What is Portrait Photography?
This form of photography is sometimes called portraiture. Essentially it is a photograph of a person or a group of people where the photographer captures the mood and personality of the subject. The main emphasis will be of their expression. Although portraiture normally focuses on the subjects face, the entire body and the background or the context (environment) can be included. This can often cross lines with Corporate Portraiture where a photographer will be called into a company to take images of their staff withing the work environment.
At Peter+Jordan photography we strive to stick to the above however, we will endeavor to photograph what you want. Our style of photography is going to be very similar to what you see in the various galleries on the pages within this site. You can read more about how we see this form of photography in our about section.
What is family portrait photography?
Family portrait photography is the same as the above, but we will capture what we see as the essence of your family. We can do our session offsite at your home, in a picnic area or fishing at your favourite dam, the list would be endless. We will be capturing those special moments in time with your most loved ones. We will assist you in posing the family, ensuring you are all looking at the camera. Family portraiture, particularly with young kids can be a little stressful, but allow us to be the directors of the shoot to take the stress of you.
What is Animal Portrait Photography?
Animal Portrait Photography would be exactly the same as normal portrait photography as we would be capturing your favourite pet or pets in a similar way to that of a human.
What is senior photography?
Senior Photography are essentially photos taken in the senior years of school. These sessions are very common in the USA, they are used in graduation announcements, year books, to give to parents and family or as a reminder of these most influential years of your life.
We do not really use the term senior photography in South Africa, many might even call it matric farewell photography.
How do Peter+Jordan Photography interpret senior photography? As we are South Africans we will put our spin onto it. We would put anyone in the age range of 16-20 in their senior education years, be they at school, college or university.
We will be discussing more ideas on the about page but in essence we would like to capture these moments be it on the sports field, park dam or river, with your guitar, at school, campus or in our studios. Your choices of venue are limitless.
These are the years where you will probably looking your best and although you will have hundreds of photos of you taken by your friends and family we would suggest having a few professional images taken too. You will probably want an album to remind you of your formidable years and so many wish that they could go back down memory lane with a set of printed professional images.
What is boudoir photography?
Boudoir Photography is a form of intimate photography. This style of photography is perfect as a gift to yourself or your partner that has everything.

What is wedding photography?
Wedding photography is the taking of photos of the activity relating to the nuptials of all cultures. Depending on the photographic packages offered or chosen, this can include an engagement photography session, a boudoir photography session. These images would then be used for announcements or thank you cards. The boudoir session photos might be given to the groom on the morning of the wedding to show him what is going to be coming down the aisle, not that he will need much reminding, but it is that extra special gift.
The wedding preparation might be photographed with the bride and groom getting ready. The wedding ceremony and reception will then also be covered. The couples are then usually given the choice of the cake being cut as well as the first dance.
Peter+Jordan Photography have heard many wedding horror stories where brides have tried to save a little money and gotten their close friends and family to take images on this special day, people that are not that familiar with wedding photography. The results can be tragic, never trust an amateur photographer with the memories of such an important day. You can read up more in the about section as to what we offer and how we view the wedding we shoot. As a reminder the images depicted in our gallery will be a good indication of the style of wedding photography that we will be offering you on this important life changing day.

Newborn photography is relatively new in South Africa but very popular in the USA where it is well established for over fifteen years or so and in the United Kingdom around five years.
We typically like to schedule a newborn session as soon as possible, around five to ten days after birth. Although we are more than happy to take these pictures later, we strongly recommend that you have this session within the first two weeks. The reason being is that it makes a huge different in the type of poses we are able to position the baby in and whether they will like it or not but the age of your newborn will dictate how the photo session is going to run.
