For those of you that follow my work *bows and says thank you* you may be aware of my new studio. I'm very excited to be doing this, a special haven to work from. All the comforts for myself and my clients (yes, I do like the idea of a reclining sofa and sipping Nspresso coffee with my laptop).
I officially open my doors to the public on Saturday 30th April 2016, to say I'm mega excited is an understatement. Quite frankly, I'm so excited, I can barely find the words!
My doors are open to everybody - from clients for weddings, to newborns and families, to fellow photographers; life, as they say, is for living and loving and doing what absolutely makes you shine brightly.
Predominately set up to cater for newborn photography, which, I've been lucky enough to be able to invest in the correct training - there are lots of do's and don'ts around safety of your little bundle; I have been trained by one of the most talented Newborn photographers - Shellie Wall is amazing and I'm pleased to call her my mentor and friend, her work is amazing.
Needless to say, this is a new genre of photography for me and as such my pricing plan will reflect this. Just while I collect a portfolio and work through all of my props (I have stacks!) - so if you're lucky enough to be a new mamma, or one that's due anytime soon - you're in luck. This does not take away from the gorgeous props I have invested in, no expense spared is the name of the game and it helps that I love all the bits and pieces so much and can see them so clearly on a sleeping (or not) bundle (helps that I'm female perhaps, I'm not sure, but I do hold up all my outfits and smile broadly!).
When you hand your new bundle over, rest assured that having had three babies, I work with you all (Mum, Dad and Baby) and make sure that everything is relaxed, warm and friendly. I even provide lunch, nappy bags, nappies, nipple cream (yes I still remember the '10 second rule') and as much liquid refreshments as required. That's not to say that I won't need your help, I will, and plenty of it. Your bundle has known only you Mummy for the whole time, rest assured there is no rush to feed or soothe your baby, you take as much time as you need to do what makes you both happy. Even more importantly, everything is done safely and no stress is every placed on your baby - not all babies go into all the poses. Your little bundle will be treated and assessed on an individual basis.
So if you're free, stop by and say Hi; my door will be open from 9am - 5pm with plenty of coffee, tea and soft drinks. Not forgetting the cake and biscuits. My door is always open to feeding Mums if I don't have a client - stop by, put your feet up, have a natter and a cuppa; would be my absolute pleasure to meet with you both (or all!) and absolutely no pressure for anything else other than putting your feet up (remember that reclining sofa?) relaxing and connecting with your baby.
It's the least I can do.
**Also, parking is available all day long at no cost. Worst case, I'm a 1 min walk from the main car park. There are also lots of other businesses too you can browse in, and if you really fancy, make a day of it!**
Look forward to meeting you.
