One of Our Clients Comments
We were so impressed by Neil’s creativity when it comes to “thinking outside of the box”. Our photographs are admired and talked about by many who come to our home. Our boys had such a great time throughout the shoot, Neil made it very fun and the boys were so relaxed and could be themselves. We can honestly say that we now have the best pictures of our boys ever and we would definitely go to Neil for future photoshoots and would highly recommend. Thank you again Neil.
Neil is a specialist in family portraits and his talent working with kids is second to none.

Whether coming in as a couple, a family with 2.4 kids or bringing in the family pet, you are sure to create some long lasting memories to cherish for a lifetime.
The Made Portraits Cake Smash Sessions are the perfect way to document that 1st birthday milestone that means so much. Your session will capture a small selection of family images to put your kids at ease and then the smashing begins. The whole experience rounds off with a little splash time in our beautiful claw footed baby bath and the images are delightful.
The Fine Art Newborn Shoots at Made Portraits will capture those early days with stunning style. These extended sessions allow plenty of time to settle your little one and feed in between shots if so required. With a selection of blankets and props on hand, you will walk away with images which will be adored for years to come.
The Extended Family Sessions at our Glastonbury based studio are for those special occasions when the entire family gets together.

MY 1ST YEAR
My 1st Year sessions are bespoke made to you. Some like just 2 sessions for their Newborn and then the 1st birthday whereas others like to come in every 2 months for the first year to watch them grow. Whatever your preference, we will make the package fit your special requirements. Get in touch to build the package that suits you.
BUMP 2 BABY
Bump 2 Baby Sessions are again bespoke made to fit you. You may want to track your bumps growth or simply capture it in the final stages of pregnancy. You may want to track the first year of your new addition as well. We fit the package to your preferences so get in touch and discuss with Neil exactly how you want your Bump 2 Baby package to work.
The Maternity Sessions are an amazing way to celebrate your bump at this special time. The sessions run at a slow pace which allows you as much time as you need off your feet. The images are lit to create timeless imagery of you and your bump and whether on your own or with family, the images are a great start to your expanding families story.
Tattitude sessions are unique to Made Portraits as we bring a unique flair to your kids photography experience. Most kids groan at the thought of having to do a photographic session but when they see the 'Tattitude' that these sessions bring, kids truly embrace it. We apply beautiful water resistant transfer tattoos that last up to 5 days.
Lemon Babies is an ongoing hilarious portrait project where Neil captures a series of funny images of your babies first taste of Lemon. To have your little one participate in these wonderful 20 minute mini-session which take place on specific dates, your baby simply needs to be able to sit up unaided but as yet is still to take their first steps.
