Family mini Sessions 2023

October  27 | 28 | 29

November 4 | 5


My annual family mini sessions are the perfect way to update your family photos and also they make perfect Christmas gifts!

You will attend a 30 minute session in the studio, which is usually enough time for at least 2 different backdrops and a mixture of full family, siblings and solo shots of your children.

I don’t offer themes, so please do look at other local photographers if you are hoping for a Christmas themed session. I believe photos are for life, not just for Christmas ;-)!

Sessions cost £150 for the 30 minute session and 5 digital images. You will also be able to purchase additional images and prints if you would like to.

Please note, outfits are not included in the session and if you are late for your session it will come out of the allocated time slot – so if you are terrible at being punctual this might not be the right session for you!

Posing of newborns is not included, ideally babies will be over 3 months old to get the best results.

If you have a big family, or a very young baby, please consider booking 2 sessions back. This will mean you get 10 images and additional time to capture them.

Image selection
Elizabeth May Photography will provide you to a link to a gallery of between 5-10 images for you to choose from. If you are late or your child isn’t in a great mood then we may only achieve 5 images, in which case these will be your final 5 and your gallery will not be larger.

Loss of images
In the highly unlikely event images are lost before being delivered to clients, this could be caused for example by a corrupt memory card or an extreme circumstance like a fire, Elizabeth May Photography will offer a re shoot of the session as soon as possible. EM Photography will ensure they format memory cards, keep virus software up to date and reduce the risk of this happening.
