Doorstep Portraits


Doorstep Family Portraits, Morpeth

Lockdown….wow it is tough! BUT on a positive note I have personally loved the community spirit. The friendliness of neighbours and walking around Morpeth seeing people on their doorsteps. I think I have spoken (from a safe distance) to more people in my local area in the last few weeks than I have since moving to Morpeth 3 years ago!

Doorstep Family Portraits

So like many photographers around the country I thought I’d offer the fabulous people of Morpeth the opportunity to mark this time with a Doorstep Family Portrait shoot. Life has paused (although it may not feel like it inside our homes!) but families are changing, babies are still being born and our children are growing up.

Your Doorstep Photoshoot

You are probably thinking “Do I just stand there all stiff and pose? I could get a neighbour to take that photo”. I promise you I will make it fun and relaxed.

Your families have their own little quirks and jokes that have grown and developed behind closed door. We will have a quick chat about what you have been up to where you have been going for your daily exercise and we will find your little quirks.

Or you may have had a baby during lockdown, let me capture you and your new addition.

What artwork do you have in the window? Have you been working hard on rainbows and messages for people walking past or for the NHS? Let me capture it all.

For us we have gone on numerous walks which have ended in carrying our two little people on our shoulders (urgh I can’t wait for this to grow old…or can I? I actually think I will miss it). My little girl is like a gymnast and is forever wanting to be hung upside down. So we tried to capture these moments on the doorstep, we maybe tired of them now but I don’t want to forget them.

There are a few photos below of a couple of families I have captured already.
