Hello, I am Karen and I have been a PROFESSIONAL photographer since 2009. I started out photographing friends children which proved very popular. after more advanced training, I went into wedding photography.which quickly took off. After shooting hundreds of weddings all over the country, I have now gone full circle and am once again loving photographing children, families and babies. You can read more about our journey on page 6.

Pricing

The value of your photos is something that increases each year. We all buy or want stuff but that stuff won't mean a lot in twenty years time. As your children grow those fleeting moments captured forever will mean everything. Babies change within weeks. At first they almost look like sweet fragile little birds but pretty soon they are well fed little babies all chubby and smiling. We all love our children and know that they are the most valued before anything else in our life. They become your whole life. Nobody ever regrets paying for a professional photo shoot. I GENUINELY want you to have some really wonderful photos to love and pass down.

 

framed prints and beautiful albums are also available to purchase.

Portrait faq,s

 

Why should I have a Portrait

shoot ?

There may not be many opportunities to get your family on a photograph all together as often one of the family will be behind a camera or phone and it's usually the same person. Having a professional portrait shoot will provide you with those fantastic memories and good quality professional images for you to pass down as heirlooms or make fab wall worthy art for the walls. It will also foster a feeling of value and belonging for children of any age to see photos of themselves around the house. As they grow older they will realise you made those investments in professional photography for them.

what age is best for a baby shoot ?

Please see my newborn F. A.Q.'s over on the newborn page.

Where do the shoots take place ?

For family shoots, I would advise you choose somewhere you like to go as a family. A woodland walk or beach, somewhere you feel totally relaxed.we can also carry out shoots in your home which we can combine with outside shots to get two different looks. If you have a young baby we can carry out the whole shoot in your home.

What gear do you use ?

I use the best quality Canon lenses and camera's. I use an 85ml lens for beautiful soft light. A fifty for all those in between shots a 35ml for wider shots. I also use a macro and a Zoom lens depending on what the shoot is. Although I know how to use flash well, I hardly ever use flash for any of my lifestyle shots unless I absolutely need to. I carry one with me at all shoots but it tends to stay in my kit bag.

About us

Karen and Doug are both professional photographers based in Cambridgeshire and also married. They have been photographing Weddings, Portraits and commercial work since 2009.

It was during her career as a nurse in the operating theatres that Karen went into professional photography. "I knew I was in the wrong job when I was involved as part of the team in a very interesting operation but was more interested in one of the nurses new baby photos " She entered some of her Portrait work into a prestegious competition and won out of hundreds of photographers including professionals. The prize was a year long bespoke Photography course. Although Karen wanted to focus on children's photography, the course introduced her to the idea of shooting weddings and It wasn't hard to persuade Doug to join her. When they started out professionally they hoped someone may just like their work. Their relaxed personalities and easy going photography style meant that It quickly took off. They have now shot countless weddings. "We have met so many wonderful people, genuine lovely couples and families and also along the way, singers, actors, footballers. All kinds of faiths all kinds of personalities. We have had a blast.". In March 2024 they shot their final wedding and Karen has now gone full circle and is once again capturing new babies and families.

 

Karen is easy going, extremely calm and great with children. She loves her garden, practices yoga and also paints. She grew up in Suffolk in an arty family surrounded by brushes in jam jars but also spent five years living in America which influenced not only her photography style but her appreciation of good customer service. Cornwall and Scotland have a regular pull on the heart whenever there is a chance to travel.

Teens and

model shoots

 

Great for a teen Birthday gift.

 

I have worked with many models of all ages over the years and for some teens it's a dream come true to have a model shoot by themselves (parents welcome) or with a small group of teen friends, maybe with their bestie. They can have a really good time dressing up, outfit changes and feeling like they are on a real photo shoot. Pamper them even more with The luxury of Professional hair and make up before the session.
