A family photo captures life’s most precious moments. We’ve rounded up the family photography experts and photo studios for your next photoshoot or family portrait session.
Hong Kong has an amazing pool of talented family photographers, whether you’re looking to capture special moments at your little one’s birthday party or need an annual family portrait to send holiday cards back home. While some specialise in a particular type of photography including maternity and newborn photography, most of them offer a wide range of services and you can count on them to deliver amazing family photos no matter what the occasion.
Here’s how you can pick the family photographer who’s most suited for your family:
- Take a look at the photographer’s portfolio or gallery to find the aesthetic that you like the most.
- Consider where you want your family photos to take place. You could have the photographer come to your home, shoot outdoors at a favourite family spot or prefer to visit the photo studio for more formal family portraits.
- Check availability (many photographers are taking limited bookings) and photo package prices.
