12 Days young; India Tiger-Lily

At just 12 days young, India Tiger-lily was a dream to photograph.  Mum and Dad, Sarah & Matt, brought some lovely characterful hats with them to the session, but also made use of our timeless mohair collection as pictured above.

Saying goodbye to 2016

Well folks it won't be long until the new year is here and I really have loved 2016 in the studio, in that it has given me the opportunity to meet and work with some awesome new families.

As ever, we have seen our share of gorgeous babies and families, our success for our clients in the Baby of the Month competition has left us feeling very proud, happy and hopeful that Jack (featured below) or Archie (top) go on to win Baby of the Year.

Location Family Portrait in Wakefield, West Yorkshire

Family portraits are something I specialise in, when it is something so important as a portrait that will be hanging on your living room wall for many years I take my work very seriously.  I aim to make sure that you get the very best I can give in both quality of work and in terms of service.
These retro style portraits were taken locally, (for photographer info, they were taken with a Canon 5D MK2 with a 24-105 f4 lens and post processed in lightroom, then styled with Florabella actions).  I had had a lovely relaxed walk through Newmillerdam with Emma, Darren, Jacob and the dogs, Kiki and Diesel, I must admit it was all chat with Emma and I on the way in, with Darren walking on ahead controlling their fabulous hounds.  Such well behaved dogs and so beautiful.  Jacob seemed oblivious to the camera and me and just enjoyed a lovely sunny day out with mummy and daddy.

Family Portrait Wakefield

I usually get to take my portraits in my studio, it's a fabulous place with lots of space for you to lounge in and for me to work freely.  The great thing is, it's also a private session, not like having your portraits taken in a shopping centre or inside a department store.  We offer real custom portraiture and our studio is boutique; you've heard of a "boutique" right?  Generally we know a boutique as a dress shop where you purchase great clothes that are not mass produced, are limited in supply and you have a fabulous customer experience.   Boutique Hotels have a similar idea where the service is premium, there aren't a massive amount of rooms and they are all individually designed with your comfort in mind and you can pick something really special to suit your taste.  Our studio is a boutique studio, offering great customer service, lots of individually designed products from framed wall portraits through to custom designed albums.  We'll look after you...promise  :-)

As a part of our customer experience we are now offering location portrait sessions too.    Sessions are from £95 and can take place at a local beauty spot or your own home if you have grounds large enough.   The session fee does not include any images.  These are available framed from £75.   The best thing is ...I guarantee you will love your photographs or I will give you your money back!

Update for 2012

There are no photographs on this post; what a let down .....I've been a little inactive for a while, but now that the new year is here I have been feverishly working away on my website.  Very much a time for a revamp as the studio in Ryhill has gone from strength to strength.

2012 looks set to be a very interesting year.  I have been chosen by Barrett & Coe as one of their premium photographic studios.  The top 60 studios in the UK have been networked together to offer family portrait sessions and accept portrait vouchers from Activity Superstore and the National Childbirth Trust amongst others.  The vouchers will be sold in premium outlets such as Debenhams, Argos and W H Smith to mention just a few.

My Cherubs customers have been very loyal and it has been lovely to see mums returning with new babies to take up the offer again as the little baby they brought to me now has a sibling.

Keep a lookout on the blog as this is the place where I will be showing my more recent work, the website will be just an important source of information in future.  For those who are on facebook, I will still continue for the time being to put purchased portraits on my business page free of charge for you to enjoy and share with friends.  Please remember to keep my logo intact, anyone who knows me knows I am a bit OCD about my copyright.
