APPROACH & STYLE

Much like my wedding photography, I prefer to observe and document for the majority of the time, with some orchestration, rather than continual posing. Family shoots will always include some posed portraits but my aim is to ensure they are as natural as possible with genuine smiles and that those brief yet real moments in-between are also captured.

Shoots can happen outside at an agreed location or at your family home. The latter negates any worries about weather conditions and to be honest, some of my favourite family shoots have been in the family home, where people feel more relaxed and confident just being themselves.

These shoots are about letting you guys be you and creatively capturing your personalities and how you exist together. Honest yet slightly polished :)

THE DELIVERABLES

Everything is delivered to you within 2 weeks of the shoot, usually sooner.

As standard, you will receive a short Slideshow (set to music) of the best moments and an online picture gallery of the high resolution, edited photographs. You get to download these files for free and have access to an online print lab if the digital product is not enough.

If you opt for a Digital + Print package, you will receive all the digital files plus the agreed physical print items.

PRICING APPROACH

I keep my pricing approach for family lifestyle & portrait shoots super simple.

I'm not that photographer who releases a few images then has you come into the studio so you can spend more to get access to more images and prints. With me, it's one flat fee to cover my time and you get a lot of edited images from the shoot.

We love selling prints/albums too, those are important, but the basic package is full of real value as standard, and often more than you need.

My Tribe

Picture of Dorset Family Photographer, Clarkie Photography

I’m Rich and I’m currently based in Dorset, just outside of Poole, where I live with my wife Clare and my 2 boys, Toby & Charlie. We recently returned to the UK after 10 years living and working in Los Angeles, CA. 

As you might have spotted, my focus during the year is capturing wedding stories, I absolutely love photographing weddings and that will never change. However, as a Dorset Family Photographer, I also love working with families to produce timeless and authentic memories which parents cherish for years to come.

I have historically only shot around 10 families each year, but I’m now looking to increase that number. Maybe it’s the fact I now have a growing family of my own and have a new sense of the importance of not missing all those moments and the fear of it all flying by way too fast!
