What's the first step for a family session?
An in home consultation is the perfect opportunity for us to get to know each other and for you to ask any other questions or concerns you have about your family photo session. It also allows us to really plan for your shoot and to ensure that the images we create will suit your home and your lifestyle. And where certain images will work best in your home. Consultation meetings work best when the whole family are available. (but not essential).
Don't miss out
Occasionally, we release very limited FREE sittings for family sessions. The 30 minute session is free and your image proofs will presented in person, at our studio, where you can decide how you would like your favorites printed through our professional print lab. Sign up below to be alerted when our next mini sessions become available.
(All print and product after your free session can be sourced through our studio)

"I highly recommend Stuart as a photographer. He was easy to get in touch with and very accommodating as far as my family's hectic schedule goes. Stuart took my family's photograph and we couldn't be happier with how the outdoor photograph session went and with the beautiful results. Stuart was great with my whole family, including a shy toddler and a somewhat unfriendly dog. He was very comfortable to work with. He gave my family pictures that we will cherish for a lifetime. I definitely recommend Stuart for family portraits."

What happens during our photo session?
We will meet at your chosen location and if you're having group photos, to help you all relax, we find it best to have you all walking together first, where we will take a lot of candid shots. This will help you get used to the camera. Next, we'll move into the group and formal family photo poses (assuming the formal photos are part of the overall plan). After the formals, we'll break down into smaller groups.
"Stuart was wonderful to work with! He took some beautiful family holiday pictures for us! He was very easy to work with and was very receptive to my requests and suggestions. Very quick turn around time and the perfect balance of editing.... I don't like when pictures are so photo shopped that they look fake.... I would definitely recommend Stuart Beeby!" -
Danielle M, Waltham MA
What happens after?
Once your photo session is over, you'll feel happy, relaxed and you'll feel a sense of achievement and togetherness. Why not treat yourself further!? After all, you'll all be looking and feeling your best so I find its a good idea to plan ahead and book the family in for dinner at a nice local restaurant where you can talk about your session and get excited about your photos..
When will we see our Session images?
Within 7 -10 days your images will be ready to viewed. We'll set up your selection session at our studio, where you'll see your images on a large screen, which is the best way to see them for the first time.
Once you've made your selections, they will be worked on further with Detailed editing including blemish removal, eyes sharpening, subtle skin softening, fine hair removal, detailed adjustments.
This is the final editing part which is where your selections will be given a lot of love and attention and made ready for printing.
Do you include digital files?
Our overall aim is for all our families to enjoy and cherish the memories we capture in printed format. However, all our packages include digital files but please note that our session fee is for our time on location and post processing images only. Session fees alone do not include the digital files. Digital files are made available after your session in a number of different formats from web resolution to high resolution.
