Family photography that throws out the awkward and brings in the fun around bristol

It is amazing how fast your little ones grow up, so why wait?  Don't settle for the standard photos of your family on a clinical plain backdrop. It is time to take the family to the Clifton Suspension Bridge or another cool Bristol location - why not your own home - to level up your traditional family imagery to pure awesome! Let's get the kids together, and why not the grandparents too, for photographs around the incredible city of Bristol. It is time to capture some precious memories that not only yourselves in the present, but children and grandchildren will treasure for life. Together we'll tell the real stories of your family. Together we'll re-write the portrait photographic rules with amazing authentic imagery with a huge dollop of fun

Hey, I'm Gavin, and now you've found your Bristol family photographer, let's start capturing your unmissable moments together.

SOUNDS GREAT but we don't live in Bristol!

Send me a message anyway as I am happy to travel, be it Bath, The Cotswolds or further afield.

A Sneak peak of Family Photography portfolio

My bespoke family photography shoots can be done as a smaller taster session or an extended photography shoot at a location of your choice around Bristol or nearby.

When people talk newborn photography, you often think of these cute bundles wrapped in hats and placed in props. Well that is not how I do it! I like to keep things a little more natural. It is essentially a mini family shoot within your home. I'll get some images of your wee one alongside some of you all together as a family.

Family photography with all the fun

THE FAMILY + Newborn shoots

'24' Shoots // A Day in the Life

The "24" represents the 24 hours of the day. These day in a life sessions are my way of capturing the true reality of family life...the laughter, tears, mishaps and utmost love.

I take my award winning documentary approach and create it a fun experience and a day that hopefully will have a lasting great impression on your family. You'll leave with smiles and an extensive photographic memories from your morning walk to your favourite park, your afternoon baking session, trip to bowling, or visiting the grandparents before  and ending with memories of those cosy evening snuggles. 

Unique to Bristol, The all day family shoot

A taster of fun family photography for those who might not have thought about family photography before. The taster family shoots are in one location on a set 'shootday' and consist of 20 minute time slots which you can book.

Each slot allows for a 15 minute family photoshoot to capture some beautiful photographs of yourselves or your family. All photographs from the shoot will be uploaded to and online gallery in which you can create you own package. With every booking you will be gifted a print credit voucher to use towards this.

"Gavin is an amazing family photographer, one of the most creative and unusual I’ve seen"

Gemma Kirkpatrick

where are the best Locations around Bristol for family photos?

The best thing about living in Bristol is the vast array of beautiful scenic backdrops for your family activities. For instance, why not:

// Take a walk around Snuff Mills
// Grab an ice-cream at the Harbourside
// Climb to the top of either Brandon or Trooper's Hill
// Ride the rock slide down to Clifton Suspension Bridge
// Splash in the fountains at Millennium Square
// Throw leaves in your favourite city park
// Go and join the bears picnic at Leigh woods

However, if you fancy a change from Bristol then we could head to the picturesque town of Clevedon for some seaside vibes. My intention is to give you a relaxed photoshoot showing your everyday family interactions, whilst I shoot my documentary style with a sprinkling of fun. Family portraits and natural moments combined in a glorious way.

Need some Inspiration for your family session or 24 shoot?

which activities make great photographs?

Planning activities for the day provides an opportunity for a great depth of imagery. Literally anything goes, just think as me as your personal family photographer come biographer.

Some activities can involve the external. For instance a long walk in the park or up a mountain, rowing boats, bowling, sledging, or just a surprise visit to the grandparents. The list is endless.

Alongside this some in house activities often provide the best imagery - art and painting, baking a cake, story time or even playing a simple board game.  If there are tears and tantrums then awesome, it is part of being a family. In fact, you'll probably laugh at these images the most in the years to come.

"so much more than your standard studio session"

The El Alami's // Family  Shoot

"We could not be happier with the result, so much more than your standard studio session. He took lots of different group photos, individual portraits and "action shots". Gavin was very professional and super friendly and got our "family chemistry" immediately, which is reflected in the photos. Our dog loved him too!  Highly recommended!"

Find Out more about the Photographer

Firstly It is awesome to meet you! I am an international award winning family photographer for which I am now lucky enough to photograph families all over the UK. Every household has a different story, and every photograph I take creates a new page of this story. I ensure your memories are captured in an honest and authentic way.

So now for a little more about me. I love plants, art, cheese, of course, photographing faces! I once worked as a photographer at sea however I now live next to the seaside, in the town of Clevedon near the city of Bristol, with my beautiful other half  and our two fur babies - Tinks & Mungo. 

On the days when I am not photographing families around Bristol, you will most likely find me paddle-boarding or on my bike, watching some foreign cinema or animated family film, photographing sunsets after a dip in Clevedon Marine Lake. I also love walking around Bristol harbour side with my Fuji camera, shooting street photos.
