New Year, New Start, New Approach

2011 will see us enter our 9th year of trading!  I find it hard to believe that it has been 9 years already.  I have been involved in the industry for a lot longer than that, 15 years actually (my goodness that make me sound old) but I did start out young, in fact photography is all I have ever done (or wanted to do for that matter!)

New Year often brings a time of reflection, of planning, setting goals and re assessing life.  This year our reflection process started a few months ago, we were planning big things and these plans are now being put in place

The first part was our lovely new website that you are looking at, we are still regularly adding to it so enjoy browsing all the images in the galleries.  And the second is……we are on the move! 

From 5th January 2010 we are now based from home.  My lovely husband is putting the last coat of paint on our new meeting room and soon we will be getting the frames hung and the cushions plumped ready to meet some new and exciting clients (as well as welcoming back familiar faces).

Whilst we are no longer have a studio on site we do still have access to our studio space so are still able to offer the studio portraiture that we are known for.  However we are very excited to now be available for portraiture on location.  We love working with natural light are really looking forward to seeing what we can create.

Our regular clients will know that 2010 saw big changes for us with the addition of Jenny’s Daughter Orlaith in February. I was blessed with becoming a Mummy for the second time late in 2009 with Daniel joining big sister Grace. Being working Mums is hard, we are very lucky to do a job that we absolutely love but it can sometimes be difficult to find a good work life balance, especially with three small children between us. 

We are hoping that these changes will allow us to have the best of both worlds; we will be able to continue to offer the same excellent customer service and beautiful photography that we are known for but also have more time for our children too. 

We are changing with the times, opening ourselves up to new experiences and pushing our photography to new levels.  We are excited about the opportunities that this move will lead to,  and to sharing them with you on this blog.

So bring on 2011, we hope it is a great year for us all. 

Happy New Year

Sarah & Jenny
