Time passes so quickly!  Capture those special moments with your Children and Family!


Children and Family photography is about having fun and freezing those moments in time.  As the years pass, all that will remain of these special family moments will be your memories and your photographs.

With photographing children, it is all about the connection. Finding the best way to bring out their unique personality and character traits. This takes patience, skill and most of all fun.  I believe my images display the best of your children's character.


How I make you comfortable in front of the camera


Most people freeze or become incredibly self conscious when a camera is pointed toward them so before I pick up my camera I spend time getting to know you, your personality and what makes you special. As you relax and feel comfortable I will find out why are you having your children or family session. I will talk to you about bringing out your best features and how a camera will capture them.  Only then will I start to take your special pictures.

This style of photography is relaxed and candid and normally consist of your family being themselves and having fun

This could be at in studio, in our gardens, at your home or a favorite location of your choice.


What people have said about their Children and Family Sessions:


Rachel T

By far the best photographer I've ever come across. James work speaks for itself. He is one of a kind photographer, who puts his heart and soul into his work and it shows in what he produces.
James shot my two daughters. One of whom is very shy and was reluctant to have her photo taken. She was put at ease by James and she ended up enjoying every minute of the shoot. The photo's had me in tears. So beautiful. I highly recommend James Pyne Photography for family portraits, individual portraits and anything in between. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I just wanna say how lucky we are that we had the privilege of getting our family portraits done by James. The whole experience was amazing we felt so comfortable and welcomed. James and Tanya are a joy to be around. There are professional and accommodating to all needs. Looking forward to James capturing the next chapter of Our Lives.
