Otis - Yorkshire Portrait Photography

'Oh wow, is this all for me?!' a little voice squealed from the top of the path.  Otis raced down and immediately sat in his little tipi we'd created for him.  We held a competition earlier this year to win one of our 'Dream For Life' shoots & Otis was the lucky boy who was picked from the hat.  His Mum had entered on his behalf and described how Otis enjoyed being part explorer, part super hero.  He is full of so much joy and wonderment, we just loved spending time with him whilst he raced round the woods!  His sister Willow came along too to help our intrepid explorer.  Otis, Willow and their parents are moving to the States next year, so our shoot has captured a little slice of their time here in Yorkshire.

As we were packing up after the shoot Otis asked 'Are you coming back to my house for sandwiches?'
This little chap could melt anyone's heart, and we all shed a happy tear in the viewing....

Mini Sessions - Yorkshire Portrait Photography

We're reaching that time of year, when the light is golden, you can see your breath in the morning, and stews and soups are the comfort food of choice!  It's also one of our favourite times of year for our portrait photography.  Leaf crunching, puddle splashing, scarves, wellies & bobble hats all set against those beautiful autumnal hues.

If you've been thinking about booking a portrait shoot with us, we're going to be holding our Wild Things In The Woods mini portrait sessions in the October half term.  These taster sessions have always proved to be very popular, and give you a good idea of what we're all about!  We're so pleased to be holding them down in Hardcastle Crags, Hebden Bridge, a location we love.  We will be setting up camp very close to Gibson Mill.  Each mini session will be for 20 minutes, and it's £45.00 which includes a complementary 9"x6" fine art print (the regular cost for our Life In The Great Outdoors sessions is £150 with a £50 credit towards display products).  We'll be setting up a bell tent, and we're really pleased that we'll be joined by children's author Liz Flanagan who will be reading from her new book Dara's Clever Trap from 12-2pm.

The sessions will run from 11am-4pm on Wednesday October 29th at Hardcastle Crags.  If you would like to book your wild things a place, please email, or call 07912 325 833.

We'd love to see you down there!

Diya & Amba - Portrait Shoot

We took a trip down to Surrey a few weeks ago for a portrait shoot with the gorgeous Diya & Amba.  Sisters, cohorts, kindred spirits.  We were joined by their Grandad, and took a trip to Carshalton Lavender and then strolled in the park.  We had a thunderstorm, outfit changes, Frozen renditions, and a lot of dancing!  In our portraits, we love capturing little characters and going with them wherever the shoot takes us.

If you're thinking about booking a shoot with us, but want to find out a bit more, how's about booking one of our taster sessions first.  We are holding our Wild Things In The Woods mini shoots on October 29th down in Hardcastle Crags, Hebden Bridge.  If you'd be interested in booking in your little explorer, just call on 07912 325 833 or email us at  You can find out a bit more information at this link. 

Have a great week everyone!
