The Portrait Studio Experience in the comfort of your own home
At Peter Nutkins Photography, our number one priority is that you feel completely relaxed and at ease throughout your photo experience.
We start with a pre-shoot consultation, usually a week or so before, where we get to know you a little, and talk through what exactly you are looking for. By the time we come to take the photos, we feel like old friends.
We come to your home to capture your images as this is where you are most relaxed. It also means you have everything to hand, and don’t need to worry about remembering everything on the day.
We set aside one whole day per shoot. So if you want us there for 9am, stop for a coffee break, or lunch, then carry on into the afternoon with a different outfit, there’s no problem. Equally if you only have an hour we make that work too.
There is no mad rush to get the children ready and out the door to get your portraits. You do not have to worry about parking, or looking stressed when you arrive. At home, you are in your comfort zone.
Getting a professional portrait taken can seem so difficult - it can easily put you off. When I come to you, you are in your own home. You and the family can relax. There is no stress of getting out and ready and coping with the rest of the family as you bundle them into the car. Then there is no worry that the children will get bored, and you will have to cope with a new situation and no 'what if it all goes wrong?' stress.
Because we are in your space you feel so much more comfortable. I am a visitor, not you. This is especially effective when children are taking part in your photoshoot. They can come and go as needed and have easy access to their own toys, snacks, games and clothes. You can imagine that this reduces the stress on you considerably and that means that your portrait will be better too.
Your child's favourite toy can be in shot too!
Yet another advantage of being in your home is those things that really mean something to you and your family are easily to hand. To give you an example, one of our boys loved a little toy rabbit. It went everywhere with him. If we forgot it and left it at home then he behaved in a very different way! Being at home means rabbit, or a favourite bedtime book, or blanket are within easy reach. Imagine being able to look back in years to come and remember all of the stories that surround your loved ones and their favourite things.
Relaxed fun at home
Being able to change clothes easily is also very handy when it comes to teenagers who want a different look. First, they can have their portrait taken in the clothes and style that you want. Then they can express their individuality in their own mini session too. Imagine them being able to have the portrait that they want and how good it will make them feel. And, you get the portrait you want too!
Family Portrait Photographer
It's 9am on Tuesday morning. Two year old Lucy has just spilled her orange juice down the front of her best dress, and four year old Harry is getting up close and personal with Misty the family dog, who has just come in after a good roll in the freshly cut grass.
Harry's favourite blue shirt (the only one he will wear at the minute) is covered in grass and dog hair...and you have to be at the portrait photographer's studio in less than an hour! You've been putting this portrait sitting off for months because Lucy can't sit still for more than 30 seconds, but the grandparents' golden wedding is coming up and you really wanted to give them a family portrait.
Now imagine this...
It's 9am on Tuesday morning. Peter the Portrait Photographer is arriving at 10am. You had a lovely chat with him last week when he came to visit for your pre shoot consultation and the kids loved him. You have already discussed which family portraits would be special to capture - individuals and the whole family. He is going to stay for as much of the day as you need, so Harry's shirt can have a quick spin in the washer drier and there's plenty of time to change Lucy into her second best dress. Misty can play in the garden, but Peter loves dogs and will probably want to take her photo too!
So, instead of stressing and rushing and panicking about finding a parking space, you pop that shirt into the machine and put the kettle on...
"But I want my family portraits to look like they were taken in a professional photographer studio," I hear you cry. Never fear - we bring backdrops, lights, the whole shebang!
Lucy can wear six different dresses, Harry can sit on his rocking horse (that his grandparents gave him for his birthday), and you can be confident that Peter will capture you all at your very best. Your portraits will be amazing.
