I recently had the priviledge to doing a maternity shoot for a new mum to be called Samantha and I was over the moon to find out that, a week after the shoot, she gave birth to a beautiful boy called Jacob. I want to take this opportunity to wish them all the best with their new addition and I’m looking forward to capturing Jacobs progress over the coming months and even years
We had a great day at Fountains Hall wedding fair on Sunday 17th October as a special thanks goes out to Elizabeth and all the staff for their help on the day (and of course for the refreshments and biscuits). We met some great couples, had a lot of interest in our wedding “photobooth” and great comments from everyone about our wedding photography. I even managed to take a quick photo with my phone of the stand which showcased some of our favourite images from Fountains Abbey weddings this year
We have added an additional section to our online galleries area, offering limited edition prints of various non-wedding related images. All the images are available as individual prints or as framed images and canvas wrapped images. Each image is individually signed by Charles and are limited to 100 copies of each image
Take a look at the gallery at http://www.charleshaines.co.uk/galleries/index.php?category=106
