New photography studio to open this Autumn

I will very soon be opening a new photography studio which will become the permanent and official home of Sandra Cullen Photography.

I’ve literally been bursting to tell you about my plans for several months now. But finally, with a move-in date confirmed, it’s all starting to feel real!

So, why the move to a new photography studio?

Well, if you know me or have used me as your portrait photographer before, you’ll know that up until now I’ve been a mobile photographer.

I’ve been providing professional portrait photography services for several years, photographing clients and their children in their own homes across south east London and Kent.

And I just love capturing the unique personalities of your little ones and recording some of the most important moments in your family’s life.

But while being a mobile portrait photographer in the Greenwich area has been wonderful and has given me great flexibility (and, truth be told, has kept the overheads of my business down), I’ve been yearning for something more permanent.

Why now?

Well, the word has been spreading about my portrait photography over the past twelve months or so.

I’ve been getting busier and busier and so it seems the right time to commit to a photography studio.

What are the benefits of the new photography studio?

With a new photography studio, I will be able to serve more clients (I’ll be spending less time traveling around south London and more time behind the camera). Which will bring lots of benefits for my clients too!

More convenient for you

Firstly, you’ll no longer need to worry about preparing your home for your photo session or have to move furniture around in order to create the space I need to work in!

A more streamlined experience

Secondly, portrait sessions will be quicker since I won’t be needing to set up my equipment each time – everything will be setup ready for when you arrive at the studio.

Shorter photo sessions

For this same reason, I anticipate that newborn sessions, which usually take several hours, will become quicker. Since I will have space within the new photography studio to have two setups ready, the transition between shots will be easier and the process will be smoother and faster overall. (Which means more cuddle time for you and baby after the session!)

More choice for you

Having the new photography studio will also allow me to offer a greater variety of portrait sessions, so there will be more choice for you.

I’ll be expanding the range of services I offer as well as introducing new packages and special offers going forward. For example, I’ve plans to offer maternity sessions at a special price for clients booking in conjunction with a newborn photoshoot. Watch this space for more details!

Where is the new photography studio?

The new Sandra Cullen Photography studio will be at Thames Side Studios, Trinity Wharf, Harrington Way, Warspite Road, Royal Borough of Greenwich, London, SE18 5NR.

There will be plenty of free customer parking outside the studio.

When will the new photography studio open?

I get the keys on October 1st and will be making it my own for a couple of weeks. My plan is to officially launch and open the studio in mid-October.

After that, all future portrait sessions – whether maternity, newborn, older baby or child or cake smash – will be held at the studio. I will no longer be offering mobile photography.

What will the new photography studio be like?

The new photography studio will be a cosy, warm and welcoming place for you and your children.

It will be custom-designed, complete with comfy seating, refreshments and all the facilities that you could possibly need during yours or your child’s photoshoot.

My intention is to create the studio in a way that makes your entire time with me enjoyable and relaxing. Your photography experience should be wonderful, and it’s my intention to ensure that it is!

So, will you be visiting my new photography studio? I hope you will!

I’ve been dreaming of having a permanent studio and finally, that dream is becoming a reality. So, as you can imagine, I’m really excited about this next step in my business journey and really hope that you will be part of it.

I’m so looking forward to welcoming clients, old and new, to my new photography studio and hope to see you there very soon!

Up-coming photo sessions available to book now

I’m already taking bookings for sessions in the new photography studio so get in touch today to confirm your portrait date and time.

In November, these will include my Christmas mini sessions. These are great value, and are a chance to get up-to-date family portraits for use on personalised Christmas cards or to give as Christmas gifts!

Plus, I am offering Autumn photo walks which are a great opportunity to capture relaxed family portraits in the great outdoors.

Special rates apply for early bookings and to those who book both sessions!
