Boudoir & Makeover Photography

If you're looking for some beautiful images for yourself or your partner then why not experience one of our boudoir or makeover shoots?

We specialise in beautiful natural feminine shots, not cheesy, awkward poses. We'll use clever light and camera angles along with high end magazine quality retouching to make you look amazing!

Our packages can be fully tailored to you needs and we can supply you with prints, digital images, canvases, albums, frames and anything else you can think of having your photos on!

It's up to you whether you use our make up artist or do you own.

You have the choice of a female or male photographer and there are complimentary drinks and snacks throughout your session!

So why not indulge yourself? Packages start at just £200.

We're based in Ashington, Northumberland, within easy reach of Newcastle upon Tyne, so give the studio a call - 01670 813007 - and book your session today!

10% off any packages and additional artwork for all sessions booked during  November!

The boudoir area of the studio is upstairs
and offers many different angles and 'looks' for your shoot.

Back them up!

Anyone that's spoken to me in the studio knows that one of my biggest moans is people not backing up or printing the photos they take.

It's never been easier to take a photo, most kids have phones with cameras built in; and point and shoots have got to a price where they're almost a disposable item!

But how many of you bother to back up the images? 

Those of you feeling smug that you've copied them on to your laptop or PC can wipe the smile off of your faces! Ever experienced a hard drive failure?

External hard drives are so cheap, as are blank CDs. Please buy one or the other (or both) and copy your images to them AS WELL as your laptop or PC.

Or, go retro! Print your images and put them in an album (or shoebox, or anywhere they're safe) for future generations.

It would be a shame for the generation that has the easiest access to photography, to grow up and not be able to show their kids their grandparents!

As I feel so strongly about this, we've decided to extend our Family Generations photo offer up until we close for Christmas. The details are in the image below, but basically you bring as many family members for a group photo as you like and EVERYONE gets a 12"x8" copy of the chosen photo, even the youngest members, so that in years to come they can look back at the whole family. The price? £75.  
Normally 12"x8" prints are £20 each, so even a session with just four family members will save money!

Book yours now, but before you do, please go and back up your own photos!!

Latest news!

Frame prices slashed!
We were already the most reasonably priced photography studio in the North East (and probably the country!) and now we've reduced the prices of all our framed photos, not just by a small amount, but by up to 30% ! 

This means you could get a photo shoot and HUGE 38"x28" framed montage of 10 images for just £350!! 

AND when we say framed we mean a real wood frame with a deluxe deep set bevel mount. Not a cheap plastic frame as seen in other studios in the region!

Cute Kids Competition
There's still time (just!) to enter our competition with a prize worth £700. The closing date is Thursday 31st October, so call Kerry NOW to book your session - 01670 813007.

Creative Nights!
We now run a fortnightly evening event for photographers, models, make up artists and anyone else interested in creating great images in the studio.

All abilities welcome, this is a great chance to network and portfolio build.

The next session is Friday 1st November 7:30pm - 10:30pm. The cost is just £5 per person to cover refreshments.

For further information call Simon in the studio or check out our facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/groups/194030367445724/

Amazing October Family Offer, NOW EXTENDED!

In these days of modern technology it’s never been easier to take a photo.  But unfortunately very few people back-up their images or get them printed.

This generation of kids will most likely grow up with very few family photos they can show to their kids and grandchildren!

So, here at Loud and Flashy we’ve come up with a deal that will ensure your great grandchildren will have photos of their relatives!

Bring 3 generations of family members to the studio for a photo shoot and every person in the photo will get a 12”x8” copy of the family picture! No limit to how many people (as long as they can all fit in the studio!).

All for just £75.   That’s the total price, NOT per person!

Due to the popularity this incredible offer will now run until the 30th November, so hurry and book your session as spaces are going fast!

These make a fantastic Christmas present!!

Call the studio to book your session NOW!

Our regular photo sessions - what you get.

Some photography studios offer free shoots and then expensive photos. Others give a voucher for a tiny picture which you can use to upgrade to expensive frames.

At Loud and Flashy we like to be a bit more transparent!

Our regular photo sessions are £50.  

You get an hour in our Ashington, Northumberland studio for a fun photo shoot.

Your images can be viewed straight away or you can look online later, it's up to you, but there's no hard sale!

Included in the session is a 12"x8" retouched photo in a 2" mount (glass size 16"x12") set in a beautiful wood frame with a choice of finishes. Compare this to the postcard sized image other studios offer!

What you get included for the £50 photo session (not the gold chair!).

Choice of colours!

If you want any additional images from your session, loose prints start at just £15 for anything up to 10"x8" and there's no minimum order!

We also provide a huge range of ways to display your artwork including canvas wraps, frames, acrylic blocks, aluminium panels etc.

So if you want a family portrait, come to the studio where you'll get a big enough picture to put on a wall and still see the people in it!

Book your regular priced session now and quote 'Blog' and we'll even give you a further 10% off anything else you order!

Call Kerry - 01670 813007 now!

We had a little staff trip to another photography studio today!  It's always nice to see what the competition are up to, however, we were a little bit disappointed!

The frames in their window resembled clip frames you'd buy in Ikea!  Not that there's anything wrong with Ikea clip frames, it's just that knowing how much this studio charges for them I'd want a more substantial frame for the money!

However, inside their studio was even more disappointing!!

They had a panoramic frame with three images which was more the standard of frame you'd expect from a studio. But when I asked how much it would be they replied 'it's been made to a customer's specifications and we can't really give a price'! They went on to say 'photo sessions are free and you just pay for the pictures you want'.   However, they don't have a price list you can look at!!

Now is it just me or does this seem an extremely odd way of selling something?  You wouldn't go to a supermarket and load your trolley with goods you didn't know the price of!

Here at Loud and Flashy photography we have a price list that we give to anyone that comes in to enquire about what we do!  We do this because we're not embarrassed by it, the prices are sensible and the products such as frames and canvases are the best you can get at any studio in the country!

We're also happy to sell loose prints for you to frame yourself and have no minimum order value!

So, if you want fantastic images, presented in the best frames at the best prices (that you already know before you come for the session!) call us today - 01670 813007.
