Hull Portrait Photographer | Booking a Family Studio Session
What is portrait photography?
Portrait photography is one of the most expressive and recognised forms of photography. Before there were cameras, people would commission artists to create portraits of their loved ones; this still remains a popular gift and tradition. Portraits are a style of photography that uses staged poses with contrasting backgrounds.
Portraits are commonly taken in a studio with controlled lighting and having minimal decorations and props; however, I personally love to organise portrait sessions in and around nature or your own home. Nature is a stunning setting for all types of portrait photography sessions, such as engagement shoots, pregnancy announcements or family photos. I love to change the backgrounds of a shoot to match the season or reason for the shoot.
I have two portrait photography packages available to suit your needs and budget, from a short studio session to an hour-long location session in a setting of your choice.
As a Hull Portrait Photographer, I love that with each individual session there is a unique glimpse into peoples’ personalities, likes and dislikes and poses. I love to catch these glimpses in the photos themselves. I always enjoy capturing the natural moments as we laugh, giving clients happy pictures of them and their loved ones.
Why should you choose a Hull portrait photographer?
In the age of selfies and social media, people often underestimate the importance of booking a photography session with a professional, however there are 3 main benefits to doing so:
1. Capture important milestones or moments in your life
Traditionally people would only consider hiring a photographer for their wedding. Though there are many reasons why you should invest in a wedding photographer, the same applies to other special events in your life. For example, a portrait photography session can be a great way to document your pregnancy, to celebrate your engagement, create memories of your newborn baby or just a way to remember other special moments in your life. I love to shoot fun-filled Christmas portraits with clients young to old, from first Christmases to those with the whole family.
2. Create memories with your family and loved ones
You should choose portrait photography because it is an enjoyable experience that you can share with your family and friends. In addition, going to a photography studio is a unique experience that can turn into a beautiful memory you are reminded of when you look back on your gorgeous portraits for years to come.
Not everyone is comfortable in front of a camera, but I like to make people feel at ease by pulling my best silly face and cracking my favourite dad joke to make you laugh. This way, my photos look natural, comfortable and, most importantly – fun! I like to think that I have built a connection with many of my previous clients, and this shows in their happy, genuine smiles and laughs. As a photographer, those are the moments that mean the most to me.
3. Keepsakes that will last a lifetime
One of the most compelling reasons to choose a portrait photography session is that you will be left with some stunning images that will take pride of place on your mantle for years to come. Professional photography is exceptionally high quality, and your pictures are guaranteed to stand out so you can treasure them for a lifetime. In addition, a good portrait photographer will know what angles and lighting to use to make you look your best so you can relax, unwind, be yourself and have fun in front of the camera. Trust me; your photos will look stunning as a result!
Plus, these portraits would make lovely gifts for friends and family, too. I have flexible packages available, which include both digital downloads and printed copies of your portraits, so you can choose the option that best fits your needs. Please get in touch if you have any questions about booking a portrait photography session.
In conclusion, portrait photography is a brilliant way to celebrate very special events in your life together with friends and family. At the end of your session, you will be left with some stunning photos that you can treasure and admire forever. I offer a variety of packages that include both prints and digital downloads, as well as two session formats to suit your needs.
