Portraiture

Memories of families, couples and kids

Getting outdoors for engagement shoots with our wedding couples and location portraiture with families is a rad thing indeed. Using our wonderful countryside, or beaches, woodland or urban settings for backdrops is my vibe. Sarah is the studio master so she takes care of the newborns, babies, children, families, and pets in the studio. We’ll still shoot outdoor/location portraiture together though. I love shooting people outdoors, using nature as my backdrop and our client’s memories having a natural and relaxed vibe to them, whereas Sarah loves shooting in the studio creating Fine Art portraiture with controlled lighting. Whichever ticks your boxes, drop us a line and I’d love to chat ideas with you.

Location

Choose a location that has special meaning or one that fits your interests. A walk along a beach on a sunny brisk winters morning, spring in a forest clearing, sunset in a summer cornfield, motorway underpass covered in graffiti… choose somewhere that stirs emotion in you. And then have something hanging on your wall as a daily reminder of a happy moment; a daily dose of positivity does wonders.

Moments

Engagement

Capture a moment at the early stage of your life story together. A recent engagement with wedding plans starting to form and a couple shoot to immortalise this time in your lives together is a great thing to have. I don’t like to call these a ‘practise run’ for your wedding photography, although they do help you to see a photographers shooting style, but I think of them as a separate memory of you both starting out on this life thing together. Heck, you don’t have to be engaged either, just have a shoot to record how youthful and rad you are right now. The future you will look back upon this and be glad you did it.

Nature

I dig the spontaneity of shooting outdoors. As much as I love Sarah’s amazing Fine Art studio portraiture, my environment is the outdoors. Relaxed, natural outdoor shoots using nature as my backdrop, yup that’s me. Beaches, woodland, countryside, urban settings can all be epic memories. Time passes so quick, so seize the moment, get it recorded, have memories you and future generations can fondly look at around a table for years to come. And have something awesome hanging on your wall as a daily reminder of a happy moment.

Albums & Wall Art

Go pro.

Nothing beats a printed photograph hanging on your wall or a fantastic collection of images in an album or book. Digital stuff is convenient, but printed stuff is still king. Step inside and hear me out on this.
