Opening of a brand new photography studio in Uppermill

A brand new photography studio has opened on the High Street, Uppermill.

Tina Hevingham, 36, a photographer specializing in newborns and young children, opened the doors to her studio above the DIY store this month after being at home for the past three years.

Showing up on social media, the photographer wrote: “Tina Hevingham Photography is my small business, my passion, my love and a big part of my life.

“I love what I do, photographs are the memories we forever treasure and look back on when our children have grown up, and I’m honored that so many new parents choose me to create those memories, it truly means the world.”

Tina, who is originally from Hollingworth and now lives in Dukinfield, fell in love with Uppermill while on maternity leave.

She said: ‘I was going to Uppermill a lot, visiting the canal and taking bike rides. It’s a beautiful village. Having a studio there felt good to me.

The mother-of-two, who previously worked as a cabin crew and executive personal assistant, began her photography journey just under three years ago.

Discussing her career change, Tina said: “It was a big leap of faith. I wanted to do something I’m passionate about and get more satisfaction out of my job.

On her website, Tina writes: “Being a mom of two girls myself, I have such strong maternal instincts, so I took my passion for creative photography and combined that with my love for precious little newborns”.

Tina invested in camera gear, took a crash course in photography, and found professional photographers to guide her.

She was backed by the support of her husband Danny Hevingham, who runs The Cheshire Outhouse, and said she couldn’t have done it without him.

Tina has ambitions to get so busy she will have to ‘turn people away’ and has placed adverts at both Royal Oldham and Tameside Hospital.

Discussing what sets her apart from other photographers, she said: “I have a distinctive rustic style, I use the best newborn suppliers for props and parents and caregivers know they will get the best quality and that their baby will be in the best of hands. ”
