Our Ethos

I believe that everyone should look and feel amazing in at least one photograph. Every family should have a beautiful portrait that is representative of the joy they felt that day. I do not think that portraits should take a long time and should be a fun time, so much fun in fact you will want to do it again.  

Let me worry about how to make you look good and getting everyone to look at me and smile! You just need to have fun.

Chanon De Valois

Photographer

I always hated having my photo taken and I wanted to change this after several loved ones passed away I always found that it was the images of them that gave me comfort, sometimes even decades later.

However it was a particular death of someone dear to me that I found had managed to slip through my life without a single photograph, and this is something I have forever regretted. Do not regret the portrait you never had taken, rejoice in the one you did!
