Recent Testimonials

Manchester Family Photographer

I have been a photographer for over 10 years covering all ages and styles.  Having fantastic across the board knowledge in most types of portrait photography, I have expanded that knowledge, mostly by client request, to cover almost every conceivable style from family portraits, newborn babies and weddings.

I have a very patient style which comes in handy when working with children and animals, especially when it’s children with animals.

Atherton photography studio is based in north Manchester and is easily accessible from Bolton, Leigh, Wigan and Warrington by car or rail.
