“The memories we make with our family are everything”

Hi – I’m Annabel, a Berkshire Family Photographer who offers relaxed informal photoshoots to capture timeless images of you and your loved ones.

Your family mean to world to you, let me create beautiful keepsake portraits to cherish forever.

My family shoots are all about spending time as a family in a relaxed setting. I work with natural light in the great outdoors. This environment makes everyone feel comfortable. The vibrant colours of nature, bluebells in Spring and stunning Autumn help to create captivating photography. Unlike studio sessions, outdoor photoshoots encourage spontaneity and authenticity.

How it works

Before your family shoot

Once we have confirmed the date and location of your family shoot we can discuss clothing choices and what colours will work well within your home. 

On the day

Our focus on the day of your family shoot is to have fun whilst capturing beautiful portraits. We will explore the local area using the amazing natural backgrounds of Berkshire. 

After the shoot

You will recieve your images to choose from 10 working days after your shoot. I can also help with designing frame collections and gifts if this is something you would like. 

Get in touch

I recently hired Annabel to take some photos of my Grandma's 90th birthday party and I am thrilled with how these turned out. In particular, my Grandma and my family love seeing all the photos and having a proper memento of the occasion. Annabel is friendly yet professional. She instilled me with a high level of confidence before the event with regular and timely communication. The photos are of very high quality and were shared with us very promptly after the event. I'm so glad Annabel helped to make this occasion special and gave us something to treasure forever. Thank you!

We are blown away by the photos from our recent family photoshoot with with Berkshire family photographer, Annabel! They are wonderful, and I especially love how she captured our son's personality. It is special to have these pictures. The colours are beautiful, and I really like how she enhanced them. Thanks again, Annabel!

I literally can’t stop crying Annabel, it’s the most amazing photo I have ever seen! A million thank you’s

– Moneith Family

I recently hired Annabel to do a family shoot to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary. This is not something my family has done before and Annabel was very helpful in ensuring that everybody felt comfortable with the photos being taken and how to position themselves. Annabel went above and beyond by taking the time to talk to my parents and find out about them and their wedding. On receiving the photos I was extremely impressed with the end result as were my parents, and some of the photos now have pride of place on my parents living room wall. I would have no hesitation in recommending Annabel to anyone looking for a family photo shoot. Highly recommend.

Can I request specific locations or themes?

Yes, you can absolutely request specific locations or themes for your family photoshoot when booking a full family shoot. Whether it’s a favorite park, woodland or even the comfort of your own home, we are flexible and willing to accommodate your preferences. Additionally, you are welcome to request any particular themes they have in mind, such as a casual outdoor picnic, a formal indoor setting, or a themed shoot based on hobbies or interests.

What is the turnaround time for edited photos?

The typical turnaround time for receiving edited photos after a family photoshoot is approximately 2-3 weeks. This duration allows the photographer to carefully select and edit the best images from the session to ensure high quality and satisfaction.

Are there additional Fees for large groups or extended Sessions?

My full family shoot prices means there are no additional fees for large groups or extended sessions. You are welcome to divide the cost of the shoot across and families that attend making it great value for everyone! As a Berkshire family photographer my collections are designed to work for families of all sizes. 

Where do Family Shoots take place?

I work in the great outdoors using natural light, nature provides the perfect backdrop.

What should we wear?

-Most importantly be comfortable. Clothing without patterns/logos works best, as they can take the eye away from the subject. If you would like to co-ordinate colours, I have some Pinterest boards I can share with you.

What happens if it rains, or someone is ill on the day?

As an experienced Berkshire family photographer, I do work in light rain as it disappears on camera! If it’s raining heavily, or one of your children are ill the shoot can be rescheduled at no extra charge.

Can we bring the dog/s?
Absolutely! I recommend bringing long lead and treats too.
What is the Booking Fee?

£99 will secure the date and time in my diary. This is then deducted from the overall shoot fee.

How do we book?

Please contact me via my enquiry page with any details and an ideal date for the shoot.
