I'm so glad you're interested in a family session with me. These sessions have been my favourite genre for the past 7 years and I don't see that changing any time soon!
As well as outdoor family sessions, I provide lifestyle photography in the home for those who want to be photographed surrounded by their favourite things. These lifestyle shoots document the family's genuine moments in their own surroundings, capturing memories that will be treasured for years.
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.
So let's play!
Felt at ease straight away"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."
Which session is right for you?
Depending on the ages of your children and your particular tastes, different sessions will work better for different families. Choose your session type from the options below:
You and your children choose a location in which they will be able to show off their own individual personalities – perhaps a park, the local woods or a favourite walk.
If you struggle to choose I know the local area well and can suggest some locations based on the time of year and ages of your children. 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.
DOCUMENT THEIR CHILDHOOD
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.
ALL Sessions Include the following:
Online Gallery or In-person SlideshowI'll send you an online gallery or come to your house for THE BIG REVEAL! This is where I present a slideshow of your images 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 advice. I'll 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
Some families have a location in mind already as it means something to them as a family. But some have no preference so I’m happy to make suggestions based on the time of year and the ages of your children.
I will keep an eye on the weather and will be in touch if we have to rearrange. Grey skies aren’t a bad thing but if it’s really raining heavily then we’ll rearrange. You won’t lose your deposit.
Yes. Grandparents are more than welcome.
The sessions last up to 2 hours to allow enough time for your children to fully relax and be completely themselves. However, if your child is young and is getting tired or can't walk for very long then we can just finish when they're ready. There’s no pressure at all.
I take a £50 non-refundable deposit on booking to secure your date then nothing else is payable until you view your gallery and decide which collection you’d like to purchase. The £50 is deducted from the collection price.
I will bring my samples to the gallery reveal in your home where we can hold them up against your walls and decide which would work best.
