Family Portrait Photography

Lorcan is a leading specialist in capturing professional family portraits from small to extended family groups, in a warm, relaxed, friendly environment and at affordable prices. He is renowned for his ability in dealing with all age groups including those with special needs.

Before your sitting, we recommend you visit our studio to see the impressive quality, product range, sizes and prices available. Lorcan will discuss your priorities and advise you in preparation for your special family portrait.

PORTRAIT SITTING

Your portrait sitting includes the taking of a number of family combinations e.g. full family, children together and any special requests in classical and contemporary photographic styles. Casual clothes in plain pastel colours work best, avoid strong colours or distracting patterns and bare feet look best for kids. Allow up to 60 minutes for your sitting.

CHRISTENING / COMMUNION / CONFIRMATION / GRADUATION

A popular option is to arrange your portrait sitting here on a separate day, when you're all more relaxed and not concerned about timing and entertaining guests.

If on the ceremony day, we recommend arranging your studio sitting here between the church and restaurant / home catering. You can include grandparents and godparents in the photo shoot and adds an extra special event to the day.

For graduations, we have a traditional black graduation cap and black gown available here in the studio at no extra cost. You'll need to source your own unique qualification hood if required.
