We feel privileged to have photographed families in Nottingham for over a decade. We’ve shared their excitement as new babies arrived, celebrated wedding anniversaries with four generations together and shed a tear as children left for university. With every session we want to capture a moment in your family’s history with portraits that show your relationships and personalities. What will your family portrait say?
How many members of the family can you accommodate in the studio?
You can include the whole extended family of up to 20 people; three and four generation portrait sessions are our speciality.
What’s the best age to book a photoshoot with the children?
This is a very difficult question as no two families are the same. In truth every stage is different, but give us a call if you’d like our advice on what age would be best for the kind of portraits you have in mind.
Can we bring along the family dog?
Many families have four-legged members and well behaved dogs are very welcome in the studio. It’s best to give them a long walk before you come so they’re more relaxed and don’t forget to bring whatever you use to train them e.g. clickers or treats.
What should we wear?
It’s best to set a dress code and colour coordinate your outfits to ensure you look great together in every photo and please avoid text, images and logos. As a rule of thumb it’s best to choose simple, timeless clothing so that your portraits stand the test of time.
Do I need to book an appointment?
Yes, family sessions are by appointment only and we take a £50 refundable deposit for every shoot to guarantee your booking.
Can I book a photoshoot for my someone else?
Family photography is a very personal service, so every family must book their own session. However, you can purchase a gift voucher for them to use from our online shop.
Do you airbrush the photos?
We use flattering lighting and poses to make sure that everyone looks and feel great in your portraits. However, we can soften blemishes and remove bruises etc if requested.
How do I order my photos?
You’ll be able to view and order your images straight after your photoshoot while the whole family is with us. In your private viewing we’ll show you all the portraits on our HD projector and your consultant will guide you through the options and help you design your personal portrait collection.
How can I present my photos?
We offer a hand-picked collection of wall art and bespoke albums to choose from. Most families choose their favourite images to hang on the wall as a constant reminder of their loved ones or a selection of all the individual and group portraits bound into a book as a very special family heirloom.
When will I receive my finished order?
Everything will be ready for collection within 6 weeks of ordering. However, if you’re working to a deadline for a birthday or anniversary then we’ll do all we can to expedite your order.
