Specialist Female Portrait Photo Shoots – Lingerie Not Required!

By |2017-11-04T14:13:05+00:00November 4th, 2017|Categories: Portraiture|Tags: , |

A lot of the time, if you're a woman and want to book a photo shoot, it can seem like the only option that you have is a boudoir session.  Let's be honest, not everybody wants to be photographed in their underwear so what's the option if you just want to get some gorgeous images of yourself fully dressed and looking great!  Well, that would be our dedicated and specialist female portraiture

Bump Maternity Photos

By |2017-07-17T12:27:45+00:00July 17th, 2017|Categories: Family Photography, Maternity and Bumps, Portraiture|Tags: , , , , |

Bump photo's - why they are so special Firstly, let me say this. I recognise that at the end of your pregnancy, you may not feel at your most elegant but to everybody else, you look amazing. People genuinely love to see the bump (and occasionally are moved to lay unsolicited hands on it but that a post for another day!).  Pregnant women, to the rest of the world, do glow and even if you

Flirty Fifties Boudoir Photography in East Grinstead

A cheeky fifties inspired boudoir photography session in my studio (in East Grinstead, West Sussex).  Actually boudoir photography is probably not really the right label for the entire session as it was only the last little section that we got into the lingerie photos.  The rest of the session was fifties cute and girly - sweet and sexy in a gentle flirty way. As the song goes, you don't have to take your clothes off

… images in the post found on the internet … OK, we know winter can just be wet and miserable at times, but on a sunny day Autumn and Winter location shoots can be lovely! And if a snowy day is manageable that is all the better! For colours you really need to stand out with strong, vibrant tones. Choose bright reds, blues or greens. Although normally we don't recommend heavy like patterns or checks

Everyone likes a party and this little gang certainly rocked in the studio for a birthday party photo shoot.  Four different outfits, lots of posing and lots of giggles, they were fabulous girls that's for sure.  We had casual jeans and t-shirt look, onesies (well who doesn't love a onesie?), skater skirts and finally cute and short dresses - so we had lots of different looks to play with both for group and individual shots. Birthday party shoots

Family Photography in East Grinstead

By |2016-11-13T13:39:05+00:00November 12th, 2014|Categories: Latest, Portraiture, Recent Work|Tags: , |

This family came to visit us last week to get some updated family pictures that they could both put on their walls as well as give as Christmas gifts.  They've been coming to us since the little lad in the pictures was very tiny indeed and it is always a pleasure to catch up with them, and their new little baby girl.  That's one of the loveliest things about my job - seeing families over the years, grow up and

Lauren's mum had bought her a gift voucher for a teen makeover photo session and Lauren came very well prepared with a wide selection of outfits and accessories.  We kept her make up quite simple, designed just to enhance her already stunning features (and of course to keep it age appropriate).  When that was completed, we then enjoyed a great fun  hour in the studio, working with different outfits, props and backdrops to create a series of images

Studio Family Portrait – Old Friends

By |2016-11-13T13:48:18+00:00February 7th, 2014|Categories: Latest, Portraiture|Tags: , , |

It was lovely to see these guys back in the studio at the weekend. They have been bringing baby Ana to us since she was just two weeks old as part of the Joey Club baby photography scheme but this time they paid us a visit to grab some portraits of their extended family. It is a larger group that our studio normally accommodates but we made an exception for them as they are such good friends of ours.

Little Brother, Big Sister – Love in the Studio

Sibling displays of affection can feel as they are in short supply some days but this little brother and big sister got on famously in the studio with lots of cuddles and giggles to go around.

Gift Voucher Photography in East Grinstead

Do you know what is the most common thing people say to me on entering our studio? "I hate having my picture taken" or "Having my picture taken makes me nervous". This doesn't tend to come from our teenage generation as they seem to have all grown up being comfortable in front of a camera - you only have to look at Facebook and the ubiquitous selfie to gather that - but anyone older than that more often than not harbours qualms about getting in front of the camera.

Family Portrait – the Best Christmas Present

By |2016-11-13T13:48:24+00:00January 24th, 2014|Categories: Latest, Portraiture|Tags: , , , |

I've been lucky enough to see this family quite a few times this year.  First there was a newborn shoot with 'Mummy's Best Present' (and I'm absolutely sure that she is), then a family shoot with older siblings.  Then spread throughout the year, there have been two more sittings with baby Ana for her Joey Club year of photography then this last Christmas themed shoot, designed to provide great presents for family members. I've said it before and no doubt

Family Photography – A Place in Your History

By |2016-11-13T13:48:34+00:00November 15th, 2013|Categories: Latest, Portraiture|Tags: , , , |

My mum bought some newly discovered portraits of her parents and grandparents over when she came to visit the other day.  I hadn't ever seen pictures of that side of the family and even Mum had only seen one or two of them before but they had turned up when my Aunt had been doing research into her family tree. They were fascinating to see obviously on a personal level but photographically, I was struck by the simplicity of the poses and the beauty of the lighting.

Grandparents and Grandchildren in the Studio

This lovely couple received one of our studio gift certificates as a present for their golden wedding anniversary from their daughter and son in law.  They knew how much they wanted to capture some images together with their grandchildren as they have always been very close.

Big Brothers & Little Sisters

This family have been coming to the studio for photographs since the big brother in the picture was just a tiny little 3 month old and it has been my pleasure to see him grown and also to meet his little sister.  The last time she came to the studio, she was just a few weeks old and her big brother wasn't there so I was thrilled when they both came along to the latest session.
