Kids Photo Shoot

Kids Photo Shoot before School 

We recently welcomed this lovely little man came to the studio for a kids photo shoot before he takes his next big step in the world – starting school.

Mum wanted photos of her little prince ahead of the next chapter of his journey. At 4 years old, he was so confident in front of the camera and loved every minute he was in the studio. Coming up with different sayings with Phil, instead of “cheese”, and shouting them as loudly as he could. Our favourite has got be ‘cheeky carrots’. We used several different backdrops and poses, which created an excellent set of images to choose from. Below are just a few of our favourites.

We wish our ‘cheeky carrots little man’ every success, fun and happiness in his journey through school.

If you would like to book a photo shoot session, please call Phil and Vicky on 01827 215 707, or scroll down to the enquiry form.

Maternity Photo Shoot

Maternity Photo Shoot with Returning Bride & Groom 

We recently welcomed to the studio one of our 2015 Bride and Groom’s for a Maternity photo shoot session, along with their gorgeous little girl. 

Bex & Geoff married 1 August 2015, which we had the absolute pleasure to capture. Two years on, they are expecting (baby is due in October), and wanted Phil to capture this precious time for the family. The whole family are very excited, especially big sister. During the shoot, we used different backdrops and setups to create a variety of images to choose from. The main focus was of the family together, but we also got a few shots of just mum and dad, and big sister on her own.

We would like to thank Bex and Geoff for coming to us to record this very special time, and can’t wait to meet the little one. Below are a few of the images from the shoot, and also one of our favourite’s from the wedding.

Baby Portraits

10 Week Old Baby Portraits

We recently welcomed the Redman family to the studio for baby portraits of their 10 week old gorgeous princess.

She was a little star throughout the shoot, with lots of smiles and happy with her different outfit changes. We got the studio nice and cosy so she was comfortable with her ‘au-natural’ shots. Using different textures of blankets and throws, we created an excellent variety of images. Mum and dad also had a few shots too, which were stunning. Below are a few images from the shoot.

Baby photo shoot sessions are only £20. If you would like to book your session, please call Vicky and Phil on 01827 215 707, or scroll down to the enquiry form.

Bump to Baby Photography

Bump to Baby Photography, including the Family Dog

We recently had the pleasure of shooting the Fisher family’s very exciting time with our Bump to Baby Photography.

On 27th May, Mum-to-be came to the studio for a maternity photo shoot. She brought along her partner, 8 month old daughter and 5 month old Dogue de Bordeaux, Fury. This offered a great variety of images, as we captured photographs of the whole family’s excitement awaiting the arrival of their new edition. We produced some excellent shots of big sister on her own, and also with Fury. Whilst Fury wasn’t in front of the camera, he was in the office with Vicky, pulling her round on the office chair.  For the record, he is nothing like his name, absolutely soft as anything.

After the safe arrival of their little prince, the family returned to the studio on 5th July for their Newborn photo shoot. This shoot was focused mainly on the little man. However, we did capture some beautiful portraits with his big sister and mum. Below are a few of our favourite images from the two shoots.

We love seeing families grow. It really does mean so much to us when families return to the studio to update their family portraits. 

Maternity photo shoot sessions are only £20. As we would love you to return with your new addition, we offer a Newborn Photo Shoot voucher with every maternity shoot.  To book please contact the studio on 01827 215 707 or scroll down to the enquiry form.

Photography Studio in Atherstone

New Photography Studio Now Open in Atherstone

We are proud to announce that the new Philip Charles Photography studio is now open in Atherstone, Warwickshire.

As a little bit of background, Philip Charles Photography was founded nearly 10 years ago by Phil, and was joined by wife Vicky in 2015. Based in Tamworth, tucked away on a farm, our studio was a little tricky to be found. The studio was small, but great for what we did, taking photographs. Over time, the studio became busier, which was awesome, but we soon outgrew the space and needed to find larger premises. 

