Frankie & Friends
We are husband and wife team. Ralph is the talented photographer and I do anything else (but mainly manage Ralph). We came to Canterbury in 2016 to escape the busy life of New York and Ralph’s demanding career in the finance industry.
We decided to follow Ralph’s decades long passion for portrait photography so we could have a better-quality life for our growing family (currently us, Frankie, who is 4 and Ella who is 0). Frankie and Friends is the result. It’s also freed up some hobby time for Ralph to learn to play guitar more tunefully – thank goodness for that.
Frankie & Friends Ltd is a central Canterbury based Family Photography Studio with a friendly atmosphere and great facilities to accommodate your needs for coffee (freshly ground!) and your kids’ endless need for play.
Our aim is to capture the unique personalities of your family members and produce timeless pieces of art that you will want to exhibit proudly on your wall for years to come. We know that the great images come from genuine smile and laughter and we work hard to make sure everyone has a great time.
Your end-to-end experience is important to us and we want those genuine smiles to continue right through the ordering session too; you will not find any pushy sales techniques here!
Photographing seven individuals is no mean feat especially when the youngest is 4 and as soon as a camera appears pulls the most amazing faces. Ralph, as usual, was fabulous, a cup of tea on arrival, boys played with the convenient corner of toys he has.
Everything was calm and relaxed no rushing, so accommodating, lots of chatter about what we wanted, styles and combinations. He got the middle one to do as he is told, the youngest to smile, and everyone to shine. We had a really enjoyable family morning and absolutely love the final products.
