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).

Your £450 session fee includes :-


As much help as you need beforehand to prepare

Your "as much time as we need" session at a location of your choice or HERE on our beautiful farm with plenty of space for the children and dogs to run.

Your online viewing gallery containing around 40 beautifully toned and finished images from the day from which you can choose your favourites - either here (where you can have some help!) or in the comfort of your own home

And then choose your favourite THREE as a collection of digital files and prints with your absolute favourite as a matted 12x16* Fine Art print, double mounted and ready to drop into your own frame.


*Why 12x16? 

Because this is a lovely size for the wall and will usually fit in any room. Also - it is what, in the trade, we call a 'standard size'. As such you can go ANYWHERE  (Amazon, The Range, IKEA etc) and easily find 12x16" frames. 

Just drop your beautiful portrait in and - Da-Dah - a beautiful wall piece ready to hang. But - that said - all the printing at Annie Bee is totally bespoke. So if 12x16 isn't right for you, then we will just do something else!


Your images will stay available to order for a full 12 months so you can add to your collection at any time. Individual Fine Art prints with the matching digital file start at £45.

Or upgrade to one of the "All Images" Collections:-


THE BRONZE UPGRADE - £195

All of the digital files from your session with your 12x16 Fine Art print framed for you and ready to hang


THE SILVER UPGRADE - £295

All of the digital files from your session with a complimentary 20 page Italian album


THE GOLD UPGRADE - £395

All of the digital files from your session with both complimentary framing of your Fine Art print AND the Italian album

Plus a £50 Gift Voucher against your next session and a £50 Gift Voucher for a friend.

Travel time and costs are simply calculated at 85ppm from NN6 and - if overnight accommodation is required  - then this is similarly charged at cost (and I will always stay in a Travel Lodge....not your local Ritz!!) However, just ask for a bespoke quotation.

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 ;)
