THE TALK ABOUT MONEY
We all have our own special ways of seeing, celebrating and embracing our world.
My gift is in capturing the fleeting moments that reveal the unique relationships you have with the most important people in your life.
The resulting photographs will be pieces of art that will always remind you of what sets those people apart from everyone else and makes them so precious to you.
I offer Documentary Photo Sessions of varying lengths, but whenever possible I recommend booking a longer session, since the more time I have with you the more easily everyone lets their guard down and allows their true personalities to shine through.
Our family photo session was a nice morning stroll in the woods. This is how I remember it. Relaxed, with no perfect poses pressure, just our natural way of being together, kids’ laughter, lots of tickles and running around.
When we saw the photos we were amazed, really widemouthed. A good photographer makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera, even if you usually are far from being so. A good photographer knows that the best photos are the ones that show the real personality of the protagonists. So we really thank you and wish to repeat this very soon.
If you would like some amazing photos of your family to look back at and relive your feelings, emotions and the atmosphere, then you have to call Ralu.
All of my Family Documentary Photo Sessions start with a session fee that is due at the time of booking.
The Session fees start from £175 and include:
• A personal consultation before the day of the session, either in person or over the phone.
• My full involvement at every stage, from capturing your photographs to editing and processing them to working with you to decide which final products would be best for your family.
• A private, online gallery of your photos.
Please note that the session fee does not include digital files or any other products, which may be purchased separately.
Once we have decided together which session length would work best for you, I will recommend a custom package that is tailored to your own specific needs.
For reference, my three most common sessions are:
SHORT FAMILY SESSION
This will give us 2 hours together.
In this session you can chose between a more documentary approach (family led and no involvement from me) or a lifestyle approach (family led but with some direction from me) .
In the end, you will have around 30-50 edited images to choose from in your private online gallery.
HALF DAY SESSION
This is a 4 to 5-hour documentary session.
I recommend this session for families who want photographs of themselves getting out and ‘doing something’ together. It might be having a picnic, going to the zoo, spending a day in London or anything else your family would enjoy doing together.
You will have between 50-100 finished images to choose from in the private online gallery.
DAY IN THE LIFE SESSION
This is exactly what it sounds like! I will spend 8-10 hours with your family documenting a typical day in your life, from the moment you get up to putting the kids to bed and everything in between.
The accent will be on capturing the beauty of everyday life, the fleeting moments, the unexpected surprises and the crazy routines.
Although I prefer shooting in a fully-documentary style, if you would like to have a few more ‘traditional’ photos, we can work a short (20-30 minutes) lifestyle session into our time together.
Lifestyle portraits are not fully documentary, but involve a little bit of guidance from me to draw out specific interactions between your family members.
