These portraits of families, individuals and children show you the kind of work that I create in homes throughout the UK.
I am a portrait photographer that comes to your home to capture memories of you and your loved ones. All of these portraits were taken in living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens, gardens and even hallways in homes and on location. Where family members are too poorly to move around and the home not suitable for photography I even bring a mobile gazebo studio to your garden. Cool hey!

This simple but beautiful portrait photograph was captured in the kitchen of a normal family home.
This young lady was treated to a relaxed and pressure free photoshoot in her kitchen at home! It may look like this photo was taken in a studio but it was not. The kitchen was the biggest free space in the home and so we converted it into a mobile studio for a couple of hours.
Being at home everything was a lot more relaxed. We even were able to include favourite toys. Getting changed into a range of outfits was also a breeze as Mum was on hand to shuttle between her bedroom and the kitchen.
"Could not recommend Peter more he took these beautiful photos of my daughter in our home making her feel a bigger diva than she already is...He was absolutely brilliant [my daughter] felt like a superstar and was at ease for the whole thing. Would 100% recommend Peter"
There is no mad rush to get the children ready and out the door. 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.
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.
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!
