AUTUMn MINI SESSIONS in Leigh on sea

Want some colourful family photos this Autumn in just half an hour?

My Autumn woodland family mini sessions are a quick and simple way to update your family portraits. It’s a relaxed and fun outdoor photo shoot, set in local Belfairs woods in Leigh on Sea, Essex.

Autumn time is like no other time of the year – with its glorious golden, orange and deep red leaves… Time, when nature puts on the most beautiful backdrop for your family photos. No wonder, this is the most favourite time of the year for outdoor photography! It’s playful and that’s why it will feel more like a fun family experience rather than a photoshoot. Your children will enjoy exploring the nature and the adventure, leaving you loving those moments with your beautiful family whilst I capture the perfect memories for you!

We recently booked Petra for an Autumn mini photoshoot with our three and six year old. We have always struggled to get any nice photos of us all together but Petra was very patient and made the children feel very relaxed. She went above and beyond - the end result was some amazing photos which we love. We choose Belfairs woods as the setting and the autumn colours were beautiful. I would definitely recommend Petra to anybody looking for some family photos.

Have YOU GOT a question?

The location for the photoshoots is Belfairs woods in Leigh on Sea. I like to mix it up a little so every year will be different to year before. Exact meet up location will be shared with all clients closer to time.

Little people on their own, siblings, family, furry best friends if you have one or a special teddy your little one won‘t go without. This photoshoot‘s aim is to have some fun! Only immediate family members in one photoshoot!

Weather at this time of year may be unpredictable, some days are warmer than others. I would recommend to dress for the weather, so everyone feels comfortable and warm. It’s really important that you all feel happy.

It may be bit drizzly, so jackets (bodywarmer or raincoat) may be essential! Ground may be wet and muddy so wellies may be the best option (for little or big) for footwear. Woolly jumpers, hats, scarfs are great, chunky knitts and layers look amazing in the autumnal scenery!

What if the forecast is rain? We will simply re-schedule if the weather is bad, we will make decision on the morning of your photoshoot.

Choose a complimentary colour palette for everyone and stick to it. You don’t have to match, just compliment each others colours. The backdrop is beautifully autumnal, so be at one with the nature!

Colour palettes of creams/greys/denims/plums/mustards and oranges look amazing! I.e. choose a base colour (say demin and cream) and an ‘accent’ colour, like yellow.

Avoid vivid ‘unnatural’ bright colours that will draw the eye to the colour, rather than the you! Bright pinks will clash with Autumn itself, so you may like to avoid this one! Dusky pinks would work better. Try to stay away from bold, eye-catching patterns. Instead, keep it simple. Please avoid tops with large lettering or logos as these will just be a distraction.

Finally, I know black is a very popular colour, but for the scenery in Autumn… it can be a little dull!

All that said, being you is the most important thing so just wear what you feel good in 🙂

A great way to make your photoshoot unique is to bring something personal to you. Whether it is your child‘s teddy, wooden push cart/wagon or a basket to carry leaves or conkers, perhaps a pumpkin that animals can feed on after or an umbrella sounds like fun. If it is wet and there are muddy puddles they can jump in with your permission so you may like to bring change of clothes.

Simply fill in the form above and choose your date/time. Click on the ‘Buy now’ button to secure your booking. The session is non-refundable. In an event of bad weather, I will reschedule your session free of charge. If your child appears to be poorly, please let me know as soon as you can. I have left few slots available on other days to be able to offer another time for unpredictable circumstances.

If dates are not yet available, sign up to receive an email when dates are released so you don’t miss out.

A private online gallery secured by a password will be sent to you within 1 week after your session to choose your final images for edit. Editing process will commence after the order is paid in full (if additional images are purchased) and digital download will be available within 1-3 weeks from the date of order. Prints will be posted to your address or can be collected at convenient time from my home.

Because some memories are just too good to miss…
