Portraits & Portfolios

'Thank you Ashley for the amazing photos you took of the family and I on our recent break at Oakerthorpe Holiday Village,. You remained calm and collected even when you had about 19 people trying to tell you what to do! The family photos are great and the photos you took of the children playing have really captured their personalities. They also loved you accompanying us to the farm to continue snapping whilst they had a great time playing with the animals. Thanks again... keep up the good work!' - Karen Barnes

'Thanks for some wonderful family portraits.  We think they are superb, and we all thoroughly enjoyed the session'  - Adrian Noble

'We used Ashley Franklin Photography recently for a family photo session whilst holidaying in Derbyshire. We found Ashley to be very charming and polite. We were very impressed that he went to the location prior to the photshoot to get an understanding of the area and we felt he captured exactly what we were looking for. We would definitely recommend him' - Karon Edmonds

'Ashley photographed my family at a celebratory lunch at Callow Hall in Ashbourne. From the first phone call we had, Ashley was very attentive and communicative. He was punctual on the day of the event, and arrived early to set up the room for our arrival. He took a range of photos both indoor and outdoor, and was excellent at telling us how and where to pose - all the while ensuring that we would end up with a good variety of shots to choose from. Needless to say, the photos came out beautifully and Ashley spent a lot of time editing them to perfection. Ashley offers a very personal service, and he went above and beyond to ensure we all had the pictures we wanted. He also suggested having the pictures mounted and framed at his local framers, which we all did, and we are all delighted with the results. We would highly recommend him.' - Sophie Al-Mahdawie


Would you like a portrait session - at home or outside?

A portrait of you or your family makes for a moment you can frame - be it a photo in a traditional glass frame or on canvas, MDF or acrylic.  

It makes an ideal gift, too.  And if you'd like some photos of your children, I can put their image on a mug, mousemat, fridge magnet or key ring!

The portrait service I prefer is one where I visit your home.  This a service most of my customers prefer, too, as they feel more comfortable in their own environment.  Photos can be taken in the house or garden or, if you like, we can take a trip to the local park or a favourite spot of yours.  The relaxed, informal and fun aspect of this shoot makes for lovely natural images.


Price: £95 attendance fee.  This involves a shoot of up to two hours.  I will then process all the photos and make them available for you to view on my website gallery.  You can then order whichever prints you want online - it's as simple and easy as that.  All photos are printed by one of Britain's leading photo labs, One Vision Imaging.
