Family Photo Shoots

Time flies, capture it before it goes!

Thank you for visiting Derya Vicars Photography. I am a multi award winning Wirral Family Photographer. Our beautiful studio is based in Heswall and we work with families who would like to have something special rather than a few ordinary snaps.

We love creating simple, timeless images that truly capture your family’s natural personality and beauty. We put this approach in the centre of our photo shoots so that every time our families come back to the studio to view their finished images they say “oh wow these photographs just sum us up perfectly.” Our families love photography as much as we do, so they always proudly show case their images in stylish ways that enhance their home with the beautiful and unique wall art we provide for them. 

When you book a session we guide you through all the way from what to wear for your shoot to help you to chose those perfect images that you have been looking for.

If this sounds like you we would love to meet you and capture some lovely images for your family to cherish forever. 

You can find all the information regarding our family portrait sessions on this page but please do not hesitate to contact us if you need further information. 

There are so many times during the year when you come together as a family; school holidays or when the grand parents visit. Are your children in different schools and you’d like a picture of them together? It could be that your little one isn’t so little any more and is travelling off to University, they could be moving to another country.

Children grow up so quickly don’t they – that’s what they say – and with my own two children it’s true!

Who are these sessions for?

Our Portrait Sessions are for anyone in the family; parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, grand parents and even your pets.

Prior to your session we will discuss any special requirements and who will be in the photographs so our studio can be prepared accordingly.

Use the contact form below to ask any questions or provide some additional information for your session.

The sessions take place in the relaxed atmosphere of our studio and generally last about 1.5hrs.

What if my children don’t behave?

Well, having two of my own children I know first hand how difficult it is! Therefore we take our time to make sure they look in the same direction and smile all at the same time. Don’t worry if they don’t! This is why our photographs are mostly natural and not staged.

We are passionate about capturing your children’s personality in the photographs. This is the reason why we make the photo session like a fun playtime for them. Also we always make sure they are relaxed and enjoying their time.

For instance we offer breaks during the session which are helpful for children with additional needs. The studio is situated near a local authority Play Area. You can always run off some energy before hand, during or after the session.

Above all we don’t want you to feel stressed during the session, as this shows in the photographs.


To book your session click on the button ‘Book Now’ and contact the studio; we ask for a £35 session fee. If you purchase one of our packages you will receive a complimentary single 10×8″ mounted print from your selected digital images. 

You will be invited back to the studio one to two weeks after your session to view your final gallery of professionally edited images. At the end of the viewing session you may decide which of the packages you wish to purchase and treasure in your home. 

In the age of Digital Photography we know that USB is the choice of storing images. It’s understandable to us that you’ll want to share your photos with other people in your family. Remember when floppy discs were all the rage? We didn’t think they would be overtaken by CDs and yet DVDs came along. Well you need to ask yourself if USB sticks will still be around in 10 years time? 

The one item that has been around since photography studios opened are frames, printed images. So we feel a mix of Digital and Print Packages is the way forward. Portraits should be on your wall, or in albums which is why we’ve created the ‘Studio Collection’ which combine the best of our products. Be sure to have a good look at our products when you visit the studio.
