“A picture paints a thousand words...”
Truly the inspiration behind our photography is that art of a carefully composed picture which tells some kind of story: an emotion; a special moment in time; an atmosphere; an action that can mean so much; the essence of character; just capturing something really beautiful- a colour, a change of light...
Our stories into photography are quite different. Whilst Mark’s experience spans decades, including teaching it pre-digital age using all sorts of smelly chemicals and dark rooms, Sharon’s passion is much more recent but no less intense! Being married, we sometimes feel that we live, eat and breathe photography but our skills are permanently evolving and new ideas constantly buzz as a result.
“Time stands still for no man”
Both of us are trained secondary school teachers and we have three wonderful, growing children. Sharon’s specialism in newborn photography and Mark’s in childhood photography reflect our skills in working with children and babies. We have firsthand experience of a realisation that these times are so precious; time stands still for no man, or baby or child. We love working with them to create natural images which capture each one’s unique character to stand the test of time.
Working with you
Quality and style are the key driving forces for all our portrait sessions – we want you to love your experience and your images. Our approach during any shoot is to empathise and to guide you through flattering poses so that you can relax and enjoy it – the best pictures are created when you are at ease. Post-shoot we love adding those artistic touches to enhance the full potential of your portraits. In addition, our past profession as teachers embedded a sense of efficiency and organisation in us. Whether your photo shoot is an individual portrait session with a tiny, delicate week old baby, a group of lively teenagers, or a family celebration, we are able to manage the whole thing from start to finish for your ease of mind. A truly bespoke service.
“Walls have ears”
Listening to our customers, we have learned that lots of them prefer natural, location style portraits. There’s nothing like capturing a moment in a real location – your home, garden, a favourite place, the great outdoors – we love it, too. Your images will be different from those that adorn the walls of so many. However, equally, beautiful, artistic images can be created with our high specification studio equipment which we are able to bring anywhere – it’s also not weather dependent so if a specific date or time is the key aspect of your portrait session, you can be sure to capture your moment come rain or shine.
All you have to do is contact us and tell us what you want.
Based just outside Stratford-upon-Avon, our photography takes us into Warwick, Leamington, Kenilworth, Alcester, the rest of Warwickshire, the Midlands and the Cotswolds.
