70th birthday photo shoot

70th birthday celebrations

This weekend we travelled to Holybourne near Alton to photograph a 70th birthday party. We photographed Kellie-Jayne and Matt’s wedding about 13 years ago and have remained friends ever since. Today was Matt’s mummy birthday and they had booked a wonderful afternoon tea at the Ritz but sadly that was not allowed because of the pandemic.

We know Matt, Kj and all of their lovely family too including most of the young children, We have also worked for Matt’s brother Adam and Kelly several times so good to catch up with them too.

So instead Kj and Matt threw a lovely afternoon tea at their beautiful home for close family and of course this meant the children could also come 😘

We arrived before most guests and grabbed a few candid shots which was the brief, then a few more as people arrived and then onto some groups out in the local fields.

Lots of beautiful photos with an absolutely beautiful family and what a perfect way to spend a Sunday.

All in all a perfect way to mark a very special ladies, special birthday.

COVID RESTRICTIONS and what they mean…..

Sue and I are so pleased to be working again. But we are taking nothing for granted. Our work practice will be a little different but we are still the same fun loving photographers.

We have new PPE stations with hand sanitiser and anti bac hand wash in the bathroom too. We also have gloves and masks for us to wear and for children we will wear our super snazzy super heroes masks so you can rest assured we have your best interests at heart.

The location portraits

We photograph lots of families at our preferred location here near our studio but like with this shoot we also head elsewhere for a little extra.

How much does it cost?

We offer a couple of options with our family portraits. Our regular portraits cost £50 to book and £150 for a disk of everything. This can be inside or out at our location. We can travel further afield and that may cost a little more. For families over 8 its a little more but this is all available on our portrait page.

So you can have a lovely selection of photos either inside or out for only £200 

The photos are high resolution and can be supplied either by digital download, a DVD disk or a USB stick. You can then print and share your photos as often as you like. We do of course offer a full printing, framing and canvas service too.
