I recently posted about another shoot with my portable studio set up. Here are a few from that session:
Today I have received a number of great reviews on my facebook business page as I have been busy recently with my new studio. It is great to recieve these reviews and I am so grateful for those who have taken their time to review my work. Here are some example of the reviews:
My sample portfolio wedding album came and I am so happy with it. The album is really nice and chunky and the pages are really thick meaning it will last forever. The quality of print is great and it has printed with everything exactly how I made it. The album also comes in its own bag and then in a protective box. The whole album looks very professional and it is just what I wanted. I ordered the leather cover as, well I like leather covers really but also I think it will be popular with couples too. Here are some pictures of the album, but they really don’t do it justice!
After a lot of shopping around, I chose sim imaging to use as my regular album supplier. Sim imaging are really great for allowing you to completely customise your products and make them completely unique, which I feel is so important when creating different wedding albums, as each wedding and each client is different.
I now am able to let couple choose exactly how they would like their album, not only that, it allows me to be creative too. Sim imaging has software that you can download on your computer which it essentially a completely blank canvas, allowing me to be as creative as I want to be.
However this will still be to what the client has chosen, although I will the one designing and making the album, sim imaging lets you customise every part of the album and also lets you order duplicate smaller albums for other family members.
Overall I am so happy with my sample album, I already have clients that have enquired about albums so I am looking for to showing it off and getting some orders in.
Today I had my first mobile studio service! I had a booking for a first birthday cake smash with Mirabelle. The shoot went really well and I am really happy with the images. By posting them on social media I now have another booking for my portable studio for the following Saturday!

Today I sat at my desk with every intention of organising myself for everything that has to be done over the coming week with ordering my book and organising prints for exhibition. None of that went to plan.. I got carried away updating my website, which then took all day… Ooops!
However, It did need doing! I have had an incomplete about me page for about 6 months now so am glad I finally got that completed even though I hate writing about myself. I think it’s about up to date now, however, I will have some more work to do on it once I receive my wedding album in order to try and promote them.
Although it’s not what I had planned for today, still a productive day!

For awhile now I have been getting interests for baby shoots in a studio. I have for a while now wanted to move my business forward to offer studio portraits as well as the outdoor shoots I do. So tonight I took that step and ordered several backdrops for some upcoming shoots I have booked in.
These are the backdrops and floor I ordered!
Last week we had an interesting talk from Laura Bird, Laura is so good at making things easy to understand and the standard that is expected in the working world once we leave university. The first thing I thought when hearing about this talk was.. ‘when was the last time I even looked at my CV let alone update it!’. We were acked to bring in a copy og our CV so i spent the night before adding some bits on but also getting rid of any old errelvant jobs to make it more photography focused.
The talk was really helpful, but not only that it also highlighted to me how important it is to keep my CV not only updated but in relvance to the job that I am applying to.
