Light Blue: Photo photography studio software updated to version 1.5

Posted in Miscellaneous at 11:02 on 31/07/2009

blogImage1Tom's been busy recently - not only has he been photographing weddings in Cambridge and London but he's been hard at work with Light Blue Software on the next version of his photography studio software.

Light Blue: Photo is a flexible studio management system for professional photographers, and the new version is such a big update that they decided to skip straight from version 1.2 to 1.5. The list of new features starts off with:

A comprehensive purchase accounts and inventory system.

An elegant integrated email system, including templates and HTML newsletter functionality.

Support for publishing your shoots to Google Calendar as well as iCal, letting Windows users join in with the calendar publishing fun.

The ability to import orders from ProSelect.

There's a whole host of other new features. You can find out more and download a free trial from the Light Blue Software website, where you can learn all about this photography studio software.

Light Blue Software is celebrating the launch of Light Blue: Photo 1.5 in its own special way. If you use the discount code 'PARTY' (without the quotes) when registering Light Blue: Photo in the next two weeks (i.e. it expires on 14 August) then you'll receive a 10% discount.

Portraits by the river

I spent a wonderful morning with Mairi and her family out and about by the Thames. We had a great time exploring the riverbank before heading back home for a while for nap time. Then out and about again for some fun in the fountains. What a wonderful way to spend the morning.

photography at the park

Posted in Kids at 17:43 on 28/07/2009

I spent a wonderful morning with Luca, Alexa and Rafe at the park. I had photographed Luca and Alexa a number of years ago now and they had both featured on my second ever website so I was really excited to go back and see how much they had grown and also to meet their little brother.

We had a great time and here are a few of my favorite images

photographing toddlers

Posted in Kids at 09:51 on 25/07/2009

I love photographing toddlers - those happy little children between around fifteen months and three years. It is such a great age for photography and always results in such fun pictures. I spent a wonderful morning with Helen and her family and here are a few favorites

Portrait photography in Suffolk

Posted in Adults at 17:41 on 21/07/2009

I was really excited to travel to Suffolk last week to take some photographs of Susan. I had heard a lot about her as she had taught my nephew last year and we had chatted on the phone so I knew it was going to be lots of fun. We had a great time chatting about everything from the garden to my nephew (and what a good boy he is of course). As we chatted we moved around the house and garden taking pictures in a nice relaxed fashion.

Here are a few of my favorites. I hope you like them.
