We start our 3-in-1 Happimess sessions with the ‘I am ONE’ shoot, where we use our bright coloured o, n and e letters.  We also have our smaller cream wooden set of letters .  This is followed by the Cake Smash shoot, and then the wash off in our Tub n Bubs shoot.  The pics attached to this blog is Yusuf enjoying his Harry Potter themed cake smash and then his wash off in a vintage pale.

Enjoy your Family Photo session – forget about the camera!

We ensure YOU all enjoy your Family Photo time!

And we have our gallery of images to prove this … see link below.

Our studio is in an old mill in the heart of Saddleworth (near Oldham).   It’s large but it’s warm and relaxed – a very informal studio environment for your family photo session.

At Shy Violet Photography, we have some great & creative ideas for your  family photo session and your for your little ones.  And we enjoy the more informal and fun side of family photography … so casual clothes are a must.  You can always  ask us for advice on what to wear and bring a selection if you wish as there is plenty of room to change.

Maybe your little ones have a hobby, something they can’t live without that would add to the family photos –  we have lots of colourful props but you are welcome to bring your own too.

We are very lucky to have some wonderful woodland behind our studio with streams and little bridges which make great outdoor shots, and the woods lead to a huge field full of wild buttercups late spring and early summers … and take advantage of these on a fine, dry day.

We just love lots of bright colours to add to the fun and can create something bespoke for you either with our own ideas or with yours.

Out Door Family Photos

We can offer great out door pics too for your family photos …

And we have our gallery of images for you to see for family photos  … see link below.

Our studio is in an old mill called Woodend Mill in the heart of Saddleworth (near Oldham).   It is literally at the end of a wood … and we use this wood for fabulous out door family photos.

We have a large studio at Shy Violet Photography which is fantastic for a family session,  but in the spring and summer, with warmer dry weather, it’s always fab to get some out door pics too.   Our wood has little streams and bridges and leads to a huge field full of wild buttercups in the spring and early summer.

We can combine a studio shoot with a woodland shoot – weather permitting of course 🙂  And all  children love the adventure of the woods don’t they?

We can offer family photos for you in your own garden too on a nice dry day.  And ‘Dovestones’ Reservoirs are right on our doorstep too – so we really can optimise on the out door family photo session for you.  Call us for more info.

Our packages are based on family sessions at the studio, but if you would like us to come to you, please call or email for a price.

Fun Family Photography

Fun Fun Fun Family Photography

Family Photography –  I first met this lovely family when they came for Aurora’s 1st Birthday cake smash.  They wanted to do a Family Photography shoot to commemorate her little girls’ 2nd birthday but Aurora had developed a ‘fear’ of unknown places and didn’t enjoy going to places she’d not been before.

I have 2 little shih tzu doggies, Martha and Murphy who often come with me to the studio.  I suggested that Aurora might feel more at ease if they were there as she arrived.  We agreed and set a date.  As soon as Aurora arrived, she was totally at ease.   I don’t even think it was the presence of the dogs, as they were shut out of the studio almost immediately.

I always state ‘that I have a very warm and comfortable studio which has been designed to make you feel immediately relaxed with plenty of soft seating’ … I never rush anyone and always let the little one’s spend time getting used to me and the studio before I even get the camera out.   This certainly worked for Aurora!   And we got some fab pics – see a few of these below.

Family Photography can be tricky … so this works for all ages too … a lot of us feel uncomfortable in front of the camera.   I work the sessions so that you can have real fun with your family and therefore you almost forget the camera is there.

I have lots of ideas for Family sessions and what I call ‘Combination’ sessions – so you can combine a family session with a themed session perhaps.

We have 3  great value package offers in our current sale – click here for prices OR call me on 01457 878689 to discuss.  Or you can email me at gaynor@shyvioletphotography.co.uk for more info.

NEW!! The Baby Milk Bath Photo Session

Introducing our New Baby Milk Bath  Photography

Introducing our new Baby Milk Bath photo photoshoot!   This rather unusual but beautiful concept is quite huge in America for both the baby and pregnancy shots.

I was approached by one of my current customers asking if I would do this milk bath photo shoot for her little girl’s second birthday.  I had never heard of it before … but thought it looked just beautiful – so I thought, why not give it a go.

We use real milk and real fresh flowers for every milk bath session.  It’s not the fun ‘Tub & Bubbles’ shoot that we also do, it’s more of a serene, relaxed shoot creating beautiful images – see below.

Our favourite time for the Milk Bath is probably between the ages of 1 to 3 and would be a wonderful way to capture their birthday!  The photo lasts about an hour and we can include various and unusual headbands and hats if required.

All our Milk Bath shoots take place in our lovely studio based in Woodend Mills, Springhead, near Oldham, which is large is size but created to make you feel comfortable and fully heated to make your little one comfortable too.

If you are interested to learn more or would like to book, please contact us either by email to gaynor@shyvioletphotography.co.uk or by phone on 01457 878689.
