There are a number of options available for Portrait sessions, they are explained in full further down the page, its worth reading through the options to confirm its right for you. I can talk with you and explain the options in more detail if you wish.

Together we need to ensure its something that suits your style and that you feel relaxed, helping us get some amazing images.

Some people prefer something a little more informal (especially with young families), in which case you may want to choose a location  or in the comfort of your own home. 

If you would like something a little more traditional / a little more formal then I would recommend something in the studio is the best option for you.

I do not pressure you into buying any products, that is not my style and my print prices are very reasonable so you don't have to spend a fortune. 

On location - Lifestyle portrait sessions

The lifestyle portrait sessions are my most popular sessions, they give us a chance for you to capture unique, relaxed and natural images of your family in the location of your choice.

A lifestyle session allows you to be yourselves in a comfortable location.

The photographs taken will capture those genuine expressions moments and interactions that take place, providing you with a precious record of this special time in your family’s life.

This could mean capturing the tiny, fragile beauty of your newborn baby in your home surroundings, a playful session with toddlers at the local park, or the whole family having fun together at your favourite beach, at a park, at the woods or any other place we can think of.

I have worked with children and families for many years and I really enjoy interacting with them to achieve the very best images.

At your home

These sessions have been particularly useful for families with young or elderly members as there is no travelling involved and they have the comfort of being in their own environment.

You would be surprised by the small amount of space we need to produce some stunning images. 

By coming to your home the sessions can feel much more relaxed and friendly as a posed to a more formal session in a studio. 

I have  a range of portable studio equipment, with backdrops if required, that I can bring to your home.

Studio Portraits

For those that want to go to a studio we can work together to get a range of images in studio conditions, from something a little more posed to some more informal images.

We may be able to plan it so this time gives you the opportunity to bring along a number of costume changes to get the very best from the session.

I can offer a range of lighting techniques giving you a lot of choice, from something bright and lively to something a little more moody.

A number of key decisions on what you opt for will be where you want to display your images i.e. as a large print / product on the wall, some desk top images or all the images in a bound book. 

But studio time is limited, for more information feel free to call me  to talk through the options available.
