Colette & Family

A 2-hour Documentary Family Portrait Session in Dorset

Best Family Photographer Dorset


The pictures that are most important to me of my own family and friends are the most unguarded ones, the ones of them just being themselves. The posed portraits have their place but to capture them in their ‘natural’ state is both poetic and beautiful.

The most significant ones, the ones that mean the most to me, always seem to be made in the smaller moments.

A Family Portrait Session doesn’t have to mean being encouraged to smile. There’s really no need to ‘grin and bear it’. It really doesn’t have to be that hard. For anyone.

It’s always a privilege to spend time photographing a family like this – to capture the small moments that bond them. And even though this was only a 2 hour session, the family gave me so much of themselves.

Thank you, Colette x

“Will captured many beautiful moments of our family on a woodland walk. I am delighted we did it. We were a bit unsure how it would feel being photographed but Will was friendly and considerate and put us at ease, and took lovely pictures! Will was also amazingly flexible with us when trying to get a date booked in and also went over and above to get the images to us so that we’d have them in time for gifts. Thank you Will!”
