Family portrait at Port Sunlight

I love family portrait sessions I took on Wirral, especially because I could do something a bit different. It’s a good time to do this blog post because the BBC has just released series five of Peaky Blinders.

I went to Wallasey on Wirral at the end of September last year to do a family portrait session. They were a lovely family with a young son.

They had this amazing little outfit for him. This meant we could do a children’s portrait session with a difference. And we could use some of Wirral’s most iconic locations as backdrops for

Wirral has brilliant locations

We looked at styling and effects which were in keeping with the clothes and with the 1920s. I’m not keen on sepia photos and they’re nothing new. However sepia was the perfect treatment for this portrait session. We chose very traditional gold and bronze frames to complete the final look.

We talked about where the best locations would be to take the photos. There are so many fantastic locations to take portraits on the Wirral that date back to the 1920’s or before. We were spoiled for choice. In the end we settled on The Lady Lever Art Gallery at Port Sunlight and Hadlow Road Station in Willaston which is part of Wirral Country Park. Although both locations are very different they gave us perfect backdrops for the style of photos I wanted to create.

I design each family portrait session personally for each client to reflect their taste, style and budget. My photographs are beautifully presented in individually designed bespoke frames and albums. If you’d like a family portrait session to give as a gift this Christmas or as a treat for yourselves, you can reserve a session and arrange a phone consultation with no obligation through our reservations page or you can call us on 01925 471091.
