We absolutely love photographing children with their instruments. Any age over 5, any instrument. 

We love to see the smile & the pride on the face of the child when we show them their photos on the back of the camera.

We usually hear “Oh WOW!”

Not only are these photos simply stunning, but they are a permanent record of this time of their lives, and most importantly,

they give your child an amazing sense of pride & self confidence.

That, in itself, is PRICELESS!

What our past clients have had to say about us. 

“Karen called me within a day of enquiring about a session with Dean, and booked a time that suited me. On arrival I was straight into hair makeup with the very very talented Carla Zakrzewski and talked about what I wanted out of the shoot. Everyone was chatty friendly and open to my ideas. Both Karen and Dean were very professional and great at making me feel comfortable, I think we even had a chat about the GFC whilst I was posing in lingerie which surprisingly didn’t even seem wierd haha. After the shoot it was a very simple selection process, Dean has great skills in colour, Photoshop and bringing the most out in a photograph. the prints arrived in a beautiful box within the week and they looked so amazing, and once my partner got a hold of them lets just say he hasn’t left me alone since.”

“Thank you Dean & Karen for my photo shoot on Friday morning with you. I was a great way to spend my 4th Wedding Anniversary!

You were both very welcoming & made me feel very comfortable, even after 3 years of hating my body after having my son & dared me to be bold with a portrait style I would never imagine I would do!

I cannot wait to see the finished images.

PS/: Dean… You are a very passionate fellow BRIT!!!”

“I picked up my photos from the post office yesterday afternoon. They are just beautiful.

Many thanks to you both for a wonderful experience. I must also thank your makeup artist for being so friendly and welcoming. Not to mention what an awesome result she achieved for me. I am sure I will treasure these photos for a long time to come.

I would recommend this experience for anyone.
