Family Sessions

A natural, relaxed experience our family location session will leave you with beautiful, everlasting memories.  

Whether we meet on the beach, the park or even in granny’s garden, the time we spend together will be spent producing photographs with artistic and emotional value, providing you with timeless products as unique as you and your family

"By displaying photographs of our children at different stages of their lives, we are making a very public statement that we are proud of them. It's very significant that the two reasons people give for loving a particular photograph is that it reminds them of a happy time taken with family. These things are so important to us." 

Professor Geoff Beattie, Head of School and Dean of Psychological Sciences at the University of Manchester

In order to give you our very best, we limit the number of portrait sessions to four per week, which means that at some times of the year your appointment will need to be made around five to eight weeks in advance. As you can imagine, Saturday afternoons and school holidays are extremely popular for family location sessions. 

£75* session fee for your photographic session.  *Within 35 miles of Berwick-upon-Tweed


CLOTHING AND SETTING CONSULTATION

A natural, relaxed portrait experience is achieved by starting with our clothing and setting consultation, either over the phone or in the studio. At this informal meeting we discuss any ideas you have for the session, wardrobe choices and the personalities of your family.  This will help us learn a little more about your expectations of the session, your family dynamics and emotional connections.  Here we'll also firm up the time, date and location of your appointment.

Hair and make-up can be arranged on request - we're happy to organise great stylists to make sure you look fabulous in your portrait. We can even advise you on how to pose for the most flattering image.

We have lots of 'go to' locations which we can chat to you about at the consultation, you may however have your own ideas for location which is welcomed.  These sessions are usually carried out on Northumberland's breathtaking coastline or within the rolling countryside of the Scottish Borders; wherever we go, the experience will leave the whole family with beautiful lasting memories.

Your Photography Session

We will meet for the appointment at your location of choice. Your session will normally take between 1-2 hours, keeping things fun and relaxed with no pressure for the best photographic outcome, especially if young children are involved.  

Sarah will give you gentle prompts and direction to elicit genuine interaction and emotional connection.

Extended family are welcome if you would like to share the experience.

Sarah gains a really good understanding of what you like and don’t like and therefore produces amazing photos that you will love. Her ability to put both adults and children at ease made our shoot a very enjoyable experience.”
— Jo Anderson, Duns

ORDERING APPOINTMENT / DESIGN CONSULTATION

Approximately one week after your photography, you will be invited to our beautiful quayside studio to look through your photographs and make a selection. You'll be able to see everything on a big screen for an easier viewing experience.

Framing and wall display examples can be viewed during the ordering session enabling you to see exactly how your photographs could look. We assist you step-by-step in the selection process, ensuring that you have the right pictures, frames and mounts for your home and decor.

Please Note: Ordering appointments usually last around an hour and are not much fun for small children. We recommend that you set aside your viewing as some quality 'me' time, either with or without your partner but preferably without the children. Trust us, they will thank you for it!

It was a lovely experience and I felt Sarah took great care and imagination with her photography and that comes from her obvious passion for all she does in her work.. It shines through!
— Mary Melvin, Berwick

— Ruth Mather, Alnwick
