Family Portraits

I am always overjoyed when asked to do a family portrait session, whether it be indoors studio type work, or outdoors and informal shots.  I always feel privileged that the family are trusting me to capture this point in their lives, and to create a visual reminder that will last a lifetime.  Over the past few months I have had the pleasure of meeting several families for such portrait sessions, all have been up for anything, and some have had ideas of what they would like to achieve and others have just gone with the flow and allowed themselves to be guided by me.

Children are always up for fun and tend to be a lot less inhibited than the older family members, but I hope that I put people at ease so they all relax, this produces the best images.

We are very lucky in Milton Keynes that we have some stunning parklands and old stately homes that can be used as backdrops for outdoor portraits when the British Weather allows!

Some of the images I have captured are shown below, some I cannot show yet as they are Christmas Presents for family and I don't want to ruin the surprise :)
