The 12 Best Family Photographers in Liverpool
There are so many great Liverpool family photographers that it wasn’t easy narrowing them down to just twelve. But we triumphed by picking artists who each had a distinctive style and who would please a range of clients. Whether you are looking for traditional wall art family photos or an in-home photojournalist-style session, we think you will find the perfect photographer on this list!
1. Grace Kellie
As a Liverpool family photographer, Kellie has grown her business from a small, in-home studio to a massive celebrity following and an entire photographic team. Her downtown studio has the best of both worlds — bright, natural light and a whole set of strobes — for different effects, both equally suited to portraits. She also works various backgrounds to let your shoot be whatever you want it — solid colors for those seeking a contemporary style and playful for those with big imaginations. If you are looking for an adaptable and professional photographer with an extensive selection of looks for your shoot, look no further.
Rachel Clarke is one super talented photographer specializing in two of the hardest areas of photography — newborns and weddings. Since she’s dealing with irreplaceable moments and memories, she has to be adaptable, calm, and, most importantly, make consistently beautiful images. She does all this, so her clients can be confident they are in good hands. Her compatible specialties allow her to grow with your family, from your special day with your spouse all the way through maternity, newborn shoots, and cake smash photos celebrating milestone birthdays. Her style is streamlined — keeping the focus on the subject — with perfect playful touches. And we love it!
If you want a lifestyle vibe in your family portraits, Steven Rooney may be your dream photographer. Instead of carefully directing your family into poses, he allows your family to be themselves in all of their wonderful quirkiness and captures the purely you moments that ensue. Since his style is more relaxed, you will have real mementos of your time together instead of perfect portraits with every hair in place. But it’s this style that will allow you to relive the feeling of the day every time you look at your portraits.
4. Renata Kate
Renata is on a mission to empower mothers to live fully actualized lives and take some beautiful portraits along the way. As a Liverpool family photographer, she documents all stages of a family’s journey from maternity through the teen years and beyond. As an educator and coach, she helps other women live their passion as artists. Her photographic style is simplicity at its finest — just her subjects, a plain studio background or a minimalist outdoor one, and her talented eye.
5. Katie Dervin
As a noted wedding photographer, she was counted among the UK’s 50 best for three years in a row. Katie Dervin also stands out for her family photography. She has a documentary style, working with families in their homes for a portrait experience that is personal and real. She’s one of our favorites for the authenticity of her work — people just living their lives — but also for the beauty that she captures, elevating the simplest kiss into a work of art.
With a passion for creating timeless wall art, Victoria creates breathtaking images full of life and beauty. Her artistic eye guides her to take portraits without showing the full subject, creating a story without extemporaneous details. There is a retro flair to her work, enhancing the timeless feeling while also harking back to our own childhood photos and bringing the emotion and wonder of childhood to the surface.
7. Shea Studio
Olivia fell in love with photographing children while working at a summer camp, and it’s her love of both her craft and her subjects that elevates her work. She brings the studio to you, whether in an outdoor location or your home, for a contemporary feeling to your family portraits. While creating sets has its place, she prefers to let the naturalness of your family’s interaction be the centerpiece of her work.
Natasha Green puts her photography degree to work by showcasing her whimsical fine art portraits of babies and children. If you want your portraiture to have a unique flair to it, check out her work. You will find that custom-made sets and fantastical editing make each portrait a work of art. We especially love her use of glowing light to amp up the angelic factor of her portraits and give them an oil painting feeling.
Just outside of Liverpool in Merseyside, photographer and digital artist Abigail Nevitt caught our eye with her creativity — no stale, traditional photography here! Instead, she plays with technique and editing for artistic portraits while keeping her eye out for authentic moments of bonding between her subjects. Her portfolio strikes the perfect balance between making each shoot personalized and capturing the details that make your family your world.
10. Nicole Matthews
Nicole Matthews loves people. Her fascination with the human face and the art of getting her subjects to show their personalities is evident throughout her work. She is an internationally published portrait and a wrangler of even the fussiest toddlers. Easy-going and relaxed, her own personality comes through her work — tousled hair, joyful grins, and photos that touch the heart. She is the perfect fit for you if you want a photo session that doesn’t feel like work. Her expertise and her artist’s eye, combined with her big heart, all make your session a breeze and assure you the results will be equally delightful.
Eve Labeque has honed her eye for detail by shooting weddings. Combined with her love of beauty, this skill led her to her highest calling as a Liverpool family photographer specializing in newborns and babies. She says, “I love taking photos of tiny toes and tiny lips in delicate and textured fabrics,” and her passion for simple styling and all of the sweetness inherent in photographing new life is evident throughout her work. She keeps her sets refined by using neutral color palettes and soft textures, perfect for enhancing a baby’s skin.
12. Mike Noble
If you want documentary portraits of your family in your home, Mike Noble is here to give you exactly what you want. The key to his style is its naturalness — there are no backgrounds or cheesy smiles to be seen — and this authenticity allows for emotional family portraits. While perfection isn’t on the menu when you work with him, the feeling is what it is to be with the people you love most in the place you love most. Absolutely beautiful!
