zaney Youtube’r Joe comes for a shoot

Last week I had a message from a seemingly “normal” lad looking for a portrait shoot as a gift for his Nan, How lovely and of course we were delighted. Joe turned up in a very smart suit with a backpack with a cricket bat poking out the top riding a bicycle 🙂

After a few “nan” shots Joe asked if you could have some fun with some props. Ha! things changed dramatically and we had a seriously fun shoot using things ranging from the cricket bat through to a saucepan.

Jo explained that he has a Youtube Channel and wanted to use some photos there, I guess the fun ones haha. He was a modern day Jim Carey and so much fun.

We offer great rates and even better for returning clients so why not message me below for details and start your own beautiful family album which you can add to each year and then in years to come you can sit down with the grand children and family and look back through the years.  Our studio is a professional studio with air conditioning, private parking and changing and bathroom facilities,  its not our home but we like to make it yours during your shoot.

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 our 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

Dave, Victoria and the children

Last week we had another visit from our ex-employee and all round good egg Dave 🙂 as always it was a joy to catch up and we had a laugh. The main idea was to get shots of Brodie as he grown up but we obviously took lots of the whole family too including his big sister.

It was a fairly typical shoot for us, we start with the important shots and work through until the little ones get tired. Awesome morning and lovely to catch up guys.

Corporate photography by Julian Porter

A few weeks ago we were contacted by B&Q and asked to go to Hedge End to photograph some staff members with a view to promoting the store relaunch and we were of course delighted. We have worked for B&Q in the past and always had an enjoyable time.  We arrived in store and took a selection of exterior photos but as requested we also took our mobile studio along for some staff photos inside which are ideal for website and promotional work just like this one of Linda which was used for the exterior promotions around the store as well as local bus stops 🙂

We offer all sorts of corporate photography from just ÂŁ200 complete with a disk of photos delivered within 48 hours

Our corporate photography rates start from as little as ÂŁ200.00 including images delivered within 48 hours or sooner if needed.

Brompton Barracks with Polly and Jerry

On Saturday, Sue and I headed off from home at 8 am in what can only be described as shocking weather, sleet, snow, and rain all the way up the M3 and M25 but even that could not dampen our spirits or our plans for a great day with Polly and Jerry at the wonderful Brompton Barracks officers mess.  We arrived in Chatham in Kent just after 10 am and familiarised ourselves with Brompton and the local Garrison church before heading off to find breakfast. We found a local cafe less than a mile from the church and ordered a coffee and breakfast, The staff were amazing and invited us to hang around in the warm whilst we waited for our start time of 12:30 so we did just that.  Good job really because it was really cold and snowing on and off until about 11:45.

Just after 12, we headed off to the church to say our “hello’s” and wait for Jerry and the boys to arrive. Because of the bitter cold, Jerry stayed in the pub, who can blame him? 🙂 but once he arrived at about 1:30 there was a flurry of activity and Sue and I had a blast photographing people arrive, It only takes a hearty “good afternoon” to make people realise that we are fun and bring on the lovely smiles, these moments make for beautiful photographs. Polly wanted these arrival shots rather than preparations today and Sue and I pride ourselves in our flexibility so were happy to swap things around.

Shortly afterwards Polly arrived looking amazing, quickly into the warm church and the waiting guests and family. A beautiful ceremony with a few lovely tweaks, the Canon got everyone to look around for a photo half way through, which was a nice touch. Afterwards, we all spilt out into the church yard for warmed Pimms and hot chocolate, another nice touch.

After a few group photos, we headed off to the lovely Brompton Barracks for the reception and spent a couple of hours enjoying the Royal Engineers hospitality and capturing beautiful relaxed photos.  A little later in for dinner and speeches including a surprise one from Polly. Then the cake cutting which was a lot of fun and then dancing. 180 people on and around the dancefloor was an epic sight.

After the first dance, Sue and I headed home, arriving 16 hours after we left 🙂

Such an amazing and well organised day, beautiful church, venue and people and an absolute joy to photograph. Thank you guys it was amazing X

10 day old Sasha

Last week we had a visit from thro gorgeous little 10-day old bundle Sasha who really was a cutie. We know Sasha’s mummy from our running club so were delighted to be able to photograph her.

Sasha was just the perfect baby, she arrived, drank her milk and slept 🙂 we managed 3 or 4 outfit changes and lots of props before she started to get restless but that was just perfect.

We have a few more babies this month and look forward to them a lot 🙂

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,
