Family portrait photography Stoke-on-Trent, Leek, Buxton, Macclesfield and their surrounding areas.

Family portrait shoots should be fun. I love to capture the relationships in the families I photograph, and the best way to do that is if you’re having a good time and being natural with each other. This is one of the reasons my preference is to hold family portrait shoots on location. We can either hold the session at a beautiful outdoor setting where you can be yourselves against a beautiful backdrop, or in your home if you prefer.

My personal view is that you can’t beat an outdoor setting for a family portrait shoot. Fortunately there are loads of fantastic settings right on our doorstep. We are really lucky to have some of the UK’s most beautiful scenery a matter of minutes away, so if you can’t think of anywhere to go for your family portrait session off the top of your head don’t worry, I can suggest a number stunning locations that are a matter of minutes away that will make your family portraits look absolutely awesome.

Although my preference is to shoot outdoors as I love to use natural light and to have a picturesque backdrop, given that we live in the UK and the weather can never be totally relied upon, holding the shoot in the privacy of your home is always an option. Having said that, I’d urge you to think of this as a last resort, and by way of setting your mind at ease, if you book an outdoor session and the weather lets us down on the day we can just re-arrange for another day at no extra cost.

Family portrait shoots typically last 1-2hrs. If you would like to book a session, or if you have any questions, please contact me at info@ajmellorphotography.co.uk, on 07791 519189, or by using the form on the contact page.
