Little Violet Photography is a children and family photographer in Ipswich, photographing families in the surrounding areas as well as the town.

Family portrait sessions take place either in my specially designed home studio, or outdoors in a beautiful woods. Depending on the size of your family and the aims of your session, we can capture traditional or documentary style genuine family photos.

I take the time to get to know your children a little first, before getting my camera out. My many years experience with children, and being a mother myself, means I understand that children need to feel comfortable before their genuine expressions come out. And I am all about the genuine expressions – I never try to force smiles or do ‘cheesy poses’.

Beautiful, authentic family photos

“Very talented photographer. Carly is great with children and made my whole family feel comfortable.”

Children grow up in the blink of an eye, always changing and developing, plus they don’t stay still for long, do they? It can be difficult to capture them on a phone without it turning into a blurry mess. Oh, and all children looking the same way at once?! I know how hard it is!

I’m not just saying this because I am a photographer, but it really is so important to get updated professional photos at least once a year. It is the only way to freeze time. Mobile phone snaps are great for ‘in the moment’ pics, but nothing beats the quality and longevity of a proper professional portrait.

Photos are the only thing that becomes more precious as time passes

All that is required to book your Family photo shoot is your Session Fee of £65. This reserves your space in my diary, and covers the time it takes to capture and hand edit your images to the very highest standard, and to present you with a beautiful gallery to choose from.

You will decide on how many images you want by choosing a Collection, which start from £199. The minimum Collection price is due on the day of your shoot. Upgrading your Collection, adding prints, Wall Art and Albums can be done at your Viewing Appointment.
