About us

At Noir-Blanc Photography we are passionate about Black and White photography, our Less is More style creates images to be handed down through families as heirlooms.

The simplistic style of Black and White produces images of an ageless quality, preserving memories of children growing up with portraits they will love. Children have a sense of belonging when they see pictures of themselves around the home, our aim is to provide you with classic, timeless images of your children that will look as good today as they will for future generations.

No parent has ever said they have too many photographs of their children, we can help you preserve your family history with portraits, printed big on the walls of your home, you will be glad you did ❤️

The Beauty side of the business came about when hearing a lady say how she felt ugly when she was pregnant, no lady should feel this way, she is amazingly beautiful…..nurturing a baby is such a precious time.

You don’t have to wear your underwear, you can wear your favourite dress or outfit, some ladies have their shoot split into two parts, the beauty shoot then the boudoir shoot, the choice is yours, above all we will have lots of laughs and oodles of fun.

Maternity boudoir is a fabulous opportunity to show off your bump, it really is a privilege to photograph this very special time in your life ❤️

Boudoir photography is very personal and intimate, the studio is very private and every consideration is given to ensure our ladies are extremely comfortable. The feedback from clients is fabulous to hear, they feel special and beautiful……leaving the studio wanting to do it all again!!

Our photography is more than a job, it is a privilege to be able to create images you will treasure, preserving your memories forever.

Karen has been a photographer for 30 years, she has documented her own boys growing up and is doing the same with her grandchildren, she has an abundance of patience with children, treating them as individuals and giving them her undivided attention.

From a very early age Karen had a love of black and white, from old family pictures to films and art, this was the only route her creative world would  allow her to thrive.


Karen is a member of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP) as well as The Master Photographers Association (MPA) which enables her to keep up to date with everything photography related.

Our studio is in Halton Village, Runcorn, Cheshire
