Good tidings and an update!
Firstly I am writing to wish you and your family a very merry Christmas and one heck of a fabulous New year to make up for the lows of 2020!
Moving forward and trying to make the most things, I now have expanded my business to include more portrait and family photography than before, as well as the wedding photography - I have a new studio to go with this too!
(One of this years North Pole Cottage shoots that made great Christmas gifts)
The studio will be my main office and place where I can do indoor photoshoots, meet clients and even do some headshots, product photography and let my 2.5yr old go nuts with his train set while I do some editing - or he may just watch TV as he was doing below while I was busy setting the studio up and moving in equipment and furniture. Outdoor shoots are still on the menu all year round!

I do have in place cleaning regime's for when you visit for before and after to keep me, my family, and you safe and covid free.
Hands free sanitiser, temperature check and face coverings are a must to all that enter (over the minimum required age or with a valid medical reason), and I have put in place a digital covid declaration for you to sign on your phone using your finger that I will send to you on the morning of your visit. I will also be wearing a mask or face shield throughout.
I would urge you and prefer that you download the NHS app to scan my location QR code as well, but I will have a sign in book for those that don't - this is another simple way that you can reduce contact with surfaces and objects. I certainly would like to know if I had been exposed to Covid-19 so that I can keep my loved ones safe, and I'm sure you would too!

Cake smash and splash photoshoots are available as well and can also be gifted to anyone you like. My gift cards are now offered with an easy digital version that can be purchased via my Instagram profile, a past post on my FB page or right here :
The gift cards can also used as gifts for couples who are getting married provided I am of course doing the photography - If you are one of these lucky couples why not ask for these so that you can both put them towards prints, wall art or a wedding album?
Updates to my website are a little behind, but they will all feature there too along with new details about portrait shoots, as soon as I receive and check over some new exciting products that I will be offering.
Lastly news about 2 more International wedding photography awards I picked up this month will be on the way in a later post that I will be excited to share with too!

Have a great Christmas and a wonderful 2021 - I think we deserve it don't you? 🎄
