Unless you're a photographer...Step forward Elise at Photo Times

Photographers get all of the fun don’t they? The stressed bride, the truculent child, the dog that won’t sit for an age before piddling on the floor. We’ve written about photographer Elise before and have wanted to visit Photo Times in Finedon. So to avoid having any pictures taken of ourselves, yet still get a sneaky peak, we took along Muddy Paws, aka Stella. There’s no such thing as a daunting photoshoot at Photo Times as Elise will put you at ease straight away (even the pooches). She was like the dog whisperer and Stella was eating out of her hand in seconds (admittedly, the treats helped)! The session went in a heartbeat and the resulting pics were great, especially considering we were only shooting for around 20 minutes. Elise’s first love is maternity, newborn and under 5s, but she mixes it up with the furry bears and grown ups too.

Sessions cost £100 and last between 1-2 hours; this price includes a pre-session consultation, preparation tips, professional hair and make-up, a 7″ framed desktop portrait of your choice and an in-person viewing appointment (we think this is superb value for money).

Elise is currently looking for 1-2 yr olds for Cloud and Baby face mini sessions –  a 20 minute session for just £20 and it includes a digital image of your choice – book here if you’ve got a tiny terror.

Also if you have littlies starting school or a new term in September you can capture their First Days forever (contact Elise here). She is professional, friendly and very reasonably priced (and we suspect is a bit of a baby whisperer too)!
