Are you looking for the perfect valentine present? Well, look no further, because we have the ideal solution. But first, I have to say  “look away now” if  are after ‘Page 3 or top shelf glamour’ - this really isn’t the offer for you… ‘Viva Boudoir’ is much more sophisticated; much more about unlocking your inner […]

Posing a Portrait Question 2013

Serious post this. When did you last have a portrait taken? Of you, with your partner, with your family? Last December, I attended three funerals – two of which were very much ‘out of the blue’. Inevitably, that started me pondering “the meaning of life, the universe & everything”. One thought was how important great […]

Boudoir Christmas Gifts

Bored with pouting Page 3 style boudoir pictures, shot against moody black backgrounds? Well, so are we. Hollywood glamour should be fun, should be easy like a Sunday morning and should provide images that you can’t wait to show friends. If you want ‘Fifty Shades’ that’s fine but there is an alternative –  sunlight, smiles, […]

Andrew Jackson Photography & Fireworks

I know Nov 5th is rapidly becoming a distant memory, but before it fades completely, here is a quick slide show.

Andrew Jackson Photography & Christmas Vouchers

As we near the end of November, I don’t feel quite so bad using the ‘C’ word. A portrait shoot makes for a great Christmas present: the experience itself is great fun & the pictures will be fab. Forget all the “I don’t like having my picture taken” nonsense – even the most camera-shy relax […]
