Have you ever tried to get kids to pose for a photo? It’s tough at the best of times, not least in the unnatural environment of a studio with lots of wires, reflectors and tripods to grab hold of and knock over?
Yes, I’m shuddering at the thought too.
I offer you an alternative. I offer you the excuse to relax and have fun with your family.
You can choose whether to head to a park, a field, a playground, or even stay at home for some messy play in the garden or cooking up a storm in the kitchen. Maybe you’re teaching your child how to play a musical instrument, or just enjoy dancing round the living room together.
I come to you, in the comfort of a familiar environment of your choosing. There’s no large, unwieldy equipment. It’s just me, a couple of cameras and a big smile. The focus is on fun – you and your family playing and interacting.
No posed shots, no artistic direction, just natural.
The not-so-small print:
- Milage may be chargeable if the location is over 15 miles from my base in Wrington, North Somerset.
- Images will be high resolution, and a mixture of colour and black & white
- All photoshoots are ‘on location’ (I travel to you). I do not offer studio based photo shoots.
- With the exception of the Portrait Package, I avoid artistic direction as much as possible. This results in more natural – real – photos.
- Please let me know if you do not wish images to appear online or to be used for promotional purposes.

Sue and Chris’ Family Fun Photoshoot, August 2017

At Home Photoshoot, with Lorna, Paul, their three children, one set of grandparents, and the dog! September 2016
“We didn’t have any [photos] of the five of us as a family…we’re both pretty camera shy and generally look ridiculous or have our eyes shut in the pictures we try to take ourselves. We discussed what we were hoping for and Adele made us feel much more relaxed about the photoshoot. We basically ended up playing in the garden and having fun with the kids, while she ran around snapping pictures of everyone. The result was a beautiful collection of natural family photos that we will treasure.”
Temple Garden and At Home Photoshoot with Chu, Chris and Kobi, May 2016
“Adele has been a wonderful photographer for us. She has produced great shots for our family photo sessions. I really appreciate her style of observing and catching the best natural shots without intrusion. It is easier to relax and actually enjoy the photo session this way, hence more likely to get decent photos. We would highly recommend her service!”
