Learning to love photography

From photography like this................................
to photography like this in less then 2 hours.

When it comes to taking photographs I have always been a point and click kind of a gal!

Running Life's A Celebration means that I constantly have new products being launched and sold and sometimes I need to just take a quick pic to share with Facebook, twitter, my newsletter and my blog.

I have always been acutely aware that product photography can make or break your products. A picture tells a thousand words and all that. That's why I always enlist the help of Sarah Loveland Photography for all my products shots. Like, for example, these shots below;


Sarah did a fab job of shooting all the Halloween party supplies that were included in our Halloween party boxes that I asked her if she would taking the next shots I needed for our Princess Party Boxes.

I was really impressed with the quality of Sarah's work that I asked if she wanted to take some more shots for me. Sarah also offers one-to-one photography lessons and as I'd treated myself to a new camera I decided to book myself in.
Sarah was amazing, very patient! She ran me through the camera and the basics of what I could do with it. She taught me things about depth of field, apertures, adjusting the flash and loads more. Here are some of the examples of the photos that I took in our 2 hour lesson. I have to say I'm quite impressed with myself. What do you think?


So needless to say expect lots of photographs from Life's A Celebration. We have loads of new products in the pipeline including Mother's Day bags which the children can colour in, Easter bags, wedding bags, travel bags for kids and thank you teacher bags. These will all be photographed obviously but in the meantime if you want to learn more about them then just drop me a line!

Speak to you soon my friends!





  1. They look fab Maxine, well done! It's going to be a great skill for you to have and I might even end up getting a few tips from you and Sarah myself!

  2. They look fab! What a great idea! I wish I had a decent camera...
