My name is Klara and I am the owner and photographer of The Second Star Photography.

I've had interest in photography ever since I was a child. I loved (and still love) going through old photos of my family and reliving the beautiful, precious memories we share. I love the feeling of a physical photograph and the meaning behind it. One photograph can mean a thousand words...

I am a photographer specilising in newborn, pet and family photography to capture your precious memories and make them last forever. Based in Bicester, but covering the whole of Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire and Buckinghamshire, I strive to provide exceptional customer service and breathtaking, unique products while photographing your beautiful little ones and your family in timeless style for you to treasure forever. 

I have completed a CPR training for babies aged 0-1 and have insurance and policies in place. Safety of your little one is my upmost priority and I always work at your little one's pace as each baby is different and requires different amount of soothing and slightly different handling. Some babies take a little longer to fall asleep than others and so in my newborn sessions I work with each individual baby and their needs to create relaxed atmosphere where you and your little one feel comfortable and safe. I have completed COVID-19 prevention course and you can read about my COVID-19 safety guidelines and policies HERE

In my spare time I love nature, I'm an animal lover and a netflix & music junkie.
