Family & children's portraits 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.
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.
The great outdoors
Not so keen of the idea of a studio shoot? Then a location session might be for you. The South West offers a wealth of locations that are perfect for creating memorable family and children's portraits. I'm always happy to choose a great location for your photoshoot but I typically encourage clients to choose a setting for their photos which fits with their families interests and personalities.
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.
The four seasons all have a wide range of colours, backdrops and themes enabling me to provide varied location shoots all year round. Springtime provides colourful daffodils, summer gives us shorts, t-shirts and sunshine, autumn offers beautiful warm colours in the trees, leaves paving the ground and winter shots look so cosy wrapped up warm in big coats, hats and scarfs.
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.
