OUTDOOR FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY

Do you love getting outdoors with your family? And would you like photographs of some of the things you love most about your family with you in them?

I am an Orpington family photographer who specialises in capturing a family’s beautiful love & memories in our stunning local countryside.

We begin with a phone call to plan the details and end with photographs to cherish for a lifetime! 

If you’re thinking about giving a loved one the gift of memories, I also have a range of gift vouchers available to purchase from my gift vouchers page.

And if you would like to book either a mini or a full family photo shoot, simply click below, or keep scrolling for more information.

ABOUT YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER LUCI

As a mum myself, I genuinely appreciate the value of having really lovely photographs of you with your children, captured by a professional!

And because I enjoy photographing my clients in the best possible light, a few years ago, I invested in training with two multiple UK award-winning family photographers. I am very honoured to share that since then, my work (including as a baby photographer in Orpington) has been published in The Guild of Photographers‘ Creative Light Magazine as well as the below publications!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What if it rains?

Touch wood, I’ve not had a client shoot rained on yet!

This is because, at the time of booking, we also schedule a back-up date, in case of rain. Two days before your shoot, I triangulate three trusted weather sources, and text you to confirm the weather forecast / if we will need to move to the back up date.

For mini shoots, we schedule for the morning, and keep the afternoon free (again, texting you two days before your shoot to confirm our exact meeting time) in case of forecast showers.

Can we do some photographs at home and some elsewhere?

Absolutely, yes for full family photo shoots! During the consultation, we can look at the best places to photograph in your home, and also discuss where would suit your family best in terms of a nearby outdoor location too!

Can I buy gift vouchers for a shoot?

You’re very welcome to purchase a photo shoot as a gift!

You can either book a session directly below then let me know to whom you would like the gift voucher sent, or get in touch to purchase a gift voucher which can be used at a future date.

BEAUTIFUL PROFESSIONAL PRINTS & WALL ART FOR YOUR HOME

I am very passionate about great quality, heritage wall art and prints for your home, which is why professional prints are included as standard in all of my collections.

Combining shooting for images you would love to have, premium quality prints, and knowledge of what will look great in your home using suppliers such as John Lewis, enables me to make suggestions for bespoke premium heritage wall art & / albums in your home at your viewing session, without the premium price tag.

HOW THE FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY SHOOT WORKS  

Book

To book with Orpington family photographer Luci, you just need to confirm when you would like to have your shoot and settle your deposit via bank transfer. Simply either complete the contact form on this page or send an email to luci@lucischofieldphotography.com to make the necessary arrangements.

Plan

We begin with a conversation (consultation), typically in your home, about the photographs which would mean the world to you. It takes 30 – 40 minutes, and with the hybrid working now available to so many of us, clients often diarise this for either the start or towards the end of the working day.

We work backwards, from what you would like to do with your images (display them in a particular place, create a keepsake album…), and then use your answers to a collection of really simple questions to create images which are truly personal to you and your family:

  • Where would you like to display your images? In an album or on a particular wall at home? This also helps us think about the shoot’s location & colours – and your wardrobe too! And most importantly, it helps us make sure your images suit the space in which you wish to display them, perfectly.
  • Would you like some help with putting together your wardrobe? I’m yet to meet a client whose eyes haven’t lit up and exclaimed “YES!”. There’s nothing quite as satisfying as looking through your wardrobe with you to help you find outfits for you and your family, which will both suit your family’s personality and photograph well. This usually takes just 10 minutes, and the smiles are awesome!
  • When’s the best time of day for your child/children? Mornings around 10am are often a good start time for most families, factoring in any all important naps. 
  • Which games does your child / do your children love playing with you? 
  • Is there anything else which is special that you would love to remember about what your child is / children are doing right now?
  • In terms of location(s), many clients feel at their most relaxed having their shoots at home, (British weather permitting) and/or a cherished nearby outdoor location. I am happy to travel (with expenses covered), so if there is a place you’d love to explore, or an activity you’d especially love to have captured with your family – just say the word!

Having finalised our plan, we confirm our time & location(s) for the shoot, and your session to view your photographs.

Shoot

Lasting up to 2 hours, our photo shoot is designed to be relaxed with plenty of time for fun, downtime & snacks, using the games we talked about in our earlier conversation, among other things, to help capture your relaxed laughter, smiles, love and connection as you enjoy spending time together! 

View & Enjoy 

7 – 10 working days after your shoot, we meet again, typically in your home, for your viewing. We will look at your photographs, and I will also make suggestions for your consideration as to how to best display them, using the professional prints from your package, in beautiful frames such as the ones from John Lewis. Upon payment for the package by bank transfer at your viewing session, your selected stunning high resolution digital images will be made available for you to download and enjoy immediately, and your professionally printed products will arrive at your home address within 4 – 6 weeks. 

WHAT MY CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

We have now had 3 shoots with the wonderful Luci over the last few years – a winter family shoot at High Elms Country Park, one at home and a further newborn/family photo shoot this year. We now have lots of amazing photos throughout the house and can’t thank Luci enough for capturing these special moments and amazing images… It has been a real pleasure working with Luci – she has been amazing with us all, coming to see us beforehand to get a feel for what we wanted and sharing her ideas – not forgetting having the patience of a saint with our 3 young and very energetic boys now 9, 7 and 5 (excluding our newest addition). Thank you Luci – we look forward to the next one… I’ll just need to get some more frames!

 

Mrs Wheeler, Petts Wood (google review)

Luci is so wonderful! We recently enlisted Luci with the tricky task of taking some autumn family pictures. (With two little boys under 4, this is not for the faint of heart!). She was brilliant. She found the most gorgeous autumn coloured location and took some of the most beautiful, natural photos of our family. I will treasure them forever! 

As a person, Luci is so warm and welcoming. She is easy to talk to and an amazing listener. Her ability to listen to what you want out of your session and translate that to a beautiful keepsake memory is undeniable. I recommend Luci to everyone who is looking for beautiful, natural, organic photos! Definitely will make our family pictures with Luci an annual treat!
