Family Portrait Weekend!

This last weekend was a busy one for family portraits with three sessions in the morning alone. Saturday is an ideal day to come in together for that special photograph of close family or a larger group if celebrating a memorable occasion such as a milestone birthday or anniversary. 
If you would like to book a family portrait just give us a call on 01217 344480 and a £30 deposit (redeemable against your photographs) will secure you an  hour slot in the studio. If you don’t require a family portrait yourself at this time but know someone who would why not buy one of our family portrait vouchers as a lovely gift instead.

Multi print framed images

To make the photographs of your baby even more unique from your portrait scheme, we are able to make you a customised framed multi print of your portrait session. To make it even more special we can even add their hands or feet prints for you too.
Please contact us for more details, or let us know at the time of booking if the hands and feet aspect are of interest to you.


And remember – not all photographers are qualified but we are. This means that we have had our work assessed, are insured and have to comply with a strict code of conduct guaranteeing you great quality, professional results.


By bringing in your own toys,clothes and special items, allows us to take photographs that are significant to you enabling cute images like this!


We are proud to announce that we have introduced a new range of products to give you a wider choice of ways to present all of your images taken here in the studio.

Here is the first of our new lines: A baby storybook style album, which is individually designed for you and comes in its own handmade presentation box. This also comes with 8 mini-books (which would be ideal ‘bragging books’ for your close family!).

For more details please call the studio or email [email protected]


Just to let you know that all further posts and notifications will be made through our Facebook pages.

Thank you.

West Buckland School Prom 2009

West Buckland’s Year 11 pupils held their annual Prom at the High Bullen Hotel, Chittlehamholt on Tuesday evening. Guests arrived in style in various cars ranging from vintage soft tops to modern day sports cars. Due to the very warm weather conditions much of the time was spent outside before the evening got into full swing. After photographing couples arriving and groups of friends I took everyone up to the first tee for a large group photo. Once the meal was over everyone took to the floor and danced the night away.

Easter Portrait Update

With Easter just around the corner, baby portraits seem to be as popular as ever with around twenty sittings a week booking into our studio in Bear Street, Barnstaple. We have been as busy during the first three months of this year as we were in the lead up to Christmas!

We have photographed three sets of twins up to now which does prove to be quite demanding at times but also a lot of fun too! Our diary is currently booked for three weeks in advance, so ring now to book your Easter portrait sitting 01271 344480.
