Modern Family Portrait Photography in Sunderland

A family portrait session does not have to be a stiff, posed, traditional portrait with everyone in their Sunday best and looking like the Addams Family.

Now it is less formal, more candid, and most importantly more fun! I want to make your session an enjoyable experience and incorporate activities that the kids will enjoy and also involve the family pet.

Your clothing should be smart but comfortable and complement each other without contrasting or clashing. Mainly neutrals but with a pop of colour gives me a good range of backgrounds to put you in while still bringing something of your own style and personality to your outfits.

We are not confined to a studio, which means can choose your own location, whether at home or a rural or urban outdoor location that has a special meaning for your family.  These are things that can be discussed during my planning process.

During your session I will get photographs not just of the whole family, but of smaller groupings: the children in groups or individually, the children with their grandparents or the family pet, Mum and Dad together, Mum and Dad with individual children and Mum and Dad with the pet!

Should you have your own ideas for groupings or poses I will be more than happy to incorporate them into your session. This is your session and I want it to be unique to you.

A family portrait session is the ideal way to commemorate a special event like a birthday or anniversary, or even a family get-together that may not happen ever again.

A range of framed wall art, canvases, acrylics, and photobooks are available, as well as smaller prints and cards which make great gifts. You can find information on pricing and contact on this page.
