Family photography Services

Family photos can be done as a lifestyle shoot at a location we decide together based on your family’s style.
We can do a little picnic setup with a blanket and some cushions or we can do a graffiti shoot in town – whatever works for you.
Discuss your needs with me and we can find the perfect spot for you.

The other option for family photographs is to go with a studio shoot – everyone in jeans and white t-shirts against a white backdrop. Lots and lots of excitement and fun, as long as everyone plays the game of course :-)

The Lifestyle family shoot

Is it a walk through the park with the dogs, graffiti art in the downtown CBD, maybe it’s an organic craft pizza at the neighbourgoods market or Arts on Main – whatever your family style is, we can build a lifestyle shoot around you.
Whatever you decide to do, you will have some great pictures of you at this amazing stage of your lives.

The studio family shoot

The best option for a family studio shoot is the relaxed jeans and t-shirt shoot against a white backdrop shoot. No shoes, pulling faces (sometimes hair) and just doing silly things. It’s just a fun shoot.

Family photography FAQ

What is a lifestyle shoot?
A lifestyle shoot is a relaxed shoot anywhere but the studio. They can be out in nature, the city CBD, anywhere that personifies you and your loved ones.

Do you offer studio shoots?
If you would like a studio shoot instead of a location shoot I offer a white backdrop studio shoot.
I love the relaxed feel of jeans, t-shirts and bare feet :-)

How long will the shoot last?
Depending on the package you choose, the shoot will be a 30min, 1hr or 2hr shoot at a location we decide on together. Longer sessions will enable you to have multiple wardrobe changes as well as multiple locations.
The duration of the studio shoot is 1hr.

What should i wear?
The most important thing is that you’re comfortable. Wear what you feel good in as that confidence will come across in the pictures.
I would suggest coordinating styles if you’re doing a couple or family shoot. Avoid patterns, dots, zigzags and logos which can all draw the focus away from you.

When and where will the shoot take place?
Although I have a studio, lifestyle shoots are best done on location. A forest, open veld, the Johannesburg CBD – we can shoot your session anywhere you like.
I recommend scheduling your portrait shoot around 1.5 hrs before sunset as this time of day has the best light.

Are there additional fees?
Nobody likes hidden costs so your shoot and the images outlined in the package you choose are included in the price.
Some locations / venues do charge a fee for their use, but that will be discussed before we decide on a location for your shoot.
If you decide to order additional items, those costs will be added to your order and itemised accordingly.

What are the terms of payment?
50% Deposit upfront to secure your booking date – the balance is due 7 days before the date of your session.
