We recently welcomed the Seabright brothers to the studio for a photo shoot experience. Mum had won a Family Photo Shoot gift voucher at their school’s Christmas fete, that we had donated to.
The brother’s, aged 7 and 5, stepped out in front of the camera looking very dapper indeed in bow ties. Phil had great fun with the boys, even getting shots of them hugging (not strangling) each other. Whilst they changed in to a more casual outfit, we changed the backdrop to get some great shots on the blue.
When mum, dad and the boys returned to view the photos, they were all over the moon. After a lot of debating, they managed to select their absolute favourites to take pride of place on their wall at home.
This Christmas, bring your family to the Philip Charles Photography studio to update your family portrait.
Not only do you get to place beautiful portraits of your family on your wall, the photos make excellent Christmas gifts for the rest of the family, especially the Grandparents.
During the one hour session, you will receive the full photo shoot experience, which is enjoyed by everyone, even the most camera shy, and the ‘I don’t like having my picture taken’ one’s amongst you. With a variety of coloured backdrops and Phil’s many years of experience, we will produce a stunning collection of images for you to choose from. A separate changing is available, therefore you are welcome to bring a change of outfit. Maybe bring along a Christmas jumper?
Here’s just a few images from the Stephen’s photo shoot session.
We recently welcomed the Hughes family to the studio for two separate photo shoots, a couple’s shoot and a shoot for the kids.
We did the couple’s shoot first, which most importantly was to get some amazing portraits of the happy couple, but also as a taster ahead of the kids shoot a couple of weeks later. One of the family members experiences anxiety and was very nervous about the photo shoot session. Coming for the couple’s shoot allowed them to experience our photo shoot session and explain in detail when they got home of what to expect and the process.
On the day of the kids shoots, they all arrived looking very smart indeed, ready to strike a pose. Mum came in for the first couple of shots to ensure everyone was happy, which they all were. Phil soon had them all laughing and relaxing in front of the camera. He even managed to get a few shots of the 16 year old smiling, even mum said she forgot he had teeth!
Both shoots were great fun, which resulted in fantastic images that everyone loves. Here’s just a few from the two shoots.
Special Father’s Day Gift Ideas for Dad to Cherish
Don’t forget, this year’s Father’s Day is Sunday 17th June 2018.
If you are looking for something different and more special to give Dad this year, a family photo of his little cherubs (or monsters) is sure to bring a tear to his eye.
You can bring the family along in secret and surprise him at the studio just before the shoot, or you can give him one of our Gift Vouchers. Our photo shoot sessions are fun and relaxed, with plenty of laughter. Even the most camera shy will enjoy the experience.
This Father’s Day, Give Dad the Precious Gift of Family Portraits
Have you sat at your parents house enjoying a cuppa and thought, they really need to update that family photo taken over 10 years ago? This Father’s Day is the ideal time to treat dad to a photo shoot session with the whole family.
As families grow and the grandchildren arrive, grandparents really do cherish this time. They love coming to our studio to freeze this moment in time. Over the years we have welcomed many families, and returning families, to update their photos. All generations have come from newborn up to 100 years. Our studio can comfortably accommodate 15 adults, therefore we are sure to fit the largest of families.
During the photo shoot session, we also break the group down to smaller groups to capture all of the families. Making this a perfect time for not just for Dad to receive a photo of the whole family, but you can also update your own family pictures. Below are a few images from our recent shoots with all the generations.

Whether it’s for a special occasion or you just want to get the whole family together for a photo shoot session, the Philip Charles studio can comfortably shoot up to 15. Therefore, you can bring along the whole family from the oldest member to the youngest. We recently welcomed the Inglis family to the Philip Charles Studio to update their large family pictures.
All of the generations came along to capture their growing family. We started the shoot with the main shot of the whole family together in different set ups. We then broke it down into smaller family groups, the children and the couples. Once you become Mum and Dad, Grandma and Grandad, you often forget that you are a couple too. We always include couple shots in to our sessions to get lovely portraits of just the two of you. The Inglis family were brilliant to work with and embraced the whole experience. Below are just a few of the images from their shoot.

Professional Family Pictures of all the Grandchildren
Just before Christmas, a couple were surprised by their children with a studio photo shoot session for professional family pictures. The session was booked for the two of them with all of their grandchildren.
The gift was extra special as some of the grandchildren live in New Zealand, and were in the UK for the first time in some years. On the day of the shoot, it was the first opportunity some of the cousins had seen each other. I am sure you can imagine how much excitement there was in the studio. It was lovely seeing the family together. With all the excitement still in the air (and that a curry was waiting at home for them all to enjoy afterwards), we cracked on with the session.
There were nine grandchildren and the grandparents. Every member of the family were brilliant to work with, allowing Phil to position them in every way he asked. Therefore, enabled him to capture a really good variety of images to choose from. At the viewing session, the grandparents chose their favourite image to be framed for pride of place on their wall. A truly special photograph for them to cherish for years to come.
Below are a few of the images to demonstrate our set ups. If you would like more information on family pictures, please click to visit our page. To book your photo shoot session, call the studio on 01827 215 707, or scroll down and complete the enquiry form.
What to Expect from our Family Photo Shoot Sessions
We’ve mentioned a lot in our posts, we love family photo shoot sessions! From a small family of 3 to a large family of 15. As every family is different, every photo shoot session is different. There is no set format, poses or structure we use, as we tailor every session to suit the family.
When you arrive for your session, Phil has a chat with you to find out what type of photographs you want. Don’t worry, if you need some help or guidance, Phil will offer suggestions. With his years of experience, Phil knows how to get the best smiles from everyone and every age. We cater for every style of photograph, from a structured set up, to the family relaxing and laughing.
Following the photo shoot session, which is normally around an hour, you will be invited back a few days later to view your images with me (Vicky). We take our time going through your collection of photos, selecting your favourites and how to present them. This can be frames choosing from our wide selection of mouldings, canvas, and prints. Can’t decide which ones to pick? You can have them all on a disk with rights to print.
Our aim and mission is for everyone that steps in to the studio enjoys the experience from start to finish. Therefore resulting in amazing photographs you are proud to hang on your walls. Below are some images from a recent photo shoot session, which was great fun. Especially with this little lady striking her pose that Victoria Beckham would be jealous of.
The booking fee for a family photo shoot is only £20. To book your photo shoot session, call the studio on 01827 215 707, or scroll down and complete the enquiry form.
