Here’s your chance to win a family photo session with portrait studio Nousha worth £1000…
Think family portraiture, think staid poses, dreadful ‘best’ outfits with not a rogue hair out of place and rictus smiles. Parents love to immortalise their offspring on canvas but there is a way to bring joy, life and even a glorious piece of artwork into your life, so you don’t have to relegate your children’s photos to the downstairs loo.
Step forward Lionel Cherruault, who, together with his wife Claire, runs photographic studio Nousha in Clapham. Where Nousha offers something different from the run-of-the-mill format of traditional family photography is that the imagery is thought about in terms of how it will fit in with a client’s living space. The photographs become more than just visual representations of family members, but are integral to the design and interiors of a home.
Children change in the blink of an eye and the idea of capturing those special, fleeting moments in time that can then be immortalised on your wall in a cool and stylish way compels many clients to come to Nousha. ‘We weren’t in the market for some portraits,’ says one client Nick Steele. ‘We love our children dearly but reckon that we already spend enough on them. However, we have just hung eight of their pictures in our home and don’t resent a single penny we spent. Friends and family comment not just on the quality of the shots, but the way Lionel has captured the personality of each child at that moment. We will treasure these photographs forever, and they finish our sitting room off in stunning contemporary style.’
The prize includes one family photo session, with three digital negatives.
Competition closes at midnight on 6 October 2019
