I started Portland Studios 30 years ago as a creative family portrait & wedding film photography service offering great images and customer service at affordable prices. We originally operated as a mobile portrait photography service offering family portraits in hotels across the South East.

Over the years, we have become Kent’s leading High Street portrait studio and have followed innovation and adapted to meet new demands and trends. My studio was the first in Kent to go digital back in 2001, which allowed us to be more creative and experimental.

I was proud to become the first Baby Art UK franchise studio in 2016. This offered a highly innovative form of newborn photography to the services offered at Portland Studios. This has been such a popular service that it is now our speciality. I have since invested in Baby Art UK as a director, with an aim of growing studios across the UK.
