Perfect pictures, perfect service. My little girl loved her fairy photo shoot and the staff took care of my whole family. They also did us a really good deal and we left with 7 prints!

I really enjoyed the shoot, all staff were super friendly and professional. Pictures were great. The only reason I've given 4 stars is because on receipt of the photo's the retouching was poor. It seemed very rushed and blurry in places so I requested the originals and will see if I can get them retouched myself. Apart from that I had a good experience with Fresh. More...

Achieved my new year’s ambition of feeling better about my body! The boudoir shoot was fun (a little chilly at first but warmed up quickly). I felt really safe, I was guided through beautifully and didn’t feel subconscious about anything. They were great at telling me the best angles and how to do a good shot. The photos in the viewing came out really well and I’m incredibly excited to pick them up later! I can’t thank Hope enough especially, she chilled me out and made me have a fantastic time!!!!!

Photography and service doesn’t get much better. We had a CAPOW Superhero shoot and the images blew us away, well worth the investment.

Amazing professional experience.
Everyone was as excited as me.
Not pushy ...down to earth... made this 70 year old the happiest girl possible.
Try it now.

We had a mother/daughter makeover and photo shoot voucher bought for us as a Christmas present. Our shoot was on 28/7/18. As we arrived, we were greeted by Hannah and Lauren who were both super friendly and wonderfully hospitable . Nadine and Gabi both did a wonderful job of dolling us up and making us feel very beautiful. We're both quite camera shy people however, Jade the photographer did a great job of making us feel really comfortable. The photos came out brilliantly. Despite only wanting to leave with 5, we just couldn't resist and ended up leaving with 11 prints, which Lauren also really helpfully helped us narrow down from our 50+ shots. The experience in itself was so much fun. We'd both greatly like to thank the Fresh academy staff for helping us have such a wonderful day. We can't wait to see the final product! More...

No high pressure to buy, just a wonderful experience all round. The photos themselves did the best selling job.
Fantastic work and very happy.

Charlie is great to work with. He makes you feel relaxed and explains cost and asks what you are looking for so that you get an awesome end product. He chooses the best backdrops for your shoot and makes sure you are happy with all that you are getting. He makes sure that the posses are what you want (Natural smiles and positions). One awesome professional and friendly genuine guy. More...

I was given a Peggy Sue pin up photoshoot at Fresh academy for Christmas. I love the 50's style but I can be self conscious. When I went for my appointment however I was made to feel at ease. The hair and make up team were incredible and really friendly (thanks to both!) and the photographer helped me create images that looked better than I could have imagined. I'm already thinking about signing up for another! I would 100% recommend Fresh Academy. More...

Visited the studio on Sunday with my daughter and grandaughter, as I booked the enchanted fairy photo shoot for her. From when I booked the photo shoot
with Charlotte right up to 2 days before we were due to come, we were keep update. The extra touch with the letter from the fairies that came with the confirmation letter was lovely, specially as the photo shoot was going to be a surprise, I was able to send it to her a couple of days before we come.
From the minute we walked through the door, we was made so welcome and put at ease. The clothes were so lovely, but everyone agreed on the same dress. The scenery was magical,She absolutely loved it. The photographer and assistant were lovely, they knew just how to get the best poses from her. When we went for the viewing it was so relaxing, the photo's were shown on a big screen and all the photo's were so lovely, they captured her perfectly. The guy helped us to choice the best ones, even thou I loved them all. It was so hard. As we were finding it hard to narrow it down, and we couldn't afford to buy all of them, we was given a good deal. We had a fantastic experience from start to finish. Can't wait to see the photo's when they come, and I will highly recommend this to anyone who's thinking about having a photo shoot. Thank you for a great afternoon.

