I’m a lifestyle portrait and wedding photographer based in Lymm, near Warrington, in Cheshire. I’m often asked what ‘lifestyle portraits’ are and why are they different from studio family portraits. Lifestyle portraits capture your way of life, your style, your tastes and your values. For me, lifestyle portrait photography is also about photographing in natural light, in real locations and capturing who you really are. Most importantly it is ‘your story – perfectly told’.
Family and pet portrait photography in Cheshire
We’re all adapting to life with COVID and I’m pleased to say that our lifestyle family and pet portrait sessions are pretty much like they always have been. I photograph from several metres away normally so we can socially distance with no problem at all. If you’re from the same household then there’s no real change. If it’s more than one household (and local restrictions allow) then it’s a great opportunity to get creative and use the distancing rules to create striking images that capture life in 2020.
Presentations of photos and preshoot consultations are being done using Zoom and this seems to work just as well as face to face meetings. If you’d like to make a booking, please use the link to our availability and reservations page in the box on the right and below.
Keep well and stay safe, Andrew
Why choose lifestyle portrait photography?
Our lifestyle portrait sessions truly capture the relationship between each person in the photograph, including your pets. We truly believe in the unrivalled bond that pets and their owners have; after all they are part of the family. We tailor our sessions to suit you, in familiar locations, wearing what you love (Usually casual, but occasionally formal). Our sessions are fun and aim to put you at ease, ultimately helping you to forget about the camera.
Being based in Lymm near Warrington, Cheshire, means I’m conveniently located for clients in Liverpool, Merseyside, Chester and North Wales, Manchester, Lancashire, West Yorkshire and South Cumbria.
When’s the best time to have a family portrait?
The three biggest reasons for booking a family portrait session are:
- A big family celebration – a big birthday, anniversary or a family reunion
- Time for updating your portraits – the average gap between family portraits is around eight years
- Family portraits for the first time – usually because of a new addition to the family or children starting school for the first time
