Happy 5th Birthday to Bright Eyes Photography!!!

Yes Bright Eyes Photography is 5 TODAY!!

Too bad I don't do 5 year-old cake smashes :(  (I'm making a rice pudding instead)

Who would have thought those 5 years would go so quickly? I've been "having a ball" photographing lots of children who have come from far and wide including Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Essex, London, Surrey, Kent and even as far as south Wales!

Lucky lucky person am I, having been given the privilege to photograph  somewhere in the region of 350 children throughout that time, with 200 of those being cake smashes, and the rest, a mix of family sessions, paint splashes, nursery and pre-school sessions, newborn, mini model shoots, Memory Photobooks, and the new Play Box white cube sessions.  

The first cake smash I did was in October 2012 with a little boy called Regan who is now 5 years old. He was a great little model and enjoyed getting messy with the cake. Originally an American concept, the UK public took cake smashes to their hearts and the past 3 years have been incredibly busy. In that time, the splash tubs have been added and I have branched out into sessions using jelly, fruit, and spaghetti as well as non-food First birthday photos for those that have wanted them.

Of course, none of this would have been possible without all my lovely little clients and you, the mums and dads who booked them in. Without you, there would be no Bright Eyes Photography so thank you from the bottom of my heart for choosing me to help create your precious memories.

This year I am investing in more training, (as a girl needs to keep upskilling in different techniques!) and branching out into one or two different things, (you may have seen our new Playbox Sessions advertised), though cake smash and splash sessions will still be at the centrepiece of the business. 

Here's to the next 5 years!
