Very professional and made us feel at ease. Phil was very patient with our dog and it was very difficult to choose which photos we wanted as they were all brilliant. Vicky was very patient with us and was really helpful going back over all the photos quite a few times while we made our minds up. Beautiful photos that really showed our old dog at his best. Thank you!

What an absolutely lovely experience. The photoshoot was relaxed and fun and our 10 year old son said he really enjoyed it (so that's a feat in its self). The pictures are 2nd to none and capture us as a family.
I will definitely recommend to family and friends.
Thanks again for a wonderful experience.

We booked a photo session with our newborn and our two year old. We booked last minute and we were able to go the very next day! Phil was extremely professional yet friendly and approachable throughout the whole session. We were there for around two hours and felt at home and at ease - both Phil and Vicky were amazing with our children and we could not recommend them enough. We purchased a canvas and a frame with three photographs and both are superb! Thank you again, we will definitely be back in the future

Customer Testimonials

Had two separate photo shoots here one with my partner, then another just for my children. Was put at ease and the children had great fun. Would definitely recommend to others.


Had a family photo shoot on Tuesday & would recommend highly ! Lovely welcome from Vicky, Phil was brilliant with our little 3 year old girl who isn’t normally shy but was for the shoot & managed to make her laugh & get some smiles ! Will deffiantly be using these again thankyou both


Just had my viewing of a photoshoot of my 6yr old and 4yr old. Phil was amazing with the kids throughout the photoshoot and the photos are absolutely beautiful! No tears or tantrums just lots of fun! Also no pressure or sales pitch when selecting photos, relaxing environment. Would highly recommend.


We have just had a family photoshoot and can honestly say it has been a wonderful experience. The photoshoot itself was professional but relaxed and we all felt totally at ease. We have just viewed our photos and they are absolutely wonderful. We can't recommend Philip Charles Photography enough. Thank you both for such a great experience. We'll definitely be back!


Our recent family shoot was fantastic. We were made to feel so at ease and relaxed throughout. Being a dad himself, Phil was so patient with our mischievous boys and really took his time to capture some beautiful pictures. We returned the following week to view our photos with Vicky..... they were all stunning!!! This made it so difficult to choose our favourite ones! Vicky was great as she made us aware of all our options and guided us through our choices without being pushy at all! She was so understanding of our budget too! We would highly recommend Philip Charles photography to our family and friends as the service was fabulous. Can't wait for our pictures to arrive now!!

From Our Website

We are a truly family run business, Phil the and Vicky will take you through the whole process and by the end hope you'll consider us more as friends than photographers. Our mums and children also help out when things get busy, you'll see the kids popping up in a lot of promotional videos and photographs. It's hard to think that I started out on this crazy journey over 22 years ago! I first got my hands on a camera as a teenager and fell in love with taking photographs. Ok so it took about 15 years, another career and a redundancy to put me as a full time photographer but here I am a studio owner for 10 years and I still love taking photographs!


There is a lot that can be said for spending time with your family. However, despite knowing that family time is good for us, we still seem to find it a struggle to make the time for those closest to us. Many of us will share things on social media, tag each other on our posts and like our pictures, but that is the most that we will do together as a family. We think that this is a real shame, which is why we have created our family photography sessions. A chance to bring the kids, mum & dad and grandparents together, if even for a few hours to take some pictures.


Organising a family photo shoot is great fun. It is a fantastic way to bring the whole family together and not only this, it is also means that you can capture some special memories that you can treasure for a lifetime. The thing about family photoshoots that we are asked is what should we wear? To help you to plan those picture perfect outfits, we have put together what you should wear for your family photoshoot. Whilst you are not going to be expected to dance around and stand on your head, there is a good chance that your photographer will ask you to stand, lie down, crouch or sit on the floor.


Your wedding day is the most important day of your life, which means that you are going to want to make sure that every single detail of the entire day is perfect. One of the most important things to do is to make sure that you secure the best wedding venue for your taste. With so many amazing venues out there to choose from, sometimes you can feel a little overwhelmed. However, we are here to help. Take a look at 5 of the best wedding venues for you to book for your special day. This four star country house is not only set amongst the beautiful British countryside, but it also is ideally located within easy reach from Birmingham and everything that the city has to offer.


A newborn baby is a wonderful gift and here at Philip Charles Photography, we are honoured to be able to capture those precious moments. Newborn and baby photos are something very special. We believe they should be intensely personal to you and your baby, not just a series of standard poses. Vicky carries out our newborn and baby photoshoots and has an intuitive approach which captures your baby in a very special way. Book a newborn photoshoot at any time from the birth, ideally before 14 days old, and freeze those cherished moments in time forever.


Dogs are so much more than just a pet, they're a furry member of the family. Here at Philip Charles Photography, we love dogs, and we love being allowed to take photos of your four-legged friend. Whether your pet is big or small, we'd love to see them in our studio for a professional dog photoshoot. We specialise in pet photography and we have finely-honed skills in catching your dog at their adorable best. Our personalised dog photography is great for puppies and older dogs alike - and it's a great excuse for us to enjoy some canine company for the day!


Your family are the most important people in your life and having a family portrait offers a very special snapshot that's timeless. Whether your children are still young or grown-up, family photographs are a way of capturing the love you feel for each other. Our experience as children's photographers allows us to create meaningful and beloved pictures that will look perfect on your shelf, wall or mantelpiece. Here at Philip Charles Photography, we've got four children of our own so we understand just how precious these moments are.


We believe that to capture the special moments on your wedding day, you need a photographer with a passion for your big day. Here at Philip Charles, we love wedding photography and we think that is reflected in some of the beautiful images we have created over the years. There's no second chance to get the photos right which is why it's so important to choose a photographer that you feel a connection with. We have a unique style and believe that a relaxed approach produces the very best photos.
