Baby, Children & Family Portrait Photographer

When choosing a family photographer in Staffordshire and Derbyshire, you want someone who is personable and comfortable to work with, has an extensive knowledge of lighting and posing, and is professional from beginning to end.  You will get that and more with Gareth Newstead Photography.  Hopefully you will want to come back year after year to document your family as they grow and change. 

I absolutely love taking pictures of families and children; and being a father of two I know how quickly they grow up and change and how important it is to document and capture these moments. I use the skills of negotiation I have learned as a dad (!) to connect with the children resulting in gorgeous natural images of them. I have a range of different shoots available including 

1 – visiting my Studio based in Burton On Trent, Staffordshire for Traditional Studio Portraits with a range of different backdrops for your Children and Family Portrait Photography 

2 – As a Staffordshire Child photographer we have the option for a Modern Lifestyle Shoot, visiting your family’s favourite location such as a park or woodland. This can offer the perfect and natural background to capture real memories with dramatic lighting. 

3 – I also appreciate that babies, children and parents are often more comfortable in their own environment so I can bring everything to you with a Portable Home Studio, this is particularly good for Bump to Baby Maternity Photography and Newborn Photography.

Every family photo shoot I do is different and I like to allow you to have the most input on which direction we go; however they normally follow a similar structure. I like to spend time beforehand to get to know you, build up trust and, most importantly, give you time to tell me what you want. For me the key to being a great Children’s Photographer is trust, so making friends with your little ones at the very start of the shoot is one of my priorities (easy as a big kid at heart!). You might be the best technical photographer in the world but if you don’t know how to interact with children then you’ll never get great Children’s Portraits. Please have a look at my testimonials, you will be extremely satisfied booking Gareth Newstead Photography as your Children and Family Photographer.

“I am a returning customer – surely the best recommendation you can give! Gareth captures amazing photographs – my little boy is not a natural in front of the camera, and yet Gareth managed to get shots that we were thrilled with. The service he provides is excellent, he was happy to make changes to the orientation and colour options to get a print that we were really happy with. Competitively priced. Gareth is really friendly and yet professional, and good with children. More than happy to recommend.”

We decided to book Gareth for a combined lifestyle and studio shoot and so glad we did. We got some lovely natural shots at our house and at the local park and then some beautiful studio shots all from the comfort of our own home. Very talented photographer. So happy with the pictures and loved the shoot. Gareth was also brilliant with our 3 month old daughter Jessica.
