Our Mission Is To Make Photography Day Easier!

More Choice, Less Work, More Fun!

Hi, and thank you for letting us introduce ourselves. We are Lawson Wright Studios, an independent photography studio based in the centre of Wakefield and our aim is to make photo day at your nursery a much less stressful and much more rewarding day. We specialise in children’s portrait photography and work closely with a number of nurseries, play centres and playgroups in the West Yorkshire area as well as running our busy studio. We have worked hard to successfully build long term relationships with our nurseries as they know we put maximum effort into the shoots to get the best results for their parents. Please visit our References page for more information. Below are the key areas of how we operate which we hope will bring you the services, quality and support you need to make photo day fun again!

The Shoot

It's All About Having Fun!

  • Less Work For You On The Day
  • We Take Around 12 Images Per Child For Variety
  • We Play With The Kids Using Bubbles & Balls To Get The Best Smiles
  • We Offer Different Photography Styles
We understand that you have a nursery to run and not a photography studio which is why we try to take as much of the admin away from you and your staff leaving you to get on with running your nursery! Lots of nursery staff have told us in the past that photo day can be quite stressful, so we have put a system in place that will take all the work out of your hands. On the day all we ask is that you let us in and help organise the kids for the photo shoots, we will do the rest.

By bringing our studio attitude to your nursery, we put everything we can into each shoot, playing and laughing with the children to get the big smiles and relaxed, professional studio quality shots. We really enjoy bringing out the children’s personalities to capture those unique images for parents. It’s all about having fun! We will play with balls, bubbles, pull faces and make silly noises; everything that children love, so that they are relaxed and join in. We photograph each child one at a time, unless there are siblings that want to be photographed together and aim to achieve around 12 images per child so that parents have as much choice as possible. We photograph in an area designated by you, depending on the style of photography you have asked for, and aim to cause minimal disruption to the nursery and the staff on the day.

Over the years we have developed a range of photo shoots enabling you to offer parents thoughout the year giving parents a fantastic choice of styles to pick from so there really is something for everyone, please visit our Photography Styles page to find out more!

Viewing And Ordering

Once we've gone your job is done!

  • No More Dealing With Orders & Chasing Money
  • Easy Online Viewing & Ordering
  • Parents Can Contact Us Direct With Any Queries
  • We Send Orders Direct To Parents
Once we have gone your part is just about done, all we ask is that you hand out the preview sheets to parents and we'll do the rest! We will first head back to the studio to edit the images and a few days later we will return with all the image preview sheets for you to hand out to parents. On the preview sheet are all the thumbnail images from the shoot that are available to order, a price list and a unique code to view the images online.

Our state of the art website makes viewing and ordering a doddle! All parents can view the images on the secure area of the our site by using their own unique and secure code which is provided on their preview sheet with all instructions on how to use it. Once the images have been viewed the parents can then place orders for any prints or packages and pay online or they can call us directly at the studio where we can take an order over the phone, which makes it a nice and easy and much more relaxing way to view the images and place an order than ever before.

When we receive the order we then post the prints direct to the parent’s home address, this means that you no longer need to deal with the distribution of orders and with the collection of payments or any queries - this is all done directly through the studio.

Advertising The Day

We Will Provide Everything you Need!

We supply you with all the advertising material needed to promote the day. A few weeks prior to the day of the shoot we will send you your marketing pack which will include 6 A3 posters advertising the date and as many A5 price list flyers as you need to hand out to parents. This flyer will contain a list of our prices and, of course, the date of the shoot. If you feel you need anything else to market the day of the shoot we can certainly make arrangements to help you out with any ideas.
