FAMILY HOME SESSIONS
Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire Family Photographer
Children really do grow up very fast, and I want to capture those memories of them for you!
I offer home sessions in Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire that capture your family in the unique setting of your very own home. My style is very relaxed and natural, aimed at you all having fun together so I can capture your genuine and loving connections.
Being in your own home can really help the whole family feel relaxed and is ideal if you have a newborn. You have everything you need right at hand and I will follow your baby’s lead, so we go at their pace to accommodate for feeding, changes and cuddles if they’re not settled.
The early newborn days are often very hazy and even overwhelming, but it’s a wonderful time to capture your baby when they are still tiny – little toes, button noses and the biggest of yawns! I love capturing the adoration of new parents, you’re so often not in photos as you’re too busy taking them and then older brothers and sisters who think their new baby is just the most precious little thing ever. It really is a privilege for me to document these bonds.
PHOTOS ARE AMAZING
‘Tanya is warm, friendly and highly professional, ensuring we ended up with photos we absolutely love! Responsive both prior and post shoot, she made sure she found out about us and our wishes to make sure she could get the most out of our shoot. The photos are amazing and more than we could have hoped for. We would highly recommend Aldcroft Photography and we can’t wait for another excuse to book another shoot!’

YOUR FAMILIES SHOOT
I love meeting families and photographing them having fun together. It’s always an honour to capture a moment in a family’s story, watching them run, laugh and love. The best photos I take are when your family is happy and relaxed, whether that’s in your home, in the garden or out on location, I am happy to work around what suits you best, making for great natural images.
ALBUMS + FINE ART
Images will be made available in a private online gallery for digital downloads and ordering prints.
Bespoke Photo Albums
Want to be able to see your photos in a stunning coffee table book, but don’t know where to start? Have you tried to make a book yourself, but just found you don’t have the time? Are you looking for a personalised birthday or anniversary gift?
In a digital world it becomes so easy to lose our photos and forget those special moments. I provide a bespoke service to collate your photos and design a very high quality, but affordable book for you to treasure forever, without the stress of producing it yourself!
‘I cannot thank Tanya enough, her patience and professionalism throughout our photo shoot and aftercare has been really appreciated. Tanya has captured some real key memorable moments making selecting photos difficult.
Additionally, Tanya has spent time making requested adjustments to ensure we are happy with our photos and it has felt like talking with a friend I have known for years making the experience easy and comfortable.’
JAKE’S NEWBORN PHOTO SHOOT
Below are some FAQ, but if you have any further questions before booking, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Where in my home will you photograph?
I tend to photograph in the parent’s bedroom and living room, but this is very flexible and will also depend on the lighting. Please don’t worry about your house looking immaculate, I’m a Mum myself so I appreciate that a family home is often far from the ‘instagram’ perfection!
Do you give guidance for posing?
I do give prompts on how to pose, but often I just take the children’s lead so you get really genuine, natural and relaxed images, in keeping with my style of lifestyle photography. It’s usually about having fun with the kids, letting them jump on the bed or giving them tickles. I will give a bit more guidance on a newborn shoot, but nothing forced.
Can you give advice on what to wear?
Yes, but ultimately I want everyone to feel comfortable on their shoot so don’t wear something that you wouldn’t normally. Neutral colours are best on a family shoot, but if you like bold and bright and that’s your family’s personality, that’s ok too! I want to capture a true representation of your family. I also have a ‘what to expect’ guide that I send before your shoot which gives more info.
What if we need to reschedule?
Of course, if someone is sick or if there are extenuating circumstances we can reschedule.
When will I get my images?
I aim to deliver your online gallery within 2 weeks of your shoot. You will have an online password protected gallery that you can then order your prints from.
