family and portrait photography

family photographNatural Family and Portrait Photography
any people now prefer an informal approach to family photography rather than more formal poses. When doing this kind of photography I aim to blend in, and after a while people stop reacting to the camera so much and carry on as if I wasn't there.
The resulting photographs are a
great record of your family having fun and being together.

I spend up to an hour with your family, rather than rush it, and go out into the garden, or to the local park or woods if possible.
If photographing children in a public place, please be aware that I am unable to include other people’s children without a parent’s permission. For indoor photography I make as much use as possible of the natural light available in a room, as well as some portable studio equipment.

All you need to do is turn up in comfortable clothes and with some fun things to do together.

If you prefer, I can come to your home with my portable studio and make the photographs there.

Family Photography Packages
This kind of 'reportage' photography does produce more images than the traditional portrait session, so to keep it affordable I usually supply the photographs on a CD, fully processed and ready to print. This leaves you free to print as many as you like, whatever size you like, and to email them to friends and family.
I can also supply prints as well if you prefer, individually prepared by me and printed in a top quality lab.

My family photography package is just a starting point - you can customise it as much as you like.

Portrait Photography
I can also make more traditional portraits, in your home, office or on location. Please contact me with your requirements for a quote.

Family Occasions and Events
As well as families with children, I also take a similar approach to photographing adults, parties, anniversaries and weddings; any kind of social event where people mix and interact. Please see the Special Occasions and Weddings pages, and contact me with the details for a quote.
