family photography aberdeenshire

Let me tell you a secret… you don’t have to stand and pose for a family portrait.

We had so much fun wandering through the fields and outcrops during our outdoor family session! Cheryl was so accommodating, friendly and professional. A really relaxed session where she was able to capture us all as we are in our own environment. Lots of lovely photos is making choosing which ones to order a real challenge!



Once you’re all booked in, I will have a wee chat with you and try to get to know you a bit better. We’ll choose a location that you love so that you will be totally at ease and can just relax and enjoy some time together.


This can be in your own home, or somewhere you enjoy spending time as a family. Show me your favourite places to explore! If you don’t know where to go, I can provide some suggestions.


There is no need for impeccably coordinated outfits! No need to rush to the shops to get matching outfits for everyone before the session! Just wear whatever you are most comfortable in.


The photo shoot is a fun, stress-free experience.

Children don’t need to sit still and pose for the camera. If they’re running around – great! It’s all about having fun rather than being told where to stand and most importantly, I will never force a smile for the camera!

Apart from the odd moment where I may try and make a shy child giggle, or give you slight direction for the best light, the main aim of the session is for you to have fun, be yourselves and be as relaxed as possible.

Cheryl is quite simply a genius! I booked her for photos of my daughter. She ended up getting a couple of us together. Very natural candid pics that I love. Me being someone that hates having a photo taken and hates photos I am in. She does a great job of putting you at ease and just snaps away as she goes.Fee


I aim to provide a sneak peek the same day as the session, while I work on editing the remainder of the gallery. Finished galleries will usually be ready 2 or 3 days after the session, but occasionally it may take me a little longer.

Galleries contain up to 40 images which have been edited in my own style. Sessions that are 30 minutes long may have slightly less images in the gallery due to the time constraint of the session.

A link will be emailed to you so that you can view your gallery online for a period of 1 month after the shoot date.
