WE ARE FAMILY
Family sessions usually last between 1 and 2 hours. 2 hours is recommended for babies and very young children where it is necessary to stop for a break and have a snack etc . I'm very much led by how they are feeling and how they react to the camera.
I'd thoroughly recommend considering an outdoor location for your photoshoot. Edinburgh is such a beautiful city with lots of opportunities for photography from it's parks and green spaces to the more character building backdrops of the old town. Surrounded by the picturesque countryside of the Lothians and the beaches of East Lothian, there is no shortage of possibilities.This is all about you and your family so you can choose somewhere with sentimental meaning or a favourite weekend hideaway, for example. Children find outdoor locations more engaging and it's those reactive expressions and excitement that I like to capture. Most importantly you need to feel relaxed and be yourself.
I bring along some bubbles if there are some younger ones which usually turns a frown into a smile..
