School photos without a fixed grin or wonky tie in sight.

Do you look forward to seeing the annual school pictures of your little ones looking all smart and grown up? But then your heart sinks when you open the package to find them just not quite looking as you’d expected. Their natural smile that usually greets you at the school gates is replaced by a fixed grimace. Ties sit a bit wonky. Jumpers tell the hidden story of what they ‘actually’ ate for lunch and it’s obvious that no-one had the chance to brush their hair before they sat down. 

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could capture them truly as you know them and still looking neat and tidy and just downright gorgeous in their uniforms? Everyone wants pictures that document how much their children have changed in a school year. Family members especially love waiting for the yearly print they can proudly display on their sideboard. And when it’s their first year in Reception. Wow. That is the most exciting time. Their first ever school photo. That gets everyone reaching for the box of Kleenex.

I have a huge passion for capturing the school photos that every parent wants and deserves. Instead of the usual couple of minutes, we spend 15 minutes outside in a local park where I can give you the personal touch and tailor the session to suit your child. Together we can make sure their hair is right, uniform is clean and enjoy hanging out together, getting a few pictures that you really love – and not a wonky tie in sight!​​

​“Seeing my son warm to you and happily posing naturally for the pictures was brilliant. So nice to see a photographer genuinely make an effort with my child who can sometimes be a bit shy.” Linda Trimmings
“Tess is a brilliant photographer and a lovely person! Everything was well organised for the shoot and my little daughter felt very comfortable being photographed in her first school uniform! Highly recommended!!!” Marzena McCarthy
“Tessa managed to capture our twin girls perfectly in their school uniform shoot, they are images we will treasure. Thank you.” Victoria Hemmett
