With over 54,000 photos estimated to be taken every second around the world, the visual footprint we are creating for ourselves at this moment in time is mind blowing.
There are estimated to be 6.8 billion smart phone users globally, so combining the users with the numbers of images being taken the likelihood is a high proportion of the photos will be taken on a smart phone.
I would love to hear what apps you would recommend for anything photography based – feel free to message below!
As a business owner, we tend to do everything ourselves – the website, HR, sales, marketing, along with provide our service/product! However, we don’t have to be and do everything. Outsourcing the areas of our business that we are not enjoying, not qualified to do, or aren’t very good at is very normal (and important) - take for example, the accounts, the website etc. Assigning tasks to someone else means that you can focus on the things in your business that you enjoy doing.
1. Outsource photography for your business so that you stand out from the competition and are seen as professional
Professional businesses invest in their business and themselves. When a potential customer looks at your website and sees an image that is a stock image, or poor quality, they may assume that the services and products are not that premium brand that you are striving to portray.
2. Outsource photography for your business saves you money
Time is money! When you are spending time trawling through your computer looking for half decent images to use, or attempting to take photographs with the right lighting and set up, that time could be used doing things that bring in more business. Brand photography is an investment upfront, but is well worth it in the long run because you will have a bank of on-brand images to draw from that will last you a year of more of marketing content.
3. Outsource photography for your business saves you time
Have you asked a colleague or friend to take a picture of you doing your job? How much time did you take fixing and editing the images to make them look how you wanted them to be? Or how long did it take your friend to get a photo you liked? Outsourcing your photography to a professional brand photographer will take away all that time you spend trying to get the perfect shot so that you can focus on doing what you love.
5. Outsource photography for your business to show that you are the best at what you do
Having a professional looking brand will give you the edge over your competition, because you are showing your audience why they should buy from you rather than them. You are building trust by using photos that show who you are and why you do what you do. You look professional, reassuring people that they should work with you. You now have more free time to spend doing the things you love and growing your business. You attract your ideal client because your photos are bespoke as they show your personality, your style and everything that is you!
You gain a lot by investing in professional photos for your brand – message me today and lets book in an enquiry call to take a step in the right direction.
Professional development is high on my list of self improvement and providing the very best for my clients. Usually this is in the way of entering national competitions, photographers training courses, residentials, seminars, webinars and such-like. However, another area of importance for me has always been and will always be safety.
My clientele varies from newborn babies that are anything from three days old, through to toddlers, families, pregnant ladies and grandparents. Therefore, I feel that it is an important and essential skill to learn the basics of First Aid - not just for those clients, but also my family, friends and anyone I come into contact with.
At the end of the day, if we are faced with an emergency, accident, a life or death situation, do we know what to do?
I signed up to my local First Aid course, run by Child Matters in Marlow. The course was run by Owner, Claire Street, who is herself a Paediatric Nurse, since 1998.
There was no question that Claire couldn't answer and throughout the whole day kept us all interested with interactive, hands-on training.
We covered many areas including CPR, burns, cuts, bandaging, anaphylactic shock, choking, bleeding and so much more. An interesting thing for me was seeing how things had changed since I last did a course (many years ago) and also learning how to use a defibrillator. We have a number of defibrillators around Marlow, but actually having some hands on experience, could save valuable seconds or minutes in an emergency.
Needless to say, although the course was six hours, the time flew by and I came out feeling more confident in my First Aid knowledge and armed with skills, which hopefully I'll never have to use, that will enable me to potentially save a life.
I would encourage anyone to go on this course, but particularly those with babies and children, carers (whether that's a professional carer or grandparents, family members etc) and anyone who comes into contact with children.

Although I'm known mainly as a baby, family and branding photographer, headshots is also an area of photography that I offer and really enjoy!
Outdoor or studio?
Studio sessions are done in the home studio, with backdrops and off camera lighting, which gives a very corporate, professional look. Alternatively, you may wish to have an outdoor headshot, with soft natural light and beautiful green backgrounds - this gives a more friendly, approachable feel to the picture. Whichever you'd prefer just let me know and we can plan accordingly.
What to wear
Colour is really important, along with pattern - or lack of! Choose an outfit that doesn't distract the eye from your face, so little or no pattern is preferred, solid colours work well, along with colours that you know work well with your skin tone. If you're unsure which colour(s) work well for you, take a look at this website, which has some great information.
