Capturing their personalities

My sessions are all about having fun and capturing your children as they grow and develop. From tiny babies with little personalities to energetic children full of character, I have years of experience working with children of all ages and aim to provide you with a beautiful 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 and document their expressions and curiosity as they interact with their surroundings.

Outdoor Play
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. I direct sessions subtly, allowing the children to lead the way; if they want to wander off, I will wander with them, if they want to stop to admire a puddle then they can! Every child is different and there is no rush.

White Studio
My studio is available for sitting babies so we can capture all those little squishy details- the baby curls, the chubby fingers, the chunky thighs, the toe fluff, the wobbly walk, the way she turns the pages of her favourite story and even the dribble. No, ESPECIALLY the dribble! If you're like me, you'll want to remember these beautiful little details forever.
The studio is a naturally bright room with no backdrop as such so they are free to wander around and explore as they wish while I snap away. It has wooden floors, a pretend bed and a few wooden toys but I always advise bringing your child's favourite books and teddies. These little objects are not only a huge part of yours and your baby's life right now, but in years to come they will be a huge part of your memory.

Lifestyle Sessions At Home
In the comfort of your own surroundings, I will come to you and document moments in the place your children feel most content. Perfect for families with newborn babies, these sessions allow us to not only capture your tiny baby, but they also allow us to document a snapshot of the bigger picture; your house, decor, the nursery- these are all things that will be remembered fondly in years to come. 
These lifestyle photo shoots are also ideal for capturing older children as they go about their lives at home. Reading stories in their bedroom, tea parties in the garden, making dens, baking, playing with lego- the memories will be treasured for a lifetime.

"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

Family Photo Session 

Upon receiving the £70 session fee securing your date, I'll send over my client guide containing everything you need to know regarding clothing, weather, location and you can start thinking about what to wear!

After the session, I'll edit your images and either send you an online gallery or 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 have a look at some samples. The reason I offer to come to your house is so I can see your walls in person 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. 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.
