Kent Family Photography


Our aim is to make your portrait experience an enjoyable one for your child or all the family. Experience has shown that getting kids to perform instantly doesn't always happen, this is why your session is not just fixed to one hour, unless you book one of our special seasonal mini shoots. With a maximum of two bookings in our Kent studio on a Saturday & one session scheduled during the week you are guaranteed our full attention. We promise to never overbook our appointments, so you will never be left waiting too long to view your images, that is simply not acceptable. But please do aim to book at least 1 month in advance, although occasionally we do have cancellations & may be able to book you at short notice.

Our investment on each client is a minimum of 6 hours creating your portraits cutting corners is not an option to us, it is quality all the way. Prior to your session we are here to discuss what outfits to wear for your shoot or what artwork will be best suitable to your rooms where they will be hung. After your portrait photography sitting a variety of images are skilfully retouched in a range of styles & you are invited back to a special viewing/ordering appointment within 7-10 days of your session. We understand just how excited parents, especially new ones with their newborns can get, we also appreciate the investment that you are making in your portraits so feel you should receive the very best photography service available. 

Weekday & evening appointments are available to view your portraits on the large screen, this is where the magic really starts & the moment our clients most look forward to & Adam. We have lots of smiles, we see lots of tears, good ones may I add which makes it so worthwhile, not to mention the priceless feedback, that you simply do not get with online gallery viewings. It also gives the perfect opportunity to discuss any further editing requirements or technical queries you may have about any of our wall art products or discounted Collections. 

Purchased files are stored for a maximum of six months giving you a chance to purchase further products for the family at a later date & Facebook page members can select an image or two to be posted so they can share with friends for no extra charge, not forgetting that you could become a star of the About U Photography Blog

What are you waiting for to book your very own toddler portrait studio session now from only £40 or a family photography session from £49 to capture some truly special family memories now.

About-U-Photgraphy_studio_welcome.jpg

The studio


Since we opened our doors the very first time offering portrait photography to clients in Maidstone back in 2008, we always wanted to provide them with a comfortable space to visit. Our beginnings were very humble in a converted garage come office, with viewings conducted in our dining room but the images produced in that small space, we are very proud of even to this day, but first impressions do count! So it was time for a change, we had simply outgrown the space.

Roll on to the summer of 2013 when we moved with the family to the edge of Rainham in Gillingham, boardering Upchurch a small village with such a warm community spirit to it. After completing a full refurbishment our Boutique garden studio was ready to open for business in October. Learning from past experience we wanted to create the perfect cosy home from home environment, detached from the family home, that Kent children would feel comfortable visiting. Our studio in the Medway towns offers a comfortable seating area where clients can sit & relax whilst capturing portraits of the kids, before creating special photographs of the whole family. That is our story now let us capture yours!

We have ample free parking right outside the studio & are conveniently located for the Sittingbourne, Medway & Maidstone towns, all being within a 25 minute drive, with good links to the A2, M2 & M20.

A little about Adam

I am sure I am not alone in mentioning that this text is the hardest to write for any photographer or business owner come to mention it, so I will keep it brief!

My story began with photography way back in the 80's with a Kodak compact camera, I loved taking images, popping the film out and sending it to Truprint & excitedly waiting for the postman to deliver the results. My favourite subject in my teens was motorsport photography after my father had given me his Zenit SLR which I thought was amazing, I spent many years standing on the banks at Brands Hatch. In the early 90's I attended Mid Kent College taking photography, such magical times learning how to get the best results with a manual SLR camera & then developing my own film. At the time I was amazed watching the image come alive right in front of my eyes. I gained an O'level which I was extremely proud of, so as you can see photography has always played an important part in my life.

Since the launch of About U Photography in 2008 I have worked with clients from all over my home county of Kent & also have visits to the studio from families living in South East London, Surrey & even clients returning to the area from overseas to visit relatives who want to capture the moment. The majority of my time is spent working as a Kent family portrait photographer in my studio & I am very fortunate to have built up a loyal & solid client database, many return year on year, which I feel is testament to the quality of my photography & how I run my business.

Like any photographer (we love our gadgets), I enjoy building websites, spending time with my family & labradoodle, together with a spot of reading, to help me relax. I also have rather a large collection of movie stills, I love studying how images were originally lit. My last passion is animal welfare & I am a fosterer for a number of local dog rescues!

That is enough about me, but if you appreciate my values & have enjoyed taking a look at my portfolio please do contact me to discuss your very own Kent wedding, family shoot or commercial project. Thank you for taking the time to view my page & I look forward to learning a little bit more About U

Many Thanks Adam
