Hello my name is Karen, I am a Family and Wedding Photographer living in Warfield, Bracknell but covering the Berkshire area.
I specialise in fun Children's photography in my studio and also Newborn baby Photography.
I’ve been trying to decide for ages whether or not I should start a Blog. Will I have the time to keep it up to date, I thought? I now realise in life you have time for most things if you really want to do something & you make time!
I would love to know how many hours in my day I waste on Facebook or looking at Photos on Flickr! I’ve even been looking at Voice recognition software so I don’t have to type anything, I’m not lazy honestly!!!
In fact I’m far from it. I live in Warfield with my beautiful 6 year old Girl and I’m running my own Photography business. Karen Gray Photography Life is so busy at the moment sometimes I think I’m going a bit nuts.
I have had a very good week, at the beginning of the week I found out my panel of 20 images I sent into The Society of Portrait & Wedding Photographers for mentoring had been sent directly for Qualification & I was successful. So I am passed my Big L challenge. This means that my Images submitted were accepted as being professional standard and demonstrated my ability to create images of excellence and Licentiate of the SWPP. I was over the moon! Next will be the A challenge. Associate. Hopefully my Mentoring Sessions with Damian McGillicuddy every 10 weeks up in Cheshire will pay off!
Things are moving along slowly with my new studio premises. I don’t really want to say too much as nothing has been signed and my Solicitor is dealing with all the commercial lettings side of things at the moment. I have my first shoot outdoors on the studio grounds tomorrow (weather permitting) Let’s just say the Theme of the session is ‘The Secret Garden’ and it involves a big wooden door..
On that note I would just like to Thanks all of my Facebook fans for all your kind words of Support over the last few years.
Karen LSWPP ( I love typing that!)
