Large Family Pictures

Large Family Pictures with the Inglis Family

Whether it’s for a special occasion or you just want to get the whole family together for a photo shoot session, the Philip Charles studio can comfortably shoot up to 15. Therefore, you can bring along the whole family from the oldest member to the youngest. We recently welcomed the Inglis family to the Philip Charles Studio to update their large family pictures.

All of the generations came along to capture their growing family. We started the shoot with the main shot of the whole family together in different set ups. We then broke it down into smaller family groups, the children and the couples. Once you become Mum and Dad, Grandma and Grandad, you often forget that you are a couple too. We always include couple shots in to our sessions to get lovely portraits of just the two of you. The Inglis family were brilliant to work with and embraced the whole experience. Below are just a few of the images from their shoot.

If you would like to bring along your family to a photo shoot session, please contact the studio on 01827 215 707, or scroll down to the enquiry form.

Family Portraits Welcoming Baby Sister

Studio Family Portraits to Welcome Baby Sister

We recently had the pleasure of shooting this lovely family to update their family portraits following the arrival of their baby girl. As you would imagine, the little one took centre stage, but standing by her baby sister was doting big sister.

I can honestly say, I don’t think I have ever seen a stronger bond between sisters. Throughout the shoot and image viewing session, big sister was there checking on her, and on hand to help. During the shoot, we shot a variety of set ups with the four, followed by a series of shots of the sisters together. This was a lovely shoot, with a lovely family capturing this very precious time.

Wedding Photography Testimonial

Amazing Wedding Photography Testimonial from Bride and Groom

We had to share this amazing wedding photography testimonial we received from one of our Bride & Groom’s:

“We first met Phil at a friend’s wedding and immediately were drawn to his warmth, humour and how he made everyone feel at ease whilst photographing. When it was our turn a year later we had no doubt who we wanted to document our special day. We had 2 meetings with Phil before the big day, who explained the process clearly and in depth so to capture our day as we wanted it.
On the day of the wedding he was accompanied by a second photographer so was able to capture bridal and groom preparation.
Throughout the day Phil worked efficiently so we were able to spend time enjoying our day too, and captured beautiful photos.
After the wedding Phil and his team were quick to work on the photos and send us a link in able to decide on our wedding album.

After the birth of our little boy we went to a newborn photo shoot with Phil. This was a wonderful experience. Phil was amazing with our son and so patient. He took his time and we did not feel rushed or under pressure to settle our son when he woke and needed feeding. The photos came back better than we could have expected.

We cannot speak highly enough of Phil, Vicky and the rest of the team who have captured the two most precious days of our lives.
Liz and John Hadgkiss”

It has been true pleasure working with Liz and John, and very humbled by their kind words. Below are a few images from their big day at Castle Bromwich Hall Hotel. You can also click here to see the blog of their wedding. If you would like to speak to us about your wedding photography, please call us on 01827 215 707, or scroll down to the enquiry form.

Studio Family Portraits

Returning Bride & Groom for Studio Family Portraits

There is nothing more satisfying when customers return to the studio. We especially love having our Brides & Grooms coming back to us with their growing family, for their studio family portraits. Seeing families grow, and choosing to return to us is an honour (even though it does make us feel rather old seeing the children grow up so fast).

We recently welcomed Mike and Lisa back to the studio with their gorgeous daughter and son. We had the pleasure of recording their special day in March 2013. They contacted us to update their family photos, prompted by the request of a family member needing an up to date family photo for a special gift. Therefore, this was the perfect opportunity to get their family photos updated. The shoot was great fun, as they wanted very natural photos, nothing formal. We captured a great selection of images of them all together, and also of just the kids. Below are a few of the images from the shoot.

If you would like to update your family portraits and book a family photo shoot session, you can call the studio on 01827 215 707 or scroll down to the enquiry form.


One from the big day.

Corporate Headshots with a Difference

Corporate Headshots for Smart Accountants

Our accountant recently asked us to provide some Professional Corporate Headshots of his team for their website. Not a problem at all, we loaded up the car with all of our equipment and headed over to the offices of Smart Accountants Ltd

As these are accountants, you would assume that they would all be dressed in pinstripe suits and look very official? Wrong! The team want their clients to see they are real human beings. Once we had done the formal shot, they then changed to show what they do in their spare time. Rick, the Managing Partner, loves Racket Ball so changed in to his kit. Monty the chocolate labrador is always in the office, therefore it was only right that he has his place on the website too.

This is a great concept for any website. Especially if your business is based on a personal approach with your clients. As a customer, seeing these images on a ‘meet the team’ page makes you feel comfortable and that you already know who you are contacting.

For more information on our Headshot services, contact us today on 01827 215 707. 


Newborn Baby Photos with Big Brother

Newborn Baby Photos with her Proud Big Brother

On 29th March we had the pleasure of capturing newborn baby photos, with her very proud big brother.

The little princess came to us at 10 days old, which is the perfect time for a newborn photo shoot. In the first 10 days, babies are more likely to stay in the curled up position and are more sleepy, to give the perfect newborn poses we all love. For the little one’s comfort, we heated up the studio to 27 degrees. Therefore, we started with the shots of baby and her big brother. It was lovely to see how gentle and protective he already is over his little sister. Once we got the shots, big brother and dad stepped out of the studio to cool off.

Whilst they were enjoying the cool breeze, Phil got to work capturing the newborn images. She was a superb little poser and very content, just stopping for a couple of top up feeds and a cuddle. Below are few images from this lovely shoot.

Wedding Anniversary Photo Shoot

Wedding Anniversary Photo Shoot Celebration

To celebrate their Wedding Anniversary, Mr and Mrs Quinn, came to the Philip Charles studio with their son and daughter for a family photo shoot session.

For the first part of the session they all dressed up in their finest for some beautiful portraiture for the Wedding Anniversary shots. They then changed into something a little more comfortable for some casual, fun shots. The shoot was really good fun, and the family had lots of ideas too. With the change of outfits and different poses, we created an excellent variety of images. The family have chosen to have the images presented in an album, which will look fantastic. Such a great way to remember their Anniversary.

Below are just a few images from their shoot. If you would like to book a family photo shoot session, please call the studio on 01827 215 707 or scroll down to the enquiry form.

Photography Coverage for Awards Ceremony

Tamworth Business Networking Awards Ceremony

On Saturday 11 March 2017, we had the pleasure of providing photography coverage for the Tamworth Business Networking Awards Ceremony. 

The evening bash took place at Drayton Manor in Tamworth. The night started off with arrival shots of the attendees, all looking fantastic in their formal attire. Throughout the evening, Phil was there capturing every moment of the fun and anticipation. Including the announcements, the award presentations, and laughter at the tables. Once all of the awards had been presented, the lucky winners stepped back in front of the camera with their awards in hand. The evening concluding in style with a casino and live tribute band.

We would like to thank Tamworth Business Networking Awards for appointing Philip Charles Photography. Below are just a few shots from the evening.
