Family Portraits

Whether your portrait session is held in our Kenmare studio or in another outdoors location. We are always focussed on delivering the strongest images.  Our specialism lies in combining a location with available natural light and this helps to create ‘relaxed family  portraiture’. Our sessions will  often dovetail into a family gathering and catching the spirit of your occasion is our aim. 

Our style is friendly, discrete and unobtrusive. Of course the photography is only half of the journey.  Our print products have all been selected to deliver long lasting quality.   From digital copies to finished frames we can help ensure you are delighted with your purchases.


Just wanted to let you know that we are delighted with the photographs of the children.  You were really good with them and made them feel at ease – they had a great time and we have some wonderful photographs!  Many, many thanks.


We love the pictures you have really captured the personality and characters of our boys, many thanks definitely pictures we will treasure! So, so pleased with photographs! Thank you!!

Fantastic photoshoot! Nick worked really hard with my two children and their cousins and the results were amazing! Nick built instant rapport and we have some incredible photos of our family that we will treasure for many years to come! Thanks for your patience, Nick!


Family Shoot Menu

Bump to Baby
Maternity & newborn

Natural posing and minimal use of props ensure that our maternity and newborn photography sessions are guaranteed to be safe and stress-free for you and your baby.  We will capture some of the most magical moments for you to cherish forever.

Babies change so rapidly during the first few weeks of life – why not pencil in one a ‘bump to baby’ mini-shoot series and make sure you don’t miss a moment?

Tots & Toddlers

Natural interactions are the secret to success when it comes to capturing tots and toddlers who are constantly on the move!  New sibling welcomes, special birthdays and casual family shoots in the studio or outside are an ideal opportunity to capture your little ones doing what they do best!

Tweens & Teens

The best images of older kids happen when we give them space to simply be themselves. Their individual personalities never fail to shine through; these are the photographs that you will treasure forever. 


Out & About

Mini-breaks, adventure days and Sunday walks are a great backdrop for outdoor family photography sessions.  We’ll capture precious memories while you get on with creating them!

Family Get Togethers

Family gatherings, whether held inside or out, are a great opportunity to create lasting memories of special times shared between loved ones who may not see each other as often as they might like.

Special Occasions

A limited number of sessions are available for communion and confirmations each year, so these need to be booked well in advance.  Our walk-in days are ideal for capturing some of the little day to day moments like first school days and annual pupil portraits.  You can get the same great deals on portrait packs down at the studio all year round.
