PORTRAITS

From the magic of childhood and joys of nostalgia to the bliss of family love: our work is really about emotion. When it comes to enjoying your photos, expect giggles, goose bumps and possibly even a tear or two.

Sarah gets in to the mix within a child's world very naturally and manages to capture them while their imaginations run wild... and she runs wild with them, too!" 

WHAT TO EXPECT

We love shooting and filming in family homes, perhaps while you’re preparing Saturday pancakes, reading stories together or building dens behind the sofa. We might venture into your garden too, or look for treasure in the woods, take an afternoon stroll by the river, or even go a little bit wild on the moors.

There’s no need to worry about being relaxed in front of the camera – our work is a million miles from ‘say cheese’ studio photography. Instead, we’ll create the kind of calm and comfortable atmosphere that leads to natural images with none of the nerves.

With Package One, we will set up a viewing page on our website for you to choose your images. For all the other packages, we’ll invite you in for a viewing at our Hebden Bridge office. You’ll also get the chance to chat about things like framing, albums or reprints, and all the other things we can take care of for you. If your shoot is to take place further than 45 miles away from Hebden Bridge, West Yorks, travel costs will be added to the package.

a note on our wallets

Like everything we do, there’s a story behind our wallets.  We love modern digital photography and the creative freedom it gives us, but our wallets are our way of recapturing the old-school thrill of collecting your photos from a developer. We wanted to recapture that special feeling, and the feeling of having an actual ‘thing’ to take home and get our hands on. It turns out our customers miss that stuff too. Your fine art prints and the wallet we present them in are that ‘thing’.

Importantly for us, the wallet itself was designed and made by people we know right here in Hebden Bridge.  We want you to enjoy having it to hand, passing it around, and even smelling the ink if that’s what moves you most. That’s because our finished product is never just the images on the paper: it’s also the goose bumps they produce.

"We are so glad that we first contacted Sarah to photograph our family when the girls were very young and since then she has created for us a cherished document of our children as they grow. The photos that Sarah has taken are so special as she uniquely portrays the girls as individuals as well as their relationship as sisters. The shoot is a relaxed and fun occasion which for the children feels more like an adventure. Sarah manages to capture those magical moments in time, which as the girls grow, become ever more precious".
