Award winning, professional baby and children's photography




Beautiful portrait photographs, friendly personal service

Your photography session will be a fun, relaxed and enjoyable experience in the company of a talented professional team who are just passionate about creating beautiful photographs for you to treasure forever and who are dedicated to providing you with an exceptional service.  We know that it's possible to get a photo session more cheaply but low cost sesssions have the disadvantage of being time limited, often to an hour or less.  It can take children a while to settle in a new environment and the last thing we want is for a tight time limit to result in stress for the parents.  We want you to have plenty time to relax, to chat with us about any specific ideas you have and to enjoy the whole experience without watching the clock too much, and we want to have plenty of time to give us the best chance of capturing images you will cherish.  We have a strict limit of only two portrait sessions per day, hence the modest charge for our skill and time.   

Studio portrait photography session

An appointment will be made for your portrait session and a range of studio backgrounds is available for you to choose from, depending on the style of portrait you would like.  Alternatively, you may prefer a location or an environmental portrait session at a local park, woodland or other beauty spot.  Children in particular enjoy a environmental shoot as it allows them the freedom to play and express themselves, allowing their personalities to shine through and resulting in beautiful, natural photographs.  Our fee for an environment portrait session within our local area is from £100.  There is no time limit imposed on your portrait session and no limit to the number of images captured.

Framed photographs, canvas wraps, montage prints and wall art

Following your portrait session, an appointment will be made so that you can view your images at your leisure, along with a range of contemporary framing options which are available to display your portrait at its very best.  This appointment is included within the price of the session.  In addition to our range of beautiful frames, we offer canvas wraps, metallic effect prints and our new acrylics which are simply stunning in today's modern homes.  Alternatively, you might consider a montage of images which Alex will design for you, as it can be a difficult task to select just one photograph from all the images captured.  A montage of images is particularly suited to baby and children's photography, as very often many moods and expressions are captured during a single session.  Your montage print can be personalised with the child's name to make it a piece of artwork rather than just a photograph.

Professional, qualified MPA photographer in West Yorkshire area

We are both qualified MPA photographers and as a professional children's portrait photographer in West Yorkshire, Alex has been issued with a CRB disclosure which he feels is essential in order to give assurance to their parents that they are employing the services of someone they can trust.  The importance of this cannot be overemphasised.

Family and children's portraits

A studio portrait session costs just £95 to include your first 10-inch photograph and there is no time limit imposed on it.  You are welcome to bring a change of clothes for two completely different looks if you wish and with family portraits, we will be happy to take several different combinations so that you get the best possible value for money from your session.  If you would prefer an environmental shoot within the Castleford, Pontefract and Wakefield areas, this costs £100.  For sessions outside these areas, please contact us to discuss your requirements.
