It all starts with you
Here at Origin Studios we take our time to really get to know the families that we photograph, many of whom we are have now seen multiple times over the years. It's important we create portraits that meet and exceed what you are looking for whatever that may be and if you're not sure we have plenty of ideas! Family portraits can be an intimate natural portrait, a formal group shot, a highly stylised fashion style shoot, an emotional photo that tugs at the heartstrings or just something natural and fun. Every family is different and we strive to capture that in our family portraits.
CAPTURE THE ESSENCE
Ian has shot a number of sessions for us and our extended family. He works really hard to make sure that the pictures capture the essence of the people, is innovative in his approach and the finished product is fabulous.
(Because familes come in all shapes and sizes!)
We have photographed families of all different sizes and compositions over the years. The largest studio shoot was a family that included twenty seven people with five different generations from a baby to a great great grandfather. But equally a family can be just two people or even one person and a beloved pet. Our studio is perfectly suited for either and anything in between!
These are some of our favourite shoots and we always allow plenty of time so that we can take the many different combinations that our clients want. These are often the hardest to schedule with multiple families but provide a great opportunity to create an heirloom portrait of your whole family.
We understand that sometimes it's just great photos of your children that you want and we totally get that, whether they are newborn babies, teenagers or anything in between we can make them look amazing or perhaps just how you want to remember them when they aren't around!
We said families come in all shapes and sizes even if it's only the two of you and that can even be just you and your pet, whatever family is to you we'll capture it for you.
What makes us different
We try harder!
We deliberately limit the number of photo sessions we do to ensure that every one of our clients gets an amazing experience. Every shoot is like a performance designed to get the best out of you and your family. We appreciate you don't step in front of a camera every day and likely don't get the whole family together for a photo shoot very often so we look to create an enjoyable experience and award winning images on every shoot, or at the very least photos you will be delighted to hang on your wall!
The best photo experience ever!!! ...my dad's face at the viewing was priceless...so many amazing shots, Ian is now our official family photographer!
The photo shoot is just the start
Once the shoot is over we will book you in to come back to view the finished photos and order your finished products. This is secretly our favourite bit - the pressure is off and we love to see your reactions!

Ian did some wonderful shots of our daughter, we've had professional photos done in the past but Ian's photos were far and away the best. He has a fantastic eye for a good picture and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ian to anyone wanting a family photoshoot.
FAMILY PHOTO SHOOT FAQ's
What should WE WEAR?
Clothes preferably but I guess they aren't compulsory! Actually it really depends what sort of look you are going for but in our opinion, similar styles together with toning and coordinating outfits as a family does create better family photos . We can advise you before your shoot in more detail.
HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN WE BRING ALONG?
Everyone is welcome, as we mentioned the current record is 27 but please let us know in advance if you're considering a large group so we can allow more time and stock up the biscuits!
HOW LONG IS THE SHOOT ?
The short answer is as long as it takes but usually 1-2 hours depending on number of people, number of outfits etc. Don't worry we find for most people, us included, the time usually flies by!
I have some great IDEAS FOR A PHOTO?
That's great, we always enjoy planning the shoot with our clients in advance and although we have plenty of ideas of own it's lovely when we can work together to create something really personal.
