Children and family photographer Truro

Outdoor Portrait Photography Sessions

These sessions are fantastic for families of all ages.

If you love walks in the woods, grassy fields or sandy toes on the beach then lets make some magic!

Children especially love these sessions because they are outside. It allows children the freedom to explore and keep their interest for longer.

I love my studio and it’s great in all weathers, but we don’t want to forget to take the opportunity to soak up some of what Cornwall has to offer!

How much is this going to cost?

Only pay £20 for the session and together we'll have fun! In a couple of weeks you will be invited to see your images in your gallery and you can decide what to do. All images in your gallery will be priced at £40. Each family session will get at least 30 images which are professionally edited in both colour and black and white. I am confident in the quality of my service that I don't charge until you have seen your images giving you reassurance.

All about the outdoor sessions

What is a an outdoor portrait session?

Outdoor portrait sessions take place outside at a location of your choice. Together we’ll pick a location local in Cornwall such as a park, wood or beach.  I am always open to suggestions so if there is somewhere special to your family let me know. Within a 15 mile radius of Truro is included in the price, with a little discretion further locations can be arranged for a small fee.

What’s the difference between an outdoor and studio session?

Outdoor portrait sessions are potentially more informal. They give more room to move about and instead of using props and clean backdrops we use the location to it’s maximum as your canvas. For younger children around toddler age these sessions enable them to run around possibly longer than they may sit or play in the studio.

How long does an outdoor portrait session last?

Sessions as standard are 60 minutes but I don’t like to rush my sessions. It all depends on how many people are involved, extra time can be tagged on if I have space and you want to continue.

How many people can be included in the photo session?

If it's over 4 people including parents and children then please speak to me first. Sometimes I may recommend an extra 30 minutes to ensure that we have enough time to get everything but it all depends on ages, willingness and where we choose to go. 

What happens if it rains on the day of the session?

We have a couple of options as after all this is Cornwall.  If it’s light rain and your child is happy playing in puddles or it’s a family photo session and you don’t mind a little rain, your session can still go ahead if you wish.

If that doesn’t appeal or it’s heavy rain, we can re-schedule for another date at no extra charge.

What happens if my child isn’t having one of his/her betters days or he/she is shy with you?

I am patient and generally click with most children after a few minutes. I’m not pushy and work with children enough to understand how to make them feel relaxed. As a dad I’ll understand if your child needs a little more time to warm up to the idea of having photos.  I specialise as a family and children’s photographer which certainly helps but as all children are different if they are really unwell or something is not right we can always re-schedule the session.
