Hull Portrait Photography | Booking a Family Studio Session

What is portrait photography?

Portrait photography is probably one of the most recognisable and expressive forms of photography. People had commissioned artists to create portraits long before photography existed, and that tradition remains as popular as ever. Portrait photography is a style that relies on staged, static poses of individuals or groups of people posing against a contrasting background where the main focus is the subject being photographed.

Portraits are usually taken in a studio setting with controlled lighting and minimal décor and props; however, I personally also like to organise portrait photography sessions in nature or even in your own home. I believe nature is an excellent setting for all kinds of portrait photography sessions, such as pregnancy announcements and engagement or family photo sessions. 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, what I love about portrait photography is that every individual, couple or family group that comes in have their unique personalities, likes and dislikes. I absolutely love capturing those glimpses of themselves in my photos. I like making people laugh and capturing natural, happy pictures of my clients having a lovely time.

Why should you choose portrait photography?

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. While 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, celebrate your engagement or a special birthday, create memories of your newborn baby or just a way to remember other special moments in your life. I especially enjoy photographing families, as I love capturing the special connection they share in my photos. It’s incredible how much personality and energy a picture can hold; it’s no wonder they say a picture is worth a thousand words.

2. Create memories with your family and loved ones

You should choose portrait photography because it is a lovely 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. So, whether you’d prefer a shorter studio session or a more extended location photoshoot, I have a package that is right for you, for only £45!
