Busy as ever

I visit my blog every so often but lately I've been so busy it's take a backseat - if you're on facebook you can keep up to date with me there :) Lots of weddings and portrait sessions happening just now - trying to keep on top of it and look after 3 boys! lol x

New products :O)

Well I've been having an overhaul of my price list.. adding a number of items to it - more yet to follow!!  It's a huge process and has caused me a number of headaches - however we're getting there!

Anyway, thought I would share a few new products with you all that will be featuring in new price list!

The latest one arrived this morning - in time for my couple of hours on my stall at a Nappy Networking meeting next week in the Lovat Hotel - 20th May - 10.30 till 12.30!

Anyway here it is - the wonderful Alumini!!!  Prices start at £55 at present for a 10" x 8".

Then there is the Portfolio Box  - Price from £169

A lot more than that - that is just some of the products I do :O) I am currently looking into doing more framed items with a selection of frames. Watch this space!!!

John Denton - Art of Contemporary Wedding

Fredau, a set on Flickr. What can I say - I'm delighted that things are getting busy - so much so that the blog has taken a back seat again - I must ensure it doesn't happen again!!!

I've been doing a lot of portfolio building over the last year to 18 months and that time has come to an end as I've finally launched the business!!! I'm very excited to what life has in store for the future - still a lot to learn but I definitely feel I'm well on my way now!

I've a few weddings booked throughout the year already and I can't wait!

To get it started I took John Denton's Contemporary Wedding course last week in Glasgow - it was a great day of learning - hoping to do even better than before in every way!

Here's some images from the day :-

***** NEW LOGO!!!

Delighted to tell you that I've had a new logo made for the business - Many thanks to Chris Wain from Waingroove Design.

This is the black and white version for you to see :O) I love it!

Can't believe this is my first post since November 2010!!!

What can I say!! I'm really not keeping up to date with everything!!! My blog has been placed on a back burner.. have been extremely busy with getting things ready for launching myself properly in April!!So much still to get in place before then!!! Getting a new logo designed as we speak - it's nearly there just getting a few tweaks next week!

Had my first wedding of the year last week, few images below:-

i will try to keep this up to date a bit better. Have various things on right now, from baby shoots, teenage shoots, birthday parties,weddings and pets!!
