New Product Alert! – Funky Wall Art

I’m excited to show you all my latest wall art product.  It’s a fab and funky new way to display your photos.  They come in various sizes and you can have whatever you want from single images to text and much much more.

What is it?

This particular one is a series of images adhered to solid wood structures and united on a larger background which produces a hanging three-dimensional effect.

Do they come in different shapes and sizes?

Yes, there are many to choose from and can be personalised to suit any room in your house.

Are they expensive?

They are affordable and vary in price, there is something for everyone.

Focus on Imaging@ Birmingham NEC – WOW

I am just back from Focus in Imaging which is held yearly at Birmingham NEC and I’m whacked!

I walked for miles and still got lost every time I tried to find the exit even on day 3.

So what’s new for this year I hear you say?  Well……I will be supplying new and funky fabulous wall art.  There will be new albums offered for my weddings which I know your gonna love and I’m just so excited I wanted to share it with you all.  I also joined the MPA (Master Photographers Association) basically the MPA is the premier professional organisation for Wedding, Portrait and Commercial Master Photographers. It’s going to be hard work I’m sure but well worth it in the end.

Oooooh and watch out for a competition coming soon to celebrate the launch of my new kids website 😉

New Props

If there is anything I love about photographing children it’s all the fun and funky props that I’m forever searching for.  However, I discovered I spent a small fortune buying props!!!!    I like to make sure that every session doesn’t look the same and that I can offer my clients something that nobody else has.  I know it’s not always possible but I DO try.  I’ve seen me drag my mum to car boot sales, hobbey craft shops and thrift shops lol in the search for that treasure prop.  I bought two knitting books the other day determined to knit these cute little pants.  After spending a whole day, knitting and unknitting and knitting and unknitting I gave up, popper the needles and wool in a bag along with the book and gave it to my Granny.  I’m determined to try it again but I so desperealtely want these little pants for my next baby session.

Anyway just wanted to share a few of my recent props with you all.

Wedding Albums

Goodness it’s been a wee while since I did a blog post but I’ve been so busy with shoots and editing that I’ve not had time to upload anything.  I just wanted to tell you all about a new album I can offer.  It’s a gorgeous retro/vintage style that is so pretty that you wouldn’t want to ever hide it away.  It’s fully digital and they come in various different styles and sizes.  This one below is one of my personal favourites and I cant wait to getting round to designing one.

I’m still offering the gorgeous Queensberry Albums that are hand made in New Zealand but how could one not resist adding these to my album collection!!

I have loads of new pics to post when I get round to it and a wedding this Saturday so fingers crossed that it doesn’t rain.

Knitting = Photography Props

Ok, so anyone that knows me knows I will try anything to make my pictures look better.  I’ve tried hairbows – which I can make okaish, Tutu’s are down to a tee and knitting, which has taken more than one attempt *sigh*!!!!   I’ve downloaded many patterns, attempted many a hat and given up, but thanks to my mother-in-law for explaining quite a simple pattern I have finally finished my first EVER decent project at the ripe old age of 35!  Actually that is a wee lie because I think I made willie warmers in my teenage years (blue if I remember correctly).  I’m soooooo excited I could crush a grape  lol.

This has taken me at least 4 attempts.  The second time the wool was in a knot and my lovely mother-in-law sorted it for me and helped me on my way.  Then I messed it up and finished the tail wrong so had to start again.  I think this happened a couple more times and I thought “one more go and that’s it” I was gonna give up if it didn’t work.  However, I have to admit that I DID NOT GIVE UP!  It’s not perfect and I can only get better the more I try and my intention would be to sell them in colours of your choice but I’ll let you know when I’m up to scratch and get the seal of approval from the Mother-in-law (who has a name I’ll have you know) Hazel as it is!!!!!! My mum is also a brill knitter so I’m convincing her to knit some too!

My model is the lovely Annabel who posed ever so well 🙂

For anyone looking for cool colours of wool/yarn then you need to check out http://www.cucumberpatch.co.uk/ and are very quick with their delivery.

New Photography Products & Templates

As much as I hate having a cold and lack of energy to do anything it’s been a blessing in disguise because, my lack of energy has meant that I have been glued to my computer and trying to come up with some new designs for Coffee Table Books and Wall Art.  For those of you who are expecting your first newborn and decorating a nursery but can’t quite decide what to put on the walls – look no further!!  Why not go for gorgeous pictures of your “lil” one with their initials.  Better still, tell me your nursery colour scheme and I will design it to suit at no extra charge rather than the templates already designed.  This way you can be guaranteed that no one else will have the same art on their walls.

These are not only available for newborns, – you may be re-decorating your little girl or boys bedroom and want some updated themed images with a new colour scheme.  The options are endless and I’m always happy to work with you to see what it is you want.

They are so adorable NOT to have 😉

I have more Coffee Table Templates coming soon but here is the newest design.

The choice is endless and that’s what I want to bring you – something a little different.
