The Listening Photographer!

WE LISTEN to our customers!  So when they tell us they want a change to a package deal, we act. The new Summer 2017 Price Card is now on the website with no changes except to the Silver Deal, – where in repossessed to customer feedback, we’ve removed the mugs and added extra prints to give our customers an even better option.  After all, some of our images are so irresistible that many of our clients just can’t get enough prints!

Here’s the new price card…


Preparing for your spring photoshoot

Spring is all about new life, new colour, new sunshine coming to the world. So here’s some tips to help you have a relaxed spring photo session.

1) Location

We will find you a great spring location, with lovely buds, new blooms and bulbs arriving. We have a few special places, but if you have somewhere that you know – or is special to you – then please let us know.

2) Timing

Don’t leave it too late, there is a big difference between that perfect spring appearance and when things get a bit tired in summer. So, keep an eye on the weather and the plants around you and book early.

3) Clothing
We recommend you be dressed in layers, spring weather can be a bit hot then cold. Layers mean we can ring the changes very quickly and easily and you don’t get overheated or goosebumps.

4) Colours

Use the colors of spring, obviously green, but blues, pinks and yellows are fantastic in springtime. Go for a color theme throughout the whole group to help make you appear together. Denim jeans always work!

5) Accessories

Make your accessories work with your wardrobe. Again the colors listed above will work well. In general you want either big and chunky or small and discrete. Finely worked jewelry tends not to work too well in images. For women, hair accessories can be a really good, colorful choice.

6) Shoes

Bring a few changes just in case – the ground can be a little muddy at times in springtime. Trainers, loafers and flats are good. Boots can work too – but not furry winter boots.

Platinum Upgrade for January…

So, I’m sitting here thinking, – what can I do to make my lovely customers even happier?  Then this brilliant idea occurred to me.  I’ll UPGRADE THEIR CANVAS!  Just for you.  So I’ve negotiated a deal with my canvas supplier to help me give everyone who buys the Platinum Package a great big 30 x 30* inch canvas – but I’ve had to agree a quantity, and when that quantity is used, it’s back to normal.

So BOOK NOW to get this unrepeatable, once in a studio visit offer!

Winter Photoshoots

Winter Family Session Clothing and Outfits
OK, we know winter can just be wet and miserable, but on a sunny day winter location shoots can be lovely. And if a snowy day is manageable that is all the better!
For colors you really need to stand out with strong, vibrant colors. Choose bright reds, blues or greens. 

Although normally we don’t like patterns actually these can work really well for winter images.

For coats and jackets try and avoid items with strong logo’s – these can be very distracting in the image.

Remember to keep warm, so furry boots, hats, scarves and chunky pullovers are a must.

If you want to keep warm underneath, then thick tights or long johns will help.

Remember to bring flasks of hot drink for you and the children.
