Doorstep portraits – Urmston & Chorlton


For the rest of this month (May 2020) I’ll be offering doorstep family portraits around my local areas of Urmston and Chorlton, Manchester.

This might be a strange, tragic and unsettling time, and we might feel like someone’s pressed the ‘pause’ button… But life doesn’t wait, babies are being born, families are growing and changing… let’s celebrate the good things in our lives too i.e. the dudes we’re cocooned away with!



If you’d like this crazy old time documented for you and your family, I can help! I can come and take some doorstep pics of your lovely family if you live in my local areas of Urmston or Chorlton, details as follows:

Doorstep shoots cost £45

Shoots take 15 minutes max

 Social distancing rules will of course be observed, I’ll keep my distance & bring my silly long lens! 

 At least 10 images to choose from

 Your favourite 5 digital images supplied electronically

 Additional images available to purchase for £10 each or £45 for the full set

 For every shoot booked, £5 will be donated to Stretford Foodbank and £5 will be donated to The Christie.

 Shoots are COMPLETELY FREE to frontline NHS workers, care home workers and school staff who are currently having to leave their home to work in public during this crisis – you’re all complete heroes and deserve a bit of kindness extended back to you

 Contact me on to book

 If you want to find out more about me & my work (and make sure I’ve not got 2 heads ?) feel free to read about me here and about my work here

Stay safe folks,

      Hi Louise, thanks so much! I’m happy to include any frontline staff who are having to leave their homes to have direct contact with the public on a regular basis – so if this is the case for any social workers then I’m happy to include them too! 🙂 I’ve just dropped you an email 🙂
