There are so many amazing photographers in the world, and finding the right that’s best for you is a huge decision.
I believe connection and trust are both really important when choosing a photographer to work with.
So let me introduce myself and my photography business a little bit so you can see if we’d be good match.


Bernadette Barna Toth- Photographer in Portishead

My name is Bernadette Barna Toth and I am a professional photographer in Portishead, Bristol. 

My friends know me as an always smiling, really friendly person.

I’m a family girl, wife to a great man and a mum to a wonderful child who has been my inspiration over the last years, allowing me to combine the things I am most passionate about: children  &  family photography. 

I cultivates an unusually high sensitivity to beauty, art and nature. I  love and appreciate works of art and beautiful things. I am also a singer, songwriter, jewellery maker, graphic designer, and a really crafty mum who is always working on a creative project.
I have many different interests and creative pursuits in my life but behind all these things, there is a common motivation for me: the ability to create something beyond amazing and magical that will make people all be happy and to spread some positivity to everyone.
In my personal life I find it really important to live with awareness in the present moment, by paying attention with a sense of warmth and kindness, as well as a sense of curiosity and openness..

How it all started…

Photography is both my calling and my profession. I remember – I was 15 years old when I got my first camera for my birthday. I could hardly stop putting the camera down, I had to take photos of all the beauty of nature. At the time I realised life is more beautiful than I thought, and I wanted to capture the moment for the future being. In the beginning, I took macro photos and discovered the little species, after then I wanted to explore the whole world to make stunning photos for other people and about people.

There are so many things that I love to photograph, for example: people, animals, flowers, landscapes, events and every single magical moment where I can. Whatever type of photo shoot I have, one thing is common: when I am looking at my photos I want to feel my pictures are coming alive and full of emotions. Each photo has a story, therefore each photo is unique. There is nothing more fulfilling to me than to capture emotion, and then use those images to create original works of art what reflect your personality and what you can enjoy for a lifetime. Photography is more than just a job for me.. It is a gift, I get to give to others that last for a lifetime and beyond.

My mission is to make YOU happier and to show you how gorgeous the world where we are living and how beautiful everyone is.

Being a great photographer is more
than just mastering the camera.

There is so much about a photographer’s skillset that doesn’t always visible when simply looking at the image. Photography is a form of art and it requires a creative mind, but also a good skill to work with people. I have been in business for 9 Years, and I am proud to see the achievement and development I’ve made throughout these last years. I have acquired lot of skills while I was working on some beautiful portraits, and I am still passionate about learning new things and achieving skills. I believe you never stop learning.

One of my biggest strengths is my retouching skills. You don’t need to worry about people in the background, any unwanted items or everyone looking at the same time at the camera.  

I can do a great range of editing from a simple head swaps to complicated high-end retouch.

I think communicating is crucial to get the best images therefore I love to chat between shots but I always have my camera ready to capture a genuine smile.

I am engaging, warm, really friendly and emphatic. I am happy to guide the photo sessions along.

A photographer wishes to share what she sees by capturing it into an image. Therefore every photograph captured by me reflects how I see the world. Beautiful, heart warming, emotional, with a touch of magic.

I can easily imagine my subject in different ways and make the image look unique and creative.
