Dance Shoot

My daughter Elena had a fabulous time at her dance photo shoot with Karen. The studios are amazing, really big and spacious and Karen is a very patient and professional photographer. The photos are fantastic and we couldn't be more impressed with the results! I would definitely recommend Karen, she is very talented.

Thank you Karen. Your studios are beautiful and Milly had a great time at her photoshoot. You even managed to get Freddie to join in (not easy when he hates having his photo taken!) Love the photos xx



As part of my 60th birthday celebrations, I decided to treat myself to a make over and photo shoot  at Karen Gavin Portraits in Farsley. I arrived with a selection of clothes - casual, smart and dressy.

I was introduced to the make up artist who was a lovely young lady. She talked to me about the make-up I usually wear (which is very little) and as she began she explained to me what she was using, why she was using it and the effect it would create. I was a little wary of looking over done but she judged it brilliantly and I felt I looked great.

I had lots of photographs taken, with my make-up being checked and touched up where required. I do not normally like having my photograph taken but I was made to feel at ease and smile and by the end of my session I was playing up to the camera with hats, sunglasses and fur coats. It was great fun and a fantastic experience. Karen is very professional and knows just how to get the best from her subjects with good suggestions for poses and props.

When I saw the results a while later I was absolutely delighted, I actually looked quite attractive, better than I ever thought I could look. The photographs had been produced in a range of colour and black and white, headshots, full shots, smiling, contemplative, posing and fun. Overall it was a great experience and one I would thoroughly recommend.



I've had a few of photo shoots with Karen and they have all been brilliant. Karen makes you feel relaxed whilst she clicks away. Had pictures of the kids done which are fantastic! Would highly recommend!! 🙂

My son does not like to stand still, nor does he like having his picture taken. He very quickly warmed to Karen and had a lot of fun sitting on the different chairs and looking at the teddy bears. Not only did he have fun, the pictures were great and it was difficult to choose which ones we liked the best to take.

Amazing photos, I'm so pleased with them. Karen is a wonderful photographer who made me feel completely at ease as I was slightly nervous with it being my first solo shoot. I will most definitely recommend to anyone wanting professional, beautiful photos.
