Family Portraits For All Occasions

There's nothing like having a beautiful photograph of your family.  What to wear is the hardest thing you'll need to consider.  A studio portrait is a fun occasion, a much more relaxed experience than most expect.  It needn't be a special occasion but if you'd like a large family gathering your photographer could meet you somewhere more personal to you, on location.  If you have a plan of your portrait or need to find out how we can make the most of your family portrait please give us a call, we've got loads of ideas and we can make it so easy for you.

Pregnancy is such an exciting time.  Feeling your bump grow and as time developes beginning to feel the sensation of baby making contact with you.

Consider clothing carefully.

  • Plain clothing always works best.
  • Large motives, vivid patterns, stripes and checks are best avoided as they are a distraction.
  • Pastel shades work very well for babies.
  • For more informal shots we often pose you on the floor, sometimes with bare feet. Nail varnish for the ladies or plain socks for the men is recommended.
  • Because the feet of babies are cute we usually remove their socks.

Our studio is on the first floor, accessed by a wide stairway. Buggies should be left at the foot of the stairs.
