Why book a Bristol family photographer?

When you’re choosing your Bristol family photographer, its important you choose one that’s right for you and your family. Consider the style of photography you like the most.  Whether studio or lifestyle, indoor or outdoor, I will capture the bond that you all share in a way that’s unique and personal to you.

Types of family photographer in Bristol

If you’re looking to have photographs taken of your family, the first place you’ll often think of heading is to a photography studio. But another option is to book an independent Bristol family photographer.

Choosing an independent photographer gives you the opportunity to create photographs in a way that captures the spirit and character of your family, rather than photographs that are simply in the style of the studio you choose. They’ll be able to spend time with you before the shoot, paying close attention to the things that are important to you. Together you can plan how to best capture what makes your family special, creating images that you’ll treasure for a lifetime.

By choosing a Bristol family photographer, you’ll also avoid the hard sell All prices are on the website so you know before how much you can expect to pay for your photographs and products or wall art.

Family Photo shoots in your own home

One of the main benefits of taking the camera out of the studio and into your home is that you’ll naturally feel more relaxed, allowing your photographer to capture the unique personality of your family in the place where you all feel most comfortable.

For children especially, being at home can make them feel more at ease. Being in a place where they feel safe, rather than a studio where they’ve never been before, can help them open up, allowing the photographer to capture their true personalities, rather than simply poses, within the photographs.

Even if your home has limited room, your Bristol family photographer will be able to spend time with you beforehand, getting to know the space and finding ways to capture it in its best light. They’ll also be able to incorporate the things that make your house a home for your family into your images, making them distinctly personal.

Outdoor Family Photo shoots

Bristol is a beautiful city with a variety of locations that are perfect for an outdoor family photoshoot; from the parks and tree lined avenues in the suburbs to the countryside just a short drive from the centre.

Some places you may have explored before, some you may not have yet discovered and some may be among your favourite places to spend time together. As a Bristol family photographer, I know the area well and will be able to help you find a location that you and your family will love, making your photographs even more special and creating a memorable experience that is unique to you.

If you already have a location in mind that is special to your family, your next visit could be the perfect opportunity for a family photography shoot. Based locally, I’m able to travel up to an hour to any location for no added cost or, if your favourite family place is a little further afield I can travel there too, for a small fee.

By having your family photos taken outdoors, you can also take advantage of the natural beauty of the changes that each season brings to the scenery around you. From carpets of bluebells in Leigh Woods in the spring, to the warm, vibrant tones of the fallen leaves in autumn and the incredible lighting of a summer’s evening with a golden hour shoot at sunset.

Studio Family Photoshoots

A studio is perhaps the first place you’ll think of going to have your family photographs taken. Did you know you can also have studio style photographs taken in your home? Your Bristol photographer can bring a backdrop and lighting and set up in your living room.  Stunning fine art portraits of your family can be captured in any home regardless of space.

Alternatively, if you prefer natural, lifestyle photography, choosing to have the studio come to you will allow me to capture a part of family life that you otherwise wouldn’t be able to: your home. Before your shoot we will discuss the moments you want to capture in your family photo shoot.

Family special occasions

Many of our milestones throughout life are celebrated with family. Some are shared with them, too, whether it’s a christening, engagement, birthday or anniversary. Often, they’re an opportunity to spend time with the people that matter the most to you and to gather your loved ones together, whether they live near or far.

By hiring a family photographer to document these special days and precious moments in your family’s lives, you can create memories that you’ll never forget and have photographs to look back on that will allow you to relive the joy of the day itself.

There’s something extra special about the bond between grandparents and grandchildren and it’s always one that’s worth celebrating. By inviting grandparents to be a part of your family photoshoot, you can share in an experience you can look back fondly upon and have photographs that will capture those unique bonds that are shared across generations.

Unlike with photography studios, inviting extended family members doesn’t attract an extra fee when you choose a Bristol family photographer to capture your family photographs. And if you’ve been searching for an excuse for a family get together, a photoshoot is the perfect way to spend an afternoon together with the added bonus of having beautiful mementos to remember it by, too.
