Jane – Louise Photography is 3 years old!
Wow! If you had told me when I first picked up a camera I would be here right now I wouldn’t have believe you! I set this business up to bring a bit of pocket money in to pay towards shopping and bills. Its been a hell of a rollercoaster to get to where I am now but I couldn’t be happier.
I set out being purely mobile, going to playgroups etc breaking down the stereotype of photography studios being expensive places. I could not afford photographs of my girls as newborns and its a huge regret of mine. I have one digital image taken by a franchise at the local stay and play and it cost me £30! for one digital image and print! She did not tell me the cost at the time of taking the photographs and as she printed them I just couldn’t say no. I felt pushed and uncomfortable and I knew I would never do that to anyone.
My aim was to be affordable, no hidden fees, friendly, fantastic customer service and offer a range of services. With over 250 5* reviews on facebook and being full time now it seems my customers agree. Cake Smashes, Newborn, Weddings, Christenings, Birthdays, maternity, pets, outdoor, generational shoots, traditional family photoshoots, business branding shoots, mummy and me and even birthday party photoshoots! If you want great photographs that done break the bank in the Chesterfield area then get in touch.
I was lucky to be given a corner of a children’s store where my studio was for a year as it grew. I then had plans to expand and looking at where my clientele was travelling from etc I chose somewhere central for my customers. I moved the studio to Clay Cross 30th November 2018 and I absolutely love it there. If you are reading this you will know that the studio is expanding, I have not made this public knowledge yet so this secrets between us 😉 .
