Rates & Packages

I now have put rates up on my website under the investment section. I decided to keep it simple and offer just one package for portraits and one for weddings but of course I can also offer bespoke quotes if required. Each package comes with some prints included and a CD with the same images on. Spring/Summer sessions are still available and wedding packages can still be booked for this summer after June 2010. Just get in touch via my website for information about the dates I have available for both portraits sessions and weddings.



I've also added a section about myself to the website which I've been fretting about doing for months! After taking and editing some photos of myself, I have been nervous about finally releasing them to the website, because of what people would think when they saw them and read the section about myself. I don't want to come across as vain or self centred I just believe that potential clients would prefer to see their photographer and know a little about them before placing a booking. I really hate writing about myself and found this section very difficult. However I decided to explain my background in photography and hope I came across well. 

My contest is still running, exactly one week left until the winner is announced. Chance to win a FREE 2 hour photo session in a location of your choice. Enter via my facebook fan page by commenting on my wall, or commenting on this blog post below. You can also enter by emailing

Back to school!

Last friday was the last day of the easter holidays for my brother and his friend Harry. So we went by train to Chelmsford with my mum and Harry's mum Nicky. Below are a few pictures I took at the station in the morning. By the end of the day we were pretty relieved that next week they are back at school!

Don't forget that my contest is still running. Chance to win a free 2 hour photo session! This can be used to get some new photos of your children, family, a group of friends or just some new photos of yourself! Winner will be picked at random on Sunday 2nd May. Just comment on the post linked above (click here to go straight there), or email me at Good Luck!

New Friends

Lookie at what arrived in the post recently....

I have been lusting after this hunk of glass for a while and I'm so over the moon its here and I'm finally able to use it in future sessions. I also recently purchased a D200 so the two are a perfect match! Now who whats a photo shoot? I'm off out to attack some family and friends with my new additions!

Some old news as well. I finally got my business cards sorted. I used a design by EW Couture found over at PIFphoto and customised it to fit my website and business colours. I love that marketing pack, it helped me to brand my business on the cheap until I can afford to do it properly some day in the future. I got my business cards from MOO, who I also adore for enabling photographers and artists to showcase their work on one side of the card. Its like a mini portfolio of your work. I went for 5 different photographs for now. I'm running out already, everyone seems to love them!

New pricing structures are also underway on my website. So I'll be blogging as soon as that is all finished. I'm also planning on adding a section all about myself, which is a bit scary. So watch this space.

Don't forget.... my contest to win a 2 hour photoshoot is still under way, just email or comment to this post if your interested! You can also enter via my Facebook fan page by liking, commenting or emailing me also. The winner will be announced on May 2nd!

I'm so happy that I can finally see an end the this long wintery tunnel! Spring is nearly here (if we ignore the rain) and so I'm looking forward to getting outside for some photo sessions. I'm holding a contest to get things kick started so make sure you get involved and tell everyone else about it too.

Sessions must take place at a location of your choice within a 30 minute radius to Colchester, Essex. Additional prints/CD's will be available to purchase via your own password protected gallery on my website. Winner will be picked at random.

Good Luck everyone!
