Children & Family

Children’s Photography (4 weeks upwards)

Photographs of your children can be captured at any age. Your photography session is always relaxed and centred around movement and play rather than posing.

Family groups are welcome, including your pets, and photographic sessions can be arranged either in the Studio or on location.

Studio Photography Session: £30

Your Session includes:

Your session normally lasts approximately one hour though I allow plenty of time to ensure we will not be rushed!

The Studio is generally open Tuesday to Friday with some Saturday appointments available.

At the end of your photography session we will take some time to discuss the presentation options for your finished photographs and you will have the opportunity to view the samples in the Studio gallery.

Your photographs will then be revealed at a separate viewing appointment, usually one week after your session.

As a guide to pricing, my clients generally choose to spend anywhere from £160 up to about £600.

An option to purchase your complete collection of photographs on USB is available for £335.

A full Pricing and Product Guide is available by request. Please get in touch via the ‘Contact‘ page or by calling the Studio on 01642 211839 and I will send a PDF version to your email address.

 

What to expect from your photography session:

What kind of photographs will you take?

My sessions aim to capture a full range of expressions from your little one to build a picture of their personality at each stage of development. This requires patience, flexibility and interaction so it’s important your session is not rushed! You can expect a relaxed atmosphere and there will be no awkward poses.

I will create a variety of photographs for you with different backgrounds and lighting, feel free to bring a change of clothes and some of your child’s favourite things to make your session more personal.

If you are coming as a family I will work with you to capture your full family group as well as any smaller group combinations such as your children together, separately, with their grandparents etc.

Where would the photographs be taken?

I recommend a Studio shoot for babies under 12 months, other than that the choice is yours. Most of my clients choose to come along to my Studio in Middlesbrough as there is plenty of space, free parking and no need to worry about the weather!

I do work on location all year round and sessions at the beach are very popular. Feel free to get in touch for advice, I’ll be happy to discuss your options and recommend the best type of session to suit you.

How do we view and order our photographs?

The gallery in my studio displays samples of each presentation option allowing you to choose your finished photographs with confidence.

At the end of your photography session we will make a further appointment for you to come back to the Studio, usually the following week, to view your photographs. I do not employ a sales team, so the photographs you order are entirely your choice.

How do we book you?

You can contact me via the ‘Contact’ page here on the website or call me at the Studio on 01642 211839. I’ll be happy to answer any questions and check availability.

In order to secure each booking, payment of your session fee £30 is taken in advance. This payment is non-refundable, though it may be transferable should you need to rearrange. Please note; you must provide at least 48hrs notice.


Testimonials

“We heard about Jen's great reputation for baby portraits and thought it would be a nice idea as a Christmas gift for my parents, we got a voucher for a photo shoot and two photos for a very good price. The shoot started with Jen really putting us at ease and letting us know what was going to happen through the shoot, it was fun, friendly, relaxed and you couldn't ask for any more. The shots where thought out well, creative and when we saw the results we absolutely over the moon with them. Beautifully presented back to us we all nearly had a tear in our eye and she guided us through the different options with no heavy sales pitch, the pictures just speaks for themselves. The whole experience was very professional but personal. We would all like to thank Jen very much for a great day! x”

“I would whole heartily recommend Jen Hart, as she took the most amazing photographs of my daughter and our family. Spending an hour in the studio flies by and the end result is well worth it! In an hour or so, Jen was able to capture the moment, development and character of my daughter. When reviewing the photographs a week later both my mum and I; oh, ah, laughed and cried, the hardest part was choosing the photographs to take home as you will end up wanting them all! Thank you, Jen for the wonderful photographs which make me smile every morning.”
