Happy Families!

  • Do you remember that old card game called Happy Families? It is played with a set of picture cards, featuring fictional families of four, usually based on occupation types such as butcher, baker, greengrocer etc. The object of the game is to collect complete families by swapping cards with other players, and the first player to organise all their cards into complete families wins.

    The families of four in the Happy Families game consist of a mother and father and two children. But the happy families of the 21st century are very different from what they were when the card game was invented in the 1850’s. Families today come in all shapes and sizes! They are also often extended in various ways due to all kinds of reasons and circumstances.

    That’s why we at Venture have all kinds of different photographic packages to suit different families and different circumstances. If you want to have a family portrait done then there is bound to be a package that will be ideal for you whatever your family set up.

    All of our packages include the following:

    • A fun and exciting photoshoot experience, capturing the story of who you are and creating lasting memories of you and your family to treasure forever
    • Creative image preparation by your highly skilled photographer
    • Your personal viewing in the cinematic surroundings of our digital theatre which brings your story to life
    • our choice of photograph, beautifully framed

    Midi Family Photography Experience

    This experience is currently at half price which makes it amazing value! It includes a personalised photo shoot for all the members of your family – both individually and together as a group. Our photographers will spend time with each member of your family before the shoot to become familiar with their personalities and individual traits and ensure that these are reflected in the photographs. As part of the deal you will also take away your favourite image hand-framed in a stunning Midi sized Gallery, Vue or Metro frame (24” x 24” or 31” x 24” or 31” x 15”) valued at £700.

    Gold Family Photography Experience

    The Gold family photography experience will result in family portraits you will love! It will perfectly tell the story of your family and we actively encourage you to bring along props that represent your passions and hobbies to really bring to life who you are. We will then photograph you separately and together for an experience and result that you will treasure for years to come. The experience includes your choice of a family portrait in a handmade Mini wall art frame in Gallery, Vue or Metro, (19” x 15” or 15” x 15”) valued at £370.

    The Silver Family Photography Experience and Bronze Family Photography Experience are both similar to the Gold, the difference being that the Silver experience includes as your 10” x 8” framed gift worth £165 and the Bronze includes a 7” x 5” framed gift worth £95.
