Another little trip down memory lane …

Yes, I’ve been delving into those archives of mine again! 

These gorgeous sisters have been in for regular photo sessions since they were babies – in fact, six photoshoots in four years! Now that’s amazing! A big thank you to their lovely family for that 🙂

We first met at the beginning of 2010, when I took the baby shots of the first-born:

She’d grown a bit the next time she came along, in April 2011, with her little baby baby sister in tow:

Awww, cute eh! The next visit was later that year …

Even a few months make a difference.

Oh, but at their next photoshoot, a year later, they were no longer babies …. two charming little girls turned up, looking brilliant in yellow, with matching sunny smiles 🙂

Little Stars back again a few months later …

And at their latest shoot, just a month or so ago.

Yay! Old hands at this posing business now!

They are brilliant girls, lots of fun and giggles – and don’t they always look so immaculate! 

Hope you’ve enjoyed this little visit down memory lane.

More family memories coming soon 🙂

 

Whoosh!!! Was that September flying by?

Is it just me or has September disappeared in the blink of an eye?  One minute it was August and the next it’s virtually October!! 

Well the month has been amazingly hectic, mainly with studio shoots, so I guess that’s made the time whizz by; I’ve also gotten a whole lot of new software with loads of rather cool effects, which I have been experimenting with to my heart’s delight to see which ones really bring about the wow factor to my pictures. This has been great fun and you seem to be loving them so far (thank goodness!)  Even though I’ve spent a fair few hours at the computer tweaking and seeing what works well and what doesn’t, now I think I have it sussed and so it’s been well worth it.  Art of course is very subjective and I know that some of the effects won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, so, as many of you will know, I always include your pictures in normal colour in your portfolios as well as any artistic versions so you can compare and decide which you like best 🙂

As well as getting up and running on the new software, I have found some great new products to add to the wall display range, including acrylic glass and brushed aluminium items, which can also be CIRCULAR – thought that would “ring” (ouch, excuse the pun!!) the changes a bit.  Once the samples arrive I’ll post some pictures of them to see what you think.

Now with bookings coming in thick and fast for the next few months before Christmas, the new software will (hopefully!) speed up my workflow considerably (now I’ve got to grips with it) which is especially important at this time of year when we are all working towards that same deadline which comes round oh so quick! I expect I don’t need to point that out 😉

Anyway, here’s some of my recent studio pics with the new artistic effects I mentioned….and these will be alongside the normal colour, as well as black and white, sepia fades and more – something for everyone, I hope!
