The Spirit Experience
About Us

Spirit Photographic is an award winning family run studio.

Are you ready?

One advertising campaign had as its catch phrase “It’s all in the preparation pet” and this remains true not just for decorating but in the creation of your special images. When you ring to book we will discuss your shoot in detail regarding what to wear (see FAQs) and bring with you. We love props that are personal to you and your family. It gives the photographer something to work with in both design terms and in the creation of a story or in creating a narrative. Big props work better than small ones so think big. Bring in collections of records (or gnomes or teapots!) and ignite your own imaginative juices. The shoot is a collaboration between you and the photographer and the more personality you bring the more fun, bright and imaginative the images will be. Think about your interests, dreams and what activities you like to do with your loved ones. Need some advice? Give us a call and we’ll help you to decide what to bring.

A new kind of Church

The Spirit studio is a beautiful, awesome, magical space. This old Methodist church in Bath has created the perfect environment for family portrait photography. It has its own car park [yippee], is easy to find, has state-of-the-art [oh yes] facilities Including a dedicated viewing room, changing room, make-up area and reception/gallery space. We believe that the church is the perfect environment to celebrate family love and togetherness.

The Big Shoot Out

A photographic shoot at Spirit is a fun experience. It is not about sitting stiffly in rows with fixed smiles. It is a collaboration between photographer and subject with one common aim. To take some awesome pictures of you and your family. We ask you to get involved and engage in a variety of activities and exercises. This way we get to capture some real expressions and dynamic poses. It’s the only way to break the ice and express the real you. It can be fun. Honest! If however you prefer more classic images with dark backgrounds and moody lighting for individual portraits no problem as we specialise in this creative ‘arty’ style in our makeover studio (Divine Divas).

Let’s Add some Magic

The pictures shot on the day are just the starting point for the creation of powerful images. The selection, editing and retouching is done by your photographer and as a creative artist they will be able to enhance the photographs to create design led images. On your side it’s a good idea to spend some time deciding where to hang your portraits before you return for your viewing. This will help you choose what size and style you wish to buy.

Money back guarantee – We want you to be absolutely delighted with the images we take of you and your family. If you are not, we will either reshoot the session or refund any money you have paid us.

The show must go on

Once your shoot is finished a mutually convenient appointment will be made to view your selected images. This process can be a lot of fun as you see how wonderful you look. We show the images onto a large screen in a dedicated, purpose built viewing room. You will be first asked to choose your favourites and then from these which images you wish to purchase. Our qualified viewer will guide you in your choices of both image selection and presentation method. Your home and taste will be considered as you choose between a large but not overwhelming variety of styles. We offer frameless, classic and desktop styles and even money-saving ‘bundles’ or collections. Watch out as well for our seasonal special offers which can include High Res files and print packages

Walking the Walk

The proof is in the pudding as they say. The final product that you will receive is what all our efforts have been about. However you have chosen to have your images presented whether canvass, framed or frameless, quality is the key. We offer a no-quibble guarantee that you will not pay for your product unless you are completely satisfied. We understand that your artwork is an investment and needs to be perfect. That is why we spare no pains to ensure that everything is just so and properly packaged to protect your purchase. Orders take between 2-8 weeks depending on the product ordered. If this occasionally takes longer due to special requests, third party deliveries or suppliers we will let you know.
