As well as photographing beautiful weddings, we also love to photograph relaxed family portraits out on location and we love nothing more than being out and about, exploring a park, a woodland or river walk, a farm, the countryside, a beach or simply someone's home, capturing the true love and character of your beautiful family. There are so many colourful, naturaI backdrops out there offering the perfect environment for creative family portraits.


We work in a very relaxed manner, allowing you and your children to play and have fun. We will spend time with you on your photoshoot and simply wait for those special little "not-to-be-missed" moments that you will treasure for a lifetime.

Our Location Portraits often take place around Colchester and surrounding areas. We will be happy to discuss a location with you which can be somewhere that has meaning to you and your family, perhaps somewhere you like to visit, or it can simply be at your home in your beautiful garden. Alternatively, we do  have the beautiful Bures Mill and surrounding Meadows right on our doorstep, which is picture perfect for photoshoots, if you are happy to come to us.


Most Family Shoots take approximately 1 - 2 hours which allows plenty of time for a good variety of backdrops and poses. You are more than welcome to bring along your family pet or any props that you might like to include in your photoshoot.

Regarding what to wear, we always suggest keeping it very relaxed, as that suits the style of our portraits. Try to go for something that combines you all well together and more importantly, something that makes you feel comfortably and isn't restricting, as you will need to move around easily.
