The Family Photo Experience

Family photo sessions are a fun and relaxing experience. I shoot outdoors from from April to October when the weather is warmer.  Indoor sessions can be done all year round. We go to a place of your choice like a forest, a beach, a mountain trail, an open field or in the comfort of your home.

I tend to get lots of candid spontaneous shots of families interacting and simply enjoying yourselves, capturing phots that reflect you as a family.

I offer 2 types of family photography. First is the Portrait Session where I focus on traditional portraits of your family, both in groups and as individuals.  The second is the Lifestyle Family Photo Session where things are more candid and raw. We spend a bit more time together capturing family moments, kids enjoying themselves and of course, we get a few posed portraits too.

The importance of getting a professional photographer to take your family photos.

Do you want to spend some time with your family? Then be sure to take the time to get a professional photographer. A professional will capture your memories in a way that is more likely than any other method, and they are worth every penny.

Family photos are a lot like the decorations for your home. You want to choose things that reflect you and your family’s personality.

You don’t want to have a picture with yellow, orange, or green trees in them. That just doesn’t make any sense. It is the same with pictures of our families. We want pictures that represent us. This means finding a photographer whose style matches your own to ensure this happens. Having a professional family photographer take your family photos is the best way to make sure this happens.

If you just pick a friend or another member of your family to take the pictures, chances are they won’t look as good because they aren’t professional photographers. A professional photographer can give you the best photo possible, one that is crisp and clear with just the right lighting. They also are trained in taking good family photos so they know how to position everyone as well as take pictures that make you all look your best.

Telling Your Story

Professional photographers will take the time to make sure everything looks perfect before snapping the picture.

They will also take pictures that tell a story about you and your family.

You want photos where everyone’s eyes are open, the lighting is just right, and the colours are bright. A professional photographer can provide all of this for you so your family photos turn out exactly how you want them to.

A photographer will make sure there are no photos that are out of focus or blurry, ensuring you get only high quality photos in your online gallery to print and hang on your walls or share with friends and family on social media.

Potrait Photography Terms and Conditions (Contract between Client and Photographer)

This is an agreement between you (hereafter referred to as “Client”) and Athlone Photography (hereafter “Photographer” or “the Photographer”).

1. Scope of Work

This contract is for services and products related to a photography shoot (hereafter “shoot” or “the shoot”) to take place at the following time and location.

Photographer and client are to arrive for the shoot at the date and time agreed upon during the online booking.

The Photographer agrees to provide services and products as chosen by Client and as  described during the time of booking on athlonephotography.ie.

Photographer will perform basic post-processing/digital image editing services on the photos taken during the shoot. 

2. Fees

In consideration of the photography services provided by the Photographer, the client agrees to pay the sum stated during the booking process. Client agrees to pay the photographer an initial payment of €50.00 (Fifty Euros) at time of making the booking. The initial payment reserves the photographer’s time and is not a retainer or deposit. The client agrees that the initial payment is non-refundable if the client cancels the shoot within 48 hours (2 days) of the shoot time and date.

The balance of payment for photography services must be paid in full on or before the day and time of the shoot as detailed in Section 1: Scope of Work.

3. Work Product

Photographer will deliver proofs of photos to the client via an online gallery no later than seven days (7 days) after the date of the shoot. The client agrees that the proofs are the exclusive property of the Photographer and the client has no right to these photos except for a license to review them, but not store the proofs.

4. Licensing and Copyright

All photos delivered to the client, physical or digital, are licensed to the client for personal use only. Client agrees that all photos remain the copyright of the Photographer. Client agrees that they will not use any of the delivered photos for commercial use without a written agreement and a purchase of a commercial usage license from the Photographer. Client understands that the Photographer can use the photos from the shoot for any means including advertising, promotion, marketing, portfolio online and offline. 

5. Exclusive Photographer

Client agrees and understands that no other party other than the Photographer may take pictures of any poses, lighting situations or setups made by the photographer. This slows down the photographer’s work and violates the photographers right to take pictures of the event or gathering. Client agrees to take responsibility for insisting that no person(s) get in the way of the Photographer or take pictures in these situations.

6. Model Release

Client grants permission to the Photographer and it’s assigned, licensees, and sub-licensees, permission to use clients image(s) or likeness in any and all forms of media for commercial purposes, advertising, trade, personal use, or any and all other uses. Therefore, the Photographer may use clients likeness and image(s) on the Photographer’s website or other advertising.
