Thanet Family Photography

As a Family Photographer in the district of Thanet in Kent, my approach to family photography is exactly the same approach I use for my wedding couples. I shoot in a relaxed way, making my clients feel like they can be themselves and then in turn I capture their personalities.

I first decided to pick up a camera when my first child was born, I quickly realised once I asked them to pose, or say cheese, the moment was gone and they'd run off! I've learnt how to capture moments as they happen and I pride myself on being fully confident of being able to freeze in time their personalities.

If you'd like to book a family photography sessions please contact me here where we can discuss your needs. Alternatively I do sell physical gift vouchers for these sessions which will make a great birthday or Christmas present for your loved ones, which you can find here.

The hour long session is only £150 and includes at least 30 edited high resolution images and no hidden costs.

I've been asked if I have a photography studio. I do would be nice having an office to edit in, but that's all it would be used for. I pride myself on being a photographer who uses the amazing outdoors for my family photography. 

5 reasons to choose a outdoor family photographer

Fun Locations

As a family photographer who is rather fond of natural light, I love the colours of nature, especially compared to a boring white studio background. Not that having a photography studio is a bad thing, far from it. It's just not my style. Having developed my own wedding photographer style, I like to transfer it over into my natural family photography. 

Capturing the real you

Families are unique, your relationships with each other, how you interact with each other...even right down to your dress sense! That is your family, and you're unique. This is why I love taking photos in a natural way, unposed, capturing your unique personalities in my photography.

I capture your kids qwuirks. 

You can expect a gallery full of photos of your kids enjoying the moment. There's a puddle? Hell yea, jump in it. There's a tree? Hell yea, climb it. 

You'll look at them for years to come.

How often do you all go out as a family and spend some quality time together? If its rare, imagine how valuable those memories will be once the flock leaves the nest. 

Amazing print quality

My gallerys are full of high resolution photos, which can be printed LARGE. They will be amazing home decor for years to come. 

  • "We had a family photo shoot this afternoon and can’t recommend James highly enough. His professional and calm approach ensured we were all relaxed and at times didn’t even notice him taking the photos! Thank you for a great experience and capturing such special photos"
  • "We had a family photo shoot that James is now offering & it was amazing! So much fun, the girls loved it. It was like he wasn’t there & we got so many lovely pictures it’s so hard to choose between them! We wanted mostly natural & got some great shots even of our 20month old who never stays still! Wonderful pictures to treasure forever, Thank you so much James xx Would highly recommend Pearce Photography 😊"
