Having opened her studio on January 6th 2014, Lisa North celebrated her first anniversary at Magpie Court in Harleston in January 2015. Lisa has always been a passionate amateur photographer and set up her photography business four years ago. Initially Lisa ran the business alongside her massage and beauty therapy business. However, having moved in to a dedicated studio she has found that demand has been so high she is now solely focussing on photography.
Moving in to the studio allowed Lisa to expand the services she can offer. Having this dedicated space in the centre of town means that Lisa now has the facility to offer photos for passports, driving licenses and any other form of photographic identification. The cost is just £10 and Lisa will make sure the photo meets all current specifications. As Lisa’s studio is on the first floor, she offers free home visits for anyone in Harleston who may not be able to visit the studio, there is a small charge of just £5 for a home visit outside of Harleston.
Naturally, being a passionate and professional photographer, Lisa really enjoys working on large projects such as weddings. Over the last four years Lisa has established an excellent reputation and this is only growing as she dedicated all her time to photography. Lisa offers a truly bespoke service and enjoys being involved in someones special day. With her experience and local knowledge, Lisa has worked at most of the popular local venues and so has a great understanding of what will work and where the best spots are for photos. However, should Lisa be booked for a wedding at a church and/or venue that she is unfamiliar with then she will take a trip out to ensure she is fully familiar with the surroundings and where the photos will be taken.
Lisa leaves nothing to chance. These days weddings take place all year round. During spring and summer when the days are long and the light is good there are lots of great opportunities to snap away and get the perfect shot. However, unlike many photographers, Lisa also very much enjoys the autumn and winter weddings where the changing light can present fantastic one-off shots but also occasionally become a hinderance. However, Lisa travels with a full lighting set up and has spare kit for just about all eventuallities. So no matter what the weather may be doing she will still get a great shot……or album full!
The bespoke wedding package also includes a pre-wedding shoot. This will usually take place around six weeks prior to the big day and will enable the couple to become comfortable with having the photo taken as well as give Lisa a chance to get to know their personalities and what they want from the day. This is often an expensive additional charge but with Lisa it is all part of the service.
Over the course of the last 12 months Lisa has joined a number of professional organisations, one of which is the Master Photographers Association. Lisa has actually been chosen by the association as the Cherub Baby Portrait photographer for Harleston, Bungay, Beccles, Halesworth and South Norfolk. This is working in conjunction with the online parenting club Bounty. Lisa is the nominated photographer to capture your babies first year in three key stages. For just £50 you will have three studio sessions with Lisa. The first is as a newborn, the second is when your baby is sitting, and the final session is once your baby is standing. Lisa has lots of props and toys to make the shoot fun and engaging so you will get truly wonderful shots of your child. These special photo shoots are becoming increasingly popular and provide great opportunities for lovely presents for the whole family.
