About Karen Hilton Photography

Welcome to my website and thank you for taking the time to read a little bit about me.

I love Black and White photography, I am drawn to it like a magnet, as a child I would only draw with a charcoal pencil on white paper, the teachers thought I was colour blind which my parents thought was hilarious as I knew all my colours before starting school.

Digital photography has changed how people view their images, when they are stored on disc or USB they are placed in a drawer and forgotten about, images printed are looked at and enjoyed so much more.

Preserving memories using photography has always been a passion of mine, I have always printed my images and stored them in albums, I still do this today, ‘cloud’ storage and external hard drives are where I store my negatives.

I do love photographing children of all ages, from little ones to teenagers with attitude. I prefer to not ask them to smile if they don’t want to, I think images of them being themselves, natural and spontaneous is what parents love the most. These are the images they want, printed big, framed on the walls in their homes.

I had a home studio for a long time which served me well, as my business has gone from strength to strength I realised I needed more space, my commercial work has grown so significantly that I now rent a unit in Runcorn, Cheshire which allows me to take on more commissions.

Thank you for visiting my site and I hope to hear from you soon.
