Teenage Photo Shoot At Home

School life for teenagers is stressful; the demands placed upon them for good exam results takes their toll.  So, where possible it's good to do something special for them from time to time.

A few weeks back I offered Victoria the opportunity to have some friends over for a photo-shoot. This is normally a service we offer on location either in a park or at clients home. We also cover commercial jobs in larger premises, most of the time we cannot show these images for various reasons, and whilst I did not arrange this shoot for personal gain, the parents of Victoria’s friends very kindly agreed that I could share some of  the images with you so you can see what we get up to.

We initially set up a Colourama Larkspur paper background. On the floor we placed a clear acrylic sheet that acts as a mirror to give a bit more shape to the image. 


We then made sure we had a good range of group shots and individuals portraits too. It's important to 'mix it up' and have a variety of shots to keep the Mums and Dads happy.



Afterwards with Halloween almost upon us we threw up a green screen background to give them something to put up on their social media pages nearer the time.  

To give you some idea of how we work in small locations we have a couple of shots that Michelle took on her phone. 

Then a bit of retail therapy folowed by visit to KFC - I must stress that we do not normally offer the last two services with photo shoots to clients. :)

Sarah & Darrens Wedding Day - Bay Point, Sandwich

The Bay Point Sports Club at Sandwich is a great place to hold your wedding ceremony; it boasts a lovely pergola for those summery days, a wide expanse of grass for those all important photographs, and plenty of room indoors for your wedding breakfast.

We arrived early to capture a few images of the venue and all the little bits and pieces that help to tell a story when it comes to creating a printed album.  Couples often find the day passes so quickly that they miss the little touches that have been added by family and friends, the things that make a wedding unique, like the table decorations, so it’s nice to get a visual record wherever possible.

Darren and his groomsmen also arrived nice and early, which always makes our job easier as we can spend a little more time with the boys before the ceremony.  A final read through of the speeches and we were good to go.


Sarah arrived shortly afterwards, the willow tree within the grounds made a lovely background that was just crying out to be used, and as it was nicely hidden away around the corner from the ceremony we did not spoil the bridal parties arrival.


In the past we have come across many ways for the rings to arrive for the ceremony.  Sarah and Darren had opted for a security guard, resplendent in his uniform and super-cool shades...Pretty sure the rings are very safe today.



By now the guests had arrived and taken their places. Entertainment was being provided by one of the younger bridesmaids, and yours truly.


Time for Sarah to make her entrance. 






An exchange of rings, a kiss, and the signing of the register completed the official part of the day.










All that is left is to wish Sarah and Darren all the very best for the future.
