Cakey baby photoshoot

I call these cake smash photoshoots, but some call them cakey baby, either way there a great fun way to celebrate your young ones birthday. There is no age limit for these, meaning older children can have them.

The cakes are custom made and can be any colour and allergies are catered for. There will be some new cake shapes available too. I had a chat with my cake maker and agreed to include more styles, like love heart shaped etc. A cake shoot starts from £65 and for that you get the shoot, cake and a 10×8 print. You will view your images in a private online gallery, with your own custom password.

I offer these in your own home or in a studio I use in Harworth. The price will only be more if you live out of area from DN11. If you have any questions please do get in touch.


Learn Photography – One on One or group

Teaching photography skills has been a thought for some time. This year I will look at either a photography class, with a group of upto 5 or 6, keeping numbers low so I can work with everyone.

Or even 1 to 1 teaching. Maybe your struggling to get sharp images, the wrong colour and you have no idea what the other settings on your camera do. Don’t shoot in Auto forever and explore how creative you can be once you use the camera in differently and take control over what it does.

Yes, some settings allow for speed of use and can lead to great images, but for the most part its a great feeling to shoot fully manual and be in charge of every setting. I can help you see what you should see in a scene before taking a shot. Things to avoid, scene set up etc. For those with a basic skill already but want to learn how to use Off Camera Flash or studio flash I can look at that too, which is alot different to photography without flash, well in most cases. There are times when you can combine ambient light and flash to get something extra special. And in situations you may never have thought we use flash.

If this is of interest send me an email, ask questions. Its still in the thought stage so far, but 1 and 1 could be arrange now.



Birthday Photoshoots – Instudio

This time it was Poppy. Ive photographed the family for some years now and Ive seen these kids grow up. Which means they relax when come to the studio.

This shoot was 11 girls, although 9 was the main number for most of the shots. I have a large studio backdrop, around 10ft wide which is ideal for this. I know mobile photographers and smaller home studios only have 6ft. Although when I had a home studio I fit the 10ft one in.

We start with everyone together, they get to relax and get into it quicker, not that they needed time. They were on the ball. I like to mix the images so theres a wide choice for later. As well as fun shots, I always like to get a Fine Art style portrait. These shots are classic and beautiful.

After the shoot there are options to print images, (once edited) from basic prints, to Canvas Art, Photobooks -Budget & Premium, frames etc.

So firstly here are the highlights, then below that a fine art image.

Thanks for reading.
