Party time

I’ve been having a play this weekend with Pic Collage. It’s tag line is “party with your photos” and that’s just what I’ve doing. I’ve used party photos to make a set of collage photos, one using photos from more grown up parties, one with photos from children’s birthday parties, and one with “photo booth” style pics with props to dress up with. It’s been a lot of fun and I hope you’ll like them.

First the grown ups:


Then the children:


And lastly the dress up/photo booth photos:


Of course I must say thanks to everyone that’s allowed me to share photos of them (or their children) online. I hope you like the collages. Please remember everyone that if you’re planning a special party whether it’s for children or grown ups, do consider letting me do some photography for you. I can take photos to document the party itself, showing the celebrations and guests (young or young-at-heart) having fun, or I can set up a photo area and become part of the party entertainment. Either way I’ll give you good service and value. Just get in touch using the form below, or by email to if you’d like to discuss.

Party on, dudes!


Has Spring sprung?

So the first day of Spring eh? Could have fooled me.

To be fair it’s not just been the cold that’s kept me at home the past few days, my daughter has tonsillitis. I’m getting impatient to be out taking photos, so have been looking at ViewBug for inspiration. I’m trying to look for photos like this to make me feel warm inside, rather than ones like this – gorgeous as he is I’m feeling cold enough already.

To brighten us all up though, as a special Spring offer I’m pleased to offer 25% off any booking confirmed by the end of April 2018, and taking place by Sunday 23rd September  2018 (the start of Autumn). So if you’ve got an event coming up – hop to it and get in touch (use the form below or email to discuss how I can help.


Happy Mother’s Day

I got taken out for breakfast this morning, which was lovely. A touch too chilly to sit comfortably outside at the Waterfront, Benson, but not far off. Full up on sausage, bacon, egg, baked beans, black pudding and toast we went for a stroll round the castle grounds at nearby Wallingford. Back at home this afternoon it’s been a quiet afternoon for me, while the rest of the family play games and soon we’ll be having a some lovely roast beef and yorkshire puddings.

If you’re looking to arrange a treat (or an extra treat!) for your mother, it’s not too late to get in touch and arrange for some photos. Maybe she’d like photos of her family, or of herself? Either way let me know if you’d like some relaxed photos taking.

And of course, let me say an extra special thank you to my own Mum for everything she’s done over the years. Love you and Hope you’ve had a lovely day  xx


Party, party, party


Do you have a birthday or other party coming up? How about having some photo booth style pics taken? Popular with adults and children alike, it can add to the fun and give you a lot of happy pics to giggle over and remember the event by. Photos make great little keepsakes to give to guests as little thank yous of course.

I can run this service alongside a disco, or other party activity. And while I’m there I can always take photos of other party activities such as blowing out the candles. Or I can just concentrate on the party if you don’t want a photo booth. Either way, if I’m at your party I’ll get you some great pics while you concentrate on having fun.


This has been a popular activity at recent events, and clients have been very happy with the outcome.

Thank you so much for all your hard work tonight Sam!!! You’re a star!!!!!

I love this pic!

If you provide the venue and guests I can bring backdrop and props, and photo kit of course! I’ll take plenty of photos then get you a set of digital files asap for you to share, email, print etc as much as you like.

So if you’re in the mood for a party then please get in touch – I look forward to hearing from you.

Spring in my step


The wind might have been chilly, but it was nice to see a bit of sunshine this afternoon. Had a quick trip to the park after pick up from school, and a walk down to pick up train tickets from the station. I loved these big blue sky and fluffy clouds. And the train tickets? Well we’re going to the Big Bang Fair next weekend – hopefully all the science will lead to some interesting photos? Come back and have a look soon.


Art and craft

We had a visit to the River and Rowing Museum at Henley today. Partly to get out of the house and partly because I wanted to see the Barbara Hepworth and yarn bombing exhibitions there.

Daughter is growing up enough to want to look round parts of the museum on her own (so she looked at Wind in the Willows while I looked at the Barbara Hepworth bit) but not too grown up for a touch of dressing up, even if she looks grumpy about it. And definitely not too old for a family selfie (with the held of a wide angle lens) in the cafe.

Fingers crossed

Have you seen ViewBug? I’ve not been there in a while, but somehow wandered that way this evening. They have some beautiful photos over there. Truly. They also have photo contests. So tonight I’ve chanced my luck and had a go. Seven goes to be exact. So wish me luck!
