Welcome to Katrina Shepherd Photography
I’m a family portrait photographer based in Blackburn with Darwen and also shoot in many other areas of Lancashire. My sessions are often outside on location but I can also photograph you in your home and against plain backdrops too. I like branching out into other genres so feel free to get in touch about anything!
My initial interest in photography came from picking up an old film camera when I was thirteen, the thrill of capturing a moment and turning it into something to keep forever has stuck with me ever since. From there I went on to study photography at university and then work in London as an assistant photographer before branching out on my own. Since moving to Lancashire the beautiful scenery has constantly inspired me.
When you book a shoot with me you’ll get all of my expertise, experience, and commitment to make sure you end up with photographs you’ll love. I endeavour to make the whole process from start to finish enjoyable and easy for you.
What to expect from a session with me
Before the session itself I like to have a consultation with clients so we can talk about what you’d like from the shoot; what pictures you want to get, where you’d like the session to be, etc. It’s also a good way to get to know each other a little better and break the ice before the shoot!
On the day I’ll meet you at the location you have chosen and we can quickly go over your requirements again before we start. The shoot will last between 1-2 hours.
After the shoot you will be able to choose a product package and the images you’d like from either an online gallery or an appointment with me at your home. Find out more and see my prices here: Pricing and What to Expect

It was quite a drizzly morning when I met up with Alice, her mum, and her grandparents in Sunnyhurst Woods, Darwen for a family photo session. We'd considered postponing but Alice was so excited to have her picture taken and splash around in the pond. We decided to go...
