I had fun on this shoot out in a park in Orpington, Kent. This was an extended family shoot – Mum and Dad – 2 girls, Sister and her daughter and Grandparents. Unlike some of my competitors I don’t charge for additional people – BUT because I have only a limited time with you – the dynamics of a group is different from just a family of 3 or 4. This might not always be a bad thing – but sometimes it does mean that we don’t get all of the shots you want and the focus is decided on who the children want to be with.
If you are planning on having grandparents involved, let’s talk beforehand to decide whether it might make sense for them to there for part of the shoot – do we want to get some shots with them with each child – all the children and some natural ones and a group one – as you can see, the list grows quickly. I find it better if we’re not rushed. For older children this might mean that it makes sense for me to spend longer with you – but again – give me a ring and we’ll work out what would work for you and your family.
