Winter has a way of casting a spell over nature – which is impossible to ignore. That feeling you experience when hearing frosted grass crunch underfoot, the white glow cast upon a spiderweb as frozen morning dew transforms it into a giant snowflake, or the stillness and silence which emanates from a snow topped vista; it has a way of bringing back memories of winters past and besides the mild frostbite encroaching on your toes and nose, it’s slightly magical!
Such visions have been captured by artists, photographers and designers forever! These images populate our Christmas cards, our computer desktops and even family photos.
It’s these images which spurred the requests for the In The Frame Winter Portraits! Naturally, the British weather can’t be relied upon for much more than presenting the unexpected! But between the honed photography skills of In The Frame, and benefits modern photo retouching, starting with a simple winter backdrop, we can bring the magic!
No matter the weather on the day of our shoot, by the time we’re finished editing you’ll see a wonderful winter scene.
These packages are £149 and include a printed 10×8 print plus 3 digital images (you’re welcome to purchase more of course). Much like our lifestyle shoots, your family will be joined by Roisin of In The Frame, for a winter walk in the location of your choice (or we can offer a few places if needed). We usually suggest explaining it this way to children too, a friend joining the family for a hours walk or trip to the woods/park, and then Roisin captures the natural magic and fun of family interactions. This avoids any pressure of children feeling like they need to be posed, or fixing forced grins to their faces in a bid to get the photos “right”.
We then take these images and edit them to postcard perfect pictures! Less is always more, so you won’t find we suddenly try and turn Gadebridge park into an Alaskan tundra, there won’t be an igloo suddenly replacing the war memorial in Boxmoor! We’ll add a frost, a dusting of snow and a winter glow! With your family wrapped up warm and having fun, the magic will easily come out.
These Christmas card calibre photos are wonderful family pics and memories to treasure. Use the form below to book your shoot!
