Family Photography Manchester

Words can not express the joy of new life

With a fresh approach to family portrait photography, I create images full of emotion and beautiful reality in Manchester, Cheshire, and beyond.  I believe wholeheartedly in the power of print and the treasure of a family heirloom and provide a carefully curated line of exceptional artwork for your home.

Each of my portrait sessions is as unique as the family I’m photographing.

Your experience

A deeper connection during your family photo shoot

Your family photography experience begins with a creative consultation that will give me an understanding of the special elements that make your family uniquely yours. By truly getting to know your family I’m able to help you distill what it is you want to capture during your family session and ensure that I create timeless images that truly capture the personalities and connections within your family.


Full service designed to your needs

Every family photography session begins with a final product in mind. During your creative consultation I’ll help you plan how you’d like to display your portraits and design your session accordingly. From what colors to wear to where to hang your finished wall art, I am with you every step of the way to ensure that you love your images and your finished artwork.

No-stress during the family photography session

Your family photography is thoughtfully planned and designed to be an enjoyable and stress-free experience. The photoshoot takes place in my Manchester professional portrait studio. I know that every child is different and make sure to go at a pace that is comfortable for your family. I build in plenty of breaks and never impose a time limit. During your session my assistant and I will take care of everything – especially making sure the kids are having fun – so that you can relax and reconnect with your family. My clients constantly tell me that the session was surprisingly fun for them and a treasured time to slow down and enjoy their family.

Are your kids a bit older and suddenly you realised time does fly indeed, and the cliché we keep hearing from our parents and grandparents is actually true? Would you like to capture some timeless portraits of your family, before they move on to have a family of their own? Let us freeze this moment in time for you.
Come and visit us for a family session!
You will be invited back to my studio one to two weeks after your session to view your final gallery of approximately 15 beautifully enhanced and fully edited images. It’s at this point when you may decide which package you may want to purchase.
I don’t charge for the shoot itself. It is entirely free to attend the shoot and have pictures taken of you and your family. At no time are you are under any obligation to purchase a single image if you don’t wish to, in that case the shoot will have cost you nothing. Should you, however, wish to order, due to the time involved in processing, ordering and printing etc. or creating the multiple versions of files for USB there is a minimum order fee of £399.
£99 non refundable retainer required in order to secure your booking. This will be deducted from your final order.
Due to the size of my studio, family sessions can include up to 6 members only.

Importance of prints

All of the images are printed onto the best quality paper. In addition to the prints you receive within your chosen package, you can order additional prints of your favourite photos. We offer professional grade prints as standard. The high quality Pro Lab prints can also be upgraded to Fine Art Prints.

Your digital images are presented in high resolution on a USB drive. The digital file collections all include printing rights.

I understand that having the flexibility of buying the digital files allows you to produce prints, enlargements and albums. However, I firmly believe that the beautiful images we are going to create deserve to be displayed using only the best quality products. Additional prints can be purchased at the viewing.

We had a fantastic experience working with Dora and would highly recommend her.
She was punctual with email responses and really helpful and flexible in the initial planning stages

Dora edited our shots quickly & she created a beautiful video with music showcasing the photos, I sobbed they were so stunning! Dora is extremely talented, we will certainly be back for more photos when our baby is older. We would 100% recommend her…
