Case Study: Lisa Larkham Photography

Lisa Larkham Photography specialises in capturing images of all things family such as engagements, weddings, bump, new born, baby, toddler and graduation.


Lisa is a 25-year-old who has had keen interest in art from a very young age. She developed this into her adult life by completing a foundation year in art and design and then studying for a degree in photography at the University of Ulster, Belfast.

She completed the Regional Start with Carrickfergus Enterprise and went on to test market her business through the Steps to Work programme. During this period she built up a reputation for photography in a very relaxed and friendly style. Photoshoots can be undertaken in a client’s own home, making the process much less stressful.

Upon completing test trading, Lisa decided that she could set up her business on a full time basis.

Over the next year she aims to expand her coverage across Northern Ireland and to develop a range of photographic products such as mugs and T-shirts.

Without assistance from Carrickfergus Enterprise, I don't know where I would be. It helped me create my business plan and also assisted with the setting up my operation.
