We also specialize in our ever popular Cake Smash photo shoots to commemorate a child's 1st or 2nd birthday.

If you're looking for something fun, modern, and a little different, take a look at our "Box collection" photo shoot. The originator of the Box photoshoot in Bedford, our original box photoshoot collection is great fun and comes beautifully framed in your choice of frame ready to hang on your wall.

If you are after a high quality profile picture, for a website, social media page, book cover, brochure or agency, our headshot session is what you are after. A quick and professional headshot photography session providing your images in digital form, often the same day.

Ever thought of trying out modelling with a view to becoming a model, it's a tough business and not many earn a living from it, but we offer very affordable, no risk, model taster photography sessions so you can give it a try, or a discounted digital portfolio session to start you off with some high quality images for a model portfolio.

If you want a bit of escapism, our 'movie' or fantasy themed photoshoot might be for you, producing a professionally edited movie type poster.

If you want to boost your confidence, a boudoir photoshoot might be for you, a relaxed and gentle session at your own pace to build your confidence, and 'boudoir' doesn't mean you have to show flesh or wear something skimpy, it's all about feeling confident and sexy.

A warm welcome awaits you with a friendly atmosphere in a bright and engaging, modern and well equipped portrait photography studio.
