Children and Family Photography Lancashire


Your Family is Amazing!

Family photography is a wonderful way to celebrate your family and capture some of the magic you share together. Your children grow so quickly, a professional photography session will immortalise some of your child’s amazing quirks and cheeky smiles so that you can enjoy them forever. At PhotoBaby we create images that cherish these special moments in beautiful timeless images. And when you come for a family photo shoot, no one gets left out because you have us to create the pictures!

Every portrait session is customised at PhotoBaby, you just need to tell us what you want, and we will make it happen.  Feel free to come along with a mood board of ideas, or if you prefer, just go with the flow. The studio is a relaxed and comfortable environment and we strive to make each and every portrait session a wonderful and memorable experience. You will have a lot of fun!

We have won awards for both our photography and our customer service. Have a listen to what our clients say. Our natural approach to posing and image making is perfect for capturing the magic of this very special time. Our creative eye and sensitivity in image making, combined with our expertise in lighting and gentle posing results in portraits that are both beautiful and timeless.

Feeling Nervous?

Most of our grown up clients feel a bit nervous about getting in front of the camera. It’s only natural! But worry not, we have plenty of tips and tricks to put you at ease and make sure your portraits look really natural. And we promise to show off your best bits. That’s the beauty of having an award winning photographer create your portrait!

We hope your family photography session will be the first of many wonderful experiences at PhotoBaby, and that you come and enjoy our services time and again as your family grows. We have a long list of happy customers that keep coming back to us, some have even been with us since we first started sixteen years ago!

When to Book

It is never too soon for you to book! Our diary always fills quickly, especially our weekend slots so think what  you would like to capture and get us to block your appointment in the diary soon. When we talk to you we’ll find out what you think you want from your session and then suggest some different options either in the studio, on location or perhaps even a bit of both. Once we’ve booked you in, we’ll post you out a welcome pack which will give you lots of ideas and help you prepare for your shoot.

What Your Session Entails

A family photo shoot usually lasts about an hour and a half. This allows plenty of time for you to have an outfit change or two, or feeding baby if needs be. We’ll create around five or six creative portrait ideas with you. We will plan the shoot according to the age and ability of your baby, and the images you wish us to create.

As well as individual baby portraits, if siblings have come along, we also have a series of techniques to pose brothers and sisters with your baby in portraits too. And we have lots of toys to keep brothers and sisters occupied when they are not having their photo call.

Choose Studio Or Location?

If you would prefer to have your portrait session out doors we have a range of favourite locations that we can suggest depending on the time of year. Bluebells in the spring, wild flower meadows in the summer or leaf strewn trails in the autumn. Or you may have a special place that you would like to have your photo shoot at such as where you got married. Give us a call and we can talk over a few ideas and make some suggestions.

What to Wear

Your clothing will play a key element in your timeless, natural portraits. Our goal is always to create images that are simple, natural and understated so your clothing should match this theme. To keep things simple pick a colour and coordinate everyone’s clothing around this colour. Lights and neutrals work beautifully, as do jeans and white shirts. Skin always looks wonderful on our dark background in the studio. You can get some good ideas of colour combinations that work well if you have a look on Pintrest.

Rome wasn’t built in a day and editing the perfect portrait also needs time. For every moment spent pressing the shutter on the camera, hundreds more are spent behind the scenes painstakingly editing your imagery to natural perfection. Each image that you choose will be lovingly worked on to bring out the best of the image and hide the elements that distract from your wonderful story of the beginnings of your family. Snot, dribble, dry skin and rashes all disappear so you can enjoy the simple beauty of your portraits. And for tired parents, sometimes a little airbrush is all that is needed to bring you back to life.

Viewing and Displaying your Portraits

After your family photography session you will be invited back about a week later for your cinematic portrait viewing. This is a wonderful experience that will have you cooing and giggling and may even bring on a few tears – we always have the tissues to hand just incase!

You have come for a professional service so we want you to have a professionally printed product to show off your work to it’s full potential. We’ve designed a range of packages that combine tangible products with digital files to suit most budgets (find out more about prices here) Our user friendly viewing software will help you tailor your favourite images to suit your chosen packages. Our signature prints are on luxurious metallic, which is really special – we’ll show you examples when you come in.

Good luck with the arrival of your little one and I do hope we meet you soon. To book now, click the link, or to find out more please fill in the form or call us on 01524 555789. x
