Bespoke Photography Albums - your story book!

In the digital age, print is becoming a luxury item for the discerning customer who still enjoys the feel and touch of an album. I don't ask you to choose between a DVD or album as every album comes with its own set of low resolution images on disk suitable for use on your computer or social media sites so you can enjoy both! A bespoke family photo shoot is an significant investment and you will review a choice of 50-75 images from your session - it may take a while so don't worry I'll put the kettle and provide the nibbles while you relax and choose your favorites.  No doubt you will want to choose some as framed prints or canvases or perhaps a multi-aperture frame of those special images.  However, nothing quite captures the story of your family than an album where you can document all the family in flattering individual and group portraits while mixing into these relaxed, informal shots which capture everyones true personality.

There are some truly beautiful albums for customers wanting the ultimate presentation following a bespoke photo shoot.  The choice and range of styles is incredible and makes it impossible for a photographer to keep every option in stock.  My customers are looking for stylish albums with a contemporary feel that will remain a classic (and classy) choice in years to come.  Like the photographs within, the album does not want to appear dated or unfashionable in the years ahead - these are keepsake albums to be treasured and passed down through the generations.  Your memories of your life's journey are held here and I will ensure you have the products which exceed your expectations.

I have chosen two album suppliers which offer the very best: Loxley and Albums Australia. Each provides a high quality album in a range of styles and materials with choice to satisfy every customer.  Loxley albums are produced in Glasgow and include digitally printed magazine story book albums as well as matted photograph albums.  These are a classic choice and allow for a wide range of layouts. Albums Australia offer a luxurious product reflected in the price.  These albums are hand crafted in Australia and are truly bespoke. Consider a unique fine art album using your own specially chosen photographs printed onto fine art paper with a choice of cover designs, making your album one of a kind. Also available are gorgeous magazine and matted albums and a choice of leather, suede, acrylic covers in modern colour choices.

Whatever your choice, you can be assured of a superb album from the very best suppliers in the industry. Following your photo shoot I will help you select the photographs you love most and which tell your story. I will then use these to design a beautiful album for you. All albums will be boxed on delivery, ready for that thrill when you open it for the first time!!  I guarantee you won't be disappointed and you will have an album you'll keep returning to relive precious moments and share with friends and family.

Share the Love on Valentine's Day: A Joint Promotion with Thanks A Bunch, Faringdon

I've been working with Holly at Thanks A Bunch in Faringdon almost since we moved here to The Vale of White Horse in Oxfordshire 18 months ago. I have done a collection of images for her website as well as promotional images for special occasions - Christmas, weddings and recently Valentine's day.

In the summer Debbie joined Holly and they have expanded their weddings portfolio and we did a bridal shoot at Kingston Bagpuize House. I really love going into their shop in Faringdon - the gorgeous smell or floral blooms hits you as soon as you step through the door.

Now that spring is on its way (well, it was approaching... I had a daffodil almost in flower and then the cold snap arrived!!) and Valentine's day is round the corner it presented a fabulous opportunity to do a promotion together.

Everyone ordering a bouquet of red roses (or equivalent spend) with Thanks A Bunch will receive a voucher for a complimentary photoshoot with me - What a fantastic opportunity to get some great images!!

If you are one of the lucky couples to get engaged on Valentines's Day what better than to celebrate with some romantic photos of just the two of you. A lifestyle photoshoot is all about celebrating your relationship and documenting a moment in time which forms part of the story of your lives together.

Many people wait for their wedding day or a significant date in the calendar to celebrate their love but this doesn't need to be the case - share your love this Valentine's Day with your partner and family and have a bespoke photoshoot to remember how much their love means to you.
