Dog Photoshoot – Pet Photography

I am literally counting down the days until I can welcome you and your pet dog to my new studio for your Fur Baby’s Photoshoot.   I’m open now taking bookings but like all other non-essential shops, am unable to open for photoshoots til 12th April 2021.

Your Fur Babies are very welcome to the studio – and I just love pet / dog photography.  Having 2 fur babies myself, Martha and Murphy, I know what a joy they are and how much a part of your family they are too.  Everyone says to me that ‘my dog would never sit still’ – no dog sits still LOL … but there are way and tricks to get the images you’ll love.

My studio photo sessions are very relaxed in a lovely warm and friendly environment, so that you not only get the images you will love forever, but you will really enjoy the experience too.

I have 2 sale packages published online for Pet Photography – to view please click here. There are no hidden costs, there is nothing more to pay if you book one of our packages, unless of course you would like additional images – you can request to see my price list for additional images prior to booking.

There are also 2 Doggy Cake Smash sale packages published on the same page – just incase you fancy giving your pouch a real treat!!

Following your Pet photoshoot with Shy Violet Photography, a Gallery of images will be online for 3 weeks on our Customer Only GALLERY website where you will be able to view your images in the privacy of your own home, and as many times as you like.

I love the 5-6 months milestone, I think it’s a wonderful time to capture your baby – they are just about sitting up (some unaided) and are showing lots of personality.  They smile and giggle and it’s easy to get their attention for the best baby shots.

Package prices (as shown on our website) can include as many props as you like and all editing/retouching required. We discuss in full your requirements at the start of your session.

Open again 12th April 2021 for Cake Smash Photoshoots

Open again 12th April 2021 for Cake Smash Photoshoots

I literally cannot wait to open on 12th April to welcome you to my new studio for cake smashing photoshoots.

Cake Smashing is still very very popular for the 1st birthday and does make for some wonderful and fun keepsake photos.

I call my photoshoots, my 3 in 1 Happimess photoshoots to include the Cake Smash.  My sessions start with wooden letters spelling ‘One’ (you choose which letters on the day), followed by the Cake Smash and then a wash off in my posing roll top bath with bubbles.  3 shoots as one which last around an hour to an hour and a half.

This is the very cute Aleah.  We started Aleah’s off with some pics of her using our small pinky girly ‘one’ letters and our floral ‘1’. We then gave Aleah her cake and she was quite delicate in her cake smashing technique!  Followed by her tub wash off which again was very ‘lady-like’.  A charming little character and we got some super cute pics.

Following her photo shoot, a Gallery of approx 60 images was uploaded to our Customer Only GALLERY website where her parents were able to view her images and choose their faves from here – they chose Package A – An 18×12″ collage in print (approx size of A3 paper), plus 2 x 8×10″ prints (almost A4 size) and 4 x digital images.

If you are thinking of booking a birthday cake smash for your little one, our 3 Sale Packages are shown on our website – click here. Each package includes an 8” tall personalised cake made extra soft and gooey and very yummy, in a choice of colours.  But we do have other exciting and fun cakes for you to choose from and examples of these are shown on our website too.

If you would like to discuss a colour scheme or a certain theme, then please do get in touch – we are always open to and welcome new ideas.

There are no hidden costs, there is nothing more to pay if you book one of our packages, unless of course you would like additional images – you can request to see these prior to booking.

For 100s of cake smash pics – click here to go to our Facebook page.  Or our Instagram page

Shy Violet Photography’s NEW Studio

Shy Violet Photography has moved into a brand new studio

The Shy Violet Photography Studio has been at Woodend Mills in Springhead for over 12 years but now we’ve moved to a brand new studio – but we’ve only moved about 500 yards up the road!

The address of my NEW studio is: Shy Violet Photography, 1st Floor, 49-51 Co-Operative Street, Springhead, Oldham, OL4 5TB. I am above a shop called Garforth Glass. You will see a sign for both of us on the main road. For those of your who are local to the area, you may have heard of Garforth Glass as it’s been there for many many years.

I now have a lovely large space – pics below – and have kept the warm friendly feel that I had at Woodend Mills.  It’s important to me that you feel comfortable and at ease as soon as you arrive and this I think I have achieved … but come see for yourself.  Not quite finished … but almost there – pics below.

Shy Violet Photography caters for ALL types of photography – please see list below with links to the relevant webiste page – this will take you to the gallery plus the sale package prices which are published online.
