Family & Portrait Photographer Galway | Photography Session in your own home or outdoors
Family and portrait photography shoots may take place in your own home and/or at a venue, e.g. a park nearby. The family photography session typically lasts about 2 hours, but I don't place a limit on it... getting the images you need is more important than watching the clock. I don't photograph studio type or overly posted images, I simply capture your family interacting together during a fun photo shoot. Families may range from young children to older families looking to have a family portrait taken with their parents or grandparents. I don't shoot in the studio, I'm not a big fan of studio type photos, I prefer the vibrant colour and imagery when photographing outdoors. When shooting outdoors, people are more at ease, children play around more the end result is much more natural photos.
Family photographer sessions are €200 and include all of the digital images in facebook size & large print sizes.

Family Portraits Galway | A typical shoot
I try to photograph in two locations if possible, the client's home & an outdoor location, this may even be your back garden. This provides a nice mixture of final images and provides an opportunity to make a wardrobe change if photographing kids. I tend to not overly pose people, rather give direction where required. You can expect to have delivery of your images about 4-5 days after the shoot. All images are professionally edited before handing to the client. You'll receive a download link to your completed set of images as well as a DVD copy. You may share this download link with family and friends should you wish to send them a copy of the images.

Printing & framing your photos
I'm a big fan of large prints, as such I shoot with two Nikon D800 camera bodies, these provide massive 36megapixel images which can be printed out at various sizes from 5" by 7" prints right up to 16inch by 24inch and beyond. There are many online services which can be used to print your photos (I'll provide details when providing you with your images) and I highly recommend The Framing Loft in Galway who provide a bespoke framing service.
