My clients realise that family is their greatest treasure. They invest in memories that will last a lifetime. They make a family investment.
Your family legacy
Recent years have made many of us stop and think about our real priorities in life. We sat down and thought about why we ran our business.
We found that our values underpin all that we do. Here they are (so that you know how we work):
- Family are important
- Providing genuine service is more satisfying than making a quick sale
- We like quality and things that last
- We only sell what we like
- We want you to enjoy your portraits every day
- We want your great-grandchildren to love your portraits too
So, we have a very simple goal: To help you invest in your family legacy.
We help you create memories of your loved ones that will last a lifetime. To have portraits that will be heirlooms for generations.
You can read all about our portrait experiences, and how we come to your home on this website.
Investment In Memories
The Portrait Experience
This is where we come to your home or favourite location. We capture your photographs and turn them into beautiful portraits.
You can read all about the experience here: Portrait In Your Own Home.
Booking an experience means that we come to you. Afterwards, you purchase only the portraits that you fall in love with.
No hard sell. No minimum order.
Old Master's Collection
If you are looking for something exclusive then this is the collection for you! This is a family investment that will be a talking point for generations.

Fine Art Prints
Enjoy your portraits on a lightweight canvas. This high-quality cotton canvas faithfully reproduces the natural painting canvas. We use pigments to colour the canvas and hold its colour and black. Our Painter Canvas is archival rated at over 100 years.
Your canvas is then varnished and framed with one of our decorative wooden frames.
With every Painter Canvas, we gift you a digital copy of the print in the size of canvas that you buy.
Decorative Wooden Frames:
Old Masters' Canvas
A luxury walnut treasure box made specifically for your matted fine art prints.
Each box is beautifully crafted with a personalised engraving on the hinged lid. We use only top-quality, sustainably sourced, American Walnut. Inside the velvet interior and satin ribbon complete the piece.
Your Treasure Box provides a safe place to keep your memories.
You choose which size of box you prefer: 20 prints or 30 prints. You also receive a complimentary digital copy of the portraits included.
We offer a modern and traditional storybook.
The Modern Book is a lay flat glossy book with thick pages. Every portrait is carefully set to give maximum impact. A beautiful collection of your portraits bound within an elegant and stylish book. Handmade in Italy.
The Favola is a traditional handcrafted book. Your portraits are printed onto handmade Amalfi paper at the Amalfi mill in Italy. We use limited edition, 100% pure cotton Amalfi pages, with décollage edges. They are then hand-sewn together with a visible stitch. Finally, it is wrapped in a luxury genuine Italian cowhide leather “Etrusco” wrap. The overall size of the Favola is approximately 12 by 15 inches.
Please note: due to the way in which both the books are created they are only rated at 40 years. Although, if carefully treasured they will last longer.
Frequently Asked Questions
What if I do not like my Portraits?
We sell with a promise of “BUY WHAT YOU LOVE”. We aim to make portraits that you cannot resist!
If for any reason you don't like your portraits, we suggest you not buy anything that you don't love. There is absolutely no obligation.
What if I have to reschedule my session?
I understand that sometimes things do not go to plan and I cannot come to your home. I try to be as accommodating as possible and allow for a re-schedule.
Let me know as soon as possible and we will agree on a new date that works for us both.
How far in advance do we need to book?
We have clients booking for next week and some 2 or 3 years in advance. The best thing is to book a day that is best for you. So, get in contact and let’s get our diaries together!
What kinds of payments do you take?
I take all credit and debit cards, PayPal, mobile payments (e.g. ApplePay), and Bank Transfers.
I do not accept cheques.
Are there any hidden charges we should know about?
Absolutely not, no way, not ever!
Hidden charges and misleading small print are one of the things I despise most. You will not experience any of that with us!
If you have any questions about any part of your experience then please ask. The contract you sign before your session also explains these items and more.
As always I am happy to answer any questions.
Do you do framed prints instead of a framed canvas
Yes, we do. Our Old Masters' Collections are based around a beautiful framed canvas. Our families love them and they are becoming so popular.
We also carry a range of other family investments in our À la carte menu.
Do you charge for travel and other expenses?
I do not charge for travel or expenses within Mainland UK.
For our international clients, I do make a charge for transport and accommodation. This will be agreed upon with you beforehand and will be 'at cost’.
