Family Photographer North Yorkshire
Thank you for visiting, I'm so glad you're interested in a family photoshoot with me. I’m a North Yorkshire family photographer and have been photographing families in Yorkshire, Lancashire and Derbyshire for the past seven years.
Growing up, the Yorkshire Dales provided the perfect backdrop and I was forever snapping away in the beautiful surroundings. I always knew photography was going to be a big part of my life. This passion developed further at Sheffield Hallam University, where I acquired the technical skills essential to produce award-winning, timeless images.
After qualifying in childcare and spending some time nannying, I realised just how precious childhood is. Looking after children of all ages taught me how vital it is to capture these moments before they slip away into the past undocumented.
I understand having professional photographs taken can feel a little out of the ordinary. Attempting to have photographs taken with young children can be stressful; they want to play, explore, climb and generally be children. However, as a mother myself, I see this as a huge opportunity to capture natural images and produce a beautiful record of their childhood whilst having fun. My style is very relaxed and I like to spend time getting to know the family before I get the camera out. Building up a rapport with the children ensures we capture genuine smiles and create happy memories.
Family photography has been my favourite genre for the past seven years. As well as colourful, outdoor family photography around Skipton, North Yorkshire, I also provide lifestyle photography in the home. This is perfect for those who want to tell their story through images from the comfort of their own home, surrounded by their memories and favourite things.
Felt at ease straight away"To say we enjoyed our photo shoot with Amy Pitfield Photography would be the biggest understatement ever. Every single one of us was beaming from ear to ear by the end of our beautiful, crisp, autumnal walk. The kids loved Amy and felt at ease with her straight away, something that I think comes across in the photos. I cannot recommend Amy enough for anyone who is looking to capture a very natural moment in time, I know we will treasure these photos forever."
SOME OF MY FAMILY PHOTOS
How does it work?
Which session is right for you?
Depending on the ages of your children and your particular tastes, different sessions will work better for different families.
Outdoor Location Shoot
Lifestyle shoot in the home
In the comfort of your own surroundings, I will come to you and document memories in the place your children feel most content. These lifestyle photoshoots allow us to not only capture authentic, natural moments with you and your little ones, but they allow us to document a snapshot of the bigger picture; your house, decor, the nursery. These are all things that will be remembered fondly for years to come.
As well as small babies, these shoots work perfectly for older children as they go about their lives at home. Reading stories in their bedroom, tea parties in the garden, making dens, baking, playing with Lego. The memories will be treasured for a lifetime.
ALL Sessions Include the following:
Online Gallery or In-person SlideshowI'll send you an online gallery or come to your house for THE BIG REVEAL! This is where I present a slideshow of your images and you can have a look at some samples. The reason I offer to come to your house is so I can see your walls in person and offer advice. I'll be able to show you which size would work best above your fireplace, which grouping will go beautifully with your decor colours and which print finish will work best with the lighting in your room.
Step 1 - Session fee
My sessions are £50 plus whichever collection you choose from the list below. I take the £50 on booking then you can decide which collection you’d like once you have seen your gallery.

Amazing Results"Amy has such a huge talent not only in her photography but also working her magic on children. How she managed to capture such beautiful photos of my non-stop 2 year old little boy is beyond me."
Frequently Asked Questions
Some families have a location in mind already as it means something to them as a family. But some have no preference so I’m happy to make suggestions based on the time of year and the ages of your children. As a North Yorkshire family photographer, I have quite a few favourite spots!
I will keep an eye on the weather and will be in touch if we have to rearrange. Grey skies aren’t a bad thing but if it’s really raining heavily then we’ll rearrange. You won’t lose your deposit.
Yes. Grandparents are more than welcome.
Most photo shoots last 1-2 hours to allow enough time for your children to fully relax and be completely themselves. If your child is young and is getting tired then we can just finish when they're ready. There’s no pressure at all.
I take a £50 non-refundable deposit on booking to secure your date then nothing else is payable until you view your gallery and decide which collection you’d like to purchase.
I will bring my samples to the gallery reveal in your home where we can hold them up against your walls and decide which would work best.
