Leeds Family Photography
You'll be invited to the studio around 1-2 weeks after your family photoshoot to view your images and select the package you'd like, or select from the A La Carte menu. Your images will be fully edited and ready to view. We'll talk through all your product options from digitals to wall art and discuss how to best showcase your pictures.
|The photoshoot can be a daunting prospect. Whether your family consists of older folk or you've got 5 kids under 5 and you're wondering how they'll behave. Please don't worry! My natural approach to family photography means I'll capture you & yours exactly as you are. No pressure to pose/perform or participate in something that's not "you".
Not sure what a family photoshoot entail? Don't worry - I got you!
I send all my clients a full prep guide ahead of their session so they know what to expect, what to wear and all the answers to any other questions they may have!
My approach to family photography is relaxed and unobtrusive. Whilst I do give gentle direction, I’ll mostly be there to capture your family moments exactly as they happen.

FAMILIES BY LUMIÈRE
My approach to family photography is relaxed and unobtrusive. Whilst I do give gentle direction, I’ll mostly be there to capture your family moments exactly as they happen. Every session can be totally tailored to suit your family, if you love being outdoors, grab your coat and boots and we’ll get some gorgeous family portraits in the woods.
If you’re more of a snuggle at home family, I’ll come and document those cosy moments on your very own sofa.
Lumiere have photographed a family photoshoot in the woods, a maternity shoot in the studio and a newborn shoot for us. Every experience with Lumiere has been fantastic and we love all of our pictures we have received. They are dotted around the house and remind us of such special times. Thank you so much - Highly Recommended!
We loved the final images Laura provided to us from our family shoot. The shots captured the essence of the moment perfectly. The HARDEST thing was picking which photos we wanted because there were so many good ones!
Laura's style is very relaxed which sets everyone at ease. She handled the kids, dogs and adults professionally. . We'd gladly use Lumiere again and can heartily recommend Laura.
We had a family shoot with Laura up on Otley Chevin and she was fantastic! She was brilliant with the children and had lots of ideas to get natural family shots. It was the perfect way to celebrate the end of a lockdown and we now have beautiful pictures to decorate our home with! The images are beautiful and we’ll treasure them for years to come.

What Should We Wear?
Where Should We Do Our Photoshoot?
I always advise clients to keep it simple! Go for earthy/muted tones, avoid big logos or distracting prints which can often dominate photos, but most importantly, wear something that feels comfortable and feels like you! It's always important to dress for the weather as well. If it's been raining a lot & we're going to be in woodland - sandals are probably a no go!
Family photoshoots can be done at my studio, in the comfort of your own home/garden or out on location.
Most of my clients pick a location photoshoot. This is often a favourite place/walking spot for you & your family. I'll happily suggest some great locations if you're stuck! It's also worth thinking about sunrise/sunset times as we want to avoid high sun/harsh shadows for your photoshoot.
Should We Bring Anything?
What Time Should We Have Our Shoot?
My style of photography is very natural. This includes lack of props/additions to the photoshoot so please don't feel the need to bring anything. My sessions are about you and your nearest and dearest - not silly accessories etc. It's all about the relationship between you and those natural moments and interactions.
As above, we want to avoid high sun/midday photos as this can create harsh lighting and shadows which aren't flattering. If it's a cloudy day - time doesn't matter as we avoid the forementioned. However if you happen to get good weather I'd suggest first thing in the morning - around 9am before shadows get too harsh, or late evening - around 7pm in summer so we get that lovely soft sunset.
