Family Photographer Bristol

The Reason Why?

Let me help you with this!

Book a family photographer for a photo shoot to capture fantastic memories with your family.

We believe in the power of authenticity. Our photography is not just about posed pictures; it’s about capturing the genuine, candid moments representing your family’s unique dynamic.

We focus on creating a relaxed environment where your family’s natural interactions and emotions shine through. This approach ensures that the images we capture are not just photographs but true representations of your family’s love, laughter, and personality.

We recognize that every family is different, and so are their stories. That’s why we offer a personalized experience tailored to reflect your family’s one-of-a-kind character. From the initial consultation to the final delivery of your images, we work closely with you to understand your preferences, style, and vision for your session. Whether it’s a playful day-in-the-life shoot, a serene maternity session, or a grand family reunion, we adapt our style to meet your needs.

How it works

Once you’ve submitted your enquiry form, the next step is for us to set up a meeting and a consultation. As a family photographer, I see this as the perfect opportunity for you to ask any questions you might have and for me to understand exactly what you’re looking for in your family photo session.

I always prefer to meet in person, but a video call or Zoom meeting can work if that’s impossible. As your family photographer, I want to align perfectly with your vision. If you decide to proceed after our meeting, we’ll secure the photo session date with a deposit.

Leading up to the session, we’ll maintain constant communication to ensure the entire process is smooth and to guarantee that you’ll be delighted with your forever-treasured family photos.

We had a lovely time with her our newborn baby photoshoot. She came to our home; she was patient. It is not easy with a newborn baby and with her six-year-old sister. We love the pictures. Love flows from them. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Eszter to everyone.❤️



As a family photographer, I often get asked about the difference between family and lifestyle photography. With family photography, you’ll get everyone looking at the camera and smiling, while lifestyle photography captures natural moments of your family’s personality and relationships. Family photography is more posed and traditional, while lifestyle photography is more relaxed and candid.

Both styles have benefits, depending on what you’re looking for in your family photos. If you want a traditional family portrait, family photography is the way to go. But if you want something more candid and unique, then lifestyle photography is the way to capture your family’s memories.

The duration of a family photo shoot can vary based on several factors, such as the size of your family, the location of the shoot, and the type of photos you desire. As a family photographer, I typically find that a photo shoot can last anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours.

For smaller families, or if you’re looking for a few specific shots, a shorter session of around 30 minutes might be ideal. However, for larger families or if you’re seeking a wider variety of photos, we might need a longer time to capture all the moments you’re hoping for.

Don’t worry; as your family photographer, when we collaborate, we’ll discuss your goals for the photo shoot and decide on the best duration to suit your needs. Most importantly, we capture those wonderful family moments you’ll treasure for many years!

As a family photographer, I always recommend wearing something that makes you feel comfortable and reflects your family’s style. Not fussing with your clothes during the shoot is important, as comfort can enhance the overall experience.

Coordinating your outfits is a great idea, but matching perfectly is unnecessary. Choosing a colour scheme and having each family member wear different shades of that colour can create a harmonious look. As your family photographer, I suggest considering the location and season when selecting your outfits, ensuring everyone is comfortable for the photo session.

Most importantly, have fun with your outfit choices! Feeling confident and relaxed during the photoshoot is key. This way, you can fully enjoy the experience, and we can capture those special family moments that you’ll cherish forever.

As a family photographer, I love it when families include their pets in their photo shoots! I understand that pets are essential to the family, and capturing them in your photos is necessary.

Let me know if you want to bring your pet along so I can plan for it. We can discuss any special needs or concerns you may have so we can make sure your furry friend is comfortable and happy throughout the photoshoot.

When the day comes, we’ll work together to get some fantastic shots of your pet alone and with the whole family. I’ll do my best to ensure your pet is having a blast and that we capture their unique personality.
