Hi, I'm Kate, a portrait photographer based in Cardiff specialising in beautiful photographs of women and their families. This is a luxury experience designed around you and how you would like to be photographed and seen.
The First Portrait Masters accredited ASSOCIATE in Wales - a guarantee of quality and high professional standards.
You may be wondering what our studio looks like and what happens on the day of your photo session. Coming soon is a video so that you can see for yourself how fabulous and unique our studio is!. We are also happy for you to book an appointment to come in, look around and chat about your photo session over a cup of coffee and cake.
Our studio is a large, bright contemporary apartment, converted from a 19th century pale stone building in Mount Stuart Square in Cardiff Bay. With it's high ceilings and large windows with plenty of natural daylight, it has the perfect balance of being a professional space with a welcoming, homely feel. It allows us to shoot contemporary images in a wide range of looks from light, lifestyle images to Vanity Fair and Vogue inspired images for both individuals and businesses.
The large main room has a kitchen area, pale wood flooring and plenty of space for shooting. You have your own private dressing/styling room with wardrobe rails, seating area and ensuite bathroom. We have a bedroom studio for more intimate, boudoir and bridal boudoir sessions. We are fully equipped with a stunning range of lighting and handpainted backdrops, inspired by the work of Annie Liebovitz and Peter Lindbergh. Painting my own backdrops has become a bit of an obsession whilst we wait to reopen this summer. I love that I can create something unique and distinctive for you with this ever growing collection.
Everyone who visits loves our studio. It's the kind of space where we can shut the door, and you can breathe and be yourself for a few hours. We love to immerse ourselves in creating beautiful images of you and those you love. A place filled with prosecco, cake, coffee, music and flowers (I have an obsession with silk flowers, they are everywhere!) but most of all filled with love. Because my team and I love what we do. We are passionate about giving you an amazing experience and showing you the best photographs of yourself you have ever seen.
Our studio has an all female team for your comfort. When our hair and makeup ladies have finished pampering you, they leave and then it will be just me or me and my assistant Carys, depending on the kind of photo session you have booked. We then guide you through your pre designed photoshoot and outfit styling. Alternatively, if you require a makeup change part way through our stylist can remain onsite. We only book one session a day so you can rest assured you have our undivided attention.
"You may think you are not photogenic, but that's simply not true. It's my job to guide you."
"I want to show you photographs that you love. When you are confident knowing you look and feel your absolute best, then you shine and stand a little bit taller - and that feeling is what I want to capture for you, images that you will be proud of, that you and your family will treasure for years to come."
Let's start designing your personal photo session, I can't wait to welcome you!
