About Me

For me it’s simple. I love photography and preserving precious memories. This love started whilst I was studying black and white photography - I never ceased to be amazed at the beauty of developing photos in the dark room. Inspired by shape, texture and pattern, I spent several years working on a range of personal projects, some of which have been exhibited locally.

My enthusiasm to take contemporary children's portraits began when my first child was born. At the outset friends were so inspired they asked me to take their own children's portraits. Then, following the arrival of my second child, Cecilia Costello Photography was launched.

There is something very special when a parent tells me I've captured the true essence of their child exactly as they see them - whether it's that cheeky grin, soulful expression or sense of fun - it makes me smile every time.

My Style

The aim of my photography is to create beautiful, natural images of your child in their own surroundings, using natural light to capture their true spirit.

Your portrait session can take place at your home or on location at a special place that you visit as a family, maybe the park or the woods.

The whole session is very relaxed and usually starts with a chat over a cup of tea on the morning of the shoot. It lasts around two hours, and then I’ll arrange a return visit with a lovely selection of images for you. At that point, you can choose which of your memories you’d like to be transformed into timeless pieces of art.

To capture your memories forever, please contact me here.

Portrait sessions start from £95.00 within a 25 mile radius from Bradford.

Gift vouchers are available to include the portrait session and ‘memory credits’ that can be redeemed against a product purchase. These make excellent Christmas, birthday, mothers or fathers day gifts.
