Natural & fun location family & children photography in Bristol, Bath & Somerset

Those quick snaps you take on your phone are a fun and easy way to document daily life, and perfect for sharing with friends on Facebook. But they can’t compare to the high quality portraits you’ll receive from a family photo session with a professional photographer like myself.

The special moments when your children are young pass in the blink of an eye, so of course you’ll want to document them growing up. I like to offer personalised, natural, fun photoshoots, which are tailored to your family’s individual taste. 

You can choose a venue or I’m more than happy to recommend a great location that I think would work. There is no “one size fits all” so you walk away having had a completely unique experience and photos of magical moments that you’ll treasure forever.

Natural surroundings 

People often choose locations like a beautiful beach, local park, woodlands or a place that is particularly special to you, which your kids might love to visit. Using ambient light and familiar surroundings provides a relaxed setting for casual photos and offers a great alternative to a studio session. 

I will capture images of your children as they play, explore and interact with the surroundings like picking daisies, hiding behind trees or throwing hay around. The portraits that you’ll receive will be dynamic and full of energy revealing your children’s real charm.

Urban settings 

Of course you don’t have to choose a picturesque ‘flowery’ location if that doesn’t suit you and your family. For example, you might feel more comfortable amidst an urban scene. Graffiti, skate parks, harbours and local landmarks provide stunning and different backdrops for a photoshoot.

Often rich in colour and textures they offer something completely different to a rural setting. I’m open to suggestions and happy to travel further afield for family days out, eg. to the beach, camping, outdoor activity days, or any family friendly events. The possibilities really are endless.

Dog photography

Pets are part of your family too so they’re welcome to join in the fun. The great outdoors is perfect for your furry companions and I know exactly how to get the best from you and your animals. For more pet portraits please check out The Pet Collective website a joint venture with myself & Carly Wong.
