Family Photo Shoots in Atherstone

Professional Photography Studio for Family Photo Shoots in Atherstone

Philip Charles Photography relocated their professional photography studio last year, June 2018, offering family photo shoots in Atherstone.

Established for over 10 years trading in Tamworth, we made the decision to relocate a couple of miles down the A5 to the lovely market town of Atherstone. Over the last 12 months we have welcomed many, many families of all ages and generations.

One recent family we had the pleasure to shoot was the Moreton family. Mum, dad and their 10 year old son came to update their family portraits. The session was great fun, and produced images that we are all really pleased with. Below are just a few of the images from their shoot.

Product Photography

Product Photography by Philip Charles Photography

As a photography studio our busiest day of the week by far is a Saturday with family portraits. During the week, we keep the studio busy with product photography for our business clients.

Although we have many returning clients, we are always welcoming new clients, especially new business start ups. Professional product photography is by far the best investment any retailer can make. As a consumer, when you are shopping on line and compare two products side by side, you are instantly drawn to the professional image rather than a snap shot uploaded from a phone. Using professional images not only demonstrates exactly what your product is and does, it shows your professionalism in an instant. Giving you and your business that all important first impression. 

We do enjoy shooting the variety of products we are sent. In the last couple of weeks we have shot liquor bottles, fishing lures, and medals. Below are a few of the images we have supplied to our clients for their on-line sales. All products have been shot on a white background, to meet on-line specifications

Birthday Girl Photo Shoot

Photo Shoot Session for the Birthday Girl

To celebrate turning the big 8, the birthday girl chose to have photos in a professional photography studio.

The birthday girl arrived with her mum and younger brother, with a huge balloon and amazing unicorn cake. She certainly enjoyed the photo shoot experience, with different poses and backdrops. Reluctantly, she did agree to let her brother have some photos with her. The following day was the party with her friends at a local pizza restaurant.

With the different backdrops, we created an excellent choice of images of the children individually and also together. Below are just a few images from the shoot.

Wedding at The School House

Wedding of Natasha and Tom at The School House, Lichfield

On Friday 15th December 2017, we had the pleasure of covering the wedding of Natasha and Tom. The ceremony was held at the beautiful St Chad’s Church in Hopwas, followed by Reception at The School House in Lichfield.

On the morning of the wedding we threw open the curtains to find snow! As a photographer about to photograph the most important day of a couple’s life, seeing snow certainly gives you a funny feeling in your stomach. We joined the bride at home to capture the preparations, spirits were certainly high.

Following the “I do’s” at St Chads Church and a few photos, we moved on to The School House. The venue was decorated beautifully in Christmas theme, with lots of red and balloon Santa’s. It truly was a family event with lots of entertainment for the children by Weddings by Thelma.

Unfortunately, the Bride’s grandmother was unable to attend the wedding, as she was in hospital very poorly. The bride wanted to see her Grandmother on her special day, so the couple sacrificed some of their photography time to go to the hospital to visit her. Phil asked if they would like him to accompany them to get a portrait with her, which they jumped at. It was such a privilege to be part of this special moment with the family, and one we will always remember.

We returned to the reception to carry on the celebrations.

Below are a few images from the day. We would like to thank Natasha and Tom for choosing us to be part of your very special wedding day, and wish you and your lovely family all the very best for the future.

The Price Family Photo Shoot Session

Getting the Price Family Together for a Family Photo Shoot Session

One of the most advanced booking’s for a family photo shoot session we have had was for the Price family, booked 9 months in advance.

Lovely reason for this, their parents live in Florida and were due to visit in the summer. Therefore the perfect opportunity to get the whole family together, with plenty of notice for everyone. As specialists in large family portraits, we can confidently say that the most difficult job is for the actual organiser!  Trying to get 3 or more families in the same place at the same time is certainly a challenge.

We started the session with the main shot of the whole family. We then broke it down into different groups to offer a great variety of images. Below are a few of our favourites from this lovely shoot.

Wedding at Moxhull Hall

Masquerade Wedding at Moxhull Hall, Sutton Coldfield

On 15th June, we had the pleasure of capturing Anne-Marie and Roy’s special day at Moxhull Hall in Sutton Coldfield.

The theme of the wedding was Masquerade, which was absolutely fantastic. All of their family and friends embraced the theme, wearing masks in every colour and style possible. The bride looked stunning in blue and green, with peacock feathers. The ceremony took place in Calliope’s Garden under the gazebo. The weather was certainly on the happy couple’s side with glorious sunshine. Walking down the aisle, the Bridesmaid and Page Boys put on an excellent show, announcing the Bride’s arrival. As a personal touch to the service, the Groom walked up to meet his Bride, to walk down the aisle together, which was truly lovely.

After the ceremony, as an added personal touch, a gold picture frame and chalk boards were waiting for us at Reception. In place of a Guest Book, the Bride and Groom wanted their guests to write a message on the chalk board and have their photograph taken in the frame. These shots were arranged and taken by Vicky, whilst Phil was with the Bride and Groom doing their portraiture.

Below are some of the images from their day.

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.

Farm Wedding in Nuneaton

Jamie-Leigh and Pete’s Farm Wedding

On 1st July, we had the absolute pleasure of providing wedding photography for Jamie-Leigh and Pete’s farm wedding. The ceremony was conducted at Nettle Hill in Coventry followed by reception on their farm in Nuneaton.

This was a truly traditional farm wedding. The theme execution was absolutely spot on, with every attention to detail. The work that the couple put in to make the farm into a perfect wedding venue was immense. They built a haystack stage for the entertainment to perform on, built a swing and bridge over the pond for the photographs, dressed the marquee superbly, and even built a bar using an old box trailer.  This was a dream wedding to photograph with so many shot opportunities.

Here are just a few of the images.

Bridal party arriving by tractor – superb start to the day! 

The ceremony was intimate and lovely 

The Groom being coy with the kiss, but don’t worry, we caught it from the back of the room. The advantage of two ‘togs’ being there to capture different view points. 

Travelling in style, from tractor to the very rare Polaris 

Stunning portraiture on the purpose built bridge and swing   

The confetti shot

The cake, love it!

Traditional barn dance by the bridal party kicked off the evening party. 

This will be one of our most memorable weddings. Thank you so much to Jamie-Leigh and Pete for choosing us to record your special day. Note to the couple – as mentioned on the day, you should open this up as a wedding venue – it’s amazing!!

Pet Photo Shoot

Pet Photo Shoot with Barney and Stanley

A couple of days a week, we have our four legged friends, Barney and Stanley, spend some time with us whilst their owners are busy at work. Phil had the pooches in the studio recently for a pet photo shoot session to try out some new props.

Stanley, a King Charles Spaniel, loves the camera. He always get excited when he sees Phil’s camera, striking a pose. He loved the blanket in the suitcase, and got himself very comfortable to the point he was close to having a nap on the job! Barney, a Shih Tzu, is not so keen, often refusing to look at the camera. He was still a good sport though and sat lovely for his shoot. He is happiest lying under Vicky’s desk chilling out.

We love having pets in the studio, whether they are included in a family photo shoot session or for a shoot dedicated to just them. If you would like to book a pet photo shoot session, call Phil and Vicky on 01827 215 707. Or scroll down to the enquiry and we will get back to you.

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.
