Curly hair and eyes so blue … {sneak peek}

I first met William when he was just a bump and then again when he was seven weeks old. And now, gorgeous mum Emma is expecting again and asked me to return for some maternity shots and to also take a few portraits of William.

Now, with children, there is a small window of time to get “the shot”. But with this engaging little boy and his amazing mop of curly blonde hair, even playing peek-a-boo lent itself to fabulous images …

See what I mean? If you have a toddler who just won’t sit still, won’t smile when you try to take a photo yourself, then why not consider booking a session with me. More details on my website www.samanthajonesphotography.co.uk or you can email me to book: sam@samanthajonesphotography.co.uk – I’d love to hear from you and start making your family memories!

Testimonials {are a beautiful thing}

Are you one of my fabulous clients? Whether wedding, engagement, lifestyle or business client, testimonials are a great way to spread the word about the experience that you had with me, your photographer. My testimonial page www.samanthajonesphotography.co.uk/testimonials on my website is being updated to include current (and if I do say so myself, glowing …) testimonials that I have received. I also encourage my clients to find me on Google and FreeIndex and to post testimonials there too.

As I am currently the nominated photographer for www.thebestof.co.uk/local/canterbury, they also have a review page on local businesses. If you are local and you have used me as your photographer, why not fill out a review form here and, whilst you are there, check out some other great offers on the site for local companies.

I always love to hear from my brides and grooms once they have received their images. Here’s a recent note from Ellie and Ed (their wedding is here):

“We received the discs yesterday and I must say they were beautifully wrapped and presented. We looked through the photos together last night and we absolutely love them. Thank you so much. I can’t say how pleased we are. Thanks again!”

Thanks Ellie and Ed! You can find other testimonials here on my blog too. So get clicking and get writing and make your photographer a very happy one!

{Lifestyle photoshoot} – dodging the clouds with Marta and family

Thank goodness Marta scheduled her family photoshoot when she did – we literally got back to their house and the rain started … I wanted to post a couple of images for them to enjoy and share with their families abroad …

Both children seemed to enjoy themselves …

And daddy too …

The weather was just perfect, with blue skies and fluffy white clouds (if we had looked in the other direction, we would have seen the rain clouds coming!) …

And one final, happy smiley shot!

Thanks again to you all for making it such fun … the online gallery will be open very soon. I am taking bookings for midweek family and lifestyle photoshoots so, if you like what you see here, do drop me a line sam@samanthajonesphotography.co.uk to book your session in the diary. And let’s hope the sun keeps shining!
