Spring Mini Family Photoshoots on the farm in Suffolk

Feb 14, 2022 | Family photography, Family shoot, springtime images

 Now that another long winter is over, I’m very excited to be able to offer my clients Spring Mini Family Photoshoots on my family farm, in Stoke By Clare, Suffolk.   As we are only a 30-minute drive from Bury St Edmunds, Newmarket, and Sudbury, and 45 minutes from Cambridge, Colchester and Braintree, we are very accessible for clients in the surrounding areas! These 30 minute Mini Photoshoots are perfect for families who would like to update their family photos without having to invest in a full family shoot.

This mini session is suitable for individuals, couples, small and large families with children of all ages, and you are welcome to bring your family pets too if you like. The photos will look wonderful displayed around your home all year round, but they also make great Mothers Day Gifts as well and I can provide you with a gift voucher to present to your Mum / Wife or Partner on the day.   What Mother or Grandparents doesn’t want gorgeous photos of their kids and Grandkids as a gift?

These shoots are for immediate family only so not suited to extended families but if you would like a photo of an extended family group. I suggest you book 2 sessions back to back and we can take a few group shots of all of you or all of the kids together in the 5 mins the sessions cross over.

Pets are very welcome and we can get some photos of you all together and also some of them with the kids or by themselves.

As I mentioned the shoots are 30 minutes long and are only available on set dates and times which you can see below. Once the dates are booked up, this special offer price will not be made available again until next Spring so don’t miss out and book your shoot now!

When are they happening?

Fri 29th April –  SOLD OUT!

Sun 1st May –9.15am (BOOKED), 11am (BOOKED), 3pm (BOOKED), 4.15pm (Available) and 5.30pm (Available)

I can cater for Babies and Children of all ages including teens and toddlers, although it’s not ideal for Newborns as it can take a while to settle newborns and if the weather is cold (as you can never tell in spring what the weather will be doing) then they will need to be well wrapped up and then you can easily lose them in blankets and coats.   So it’s better suited to older babies that are able to hold their heads up independently.


What do you need to wear and bring with you?

I would wear something slightly summery looking but with lots of thin layers if the weather is a touch cooler.    I’d avoid black as it sucks the colour out of outdoor photos.   Even dark grey or navy is better than black as it has a bit of warmth to it. Bring hats, scarves, gloves if you have them, gilets, jackets or light coats but try not to bring anything too bulky as it will just make you look bigger in the photos and it’s not as flattering as formfitting outfits.

If you are unsure of what to wear, layout your outfits on the floor or bed and send me a photo so I can see how all the colours work together.  I might have the odd item that will work well with your choices, or I could suggest something else if it’s not quite working.   I’m always happy to help to ensure we get the best look for the shoot.


The price for the sessions are as follows:⁠ ⁠

£200 for a 30 min shoot plus x5 Digital images

Payment is taken in full on booking and unfortunately, I can’t hold dates or times for anyone to keep it fair to all my clients.

After your session, you will be sent a link to your gallery of the best 10 to 15 images from your shoot for you to choose your favourites from.  The gallery will be open for 48 hours, unedited and watermarked but all the images you include in your package will be fully edited before they are sent back to you and I aim to get your photos back to you within 2 weeks. ⁠ Additional Digitals can be bought once you’ve seen your gallery of images for £50 each.⁠ Frames, Canvases, Mounted Prints, Folio Boxes, and Albums are also available for purchase. Please click here to make your booking now!

Looking forward to seeing you then!⁠ Alison xx

I had a fun afternoon with the gorgeous Cook boys George and Harry at their home with their lovely Mum Melanie.   We played some games in the back garden and then went inside for stories with Mum before going up to their room so they could show me their favourite toys...
