A contact sheet was found in my grandmothers possessions. I was mesmerised by it. The print shows my mum as a 7 month old, blond, curly, inquisitive, cute and bossy little baby girl who had just learnt to sit up. My grandmother’s hand accidentally reaching in on a few of the shots to wipe away the dribbles or change the favourite toy is what makes it such a special little collection.
Everything had been left in, the outtakes and wobbles add to the charm and story of the photography session. In fact, some of the expressions and funny little looks show a glimpse of my mothers personality now!
I loved looking at this contact sheet so much that I have used the idea to create a new product for Pictorial Photography called ‘Expressions’. Some of you may have seen this framed copy in the studio behind my desk.
I trialled Expressions last year and it proved a popular offer, this year I am offering a limited 8 exclusive Expressions mini shoots on February 27th and March 21st 2017 at a special price of only £45 (a whopping 65% off!) which will include:
- 30 minute studio shoot at our studio on Berwick Quayside (with free all day parking outside)
- In-person ordering session where you can choose your favourite expressions for your wall
- An 18"x12" (45x30cm) expressions print of your child as shown above (usually 30 pictures on the print)
The photographs are all taken in a vintage high chair so the resulting framed photograph looks best on display in your kitchen or dining room. Every time you look at these photographs your heart will fill with love and you will have beautiful memories to treasure forever.
To book one of our Expressions mini shoots click HERE, only 8 spots available.
Your baby needs to be able to sit unsupported in a high chair (usually around 6 months - 2 years old). Expression mini sessions are NOT suitable for babies who can not sit unaided.
You will need to bring babies favourite toys, any heirloom toys you would like to include, a bib and a change of top.
