I recently experienced one of our beautiful clients calling  me to say there were weird marks over her photos. It was framed series of 9 images and the frame was one of our usual black box frame and the photos were set back (so no matt board). It sounded very unusual and I asked her to bring them in so I could see. We studied this together and then she thought she was going crazy because she could not see the same marks, Finally we noticed them , they were not on the prints at all but they were on the inside of the glass. To cut a long story short they were hung in area where the down light above was incredibly hot ...

Rachel and I were arguing over who Sam loved most between the two of us, and while he didn't give us an answer he was holding my hand at the time, so I'm pretty sure it's obvious who he is best buddies with! I think Sam's mum and dad were a little surprised to see how many awesome shots our photographer captured of him at his family shoot, along with his beautiful baby sister Emma, but to me it looked as though butter could not melt in his mouth!  (There was a slightly different version of the story that his mum filled on). What we love best is when our clients are absolutely and positively wowed by our images - even ...

So we thought it would be brilliant to capture a four generation photo' explains Jenny. Jen goes on to tell us what she loves about being a parent, ' EVERYTHING! It's an amazing transition, I wonder what I did before with all of my spare time?? I have no idea. I love watching ...
