Welcome to the new look website for About U Photography & my introduction to blogging!


I am so pleased to announce the new look website. It has been a while in the planning I can tell you & not being a techie wizard I had been putting it off for a long while now, but following the studio move to Rainham, Kent the timing seemed to be right for a fresh start.

The blog will become the new home of my sneaky peaks Facebook, is just not working anymore, plus I can have control on how the image should look.

Our story began after having an unsuccessful shoot with my son at a local studio in Maidstone back in 2007! I noticed that the photographer had no rapport with my son & the end result was far from impressive, the seed was planted! I spent the following months researching digital equipment, which was relatively new on the scene & after selling my 1973 Triumph Spitfire to fund my first camera a Nikon D200 & mid range zoom lens, I started to work on building a strong portfolio & work on converting my home studio space ready for clients. This was right at the beginning of the recession, was I mad? The original launch was at the end of 2008.

Luckily for me the key to the businesses growth has always been word of mouth recommendation which proves that I am providing my clients with a quality service. But over the past five years since launching the original website, the digital age has changed drastically. I was not only finding that the website was looking a little tired but I needed a better vehicle to showcase my work & push it to other social media outlets, which can be so time consuming. I now feel that I have a web shop window to match my new boutique photography studio that I can once again feel proud of.


Clients can also benefit from the integrated password protected galleries if they are unable to attend the viewing/order session. I am also considering trialling personal galleries for all clients showcasing all purchased images so they can share with friends & family, giving them the choice to purchase prints of their own!


Thanks for your support, now the next chapter begins.
