Our Outdoor and Studio Family Photography packages start from just £295.
Canvas & Peach offer outdoor and studio Family photography sessions!
Outdoor photoshoots can take place anywhere – you may fancy a walk in the park, a stroll along the beach or heading over to a family cottage. Obviously we live in Scotland so sometimes it does rain, however if this is the case on the day we book your shoot we can either reschedule or you can come into our cosy studio. These photoshoots can last up to 2 hours.
Come into our studio and we can create classic portraits to last a lifetime! We can photograph groups, different combinations, generations, fine art portraits and children photography. For this shoot we book out 3 hours and we focus on going through different posing making you feel beautiful and encouraging big smiles for the little ones!
We have a various of different backdrops and different props. We encourage different outfits and to bring any props that you see fit to showcase your family off (for example toys for your little one).
For the lovely ladies of this photoshoot we can add in an extra special touch and take away the stress of getting ready: our family photoshoots come with the option of a complimentary makeup done by an amazing makeup artist!
A family photoshoot is a wonderful, long-lasting keepsake for all generations and we love to capture this moment in time! Take a look at our family photography portfolio for some inspiration!
Frequently asked questions
Is there a deposit?
If you’d like to book, please get in touch to enquire about our availability. Once we’ve selected a day that suits, to secure your booking we will require a non refundable £50 deposit paid via bank transfer.
Who can attend the session?
We’re pretty flexible about this, it’s a great idea for both parents/siblings/furbabies/extended family to come along. Family shoots can be stressful working everyone’s schedules together but it’s totally worth it when you have photos of the gang to last a lifetime.
If you do decide that you would like to do a big family shoot, please let us know this is advance and we’ll find out everyones names,the kids ages and your group shot list to ensure we are prepared for your shoot.
How long does our session last?
Your session will last up to two hours, this gives us plenty of time to really enjoy the day, work through all your desired combos and ensure we capture the best photos. For us we really want you to enjoy the full experience and not be stressed, so having all this time take the pressure off and makes sure the kids have time to warm up and come out their shell if they are a little overwhelmed.
What should I wear?
We know it can be a worry/stress on what to wear to a photoshoot. We’ve made a helpful guide that can be found on our Instagram highlights called ‘’Style Guide’’.
Alternatively if you don’t use instagram you can search the terms ‘’What to wear to a family photoshoot’’ on Pinterest to get some inspiration.
Another idea is that you can have a look through our Family portfolio page to see examples of what other clients have chosen to wear in the past.
How to style colours/paterns/textures for outfits together?
This one is very important for family photos are you want to ensure all the outfits compliment each other. The best tip we can give you for this is to explain to everyone a colour scheme like you would get from B&Q. If you check out our highlights on Instagram you’ll see in the ‘’Style Guide’’ we talk through this and show examples.
Alternatively if you don’t use instagram you can search the terms ‘’Colour Palette Inspiration’’ on Pinterest and you’ll find loads of examples and you just need to pick one that you like. These are normally used for decorating/interiors but we find this is the best way to allow everyone to keep to their own style and be comfortable but follow the same colour palette but at the same time not being all matchy matchy.
How would I change outfits if our shoot is outside?
We have a changing tent we bring along to the photoshoot so don’t worry you are welcome to use that to do your outfit changes.
Do you provide make-up for family shoots?
Yes, we can do, please do let us know well in advance and we can find our all our Make-up Artist availability and hopefully link in with one of them. All the Make-up Artist we work with are highly skilled and can do natural and glam looks. We normally recommend sticking with a more natural look though.
Can we request specific shots?
Yes, you can, if it’s a big family photoshoot and there is younger kids involved we normally get you to send us a group shot list in priority of most important shots down to bonus shots. Sometimes the younger kids get fed up so we want to make sure we know what shots are the most important just in case we do have an emgergency nap required.
If there is a certain style/photo you’ve seen and it’s something you’ve not seen us do before then please do show us before the shoot day. We love trying new poses, styles and enjoying being creative so we’d be more than happy to do this. We always know we’re capturing your photos so we want you to love them as much as possible.
Where do the outdoors shoots take place?
This is something we can discuss at booking, we’ve got loads of places we enjoy shooting that have lovely scenery. To name a few favourites are a wedding venue called Eden Leisure village in Cumbernauld and Irvine Beach (we also love popping into Gro Coffee after the shoot and treat ourself to cake and coffee, if you haven’t been we highly recommend) We also been known to use the backroad fields and local country parks. We’ll always find some good spots.
However we don’t need to choose your location, we’re more than happy to discuss this with you and If you do have somewhere in mind that you love or is special to you just let us know and we can do the shoot at that location.
What if it rains on our outdoors shoot day?
We always try keep our positive pants on and pray to the weather gods but if the worst does happen we can either change your shoot to a studio shoot or reschedule. Sadly, when rescheduling it can be difficult if you need a Saturday as we are normally fully booked in advance but this is something we can discuss at the time.
