Family Portraiture

Here at The Old Fire Station Studio, the main aim is to make your session as fun and enjoyable and create fantastic portraits to treasure in the years to come.

You will see from the selections here that we cater for a variety of different shoots, and the approach is virtually the same in all instances. A lot of people are not comfortable in front of the camera, and this is usually a mixture of confidence or having had some really bad pictures taken before! You can be assured that you will be made to feel at ease, to relax and be yourself.

When you make your booking, we will discuss the shoot, who will be involved, what we can do and more importantly, what you are looking to come away with. You will need to consider your choice in clothing. Bright bold colours are lively and make the photographs more eye catching, where a dull colour may take away impact. The latest fashion may well look good now, but in 6 months, will you be asking "Why did I wear that?". Most of our shoots are relaxed and as such, casual clothing is best. Children are best dressed in something that they are comfortable in.

We can accommodate larger family gatherings. There is no extra charge if more families or grandparents are included, but we do need to know in advance so we can allocate a little more time. Along with the larger family group involving everybody, you may want to have separate family groups or grandchildren with grandparents.

Above all else, we want you to enjoy your portrait experience with us, and not only the portraits that you will treasure. The most important thing is that they enjoy the experience as this will in turn, provide you with lovely photographs.
