About Moment in Time Photography

I came to Plymouth to study Photography at Plymouth College of Art and Design, way back in the late 70’s, and never left!  It is a beautiful place to live so close to the sea and moors.

I started Moment in Time Photography when my daughters started school and have run the business from the studio for over 25 years. In the early years I specialised in weddings, photographing hundreds of weddings  and even the second weddings for two previous brides and two grooms!

The girls now have their own families and I now spend most of my time photographing babies , children and families in the studio.

The studio is set in a pretty terrace of shops on the border of Peverell and Mannamead areas of Plymouth, a mile or two from the city centre and the A38 with free on street parking outside. Thorn Park and Mutley Park are just a stones throw from my back gate and can be included in a shoot.

The studio has a large selection of backgrounds and props and will hold up to 15 people. Larger groups can be photographed as several groups and joined together!

I have a reception/viewing area where you can see the photographs from your portrait session on the large tv screen, select your favourite images and design your wall art.

We cannot thank you enough! The photos you captured of our boys were just perfect, you captured their personalities so well! The actual shoot was superb and the way you worked with the boys was effortless with outstanding outcomes! It made it so hard to pick our photos because every single one was gorgeous! Will definitely be recommending you!
