Family Portrait Service

 
 

Being a dad myself I appreciate the need to record every event in my daughter's life. Everything she does candidly amazes me and if you have children or grand-children of your own I am sure you know what I mean. Photography has evolved so much over the past century that anywhere anyone is able to snap at those precious moments in life (pregnancy, birth, birthdays, new house, time at the grand parents', anniversaries) whether it is with a phone or a normal camera. So why would you consider a professional Artist Photographer to capture those invaluable seconds? Perhaps because you always end up being behind the camera and never take part of the scene and family is the subject after all, so you ought to be in the frame as well. Maybe you appreciate the art of Photography and understand that a great photograph is more than just a picture, it is a piece of art worth being acquired and hiring Tom Migot Photography guarantees it. I invite you to visit the Family Portraits gallery which shows some of the loving families I had the honour to immortalise.

Location :

The best way to capture children's portrait is when they do not pay attention to the camera. Remember these photos taken at school, very formal and far from interesting. Children are very sensitive to changes and they are not the ones who should accommodate for the photographer. Therefore I come to your house or any location your family is at ease. Scotland is a beautiful place to live and therefore, when the weather permits it, I capture Family portraits outside (park, nature, by the sea etc*). The choice is entirely yours.

 

Prices :

£100 + print cost

  • 1 hour photo shoot - you choose the location (indoor or outdoor).
  • A private password protected online gallery where you and the rest of your family can view all the images fully edited. Your images are kept safe for 4 years.
  • A digital copy of all the resulting photographs fully edited for showing your friends on social medias or to put on your mobile phone. Too small to be printed.

£200 + print cost

  • 2 hour photo shoot - you choose the location (indoor or outdoor).
  • A private password protected online gallery where you and the rest of your family can view all the images fully edited. Your images are kept safe for 4 years.
  • A digital copy of all the resulting photographs fully edited in High-resolution so you can print them yourself at will.

 

Prints :

As an artist I take pride in crafting unique fine art photographs and therefore I have run a thorough quality check on all the resulting products (albums, book, prints, canvas etc.). I do not live by the standard crop rules set by the printing industry to facilitate their production and I have chosen to rely on a lab which manufactures prints according to my creativity. Hence the size below are just for reference. However, should you need specific crop ratio for a frame or album you already have I will happily oblige.

  • Small (~30cmx20cm) : £12
  • Medium (~45cmx30cm): £19
  • Large (~60cmx40cm): £30
  • Extra Large( ~76cmx50cm): £50

Options :

Time :

Photography is an art while it is my profession I do not approach it as a clock-in clock-out job. Therefore my 1 or 2 hour sessions are usually more like 1.5h and 2.5h. However, should you wish to secure extra time for the shoot, it is £50 per each extra hour.

Distance :

Being an Edinburgh-based photographer means I only start charging travel expense when the shooting location is beyond the Edinburgh bypass or 10 miles from Prestonpans, whichever one is the closest.

Makeup :

Tom Migot Photography has an exclusive partnership with the amazing local professional Makeup Artist Beauty By KJ Brown. You can either treat yourself before the shoot to look at your best or treat your children with some face painting.

Prints:

I invite you to visit the Prints & Albums page where you will find all the information about the quality and options Tom Migot Photography offers.
