Studio School photographer in Bristol for Nursery, Primary and Secondary students.

My passion is to capture those really important years that seem to fly by so quickly!

Is your little one starting "big" school this year? It is such a big milestone that is so important to capture! Maybe this is your child's first year at Pre School and their first ever school photographs! Or maybe you are just looking for some updated portraits of your children in their school uniform?

The photographs will be taken at my studio in Portishead, Bristol.  You are able to book a 15 minute time slot which will give us plenty of time to capture a variety of images of your children. Siblings are more than welcome to come and join in!

Once your child/children have had their photographs taken you will be able to view and choose which images you would like straight after your session.


Digital images will be available to purchase as well as matching print packages. Digital images will be delivered via email within two weeks and prints will ready for collection once they have arrived from the print lab.

I like to keep our packages as straight forward as possible as we think offering too many packages can sometimes be overwhelming! For this reason we only offer two sizes of prints which are a 5x7 (standard) and a 10x8 (large) print size.


If you are looking for extra prints/digital images on the day we will of course be able to arrange this for you.

I require a £10 deposit to secure one of our sessions, this will be deducted from the final balance on the day of your session.

If you wish to purchase extra prints/digital images this can be arranged whilst you are choosing your images. 

I  can't wait to see you all again this year!

I specialise in school photography in Bristol that captures your child's personality and showcases their individuality, rather than just another generic school portrait.

As a parent, I understand the frustration of receiving photos with crooked collars, messy hair, and unflattering angles. That's why I take the time to make sure every detail is perfect and your child feels comfortable and relaxed during the photoshoot.

At my photography studio in Bristol, I offer a personalised school photoshoot experience that ensures your child's unique qualities shine through in their photographs. You'll receive 15 photos to choose from in a personalised online gallery, and you can even purchase prints of the photo story to share with family and friends.

Don't settle for mediocre school photographs - choose a photographer who understands the importance of capturing your child's individuality. Contact me to schedule your child's school photo session at my Bristol photography studio.

I offer a variety of school props to choose from for your school photoshoot here in Portishead, Bristol.

You can choose from a vintage globe, chalkboards (which I can personalize using Photoshop after the shoot), science stools, apples, vintage books, large blackboards, vintage abacus, and other fun items to customize your photos!

I believe that school photos should be fun and creative, and that's why I offer these unique props to add a special touch to your child's photos.

These props are a great way to make your child feel comfortable and excited during the shoot, and they can also add personality and character to the final photos.

"Katie takes amazing photos - we had her take our daughter’s Y6 photos last year which were just beautiful so we were in no doubt about her taking her Y7 ones. Once again she took great shots - the school ones were due to be taken on the first day of school so I did not hold out much hope for a decent photo. Two weeks later and we finally get to see the school ones - as predicted terrible - she looks totally windswept and damp hair because of the rain that day. As they only have school photos taken in Y7 and Y12 will be counting on Katie for all the coming years for sure!"

I typically offer my services in August and September each year. I work with several local schools in Portishead and Pill, including St. Peter's, Portishead Primary, Trinity, High Down, St Joseph's Primary schools, Gordano, and St Catherine's. Of course, I am happy to work with any other schools in the Bristol area as well.

"Highly recommended! Was not happy with my daughters school photos so booked in for a session with Katie and have had some absolutely amazing school photos done! She made my daughter feel so comfortable ready for the photo shoot!"
