YOUR FAMILY PHOTO

There are only three things you need to know about family photos:-


1. You should have a blast having it taken (because this is what you will remember every time you look at it)

2. You should ALL be in it (which, in fairness, is why you are probably booking me in the first place). And this INCLUDES the dogs. Because dogs are family too.

3. It should be printed. Because this is the only way it will survive the ravages of technological change and you will still be able to look at it in 30 years time


So, to help you achieve these three seemingly impossible missions we have some RULES here at Annie Bee:-


Firstly " Zero Stress Sessions" with NO time restraints and NO rigid posing rules. If the kids/dogs/both need to run around for the first 30 minutes just to let off steam - that's fine with me. If we've got 90 year old grandparents joining us and need to be super quick - that's fine with me too.


Secondly  as much help as you need BEFORE your session getting everyone in the right zone not to mention the right clothes.

Or, if the latter is just TOTALLY a step too far..... we do everything in Black and White.

Honestly....we really do!

I'm a Mum/Wife/Daughter/Stressed-With-Life/Real Human Being too. I know what this can be like to try to organise.

Dad probably wants to be somewhere else.

The teenagers can think of NOTHING worse.

You've got elderly parents and you're wondering if they're even physically up to it.

And then you look at the washing and wonder if you can even get everyone in CLEAN clothes at the same time and on the same day, let alone in co-ordinating ones (I mean - lets face it - what family really has matching beige chinos and white t-shirts?!)

And then you look in the mirror....and wonder if you SHOULD loose that half a stone first after all?

And then you just give up - because there is just TOO much to think about.

And another year rolls by.


Don't worry - I SO get it!!!


Just DO it!  Get booked in and it'll be a hundred times easier than you think! Just choose somewhere lovely. And that can be whatever works for YOU. It can be the park. The garden. Grannys Garden.  Grannys garden in her nursing home. Your caravan in Wales. Your holiday home in Scotland. Your private island in the Bahamas. 

Or come to me. It won't be quite the same as your private island in the Bahamas but we do farm at home and I can guarantee I can find a lovely spot.

And never dismiss the pub as a location. If you've booked a family meal for something lovely - I'll meet you there. We'll just do something super special before you eat. It hardly gets any easier than that (AND they can all have a drink. AND you don't have to cook).

AND AFTERWARDS...Forget 'choosing'.


I want you to pay for EXACTLY what you are having. And I want you to KNOW what that is at the outset. I don't want you to have to leave beautiful images of the people you love on the table because 'you want them all' but then can't because that will blow your budget to smithereens.


So book me for my time and you will get EVERY beautifully finished portrait that we make between us sized for storing and for sharing with the world.  Downloadable direct from your viewing gallery they will be sized beautifully for your social media platform of choice - Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn.


And - whichever session you choose, you will also receive at least ONE Fine Art print - Double Mounted and Ready to drop into your own frame and hang on the wall. 


  Because digital storage changes continually and Social Media platforms will come and go - and so that Fine Art print is the only way to preserve those memories for ever.

PS You do NOT need to loose half a stone. I can make you loose that just by the way I make you stand! Trust me....my reputation as a witch is not without foundation ;)
