Traditional Family Portrait Photography

Traditional family portrait photography provides the kind of timeless, framed wall art that can never be enjoyed on the screen of a phone, or a computer.

Let's start by asking, when was the last time you had a professional family portrait taken?

Time slips by so fast, one minute our children are in our arms, the next they are in school, and before we know it we are looking for a wedding photographer for them. Don't let that time slip away without capturing beautiful, unrepeatable images. Let's make sure that we capture them as much as we can as they progress through all of their childhood years.

Hugh Anderson Photography specializes in beautiful traditional family photographs. Our artistic creative wall pieces can be created in studio, or if you prefer, in your own home.  The benefit of having a traditional family portrait taken at home is you will have everything you need at hand - clothes, accessories, etc. As a local photographer, we are able to offer this service, for family photos, senior photography, and a range of other genres. If you need a headshot photographer, it's the same as needing a portrait photographer, with a few differences. Ask for details.

Your Family Photographer

The role of a family photographer in your life shouldn't be a one off event, a passing unrepeatable experience . It's should be ongoing, an important responsibility, documenting the lives of families in a consistent and professional manner. It's my duty to prompt my clients, to remind them that some time has passed since their last session, and so perhaps we should schedule the next.  I apologize in advance, but if you work with me this year, you will be hearing from me next year, In a respectful, friendly way of course. How else can we create wonderful, lasting memories that will absolutely be enjoyed for years, even generations, to come?

Fine Art Portrait Photography is my speciality. The art of  traditional family photography seems to have gotten a little lost, with many businesses built around the outdoor session model. Much of this is based on the ability to capture photo sessions without a studio, or studio lighting and props. Yes, I can capture an outdoor portrait session if you prefer, but the path to traditional portraits, archival photographs, lies in a the portrait studio setting.

The lighting, the photography backdrop, the style of the photographer, all blends into the creation of a fine art portrait. Capturing a photograph of someone, an individual or a group, relies not only on technical ability and professional equipment, it also relies on being able to connect, to relate, to those mostly nervous people in front of the lens. I believe that I can do that for you, and your family.

Do you want to be photographed in a studio environment, or would you prefer to be photographed in your own home or office? I am happy to arrange your photo shoot wherever you are comfortable.  The benefits of a home studio portrait session is that everyone has all the clothes they might need at hand, and it's a much more relaxed environment. I will of course bring lighting and background equipment. Please ask for details.  

Here are some of the areas that I cover, though I will travel throughout most of Michigan if required. All of Oakland County and Metro Detroit, including Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills, West Bloomfield, Troy, Rochester Hills, Auburn Hills, Royal Oak, Sterling Heights, Farmington Hills, Plymouth, and a few other areas not mentioned. If you are quite a distance away from my base in Bloomfield Hills, please ask about traveling fees.
