Sam, Harri, Will & Tom

Thanks to the Harri (Harriet), Sam, Tom & Will for making one of the first portrait shoots I've done this year very very easy. All 4 spent the whole time I was there making each other laugh and giggle away making pictures quite natural and relaxed.

Wasn't too happy when the slightest of breezes got a hold of my fil light and sent it crashing to the ground outside bending the handle of my little white umbrella, but that's a good lesson learned in making sure the stand is sturdy enough.

Was a little worried at one point when Tom was getting so carried away on the trampoline, I thought he was going to end up in next doors garden.. can you imagine his mum can't you..."Please Mr, can I have my son back?"

Anyway, here's a couple of pics from the shoot. Hope you like them.

Planning and more planning...

It all seems like a good idea going into business for yourself until you get down to the nitty gritty of business plans and looking at how you're going to survive...after several hours of staring at a business plan, I'm not sure I'm any further forward..but my head hurts!

Hannah & James

OK, so some of my picture story boards on here might arrive in a bit of a wonky order, but I need to double check people are ok with their pics (My pics) going online.

Here's Hannah and cheeky chops James looking all angelic. Thanks to Charlie my little 3 year old photographers assistant who helped make them smile by shouting out rude words from behind me.

I'm still not a fan of good old fashioned backdrops of marbley blue or plain old white, I much prefer something or somewhere to make up the back drop for a more natural picture. Anyway, was happy with the way these turned out...still not gonna be setting the fashion world alight anytime soon ...but I'm getting better.

Hope you all like the pics!

Welcome to Carve Photography

It Starts......

In celebration of being made redundant and becoming a real time modern statistic, I thought I'd keep with the modern trend and set myself up a blog..everyones doing it, even my sister has one for her allotment..go figure. I don't know if that's because allotments are interesting or Mark has nothing else to do...who knows!

Anyway, as you may or may not know, I'm in the process off setting myself up in the Photography / Design business, so I thought I'd keep you updated on how I'm doing to see if I can make it in this big harsh world of everyone having no cash.

Thanks to everyone who's helped me so far and thanks to all those unsuspecting future customers yet to come...fingers crossed!
