New photos from Whitebox photography

A couple of years ago I took C to review Whitebox photography and got some really cute photo’s taken. We really enjoyed it and I found that Liam the photographer was really great with C, he was able to get great photo’s even when she was moving and could get her attention easily to get the photo’s I wanted.

I thought it was about time that I got some updated photo’s so looked on Whitebox photography’s facebook page and booked another session.
So at the I took her up to Crosby for a 20 minute photo session.

I have to say £25 for a 20 minute session is a bargain when you get all the photo’s on a CD.
C had so much fun laughing and jumping her way though the whole session. We got some really cute photo’s, here are a few of my favourites.

I really do recommend Liam at WhiteBox Photography Liverpool to anyone looking to have pictures taken, great quality and value for money plus the copyright is yours so you can print and edit the images however you want.

Which is your favourite picture?

Flashback Friday 13/02/15

This weeks Flashback Friday picture ( 44/365) was taken last March in a photo shoot we had at limitless photography, we had a great day I had my hair and make up done and we had a lovely photo-shoot. This picture is a lovely one of me with C.

It has been photo shopped though, which I’m not a huge fan off.
I did have the original (unphotoshopped) photo’s as well until my computer died and I lost them all along with quite a few others.

Have you ever had a photo-shoot?  

Mr nutcase phone cover review*

Mr nutcase creates personalised phone and tablet covers for a variety of modern devices. Its a website where you can upload your pictures and create the cover of your choice. to personalise your phone. They have most modern phone and tablets to choose from, simply chose the make and model from the drop down lists then choose either a leather or ultra light weight case.

I chose a ultra lightweight case for a Samsung galaxy 4 mini, They didn’t have my phone to choose as it is an older model so I got one to fit onto my dad’s phone. Since I knew he had been looking for a cover, and I though this would be perfect. My dad loved to show off pictures of Baby C to anyone he see’s so to have a picture of her on the cover of his phone is perfect for him.

you simply chose the layout you want, wether It is a collage of pictures in different styles or just one large one, then positioned your pictures it to fit in the outline on screen.The outlines shows where the cut outs will be meaning that you can choose where things go so you don’t miss bits of the picture out where the holes are positioned.

I chose to have just one picture on my case as the positioning of the camera and speaker holes would have meant cutting out too much of other photos. I positioned my photo where I thought It looked best. I chose a picture of Baby C and also decided to add some text to it. I wrote “I will always hold you hand” .

It was quick and easy to add text with a choice of fonts, positions and orientations for the text. You can also change the background colours and add selected clipart images to the cover.

The delivery was quick and it arrived in a padded envelope and to my surprise also has a screen protector included.

As soon as I could I fitted it onto the phone and it fits perfectly. It helps to prevent damage to the phone when it is dropped, Which happens alot when the baby wants to play with it, and also by my dad when he leaves it on the arm of the couch and knocks it off.

The cost of this ultra lightweight cover is £14.95, the cost of a leather flip style cover for the samsung galaxy s4 mine would have been £19.95. In my opinion this product is definitely worth the money. It both protects and brightens what would otherwise be a boring phone cover.

Since I got this for my dad’s phone both my mum and boyfriend now want one for theirs.

canvas design review and competition*

I have been given the opportunity to review a photo canvas of my choice by a lovely company called Canvas Design

Canvas Design ( www.canvasdesign.co.uk) is a UK based company that print your photographs on the canvas for you to hang on your walls. It gives you the freedom to choose your high quality pictures, and get them in the sizes you want without the huge price tag of some of the photography studios.

Their webpage is very user friendly and their communication in brilliant, very quick to reply to any email queries and dispatch times are very quick, usually within 48 hours of ordering. I placed my order on Thursday afternoon and got a text on Friday afternoon telling me my delivery was due on Monday, also giving me the option to change delivery date or have it delivered to a neighbour.  Monday morning came and along came another text giving me an hour delivery slot. It was delivered on time and packaged brilliantly, protecting it from any damage.

You need to choose a high quality photograph because you don’t want it to become distorted when it is enlarged.

I know from experience that when you get professional photographs taken it can cost an arm and a leg for you to actually get the pictures they take. The photos are usually amazing and you want them all, but to be able to put them on your wall could cost thousands. In my opinion Canvas Design could print them for you for a fraction of the price, and you would get the amazing wall art that will help to finish off any room.

Here is a price list of all the sizes that they have available.

I chose to get one of the professional high quality pictures that were taken by Venture photography printed onto canvas, It is my favourite picture at the moment. My boyfriend has claimed it for his office wall though.
