Award Winning Portraits
What our Schools & Parents Say
"We have used Portrait Days as our school photographer for many years now and have always found the team to be very personable, accommodating to our many requests and professional. They have a lovely manner with the children and seem
to be able to get them to relax in order that they can take some brilliant photographs.
They work with the school to ensure that the disruption is minimised whilst ensuring that the best photos are captured. During their time working with us, they have offered advice regarding the various poses, groupings and presentations of the photos to ensure that the parents receive the best mementos of their child’s school years.
They are extremely patient, both with the children and the staff and I would have no hesitation in recommending them."
