Vision, Mission and Purpose
With a unique colour palette
We avoid the white room studio set up, giving you the opportunity to create something truly unique. We use a specially developed colour palette which is inspired by vintage analogue films, white rooms are for asylums not for you!
"Our purpose is to produce unique high quality pregnancy photography for every woman, including you, to enjoy and celebrate."
Our purpose is delivered to you on time, at convenience to you and with a dedicated service. We are not your high street cookie cutter chain which brings many advantages! We develop a close working relationship with you, work towards your wants and desires, we do not allow time pressure of a waiting room to influence your art and we are not confined to 4 bland walls.
There are many photographers who offer family and pregnancy portrait sessions alongside all the other types of photography they work within, such as weddings and even pets! Candyfields are different in that Pregnancy and Children's portraits is an area that we specialise in almost exclusively; this means that we give you a completely dedicated one-on-one service, with the highest quality artwork for you to cherish now and in years to come.
"We have a Vision to create works of art that celebrate and empower your life, body and soul."
Pregnancy photography is our true vision in which we exclusively specialise and dedicate ourselves to. It is hard to comprehend the monumental shift in attitudes towards mother-hood over recent years, one example being the change in law regarding breast feeding in public. It is true that pregnancy photography is not to everyone’s taste and there are questions about its effect, concerns such as over sexualisation and pressure to look good during this precious time.
We aim to educate and spread our message that pregnancy photography is not something that MUST be done during pregnancy; it is something that COULD be done should you choose.
Mainstream celebrities have pushed the boundaries and blurred the lines with their own portraits on the covers of magazines however we believe they are a symbol of empowerment, celebration and beauty in its most perfect form.
We also educate photographers on a number of these issues and how to photograph the pregnant form sympathetically and away from the cliché. The “ME TOO” crowd entirely miss the point and aim to capitalise on a growing trend without appreciating the finer points. We will changing that.
We will create memories and emotions that you can hold, touch and admire. We truly believe in the ability of a photograph to rock the very ground you stand on and can say with certainty that there is a photograph somewhere in a box or old family album that will make you laugh, smile and at times move you to tears. A snap shot in time, literally fractions of a second captured and printed on paper and can hold such emotive power. Who can resist that sort of magic?
"Our mision is to produce innovative works of arts that are personable, emotive and truly bespoke for you"
Could you in a few years’ time hold your CD of images and sit around as a family looking and laughing at the fashions or hair styles? Which for you is the more precious? An image amongst many millions of others on Facebook or a truly bespoke piece that is printed to the highest of standards and hangs proudly on your wall for all to see and admire? You and your family are precious and deserve to be treated as such.
We have created many memories for parents, families, mums-to-be and teens. Here are some of their very kind comments.
