If you are looking for something a little different and fun for the whole family why not book one of our Photo Box sessions at Harpur Studio.

Box Sessions are a fun and creative way of getting photos that really show a person’s personality. Kids love to play in the box, and adults do too! The whole family can let their wild side run free, bearing in mind that what ever happens in the box, stays in the box! The entire session is completed within the box. Our photographer then puts his artistic skills to work to create a unique piece of art which will look amazing up on your wall, a centerpiece for any modern home, and a talking point for years to come. The box session is for everyone to enjoy including the kids, parents, grandparents, and even your family pet.
