Blue Moon Portraits Based in Dingwall, Ross-Shire, Highlands.
Well since yesterday I have been non stop..... I have done two shoots one 2 week old wee boy yesterday and his big sister. The wee fella didnt want to sleep at all but we still managed to get some amazing shots.
Today since the morning started I have not stopped moving, Preparing for a morning shoot with a gorgeous wee girl.
It was a session rescheduled from a few weeks ago the little princess did not want to be put down. Its amazing how going from newborn 3ish weeks to 6 weeks can make such a difference. Looked at the pics from the first time with mum and she has almost doubled in size super alert very strong and very smiley. Amazing for the age she is.
After that great morning spend all day editing and ordering art prints for this weekends craft fair at the St James Church in Lossiemouth.... Im a dreadful church goer not been there since we got married last year. I can see Graham the minister giving me a row for that one.
Also last but not least today I helped another amazing photographer from Greenock name her new camera strap company. After all my random idea's including strapping stuff, straps with love and starstraps..... She eventually settled for the one I came up with called "Strap Me To The Moon"!!!!
Exciting stuff having another one of my names picked for a company and really glad to have been able to help Karen of Damselfly Photography in Greenock name her new venture making camera straps and other camera accessories.
I have added a picture of one of her beautiful straps and if any of you are looking for a camera strap with a difference her facebook page to get them is.... https://www.facebook.com/StrapMeToTheMoon.
Love and Hugs I defo need to go to bed.
So here we are finally jumping on the blog bandwagon. So lets start with a bit about me.
I am Lynsey Jones as your on my page you will see that my main passion is photography.
It started as a hobby and went crazy from there.
I am married to a lovely man who supports my hobby and understands my bizarre addiction to buying blankets.
I love creating beautiful images for families and hope to become an award winning photographer one day.
I started out seven years ago making bacon rolls and cleaning up after people in an asda cafe. It was not what I would call at 18 an amazing career.
One fed up night I decided to search for jobs and found a job saying photographers wanted... no experience necessary. Thinking this is to good to be true but what the hell I found myself applying anyway.
Little did I know this would be the start of my journey to find my biggest love and get me to where I am today.
Working for Pixifoto gave me the basic experience I needed. After a few years with them I found myself more creative and fed up with all the hard selling. I wanted more I wanted to be able to create images people wanted rather than tell someone they had to buy it there and then.
After leaving them I tried my hand at outdoor photography, weddings, got a basic studio and continued as a hobby but there was only so much could do mobile.
Eventually after drifting with the hobby I found my husband who made me see that I was better than I gave myself credit for. After getting married (well should say it was a whirlwind wedding within six months) I went on and did photo shoots for friends and neighbours to gain more experience. Teaching myself as I went.
Last summer Blue Moon Portraits was born. The name getting its meaning from an actual blue moon (not the smurfs) the saying once in a blue moon to be exact.
A blue moon occurs every three years, much like the time scale people update the pictures on their walls.
So now we have almost reached summer 2013 and am now starting to find my worth. My prices will be rising and I will be focusing on newborn, children and family photography. Removing weddings, parties and events from my services.
I will still offer boudoir photography but it will be enquiry only for those sessions and will not be publicly advertised except in the run up to valentines day.
So there we go...... From now will try to keep upto date with blog sessions and go from there. If your a new customer reading this then welcome I look forward to hearing from you.
And to those who have already been I cannot thank you enough for your support and custom.
