New Acrylic Gallery Product Spotlight

We’ve just added a new product to our wall art range for our portrait photography services.

This is a unique product that caught our eye and is something very different to what’s currently available in the marketplace.

The overall dimensions of the product in its entirety is 20″x10″, and features three removable 4″x4″ acrylic photo blocks.

The quality, feel and weight of this product is evident as soon as you hold it in your hands – it oozes class.

The biggest selling point though is the three photo blocks themselves… this is the genius of the product; the ability to remove and or switch the three photo blocks over in any of the mounts.

This even allows you to remove them and display them on a nearby shelf, mantelpiece or coffee table temporarily as they are designed to be self-standing when not being housed within the frame structure!

Even better still, there are further options that you could purchase additional photo blocks which mean that you can change any of the photos on display in the future or at any given point!  Cool or what?!

So if you were to return for another photo shoot with your family say the following year, you could purchase a couple of new photo blocks from that session to then replace the originals, or mix them all up… leaving the surplus ones to be displayed as free-standing items in their own right within your home.  You’ll then always have the ability to change your display as you feel from day-to-day and year-to-year.

It’s because of this versatility in addition to its beauty and sheer quality, that we think that this new item is going to be a very popular product with all our clients!

Toddler Portraits

Thought that I’d pop up a post of a recent small portrait session I shot of two young sisters.

Mum had wanted to get some portraits of the two girls together, and so brought them along to the studio here in Carshalton for a session.

As with all things child related, as soon as you start adding multiples of children, the harder the task becomes – trying to get more than one child to engage with the camera at one given point is a tricky thing… I pity those school photographers out there, I’ve no idea how they do it, day in day out – I take my hat off to them!

Anyway, without further ado here’s some of the cute shots from that session.

Location based lifestyle family portraits within Surrey

Well, the summer is now officially here, and the sun should be making more regular appearances for us with any luck from here on… well, that’s the theory anyhow!

With the climate generally now both warmer and dry it’s an ideal opportunity for families with young children to explore lifestyle family portraits outdoors on location.

The difference between an outdoor lifestyle shoot over a studio shoot is quite great, they vary greatly.

There is no right or wrong, it just boils down to preference as to what you might like in regards to photographic style;

• Location Family lifestyle shoots

Generally these are more natural, and feature more engagement either with a task and or other family members.  They’re also more relaxed as you’re not confined to a small area like a studio.

• Studio Family Shoots:

A studio shoot is a bit more formal – everything is more controlled, from the activities/posing through to the environment, lighting and surrounds. As a result you get more consistency through that control, unlike outside shoots where you are exposed to the elements and the location.

Whatever your choice, you’ll end up with lovely results regardless, it’s just about you deciding what you prefer in taste and what fits in better in your living room in regards to where you will be displaying those images.

Please have a look here below at some photos that were captured from a young family location shoot at Box Hill in Dorking, Surrey.

As you will see with the outdoors you can achieve more variation, and a more natural set of results.

6 Month Year Old Studio Portraits

A young little lad called Noah, who we’d photographed as a newborn in the past, came back to the studio here in Carshalton with mum for some portrait shots of him at the 6 months age.

Generally we advise photographing children at the following stages for a good variation and to fully illustrate their journey of growth in their first year;

• Newborn (within the first fortnight of birth)
• 6 Months Old
• 12 Months Old

Noah, was an incredibly cute little fellow, and very photogenic!

We managed to get some lovely portraits of him, both alone, and also some with his mum.

You can check a small selection of these here below.
