Natural, lifestyle photography for schools.

I have worked as a family photographer for 10 years and before that as an experienced brand marketeer so I believe I have a good understanding of how to not only take really good, natural images avoiding the fake smiles / awkwardness / silliness that can often appear when someone gets a camera out around children, but how to make sure I get a clear understanding of what it is you want to visually communicate to parents, it’s important these images reflect and support your schools ethos and values. I can take both natural shots of the children but am also happy to work with you to create a set 'shot list' for me to work through on the day, which may included some staged shots to make sure I am capturing exactly what you want to communicate.

After your shoot I will deliver your images via download as both HIGH RESOLUTION JPEGs (print quality -perfect for brochures, leaflets, banners, articles, signage, packaging) and LOW RESOLUTION JPEGs (online quality - perfect for websites, social media, e-newsletters, email footers etc…) You can also request a Facebook cover collage of your favorite images too if you wish.

St Benedicts Catholic Primary School

"Louise was a pleasure to work with. She has took marketing photographs for our school website and prospectus. She was especially good at engaging with the children and really put them at ease to get the best from them. Louise took some amazing shots of the staff and children, she really captured how happy they are in our setting, she even got a lovely portrait shot of me. I could not recommend Louise highly enough - she was professional, patient and enthusiastic throughout."

The Rooms - Knutsford

Louise was fantastic and made all the team feel at ease and worked around our busy clinic environment with lots of client appointments in the mix which resulted in amazing lifestyle headshots of our staff here at our offices. We couldn't be happier.

Evidence For Learning

We hired Louise to take traditional staff headshots at her studio in Wilmslow then again to photograph our annual teacher training event in Birmingham for our clients. The quality of her photos were excellent and working with her was a breeze. We told her the basics of what we were hoping to capture and she ran around practically unnoticed getting everything we asked for, and more.

Williams Sillitoe

We instructed Louise to produce some photography for our new website relating to our commercial property business based in Wilmslow. Louise was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. She personally took the time to understand our business and how our website and the photography it incorporates would best reflect what we do. We were delighted with the results and the speed of turn around and I would absolutely recommend her for any work of this nature without hesitation!
