Sian T. Photography - Family Portrait Photographer, Surrey
Beautifully simple portraits of your family, capturing their unique style and personality
I take a lighthearted, informal approach to family photography that's designed to be relaxed and fun for parents, teens and kids alike. I truly believe that it's best to just be yourselves to get great family photos and while I take care to get the best light and best positions, what really counts is the genuine smile that comes from real enjoyment.
Whether we are in the studio, at your home or outside, my aim is to create a fun, relaxed atmosphere that captures everyone at their natural best and ensures we get stress free, beautiful images that will last a lifetime.
The beautiful Surrey Hills make a stunning backdrop to many of my family photography sessions - perfect if your kids like to run or you're bringing along the family dog as well. If you prefer an indoor venue I have a small studio in Cranleigh with a variety of backdrops which is perfect for one or two people or I have use of a larger studio nearby which can also be booked at a small extra cost.
After your session you can purchase prints, wallart such as canvases and/or digital versions of your favourite images and all family photography sessions come with some optional complimentary, branded images that are perfect for sharing on social media so that you can quickly show your friends and family how gorgeous your family is!
Dogs are always welcome on family photography sessions, they are part of the family after all! I always carry a squeaker in my pocket and there are plenty of safe places in the Surrey Hills for photographing furry friends too - plus it's a surefire way to get a laugh from the kids as they watch me chasing the dog!

Teens, young adults and even those 'children' in their early twenties can be the most reluctant sitters! My approach is always gentle and encouraging but humorous at the same time. The best portraits are the ones that are truly 'them' so I like to spend a few minutes talking about how they want to look so that we can create images they will be proud of.
Images that show young people at their best can give them a real confidence boost and are fantastic to mark special occasions like birthdays, prom, graduations and sporting achievement.
These sessions can be incorporated into sessions with younger family members or booked on their own so whether they want a classy, professional image for their social media or sporting profile, or you'd like the whole family together, I'm sure we can create something everyone will love
