Photography for Children & Families

Any parent will know that when you have a baby you are suddenly bombarded with marketing from all sorts of people trying to sell you products, including photographers, so at Fourth Left we keep ourselves out of the baby magazines and door to door marketing.

If you’re considering us for your baby, children’s and family photography it’s because you are fed up with offers of a ‘free’ photography shoot, only to find out afterwards that prints cost so much you can’t actually afford to buy any. Our prices are upfront and our prints are affordable.

Some Examples of Our Child Photography

Why Our Photographs of Your Children are Different

You might not be the sort of person who likes waggling your child around in front of a stark white background-if you are we’ve got one but we’ll bring it to you rather than you having to travel to a studio. But if that’s not you let’s go to the park, the zoo, your house, anywhere! Let’s take pictures of your wonderful family somewhere they feel happy and comfortable.

Both Ella and David hold enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service checks (formerly known as CRB checks), as well as a suitable level of silliness to ensure both you and your children are happy while having your photo taken.

Creating Natural Images of Children

When you speak to Ella she will ask you a few questions to find out what makes you and your family unique and what’s important to you. From this she can help you work out what feel you would like for your photo shoot-if you want to theme it, keep it natural, high energy or low key.

We can provide props and will usually bring a few with us to work with, but children often feel happier playing with their own toys. Ella will also help you to plan a few bit and pieces to bring with you, this might mean toys, clothes or even food if your little treasures aren’t the neat and tidy types.
As well as on location shoots for child and family portraits, at Fourth Left we love to record special occasions. Children’s birthday parties are often one of few occasions where certain friends and family get the chance to reunite and the colour and energy involved can produce some absolutely stunning images.

With families living further apart than ever a birthday party offers an opportunity to boost the photo album with some impromptu family portraits, and grandparents often love to receive these as presents.
We can build these into your day as we go, or, if there is space available, set aside an area and some time to take some staged portraits and group shots. If you know you will want these please mention it when you speak to us so we can check your home or venue has enough space for our lighting equipment.

Getting Started With Child Photography

We’re based in Farnham in Surrey and cover a 20-mile radius into Hampshire & Berkshire. If you’re interested in commissioning some truly captivating photographs of your children then the first step is to get in touch with us with a few details about you. From that point, we can answer any questions you might have and hopefully arrange to pay you and your children a visit.