As headshots are just that - usually from your torso upwards, it's always best to choose tops with long or 3/4 length sleeves and outfits that are well tailored to your body and not baggy or loose fitting.
What to bring
Apart from an extra tie, sweater or jacket, you'll just need to bring some styling products such as your brush/comb and lip salve/gloss (chapped or sore lips need to be avoided!) - and of course, a relaxed, confident smile!
Preparing for your shoot
Before the shoot there are several things you can do to prepare yourself for the session.
#1 Plan ahead - think about where you are going to use your headshot images and let me know the look and feel that you are after.
#2 Get your outfit ready - try this on a few days before the shoot, make sure there are no gaps in shirts/blouses, they fit well and add an accessory if you feel this compliments the look. Don't leave it until one hour before the shoot, to then find out you don't feel happy with the outfit - feeling stressed or sweaty is not conducive to a good shoot!
#3 Drink lots the days before your shoot - clear bright skin always looks great and it's amazing how drinking lots of water and eating healthily affects your skin.
For March and April (only) I am going to be offering Mummy and Me Photo Shoots. This is a new shoot specifically designed for mums and their kids (from 0+), to capture precious images of whatever age and stage you're at. You may wonder why I’m offering these shoots? Please read on...
More often than not, mums will be the ones behind the camera as their little one grows up, capturing those fun trips out and recording all the ‘firsts’ that need to be documented. But looking through the iphone the pictures will be mainly images of the little one playing, eating, laughing, running – none with mum, or if there are some they are the selfie shots, which taking a good one seems to been a mythical world that only a few know how to do (ideas on a postcard please!!)! But you were there! You wiped those tears and cuddled those fears away, played those games and read that book a thousand times!
So mums, please book yourselves in for a Mummy and Me Photo Shoot – give you and your child something tangible to show your bond, your stage in life, that you were there and you loved every moment! I would love to capture the memories that will last a lifetime, so to book your shoot in please message me today.
If you think this would make a lovely gift for someone then Gift Vouchers can be purchased and delivered in time for Mothers Day (27th March) – just send me a message and I can sort this for you.
1. Choose the right time for them
As a photographer golden hour (1-2 hours before sunset/after sunrise) is always my preference for shooting outdoors, as the light is warm and creeps through the trees to give a beautiful backlit glow. However, this is not always suitable, especially in the middle on summer time, when this time can be between 6/7pm. So book your session when you know your child(ren) will be at their best, so maybe after lunch when they have lots of energy or after dinner time when it will be a treat to be going outdoors instead of having bath time. Tired children seldom want to participate if they are lacking energy, so think about nap times and feeding times.
3. Be patient
Sometimes children take a little while to feel at ease in front of the camera and not adding pressure is crucial to bringing the child around to actually wanting to have their picture taken. Sometimes I start with the parents, or the older siblings, so the younger ones can see it’s nothing to be scared of. By the end of the shoot I normally find the children are directing the shots and telling me what to do! If the children need a break, that’s OK too. I encourage parents to bring snacks, treats as bribery and definitely some water as they usually end up doing lots of running around! So if the children need a snack break we’ll set them up with food and a drink and then I’ll do some parent shots while we wait. Normally when the focus is diverted away from the child they are more than willing to get back involved after snack time!
4. Be prepared
Before the photo shoot I send my clients a Pre-Shoot Guide and this gives all the information in terms of what to wear, what to bring and what to expect at their shoot. Planning your outfits and colour scheme will help you feel comfortable on the day and confident in what you are wearing. Don’t leave it to the day of the shoot to think about this and always bring back up clothes for those unexpected moments! Bringing a few accessories can also be fun, such as a hat, scarf or blaser – just to give some different looks to the pictures. I don’t encourage my clients to bring change of outfits as there are usually no areas to change discreetly and also uses up precious shooting time! Checking the weather too and dress for the temperature and season will also help. Cold or wet children are unlikely to be happy, so just think ahead in terms of your planning.
Above all, have fun and enjoy the session! We are capturing moments and precious memories for you to love and cherish for years to come!

If you have ever had a Resolution that has been broken within a few weeks, you are not alone, I have had many – cutting out chocolate, meat, alcohol and other various aspirations I think on the 31st December that sound like a good idea! But one idea that didn’t seem too far reaching or unachievable was three years ago, almost to the day, when I wrote a very simple Facebook post saying ‘I’m hoping to read a book a month in 2018 – where to start?! Can anyone recommend a good read?’ From this post I was given a number of book recommendations and a couple of people mentioned that they also wanted to do this and the idea formed to create a Book Club, followed by a flurry of several other people asking to join! So within the space of a day Book Club was formed, with a group of lovely ladies.
