Photography and my appreciation for beautiful pictures has always been a part of me.

I live and work around the York area, which is where I spend most days working on current and future photography work. I enjoy planning portraits with couples, families, new parents and editing.  I love my work and my photography studio utilises my creativity.

I specialise in taking great photographs of people.  Portrait photography has always been a passion of mine, as I just find people really interesting.  Before creating this business, I spent twelve years in care work and developed a skill in putting people at ease, through being a good listener and putting their wants and wishes first.


When I’m not working, I’m still never far from my camera!  I have 3 daughters and 4 beautiful grandchildren.  They all spend time in the Studio too and have got pretty used to modelling for me, allowing me to try out new ideas or the use of new props.

Photo Shoot Party


“A thirteenth birthday party is a big event in any girl’s life.  I can honestly say I have found the perfect solution.  A party, which ticks all the boxes, glamour, excitement value for money, and not just a lasting memory but pictures to remind you of close friendships and a wonderful time-shared. Mandy really does make the party special, not only is she an extremely talented photographer; she has a real presence that brings out the best poses and shots, whilst keeping it light, friendly and fun.  Libby describes it as her best party ever and her friends agree it was right up there.”

Child’s Photo shoot


“Mandy made us feel very welcome on our recent visit to Studio Portraits. On arriving, I found the studio was much bigger than I expected. I did have some ideas of my own for the shoot and Mandy used her professional eye, to make them perfect. Mandy had some brilliant ideas, which I ended up liking more than my own! I expected it to be a few weeks before I received my photos. Instead I received them in only days. The end result is amazing and at only a fraction of the cost that I have paid in the past. Erin had so much fun that she wanted to return the very next day! Thanks”

Personal Shoot


“After 15 years of refusing to be photographed- since appearing in the Sunday Telegraph, Style magazine, in a very uncomplimentary image, Mandy gently coaxed me into doing a shoot with her.


The shoot was great fun and the results were simply breath-taking!”



Modelling Portfoilio


“In June 2010, Mandy photographed me modelling Elizabeth’s hats, for a feature story, to be run in the August edition, of Yorkshire Living magazine. The images were simply stunning.  The article not only covered 3 pages, but one of my images made the front cover! Since then, Mandy has helped me create a fantastic modelling portfolio.  I am now signed to a modelling agency and have recently worked on TV shows such as Emmerdale and Hollyoaks.

None of this would have been possible if it hadn’t been for Mandy’s encouragement. “



Bump photography


“I was quite nervous about having my photograph taken, but didn’t want to miss the opportunity to capture my big baby bump.  I’m so glad I found Mandy as she did a fantastic job and looked after me from start to finish.  Mandy has great skills in putting people at ease and making them feel comfortable, so there were no awkward or wooden poses.  She worked really hard throughout the shoot, so there were lots of great pictures to choose from.



Corporate Shoot


“I have worked with many photographers, worldwide.


I have found Mandy to be an amazing photographer, with absolute attention to detail, working with professional determination to get the shot needed for my designs. It is rare to find such an enthusiastic and fun lady, who goes out of her way to create Perfection!”


Elizabeth Parker Hats



“We booked Mandy to take our wedding pictures and we were so glad that we did! Mandy was so professional,  she made everyone feel so relaxed while she was taking the pictures. Infact Mandy just felt like one of our guests.  Me and Leigh were so pleased with the end result…Fabulous!”
