I am Peter Nutkins, a specialist family portrait photographer who travels to your home to capture studio style portraits. I bring everything I need to create portraits that would usually be captured in a professional studio.

I help people just like you create precious memories. Portraits of you and your loved ones that radiate just how beautiful you really are. Memories that you will revisit time and time again, but will outlive us both and become a treasured heirloom for generations to come.
These include many things, but some of these include:
Once you have booked your portrait photoshoot you will be given an online portal. This is like a mini website all of its own where everything connected with your portraits is connected.
You will find your galleries, invoices, contracts, design proofs and other documents easy to hand. You will also have all of the information about your portrait session.
One of the documents that you will find in your portal is a guide to makeup. How much should you wear and what is the best type for portrait photography? You will find easy to understand information (pictures too) to help guide you in this area. If you still have any questions thenI am just a call or email away.
To achieve the portrait above this particular photograph I set up my mobile studio in the living room of Elle's home. Elle is a young mum and there was not too much room, but never fear - I can work around most things! There is no need to be embarrassed about clutter, especially around children. We have four children and know exactly what itis like, and how difficult it is to clear away every single one of those Lego pieces!
This style of image is called hi-key. This is due to the fact that the image is predominately very bright. Low-key would be the other way around and be very dark.
To achieve a relaxed 'young mum at home' look we went with a more casual jumper and jeans. Elle was leaning against a large piece of white foam board which I brought for just this purpose. The foam board was actually leaning up against her sofa to give some resistance to lean against. To ensure that the image was nicely lit and bright behind her, I also used a large piece of white foam board as the background. With a studio light shaped to look like natural sunlight, we took a number of portraits just like this.
If you are thinking about having your portrait taken and are still not sure whether it is for you or not, then take a moment or two to read through the pages in the portraits menu. If you have any questions at all then do not hesitate to get in touch.
Have a look at the portraits on this website - they are all taken in homes, gardens and favourite spots, none are taken in a studio. Lastly, get in touch with me and we can talk about what you would like to achieve.
Finally, these are the words that Elle wrote after our session:
He is friendly, professional and has a great sense of humour. We chatted throughout and I felt really at ease.
