Mothers Day Gifts Worcestershire, Kidderminster, Birmingham and West Midlands

We have two great Mothers Day gift ideas, Mothers day is on Sunday 30th March 2014 so there is not too long to go, we often have Dads bring their small toddlers in for a surprise photo shoot and a special picture gift for mum on Mothering Sunday, we also have shoots set up by thoughtful teenagers who get a shot of the brothers and sisters to give to mum, particularly good if going away to university is coming soon.

Here is another superb Mothers day gift why not club together and buy mum a special Makeover session – we can make a personalised makeover gift voucher and you could attend the makeover with her and have some pictures altogether, we have also done may mother and daughter makeovers where the daughter has bought the makeover as a present for mum and we have some very special offers on these – just call Jane on 01562 747612.

Contact Lenses for your Photo Shoot

In this day and age so many photographs are taken with mobile phones and pocket-sized cameras, and people seem to be getting a bit less picky about how they are photographed. The simple fact is, technology has enabled people to constantly shoot photos, which means we really can’t control how we look in every single picture that gets taken.
However, there are still times when it is far better to hire a professional photographer for a Makeover Portrait or Boudoir Photography session.
With these styles of shoot you have more time to consider how you look, and how you style yourself. This doesn’t mean that you need to alter your appearance or make any big changes, but a few little details here and there can certainly help for example, one thing that many people choose to do if they know they have photography sessions coming up is switch from eyeglasses to contact lenses. This is a subtle, small, and impermanent shift, but it can actually lead not only to better photographs, but also a bit more comfort during the photo shoot. If you don’t want your switch to contact lenses to be permanent, it’s easy enough to simply purchase a few pairs of daily lenses from Acuvue for the photography occasions alone.

There are two main reasons that it might be a good idea to wear contact lenses for a makeover or portrait photo shoot. The first is that your appearance in the photos may be enhanced for those looking at the photographs can see you eyes more clearly, this is not to suggest that people do not look good in eyeglasses – in fact, glasses suite many people perfectly. However, small details are important in photography, and if you wear glasses it can sometimes be a bit harder to be seen clearly in a photograph, as your eyes will not be on full, clear display. People are drawn to eyes, and wearing glasses – yes, even clear, simple prescription ones – can hide you a little bit in a photograph. The other reason that you may be more comfortable switching to contact lenses for a big photo shoot is simply that it may help you avoid irritation. If you will be posing for many photographs in a single session, the flash of the cameras can become quite irritating when seen through eyeglasses. A comfortable pair of contacts can simply make it easier to look into the camera for dozens of pictures at a time.

We constantly have around 20 fantastic Makeover Photography shoots per month and as well as me finding some time to try out some great new lighting variations ( See the picture below taken of Laura  last week ) and get to grips with having 2 beauty lighting dishes to use for that hot fashion look for the first time,  Jane has been been taking a greater and more creative ” hands on” role in the shooting of the Makeover Photography shoots and has achieved some fabulous results and is producing some terrific wall art and canvas art from her shoots.

We are also now offering a short extension to our makeover photography sessions for those that would like some outdoor, woodland setting, location shots added on to their shoot.
