Portrait Photographer That Comes To Your Home
I am a professional portrait photographer that comes to your home rather than you coming to me. Families I photograph book me to create beautiful portraits in the comfort and convenience of their own homes. As a family photographer that comes to your home, I offer either a studio, lifestyle, or location session.
The vast majority of families book me for a studio-style photoshoot. The studio backgrounds, props and lights are brought by me to your home to create a mobile studio. This is the perfect solution to suit a busy lifestyle.
Being at home means your family portraits will be of the highest standard. My clients expect the highest quality service and boutique products. No two sessions are ever the same. We work around your schedule, at your speed to get the style and look that you would like.
Photographer That Comes To Your Home
You will find that having a family portrait photographer come to your home really is the most stress-free way to get that perfect family portrait.
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. 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 it to look like a studio shot," 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.
Photographer That Creates Your Portrait Memories
What Happens Before The Photoshoot?
We meet up before your photoshoot and we design the kind of portraits that you are looking for. Being creative is all part of being a portrait photographer and planning out how my studio will best fit in your home is half the fun!
My mobile studio is set up in a position that will capture your family at their very best. This could be the sitting room, dining room, kitchen, or garden. You will be surprised by how creative I can be to get your beautiful portraits!
What To Expect On Photoshoot Day
I arrive nice and early to get set up and then we are ready for action!
While most children are completely confident in front of the camera I’m aware that not all adults share this enthusiasm. My aim is to make the whole process fun and pain-free. I know how to make sure you’re in the good light and how to use the right angles. You’ll look your very best without feeling like you’re being put on the spot.
After Your Portrait Session
After your portrait session, I’ll process your portraits and prepare them for your Reveal Session.
We’ll arrange a convenient time for me to show you your wonderful portraits in the comfort of your own home. You can order and keep your prints there and then, along with a beautiful walnut treasure box.
If you would like frames or albums these can be ordered too. We’ll arrange the careful delivery of your bespoke frames, ready to be hung on the wall and enjoyed forever.
Creating Memories In Your Home
I'm Peter Nutkins, a family portrait photographer. Today I live in rural Derbyshire but I was brought up, worked and am regularly in and about Somerset with my family. Now I am the portrait photographer who travels to your home wherever you are.
I travel to every part of the UK creating lasting memories for families and individuals just like you.
I’d love to be your family portrait photographer, helping you tell your family or personal story. It would be my honour to be a part of creating your legacy.
Here’s my promise to you:
- I am here for you. I’ll be your guide and help you tell your story; the moments that matter to you.
- I will always extract the positive in your story; the joy, happiness, and delight.
- You will always walk away from your photographic experience with a lasting heirloom, whether it be a framed print to display on your wall, a walnut folio box or coffee table book that you can glance through every day.
- I will focus on the people, relationships and moments during your session.
- Your family photography is all about you, not me.
Your Portrait At Home Experience
Your family portrait experience is unique to you and your loved ones, although you would expect:
- I get in contact with you so that you can find out a little more and we can arrange a no-obligation consultation in your home.
- Your consultation allows you to touch and see something of the legacy you will be creating, ask any questions, and start planning the design of your own family portrait photoshoot.
- You pay your deposit, sign your contract and have access to your online client portal.
- Your shoot takes place at your home or favourite location. You have fun and create memories to treasure. We also arrange your Reveal Session.
- Your Reveal Session where you get to see your portraits.
- You enjoy your memories for years to come.

Your Portrait Legacy
Your memories are there for you to enjoy today. But, perhaps, more importantly, you want your memories there for you to share in the future. Your memories passed down and told through generations, and become part of the legacy you create. It is this aspect that thrills me most as a portrait photographer.
That’s why we will collaborate to create a beautiful heirloom together, whether it be a framed print to display on your wall, walnut folio box, or coffee table book that you can glance through every day.
Of course, every image you purchase is given to you digitally as well.
