Family photography Bristol
My family photography style is just like my style for weddings – natural, fun and colourful.
Being a dad myself I know how quickly little ones grow up and so family photos are priceless. I’ve had several family shoots myself and they mean the world to me. My photos are printed out large and hung on the walls.
It’s the facial facial expressions and the unique characteristics that make them them. So I’ve found the best way to take photos is to let the little ones roam free outside where they can explore and have fun. Whether it’s splashing in muddy puddles, kicking a ball or riding bikes the more fun they have the better.
No fake smiles or unnatural poses, I promise.
I photograph families far and wide but living in Bristol we have plenty of great locations. The number one spot is Ashton Court. With woods, hills, horizons, deer, gardens and a colourful mansion house gardens there is PLENTY of variety.
Westonbirt arboretum is also popular, especially in autumn. Amazing pathways, logs to climb and colourful trees. So many options and I love going back.
But, it doesn’t have to be a forest, mountain or beach. Your own homes can make great backdrops. Wherever your family feels relaxed will work well and be more personal too. Wherever your happy place is we can go there. My family photography is less about the background and more about natural reactions.
The photos grow more special as the years go on and also make good gifts to other family members.
Every family is different
We can have as many chats as you like about your plans before the shoot.
