Family Portraiture

There's no more important thing to celebrate than your family and what better use of your wall space at home can there be? Great portraits capture your special moments keeping them real forever. Most of us aren't ultra comfortable in front of the camera, that is why I keep everything low key and relaxed, I come with no predetermined schedules, we make a plan together for exactly what will work for you and your family.

It's so not about turning up at a stuffy studio in your Sunday best and behaving yourselves
it's about us having a talk or a walk

I'm always willing to go the extra 10 yards to make things work. With 25 years experience as a photojournalist, I'm used to shooting on the run and I rarely miss the moments. If it's real life portraiture that you want, that is very much what I do.


It's totally up to you

I can suggest locations, we can walk in your favourite place or the shoot can take place at your home or your gardens. For a more studied portrait we can even drop a backdrop and really home in on the personality and attitude. Whether that's a fit of giggles or teenage despondency, it's about capturing real personalities and genuine stages of life.


Start price £150 for shoot at your home
£200 on location (Oxon)

***** Excellent photos and an understated presence at our new-baby party. Would highly recommend.

The Catchpole family

***** I am are delighted with the photographs Richard created of myself my wife and two children over the space of two hours. I found that It was a relaxed occasion with a lot of fun to be had, and he handled our children beautifully ( 3+5year sold ). We will cherish the photos, and they take pride of place in our entrance hall.

***** Having seen Rich's impressive portfolio, I asked him to kindly take photos at my 50th birthday party (it was full on fancy dress with circa 70 people). He and his work were amazing. The photos were incredible. He didn't stage manage anything, he simply mingled with the party and took some wonderfully authentic photos of party people being party people and in their element, blissfully unaware of the camera. It was so special and he helped us have incredibly vivid permanent images of an amazing event with friends and family. I couldn't recommend Rich highly enough! To boot he is a top bloke. Thanks again Rich.
