Extraordinary Portraits was created by George Fairbairn after he had used his experience photographing bands and musicians for some of the UK’s biggest magazines and applied it to his own family Christmas portraits. George has continued to create these portraits of his own family every year for the family Christmas card. The response to this first image was tremendous and as a result Extraordinary Portraits was born.
An Extraordinary Portraits session isn’t like any other portrait session that you might have experienced. Each session is planned out and discussed between George and the family to ensure that the image created truly represents the family.
Most sessions are shot in a manner that makes it extremely enjoyable for children as they aren’t forced to sit still and smile. They are given a platform in which they can perform. The way the image is created ensures that every person and aspect of the finished image is absolutely perfect, giving you a perfect and unique family portrait.
