Portrait Services

Family photo two Many people aren’t keen on having their photograph taken – they feel self-conscious and uncomfortable. We guarantee that after just 10 minutes in the studio (or on location if you prefer) you’ll be relaxed, having a great time and wondering why you didn’t do this years ago! Light & Dark Photography specialise in capturing images of you at your best, relaxed, at ease and having a good time. We aim to give you a selection of images which will capture your character and reflect your true personality. Before the shoot we take the time to discuss the ‘style’ of portrait you’d like – contemporary or classic – or a mixture of the two. After each session you will be invited back to the studio to view a selection of between 20 and 30 images. Studio sessions are available daytime or evening, mid-week or weekends at times to suit you.
