Portrait Photography

We really enjoy taking portraits and are passionate about creating photographs that you can cherish and look back on in years to come. We offer family, couples or engagement and individual portraits. As a husband and wife team, we work together to ensure a variety of shots are accomplished on the day, which will give you a range of photographs to choose from.

With all of our portrait photography we try to make the sessions as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. If you feel relaxed and are having fun, we are much more likely to capture a true reflection of your family dynamic or individual personalities. We will guide you through the experience, providing lots of ideas and direction if needed. We also understand that best photos are achieved when you feel comfortable in your environment and therefore offer both indoor and outdoor locations. We offer sessions in our home photography studio, equipped with professional lighting and in a variety of carefully chosen outdoor locations.

We pride ourselves on being a flexible team and working with you to produce unique images that are meaningful to you. For this reason we allow between 2-3 hours for a portrait session, which facilitates a natural and unrushed progression through the shoot.

Our portrait photography sessions are priced at £50.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to know about the family shoot?

This shoot can be as small or as big as you would like. It can be just you and your children or why not bring aunties, uncles and the grandparents along as well? Prior to the portrait session we will discuss what you would like to achieve from the shoot and decide upon a location.

Depending on the location, it is always a good idea to bring a few outfits with you as we can help you pick out what will work best and also provides some variety in the images. If you have young children we would always recommend bringing some toys or books along that they enjoy and can play with. We love capturing children doing what they do best – having fun!

What do I need to know about a couple or engagement shoot?

Why not celebrate your relationship or new engagement with a portrait session that will capture how you feel about each other? These photos can be for you to frame around your home, on save the date invites or can even be displayed on your wedding day.

This session is all about capturing your connection with each other. We would therefore recommend going for an informal and relaxed walk, where you can be yourselves. We will work to capture those effortless and natural loving expressions you share with each other, surrounded by beautiful scenery. We are happy to suggest a variety of locations or we can meet at somewhere special to you both.

Can I have a combined indoor and outdoor portrait shoot?

Portrait sessions can often work well with a combined indoor and outside shoot. We would normally start in our home photography studio and then part way through the session head outside for a local walk. This often gives you the best of both worlds and gives you a wider variety of shots.

If this is something you would like then please discuss this with us at time of booking. Obviously it will be weather dependent!

What about hair and makeup?

We recommend that women wear natural looking makeup and have your hair as you prefer. It's worth having a brush with you to tidy up any stray hairs during the session. Why not consider treating yourself to having your hair and makeup done professionally before the shoot?

Can I have black and white photographs?

We shoot in full colour using professional Canon equipment but can process each shot to black and white during editing. We take care to balance the tones in each image for best results and will include black and white versions of photographs for free. You can then decide during your viewing session which you prefer to order.

How do we book?

To make a booking please first contact us by email or phone to check our availability. We can discuss any questions you may have before making the booking.

When do we pay?

To confirm your booking we need full payment of the session fee to reserve the date. This is unfortunately not refundable but as long as we have 48 hours notice we will always endeavour to reschedule as long as we have availability.
