Family Portraits Balmaha

Ben, Balmaha

“A huge thank you to you and Ken. We absolutely love the photographs. We could not have imagined that they would turn out so beautiful. My dad cried when he saw the video for the first time, which is most unlike my dad, but I think shows how much we all love them and how well they capture the E that we all know and love. We will definitely be returning for more sessions as she grows.”

—The McAvinchey Family, Glasgow

Family Portraits Jordanhill

David and Kate, Jordanhill

“I am yet again delighted with them all... Please thank Ken for me. The kids were so relaxed around him. I've not been able to get a half decent shot of G in months as all he does is cheesy fake grins, Ken walks in and in two minutes has him posing like a pro! My little collection of Ken's work is treasured. They are a perfect glimpse of each passing year. I look at them every day and smile. How lucky Ken is to have the ability to capture that. They are just wonderful! It makes you a bit emotional!”

—The Taylor Family, Glasgow

Family Portraits Bearsden

Eva, Bearsden

“I don't like them – I love them! Feeling very emotional sitting here going through them..I knew they were going to be good but it's an amazing feeling to see your child captured so well. The whole process was so easy & enjoyable for us that I'm already looking forward to seeing you again for another shoot to capture the pre school stage.”

Family Portraits Glasgow West End

Jake, Glasgow's West End

“Many thanks again for coming and recording such lovely images. We both had tears in our eyes looking through them... We would definitely plan to ask you back when the boys are older. I had a look of the series of photographs of Sisters at 11 and am taken with the idea of doing something similar.”

—The Brown Family, Glasgow

“The photos are amazing – thank you so much. The children really enjoyed the session, you put them at ease and as a result managed to capture all of their personalities so well in these beautiful photos.”

Ken Sharp and his wife Lesley have been successfully photographing children for over 15 years. Previously, Ken worked as a well known rock and celebrity photographer taking photographs of famous people on location worldwide.

He now brings this expertise to fine art family portraiture, where he takes beautiful photographs of children in the comfort of their own homes. This allows Ken to produce photographs of your family that are not only natural, personal and unique to you but also a lasting reminder of a particular time in your lives.

How we work

Ken and Lesley will visit you at home for a relaxed and fun photo-shoot that usually lasts between one to two hours, working with your children to produce a set of pictures for you to pick from. Within a week or two, we will send you a link to your own private video gallery so you can then choose your selection in the relaxed, pressure free comfort of your home.

Family holiday portraits

Having your children photographed while you are on holiday is the perfect time, as all the family are relaxed and together. Ken and Lesley will spend time with you, visiting your favorite places to ensure that you have a beautiful and permanent record of your time in Scotland.
