Meet the photographers
I was lucky enough to know from a very young age that photography was a great passion of mine. I plunged myself into a career in photography and have fulfilled my dream of owning my own studio; opening Brightside Photography Studios Chester in 2016.
From the moment you meet me, my passion will shine through. I will establish a bond with you and your family, enabling me to capture wonderful smiles and natural giggles, making the end result a selection of beautiful images that you will treasure for generations.
Besides work, my family is my world. I am a very proud mummy of two boys, Myles and Jude. Since becoming a mum I truly understand the phrase "they're not little for long", which makes my passion for capturing families and children even stronger.
I originally studied and worked in the entertainment business where I performed in London’s West End. Now, I am on the other side of the lens which, for me, is a lot more rewarding.
I am a working mum of two young children; seeing how quickly they are both growing up makes me appreciate the wonders of capturing a timeless image.
I like to bring fun and vitality to your experience in the studio. I want everyone involved to feel relaxed, enabling you to enjoy your session so I can get the best images possible.
It is important for every family to capture precious moments and have something special to cherish forever; I couldn't be more proud to be a part of helping you achieve this.
“Its one thing to take a picture of what someone looks like, its another to make a portrait of who they are.”
The Sage Family
“What a great experience from start to finish! The session itself was such fun. Rachel & Laura worked so well with all five of our children and created the most perfect, natural family pictures; which is just what we wanted. Seeing the pictures brought a tear to my eye, the viewing was overwhelming but together with Rachel's help we deigned a beautiful montage frame that looks simply stunning in our front room. Children grow up too quickly. I'm so pleased we have professional images to document this time.”
