Capturing their personalities

I have been working with children for years and understand how much they change as they grow and develop. From the moment they are born, their personalities begin to develop and my fun family photo sessions will capture as much of their character as possible in natural images providing you with a wonderful record of their childhood.

Some people consider working with children to be a challenge; they want to play, explore, climb, run around and generally just have fun.  I see this as a huge opportunity to capture natural images of children being children. You and your children choose a location in which they will be able to show off their own individual personalities – perhaps your home, a park, the local woods or favourite walk. If you get struggle to choose I know the local area well and can suggest some favourite locations. I will take time to get to know your family and will make sure the children are comfortable with me before the camera is introduced. Every child is different and there is no rush.

My aim is to make the family photo session as natural as possible and to have fun with the children making them unaware of the camera capturing their expressions and curiosity as they interact with their surroundings. I direct sessions subtly, allowing the children to lead the way while I capture the smiles. If they want to wander off, I will wander with them, if they want to stop to admire a puddle then they can!

You choose who your family photo session includes!

Of course the session can include whoever you would like it to include, whether that’s just the children, the whole family or the extended family and the 2 dogs!

Feel free to take a step back and relax while I get to work capturing your little ones. Children are more likely to feel at ease when you are at ease in or out of shot. I am able to use my years of experience working with children to capture their smiles. If you are not featuring in the photos feel free to take a comfy seat in the background and watch me capture those precious moments. 


"To say we enjoyed our photo shoot with Amy Pitfield Photography would be the biggest understatement ever.

Every single one of us was beaming from ear to ear by the end of our beautiful, crisp, autumnal walk. The kids

loved Amy and felt at ease with her straight away, something that I think comes across in the photos. I cannot

recommend Amy enough for anyone who is looking to capture a very natural moment in time,

I know we will treasure these photos forever."

Your Family Photographs

After your initial enquiry, we will chat about what you would like to gain from your session and we'll arrange a date. This date is secured when I have received the £70 session fee and you can then start planning what to wear! I'll send over my client guide containing everything you need to know regarding clothing, weather, location and what to bring with you on the day. 

After the session, I'll edit your images and come to your house for THE BIG REVEAL! This is where we watch a slideshow of your images together (with or without popcorn) and you can choose your favourites. The reason I come to your house is not only for your convenience when the little ones are in bed, but it means I will be able to see exactly where you want to display your images and offer helpful advice, enabling you to make informed decisions. I will be able to show you which size would work best above your fireplace, which grouping will go beautifully with your decor colours and which print finish will work best with the lighting in your room. If you have chosen the digital option, I'll be there to help you select your favourites as I know first-hand what a challenge that can be (just ask Jay about our wedding photos!) I will then take the hassle away and get your photographs and products ordered and delivered to your door ready to display around your home and give to your friends and family.
