About Your Photographer
I'm Becky, the founder of Petite Portraits Photography studio.
I am a registered and award winning member of The Guild of Photographers & BANPAS (Baby & Newborn Photography Association) which promotes safe working practices for baby photographers across the UK. Over recent years we have received various accolades for our beautiful imagery including the highly sought after Gold award for our Maternity work. So rest assured, when you book a photo shoot with Petite Portraits, you are in good hands!
The safety of my baby clients is of the utmost importance to me and as a result, I have also undertaken extensive newborn photography posing safety training and hold full insurance, I was also trained by the UK's top photographers, including Vogue magazine's recommended newborn photographer, Manchester's premier award winning photographer and trainer, the UK's top lighting guru, Gary Hill and one of the top UK children's photographers, Lisa McCormick.
A BIT ABOUT ME
I'm a busy mum of four who before becoming a full time professional photographer, worked in education as both a teaching assistant and then later as a college lecturer working with children with additional needs. I loved my job and I loved working with all the amazing young people I met throughout my career but after the birth of one of my children, I decided to follow my dreams and retrain. After a lot of hard work, I finally achieved my goals and opened my first studio. I'm now in my fourth studio and everytime I open the door and see all the teeny tiny props and outfits I can't help but smile!
WHY WHAT I DO IS SO IMPORTANT
I love meeting all the families I am lucky enough to work with and helping them to capture those precious images of their growing or established family. The love and the humour of families is the most beautiful subject to capture on camera...but it's one that is ever changing! Children grow so fast and family dynamics change. Yet sadly with the introduction of camera phones...too many memories get lost in the digital highway. As parent's we snap away with our iPhones, only to then lose those memories as your phone breaks or you lose your handset. Phone insurance replaces the handset but not those precious memories. That's why it's now even more important than it has ever been to make sure you immortalise each step of your journey as a family with professional photos! And don't keep them on that USB....get them printed out and onto you walls! Enjoy looking back at the journey you are on!
Get in touch today and together let's make sure that you have a wonderful record of all those amazing times, even years after they have gone!
I look forward to meeting you and your family soon
