Family and Group Portraits

Whether it’s a relaxed, informal family portrait taken outdoors or a more formal approach photographed at home, a family portrait captures a unique and irreplaceable moment in time. A family portrait session should be relaxed and fun, and while we’re happy to guide you when it comes to clothing and choice of location, we’re also keen for you to express specific ideas you may have.

How It Works

We begin with a brief telephone conversation, during which we’ll talk through the style of portrait you had in mind and discuss ideas for clothing and any potential props. We’ll also agree on a location and time. Based in West Dorset, we’re blessed with some spectacular locations locally, but we’re equally happy to drive further afield if you have a special place in mind. Many outdoor locations will be weather dependent so we may need to reschedule if the conditions don’t look favourable. For indoor sessions we will bring all necessary lighting equipment.

Most sessions will last between one and two hours, after which we can quickly review the session on a laptop computer and discuss your requirements in terms of prints, frames, canvases, or photo books.


A photography session for your pet or you and your pet works in much the same way as a family or group portrait. We’re blessed with wonderful natural locations in West Dorset, ideal places in which to capture some memorable images of your animal companions.
