Annie Burbage Family 1
There are only three things you need to know about family photos outside:-

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. If you want to do it all outside – that’s fine with me. If you wat to all come and do something in the warm in the studio – 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. Granny’s Garden.  Granny’s 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 outside. Or we can work in my super snug and warm studio where we don’t even have to THINK about the dark and wet evening happening outside!!

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 session fee includes:-


As much help as you need beforehand to prepare

Your “as much time as we need” (usually about an hour to an hour and a half, but we’ll time it to match the energy levels of the Little People and/or Grandparents)  session either at a location of your choice* or on our beautiful farm with plenty of space for the children and dogs to run.

A final gallery (usually around 30 images) beautifully toned and edited in your own private gallery on the Annie Bee website.

A licence to download your favourite 10 with full printing rights.


Your favourite as a Fine Art print double mounted and framed at 16×12″



All of the above but from an extended session (two to two and a half hours hours) that will give you a finished gallery of around 60 images.

Perfect for Big Family Groups and Extended Families (I can split the session fee amongst you all if you want me to!)

Or perfect for YOU if you would simply love a lot more images as this session includes a licence to download TWENTY images with full printing rights

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
