Family Portraiture

Your kids are getting bigger every day, and most people can't remember the last time they had real photographs taken as a family.

We see those gorgeous images of families loving and playing in the sunset on social media, with siblings holding hands and babies being thrown by Daddy. It doesn't need to be a special occasion to have beautiful family portraits because tomorrow they will only be older again, and so will you. I want to capture stunning images of your family for you to cherish.

Together we can have a playful, happy experience with relaxed, natural expressions and connection between you all.


The photoshoots take place within 25 miles of CF72, and I can shoot further away for an additional fee. I have a list of locations you can select from, or we can discuss the ideal place for your family over the phone. Sessions start during the first hour after sunrise and about 1.5 hours before sunset, and this time will differ depending on the season.


Booking ahead will ensure that I am available for you.

If you book to celebrate a special occasion like a Birthday or Christmas, let me know the date a few months ahead of time. Please understand that your photos will be retouched and ready in about 12 business days, and some products may take between 10 working days like prints and digitals, or eight weeks for custom wall art, depending on what you select. This is why most photoshoots for the Christmas period are shot in the Autumn.

To provide the best quality and variety and to stay true to your original collection choice, I select the best images to edit and include in your gallery. Edited digital products are not exchangeable. Sometimes, a few unedited images will be reserved and can be bought as an extra at £40 per image. They will be edited after purchase and sent separately. Wall art, frames, albums or prints from my a la carte menu are optional and chosen once you see your gallery at your viewing appointment.


I hand-edit each image to perfection. I am all about quality over quantity. I carefully select the best images, and over a few days, I retouch them in Photoshop to make everyone look well-rested and remove unwanted distractions.

I back up the files for safety and then create a video slideshow for your viewing appointment.

Viewing & Ordering
Twelve working days after your photo shoot, you will be invited to view your portraits and all product options at my home studio.


Frames, Albums & Prints

When you purchase a digital collection, there is no obligation to buy any additional products. Most customers love the option of adding extra prints, wall art or digitals. When you see your portraits, you may order something for the wall or an album. My product menu is individually priced, allowing flexibility because everyone wants something different.

We are proud to be the only supplier in South Wales of The Original Photoblocks products and classic, vintage and modern style frames.
