About your Worcestershire portrait photographers


Kevin and Anthea Smith launched Cotswold Portrait Studios as a result of their wedding clients returning to have their babies and children photographed. The portraits were well received and soon attracting awards from the countries leading photographic institutions, The British Institute of professional Photography and The Master Photographers Association. In fact, Kevin was awarded “Portrait photographer of the Year” midlands region by both organisations and has recently been judged first place for ‘Under Fives Portrait Photography ‘and ‘Pet Portraiture’ by the BIPP Midland region.Black and white portrait of five year old boy

Kevin’s many awards for his images are testament to a deep love of photography and for photographing people in particular. During his eventful career Kevin has portrayed a long list of people with his camera and has developed the knack for capturing the personality of his subjects.

“We have five children of our own between us and naturally, we have gained a valuable insight into just what makes them tick. The best portraits are created during relaxed stress free sessions. The emphasis is on fun, allowing kids to be kids.”

Anthea has worked with Kevin for 12 years. Initially employed as an assistant, she soon adopted the role as ‘second shooter’ for their wedding photography assignments and then she married him.
“Anthea has a special talent for capturing those special moments and her photographs are always amongst the clients favorite pictures taken on the day. Anthea’s empathy with children and her ability to connect with them, plays a huge role in our ability to capture their real personality.”

Our Studio
Located on a farm in the Worcestershire village of Childswickham, our studio premises provides our clients with a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. The studio is suitable for typical family groups, children, baby and maternity portraits. More information about your studio portrait session.

Our Meadow
We have the advantage of being able to offer outdoor portrait sessions in our 2 acre meadow. Seeded with swaying grasses and wild flowers the meadow starts looking good in May and carries on right through to the autumn. Rustic props, five barred gates and winding paths, creates a superb environment for children who can relax and enjoy the unfettered freedom of the great outdoors. More information about your meadow portrait session.

Beyond the studio
We are fortunate to live in the Cotswolds, an area of outstanding beauty. The area is blessed with a stunning range of vistas and backdrops for our photography. We know the locale intimately and we very happy to suggest a location for your portraits, be it woodland, rolling hills, fields awash with swaying corn, or ancient green lanes.
