“All with a fun & creative flare”

We have created a very informal, warm and relaxed studio, where you and your family will immediately feel at ease, and developed a family ‘friendly’ photo session that will almost distract you from the camera and flash lights.

With Gaynor’s reputation for excellence and her passion for people, you will be amazed at how many family photographs you will love from your photo shoot.

We are happy to offer a Combination Photo Shoot, where we can incorporate Studio and Outdoor shots in the woodland and fields on our premises (weather permitting).

OR combine a family photo session with a Fun ‘Bubbles’ session or Little Mister/Miss Vintage for your babies/children – this can be discussed at the start of your session or you can ask us for more details prior to booking.

There is nothing more to pay if you book one of our sale packages – prices shown below. You can order additional images once you’ve seen all your images if you wish and you can request to see the prices for these prior to booking.

We also offer our unique ‘Painting by Magic’ concept, where your children look like they are painting their favourite things: All photography is done in the studio and your image is then created in our digital darkroom – examples are shown below. These are NOT included in any of the packages shown below – you need to ask us for prices please.

We offer albums, photo books, canvases, blocks, folios – if you would like more info on any of these, please get in touch.

Following your photo session with Shy Violet Photography, a Gallery of images will be online for 3 weeks on our Customer Only GALLERY website where you will be able to view your images in the privacy of your own home, and as many times as you like.

If you would like us to quote on your own ideas for a bespoke package, please call or email Gaynor, or you can fill in our contact form on this page.

Sam Ogden Constantinou

Fantastic service! This lady knows how to get a smile and takes beautiful photographs. She makes you feel so comfortable and adapts to any situation... nothing is forced and we all enjoyed it. Thanks

Gemma Parry

Such an amazing lady. I have three very mischievious boys and a baby and i was dreading it to be honest but Gaynor made us feel at ease and didn’t mind that my boys were not in particularly good moods that day. Laughed it off in the end! And then baby Mias cake smash was just wonderful! Had fun laughed smashed cake whats not to love about that!
Would highly recommend Gaynor to everyone.
