Manchester Portrait           Photographer

When you are looking for a Manchester Portrait Photographer, you want someone who takes the time to get to know your kiddo, gets down to their level and treats them the way their favorite Auntie would.  We like to send videos a couple of days before our session if your little one is nervous so they will recognize us when they come to the studio. We find out their favorite snacks and have them on-hand ready for them. We will even incorporate their favorite stuffy to help us take pictures (and include them in the photos because we know you want some of those shots too!). We spend the time getting to know your child because we know THEY are the ones we really need to win over. 

Thinking about a cake smash? We'll send you a list of options!
Want to incorporate a flower crown? We'll hook you up! 
Not sure what to have them wear? Borrow from our Client Wardrobe!
Want some shots of the entire family? We always encourage it!

Whether they are a new sitter, turning a new age, or simply growing up faster than your heart can handle, we will make sure to create stunning images that you'll be excited to hang on your walls. 

It's a hard question because the answer changes. At one time it was their chubby arm rolls then you blinked and now it's the way scrunch their nose when they smile. Milestone portraits aren't limited to the first year of your child's life around here because your kid is worth documenting at every stage.


                                                         What is your favorite thing about your kid?

"Kathleen took beautiful photos of me and my sweet boy, and she was wonderful to work with! She made the session fun and stress-free, and she was very easy going and understanding with my one year old. I love the light, airy style of her photography, and she captured my little guy so well!"                                 
                                           -Allison A.


Any age! We only have these kids living with us for 18 years and we want to remember all of their quirky smiles long after that. Many of our clients like sitter sessions, one year sessions, birthdays, breastfeeding milestones, and child portraits. 

What age should I get a Milestone portrait done?

Many photographers out there will take pictures of just your child but we believe that the family deserves to celebrate this milestone as well. We will start with the pre-cake photos of your baby individually and with siblings, parents, even a set of grandparents if you'd like. Then we will do the cake smash and see just how messy your little one can get!

How does the Cake Smash go?

That is completely up to you! Many clients like to do it at the end of their breastfeeding or chestfeeding journey to commemorate their special bond. Feeling shy about doing this in front of the camera?  I am a Certified Lactation Counselor as well as a photographer so I am respectful of this sacred time and act merely as a fly on the wall. 

What age should my baby/toddler be for a breastfeeding/Chestfeeding milestone session?

from cake smash to breastfeeding journey, your manchester Portrait photographer is with you for all the big moments in life.