We were all in the same boat, having never been to a Book Club before and unsure what the set up should be. Having asked around a few experienced Book Clubbers and looking online, we decided to meet on a monthly basis (some Clubs just meet termly) and each month a member of the Club would host, so that it would not be too burdensome on any one person. The host provided wine and dessert and a list of around 5-6 books they would like to read. The group would vote on one book and we would then read for the coming month. I soon found that other people’s tastes in books were very different to mine and this led to a totally new library of books growing on my bookshelf!
January 2018 started with the first meeting and the very important task of naming the Club was decided unanimously as Prosecco and Paperback (P&P)! It was here that book number 1 was chosen and we were off to a good start – A Man Called Ove by Fredrick Backman. We all loved this book and rated it highly and the following month read another brilliant read, Elinor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman – we were off to a good start!
I read books I would never have considered reading, pushing comfort zones, boundaries and challenging my own reading rut that I had found myself in. Many times the Club was very divided in opinion about a book (we each rated the book out of 10 and then produced an average score for each read) and this was so interesting to hear other people’s opinions of how they interpreted a story, or found various characters.
After a few months we were in the swing of it and everyone was loving the social interaction, always allowing time for chatting, sharing and catching up at the start of each meeting.
So next month it is back to me again to choose the book for the group to read (the ‘host’ tends to choose 1-3 books now and decides on the night which one to go for), back on Zoom again, but I know that even when there are many uncertain things happening around us, the friends at P&P are always there to bring a smile to my face, challenge me and encourage me to get my nose into a book each month, to slip into a world of words that will transport me to new and exciting places.
So if you are contemplating a New Years Resolution this coming January may I challenge you to start reading (if you are anything like me, I had not read a book in years since having children!), or better still, start a Book Club - you won't regret it! You don't need many people, you don't need to make it a chore, you don't need to meet as often as we do, but having a group of ladies (or gents!) that meet up every single month is really pretty special!

If you need some inspiration of what to read there are loads of resources online, including lovely Helen in Marlow who has a super Instagram account called @Bestbookforward and a blog https://www.bestbookforward.org/, Reese Witherspoon also has a great Book Club on Instagram called Hello Sunshine, with lots of inspirational books to read. Also, the longstanding Richard and Judy Book Club is always helpful, and includes a number of books that we have read at P&P.
So for now, I wish you
happy reading and a Happy New Year!
We booked the holiday with Canterbury Travel, 13 months prior to our trip actually taking place. This was a four day tour to Luosto, Finland and our one was called the Magical Interlude Tour. We flew out of Gatwick airport on Friday 20th December with British Airways and flew to Rovaniemi. The flight took about 2.5 hours and as it was solely a Canterbury Travel tour, there were lots of games on-board, the flight deck was decorated with tinsel and fairy lights, and the crew were in particularly fun and mischievous moods! This set the scene really well for the start of the trip and got everyone into a fun festive spirit.
When we arrived in Luosto each family was each taken their accommodation. We opted to stay in a log cabin, which was a good size (as little time was spent actually in it) and had appropriate facilities such as a log burner, sauna and boot dying cupboard. Staying in a log cabin meant that for breakfast and dinner we would grab a sledge (as they are everywhere so you just pick up any one to use) and walk to the allotted restaurant. For those who didn’t want to go outside too much (as it was -21 the night before we got there!) there is the option to stay in a hotel, whereby breakfast and dinner are all within the hotel. My girls loved heading out in the dark morning and evening – as it doesn’t get light until around 11am and then starts to get dark at around 2pm – and so the log cabin was the right choice for our family.
Once we arrived and unpacked we headed to the restaurant and Greg had to take the ‘items’ (these were the code names for the presents from Santa and the girls letters to Santa) and dropped these off to the staff in the pre-arranged location.
This was so special as we were able to feed these gentle giants and then proceeded to walk to the area where we climbed aboard our sledges and we pulled along through the woods by the reindeers! It really was magical and the blankets were welcomed as the temperature had dropped. After a 40 or so minute sleigh ride we then went into a large log cabin for hot refreshments and to meet the reindeer farmer, who told us all there is to know about reindeer – it really was very interesting! After this we walked 100 metres to the restaurant for a lovely hot lunch.
