As a photographer it’s obvious that I love to take photos.. They reckon about 1.2 Trillion Photos are taken each year but that’s as far as it goes, they stay on a phone, maybe end up on social media but they very rarely get printed.
I however, love to see them in print. The day the photos arrive I still get excited! Don’t worry I’m like the rest of you, I don’t print every photo, I still have tons that sit on my phone but I still love to print some of them.
I started doing photography because I wanted other people to be able to have beautiful photos of their children and families, just like I do. I started off only providing galleries for clients, where they could view the photos in the comfort of their own home and look at their photos at their own leisure but still not see a print.
The next stage would be to purchase prints or photos on a USB stick… but again, rightly, or wrongly, photos would not printed and they would stay safe on the computer or USB.
This is why I decided that I wanted to start doing a reveal wall.
What is a reveal wall?
A reveal wall is photo set up of all your edited prints. Once your session has been completed I edit your photos and then print them ALL off as 7×5 inch mounted prints. This enables us to meet up and allows you to see EXACTLY what your photos will look like. You can see your beautiful gallery up close and decide easily which photos you would like to purchase.
Your photos look great on a computer or your phone but they will look stunning when you can see them in your hand. The other great thing about the wall is that if you decide you like the 7×5 inch prints you are able to purchase them and walk away with them that evening.
If you have ANY questions about the reveal wall please do not hesitate to leave a message below or contact me for more details.
Wisborough Green Hot Air Balloon Festival 2018
Wisbourough Green… do you know it?
I can’t imagine many people do. Its a lovely, sleepy little village in West Sussex that is set around a village green and a pond. It also has a pub, cafe, school and post office. I know it because I drive through it or occasionally I cycle to the cafe. However once a year the village comes alive with people and bursts of colour as 25 balloons descend on the village ready to take flight for the charity Chestnut Tree House
Around sunrise and sunset the hot air balloons are prepared on the village green where you can watch the stunning display of balloons taking off and flying over the Downs and Sussex countryside. This year the weather was so warm with bright blue skies, it was lovely to be able to see the balloons in the sky as the sun was setting.
I can’t wait for next year when I’ll definitely be up early to see them setting up.

Has anyone else’s Facebook Page gone crazy with back to mobile phone school photos? Do you love it or hate? I hear older mums complain that their feeds are taken up with others peoples photos and younger mums saying that they’re not going to do it.. It seems to be a love/hate relationship.
For me I’m a lover.. I take lots of photos of the children but I don’t always see the progress that they make. I just suddenly see they’ve got taller or me grown up. I love the yearly reminder, knowing that each September I will see the photos if the children and it’ll show me gorgeous photos of their progress through their school years.
They will always come up to remind me how much they are growing up and how precious the time is that we have before they leave school and those years are gone for good. Even the children can look back and see what gorgeous little tiddlers they were and what gorgeous children they are today.
My two are military kids so haven’t stayed in the same school or the same house so for them its great to have reminders. It shows them where they have been..
We love keeping height charts and recording their memories and every year without fail I get a memory come up on FB to show me how they are changing.
So, its not about anyone else, its just a gorgeous way to see the progress my children are making. The only regret I have is not going the whole way and taking photos of the simple things… tying their shoe laces, brushing their hair, getting their bags ready etc.
Forget about what everyone else says and post those photos!!
