My name is Katie Forshaw – I’m so pleased you’re on this page as I can tell you about myself, my passion for photography and the joy of creating special memories for you.


I’ve always had an interest in digital art and photography and started my first venture in the digital art environment, illustrating bespoke concept images for my clients. An appreciative worldwide audience, with many commissions based on recommendation inspired me to launch Make Me Magical. 

Since starting, I have gone on to win several Gold Awards for my work and also Nominee for Photography of the Year for Illustration 2020 with the SWPP.

After investing in my first DSLR camera and discovering my ability to capture the moment, I combined my digital skills to enhance and transform my photographs into something really special. This makes my work a natural choice for those who want something totally different from the standard photograph.


In 2019 I opened my own studio, based in Portishead, Bristol where I’m ready to welcome you and your family for a photo shoot. There’s a whole range of backdrops, props and costumes available to enhance your experience. I hold various Creative Sessions throughout the year.  For example Bluebell sessions, Easter, Back to School, Superheroes and Christmas minis to name a few.


Being a mum of two, I really enjoy working with children to create priceless memories for everyone. I offer engagement and wedding photography, cake smashes, fine art portraits, boudoir, and model portfolio sessions. Any of these can be in my studio, your own home or on location. I’m also available for events, corporate and product photography. I have full public liability insurance and am member of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers and nominee for Photography of the Year 2020.


I hope you have time to have a look at some of my portfolios and see if my style is something you would like for your own memories.