After lunch and as the sun was going down we headed next door to the husky farm – there were over 200 husky dogs, from 8 weeks old upwards, who all lived outdoors in covered pens (apparently the dogs' favourite temperature is -20!!). We went into a tepee for some warm berry juice and the lady who ran the farm told us all about husky dogs and how they run the place – we even met a puppy who I could have quite happily taken home with me!! We then headed off to our own husky ride – Greg was standing at the back of the sledge, while me and the girls sat on it and he steered six huskies through the woods! We followed the guide on her skidoo and with a head torch and six eager dogs we were off and hurtled through the dark woods – it was fast and amazing and to my surprise the girls absolutely loved it and laughed all the way around the track! Once we finished this we all headed back to the coach and through a snow blizzard to the skidoo park, where the children and adults could all have a go – it was a bumpy ride on the skidoos but a lot of fun!
After a busy and fun packed day we got on the coach and headed back to our log cabin, to change and go out for dinner – it certainly built up an appetite and the buffet was lovely with a good variety of options to choose from. Sledging back to the log cabin after the meal, we then all slept very well!
After this we were told that the elf ‘Wendy Wood’, who makes all of the wooden toys, needed each family to come and help her clear all the sawdust from her home and the family with the most sawdust would be the winners....! We were then taken by skidoo and sledge up to Wendy Woods house and our family was called up first to go into her house, with our big boot bag, and collect the sawdust. The girls were totally up for this and were looking forward to being the winning family!! When we got into the house an elf met us and led us up the stairs where we suddenly met Mrs Claus, who was funny and friendly and chatted to us for a while, and then got the girls to so some magic and the book case moved to reveal a door and through the door was another elf! We followed the elf back down the stairs and suddenly there was the man himself, Santa Claus! The girls were so shocked and were the most polite I have ever known them to be!! He had their letters (that they had sent up the chimney two weeks previous) and talked through their lists and gave them each a gift (which we had to put into the boot bag). Another door opened and there was Tricky Dicky to meet us and take us back outside and to tell us not to tell anyone about the secret – which they loved and proceeded to go outside and tell everyone we had a big bag full of saw dust!! It was so well executed, especially for my daughter who was nervous about the thought of meeting Santa. While the other families had their turns, we played in the snow with other elves.
For us, this was a once in a lifetime, memory making, bucket list ticking adventure and was just amazing – it feels like a dream when I look back at my photos – which I have to add were taken with my iphone as I didn’t want to risk taking my work camera and it being dropped or freezing up in the low temperatures!
I hope you have enjoyed reading this blog as much as I have enjoyed writing it and re-living this amazing trip! I can’t wait to take the girls on more adventures as they grow and feel that this is just the start! If you have any questions or comments please feel free to add them below.
The McNeil family x
In my job I get to meet so many families - having now photographed over 130 newborns (and counting!) and many toddlers, tots and tweens! I love meeting so many different people and their families, and I love to find out why people want to have the photo shoot – sometimes it’s just to capture a stage in their child’s development, and sometimes it’s to capture images of family members, who maybe live abroad and time together is all the more precious. Whatever your reason, photographs at any stage in life are so incredibly important, as they capture an age and a moment in a persons life which is then preserved forever.
With meeting so many newborns, the baby’s name is one of the biggest decisions that the parents will make once baby arrives, or in my case, before my baby arrived! For my first daughter we had the scan to tell us the gender – as my husband felt he needed to be able to bond with the baby (as he really wanted a girl!), and he had his heart set on the name Darcey. Thankfully I loved this name too, and so when we found out our baby was a girl, she was already named before she was even born! Naming a baby is such a big responsibility and many questions arise when deciding, such as, does it rhyme with anything?, what are the initials, do I know anyone with that name?, what does the name mean? Without realising the meaning of the names of both of my daughter's names (Darcey and Layla) mean 'dark' or 'night' - and funnily enough they were both born late in the night!
Some people name their baby after a relative, or from a film character (I know Elsa and Anna and Charlotte have gone up in popularity over the years!), or from a book character - naming a baby isn't easy and it usually takes a lot of time to decide what name is best! You will be pleased to know that in the UK there aren't as many restrictions as to what you name your baby - in Iceland, for example, there are a list of 3,600 names to choose from - take a look at this short clip to see some of the names that have been blocked in recent years! <click here>
