Northampton Children’s Portrait Photographer

I’m Andy Nickerson, a Northampton children’s portrait photographer who specialises in capturing children’s real characters, their subtle little expressions and naturally vibrant personalities in gorgeous black and white portraiture.

As a professional photographer with over 18 years experience, and a Dad, I know exactly how to create a calm relaxed atmosphere.  The children and families I work with are always ‘themselves’ in front of my lens.


“We’ve had many ‘professional’ photos of our boys done over the years but nothing that comes anywhere close to those done by Andy. The friendly relaxed atmosphere produced stunning, natural and outstanding high-quality pictures. I get pleasure when I look at them every day.” Jo, Oliver & William’s Mummy from Northampton

My Portrait Studio

I work with families from across the UK and I’m based from my purpose designed and detached home studio in the village of Brixworth, rural Northamptonshire.  Here I create a family friendly and calm atmosphere that is highly professional whilst still retaining a certain intimacy. I shoot a maximum of two private commissions a day ensuring both unrivalled customer care and exceptionally high artistic standards.

Black and White Portraiture

My style is instantly recognisable as I love richly toned, velvety black and white portrait photography with tightly cropped compositions.  My lighting is subtle and understated, designed to enhance and flatter, not distract.  My approach is to boldly strip away all distractions, ensuring the natural essence of your family is captured in beautiful fine art images that you’ll treasure forever.

I believe that nothing should ever shout or out shine the natural emotion and charisma of the child.

“Beautiful photography, capturing the innocence & natural expressions of children. Loved Andy’s worked from the moment I saw it in Toddle About magazine. The one particular shot we chose of our son melts my heart everytime I see it. Thank you so much for doing such an amazing job! ” Ria, Jack’s Mummy from Roade, Northamptonshire.

My Latest Passion… Newborn Photography

Teaming up with my talented wife Debbie, who adds her own unique flair for styling and baby whispering, I’m now applying the same philosophy to my newborn portraits, resulting in a unique marriage of the classically posed with the more contemporary and natural abstract.

A true creative partnership!
