Paul Dalton Photography


A contemporary family portrait is by far one of the best ways to preserve your most precious memories. Whether you want a gorgeous large print for your wall or an elegant album for the coffee table, I will move heaven and earth to provide you with pieces of art that you'll adore for years to come.

Every session is a unique experience because every family is special in its own way. My goal to capture the family spirit in a fun and relaxed environment.


Typically, I provide family photoshoots on location. This means at your home and / or a location of your choice (for example, a local park or beach).

I will spend a little time up front getting to know more about you as a family and any specific requirements you have. We will then begin the photoshoot, getting as much of a variety of looks and locations as possible within the available time.

Each session lasts around two hours.


The most important factor when deciding what to wear is comfort. There will be a lot of standing up, sitting (and perhaps laying) down, so nothing too restrictive! I recommend avoiding strong patterns as they often clash with the background, and try not to include big branded logos (especially for children) as these can date quite quickly.

I also suggest having a couple of 'optional extra' garments that can easily be put on for taken off to help change up the style of the shoot.


The session is £199, which covers a pre-shoot consultation (by phone), the photoshoot itself, my time professionally editing approx 30 images to make them look amazing, a viewing session where you get to see all your pictures, and one 8 x 10 inch mounted print of your favourite family portrait.

Additional prints, wall art and high quality albums can be ordered to your specification. I will talk you through the various options and costings for these during your post session viewing. But to give you an idea...
