Portraits

My portrait photography shoots for families, couples and individuals are affordable, with low sitting fees and a wide range of fabulous print and display options at realistic prices. I cover Bristol, Bath and surrounds.

What happens at a home family portrait shoot?

Option 1. An on-site mini portrait studio

A studio-style portrait can be taken in your own home!

I can visit your home, set up a fantasic ‘mini-studio’ using the same or better lighting as used in professional photographic studios and the well-known chains. For full length portraits we will need a space at least around 12′ x 13′, not including any furniture. Within two weeks we upload the best unedited images to a website where you can choose your favourites for order. Special artistic treatments can be applied upon request, from high contrast black and white to exciting contemporary treatments. Images chosen will receive basic retouching for minor blemishes and to make the background clean.

Option 2. The location shoot

Although I love making you feel special with wonderful studio lighting, some of the best light of all is natural. I can take your photographs at a local location from your back garden to the countryside or edgier urban locations. Perhaps you have a location in mind or we can suggest some in the Bristol area? I have completed fun shoots as places like the beach at Clevedon and Weston Super Mare, parks, industrial areas and clients’ back gardens. Natural light portraits on location offer something very different to the studio experience.

Price:
Whichever option you choose, the shoot costs just £49.99 and I will take as many photographs as needed are taken. They generally last 1-2 hours. Included in the price is one FREE 10″x8″ or 12”X8”inch photograph.

We will print any of the photographs taken during the shoot in the sizes below.
