Family portraits in Oxford and Oxfordshire

As a father I know the importance of capturing those beautiful stages as our children grow up. My approach is real-life portraits. It is less sugar-coated and more honest realism of pure documentary style portraiture. We can take a walk at your favourite spot or I can come to your home for natural reportage portraiture. We can take more traditional portraits, with creative lighting and backdrop, while still capturing the essence and personality of those being photographed – whether that is the cheeky smiles of little ones or the cherished awkwardness of your teenagers. I have been photographing Oxford and Oxfordshire families for years.