Last week I took my daughter Emmy in to fresh for a fairy shoot. This was not an unfamiliar environment for my soon to be 2 year old, fresh have photographed her before ( aged 8 months and as my huge bump! !)
We were both made to feel so very special right from the moment we walked through the door, where we were greeted by the lovely photographer.
I allowed them to select the most beautiful outfit for her...I'd have put her in them all!!
The shoot was amazing, although she spent most of her time destroying the set...they never got cross and just laughed at my 'isnt she just so cute' little minx of a fairy.
My viewing was orchestrated by a wonderful girl, and our photographer, they were both so sweet. It helped that they both adored my gorgeous girl. It took me a while..but I managed to select the most beautiful of an amazing set of photographs. I loved the fact that in all the photos they captured the pure essence of my child...a cute but pickle of a fairy!!!

My experience was just amazing. These 2 ladies deserve the biggest of thank you's for how brilliant they made us feel. From the bottom of my heart I say thank you ladies from myself and Little Miss Emmy....ps her bite mark on her cheek is going down! (They will understand that!)

I can assure you that we will certainly be back for more photos with fresh! Perhaps next time we will do the family shots!

Well I'm usually a pessimistic person with all this but today we were at Fresh and the people there were all great from arriving with the hair and make up team, the photographers and then the review of the shoot, no obligation to buy and no pressure but such great photos, there were no way I was leaving without buying a selection. A great day with a great company �I would certainly travel to this company again even though I'm from Derbyshire. I would strongly recommend Fresh to anyone looking for a good photo shoot. More...

I had been given a Groupon voucher for a Peggy Sue photo shoot. So excited never done anything like this before. My friend and I were greeted by a friendly member of staff who went though what I would like out of this, showed me the various package prices of what was on offer but made it very clear from the start I was under no obligation to purchase any additional prints. We were offered a drink while we waited and then taken up to hair and make up. Both the girls in there were very friendly and completed my Peggy Sue look, I have to admit I was stunned by the results, they done a really great job so much so I didn’t recognize myself.
My friend and I were then taken down to the studio for the photo shoot.
I changed into an outfit I had bought with me and the photographer started taking the pictures. I felt very at ease and was really enjoying the experience. I changed into a second outfit for additional pictures.
We were then taken to view and decide on my free one. They were all very good and it was hard to decide, at no point was there any hard sell if you wanted additional then you could buy them same as if you only wanted the free one that was given with the Groupon Voucher then you could do that also. There was no pressure to purchase more than you wanted.
I had a fantastic day and would highly recommend this to anyone
Photo prices are in line with most photographers and are under no obligation to purchase additional pictures. Would like to thank Fresh Academy for a fun afternoon which I thoughly enjoyed.

We have just had a three generation photo shoot that my daughters bought me for mother's day. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The make up artist, Sarah, was excellent and made us all look stunning. Jade, our photographer was lovely and very open to suggestions. We had my two year old granddaughter with us and she was treated like a princess. They were absolutely brilliant at getting stunning shots of her, even when she wasn't keen to cooperate. Having been to other reknowned photography companies, the day was definitely good value for money. We were three hours in make up and hair, the shoot was unhurried and took most of the afternoon. When it came to the horrendous decision of which photos to choose we did not feel that we were under any pressure to buy more than we could afford and there were zero interest payment plans available should you wish to spread the cost. We paid more to have digital copies so that we could divide them between us. The only reason I didn't give the experience 5 stars was that it was a long time for a two year old and a pregnant lady to.last without food and as always good quality photography is not cheap.

We availed of the fairy themed photoshoot for our daughter. Getting to the place is a bit tricky at first as the sat nav does not take you direct to the place but keep your eyes peeled -it is is there. A visible signage would help direct newbies.
There was a good selection of costumes for the kids and the shoot went really smoothly and it was a fun and pleasant experience for our family and the Lauren the photographer and Melody made us feel at ease and have excellent creative input in the poses.
The next stage was with a lovely chap Nick who helped us pick the shots we want. I must say i did not intend to get anymore shots than the deal with Groupon but the raw pictures taken were really good and it was a shame not to have them.
No hard sell and we took our time in choosing the right package we were happy to avail and afford. Nick gave us a good deal that was going on and explained our options clearly.
Looking forward to the pics. I highly recommend this service!!!
