  • JS Photography Studio has a certain style and way to photograph babies and families so it is important as a client that you understand by booking JS Photography Studio you will be getting similar to our previous work
  • NOTE: NO ACCESS TO TOILET AND BATHROOM FACILITY! Unfortunately, there is no access to a toilet or bathroom due to the studio being in a converted garage and public liability insurance does not cover clients within the home. As it’s inside it is not deemed safe for both parties. Therefore you would need to make sure you are aware of this and prepare to go beforehand. There is a local shopping centre that has toilets. We apologise for any inconvenience.
