This morning we photographed a couple of passports and a CV shoot in-between editing.  We do quite a few CV and work related shoots and they can generally be fitted in without too much notice.

CV shoots and work related shoots like this cost £50 and include a selection of edited photos supplied on a disk to take away with you.

Mini shoot with Laura and Jamie

On Saturday we did a few of our Mini shoots and one was with Laura and Jamie who’s wedding we photographed back in 2007 which seems like an age ago now but since we have been blogging back since 2006 I will pop a link below.  As with many of our  lovely clients we have remained friends with Laura and Jamie and we keep in touch on Facebook as well as seeing each other around Southampton and we have also photographed the girls passports.

Laura contacted me a couple weeks ago and booked in one of our awesome mini shoots which give you a disk of photos or a framed photo for only £100 and when we say a disk of photos we mean just that not a handful of average photos but around 40 amazing photos just like these below. You can check out the details of our shoot by clicking the special offers link below.

Laura and Jamie came along with their 2 beautiful daughters straight from ballet and we had the most amazing shoot with them, the girls were so much fun i was almost in tears playing with them.  I got a message from Laura later that day saying the girls loved it and wanted to know when they were coming back 🙂  that made my evening.

Sue and I photograph hundreds of portraits every year and I am very proud to say we always get the results we want, we have very much an unhurried approach to our studio work, we often sit down for a coffee with our clients before the shoot and let the kids play on the background with out toys, this make the parents relaxed and the children comfortable and it gives us cracking smiley photos. The difference between us and a high street studio with a strict time limit is immeasurable because unlike them we never rush a shoot. We believe if people are comfortable and happy in our studio then they will come back again and again and its proved to work 🙂

It also helps that we both LOVE what we do………..

We are running some very special portrait offers at the moment so if your looking for photos of yourself or your  a couple or a family please take a look because I am sure you will find something that will interest you

macro workshop with Veronica

Today we had our second “getting to know your camera” workshop of this week with Veronica who we met at a corporate shoot earlier this month and she was very keen to learn more about closeup and macro photography which is quite a specialised subject but can be very rewarding so after a few emails and chats we decided the best place for her day was the New Forest Wildlife Park and Butterfly  enclosure.

We started our day as we normally do with a couple of hours in the studio to go over all the camera settings needed which today would be mostly aperture priority because it was important for us to loose the background in our photos as well as to control the depth of field.  We went over the settings and we setup Veronica’s D600 Nikon camera and she borrowed our 100mm Nikon 2.8 macro lens which is an idea lens and would give Veronica a great idea if she loved it enough to buy it.

We then headed off to the New Forest Wildlife Park and started with lunch and a coffee 🙂 always important !  then we started in the Butterfly house and using a monopod (single leg tripod) we got to work photographing some beautiful butterflies for a couple of hours. There were hundreds flying around and with so many to choose from Veronica was quite excited.

We then headed out site to photograph the mice which were cute and then a few of the bigger animals which were ideal to show Veronica how to photograph through cages without them showing in the photos.  All of these photos were shot though wire or thick glass except the butterflies.

Macro photography:   Equipment needed.  SLR with macro lens or a good quality bridge camera with macro feature plus a tripod or monopod.

We hope that you enjoy these photographs from this workshop, we are very pleased with them and we feel they show off using your cameras AV mode very well.

8 Month old Bouncing Baby Nathan

This weekend we got to meet Nathan and his Mummy and Daddy for his first ever photo shoot.  As always we checked which were the most important photos so that we could start with them and we decided to start with a few of Nathan alone and after a while we brought Mum and Dad in too.

I absolutely love the photos of Nathan in the first few playing with his little toes but I also love his shoes in the last few, so cute 🙂   We had a lovely shoot and have a gorgeous selection of photos of Nathan as well as will Mummy and Daddy.

Sue and I photograph hundreds of portraits every year and I am very proud to say we always get the results we want, we have very much an unhurried approach to our studio work, we often sit down for a coffee with our clients before the shoot and let the kids play on the background with out toys, this make the parents relaxed and the children comfortable and it gives us cracking smiley photos.

7 day on twins at home Maggie and Dylan

On wednesday Sue and I travelled to Byfleet in surrey to meet 7 day old twins Maggie and Dylan and I am pleased to say they were both just perfect. A few years ago at a wedding in London we met our friends Carrie and Dan who contacted me to say their friend’s Dan and Niki had just had twins and purchased our shoot at home package for them as a gift.  We arranged to go up as the twins reached 7 days old almost to the hour 🙂

After a little juggling with coffee tables etc we managed to setup in the lounge using our backdrops and props as well as our Italian Lighting system and this makes it as good as our studio setup as you will see from the photos.

Maggie and Dylan were both just perfect and we had a ab shoot starting with the blue and pink outfits then moving onto the neutral which Im love then finishing with the hungry caterpillar 🙂  all x 2 of course.

Twins are always more difficult to photograph so young but the extra effort paid off big time as I am sure you will agree.

Here are a few photos from this wonderful Newborn-shoot I hope you enjoy and love them as much as we do and look forward to your comments,
