Our portrait sessions are relaxed and fun. Jon captures the laughter and interaction of your family together. We allow time for each session so there is no pressure to rush, there is ample time for little ones to get to know us, to try different ideas and poses and to have a change of clothes to create a different look if you would like. It is not just a single set up Jon will photograph you together as a family and then any other combinations you and your family would like.
We will focus on you and your family - providing you with a great set of images and giving you the look and feel to your photographs that you desire.
We offer our Studio sessions from our contemporary Studio in St Ives with ample free onsite parking. We also have a large changing/make-up room so you are welcome to bring a change of clothing for a different look to your photos if you would like. It is great to have somewhere to fix your hair and make-up when you arrive or if you prefer we can book a make-up artist for you so you can relax whilst she applies your make up for you.
Our location / lifestyle portraits can be at your favourite local location* - one that has meaning for you and your family - can be woodlands, gardens or parks the choice is yours. Ideal for those who love the great outdoors.
If you would love your pets to be involved please let us know - they are welcome too.
After your session we will arrange for you to come back in to our studio for a private viewing of your images on our large screen - a perfect way to view every detail of your photos and discuss how you would like them displayed.
