Studio Renovations Continue…

Today was another step forward in our preparations for a busy 2016. 

Today Janette and I have extended the studio area length by two feet and extended the chroma key backdrop right across the room – now 12 ft wide – to allow us to accommodate larger groups – perhaps up to 8 or ten adults for group portraits – so our 2016 Groupon offerings will include Family Portraits as well as babies.   

We look forward to welcoming you and your family in 2016!

Terrible Twos? Not at all!

Terrible Twos? Not at all!

Someone once told me that when a baby turns two that marks the beginning of the ‘terrible twos’ – when all restraints are off, and baby does what she likes, when she likes, and learns to complain loudly when he or she doesn’t get her own way!  But not always!  Today for my single family portrait photography session at Dundonald, (I was at a wedding this afternoon) I had this really delightful little two-year old, whose activities were more than enough to provide fun for the camera!  Including a great desire to carry a chair around with her!  (A small Ikea child’s chair – I hasten to add!)

Here she is on the sheepskin rug in the studio..

Reaching for the Moon #Nikon, #Chromakey

Reaching Up…

An advantage of digital photography is the spontaneity that it allows, which makes family portrait photography so much fun,and so full of unexpected opportunities. One of yesterday’s family photo sessions at Dundonald featured a little girl who reached upwards, just as the camera was on her.  What a great pose – totally unplanned, and so a great opportunity to show her reaching for the moon!

Work Selfie

Playing with the Bronica after a Photoshoot today and I decided to do a ‘selfie’. Why not?  Everyone else is doing it!  So I propped the iPhone on a proper prop, and popped the camera thingy with a 10 second delay to allow me to pop back into position.

Baby Dreams Come True! (Well, kinda…)

Our newest studio prop for Babies!

We’re always looking for new ideas to make your Baby Photos the Best Ever!  So here’s our latest studio acquisition – a Baby Hammock / Dream Catcher thingy.


Go for the traditional approach – or perhaps something a little more unusual…


And yes – it is perfectly safe!  Despite the fact that it looks like it’s swinging from the stars, baby’s bottom is about an inch off the table! (Oh the wonders of Chromakey!)

Book your Baby Package, or Baby of the Month Appointment to see your little one in this and other beautiful poses.
