Family Session Offer


Includes 8″x6″ mounted print and £50 off on all ourPackages and Wall Art
When is the last time you had some professional pictures of your family? If you are looking for gifts for Christmas or you just think it is time to update your family pictures now is the ideal time to book your Family Portrait session at our Croydon Studio. Over the last ten years we’ve photographed hundreds of families and each and every one is completely different! Along with our amazing value packages we offer a wide range of beautifully mounted prints and Wall Art created onsite by one of the UK’s best bespoke printers and framers.

Your family photography experience

Your photography studio portrait experience lasts about an hour on the day but some people like to stay a bit longer to enjoy a luxury hot chocolate in The Photo Cafe afterwards!


Your family photography experience begins at The Photo Cafe where you’ll not only be able to enjoy an luxury hot chocolate but also see examples of our stunning wall art.

Latte and cameras


Your family photography session in the studio lasts about an hour so there’s plenty of time for us to take a variety of pictures of your family. We have plenty of room for you to bring the extended family for portraits which make great gifts for grandparents.


You’ll be invited back to view your images about a week later after they have been professionally edited. This normally takes about 45 minutes but can take longer when choosing the right type of wall art for your home.

Family Session Winter 2020

£99.00 £25.00


“We had a fantastic session with Memory Gate Photography Studios. This was the second time that we have used them and we were very happy with the wonderful photographs on both occasions. Never rushed and very calm, Michael and Marcin went out of their way to understand what we wanted and made us feel relaxed and comfortable. They managed to capture some very natural smiles in our photographs, as well as managing to get the two of them smiling together – not always easy to do, especially with my shy elder child! Most of our personal photographs taken usually end up with either the backs of their heads, or blurred as they don’t stand still long enough, and we have very few of them together, yet Michael made it look easy! Family portraits bring a lifetime of memories and pleasure and we will not hesitate to use them again in the future”
