WHAT WE CAPTURE

We offer portrait photography sessions of babies and children, couples and pets.

Babies and children change so rapidly and so capturing special images at different stages gives you something to treasure when they’re all grown up.

Our couple shoots are popular with wedding couples in the build up to their big day, as an opportunity to get used to feeling relaxed in front of the camera.  But you don’t have to be getting married to get some gorgeous images captured of the two of you.

As for pets, we currently have three and both grew up with many more, and so understand how important a part your family they are (as well as knowing a technique or two for getting them to sit pretty for us!)

WHERE IT HAPPENS

Our portrait sessions are location rather than studio based.  We find that taking photographs in your home or garden, or in a favourite park, wood, beach or part of the city makes you far more relaxed, is far more enjoyable, and allows us to capture more interesting and varied images.

We are based in Newcastle upon Tyne and so typically shoot portraits in the Tyne and Wear area.  Favourite locations of ours include the Newcastle Gateshead Quayside, Jesmond Dene, Saltwell Park and Tynemouth, as all provide a multitude of interesting backdrops.  Newborn sessions typically take place in your own home.

HOW IT WORKS

Before any portrait shoot we will chat with you about what you want from your session, photographic styles you like and what you are likely to want to do with the images, so we can build up a comprehensive picture of your needs.  It may be that you already know where you would like the shoot to take place but, if not, we are happy to give advice on the best location for the type of images you are after.

The portrait shoot itself lasts around an hour and after the session we will send you electronic proofs so you can view the images at your leisure and decide which are your favourites without us breathing down your neck giving you a hard sell – something we can’t stand and never do!  We offer both prints and high resolution digital negatives of your images, and we can also offer stunning bespoke albums and wall art on request.  All the images you choose will be lovingly hand edited and retouched.
