Buttercup3

Our buttercup field! The perfect backdrop!

Everyday we come to work, we realise how lucky we are to work in such a gorgeous studio, surrounded by the beautiful English countryside.  In May, the fields outside our studio turn into a glorious golden glow of buttercups.  It is the perfect place to capture laughter, love and life for your family.

Come and join us for a Family Mini Shoot on 31st May in our buttercup fields!

What is a Family Mini Shoot?

A mini shoot is perfect if you want to update your family photos.  Each shoot is 30 minutes long and suitable for families with up to 2 children.  If you have a larger family these sessions are not suitable as we will need more time to capture your family perfectly.  You can book a portrait shoot with us instead.  Please see our website for more details on our family portrait shoots.

What is the cost of a Mini Shoot?

Our mini shoots are fantastic value for money.   For £275 you will have a 30 minute session, 5 beautiful 10″ x 8″ prints and the same 5 digital images on CD.  (The normal price for this is over £500)

What Time are the Mini Shoots? 

There are only 5 slots available at the following times: 9.30, 10.10,  15.20, 16.00 & 16.40.

How to Book?

 Mini sessions are very popular and get booked up quickly.  Bookings will be given on a first come first serve basis.  To book a place please CALL either Liana: 07976 625 552 or Becky: 07748 186 463 and they will allocate you a time slot and talk to you about what to bring.

We look forward to seeing you!

Here are a few photos of our Mango Model playing in the buttercups last year. Can you believe we have this on our doorstep!

Regular readers of our newsletter will know that we have been asking you to nominate a friend or family member that you think deserves to win a very special Mango Studio’s photo shoot.   We want to thank everyone who sent a nomination in. They were all such touching stories and it was impossible to choose, so the winner was drawn from a hat.

We are running the competition again now and will pick a new winner in 3 months time.  So if you have someone you think deserves the following prize please email your nominations to info@mangostudios.uk.com

We are delighted to introduce you to our well deserving winners Jennie and Drew.

Jennie’s friend sent us this very moving email back in November.

I want to nominate my friend Jennie.  She’s a single mum to her son Drew aged 3.

A year ago Drew was diagnosed with Retinoblastoma which is cancer of the eye. He had to have immediate surgery and have one eye removed.  He has had chemotherapy and cryotherapy on the cancer in the other eye but it still has a cancerous tumour in it and a floating tumour.   He has to have exploratory surgery on his eye every 3 weeks.  Jennie is very positive about the situation and I don’t know how she does it.   I would love for them to have special pictures for both of them to view.
I hope this story touches you, I know it breaks my heart and I wish there was more I could do. 

I would love for them to win something like this because I can’t think of anyone in my life who deserves it more.

Jennie and Drew came into the studio last week for their photo shoot.  Drew was so well behaved and has a great cheeky smile.  It was truly lovely to meet them and we hope they love these special moments we captured of them together.  We are honoured to be able to give such precious memories to someone so deserving.

Drew1

Drew had lots of energy which was great as it gives lovely movement to the pictures and captures his true bubbly nature.

Drew2

We were also thrilled that Drew’s Grandparents came along and it was so lovely to have 3 generations of one family in front of the camera.  We know this will be a treasured family photo forever.  Beautiful, genuine smiles obviously run in the family.

Drew3

Pirate Pete had a lovely smile for the camera too!  Letting little ones bring their favourite toys into the studio is a great way to help them relax and lets us capture lovely natural expressions.  You can tell they are best buddies can’t you!

Drew4

We want to thank Jennie and Drew for letting us be part of their emotional story and we hope to see them both again really soon.  We know that Drew’s story will have touched lots of our readers and some people have been asking how they can make a donation to help towards Drew’s treatment.  Drew’s Just Giving Page is currently being set up so if you would like to make a donation please email us at: info@mangostudios.uk.com and we will forward the details on to you once we have them.

We are running the competition again now and will pick a new winner in 3 months time.  So if you have someone you think deserves the following prize please email your nominations to info@mangostudios.uk.com:

A one hour photo shoot in our beautiful studio in Cobham

A viewing session to see all of the photos taken

A USB with 10 digital images of your choice from the photo shoot

Back in November we blogged a beautiful pregnancy shoot as part of a Bump to Baby package. It is so amazing to capture a blossoming Mum-to-be and then to finally meet the tiny baby that has been hiding inside for so long.

Newborn Edward arrived last week and he is totally divine as you will see in the these photos from his Newborn Shoot.

So without further ado please come and meet tiny Edward and his glowingly proud parents.  We have no doubt that these pictures will be treasured forever, and when Edward has children of his own, he will be able to show them these pictures of himself as a baby and look at how happy and loving his parents were.

There is nothing quite like a father and baby picture to make our hearts melt!

He was a joy to photograph.  So calm and content.

Such a beautiful family, don’t they all look so peaceful?

Being pregnant is a magical experience, but finally having your baby safely in your arms is a feeling like nothing on earth. Pure Joy.  Elizabeth Stone once wrote  “Making a decision to have a child — it’s momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.”
