PORTRAITS

It’s the gift of a moment caught in time. A moment that stops your heart, makes you smile or takes you by surprise. The expression that almost escaped, the laughter, the daydream, serious contemplation or pure cheekiness.

A photo captures a moment and gives you the chance to visit it again and again.

The artist’s eye for seeing the moment, the professional’s years of experience and the knack of creating an environment that puts you at ease and lets the moment emerge - these are the three elements that work together to create beautiful portraits to treasure. This is what I offer you through Lion & Cub Photography.

I accept a limited number of new clients each month to ensure I offer each a unique experience. I’d love to have the chance to speak with you about the photographs you’d love to have taken. Your personal portrait session can be casual, glamorous or in corporate style or may be a professional actor’s headshot or for a model’s comp card. Your finished image will be perfect for use on social media, your website or for other professional requirements. 

We will create photos that you admire and are proud to display in your home or to represent your brand online. A combination of amazing lighting, the appropriate facial expression and a level of specialist retouching will make you look exceptional and improve your profile. Our specialist production team ensures your photos are produced to the highest quality, including albums, photo books, frames and digital images.
