We are back in the swing of things for September, getting ready for our busiest season for family shoots before Christmas. But before that all kicks in, we have had lots of new members in our Artis Baby Club! Its a wonderful way to document your little one grow into a crazy toddler who won’t want to listen to you - which happens in just one year! Here are a few of the new little ones and their families, along with some finished baby club sets that come in a gorgeous little folder. Find out more on our Baby Club page here if your little one needs to start having some professional photos taken: Artis Baby Club.
One of Hannah’s favourite genre’s to shoot is senior sessions. These are more common in North America, but for those who haven’t heard of them they are simply a ‘coming of age’ session for teenagers who are soon to be graduating. Its a real honour to capture their personality as it is now in a senior photo shoot, before they fly the nest. These shoots can be done at local locations, such as Virginia Water or at our Sunninghill Studio.
We are lucky enough to have quite a few International Schools in Berkshire and Surrey whose students go on to use the images from their portrait session as their yearbook picture. Its always fun to help in the selection process as often the ones the teenagers like of themselves are not the same as the parents favourites! I always advice that the yearbook picture should be picked by the teenager and represent how they/their friends see them. Then the parents favourites are the ones that they get to keep - usually as prints and digital files to easily transport around the world.
Here are a few favourites from the last year - one of which won Hannah The MPA South Central Classical Portrait Winner and MPA South Central Studio Portrait Winner 2018. If your teenager is due to graduate and you would like to book a senior session, give us a call on 01344 870033 or contact us via the website.
We've been working hard behind the scenes in the last few months to revamp our studio and start having furniture we LOVE, rather than years of mismatched pieces around the place. So after the help of a fab interior designer, we have starting putting together some bits, and here they are!
Hannah's personal favourite piece is the glittery light in the viewing area (she found that one). My favourite are these awesome bar stools where I can't wait to sit and chat to people.
Phase 2 - New pictures on the walls, new signage outside and much more!
