What you get...

Our first communion portraits are different from those taken at the church. Our sessions are designed for everyone to be included, even the dog! Our portrait sessions include:

  • One to two hour studio portrait session with Graham
  • Pre-session phone chat to get your ready for the shoot
  • Family and pets are also welcome to be in your photos too!
  • We’ve a ton of props, but you’re welcome to bring your own too!
  • Come back a week later to see your edited pictures on our big screen
  • There’s no pressure and no hard sell – just order what you love when you come back to see your pictures. Typically we find most clients prefer to invest in fully finished wall art (like our frames and collections) - usually investing anywhere between £500 and £2000 on their experience.

We take £50 to secure your booking. It will be applied as studio credit towards your order when you come back to view your pictures. Please refer to our Products & Pricing page for full details on our pricing and to download our brochure.

We were a bit nervous...
We were with Graham Crichton with our 2 dogs Annie and Tibbers during the summer. We were a bit nervous about Tibbers as he can be quite reactive with new people. Graham and Hannah were absolutely fabulous with Tibbers and he enjoyed every moment of it, as you can see by his smiles! The photos are absolutely stunning and we opted for the photobook which turned out beautifully and is now displayed in our livingroom proudly! I cannot recommend Graham Crichton enough! Graham and Hannah are a lovely pair and we had a great time and many laughs with them both, professional and down to earth, genuine people!
Graham and Hannah went above and beyond
Graham recently took my two sisters and I's graduation photos and we couldn't recommend him enough. Both Graham and Hannah went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and welcomed in the studio and even accommodated additional opening hours to suit us. The quality of the photos are perfection and you could not have got better! We highly, highly recommend to anyone! Thanks Graham!
The whole process was effortless
I went to Graham for passport photos. I needed print copies for my Canadian passport and a digital copy for my Irish one. Graham and Hannah made the whole process absolutely effortless and the photos were perfect. Not only are they true professionals, you couldn’t find lovelier people to photograph you or your pet! And the cost of the photos was very reasonable.
It was magic
We had a photoshoot for our 1 year old's birthday and brought our 3 year old beagle along too. How Graham got a toddler and a dog to pose at the same time, I'll never know...magic!! The shoot was so much fun and very relaxed and the photos were absolutely amazing. We got a few of them framed and they are very good quality. I highly recommend Graham and will definitely be back!
