Jackie Frost Photography
I have loved photography from a very young age – I was fascinated by the concept of seeing the people and things around me in a different way.
Although I didn't know it at the time, my career really got going whilst I was a nanny in the US, and started snapping children, and found I had a talent for getting them to laugh and pose naturally. I got some wonderful shots, and created a darkroom for my black and white prints in the bathroom!
When I returned to the UK I worked for my Professional Photographers' Certificate, and after a few years working in professional labs, I launched my own business in 1997 and have never looked back.
I have done all sorts of work including commercial, fundraising, conferences, actors/amateur dramatics. In particular I love working with the local schools and nurseries and I have had several of the older youngsters doing work experience with me which has been great fun.
In my spare time I have worked as a volunteer with my local Library, fundraising and running activities and outings for local people and helped out at a local parent and toddler group. I enjoy sewing and craft and also I love to spend time down on my allotment growing vegatables and herbs.
During my years of working for myself I have travelled extensively around the world. One of my dearest memories is helping in a hospital for disabled children in Guatemala .
I like to capture a child in their true essence, portray the joy and happiness that children give us all with a beautiful smile. Most of my work is very to the camera so when looking at your portrait it is like the person is connecting with you.
If you have any questions regarding my work please do not hesitate to get in touch, it would be lovely to hear from you!
"I am pleased to highly recommend Jackie as she was our photographer at our wedding. Such a special day and all those wonderful moments caught on camera. Jackie is such a bubbly lady and put all our guests at ease. Jackie took some amazing shots and it's so nice to look back at our album full of fun memories."
"Jackie has been taking photos of my boys since 2002, first there were 3 and then 4 so no easy task to get a good picture of all of them but she has never failed and we have some lovely photos as a result. I always look forward to our annual photo evening."
"Jackie was an absolute joy to work with! Jackie is always patient with the children, professional and always puts the children at ease. I have had both of my children photographed by Jackie in the past and I will continue to use her for future shoots. I can’t recommend her enough!"
"We used JFPhotography to capture our wedding photos. Jackie was fantastic and captured the photos very beautifully, creating a lovely memory for us. The service was professional and very friendly. We invited Jackie to come back to capture photos of our son when he was 3 months old and again when he was 2. Great photography!!"
"The only person I have ever met who can get my two monkeys looking at the camera and smiling at the same time! Beautiful photos on many occasions, matched by the fabulous service. Definitely the best photographer..and ridiculously reasonable prices!"
"On the day of our Wedding Jackie was a true professional from start to finish. Not only was everyone totally at ease having their photos taken, they were still raving about her at the reception. Personally we are both a bit uncomfortable in front of the camera, but Jackie had us laughing, relaxed and totally enjoying ourselves being photographed as the day went on. Well done Jackie an achievement in its self.
The quality and variety of the pictures was amazing and all my family loved the pictures. So a well deserved Thank You Jackie you added to our special day. We would highly recommend you to anyone that needs a truly exceptional and totally professional photographer."
"We are absolutely thrilled with our photos! Our four year old son was really not keen on posing but Jackie made him laugh and feel at ease and this really comes out in the photos. We will definitely use Jackie again."

"Jackie you've done an amazing job considering the material"
Jackie's blend of professionalism and fun made our photography session an enjoyable experience. We were delighted with our photos - she managed to capture the essence of the day and most importantly she made us all smile.
What a wonderful time we had. Jackie is so good at keeping the children full of smiles and laughter. It has the same effect on the adults too. Wonderful results. Couldn't have hoped for better photos. Thank you Jackie.
