Fairytale doesn’t have to be about fairies only! We offer magnificent settings such as a magic castle or a ball room. Whatever your favourite fairy tale is, please contact us to discuss your requirements. We have the whole assortments of princess dresses of various sizes and beautiful custom made prince outfits.

With the collections of costumes and period dresses or your own outfits, you will get an expert advise on preparations for this enchanting photo experience, to make sure your portraits work out in the best way.

Photo Session with birds

We love to offer something different! Why not have a lovely experience handling birds of prey of Bird Lady of Fowey.

Photo sessions with birds can be don in studio or on location. They are recommended for the adults and children of not younger than age of 5. Due to the nature of the birds, only smaller owls will be suitable for the young kids. If the session is scheduled on the location, the whole family will get chance to see and interact with larger birds too.

We have a few costumes in our closet, which we offer to our clients. Please feel free to get in touch to discuss what you are after. Of cause you are welcome to  have your own attire. We can help to accessorise your photo shoot with lots of props.

"...I confess that I find most photos of children to be a bit too?"precious " or simply uninteresting . That said , the four that you shot of a young girl in a window seat with her violin are stunning ! They have the composition and light of Vermeer paintings.?Many thanks for the delight your pictures have given me!"
