What Is Fine Art Family Photography?
For me, fine art family photography is where the pictures tells a story. Images move on from being a cheesy grin at the camera. They become something altogether more complex.
Composition and the skilled use of controlling the light lead to beautiful, emotive images that would give you museum quality feeling images.
Great fine art family photography can be about your family being you, in your own settings. It simply takes that setting and elevates it to something special due to the photographer’s skill.
Why Choose a Fine Art Family Photographer?
When looking to choose a family photographer there are so many options available to you: studio photography or on location portraits, very posed pictures or fun and relaxed candid natural images that show your personalities. What will suit your family best is all down to personal taste.
If you choose a photographer who has a passion for pushing the boundaries of their own work, constantly seeking and finding the next level, then you can be sure your pictures will be of an incredible quality and will look amazing on your walls as your very own mini art gallery of you and your family to show to anyone that visits for years to come.
Colour or Black and white fine art family photography
Fine art family photography doesn’t have to be in black and white. However, I love to offer a mixture of colour and black and white options, black and white can give a whole new fee to an image and having a full wall of black and white art can really stand out
Black and white will fit with any wall colours and house designs where as, having lots of pictures with lots of different colours in them can look a bit mixed and don't always match. You will need to be more careful of where to place a series of colour prints so they feel like they flow and fit with your home decorations.
There’s a strong purpose behind what I produce, real memories that last the test of time. Photography is one of the few things that hugely gains in value as time goes by.
My aim is to produce pictures that your children will love as teenagers and will want to hang on their walls at university. It’s important for images to have staying power so they achieve their full purpose: memories for parents when the kids are little and memories for the kids when they’re grown up.
We all know there are times where we want to capture our elderly family, we don't know how long they will be with us. So having a family photoshoot is a great way to keep their memories with us for years to come, or maybe its to capture your kids as they grow up to show them as they get older how they evolved through their lives. Your pregnancy, the newborn memories through to their 1st to 5th birthday right up to their graduations are all key moments I believe everyone needs to have displayed around their homes. This will bring back the memories of them growing up, their personalities, their smiles and laughter, their cheekiness and their facial expressions as they learn are all important memories that we all want to remember every day.

Quality Fine-Art Printing And Framing
Fine art photographs stand out best with fine art printing techniques. That isn’t to say they can’t live digitally on your social media channels such as Facebook or Instagram, But they come to life with framed and displayed on your walls.
It has taken me many years to find the best labs and framing companies in the country to honour your memories in the best possible way. You deserve the best options to hand, I feel if I offered low quality printing and framing this would tarnish what i strive for, which is quality and great customer service from start to finish.
Its great to have a selection of fine-art framed prints leading up the stairs, down the corridors. But nothing looks better than a large photo as your centre piece over the fire place, above the table where you eat and around the living room.
I was not awarded the " THE BEST FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY SERVICE EAST MIDLANDS 2019" by the Midlands Enterprise Awards & 86 published portrait awarded images for poor quality and service, those awards gives you some idea that top quality images and customer experience is of the highest priority for me.
because I respect the families I work with, I learn who my clients are from the kids to the adults, I learn who they like and don't like. This all helps me to construct a plan of action to create timeless pieces of art for your family.
My clients don't want to feel awkward, overly posed but yet want their images to look striking at the same time. Yes we offer fully directed staged photos but also natural fun relaxed moments, this is way discussing your ideas and wheat you'd love me to do for you, is key to a great outcome.
Now you have had the chance to have a read of our styles, I'd head on over to my portfolio to explore those styles in more detail. I hope our style fits with your expectations. Once you have explored my portfolio, then its worth exploring my approach to my portrait clients, this way you will understand what each step includes.
