Arnprior Pumpkins Photoshoot
After the sell out success of the mini family sessions at Arnprior Pumpkins in 2020, I am delighted to say that I will be offering the same mini Arnprior Pumpkins photoshoot sessions on the patch for 2021.
I love images that tell stories, who people are and what they do together. I am very excited to have the opportunity to offer them again at Arnprior while you pumpkin pick.
The Mini Shoot
Let me take the pressure off and take some professional photographs for you, recording your brilliant Autumnal day out.
Each mini shoot will last 15 minutes where I will follow you at a safe distance during your time at Arnprior.
You can pick your pumpkins on the patch, be digging up potatoes, getting some churros or sitting in the polly tunnels. You decide what part of your Arnprior visit you want to have photographed and I will be there to capture what you are doing and get some fun, relaxed photographs of you all enjoying a day out together.
Booking is open now below
Each 15 minute session must be prebooked prior to your visit.
You must book your session with me in addition to booking your entry to the pumpkins with Arnprior. I can only accept bookings for the same time slot as your pumpkin patch ticket.
The mini shoots cost £50 and this includes your choice of 5 high resolution digital images.
After the session you will be emailed a private online gallery where you can choose a selection of 5 high resolution digital images to download. Your gallery will contain around 20 images to choose from.
There is the opportunity to purchase additional digital images from the online store. Individual images are £10 and all of the images your gallery can be purchased for an additional £60.
For ideas and inspiration check out my featured sessions from last year.

Q. How much are sessions?
A. They are £50 for 15 minutes and include 5 high resolution digital images.
Q. Can I purchase additional images?
A. Yes they are £10 each for the high resolution images or you can upgrade and have all of the images in your gallery for an additional £60. The featured galleries above have examples of what people received.
Q. Where can we go on the patch for photos?
A. I recommend choosing your favourite place. I can suggest good locations for the weather and light. It is likely that you will be able to do two locations in the time frame. For example the pumpkins and the signs or the potatoes and the signs. Have a look at my featured galleries to see where families went on the patch.
Q. What should we wear?
A. The patch is very muddy especially when it has been raining. I would always recommend wellies and cosy clothing and waterproofs if it is raining. Other than that wear something you feel great in.
Q. Can babies be part of the shoot?
A. Yes absolutely! I love photographing babies and had several on the patch last year.
Q. Can our extended family or friends join us, we’d like the Grandparents there too?
A. Yes of course. This would be on condition that there are no changes to the Scottish Government’s guidance on households meeting, however as it currently stands it is absolutely possible.
Q. If it’s raining do we still go ahead?
A. Yes. Some of my favourite shoots last year were in the pouring rain. We also had access to the polly tunnels where we could do photographs when if was really bad.
Q. Can I book a double time slot to do more locations or extra people?
A. Yes, that would be great! Just add two sessions to your cart. If there aren’t two together you can still book two and I can meet you at a different part on the patch for your different locations.
Q. Can i see examples of galleries from last years mini shoots?
A. Yes there are 6 featured sessions in the gallery above.
Q. Will you be there at every pumpkin session?
A. I am delighted that the shoots have been so popular but they have now grown to a size where I need to have someone else work with me. I will be at most of the sessions but I will be working with an amazing associate photographer who will be working for Mack Photo. Their confirmed dates are –
Monday 18th October
Saturday 23rd October – 12.30 – 2.30 & 3.30 – 5.30
(I will be doing the 9.30 – 11.30 session)
Wednesday 27th October
If there is enough interest there we may have days where there are two of us on the patch to cater for more families wishing to have a session.
Q. If I have to isolate what should I do?
A. Please let me know if that happens as soon as possible and I will refund your booking. Please also do not attend if you are feeling unwell or have any symptoms of Covid 19. Any cancelled bookings will be available for someone else to book.
Q. What happens if I am late?
A. I kindly ask that you be at the meeting point 5 minutes before your booked time. If you are running late on approach to the patch, then please call me as soon as possible as I may be able to rearrange the shoots for that session. I do allow a half hour window for each shoot, however beyond 10 minutes late I cannot guarantee your shoot and the shoot fee would be non refundable.
Q. Why have prices changed from last year?
A. My costs to be able to run the mini sessions have increased since 2020 from the online booking system, the galleries that deliver your images and handle payments have all unfortunately increased too which is why there is difference.
