Unique Family Portraits at The Big Cottage Company

Kate and Tom's Big Cottage Portrait


A holiday with Kate & Tom’s Big Cottage Company is ideal for a weekend away with family and friends, and the perfect time, with all of you together, for a family portrait session.

I am really pleased to be working alongside Michael and Catherine at their stunning Big Cottages. I know how special a holiday there will be – I have stayed at one of the cottages with my own family  – and it is all the small touches that they include that make a big difference.

Big Cottage Family Gathering

Families don’t often get together, all in one place. My shoots are all on location at your Big Cottage, so we can make the most of your beautiful surroundings and you have a great shoot in a relaxing environment.

Depending on how many of you are staying, I usually spend a couple of hours with you at the cottage, taking a variety of photographs of individuals and groups – you are not all involved for the whole time, and it doesn’t take much time out from your stay to get some fantastic photographs . Each session is unique, and every session is fun.

How does it work? I arrange a time to come over to your Big Cottage – if you are staying for a weekend then often Saturday morning works well – and I will spend some time getting a wide variety of photographs of your family. Very often it is three generations of a family, and I will typically look to get photos of everyone all together, grandparents and children, grandparents and grandchildren, as well as the individual family groups, and photos of the grandchildren on their own. This is by no means an exclusive list – I will take whatever shots you like. If you are a group of friends staying together then obviously this list will be flexible.

This is a short portfolio of photographs from sessions at various Big Cottage locations:
