2015 was an incredible year at Kim Rix Photography. I have fond memories of 2014, 2015 was even better and, I’m really excited about 2016 – bring it on!
I have my own bank of wonderful memories and loving being able to help people document their special moments. The best part of my job is working with people and making memories precious. Together, we’ve created some beautiful art products, including extra-large wall portraits, as well as luxury handmade albums and storybooks.
My monthly Headshot Photography days were a huge success – over fifty executives and business owners have a new profile portrait for their social media and web site.
I have developed a good relationship with Haven House Children’s Hospice, helping them to create marketing images for their new web site (being launched in January 2016), and it has been a pleasure working with Jessamie and Habibe at Prestigious Venues for a second year.
Photography has given me the opportunity to give to charity. I continue to work with the maternity unit at Whipps Cross Hospital, on behalf of Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep, providing the gift of remembrance photography to couples experiencing the loss of a baby.
I’ve put a lot of thought into how I’m going to make 2016 even more special for my clients.
Behind the scenes, I’m going to upgrade my own computer software and improve on my retouching skills which means my clients will receive more beautiful and timeless portraits.
I will be offering professional prints with borders. This means the print is much sturdier and protected, ready to frame. Without a doubt, prints are much better quality and look stunning with a good thick border.
Gift vouchers for family portraits have been extremely popular this year. In 2016, I am going to design and produce (in my own unique way) a luxury voucher that can gifted and redeemed for a photo session in London and Essex – either a family portrait, baby’s first birthday, boudoir or any kind of portrait or event photography.
I have just started sending my clients electronic albums for their mobile phone. It’s like an app that sits on your phone, containing the portraits that were chosen for their album or wall portrait. It’s a complimentary gift sent with my love and thanks.
But on the whole, I intend to make sure my clients receive the high-end, seamless, portrait or event photography experience that they deserve in 2016.
What would I like more of next year you ask? I think trash-the-dress shoots will become a popular trend in 2016, so I would like to speak with women who want to have some fun with their old dress. Also, there are some exquisite baby christening dresses and headbands out there which would create timeless Christening portraits. Lastly, I would love to document more children’s birthday parties. They are so much fun! Exhausting, but great fun!
A heart-felt ‘thank you’ and much love to all my clients this Christmas.
Happy New Year!
