More About Us...
We started Wild and Small in March 2015 as two mothers, friends and work colleagues for over 10 years. We wanted to start a business that worked with our new family life and that was true to our view of how we feel family photography should be, which is natural & playful. We cherish our own children's childhood so much and love photos that reflect our relationship with them. This we feel, is also what happens in our sessions with you, we strive to capture something that is so very personal about your child and your relationship with them.
We're always looking for the beauty in life & in people. It's not always as idyllic as it looks on our website, sometimes we have to jump up and down like a frog for an hour (Verity!) and sometimes things come up in shoots that are unexpected, we work with children so it's expected. We're all in this together & we always have so much fun!
We are two professional family portrait photographers who've worked years of hard long days making lots of money for other people. Then we were lucky enough to both have babies and created beautiful little families of our own! Having run off into the sunset (or the chaos) a few years later, we are feeling more inspired than ever before. Nothing makes us happier than to hang out and take beautiful photographs of your children & family.
We really love coming up with ideas & concepts for your photo shoot, then just seeing what happens with some of those ideas. It's fun and and natural and we want you all to be happy :) This lively bit of your time with us is what we live for, but we also enjoy the quietness of editing your images and bringing them to life with our clever editing tricks!
We are gentle, energetic, snugly & of course a little crazy! You have to be with a combined 20+ years as professional photographers working within the fashion and lifestyle industry. A little crazy is what keeps us going!
What Happens Now? This Is How It Normally Goes Down:
We will rock up to your house or simply arrange a place to meet, from a river bank, your favourite park, the beach, or the forest. As long it's a great place to let the kids (and us) run around and go ferrell! We will usually spend up to 2 hours taking your family's photos. And after your session we create a beautiful slide show of your photographs to show you in the comfort of your own home.
Sometimes people book us for a party, a weekend or even a holiday! We document the good, the bad and the crazy! Full and wholesome family days. We love building fires, making dens in the woods, jumping in rivers & building sand-castles. We're pretty much up for any adventure, and to us anything is possible! Whatever your adventure, please contact us to talk about anything you would like us to document :)
Money, Cash, Dinero and Mulahh:
Our pricing has something for everyone, from prints, digital files, wall pieces and beautiful books. Above everything, we really want you to be happy and enjoy your photos for a lifetime. And most of all we want your kids to have an amazing time with us. Please check out our price guides, most of the time parents end up buying all the images as digital files to have complete creative freedom to use them all because they love them so much and they simply can't choose (that's our trick) and to be honest that's how we make our money. But of course how ever little or much you spend is entirely up to you, we have lots to choose from & put our all into everything we do and are very proud of our work.
We use only the best cameras and lenses to capture every detail perfectly, we go on long courses to better ourselves and spend days editing your photographs. Everything takes huge amounts of our time and has taken many, sometimes painful years of gaining experience and a few artistic meltdowns!
If you're thinking you don't fancy being in the photos then that's ok too, but if we promised you, that we will take beautiful photos of you, then maybe you could trust us enough to be in some of the shots? We have some sneaky tricks, no one wants to feel awkward, unless you are talking teenagers! Well then.. 'Whatevaaa'!! ;)
So please call us for a chat or email us for our availability and we can sort everything out for you! From ideas of clothing for your session to where to meet.
So... Here's to really being present and to how truly beautiful our kids really are :)
Love, Verity and Shikha x x
