Portrait Photography

Need a creative portrait?

We are a full service photography studio.

Founded by its two photographers Kirsty & Jason Browning


We take great pride in our image output and stylised studio signature.

Our images are carefully lead through our processing stages until we are both happy with the final result. We strive daily to create dynamic images that will exceed expectations.

Portrait Photography

We balance art and technique with a calm environment to achieve a beautiful portrait.

River Dart Gallery is proud to offer portrait photography. Creating great portraiture is an art. We describe our style as candid, environmental, creative, calm, and competent.

Portraits help us identify ourselves to others. They affect the way in which we are perceived. They can be honest or can be overly flattering.

We shoot several types of portraits from a simple studio shot to environmental portraiture.

You get two fully qualified photographers who are passionate about photography and people. We have a great ability to make you feel relaxed and comfortable during our shoots.

Our portrait photography service is composed of artist headshots, headshots for business, family, children, wedding and pet portraiture.

We are experienced, full time and fully qualified photographers who work at an extremely high standard.

Capturing your families love with a relaxed friendly approach.

Portrait Sessions

A portrait is one of the greatest gifts you can give to your family.

A gift that will be treasured by generations after you, and a gift that will be part of your family’s history. We will deliver a stunning set of family photographs that will be treasured forever.

Sessions will last between 1 – 2 hours but they are never rushed. Plenty of time will be allowed for snacks, bathroom breaks, and clothing changes, if desired. Be relaxed. Expect the unexpected.

Our portrait service includes your photoshoot, editing of the files and your viewing appointment. We know about the stress that can come with a family photoshoot. We will help melt away all that stress.

Working in unison Kirsty & Jason give input and critiques to one another during the shooting process.  Working together to create an amazing image for you.
We are now taking bookings in the Devon area. If you would like to book a session, please contact us.

First is your photoshoot.

This can be at the studio, environmental, or creative custom backgrounds.

We usually arrive a little early so we can get to know you and scout out the area.  We’ll get everyone relaxed and quickly having fun talking about the shoot. We can look at the lighting in the space and give you a clear plan on what we are thinking.


Finding the perfect spot is key

Portraits are best done in a comfortable environment so our sessions are always on location.

Meaning sessions take place at a your home or a park, garden, beach, or a location of particular importance to you.

Feel free to contact us for suggestions of locations in your area.

Corporate Sessions

Business Headshots – Corporate & Actor Headshots


Corporate Sessions usually last around 30 minutes and include two high resolution retouched images in both Colour & Black and White.

Bumps to Babies

For the Little Ones

For bumps, babies and young kids our shooting style is candid so we are following your child around trying to capture the essence of their spirit!

The single most important thing is to have your child wearing clothes in which he or she is comfortable and happy. Jeans and a solid t-shirt, a simple sundress, even rumpled pyjamas – they’re all good! Solid, matching colours are very popular choices because of their classic, simple look.

On the other hand, bright colours, bold patterns, and funky accessories can make for very creative and personality-filled portraits. When the weather turns cold, please plan for your child to wear suitable outerwear.

Happy, bundled up kids make for beautiful memories; uncomfortable, shivering ones do not. As for babies, naked or diaper-only is generally best for indoor shoots.

What happens

after the shoot

Within 48 hours after your session, your proofs will be available for viewing. We will contact you with a link for viewing these images in a private, online gallery. You are welcome to share the gallery with family and friends.

You can pick out your favourites and make comments to us about your choices.

If you would like you can come back to the studio for a viewing session of your photos.

The viewing session is to help you pick out your favourites and decide on how you want to display them.


Image Editing

Next step is editing. We will both go over your shoot. We pick our favourites, colour correct and prepare your files for viewing on the web.



Have a coffee and pick out your favourite images. Don’t worry we will be there to walk you through the picking process.

We can then print and frame in any style you would like in our in-house framing workshop.

You do not have to choose which print package you would like at the time of booking.

You can pick all the prints and frames after the shoot.
