No poses; nothing staged – This is Reportage: Family

If you want your real family captured – no white studio backgrounds, no matching outfits with fake smiles on the beach – then you’re in the right place, as we feature the very best of documentary family photography. Our members all pride themselves on capturing you and your family totally naturally (though most are happy to do some ‘look at the camera’ group shots as well), and our awards are widely recognised as some of the toughest to win in the industry.

Family & Story Awards

For the best individual images we have our Reportage Family Awards (or ‘Family Awards’ for short). These are given to those exceptional, single captures – family moments captured with artistry and flair.

We also want to celebrate the skill of consistency, creativity and storytelling, so we also have our Family Story Awards for a series of 15 – 20 images of a single family. A Story can be told from a single one-hour family photoshoot, a ‘day in the life’ session, or it could tell the story of a family from birth to starting school; the possibilities are endless.
