First Holy Communion is a very special milestone in a child’s life

“These are the MOMENTS to be remembered FOREVER"

For many, It can often be one of the earliest memories of childhood. It's a day of celebration and one that all the family gets together. I offer both on location shoots or studio photoshoot. The session can be on the big day or a different weekend. The child may not remember what I said to them during the session but they will always remember how I made them feel. Confident, important and loved by their family who surround them on their communion day.

The Communion Portrait


The Why

Are you looking for a portrait of your child on their communion day? As a parent I know how hard its is to get a photo of your child with the family yourself. Get peace of mind and book me to look after what I do best. Creating photos you will love.


We can chat over the phone or call to the studio. We discuss how you like your child to be photographed with your family and if there are other members joining you and any special request. Let's chat.


I offer outdoor and studio photoshoot in Enfield. In advance of the day, We will discuss all the information I need. The child's name, if there are other siblings and who else is taking part so I will know who everyone is on arrival.

The Shoot

Now the real fun begins and the magic begins. I work quick as communions are a busy day. Shoot can be 15 mins longer if we have extended family. They will feel so important and loved by their family.

The Viewing

This the day you get to come back to the studio together and relax and watch a movie where you are the stars of the show. The portraits will be shown to you in colour and black & white. We show you some ideas of what you can order at this session.


This is the day you come back to collect your stunning order and see the incredible quality of the photos. I love seeing my clients reaction to the finished product. There is nothing like owning a piece of art you love for your family.
