Family Portrait Photography

You will love 🥰 the experience of your family photo shoot

At Essensi photography, we pride ourselves on our expertise of Family Portraiture. This was our first genre of portraiture photography and over many years we have perfected the art of capturing those special family moments, that people will treasure forever! This is where our passion comes from; creating something that will stand the test of time and turn your house into a home.

You will be greeted with a warm welcome by our team who are on hand to help and guide you throughout your visit, ensuring you a relaxed and hassle-free session with us.

Customers are forever telling us how much they enjoyed their shoot. Even the family members who were dragged kicking and screaming soon enter into the spirit and join in the fun. Let’s be honest the thought of having your photograph taken can be daunting for many of us, but it is a worth while experience to capture those magical moments with the full family. It’s important for you that the whole immediate family attend the session as it wouldn’t be a family portrait with a keymember missing.

Your photographers are THE EXPERTS to make you feel comfortable and position you in most flattering poses, accommodating the ability and size of your family. They are experienced in getting those cheeky smilesout of even the most shy/stubborn children, SO RELAX! It’s under control.

We don’t expect your children to be perfectly behaved, we love to see their character and let them just be themselves. We don’t want them to be nervous about where they are going. Essensi’s aim is to capture the most natural expressions so we advise not telling them too much if anything about it beforehand.

We encourage changes of outfits and props to really capture your family’s personality.

We wouldn’t want to exclude your four-legged friends so all pets 😸🐈🐕🐩 are welcome as they are obviously an important part of your family too.

You will be invited back to view your edited images at a second appointment.

Essensi Generation Shoot

Having a generation shoot is so very special 👴👵. Essensi appreciates we are creating something very special for the whole family. A priceless air loom to enjoy for years to come.

An anniversary or birthday is a great excuse to get the whole family together. This shoot typically takes about an hour and half to enable us to photograph the whole group together, each individual family group, sibling groups and all permutations.

We encourage changes of outfits and props to really capture your family’s personality. Perhaps one outfit full the full family group and a change for your individual family group. Group sizes vary we can easily accommodate up to 20 people. Props such as champagne flutes, Cakes, Balloons 🎈,Greetings cards are a great way of enhancing your celebration🎉.

Our team will be on hand to help you in any way they can to make your experience with us as enjoyable as possible.

Me and my daughter (age 4) came here for a mother and daughter photo shoot. We arrived with my husband and was made to feel very welcome. Megan did my little girls hair and a little sprinkle of pink eye shadow on my little girl “mummy I feel like a princess” this melted mine and my husbands heart from how happy she was :). Then I had my hair and makeup done the make up was amazing and I still felt like me natural but perfect natural I love being pampered and the whole experience was incredible. With the photo shoot we had laughs, giggles and big happy smiles all round. We didn’t feel awkward at all my little girl is normally quite shy with things like this but Megan brought her out of her shell immediately and she was dancing around and loving every moment and didn’t want it to end :) .
Then we came back for our view where we met Gail in a lovely setting with background music to watch the photos that we had taken by Megan . Gail was lovely and made us feel at ease we took our time talking and viewing our photos and the options with them. There was no pressure to buy any of the photos and the prices were to suit everyone’s budget . We didn’t feel in any way awkward and were very happy with our purchases and the over all experience and we can't thank you enough from all three of us :) xx
Thank you so much Amy Amos!
Molly and Django (our dogs) had a photo shoot last week and today, we went to see the finished photos. Well, what can I say.... simply amazing!! The pictures are stunning. The team are very professional and gave us loads of advice. We came out with a great deal and I can honestly say that I can’t wait to pick our pictures up. I can’t thank the team at Essensi enough. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thank you again, we now have amazing photos of our dogs, that we will truly treasure forever.
Thank you Roxanne, what an amazing review!
We had a pet photo shoot with Essensi, my daughter Chantelle and i, along with our bulldog Ibby were welcomed by a friendly team. The photo shoot was amazing, so relaxed and so much fun. It really was an enjoyable and memorable time. We left extremely happy and couldn’t wait for out appointment to view the pictures. They were all amazing, again a lovely experience, the photos were great and there was no pressure at all to purchase extras, though we did because couldn't choose between two so I chose one and Chantelle the other. We can't wait to be called to the new studio to collect out prints, and of course say hi to all the team and see the premises :) Would not hesitate to recommend Essensi they were amazing - go on, give it a go, you wont be disappointed!
Thank you Tracey!
Having just got home from our photo shoot viewing, I'm so so excited to get these photos they are everything I ever wanted and more, Gail was so helpful and patient when we were choosing which ones to have and the 2 girls during the photo shoot were amazingly patient with my breastfeeding newborn who was a bit cranky and very hungry that day!! I couldn't recommend highly enough and am so excited to get the finished product, memories we will treasure forever!
Thank you Katy, we are so glad you love your photographs!
