Outdoor Family Photography Bristol

An outdoor family photography session is the ideal way to capture fun and relaxed photos of your favourite little people. 

Kids love to be outdoors and so do I! It would be an honour to be your family photographer.

These sessions are perfect for families with young children and particularly great for older children who are full of energy or who may be a little shy in front of the camera.

Most of my favourite locations are woodlands, of which there are many in Bristol, and nearby Somerset and Gloucestershire.

Every season in the woods has its own special beauty…

The stunning carpet of bluebells in Spring, deep luscious greens in Summer and the rich and varied colours of fallen leaves in Autumn.

Just be prepared to fall in love with every photo.

Absolutely money well spent and we will definitely be booking again as our family photographer!


I can suggest many great locations around Bristol but if your family have a favourite place to go then just let me know.

With up to two hours we have plenty of time to get to know each other, have a good run about and maybe even stop for a snack or two!

I will photograph each child individually as well as all combinations that you want with parents, grandparents, dogs, teddies…

Not sure what to wear? Please visit my Spring & Autumn Pinterest boards for ideas.

Family Photography FAQs

When is the best time of year for outdoor photoshoot?

Outdoor photoshoots can be any time of year but the most popular seasons are Spring and Autumn. The nicest light (golden hour) is a few hours before sunset which is often too late for young children during the summer months. During Spring and Autumn the sun sets earlier and is lower in the sky throughout the day. Winter is beautiful but it can also be very cold. 

Can I Bring Grandparents/Aunties/Uncles/My Dogs...?

Outdoor photoshoots are a great opportunity to get your extended family together. The sessions are up to two hours long so we have plenty of time for a few big group photos, as well as smaller family groups. 

Dogs are also welcome – they are part of the family!

What Happens If My Children Don't Cooperate?

I completely understand that children can be a little shy or may have trouble following directions but the great thing about being outdoors is that we can have loads of fun! 

If they love to run, then they can run. If they like to climb trees or use a stick to dig for bugs then that’s what we will do! Really fun makes the best photos.

If your child or anyone in your group has special needs that it may be useful for me to know about then please let me know in advance so that we can get the most out of your session.

If the session still does not go according to plan and I feel that I have not got enough images to make a full gallery then I may suggest reschduling at no additional cost to you.

What Do We Need To Bring With Us?

All you need to bring are drinks and a snack. We will be walking about quite a bit so the fewer bags you have the better.

There is no need to bring any toys/bubbles/balls. I often find these items cause more issues than fun! 

What Happens If It Is Forecast To Rain?

We all know how unpredictable the Bristish weather can be so I am always fully prepared to reschedule if necessary.

I will check the forecast the day before and  get in touch if I think we need to reschedule.

If It Is Overcast And Grey Will My Photos Be Dull and flat?

No! Believe it or not, clouds are a photographers friend and they make a lovely soft, flattering light. Even if it looks grey, your edited images will look lovely and warm.


All sessions require a £99 non-refundable deposit in order to secure your photoshoot which will be deducted from your final payment. Your viewing session will be arranged for one or two weeks after your photoshoot, at this stage you will choose from one of the packages below.
