Professional Pre-school Photography


Hello. We’re Jon and Angela, professional photographers since 2005, proud parents since 2009 and founders of ‘Playtime Pictures’.

In 2005, keen photographers Jon and Angela decided to turn their passion into a business. They have been shooting weddings in the UK and Europe, as well as spending plenty of time with their two children, Freja and Felix

They launched Playtime Pictures, specialising in pre-school photography in Sussex and Hampshire, in 2014.

Black + White Art Portraits

Our unique black & white preschool photography captures those moments at preschool that a child’s loved ones seldom get to see. Joining the children in the setting, we draw upon our experience as both photographers and parents to create beautiful, natural portraits.

Creating Timeless Memories

After each session we select the very best pictures of each child for presentation to parents and carers. They are invited to select their favourites and choose from a selection of print sizes. Images can be supplied mounted or as framed art works.

Every parent sees a uniqueness in their child that is not often captured in pictures that are taken by photographers. Angela has the ability to do this through her patience and relaxed approach, the pictures she took of my son showed not only his love of life but kindness of heart.

I could not be happier with the pictures and will use Angela for all our future pictures.

Angela and Jon spent two days in the nursery as it was such a lovely experience for the children and the staff. They really engaged and interacted with all ages of the children and therefore captured amazing pictures of all the children.

I would highly recommend them!

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the wonderful photographs you have taken of our pre-school children.

Jon has captured the children’s personalities in each of these beautiful black and white photographs. Parents were moved when seeing them, and the response and orders have been overwhelming.

Your service has been very professional, and I would highly recommend you to friends and other pre-school settings.

We were recommended to Playtime Pictures by one of our parents. We arranged a visit for Angela to come in to the nursery, and share their portfolio with us. We felt very at ease and positive about her enthusiasm and passion for their work.

One of the most important factors was we didn’t fell under any pressure, they put themselves out to visit the nursery and get to know our environment, and of course the children!

The ‘Photography Days’ in June this year were an enjoyable experience, both Angela and Jon took their time, making the staff and especially the children feel comfortable around their presence.

In fact the whole experience has been delightful, and I certainly feel that Angela and Jon offer a real ‘Personal Touch’ to their work.

We have has such positive feedback from our families, and the end results and orders received prove the real outcome.

So now we can pass on our recommendation to other Early Years settings, without any doubt.
In fact we have already booked again, and look forward to our existing and new families being excited and emotional at seeing their child’s photograph produced in a natural and eye catching way!

We are so pleased with the photos taken by Jon & Angela of our twins at nursery. They have captured their different personalities perfectly.

Having shown them to the twins’ grandparents who were also overwhelmed by them; we have ordered further reprints and the service has been excellent, the quality of the photos and service has been first class.

We have enjoyed Playgroup Portraits visiting our setting. The children have found Jon’s easy and friendly approach unobtrusive and this has helped to produce lovely natural photographs. We will be happy to have them visit again.

I’d had the same photographer for many years, taking the children’s photos, both at play and portrait. Having got to know Jon and Angela through my playgroup, I decided it was time for a change. Jon and Angela will be taking our photos from now on.

The photos they took earlier this year really capture the true spirit of the children at play. It was all done without disruption and because they have young children of their own, they connect with the playgroup children so well. The photos speak for themselves and a few are now featured on our new website. The photos were delivered on time and the after service was very good. I look forward to having them in the playgroup again.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Jon and Angela to anyone who requires photography at it’s best.
