Family Portraiture


VisualChaos Studios based in Crawley Down, West Sussex, specialise in Portraits that capture contemporary and stylish images of you and your family.

So whether you are capturing a new baby, a fast growing toddler, cool teenagers, glamorous grandparents or just the two of you together, our relaxed and friendly approach to photography ensures that we capture the best images possible

Taking pictures at home means that one of you is usually behind the camera and so images of you all together can be thin on the ground. Remedy this with a family portrait session at our professional photography studio in Crawley Down, all together, all having fun and focused on capturing the relationship between you all.

Take an hour to enjoy a relaxed photo session (including time for us to get to know each other and talk over your ideas) and take a lifetime to enjoy the resulting images.

We shoot from our boutique studio and so family group sizes are limted to 4 or 5 at a push if the children are small. Larger family groups can be shot at your home or on location.

A ‘just kids’ session does pretty much what it says on the tin. It allows us to focus the session on the younger members of the family, capturing them separately and together. Relaxed and informal, it is great fun for the kids and will certainly generate fabulous images for your wall or to give as gifts for birthdays and Christmas.

The session can incorporates changes of outfits (if you’d like it to). You should allow an hour so that you can talk through your ideas with us and take things as a relaxed pace.

A lot of teenagers are notoriously camera-shy, getting them to ‘smile for the camera’ can sometimes be a difficult task. So don’t! Serious faces can be just as compelling. We believe that it is important to recognise that they are out of the realms of ‘childish things’, and we recommend an altogether more fresh and funky approach.

These sessions are often best shot on location, either at your home or another convenient place and take a much more ‘lifestyle’ approach, reflecting your hobbies, interests and personality – with the finished images having a fashion, advertising or magazine type feel to them.

On the day of the session, we meet and agree a rough plan then continue to work in a relaxed and informal way to create the desired images.

As with many things in life, it can be more fun with a friend! It is often a good idea to combine sessions with a best friend and double the fun – ending up with a set of great images of them separately and together. An on-location ‘fashion shoot’ can be a great idea for a teenager’s birthday or Christmas present.


Sessions are for up to 1 hour & includes 5 digital images of your choice.

These sessions are for families with up to 2 adults and 3 children due to our boutique studio size (bigger families please contact us first). All session prices include the photography session, the post production work and 5 digital images sized 9″ on the longest side at 240 ppi.

You do not need to re-visit the studio for a “sales” meeting like you do with other studios, you proof the images at home in your private online portfolio for up to 50 days. Just email your 5 favourites and we will link you to the high-resolution images for download.

You can of course upgrade or purchase more, just use the links in the proofing area accordingly. We still offer prints, wraps and framing options etc. as you would expect from a professional photography studio. Our print prices and shop products can be found using the buttons below.
