Portraits for all Occasions


Nerses Photo Studio has been photographing families all through the Niagara Region since we opened in 1966.  We have worked with families of all shapes and sizes, for all events.


Secret Cedars:




Secret Cedars is our exclusive park.   It is located behind our Studio at 160-162 Niagara Street in St. Catharines.  It has been specially designed to provide multiple backdrops, ranging from structured stonework to rustic rock gardens.  It is fully fenced in and safe for children and pets to roam.  Secret Cedars can easily accommodate families of any size.  In the event of rain, our indoor studio is nearby, which can hold fifty people for a shoot.

And Beyond:


We are also thrilled to come to your home to take photos of your family.




1.  Do you charge extra for photographing individual families?

No.  We include family breakdowns in the initial deposit.


2.  What do you recommend for clothing?

We recommend that families colour coordinate.  The matches do not have to be perfect, but ensuring that styles and colors are complimentary greatly enhances the final product.  For large groups, we recommend avoiding strong patterns as they can be distracting.
