We recently had a really lovely newborn photo shoot in our Surrey studio, with one of our tiniest babies (weighing just 4 lbs 6oz at birth) and her proud Mum.  This session truly showed us that the excitement and awe of having a precious new baby does not diminish after you have had your first child.  This tiny bundle of gorgeousness is the 4th sibling in her family and these photos show that her arrival was celebrated just as much as her older sisters’.

We had a very touching thank you message after their Newborn session:

“What a fantastic experience, we had a great first outing.
We were treated with warmth and had a lovely morning.
The girls had heated the studio to suit our little girl which made her very comfy and extra sleepy, which enabled us to get those perfect pictures. 
When we went to view the final pictures we just could not believe how beautiful they were and just didn’t know which ones to choose.
I am so pleased I was able to capture these special moments on camera so early in her precious life.
Thanks to the mango girls!”

We have had some lovely photo shoots this month and found it hard to select just one for our Session Spotlight.  So we thought we would put a selection of our favourite pictures together in a beautiful slideshow.  From tiny sleeping Newborns to colourful fun filled Photo Shoot Parties we have had it all this month!  You can see how varied our photo shoots can be from one day to the next.

Spring has really sprung at our rural studio in Cobham and yesterday was our first outdoor family session amongst the daffodils in the field opposite!

Is this something you fancy doing with your family?

Spring is so full of colour and such a wonderful time to take outdoor portraits. Over the next few months lots of different and beautiful flowers will be popping up out of the ground so if you would like to have your family session outside rather than in the studio, GET IN TOUCH AND DON’T MISS OUT

Here is a brother and sister we photographed last May at a secret bluebell location!

A professional portrait of your children and family is a piece of art that you will cherish for a lifetime that is why we refer to it as an investment on our website.  It is not a snapshot solely for Twitter and Facebook. It is a finely crafted masterpiece, which will remind you of those precious times that pass so quickly. The money you invest isn’t just for our undivided attention during your session.  It also covers more than a decade of experience in photography and retouching, tens of thousands of pounds worth of the latest equipment and software, and the inherent expenses of running a legitimate business.

When the average person spends between £750 – £2,000 on professional family photography, some may ask, “Why is it so expensive when you only photograph for one to two hours?” The simple truth is that A LOT more goes into creating beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces of art than the session time. In fact, of all the hours we commit to our photography business, we get to hold our cameras only about 5% of the time! So, let’s take a behind-the-scenes look at the cost of professional portrait photography.

TIME

Your session of 1-2 hours (3-4 for newborn shoots) is only a small portion of the time involved in the creation of your custom artwork. We spend 12-20 hours on each client, including emails, phone consultations, charging and testing of equipment, prep time, uploading images, backing up original files (in multiple locations for redundancy), sorting through hundreds of images, retouching of final images, creating a private gallery, order processing, and designing custom products (e.g. books, CD cases, cards). Not to mention, the time required for other business-related tasks!

BUSINESS COSTS
You’ll enjoy the benefits of tens of thousands of pounds invested in top-of-the-line camera equipment, lenses and software – all of which require constant maintenance and upgrades. The costs of running a studio are substantial. A powerful computer is only the beginning. Multiple display screens, color-calibration, stacks of hard-drives, and expensive retouching software are just the tip of the iceberg. There are also the costs of mortgage, insurance, taxes, accounting, administration, business development, website maintenance, advertising and marketing.

EXPERTISE
You are investing in our highly specialized skill and artistic vision. We have spent more than a decade studying the craft of baby and family photography and retouching. We have attended countless specialist courses, and dedicated hundreds of hours in training and invaluable experience to establish our repertoire. It has taken a great deal of time and effort to build our portfolio, and we continue to enhance these abilities on an ongoing basis.

In a world of commodities, we can easily justify the purchase of a luxury automobile or a fancy gadget, both of which lose their appeal quickly and need to be replaced. Yet, some people have trouble justifying the purchase of the most beautiful kind of art – that which captures the essence of their loved ones. It will not only decorate your home, and draw praise from guests, but will remind you of a wonderful time that has long since passed. A memory, beautifully photographed, printed and framed, will only grow more priceless with age.

Calling all pregnant ladies of Cobham:

As mums and small business owners ourselves it is important to us to help support other local mums in their business ventures whenever possible.

We are thrilled to announce that from the evening of 30th of April 2014  Mango Studios will be home to a new, exciting antenatal class called Lazy Daisy.

The classes will be run by the lovely Claire Smith.  She is a Mum to Ryan 3, and Sarah 1, and following the positive birthing experiences she had, she recently joined Lazy Daisy to become a Daisy Birthing® Mentor to help Mums-to-be to have their own positive birthing experiences.

Claire popped into the studio to tell us what Lazy Daisy is all about.  We felt very calm and relaxed after a chat on her yoga mats and pillows!

Claire Smith1

Daisy Birthing® weekly antenatal classes have the perfect combination of education, movement, breathing and relaxation to help you with your pregnancy and to assist you in having a positive birthing experience. Whether you are pregnant with your first or fourth child, these classes will give you the confidence, tools and techniques to help you with your labour. It is also a great way to meet other Mums-to-be who can help support and encourage you throughout your pregnancy within a non-judgemental atmosphere. Even with a planned (or unplanned) C-section, classes assist you to have a stress-free pregnancy and the relaxation techniques enable you to remain confident and calm to make the necessary decisions on the special day.

Here we are trying out the space!

LazyDaisy3

Daisy Birthing® is a FEDANT approved gentle relaxed-active birthing concept. Tried and tested since 2004, we are the fastest growing birth preparation class in the UK.  The classes run in terms of 6 weeks and Mums-to-be can attend just one term or carry on all the way through their pregnancy should they wish. Most Mums-to-be like to fit in at least 2 terms so that they can benefit from building ‘muscle memory’, using repetition/practice to make techniques second nature for labour. These classes are for women only. If you would like your partner to attend a class, we hold regular couples workshops (please contact Claire for specific dates). Mums-to-be can start the classes from 14 weeks pregnant and continue right through to 42 weeks, should they wish to do so.

Classes will start in Mango Studios, Cobham, on Wed 30th April at 7.30pm and each class runs for approx 1 hour 20 mins. As a special introductory offer, the 6 week

term starting in April 2014 will only cost £54 (RRP £72).

Classes are also held in Esher on Sundays at 5pm to 6.30pm
