Peter Nutkins is the photographer that comes to your home. There is no need for you to travel to a photography studio. He brings his studio to your home to capture beautiful portraits of your family.
We are not like other family portrait photographers. We come to your home or favourite location.
Our unique approach
All the equipment you find in a portrait studio we bring right into your front room. Studio lights, modifiers, backdrops, and of course, cameras!
Sometimes we may have to re-arrange your furniture a little. Never fear, everything goes back at the end of your session as if we had never been there.
Peter and his wife give a fantastic experience. Very professional and work with you and around your time. I had a pre-natal and post-natal photoshoot done at my home of residence. They were calm and helped my five-year-old feel comfortable in taking his photos, which they did so effortlessly. I would highly recommend anyone to have Peter Nutkins as their photographer. We will be using him again.
A candid moment
No two families are alike
We capture what makes you and your loved ones special. We create your experience around your schedule, at your speed, in your home.
This means we make the memories of your loved ones that you want.
Family get-togethers are an excellent time for a portrait
The Studio At Home Advantage
A photographer coming to your home makes getting family portraits so much easier for you:
✅ There is no need for you to travel to a studio (we come to you)
✅ You are more relaxed surrounded by your everyday comforts
✅ You have your complete wardrobe on hand
✅ Your children have their favourite toys
✅ Your pets are available
✅ People can come and go as required
✅ Younger children have their nap and feeding times in familiar surroundings
✅ We can be with you as part of a bigger celebration (such as an anniversary, birthday or get-together).
"He is extremely professional, easy going and friendly. A very talented photographer who will provide you with lovely images."
It Is All About You
Your 'photographer at home experience' is all about you and your loved ones. So we work around you, your home and your routine.
Having four children of our own (and a dog), we have pretty much seen it all when it comes to having photos taken. We use all the parenting techniques in the book to help overcome the shy, the nervous, and the overexcited!
I limit my bookings to one portrait experience per day. So we can use as much or as little of your day as we need. I am not going to keep you any longer than you need (I know you’re busy). But we also don’t need to rush because of another booking.
Typically, children get tired quickly. So we bring your little ones in for shorter periods and then let them go off and play. If young ones need a nap, or the baby is restless for a feed, then being at home is the best place to be!
Many families invite their extended family and friends along to their experience too. When you have a photographer that comes to your home, all are welcome to join in and have their photograph taken!
Once we have all the photos, we pack away and leave you to settle back into your normal routine.
We offer two types of experience
Family Portraits in Your Home
We come to you and capture some amazing images. We then turn those into our painterly portraits.
Once your portraits are ready we return to your home and reveal them to you. We usually create between 20 and 30 portraits. We design everything we make to last at least a lifetime.

The Old Masters’ Collections
Our collections all include our classic portrait canvas. These are not available from the high street, and as far as we know any other UK photographer.
From Vermeer to the mighty Michelangelo, you get a one-of-a-kind, handmade art piece!

Getting Your Family Portrait Photographer
We value working with families to create the special memories they want. We like to be as clear as we can be and do not like 'hard sales' or 'small print'.
Many of our clients have found it helpful to talk through the portraits that they would love to have. In this way, we can give them a good idea of costs beforehand.
If you would like us to give you a call let us have your number, and a good time to call, and we can have a no-obligation chat.
"I had a great photo shoot for my two boys... [Peter] worked brilliantly with the boys and even got them to sit still!! He gave them time and made them laugh. A thoroughly good experience with Fantastic photos as a result. Would recommend to everyone!"
