School Photographer in Bristol

School photography can be hit and miss.

At school there will be hundreds of children to photograph in a single day and that means limited time to get it right - the personal touch of a commercial company can be sometimes missing.

Turned up collars, wonky ties, lunch on the face and hair all over the place are just some of the things you don't want to have in your photographs!

With me, you will have school photographs you really want, not ones you felt obliged to purchase.

At my photography studio in Bristol I take time to make sure everything is perfectly presented.  Your child will be put at ease, and made to laugh and be posed and photographed, giving you a total of 20 photos to choose from on your personalised online gallery.​

These school photographs make great gifts for the family too!

You can purchase prints from the photo story within your gallery too!

"Lovely school pics of my two and even managed to coax a smile out of the older child! Thank you x"

I have lots of school props to choose from for my school photoshoots here in Portishead, Bristol.

A vintage globe, chalk boards (which can be personalised using Photoshop after the shoot) science stool, apples, vintage books, large blackboard, vintage abacus and various other fun things to personalise your 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!"
