Family Portrait Photographer that comes to Your Home
Create Lasting Memories with the Family Portrait Photographer who Captures Beautiful Family Portraits in Your Home.
Families book me to create beautiful studio portrait photography in the comfort and convenience of their own home. We work around your schedule, at your speed, enabling me to produce irresistible images that will last a lifetime.
My signature painterly style of portrait photography is loved by families across the UK who commissioned me to capture their family portraits, mother and daughter portraits, parent and grandparent portraits, children portraits, and even their pets too!
“The photos are so beautiful. Thank you so much... you captured exactly what I wanted.” Rebekah Walters
Portrait photography has changed so much since the 80’s formal fake smiles and over the top glamour style. Today, there is a choice ranging from high volume ‘fixed set’ portraits (often accompanied by high pressure sales) to bespoke studio fine art family portraits that give each client a unique experience.
Following rapid changes in studio lighting equipment over recent years, I am the family photographer that takes that bespoke portrait experience from the studio and brings it right into your home.
What Is Fine Art Photography?
Fine Art Photography is where the final photograph is much like a piece of art. The layout, pose and style are all considered by the artist (the photographer) to give a particular look and feel.
During our consultation we plan out the kind of portraits that you are looking for, and I put together a photoshoot to give you the memories that you will treasure forever. On the day of your session we have fun, and the look and style are guidelines that we work within, with lots of room for your personality to shine through!
Who would you like to be photographed with?
You can enjoy your photo shoot with whomever you like. Most of my clients are families and sessions often include grandparents, close relatives and even pets! A popular session includes multi-generational portraits, such as mother, daughter and grandmother.
The great thing is that being at home makes everyone more relaxed, plus you get to have your complete wardrobe on hand and everyone can come and go as required.
Your family portrait experience involves three simple steps:
2. Studio Style Sitting
3. Reveal Session.
#1 Your Consultation
Your consultation allows us to get to know each other a little better.
You tell me all about your family, and the kind of memories that you are wanting to capture. From these I will develop a plan for our portrait photography session. This is only a guideline as on the day capturing the character and personality of you and your loved ones is key.
We also look at samples of final products you will be able to create; however we do not make any final decisions at this stage as you will want to view your finished portraits first.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic I offer families the option of having their initial consultation via an online web video. Although nothing beats actually meeting your family photographer in person, we can still plan and get excited about your photoshoot!
"[I] had a great photo shoot for my two boys... [Peter] worked brilliantly with the boys and even got them to sit still!! He gave them time and made them laugh. A thoroughly good experience with Fantastic photos as a result. Would recommend to everyone!" Jane Willmott
#2 Your Studio-Style Sitting
Your family portrait photography session is a studio style sitting. I will bring the lights, props and backdrops to create the vision we discussed in our consultation.
Your portrait photography session takes place at your convenience. Having booked the date, the times are down to you. I limit my bookings to a maximum of one family portrait session per day.
We can use as much or as little of the day as we need. I’m not going to keep you any longer than you need to be (I know you’re busy), but we also don’t need to rush your session because someone else is booked in straight after you.
"Peter took the time to help me find my confidence again in front of the camera… and I'm simply blown away by them. I love them so much" Emily Turrini
#3 Your Reveal Session
A week or so after your portrait session we have your reveal session. This is when you get to see all of your beautiful portraits, and decide what you would like to buy. Depending on the session you choose you will see up to 30 portraits.
You can purchase a Walnut Treasure Box, and place all of your portraits into it for display and safe keeping. Of course you can also order large prints, framed wall art, an Italian Canvas and even our handmade Favola album.
What you buy is entirely up to you. My job is simply to take such beautiful portraits that you want to buy them all!

Your Portrait Printed
We strongly believe that portraits are created to be physical objects, displayed and treasured for years to come. However, we know that many of our clients want a copy of their portraits to keep on their computer and share on social media with family and friends. So for every purchase of a physical portrait we give you a digital copy as a complimentary gift.
Our portraits are created using a professional Giclée printing process. They are printed on heavy white cotton rag with a smooth matt surface and velvety texture. Each image meets the very highest standards regarding density, colour gamut, colour graduation and sharpness, while preserving the special touch and feel of genuine art paper. All fine art prints are archival certified for 100+ years.
One Family Portrait Photographer - One Mission
Our mission is that twenty years from now, when you look at that portrait of you with your grownup children, you won’t see a picture at all.
You will see a time and place in your lives. Memories, emotions and family connection will all come flooding back. You will see those that you love looking back at you. You will remember each person in your portraits, not just see a likeness.
"My Dad has gone now, but when I look at his portrait it feels like he is still with me."
To achieve our mission we capture portraits that are a reflection of the subjects character. We light and dress our portraits to make them special, and create memories that are a good time in themselves. We use the best quality materials to create portrait products that will last for generations to come.
“I am so glad I had that family portrait done. It makes me smile every time I pass it."
In short, I am a family photographer who creates beautiful studio style portrait photography for families in their own home.
“Having found a shoe box of old photos in the loft, I love looking at my grandparents, aunties and uncles.”
