Family Portrait Photographer that comes to Your Home
Create Lasting Memories with the Family Portrait Photographer who Captures Beautiful Studio Style Portraits in Your Home.
Families book me to create beautiful studio portrait photography in the comfort and convenience of their own home. I work around their schedule, at their 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 commission me to capture their portraits. They have discovered that having their family photographer come to them makes creating beautiful images so simple.
I provide a bespoke 'stay at home' family photographer service designed to create memories that will be treasured for generations to come. Using only the best quality products, sourced from around the world, I produce portraits that you will keep coming back to again and again.
There has never been a time when creating memories of those that we love has been more important. Having a beautiful portrait of your loved ones to look at each day enables you to stay together, even when you can't always be together.
“The photos are so beautiful. Thank you so much... you captured exactly what I wanted.” Rebekah Walters
Every family is different, so I make sure that your experience is tailored specifically to you. You may be looking for a group portrait along with a selection of beautiful smaller group and individual images to have around the house. Many families take advantage of having a family photographer creating portraits in their home and invite their extended family and friends along too!
The great thing is that being at home makes everyone more relaxed. You have your complete wardrobe on hand, your children have their favourite toys, your pets are available and everyone can come and go as required. One of the biggest advantages if your have younger children is that their nap and feeding time take place in familiar surroundings.
"Excellent experience from start to finish, and the photos look so good they could be paintings. A thoroughly top job, cannot recommend highly enough." R Mitchell
#1 Your Consultation
To help you get exactly what you want from your family portrait photographer experience I visit you before hand in what I call your consultation. You tell me all about yourself, and the kind of memories that you are wanting to capture.
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!
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 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!
Unlike many modern photographers I am a family photographer that has a 'painterly style'. This means that my final portraits, once printed, look remarkably like paintings. Your consultation also gives you the opportunity to look at and handle samples of final products that you will be able to order; however we do not make any final decisions at this stage as you will want to view your finished portraits first.
"[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
The experience offered by a professional family photographer 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 sessions designed to give each client a unique experience.
Following rapid improvements 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.
#2 Your Studio-Style Sitting
Your session with your family photographer is a studio style sitting. I will bring the lights, props and backdrops to create the memories 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 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 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.
You will not be put under pressure by me to buy or choose additional products, I hate high pressure sales too.
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
As a portrait photographer I 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 also want a copy to keep on their computer and share on social media with family and friends. So for every purchase of wall art we give you a digital copy of your portrait as a complimentary gift for you to use and share.
Your final 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.
"Hi Peter, Thanks once again for the photos!!! They are amazing and we really love them" L Mazengo
Family Portrait Photographer - My Mission
My 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 loving 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 my mission I capture portraits that are a reflection of the your character. I light and dress your portraits to make them special, and create beautiful memories.
“I am so glad I had that 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.”
