Re-think the family portrait. What is a “nature photography experience”?


The Nature photography experience is not just a photo shoot. As a mum of four boys who loves to have the home covered in family photos, I know the challenges of trying to get young children (or any children) to sit still and keep quiet at a studio photo shoot. This is not what I have on offer for you. Here I have designed a photography experience for your family that you will love, the kids will love and even dad will love. The Nature photography experience is tailored to your family and all you have to do is come along and be prepared to have fun. From there, the magical moments naturally happen. My mission is to encourage you and your family to embrace nature, take some time out from the hustle and bustle of life and reconnect with your loved ones during a nature immersed photography experience.

What can you expect from a nature photography experience?

As soon as you book in your date for the photography experience and pay the deposit, you will receive a little nature based gift in the post. This is to get you and the kids ready for some nature based fun and to say a little thank you for booking a nature photography experience with Claire Victoria Photography.

What else can you expect? Lots and lots of fun. The whole experience is tailored around you and your family and can be personalised for you. We can discuss ideas on the phone or book in a zoom video call so I can meet the whole family before the big day. We discuss ideas of where to go too. It’s a lovely idea to choose somewhere that you and your family have a strong connection too or are fond of, this just adds to the magic of capturing your memories on camera. If you’re in need of some ideas, I can make some suggestions too. I offer a documentary approach to photography and the aim of the session is to capture you all having fun and embracing the outdoors and one another.


Do you offer guidance during the photography experience?

When I meet you and your family at your chosen location I love to get to know you and the children a little more and I always find it takes a few minutes for the kids to warm up. We’ll begin with a walk and this is a great time to have a chat with everyone as we begin our adventure. I don’t offer guidance as such but I do suggest games and nature activities for you and the children to try. A game of hide and seek always goes down well. Who doesn’t love a game of hide and seek?


Can you prepare for the photography experience?

All you need is you, your children, the dog (if you want to) and whatever you would usually bring along to a family walk in the woods or family outing to the beach. This is your family adventure and I want you and your family to relax and just be you. The beauty of a nature photography experience is that we are simply capturing your unique moments outdoors and playing organically. It is a wonderful experience to capture your child’s individual character and spirit. Children are amazingly curious and a nature photography experience allows them the freedom to explore, relax and just be themselves. This is all about you being you and simply having fun. If you’d like to bring along a hot chocolate and snack to enjoy with the family mid session that’s absolutely fine too.


When is the best time of year for a family nature photography experience?

Any time of year. In the UK, we are lucky to have such varied seasons and each one brings with it unique family photos. Summer photos are fantastic for bright and airy family photos, whereas Autumn, Winter and Spring offer a more subtle lighting and varying levels of clothing. I personally love a snuggly scarf photo and the beautiful colours that autumn offers.


What happens after the photography experience?

At the end of the nature photography experience we say our goodbyes and I leave you to continue to enjoy the great outdoors or to head home. Your images will then be edited and presented online in a private gallery (within 10 working days) for you to view and share with family or friends. At this point you are able to select your one A4 framed image plus any additional prints for framing. Once selected, I will then organise for the USB with your collection of family images to be sent out to you in the post along with your A4 framed photo.
