About Us & Our Studio

Multi Award Winning Portrait Studio

– Gloucestershire’s only Xperience 5star studio –

Welcome to Blink of an Eye Photography

I’m Natalie and I’m your photographer.

My gorgeous studio is based in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire.

We specialise in baby, children, and family photography.

And my passion …telling beautiful stories about families with my camera.

At Blink of an Eye Photography, we create innovative photographs that capture a feeling you can cherish every day.

What to expect at your Photoshoot with us

The experience will last around an hour. We want to know all about your family – get to know your personality, your vision, things you like and don’t like.

Before your session, we’ll talk about styling options, and ask you to bring in props – things that are special to your family and help tell your story.

Our job is to put everyone at ease and guide you through some poses. Sometimes we don’t even need to do that …when families are happy and relaxed doing their own thing, we can capture beautiful images when they are least expecting it. That’s when the magic happens.

 

After your Photoshoot experience, you will be invited back around 1-2 weeks later to view your images on the big screen in our viewing room and select your favourites. Our Design consultant will be there to guide you through the experience and advise on products and styling available to suit you. We will also give you a product guide and talk you through the options at the end of your Photoshoot.

If you have any questions please call the studio on 01684 275159 or 07787226122 to discuss what you are looking for.

“I love my pictures so much. I cherish the moments that I share with my daughter and these are reflected in the pictures which take pride of place in my front room for everyone to see. So many people comment on how lovely they are. Seeing her growing through the photos is such a fabulous feeling.”

Happy client, Mandi Beresford

“Wow!!! The shoot was great as Natalie let my boys be natural- which means running around and generally not listening to anything you want them to do! The shots she captured were amazing and it was hard to pick which ones to keep. The experience of choosing the photos and creating a canvas was fab. Lots of patience and sound advice given which reassured me that I had chosen a very professional company.”

Happy client, Jemma Cross

“Natalie made us all feel so welcome and relaxed and made the session so fun for my boys. They had a great time and so did we! There was no pushy selling as we’ve experienced at other places before! But we have walked away with the most amazing photos that we will treasure forever and I’m certain we will be back again in the future!

Happy client, Laurie Price

Wow, we viewed our photos and we’re amazed with how good and natural they were. My twin boys have just turned one so keeping them in one spot was hard but Natalie was great with them and got their attention when needed. We were so pleased with them and the service. Definitely do more shoots when they are older. It was lots of fun!
Happy Client- Tracey Walker

Frank Sinatra as I adore his music and he will have so many great stories to tell, Russell Brand because he’s just so funny and intelligent and Bet Gilroy from Coronation Street (even though she is fictional and not in it anymore) I’m a huge corrie fan and she was one of my favourite characters.
