Professional photographs of your children (and fur babies) growing up from the comfort of your own home and garden or a location of your choice, Matt prides himself on putting the whole family at ease and helping to create a fun memorable experience. His style is a world away from awkward posing in a formal studio setup. Whatever is important to your family that is what matters and Matt will focus on telling your own unique, personal family story through photography.  

      Acorn to Oak is already established as the go-to photographer with a few families since first photographing the couple’s wedding. It’s great to have repeat business but it’s more than that, it’s a privilege to get to know a family and watch them grow over time.


      Matt recommends:

      Have your family photography session outside in a familiar setting that can help calm any nerves and hold the kids attention, which will make for fun and fantastic images.

      "Thanks for being so good with the kids and making us feel really relaxed. For a couple who don't like getting their photo taken that's a big thing! Thanks for sending on the photos. We love them! You really captured us all well. Can't wait to show them to friends and family."

      Brown Family

      "The photos are lovely! We really like the ones with baby and the dog, very cute! Baby has changed so much since then!"

      Macleod Family

      "We were all a little nervous since it was the first time for us taking professional photos as a family, but Matt made us all at ease and was great with the kids. We wanted to have natural/ non posed pictures and he delivered on that! We are so happy with the quality and the whole package. You can trust Matt and we can’t wait for a follow-up shoot."
