My name is Joanne, and I am a portrait photographer based in Carlisle, Cumbria. My interest in photography began when I travelled the world back in 2009. I enjoyed taking photographs of people living in the moment and enjoying their travel experiences. When I returned home to Cumbria, I wanted to continue creating memorable photographs for people. So, I began by setting up in my local community centre around my day job. With the support of friends, family, and loyal customers, this went very well, and I decided to invest in a home-based portrait photography studio right here in Carlisle.
That was when Studio 5 was born, at number 5 Beck Road.
In 2017 we welcomed our little girl, Eva Ray into the family, followed by our second baby Toby in 2019. With a growing family came the need for a bigger home. So, we set about an extension which also gave me the perfect opportunity to build a new and improved photography studio. Having our own children only enhanced my passion for capturing special moments on camera. I look forward to helping you do the same.
Whether you’re looking for a maternity photo shoot, precious newborn pictures, or a family portrait, Studio 5 can capture it all. Click here for more information on portrait photography.
Pets are also part of the family so are most welcome to join you for a photo shoot, or for their own portrait session. Prior to focusing on photography I was a trained veterinary nurse, and as an animal owner myself I have a flexible and patient approach when it comes to photographing your pets.

That brings us up to date with where we are now. Ready to welcome you into the studio and capture some beautiful photos of your loved ones. Whilst my photography is mainly studio based, if you have a particular place of interest in the Carlisle area, or would like photos taken in the comfort of your own home or garden, please do get in touch and we can discuss your needs further.
