We hope that you will be pleasantly surprised at how easy it can be – perhaps even fun. We specialise in casual, easy-going portraits that make few demands on the family.
Of course, we realise that these days with family members away studying or living and working abroad, finding time is not always easy. We try to fit in with these difficulties.
We will produce a portfolio of portraits (size 5 x 4 inches, larger by arrangement) in a style or series of styles that seem appropriate after discussions together. We are happy to work in black and white or colour. We have lots of creative ideas – indeed we are aware that many people are interested in pictures that owe no allegiance to some of the stuffy conventions of the past.
A family portrait is an ideal time to photograph individuals or sub groups within the family. We can pick up on particular pursuits (musical or sporting, perhaps) and make the session quite comprehensive. As you can see, family pets are positively encouraged, There is not a set number of photographs but it usually exceeds 25 of which any six printed in the preview album are included in our fee.
Almost all of the above applies to location portraiture. It could be at home, an hotel or a favourite haunt such as a beach etc. The portfolio print size is automatically increased to 8x6 inches to make the most of the environment.
The location can be anywhere in the UK – indeed the world – but may incur an additional traveling and time charge.
In all cases the results of our work will be presented in a portfolio of original finished prints to be taken home to choose at leisure.
Pressure of any kind is not our style.
