Family Portrait Photographer Peterborough 

Capturing & preserving your precious family memories forever

Family are without a doubt the most important factor in a person's life which is why if you wandered through most homes there will be more pictures of family hanging on the walls than anything else.  

Children grow up so quickly and before you know it they have flown the nest, starting new families of their own.  Alas, we also know that parents and grandparents won't be around for ever, such is life's plan.  But, imagine having those precious memories of your family captured as a beautiful piece of art, taking pride of place in your living room or dining room.  An emotional investment to be handed down through generations as a family heirloom, admired and loved by family and friends forever.  

I am a unique family portrait photographer in Peterborough providing a professional service to families either in their own home or at a meaningful location of their choice in and around the Peterborough, Cambridgeshire.  If you can't think of anywhere, no problem, I have many beautiful locations that will provide stunning settings for your photographs. 

Please have a look through my family portrait portfolio to see examples of my work and read through the rest of this page to see why you should choose me as your family photographer. 

"We had an autumn mini session with Alan for our family with two small children.  Alan was passionate, professional and understood the challenges with little ones!  The shoot, viewing and delivery were excellent and we are so happy with our prints.  We would 100% recommend Alan and will use him in the future to capture our family."

Gemma & Steve - Yaxley

"Thank you Alan for capturing magical moments in the Bluebells with our little ones. The experience was relaxed and just right for a 2, 3 and 5 year old. We have beautiful photos to cherish, I would certainly recommend you and your photography to others!"

Kimberley Goldsmith, Bury St Edmunds

"Thank you so much for the amazing photographs of our little family! We have never done anything like this before so were a bit uncertain of what to expect but Alan totally put us at ease and had so many ideas for both locations (stunning!) and how to get a tiny person to look at the camera (genius!), we really enjoyed the shoot and were totally blown away by the photographs. Our family and friends loved them too and they have made excellent presents for relatives. We have already had friends asking who took such beautiful photographs and we have not hesitated to recommend Alan for his professionalism, talent and value for money. Thank you again Alan for the photographs that we will always love looking back at."

With several family photographers in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire & Rutland, why should you choose me as your family photographer?

This is a very good question and one you should be asking. My answer to this  is as follows: 

I provide an alternative photography service

There are many family photographers in Peterborough that appear to differentiate themselves by price only.  If you look through their portfolios you will probably see many of the same shots, i.e. the family sitting on the floor against a white background.  There is absolutely nothing wrong with this if that is the style you are looking for, however, experience has shown me that if given the option, families much prefer something different to this, something that offers uniqueness and special meaning.  Well... this is what I am offering you. 


If you are not totally satisfied with the photographs taken on your shoot, I will offer you a free session to remedy the problem. I will also happily reschedule your session at no extra charge in the case of bad weather conditions.  

Quality images

Each and every image I capture is carefully enhanced with professional software to ensure that you receive only the very best quality photographs. 

You decide on the location 

I don't work from a studio, therefore you won't be limited to a single location with a limited choice of backdrops.  You can choose a location that's meaningful to you, whether it be your favorite picnic spot or at home in your own garden, the choice is yours.  But, don't worry, if you don't have anywhere in mind, I will have plenty of suggestions for you once I get to know you a little and learn what you enjoy doing as a family.  

A free no obligation consultation

I prefer to meet with all my clients before accepting a booking.  This is so I can get a full understanding of your requirements and expectations for your family portrait session.  It gives us both the chance to get to know each other a little, to ensure that I am the right photographer for you and that you feel comfortable working with me.  This is also when we will discuss prices and packages to ensure there are no nasty surprises at the end of the process once you have fallen in love with your photographs.  

No time limit

You won't be restricted to 30 minutes or an hour.  I want you to enjoy the experience and feel relaxed throughout your session so I can capture the perfect shots and present you with photographs that you will simply adore.  I understand that children and babies are not robots and that we may need to break from time to time for nappy changes, feeds and quite possibly even tears and tantrums.  Not a problem.  

I'm insured

I am fully covered with Public Liability Insurance and Professional Indemnity Insurance.  There are a surprising amount of family photographers out there that don't bother with insurance.  Whether you go with me or another family photographer in Peterborough, you should always ensure that they are fully insured before you hand over a penny.

In person sales consultation 

An in person sales consultation is a fantastic opportunity to get professional guidance on choosing the most appropriate styles and sizes of printed products for the desired locations within your family home.  I offer this as part of all my family photography sessions.

"We asked Alan to do an outdoor photography shoot in winter for our family, Alan had his work cut out with a nine month old baby and a grumpy two year old daughter on the day but still managed to capture some lovely photos of both our children and family shots alike.

Alan combined the shoot very well by listening to what we wanted but also suggesting some creative and alternative ideas on photos making good use of natural light and surroundings, at no time did we feel pressured or on a time clock.

The resulting photos are of very good quality and made wonderful gifts for our parents, overall I would recommend Alan to anyone looking for a friendly professional photographer."

The price of your family photography investment

I use the term investment rather than fees or prices because that is exactly what it is.... an investment.  A family portrait is a piece of art; a family heirloom to be treasured by your future generations. 

Family photography sessions start from £59 and include as standard:

  • A non-restrictive photography session in a location of your choice within 20 miles of Peterborough
  • Complimentary high resolution digital image of your choice
  • Private, password protected client gallery to view all your images once they have been professionally retouched 
  • Option to purchase additional prints, framed wall products and digital images via an in person sales consultation* or online store

*In person sales consultations provide the client with an excellent opportunity to get guidance on which print products and sizes would best suit individual family homes. 

A full price list is available at your free no obligation consultation which you can arrange by calling me on 07776 154698. Alternatively you can request a price list via the form on my contact page. 

"We arranged a family photo shoot with Alan as we wanted some nice pictures of our 9 month old daughter, Chloe. We weren't very specific about what we wanted, but Alan made some great suggestions for location and the types of shots he could take, and the final photos gave us a perfect selection of natural shots and more posed family portraits - we were really happy with them! Alan was very professional and enthusiastic, and made us feel at ease. His service was efficient and we felt he offered great value for money, we would definitely recommend him."

Alex & Clare - Newmarket

"Thank you so much for the professional and friendly service you recently provided our family. We really enjoyed the initial photo shoot so much that we knew we wanted to capture further memories once our little boy was walking.  The photos are fantastic and they have been used to create some great Christmas presents for grandparents and large prints around our home.  We had so much fun doing both of the shoots with you and look forward to using you again in the future.  Cheers Alan "

Michelle & Phil - Gunthorpe, Peterborough
