Family & Child Portraits

Where life begins and love never ends

 

 

 

We are taking more and more photos of ourselves and of our children now we have the ease of our mobile phone cameras. However, the problem with the camera phone pictures is you can’t really print them at a very good resolution and they just end up sitting in our phones so it is important to get updated family photos taken professionally.

I offer these as 1 hour studio sessions or outdoor sessions at a location of your choice. I like to take beautiful family photographs to capture your family’s personalities.  Due to the size of my studio, I can only include up to 6 people.   If you are wanting more people to be included in the session, please send me a message to discuss your options.

Once you are booked in for your family photoshoot, I invite you to come to the studio for a consulation.  Here we will discuss colour schemes and ideas that you may have as well as outfits and props for the session.

 

At different times in the year, I do offer mini sessions. These are a great way of getting those professional photographs without having a longer session time. Mini sessions are usually in Spring (Mother’s Day, Easter and Bluebells), Father’s Day, Summer, Autumn and Christmas. 

Mini sessions are announced on my Facebook page so make sure you follow me to get the latest offers.

Following the family photoshoot, you will be invited back to the studio to view your beautiful images.  The gallery will be of approximately 15 fully edited, high resolution images for you to choose from.  Once you have seen your gallery you may make your choice.  I do not charge for the session – it is completely free for you to come and have your photographs taken.  You may decide you do not want to purchase any of the images from your family photoshoot.  If this is the case, the experience will have cost you nothing.  If you decide you love the images and would like to purchase some, I do have a minimum spend of £249.  You may wish to order only wall art, or a handful of prints or digitals as opposed to one of my packages listed below.  Providing the minimum spend is met, the order can be placed.  

A £99 non refundable session retainer is required upon booking to secure your family photoshoot.  Your retainer will be deducted from the order you place at the viewing session.

We booked Nicki for a maternity photoshoot and a newborn photoshoot. We got some lovely photos from both which lots of people have complimented. One of my favourite photos of both my husband and me and of Evie came from these photoshoots. Nicki was very accommodating and she even managed to incorporate our dog into both sessions. Thanks again Nicki xx

Huge thank you Nicki for Elsie's stunning newborn photoshoot. You're amazing, you went above & beyond to accommodate our stubborn uncooperative fur baby into the pictures too with her (thanks for your patience) . Beautiful pictures we will treasure forever thank you Very professional & helpful, I highly recommend!

I cannot recommend Nicki Byrne Photography highly enough. The photoshoot was a really enjoyable experience, Nicki has such good ideas for baby poses and backgrounds and my baby was very relaxed and content throughout. Seeing the final edited photos was so exciting, Nicki is so creative with her work and I am so impressed! The problem now is choosing our favourite photos!

Quality of service. she made customers welcome and babies relaxed. she also took her time preparing babies not rushing or stressing out parents either. photo session continued with ease 🙂

Nicki photographed our little boy when he was just 13 days old - she was so professional but friendly and understanding which was so nice and made us feel at ease. The photos are wonderful and are the perfect keepsake for us to remember our tiny newborn. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Nicki for a newborn photo shoot. Thanks again Nicki x

My little girl had her photos done by Nicki when she was 8 days old. I have just received the photos and have to say I’m over the moon with how they have turned out! While Martha-rose was having her shoot we was made to feel so welcomed by Nicki, I would definitely use Nicki again for any type of shoot as I feel that she in an amazing photographer and I would highly recommend her! Thank you again for your work! Xx

- Bethany -

We had a great experience with Nicki. She was super flexible, making sure we got the style of photos we were after, she was great with my 5 month old (and the difficult toddler) and the photos were even better than we imagined. thanks Nicki - we will be back for a mini-shoot soon!

- Catherine -

Nicki did an excellent job photographing my family back in October for an Autumn mini shoot! We met in the park (and we were all prepared with what to wear- Nicki sent through a really helpful guide!). Nicki took some gorgeous photos of us all and we have used them to give as our Grandparent's Christmas presents - they were all absolutely delighted (and hence why I haven't recommended until AFTER Christmas!) Nicki is extremely friendly, relaxed with the children and very talented at capturing beautiful shots- memories to keep forever. Thank you Nicki
