Most of us are mothers and photographers, and know how quickly time flies and how important it is to capture the special moments of our children’s lives. From their first steps to their first words, these moments are precious and fleeting.

That’s why we started offering nursery and primary schoolphotography services in the North East of England and Surrounding areas such as Newcastle, Durham, Gateshead and Middlesborough. We wanted to help parents and nurseries preserve the memories of childhood and create lasting keepsakes that families can treasure for years to come.

As photographers, we understand the importance of creating a safe and comfortable environment for children. That’s why we work closely with nursery staff to ensure that each photo shoot is well-planned and organised, with minimal disruption to the children’s routines.

During the photo shoot, we focus on capturing the unique personalities and expressions of each child. From the giggles and grins to the serious and thoughtful moments, we aim to create a collection of images that truly reflect the child’s individuality and spirit whilst in a professional setting.

After the shoot, we carefully edit and retouch the photos to ensure that they are of the highest quality. We provide parents and nurseries with online gallery of the photos so that they can view and purchase at an affordable cost.

We believe that photography is an invaluable investment in a child’s life. It’s a way to capture the special moments of childhood and create lasting memories for families and staff. As mothers and photographers in the North East of England, we are honoured to be a part of this journey.



Hi! I have been a photographer for over 15 years and can honestly say no day is the same and thats what I love about my job. I get to meet the most amazing little people as well as their families and capture those special moments that last a lifetime. Ive worked with families for years and understand what I need to do to make the children laugh and get those natural smiles. Needles to say Im not ashamed to act silly to get those real giggles. In fact, I look forward to it. Everyone needs a bit of silliness sometimes to brighten their day.



Hi Im Gill. Im a photographer and a mum of two children. I have photographed families and newborns in my home studio for over 10 years but just love getting all the cheeky smiles from the nursery and school children. Nothing makes me happier than capturing those natural giggles.
