Portraiture is all about capturing the personality and mood of the subject, or the relationships between subjects, where the face is predominant. A portrait will always give happy memories of how everyone looked and a record of everyone together. My aim is to create as informal and relaxing an atmosphere within which to capture these images.

With the popularity of camera phones, families are photographed more frequently than ever, however these images are often low resolution and rarely of a quality nearing something you'd want to put on display on a canvas within the family home or frame and give as a gift to grandparents.

When I do family photography I give the families the option of me visiting the family home to conduct the photo-shoot, or for me to carry out the shoot in a public space (such as a park, woodland or beach). Often these shoots last between 1-2 hours and include a mix of portraits, family group shots and some candid moments of all the family together.

Before taking the shoot I'll chat with the family to get a feel for the photos they want from the shoot, and as the shoot progresses I show family members the images I've taken and check that what I'm delivering is what they are after.

There are two packages I offer families:

Package 1 (£50):

  • 1-2 hour photo-shoot (either in-home or on location)
  • all the final images watermarked and presented on a DVD (for you to keep)
  • 4 digital images of your choice, allowing prints in any size and format

Package 2 (£75):

  • 1-2 hour photo-shoot (either in-home or on location)
  • all the final images watermarked and presented on a DVD (for you to keep)
  • 26 page high quality 21cm square photobook of all the images
  • 2 digital images of your choice, allowing prints in any size and format

Additionally, families can buy individual images either digitally or as prints, as well as order additional copies of the DVD and album; there is also the option to purchase a licence to print all the images from the images from the photo-shoot at a heavily discounted rate. 

Bespoke packages, tailored to individual family needs can also be given, please get in touch a for quote.
