Families, for all ages.


Get ready for a fun and creative family portrait session like no other!

Join us for an exciting event where you and your family can unleash your artistic talents and create unique and personalised portraits of each other. We’ll provide a wide range of materials for you to use, allowing you to truly express your creativity.

Parents and children are invited to come together and collaborate in crafting one-of-a-kind family portraits.
In this session, we encourage you to style yourselves using the materials provided, letting your imagination run wild.

But here’s the twist: let your children take on the role of photographers!

See yourself through their eyes as they capture your essence in their own unique way.

This experience is not only special but also very unique, creating memories that will be treasured forever. As a collective, we will build a collaborative art gallery wall, showcasing all the final portraits curated by the youngest participants. With a myriad of materials at your disposal, the gallery will continually grow and evolve, reflecting the boundless creativity of our community.

Come and join us for a day filled with laughter, creativity, and the joy of seeing your family through a new lens.

We can’t wait to witness the magic you’ll create together!

Note: Please check the event details for specific timings. Places are limited so early booking is advised.

All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

This event is part of Photography Week at Vacancy Atlas.
