Family photography in Somerset

A family photoshoot is a chance for you to have a lasting record of this time in your life, with expressions, moments and interactions remembered. My family photography is all about capturing images that reveal a moment when faces you love are flooded with genuine feeling. Years fly by and before you know it, all you’ve got are some smartphone snapshots. Make time to remember and record this time of being together with beautiful, high-quality photographs to treasure.

Family photoshoots in Somerset

My photoshoots are fun and relaxed so that you and your family can feel at ease in front of the camera. Natural interactions and emotions pass in a few seconds during a one-hour photo session but I aim to capture them, along with some more arranged shots, and you all having a bit of fun! I use natural light when I can and a variety of techniques to create photos that are both stunning and authentic. Your photo session can be at your home or I can meet you at a location of your choice for a relaxed hour outside – the old victorian seafront in Clevedon, Portishead marina, Cheddar Gorge, Chew Valley Lake are a few great places for a photo session. If you prefer to just hang out in your local park or nearby field, that’s absolutely fine, too. You can try somewhere new or we can just meet at a place you know your family loves.

“Alison is amazing! The photo session was so much fun and Alison made it really enjoyable for the kids too. She is super patient. The photos are incredible! We have had so many comments on how good they are, with friends saying they are the best quality they have ever seen. Thank you for a wonderful experience and beautiful photos.” ~ The Balfour family

“We really wanted someone who would be able to capture our son Alexander at his smiley best and you certainly did that! You were brilliant with him and we absolutely love our photos, we can’t wait to get them up on the wall. Thank you!” ~ The Reed family

“Alison did a family photoshoot for us in Bath as part of a celebration of my mum’s 60th birthday. We were so impressed with the whole experience – from her efficiency in organising beforehand, the quality of the shoot on the day, to the follow-up and ordering process afterward. The photos themselves are so natural and happy. Alison put us all at ease and really captured the family as we are. I would absolutely recommend her and would certainly use her skills for future events. My mum is delighted with the finished results and it was a really special part of her birthday.” ~ The Duff family


A recent family photoshoot in the woods

There’s something magical about the woods — the way the light filters through the trees, nature, a sense of peace and adventure. I did this photoshoot for a family recently in Pipley Woods near Bath. Each photo is a memory frozen in time, a piece of a larger story about love and family.
