My name is Peter Nutkins. I am the family portrait photographer who creates memories that will last you a lifetime.
"My clients realise that family is their greatest treasure. My portraits stop time. They capture how special your loved ones are to you"
Family Portrait Experience
I provide more than a photo shoot. I create an experience for you to enjoy.
As a Master Family Portrait Photographer, I know how to capture you at your very best. The innocence of a child, the wisdom of a grandparent, and the love of a family.
"Imagine a portrait so important and meaningful of those that you love. That they want it hanging on the wall of their home one day."
I create more than a likeness. I capture the spirit of your loved ones. Portraits that reveal their personalities as well as their looks. The connection between you, and the love that binds you together.
Your Family Portrait Experience is not about taking a few photographs. It is about capturing lifelong memories. Memories that will make you smile every time you see them in your home.
I go one step further than other portrait photographers. I create portraits that look like paintings.
The way I create your portrait is 'painterly'. This means beautiful soft light that flatters combined with elegance and grace. Every portrait is hand edited by me.
Our Old Masters' Collection is the ultimate way to present your portrait. We present your portrait on a classic handmade canvas. You can find out more about them here: Classic Handmade Canvas
"Excellent experience from start to finish, and the photos look so good they could be paintings. A thoroughly top job, cannot recommend highly enough."

The Wonder of a Photograph
Why do we create our portraits like this?
Imagine, for a moment, your children, and grandchildren in years to come. They have re-discovered your beautiful portraits.
Visualise each of them wide-eyed and holding their breath in wonder as they hold them. They see your personality and character as well as what you looked like.
They touch the canvas and can feel the brush strokes that follow your outline. They feel the soft velvety matte cotton prints and enjoy the vibrant colours and deep blacks. It is almost as if they get to know a little of who you are, as well as what you look like.
As a portrait photographer, this is what I am thinking of when I create your artwork!
"I was concerned I wouldn’t look good in photographs... it didn’t come true. Peter was very professional and put me at ease through the whole process. It was a fun yet professional experience, you feel like you are in a studio and really feel at ease."
How Can You Get Your Family Portraits?
Step 1: Schedule A Call
I invite you to a no-obligation telephone call with me. You share with me a little about your loved ones and the kind of memories that you want to capture. I will answer your questions.
If you feel I am the family portrait photographer for you, I will be happy to help you select a date for your Experience.
I charge a Portrait Experience Fee at the time of booking. Please note our Old Masters' Collections include this fee.
You can find out more about our Collections here: portrait experience pricing. A few days before your experience I will be in contact. This allows us to discuss in more detail how we can make the most of your experience. Also, we finalise any last-minute details.
"Wow!!! I had the absolute pleasure of having my first shoot with Peter today. He is one of the most talented, professional and creative photographers that I have ever worked with. He is also extremely kind and was very easy to get along with!"
Step 2: Your Family Photographer in Your Home
Capturing your artwork takes place in your home. I will arrive at our agreed time (usually with my wife who assists me) and start setting up our studio equipment.
Don't worry, it is all professional 'on location' equipment and will not need a house remodel! We do sometimes re-arrange your furniture, but we will have discussed this beforehand. Everything goes back at the end of your session as if we had not even been there.
You can find out more about how this works here: portrait photographer that comes to your home.
"The photos are so beautiful. Thank you so much... you captured exactly what I wanted.”
Step 3: Reveal and Ordering Session
Once your experience has ended I go home and select and edit your portraits.
My signature style is 'painterly'. Every piece of art is hand-edited, in-house, by myself. I will use my camera to capture your image. Then I use those photographs to create a one-of-a-kind, handmade art piece. Our clients often comment that their finished portraits really do look like paintings!
Once your portraits are ready I come to your home to reveal them to you. You only buy what you love. No hard sales techniques. No minimum order.
When you commission us, the result is a museum-quality, handmade piece of art to enjoy in your home.
