Making Memories

Thank you for visiting Helen Rayner Photography.

I have become well known in South Bucks for my relaxed family sessions, using the natural light of the changing seasons as a backdrop for your photographs.

I have won awards for my fun style of photography, and I love the fact that I can capture the memories while you make them!

The page below has all the information you need about a family shoot with me, any questions at all please just ask.

WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR FAMILY PHOTOSHOOT

FUN! And lots of it!

I will take some time to get to know you and the children, to relax everyone and put you all at ease, and I will explain exactly what will happen so no one is feeling insecure.

I often spend some time playing around with the children or showing them my camera, they love to show me their special toys too! Once everyone is relaxed I will start taking the photos, I will of course guide you to the best postitions for light and compostion and then we take it from there.

YOUR QUESTIONS

Take a look at the FAQ’s to help build the picture

Family Photography

 Just as we are…

How long will my session be?

It is usually between 1- 2 hours, this depends a lot on how may people there are in your group and how tolerant the children are! with really little ones it is better to keep things moving and keep it short but fun.

Help! I'm so awkward in front of a camera!

So many people say this to me! Believe me, you will soon be so relaxed and really just concerntrating on being out with the family, you will be surprised how lovely you look when you are with the people you love and you have dressed for the occasion. And don’t forget, I have had plently of experience with this and will tell you what works and what doesn’t so you won’t need to feel awkward at all. You can relax and trust me!

Please can you photoshop my wrinkles?

Again, so many people ask me this! Usually with no need at all. We always look our best when we are being ourselves!

I will always do a light edit on my photographs, to make the colours pop and the composition stunning. Your photographs will look professional and relaxed and will reflect you and your family completely. 

I can certainly cover up spots and bruises if needs be though!

What is the best location for outdoor photographs?

I have plenty of special locations that I have scouted over the last few years, we can discuss the kind of shoot you would like and then work out the most suitable location, it could even be your own back garden or living room, or a unique place full of family memories. This is your shoot so you get to choose!

What if it rains?

Good question! At any time of year it’s important to keep a close eye on the changing weather. If the outlook is bleak we can either reschedule or use my studio in Chalfont St Peter.
