And the winner of our caption competition is….

We had a great shoot recently with a family’s new arrival ..their second daughter!  Cute as a button and just as cheeky as her older sister!  I couldn’t resist opening up a mini competition to find the best caption for this sweet picture on our facebook page.  We had some hilarious entries but it really was very clear which caption best fitted the image.

So, the lucky winner, who receives a £50 Tina Bolton photography voucher to spend with us over the next 6 months is…..

Claire Bustin with:  in the voice of the late great Tommy Cooper…”just like that”  CONGRATULATIONS Claire!!  Bronwen, whose daughter this is, will also receive an A4 print (worth £45) as a thank you for letting us use her little darling’s image!

Claire came up with LOADS of ideas and a big thank you to everyone who joined in!!  I am sure we’ll come up with another one sometime closer to Christmas, so watch this space or ‘like’ our page to keep up with the latest offers and news.

Generation game

This is one of my favourite families to photograph, and we have shared many photo shoots together including, weddings, bumps, newborns and now a big family birthday celebration.  They all managed to keep smiling despite the rugby results the previous day!

This shot reproduced a family shot they had when their hair was far more embarrassing!

Now more importantly we had three gorgeous grandchildren on the scene, a beautiful sweeping staircase and a classic shot just crying out to be taken!  I couldn’t resist!

I think he could breathe!

Teenagers are sooo much fun during a photo shoot and these guys were no exception!!  We had a great afternoon near a country cricket ground, just ‘larking’ about taking photos.  The mum wanted some professional photographs that reflected the family’s sense of fun and we did that!  The trick is to get them ‘doing’ things during a shot and photographing the laughter that inevitably follows.  Of course towards the end when everyone is relaxed they feel much happier posing for more family style images (even though mum was actually doing ‘the plank’ in one of them!!)  Smiles and fun all round and everyone liked their pics.

Mini Shoots are back …just in time to solve your Christmas dilemmas!

WOW!  we are having mammoth celebrations here at Tina Bolton Photography, firstly we reduced our family and pregnancy shoots to just £75 (the first fee we ever charged in 2003!!) and now for those families short on time we have a weekend of fuss free, fun family shoots.  So book now – these mini shoots run on the 22nd and 23rd October, a time slot MUST be booked in advance.

Our mini shoots are always popular, they allow families to drop in for upto 30 minutes (a time slot must be booked) for just £25, the difficult bit is choosing which photographs to have!  We are also offering a very special calendar treat for clients booking a shoot (or mini shoot) between now and 31st December 2011.  This is a simply gorgeous, bespoke desk calendar (in a CD case) with 12 – yes – 12! of your images – this calendar is completely free* and worth £30.

Don’t just take my word for it:

“We all had a such a good time, it’s been ages since we had professional family photos taken, we couldn’t believe how much fun we had and the photos were fantastic!”  Sam, Petersfield

“Mini shoots are the perfect way to get my husband over for a family photo shoot and even he enjoyed himself, the photos were perfect and the grandparents LOVED them”  Sarah, Havant
