Family Photography Information

What better way to mark a family event or simply to capture your family growing up than to have a family portrait session with Chrysalis Photography?

Our family photography sessions can either be in the studio or in the stunning grounds of Renishaw Hall near Sheffield. You shouldn’t need an excuse to get the extended family together – but this is a great one if you need it!  It will also provide a precious family heirloom to pass down through the generations.

WHAT IS THE BEST AGE FOR A FAMILY PHOTOSHOOT?

The great thing about a family shoot is that there is no age limit! Newborn to baby, toddler to teenager, adult to octogenarian – you are all welcome.

We do advise that for large family sessions, any babies are at least four to six months onwards. This makes it a little easier to pass them around if mum is in front of the camera.

WHAT CLOTHES ARE MOST SUITABLE FOR A FAMILY PHOTOSHOOT?

A family should ideally wear co-ordinating colours. We recommend that you pick a colour and then have different combinations of that colour. Layers are great for toddlers and children. Try vests, jackets, blazers, skirts or leggings.  A simple white shirt or t-shirt in varying styles with denim works really well. We have a selection of shirts on hand if someone forgets and some lovely tutus and outfits for smaller children in various sizes.  Any outfit can be accessorised with a colour co-ordinating hat, funky glasses, leg warmers, scarves and headbands. Try to avoid bold prints, logos and cartoon characters as these are distracting and will tend to date photographs.

Props: If your child has a favourite book, toy, teddy bear, scooter or pet, feel free to bring it along.  And if they have hobbies that they are into, then uniforms or related props are great fun for them to bring too.

WHHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE PHOTOSHOOT?

Chris will take a few moments at the end of the session to explain what comes next.  He will go through the options of what you are able to order from your session and what is included. He may also go through our pricing structure, giving you a price list to browse at your leisure once you have left.  Before you leave the studio, we will make an appointment for you to return to Renishaw Hall to view your images.

IS THERE A MINIMUM SPEND FOR A FAMILY PHOTOSHOOT?

No.  Our product range is bespoke so you may choose anything you wish.  We can make a tailormade package just for you or you can choose one of our pre-built packages from the product guide given to you before you leave the shoot.
