CHILDREN’S PHOTO SHOOTS

The utterly timeless fine art Children’s photo shoots I do in the studio are quite different to the outdoor family photo shoot.  Here we concentrate on more serious images,  we want to see the sensitive and thoughtful side to your child, so they are quieter and more introspective.  Consequently children need to be at least 5 years old in order to be able to keep still and calm for short periods at least.

Wow! I am truly blown away by the photographs that Susan shot of my children. I can’t stop looking at them. She has managed to capture such beautiful, gentle, elegant yet powerful images. I will treasure them forever. Susan made the children feel totally relaxed and at ease, they loved every minute of the shoot and had lots of fun. We have had professional shoots before but they have been nothing like this and it shows in what she has produced. Thank you Susan Marion

Children Fine Art Studio shoot, 2017

Where is your studio?
Fine Art Children's Photography

The studio is a lovely big modern space in my home in Ealing, West London and as such is a very relaxed setting for children who settle in very quickly.  You can park on the road outside without a permit or the tube station is only 2 mins walk away.  There is a studio cat which is a great ice breaker for shy kids – obviously let me know if there are any allergies and I can put her away.

How old do the children need to be?
Children need to be old enough to take direction, at least 4 yrs old I would say, though it is possible to do children younger if they have a calm temperament.
What do I need to bring?
I will give you a call to discuss clothing and props before the day, taking into account the children’s characters and colouring to choose clothes and props that will compliment them and make the most of their session.  As we’re aiming for simple and elegant we will try to clothe the children accordingly, however it’s fun to bring props such as hats or scarves or toys to change it up and get a different look.
How long will the session be?
The studio shoot would take around an hour and the edited images will be ready to view from your home computer within a few days.  I will take both black and white and colour images, I think they work equally well and are both going to stand the test of time.

I am happy to photograph siblings together and separately, it may take slightly longer to do 3 kids but I work quickly so as not to have them run out of steam and I find that the kids truly love the sessions and feel very special having their portrait taken.

Do I need to come back for a viewing?
No, I know how busy my clients all are and so I make life easier by giving you an online viewing gallery of your images within a few days of the shoot.  You can then order your images from the comfort of your own home, however I will always be on hand to guide you if you need a hand in choosing either images or products.
How far ahead should I book?
My weekend sessions book up to 2 month ahead of time, though weekdays can be booked up to 2 weeks ahead so it’s worth thinking ahead about when you want to do your shoot.

It’s a great experience for both proud parents and beautiful children.  Do give me a call to discuss your options- 07815 864884 or schedule an appointment here.

RECENT REVIEWS

I booked a family shoot with Susan because I wanted to capture a special moment in time with my family. We had never had a professional shoot before and were a little sceptical about how Susan would get us into a frame looking like we wanted to be there! We visited Susan's studio and she managed the task with humour. The shoot was fun, and the photos prove that. We are getting some classic close up prints which I will treasure.

Susan did an excellent job photographing our newborn. She has a lovely down to earth demeanor, and conducted the shoot from our flat - all of which kept my husband, our new baby, and me at ease. The photographs turned out beautifully. We're very happy with the whole experience.

We got images taken on Hampstead Heath as we enjoy walking there as a family. Susan is really friendly and engaging and was absolutely wonderful at getting my two boys to be enthusiastic about the shoot - which is no small feat especially since the youngest is only two years old. The resulting images were beautiful, the only problem we had was deciding which ones to frame!

We recently had our two children photographed at Susan's studio, and the photos really capture their personalities. Our 4 year old daughter especially loved posing in front of the wind machine and Susan managed to capture our cheeky one year old son with his big sister after many creative attempts at trying to get them to stay still together! The images are superb and I would recommend Susan for her skill and artistry.

We are delighted with the photos Susan took of our family at home! She used some of our personal belongings and was very engaging with our 3 year old boy. I would definitely recommend her work!

We had great experience with Susan. The shoot place were primrose hill. Her arrangements were perfect. Especially, she instructed us just right position and took us with sunlight filtering through the trees ingeniously. Our sons really enjoyed the photo shooting. The photos are so good and much exceeded our expectations. The photos and the experience are our precious memories in London !

Its a pleasure working with Susan. Our exchanges before the shoot were great - I knew exactly what to expect and we got good advice on location and what to wear. The shoot went very smoothly, and Susan was able to capture fabulous shots, ticking off everything on my wish list. She was flexible and worked well with my two-year old daughter, dog, and husband - who does not like posing for the camera! I cant wait to work with her again.

Once again, we had such an amazing experience. Susan has a great personality and a spot on eye, able to improvise at any minute while we were outdoors. My daughter felt relaxed and happy and so did we. The pictures were fabulous and that is why I keep coming back to Susan for more and more photo sessions. I would recommend Susan to anyone who would want long lasting, quality memories.Thank you Susan, you've been brilliant again! xx

I really enjoyed my maternity photo session with Susan last weekend. She is warm, friendly and immediately made us feel comfortable. I wasn't really sure what I wanted, other than for us to capture 'the bump', but I love the varied, beautifully lit images she has produced. I'm happy we'll have these to look back on and remember this time. Definitely recommended!
