Portraiture Photography - TheStoryHouse

Portraiture is an exciting & wide-ranging field of photography and is at the heart of all my art.

Portraits can be a beautiful keepsake, a picture to mark a special occasion or just a snap shot in time to help remember precious and fleeting moments.

Child Adventure sessions

My child 'Adventure' sessions take place in the open air. We head out to a location of your choosing, it can be somewhere that is familiar to your little one, a favourite place perhaps or somewhere totally new.

We allow time for them to play and discover, find things and hide things all the while I'll be watching just waiting for those magical moments to unfold right before my camera.

A session will generally take an hour or two with plenty of time for your little one to have lots of fun and adventure. As always, if we find we need longer then thats absolutely fine too. I go for really natural looking photographs and that can't be forced.


Portrait Sessions.

I start my portrait sessions with a discussion about what you would like to get out of your portraits. There are many different reasons people come to me, whether its just to have a beautiful, elegant photograph of yourself or your loved one, to promote a project you're working on or maybe you're an artist that needs some portraits to help your public persona. Whatever your reason, it won't take long before your personalised concept is born.

Some portraits require location visits before the session takes place, this is something I'm happy to do as my portraits are often unique and tailored to you, the individual being photographed. I strongly believe that preparation is invaluable and helps your experience to run smoothly allowing you to relax and enjoy yourself.

By the time we get to our location and are ready to start taking photographs we'll have had lots of discussion, be very excited and have a clear plan. 

Session times will generally vary but as always,  I allow plenty of time to get everything just right. 




Family Portrait Sessions.

Just as with my portrait sessions, I start my family portrait session off with a discussion about what you'd like from your set of photographs. Some like a more formal approach and some prefer a more candid style. 

My family portrait sessions can take place in or around your home or in a location of your choosing. It could be somewhere that means something to you as a family, somewhere you regularly visit or somewhere completely new. Once we have a plan I'll head out to visit the location before the session to refine our plans to help everything run smoothly, especially helpful if you are lucky enough to have a large family group. 

These sessions generally take around an hour or so depending on your groups size and the number of different locations we use. However, as always, if more time is needed then thats no problem.
