“It isn’t what a picture is of, it is what it is about.”
John Szarkowski, Curator & Photographer.
For me this great quote means creating images which capture important moments for people. I also love to frame places and spaces, people and interesting things, for a wide range of briefs, both for clients, and for my own personal projects.
I am intrigued by the play of light on the shapes that surround us and how the colour of light changes the mood and characteristics of what we see. At the moment I feel particularly Inspired by nature and love exploring the elements that make an image peaceful or uplifting.

A FEW TESTIMONIALS
“ You have the ability to inspire and bring out the best in every room you photograph!”
Janet Barbour Painted Interiors
“Janet has photographed SBD products both in the studio and on location, both have been excellent outcomes with a great range of shots to choose from. As publicity and marketing images, her work has been used on my website and digital portfolios as well as social media posts and newsletters. It was a pleasure to meet and work with Janet and I hope to collaborate with her again.”
Sarah Burghard Designs
”Excellent creative work from Janet Baylis Photography which has enhanced our website enormously.”
Menna Frost, Hestia Soft Furnishings
”Janet did a fantastic job of capturing our wedding…— the people, the place, the special moments and even the decorations. She managed the ideal combination of getting the formal “must have” shots and just quietly recording all the details which we want to remember forever. We have an amazing collection of photos which bring all the happiness of the day flooding back every time we look at them. Thank you Janet!”
Caroline & Ian
”We couldn’t have been happier with the results! Janet got some great pictures of the boys getting ready for the big day, striking the perfect balance between relaxed and formal. This continued into the rest of her shots throughout the day, perfectly capturing the feel of the day with both natural and more traditional shots of family and friends. Overall we couldn’t be happier with the photos!”
Bryn & Catherine
”Janet was with me all morning before my wedding and it was an absolute pleasure to have her there. Her calm and relaxed approach was very much appreciated, on what could have been a stressful morning and she captured some beautiful moments through the day, which we will treasure forever.”
Lucy & Dan
”On the occasion of my parent’s Diamond Wedding anniversary, we asked Janet to take some informal photographs of our family. She listened to what we wanted, was friendly, organised and professional, putting us all at ease – even our self-conscious 18 year old twin sons! The weather conditions were challenging being a particularly hot, sunny summer’s day at midday but Janet produced some beautiful photographs of different sized family groups in a variety of settings which have enabled us to retain a wonderful memento of this very special event.”
