Outdoor Family SessionS 2022




My family outdoor sessions are filled with fun, laughter, games and quiet cuddles so even those who are not fond of having their photographs taken love them! I will guide you to get the best from the location and light so that you have beautiful images of your portrait session but the focus will be on you and your family doing what you do best, loving each other. More examples of images from family sessions can be found on my portfolio page or on my Instagram account @jojocooperphotography.

All outdoor sessions take place in the early evening before sunset so start times vary throughout the season.  We start sessions in late March at 5pm through to mid October at 4.30pm. Through the middle of the summer when the days re at their longest, we start around 7.30pm to catch that beautiful mid summer golden glow.

For more information on available dates and times, please drop me a message and I’ll get straight back to you.

Where do these sessions take place?

I have some favourite locations that I know work really well for families near Farnham and Cranleigh so I will be shooting Autumn sessions at one or the other.

I'm nervous my children won't behave!

Don’t worry about a thing! I have photographed literally hundreds of families and have coaxed even the most reluctant child (and parent for that matter!) out of their shell to have fun. As we play games and move round a lot, children are engaged and are never ‘forced’ to do something they don’t want to. I concentrate on families in various combinations ensuring that everyone gets a turn and everyone has a break when they need it.

How do I prepare for my session?

Apart from talking through your outfits, it’s really important that you arrive on the day as relaxed as possible. Everyone can leave their ‘cheese’ smiles at home because what we want is a family ready to have fun together for a while. Talk to your kids about it being a fun time rather than a time when they ‘must behave’ always works best.

Will you help me with what to wear?

Of course, this is one of the most important elements of your session. I will invite you to send over your outfit ideas by WhatsApp and we’ll fill in any gaps together. Do this as early as possible in case you feel like treating yourself to something new! Send me links to things you’re thinking of buying or even let me know when you’re going shopping and we can do a virtual shopping trip!

I feel very self conscious in front of the camera, will your sessions still work for me?

The majority of my clients have admitted the same which is why you are the best person for my sessions. Without the pressure to look at the camera and with lots of encouragement to have fun and be yourself, you’ll love having your photo taken. Promise.

What about the weather? We’re in England after all...

Most types of weather won’t stop me shooting but if the forecast is consistently not great, we’ll make a call the day before and reschedule, I keep Sundays free for this reason. To get the very best light of the day it’s vital that we shoot just before sunset, the exact times will change as the days shorten through the Autumn.

How long will I have to wait to see my photos?

I’ll have your photos uploaded to your online gallery within two weeks of your session where you’ll be able to download them immediately, if things are really busy and there is a delay, I’ll let you know.

What printed products do you offer?

I love seeing your photos in print and only use the very best print labs for my products. I offer stunning lay flat albums with incredible matte paper and bespoke covers as well as framed prints handmade by my local framer. Do ask for more information, if you’d like something else, I can probably source it for you.
