About Me

Chanon deValoisI am a photographer and I have been as long as I can remember, as a third generation photographer it is in my blood.

I believe that the family portrait is one of the most important aspects of our childhood, it gives every child that sense of belonging and displaying them on the walls of your home has even been proven to improve a child’s self esteem.

My special talent is I can stop time, some have even said that I have managed to reverse it! I believe that we should all exist in photographs and you deserve to be photographed by a professional photographer. I do not think you should wait until you are thinner, older, happier or richer I believe you are beautiful and perfect right now! Don’t regret not having that photo taken rejoice in the one you had taken.

Celebrate a milestone, an achievement, a birthday, an anniversary or a relationship or just celebrate life. Let me worry about how to make you look good and getting everyone to smile and you can just relax and enjoy the time with the people you love.

I invite you to a personal photo session with me it will change the way you see yourself and how your children see themselves.



What they are saying…

Absolutely fantastic, we had such fun on our family session, my two boys loved it. The photo’s really captured all the fun and our personalities, and the box they were presented in is stunning. Very highly recommended. Thank you so much.

I had some headshots done with Chanon yesterday. Now explaining before hand that I normally look like a plate of poached eggs in photos kind of gave her the idea about how much I love my photo being taken (NOT!)
But as part of my package Chanon arranged for a lovely make up artist Rebecca to turn me into a lady and then Chanon set about making me feel very comfortable and at ease. We did lots of clothes, background and pose changes and laughed a lot and before I knew it 2 hours had passed! Thanks Chanon and I’m actually looking forward to seeing the pics!

What can I say? Chanon is amazing! She did some headshots of me recently, and I could not be more delighted. I now use them for my business, and have had so many compliments. What’s more, the whole experience (potentially a bit nerve-wracking!) was relaxed, fun and dare I say…enjoyable!
I’m thrilled to bits with the result would recommend Chanon to anyone who wants some professional headshots doing, a family portrait, a wedding. Brilliant!

I booked in with Chanon for a corporate photo shoot but was very nervous and not at all comfortable with having my photo’s taken. Chanon made me feel very relaxed and was extremely professional. She arranged everything for me and all I had to do was turn up with the outfits I wanted to use. My hair and make up was all done for me and looked amazing on the photo’s.

Not only is Chanon passionate about her photography and how to make you look great, she is also very efficient in producing the images and helping you choose those that work best of you.

Thank you Chanon for a great experience and I look forward to booking back in soon to have some less formal photo’s taken.

I’m someone who hates posing for photos yet Chanon made me feel so at ease in front of the camera and I thoroughly enjoyed our photoshoot! She strives to capture your personality and inner beauty in her shots and I was over the moon when I saw my pictures!


As a fellow photographer I wanted a shoot with me and my young daughter and knew I could not do that myself!! Chanon was wonderful and she loves a certain photographer, I myself and a few of my fellow photographers all follow so I knew her images would reflect that. I am so hopeless at being photographed myself as I hate being that side of the camera and I did warn her it would be hard work!! But she was up for the challenge! She was so lovely on shoot day with my daughter and myself it was great. Following on I was alittle concerned going to the viewing as my husband and I knew we would love her images of our daughter, hubbie was also sure he would like ones of me but I was less sure……… but I am so happy to say I really do love the ones of me with her as well!! One of which will be going on our wall in the house! Thank you for your calm, reassuring style Chanon and for producing us images we will treasure forever .Highly recommend.