So here we are, in our new studio in the lovely market town of Atherstone, just outside Tamworth. The shop was originally a hairdressers, so everything had to be stripped out and redesigned. Walls have been built, flooring has been laid, and goodness knows how many gallons of paint we have gone through! It took 2 months of late nights, blood, sweat and tears, but it was worth every minute.

We now have:

Reception 

Dressing Room

Client Area and Image Viewing Room

The Studio

 

We do all types of photography including large family groups, newborn, babies, professional headshots, pets, products etc… Whatever you need photographing, we can do it.

For all enquiries you can call Phil and Vicky on 01827 215 707, drop into the studio at 128 Long Street, Atherstone or fill in the enquiry form. We look forward to hearing from you.

Atherstone Photography Studio Opening Event

Photography Studio Official Opening in Atherstone

On Saturday 10th June 2017, we officially opened our new photography studio in Atherstone, Warwickshire.

To help celebrate our opening, we were joined by our family, friends, clients and local residents. We also had a special guest appearance by Gary Poulton from BBC’s The Apprentice. Gary made it to week 11 of the popular series in 2015. We kick started the day with the official cutting of the ribbon by Gary, with ourselves, Phil and Vicky. During the day we were giving away balloons, cake, and goody bags.

In honour of local dog rehoming charity, Dun-Roamin, we hosted a raffle. 1st prize was a coffee machine set, 2nd prize was a hamper of goodies donated by Dun-Roamin, and 3rd prize a box of chocolates. The raffle raised £59. The lucky winners were drawn at the end of the day, and all very happy to collect their prizes. Below are a few photos from the day.

We have relocated to this lovely market town from Tamworth. Our new premises is larger, with separate reception, image viewing room, dressing room and large studio space. If you are looking to update your family portraits, photo shoot sessions are only £20. For more information, or to book, either call the studio on 01827 215 707 or scroll down to the enquiry form.

Baby’s First Birthday Shoot

Photoshoot Session for Baby’s First Birthday

We recently welcomed the Rowe family to the studio for a family and baby photo shoot session to celebrate their little one’s first birthday.

The session was the day before her birthday and she was certainly full of big smiles. Mum and Dad had a few shots for their family portrait, but the main focus was on the birthday girl. They brought along a couple of outfit changes and her favourite teddy to incorporate in the shoot. Our tin bath was a firm favourite, and we got some great shots of her cheeky look.

A photo shoot session is an excellent idea for a special birthday and occasion. Mum and dad will always have these precious photographs of their little girl’s first birthday to cherish.

Large Family Photographs Specialist

Midlands Studio Specialist in Large Family Photographs

There are many excellent photography studios around the Midlands, but not all can accommodate more than 6 in one session. Located in the heart of the Midlands, the Philip Charles Photography studio specialises in large family photographs, comfortably shooting a group of 15.

At the start of the session, you will be welcomed to the studio and given sole use of our green room for leaving your belongings safely. Once the whole family has arrived, Phil will take you through to the studio, which is where the fun begins. With Phil’s wealth of experience and expertise he will set you up in different compositions to give you a good variety of images to choose from. Once the big family portraits have been shot, Phil will break the group down into smaller groups and combinations. For example, grandparents with all the grandchildren, parents and children, children only, couples etc…

At the end of the photo shoot session you will be invited to return to the studio a few days later for your presentation of images with Vicky. All of the photos are printed, rather than shown on a screen, which allows you to easily compare and choose your favourites. Below are a few of our large family portraits.

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

Fun Studio Family Photos

Gift of Fun Studio Family Photos

We recently welcomed this lovely 2.4 family to the Philip Charles studio. They received a gift voucher from a friend as they wanted fun, natural studio family photos.

As we all know, children grow up so quickly. Photographs allow you to freeze and record that moment in time. The studio session was really fun with lots of laughter, which allowed us to capture their natural smiles. There was mum and dad, with their daughter (8) and son (4). We used different backdrops and set ups, capturing the foursome together, and some of just the kids. Below are a few of our favourite shots from the session.
