What is a location photo shoot and why should I book one?

Come for a walk with us…

What is a location photo shoot?

A location photo shoot is an outdoor photo session. With an abundance of gorgeous locations in South Wales we’re really spoilt for choice. Locations are chosen for lots of reasons – it could be somewhere that’s really personal to you and your family, or it could be somewhere that looks great at the time – bluebells in the Spring or stunning colours in the woods in the Autumn.

Once a location is chosen we simply go for a walk, have a chat, take some photos and walk some more. I love shooting this way because it’s informal and it allows clients to relax and enjoy the session. Plus, it means we get loads of different backdrops, providing a greater variety of images.

Why should I book a location photo shoot?

I started my business when my daughter was 5 months old. She’s just turned 13. There’s so much that I love remembering about her through each different stage. Her curls, the way she walked with such purpose – shoulders hunched, fists clenched, her infectious grin and when she actually let me choose her clothes. Looking at photos of her reminds me of those times – how it felt to hold her in my arms and snuggle into her warm baby skin.

Each time I go out on a shoot with a family, I’m mindful of all the memories I’m capturing for them. Sometimes, it might seem like chaos – with kids running all over the place, hair flying in the air and the inevitable time that someone falls over in a puddle – but I know that when they look back on the pictures, they will see their love shining out of them.

Get in the photo!

After my cancer diagnosis a few years ago, one of the first things I did was book a family photo shoot. I knew there were loads of images of my kids but hardly any of me. Of course, I wanted to lose weight and have nice hair but I also didn’t want to waste another minute of trying to achieve perfection when all I wanted to do was to show my kids how much I loved them – and for it to be captured.

Those images mean SO MUCH to me and I treasure them. It’s so important for parents to feature in family photos! Yes, we like looking at images of our kids, but in time, they will also enjoy looking at photos of us too.

I took a walk with this family in the most incredible Autumnal setting. Their little one moved so quick, she was like a rocket! This set of images is bursting with love and I hope her parents will look back on them in years to come and remember the day we spent together capturing a little of their family magic.

If you want your own family shoot – stop waiting for the perfect time and get booking. Gift vouchers are now available for Christmas.
