Fun and relaxed family photoshoots, creating memories to treasure for years to come
Ready to enquire about your outdoor photoshoot?
What better keepsake for the future than a fun and relaxed family photoshoot in comfortable and natural outdoor surroundings? A family photoshoot gives you some quality time together whilst knowing that each moment is being captured discreetly, showing everyone in an informal, carefree way.
You can expect a very relaxed and informal session where we will work together to produce a series of natural-looking images of you and your family or friends. Whilst I suggest ideas of images and set you and your family into comfortable semi-poses, I will also shoot images as they happen and especially candid images that you probably won't even know have been taken!
Your photoshoot will likely take between one and on-and-a-half hours but if it takes longer - no problem! Outdoor Studio sessions generally work well with up to six people. That way, no one is left standing around for very long waiting to get involved. If you have little ones or ones with short attention spans, having someone else around that can provide a source of entertainment can be useful.
Your photoshoot can take place pretty much anywhere; however experience suggests that a large open space, such as a park or large garden, is a good option. If you're in the Louth, Lincolnshire area; Hubbard's Hills provides so many possibilities for fun, natural photo sessions.
It's surprising how often people say something like, "I don't like having my picture taken!" There's nothing to worry about, we've all been self-conscious in front of a camera at some point. Just remember one thing: you're there to have a fun and relaxed time with your family or friends and those are the natural shots that we're looking to achieve. There's definitely no need to say, 'Cheese!'

"We booked Darren after seeing some of his work from our nephew's Christening. We wanted a family photoshoot for a little while, with our little ones being so young. We had a lovely time. We are both quiet people and felt a little nervous about having our pictures taken. He made us feel relaxed and as though we were just having a family walk in the park. We have two little ones two and under and he was very patient with them. A very friendly person to work with. Thank you very much. They are amazing! Exactly what we were looking for! We would highly recommend and will book again in the future."

"I have known Darren for many years so would class him as a friend. However, on the day of our shoot he was very professional. He made us feel very relaxed and we had lots of laughs. The finished product was amazing as none of us are particularly photogenic! We made suggestions to him about backgrounds and Darren was open to our ideas. He made the whole session relaxing and entertaining. I would recommend Darren as he is easygoing and a 'thoroughly nice chap'".
"My family had a shoot for a surprise for my 50th birthday and they are amazing. Would highly recommend to anyone to have a photoshoot. Thank you so much."
"I bought a voucher for my dad for Father's Day and we spent a fantastic evening at Hubbard's Hills having the photographs taken. From start to finish, we had a wonderful couple of hours as a family, with Darren putting everyone at ease. His friendly and professional manner resulted in some amazing family photographs (even for those of us who dislike having our photograph taken!) I would whole-heartedly recommend Darren to anyone looking to commemorate a special occasion."
"What a wonderful experience it was to have our daughter's Quinceanera photographs taken by Darren. We were visiting family in Louth, from the United States, and Darren was very flexible in helping us figure out a time that would work for all of us. He did an outdoor shoot at Hubbard's Hills and not only did my daughter look amazing in the pictures but the backdrops he chose were breathtaking! He is very good at what he does and has a very artistic eye. His friendly demeanor is also helpful to get people feeling at ease very quickly and we all felt very comfortable with him. So much so, that we have already decided to use Darren for our other daughter's graduation photos - during our visit next year! Darren is truly brilliant and our family cannot recommend him enough! Thank you so much, Darren.

"From our first steps into married life to our little boy's first steps (and everything in between!), Darren has captured every special moment for us and never fails to deliver. Thank you for the latest photos, Darren. As always, they are perfect. Highly recommended."
Mark and Jacqueline
"Wow! You have been such a pleasure to work with again and we really enjoyed our Outdoor Studio shoot. You and your photos are so beyond expectations. I love that you don't just take pictures, you capture moments (the ones we don't know you have taken). You are so incredibly talented and we were so lucky to have found you."
Natalie and Alan
"Darren was great on our family Outdoor Studio shoot, making us feel very relaxed and was fantastic with the children! It was lovely spending time in natural surroundings and coming away with some fantastic family photos which we will be able to look back on in years to come. Would definitely recommend to others - very talented photographer!"
Andrea and David
"It wasn't the easiest day to be taking photos of our two-and-a-half year-old grandson, as it turned out, and we did have to change plans just a little. But unfazed by it all, Darren found a way to let what happens happen. The end results left us spoilt for choice. Frankly almost any photo he took was the right one. The outcome was better than we could have imagined."
Judith and Mike
"Thank you so much Darren! We were really nervous about having our pictures taken but you made it so fun and low pressure that we had a fantastic time, as well as getting some wonderful pictures. Mum absolutely loved them! As well, thank you again for humoring such requests as, 'Can we have a spy one?"
Sophie and Matthew
"I would just like to thank you for the fantastic service that we received from beginning to end with our recent photoshoot at Hubbard's Hills. Nothing was too much trouble and the pictures were delivered promptly at the end."
Paula and Paul
"I would thoroughly recommend Darren for a photoshoot. He put me and my friend completely at ease and we felt comfortable and happy throughout the shoot. Lots of laughs along the way and we enjoyed experimenting with various natural settings in the countryside. Couldn't fault it. Thank you, Darren."
"Had a great time having these photos taken, many thanks for putting us both at ease and the professional way that the photoshoot was done."
"If any of my friends are looking for a photographer, I would definitely recommend Darren. His photoshoots are amazing - you don't even realise he has taken the photos. We have some very special photos to look back on. Thank you, Darren."
