Emily Black Photography, Stourhead National Trust, Family photoshoot


Hello and thank you for checking out my family portrait page! I aim to create an informal and relaxed style for my family sessions.

I believe it's important to capture the REAL moments of children and families and this can be done through play, lots of tickling, exploring, running, jumping, oh and most importantly-having fun!

What to expect during the session?
I usually start the session with letting you all have fun, and explore your surroundings. This usually involves just letting the kids run, jump- basically free range, while I get some natural shots. Mid session, is usually a good time for a quick group shot and a ‘look at me and smile!’. I’m super easy going & having three young children myself, I know how hard it is to get them to stay still for long!

What shall we wear?
Anything you feel comfortable in. The brighter the better!

How will my images be delivered?
You will receive a link to a private viewing gallery, where you are able to upload your images.

When will my images be ready?
I typically give a 3 week turnaround, although this may vary depending on busy summer seasons.

Can we upload the images to social media?
Yes, of course! If you don’t mind crediting me then that’ll be great- it’s not expected though. All I ask, is if you kindly don’t filter the images on Instagram!

What happens if it rains?
I want you and your family to enjoy the session, and if it’s pouring with rain, it won’t be much fun! I normally check out what the weather’s doing closer to the session, and will suggest we reschedule if it looks really grim.

What if my child’s ill?
As a mum of 3, I understand that this may happen. I’m happy to rebook, but would kindly request as much notice as possible.

How about the location?
If you have a particular location in mind, then I’m happy to go with that. I want the photo shoot to be meaningful to you. However, If you’re stuck for ideas, then I have a few great suggestions!

What if I have a camera shy child?
I try to aim for your child/children not to realise they are being photographed, and the best way to achieve this, is to let your children play, run and have fun! Towards the end of the session, they might feel more comfortable with the camera, if you would like some formal family style shots.

Are you Insured?
Yes, yes and yes!

How do we book and make payment?
Please contact me to arrange a location and date. Payment for the session must be paid in full to guarantee your session is booked. Payment must be made at least two weeks before the photo shoot, otherwise I will have to give away the slot.
