About Eleanor Skan

After 10 years as a professional photographer in London working with magazines and publishing houses, I moved with my husband and our growing family to the bigger skies and cleaner air of north Essex.  As a photographer, it came naturally to me to record the way our children were growing and changing, and to use my expertise to print our favourite images in a way that gives them a timeless quality.

In essence this was the inspiration for my company, Beautiful Black and White. 

My mission is to give your portraits that special significance, to truly capture the personality of your family.  To achieve this I have chosen to work in the crisp, clear, elegant style of beautiful black and white.

Moments to treasure vanish so quickly, make them a permanent part of your family story with a beautiful black and white image.
