family to cherish and pass on through the generations.

Studio photography offers an entirely different list of benefits to Family photography.

In the studio environment we can control the light more easily, some people also prefer the very neutral back round in a studio setting. The weather can also play a part in your decision, we will still shoot on location in almost any weather, however studio work can go ahead even in the dark, in fact the less light the better, on very bright days we actually block some of the light out from the studio.

"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!!!"
