Family is EVERYTHING!!

If over this year we have learnt anything it is that family is EVERYTHING! We are missing being able to spend time with extended family and friends but we are loving spending time with our spouse and kids without distractions like work, rushing from one place to the other and actually slowing down. We have been going out on walks together, riding bikes together, home schooling, taking the time to talk to each other, play games together, but most of all bonding!

Family session can be done in my Long Eaton Studio or out on Location. Location sessions are great fun with kids that don’t like to sit still or for seasonal images I mostly use locations in Sawley, Draycott and Breaston plus a few others. We are so lucky to have woodlands, riverbanks, canals, fields and lakes on our doorsteps all of which a perfect for your family exercise and beautiful photos.

Why Now?

Why update your photos now? Why not wait till this is all over and life goes back to normal? My answer to this is family life changes and evolves so quickly putting off having photos until the perfect time usually mean that it never gets done as there is no perfect time only right now! At the minute the kids are off school (not all kids I know but most are), not everyone is at work so you have the TIME NOW! But more of a reason for me is my mum is missing her grandkids so I did some beautiful photos of the kids last week and I have had them printed for her to have and look at everyday. She cried when she saw the photos they are that important to her and I am sending them to my Mother in law too as she misses us all too. Lets stop thinking of the reasons why not to do something and think of the joy, fun and amazing reasons to do this now.



My service is bespoke to all my clients I have props we can use (all are washed and steam cleaned between use) for your family to get the most out of the session. I will call you before your session to discuss your clothing choices, talk about your family, your kids likes and dislikes. We will talk through what you would like to do with the photos afterwards if there is a space on your wall just waiting for your family portrait or presents you want to send and finally decide on a location and date

Stunning products and wall art

When booking your photography session although the experience is a major part of why and who you book to take your photographs the main reason for having your images taken is to have them displayed beautifully to look at daily on your walls or share as a family in a keepsake album that your children can grow up looking through.

Children respond well to seeing images of themselves on the wall and at Kay Oliver Photography we use the highest quality products available to make sure your images are going to be displayed in the best way possible.

We have an exciting range of Wall Art product options available to you.
