Family Photoshoot session details (portrait photography)

During your portrait photoshoot session we will take approx one hour capturing lots of fun and exciting pictures, there will be no rush to get finished during the session, we enjoy our work and often like to get carried away. We recommend you bring props that are personal to you (or the model we will be taking pictures of). When it comes to selecting what to wear, we advise clothing that is plain, colours that work well together as a group. Try to select clothing that is a reflection of you, something you feel good in, if you are unsure we will be more than happy to advise you. If you want some ideas about what to wear, check out our clothing ideas for your Portrait Photoshoot

Presentation of  your Photoshoot Images

Once the photoshoot is over, we require around one week to prepare your images for viewing. The portrait viewing experience is designed to present your images with ease. There will be no hard sell, this time is an enjoyable experience. Relax and select your favourite images and presentation styles with confidence. In the very unlikely event that you do not like any of the images you are certainly not obliged to buy any. You can walk away without paying a penny and are very welcome to come back for another appointment.

Collection your Photoshoot Images

Some images can be prepared and collected on the same day, others may require a little longer before being available, most usually within 14 days of the viewing date. We don’t hold pictures on file for longer than 12 weeks, so orders should be collected before this period has passed after your session. This applies to both prints and digital files.

Family photoshoot Reviews

“Update 21.12.20 – we used Mike Turner Photography again this year which must now be our tenth consecutive year. What can I say? Against the background of a horrid year across the world and with government restrictions that seemed to change daily, Mike, Hazel and Wendy were, once again, *superb*. They followed all social distancing and Wendy, as ever, came up with fresh, vibrant, wonderful new ideas for photos. Wendy is a legend – you will not go wrong there. Mike arranged our viewing remotely which we all adapted to and Hazel was fantastic in arranging for email copies of our photos. We all had to be flexible this year and the team were fantastic as ever. We regret we didn’t have G&G for our family photoshoot this year but hope we can make up for that soon. Thanks again for being a wonderful team and we will see you next year in 2021. Thanks again for everything.
PS would be remiss of me not to mention. I was fortunate to be promoted to Lieutenant Commander and my Mum wanted some photos (guess it’s a Mum thing). It was an unusual request but the team obliged and Mum was made up with Wendy’s photos of me in uniform for her special request.
So, in summary, an unusual year in terms of the rules but yet again an entirely usual year in terms of the quality of service we received. Thanks again to the wonderful team. You will not go wrong with Mike Turner Photography. Thanks to you all from the Driscoll Family xx”

“What a great team! I have visited twice now, the first time was for a couples photoshoot and the second time was for a family photoshoot. The whole experience is a pleasant one and I’m always delighted with the results of my photos. I’m very pleased to have found such a pleasant and talented team so local to me, I will continue to return here and highly recommend Mike Turner Photography.”

“Our family tradition continues with Mike and his brilliant team of Wendy and Hazel. We had our usual selection of photos. Wendy was brilliant with taking photos of our little boy and came up with, totally out of the blue, some fab ideas for the girls: Wendy had fans blowing their hair, garland flowers and – the pièce de résistance – jumping in the air photos. How Wendy managed to snap them in mid air, I’ll never know. Absolutely bowled over. Thank you!

Top notch, as always. We had many photos taken – some of all of us, some of just the children, various combinations and some of just Grandma and Grandad; I think G & G have come to regard our annual trip to Mike as very much part of their annual trip now, which is wonderful. Mike couldn’t have been more
welcoming – he always is. At the photoshoot, I asked could we book for next year. Hazel didn’t have a diary for winter 2020 (entirely understandably) and, bless Hazel, she only went out and bought one ready for our viewing session. Nice one, Hazel. Did we book for next year? Course we did. You will not go wrong with Mike Turner and his team. He carries my highest possible recommendation and has earned my complete trust over many years. Bravo Zulu.”

“Update 13.10.18: we used Mike again for the eighth consecutive year for our ritual, annual family photoshoot. It’s a firm family tradition and Mike, supported by his fabulous team of Wendy and Hazel have, once again, delivered in spades. Wendy worked her magic behind the camera, taking lots of shots and was so helpful in suggesting backgrounds and poses. In particular, we had a newborn (7 weeks) with us and everybody was so utterly nice and sympathetic towards the challenges and demands associated with a young baby. The pace was relaxed and the atmosphere so friendly. Mike guided us, as he always does, through the ever-difficult task of whittling down the shortlist when we went to view and Hazel made sure that everything ran smoothly. It should come as no surprise that we have already booked Mike, Wendy and Hazel again for next year. It continues to be a pleasure to be regular customer and as I wrote last year, I have absolutely every confidence in the team and, to use the exact turn of phrase I used last time: you will not go wrong..”

“I have used Mike for many years (>7) and been a regular repeat customer. Mike is a real gentleman and there is no ‘hard sell’ policy. He is wonderfully supported by Hazel who ensures that all the administration runs smoothly and Wendy who has taken some absolutely superb photographs of us over the years. All the team are excellent with kids and entirely family-friendly. I would recommend Mike without any shadow of hesitation and I am very happy to be one of his regular customers. He and his team are genuine. So much so, we have asked him to do our wedding photos by special personal request. I like him a lot (based on many years of business) and I recommend him 100%. You will not go wrong.”

“We called in with our 6 month old daughter Scarlett for family fotos, we had a brilliant experience, very professional. And when we called in to view them Mike didn’t rush us went through all the pictures, no pressure selling, and we were very happy with the framed family pictures we have displayed in our living room thanks again Mike and Hazel.”

“What a great photoshoot studio this is. From the moment we walked through the door, until the moment we left, there was a great sense of comfort and Wendy who took our photos was great with my son and daughter, making them both laugh and smile and capture some great photos. Mike and Hazel are both very welcoming and made the whole occasion feel personal and homely, highly recommended!! :)”

“Thank you to Mike, Hazel, Wendy and the team. Have used Mike several times over the past four years and can thoroughly recommend. Hazel has always been spot on front of house in managing appointments, Mike’s got a really relaxed manner when doing the viewings and there is no pressure whatsoever. Wendy has taken some lovely shots for me and is great with young children. I have been a repeat customer for four years and look forward to many years to come. Thoroughly recommended. Nice one, Mark”
