Portrait Photography in Belfast

Portrait Photography sounds very formal doesnt it. When someone says portrait photography my mind instantly goes to a family photography session in Belfast, my Mum had years ago. My nanny is sitting in the chair and everyone is standing around her.  Classic portrait photography in Belfast years ago was studio based.

Back straight, fixed smile …. formal

Portrait photography in Belfast has changed over the years. Thank goodness i was never a fan of the formal photograph.  My school photos can vouch for that.  Crikey only a mother could love those school photographs.  I dont buy the school photographs that come in the school bag twice a year.  Firstly they are way too expensive and secondly they are formal portraits.  They make me uncomfortable to just look at.  My darling Mum always asks to see them and we had a moment when i told her i wasn’t buying them again this year.

You always buy at least one school photo Melanie

I was told. Then i showed her the price list and she said, ah ok, yeah got it.  For a tiny bit more you could hire me for a few hours to take some gorgeous portrait photographs of your family. They will be silly, joyful and you.

No straight back, no fixed smile….. relaxed
