Family and Children's Portrait Photographer

Are you looking for a portrait photographer in Bristol who can capture great family portraits but outside the confines of a photo studio?

Are you looking to get some fantastic looking, bright and bold photographs of your kids that truly capture their character and don't have the "Say Cheese" face that they've been taught at nursery?

If you are then I might just be the Bristol Portrait Photographer for you!

Without being stuck in a small photo studio means that if your children want to run, jump in puddles, sit on a step they can and I will be there to photograph them and capture the little quirks that make them unique.

I’m a big fan of the Harbourside area of Bristol with the vibrant backdrop of the M-Shed and Cargo but if you have a favourite park then let’s arrange to meet there for your family photo shoot.

Being a parent myself I know that not trying to capture a photograph of your own kids can be a tricky task especially once they become aware of the camera and the 'smile' face comes out or they simply refuse to even look at the camera.  Instead of putting yourself through the trauma why not let me photograph them.  I'm a father of 2 boys myself so I've got an insider knowledge of kids tv, terrible jokes and of course the odd fart noise once in a while which all form part of the repertoire in capturing the character of your little person.

Framed Family Portraits

 Do you have a bare wall at home screaming out for a great framed photograph of your child?  I love to produce pictures of your children that show off their true character and what a better place to photograph them than on location around Bristol making the use of the fantastic vibrant and bold colourful backdrops that can be found around every corner.

Lifestyle Photography

My style of capturing the photographs can be categorised as Lifestyle Photography.  It's a midway between posed portraits and taking a documentary approach.  I will guide you into an area where I think the best photographs can be created but it's definitely not a regimental approach.  Your little ones will naturally want to explore and have fun and this is where I'm able to capture them simply being them.

To make a booking the process is a fairly simple and painless one.

There is a session fee of £50 which is payable in advance.  Think of it as a booking fee if you like but that £50 will go towards a credit for one of the collections once the portrait photography session has taken place.

Following the portrait photography session, the edited images will be uploaded to a private gallery for 7 days for you to view and make your decisions as to which of the images you’d like for your chosen collection.  If you decide you would like to make a feature of your chosen image and turn it into a family heirloom to be mounted on the wall then we can discuss the options for framing that are available or look into creating a coffee table style book to show to all your visitors.

Some kind words from a recent family photoshoot

"My son had a photoshoot with Martin and it was fun, relaxed yet very professional. Martin is great with the camera and with the kids. I would definitely recommend!"
