At Bumblebee Studios we realise that your family are the most important thing and we will work with you to capture images that show off the true character of your little ones.
We shoot mainly on a high key background for babies, but also have the use of blue and pink backgrounds for creating a different look and feel.
Every parent loves their little girls dressed up as a ballerina - and at Bumblebee Studios we have many years worth of experience photographing girls of all ages dressed as ballerinas.
At Bumblebee Studios we create amazing images of your children, your families, your friends, yourselves - and we do it in our amazing studio in Gloucester, or at a location of your choice.
We prefer colourful fun relaxed images, we like to use props where possible, a scarf, a hat even an umbrella! But if you like plain grey or black backgrounds and no props, we can do that too. Have a look at some of the amazing images created at Bumblebee Studios!

Hello I'm Colin (that's me below) I run Bumblebee Studios, a family and portrait photography studio in Gloucester.
By my side I have Vanessa, Abigail and Boris. Boris is my dog, and yes, he was named after “THE” Boris, not because he went to private dog school, but because he looks like Boris, all floppy blond hair. I love Boris (the Dog I hasten to add)
Vanessa is my partner, my friend, my rock - without her stuff just doesn’t happen. Abigail is my gorgeous daughter 7 going on 17
Between us - we are Bumblebee Studios
We would be thrilled to be your photographer and will do everything we can to make your photo session special.
