Soon to become a parent?  Why not book a Newborn shoot where we photograph your little one at under 14 days old where we capture that just born, curled up, sleepy stage which lasts for such a short time. 

We capture your personality in the Photographs we take. We are praised for the amount of time we spend with each client during the whole process from the initial consultation, the shoot, the viewing through to the no pressure sales.

We help you carefully select the right framing and presentation for your images according to your personal taste and home style and decor.

Here are a few Testimonials from our Portrait Photography clients

"I have four fabulous books from four different photo shoots that I've done with you. I enjoy looking at them often because of the wonderful memories you captured in the photographs. I especially enjoy watching a friends reaction as they page through one of the books. The first shoot was just me. I loved my album so much I couldn't wait to book another shoot with some friends who were travelling with me, then another when my whole family was together. Every shoot we did together was fun and the finished product made me really happy. You are a true professional with a special talent for making your subject feel comfortable in front of the camera. I'm looking forward to seeing you again to capture a special event as only you can do."

Judy Clydesdale

"Thank you John & Sandra for a wonderful photo shoot. We work with a lot of photographers in our business and you are the best! I'm so impressed by the quality of the images. The photo session was effortless and my press photos have never looked so good. Can't wait to shoot with you again. Best"

Don Nedler

"When I saw my Photos all I could say was WOW! Your patience, direction & eye for detail allowed you to capture the best images, pictures I could only imagine. The quality of your work is outstanding and you even helped us with the extremely difficult choice of trying to choose the right photo! I would have no hesitation about recommending you for your highly professional and friendly service."

Robyn Wilkinson "

John & Sandra Parris have surpassed our expectations yet again. The photos they have taken of our beautiful baby boy are just outstanding. We feel so privileged that John & Sandra have captured the most precious moments in our lives as they also photographed our magical Wedding Day. Their skill, patience, expertise and professionalism are second to none . We love seeing the reaction of our family & friends when they see the photos. Just amazing. We have recommended them to many friends and we hope to visit their studio many more times in the years to come."
