Since my time at Venture I have photographed hundreds, probably thousands of babies over the years but there is nothing more adorable than a baby portrait shoot. For baby portrait shoots it is often best if I come to your home where we can do a few changes of clothes, some semi naked pics of your baby (with a towel strategically positioned!) Often all we need is some good window light, a warm floor or a bed. Sessions can last up to 2 hours so if your baby gets upset or needs feeding etc then there is plenty of time and nobody feels rushed or gets stressed!
Portrait session in your home in Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire & Berkshire are from £50 depending on your location. Portrait vouchers make great gifts for new Mums and Dads so if you know of someone who has just had a baby then why not treat them to a portrait session?

Last year I met this lovely family for some outdoor family portraits in Oxfordshire. It was a short visit for them as they live abroad but whilst here visiting family decided to get some portrait photographs done. It was a great little session and finished off with a cream tea for everyone!
Here are a few of my favourite pictures from the shoot.
To find out more about my work and see my online galleries please visit my website http://www.marklordphotography.co.uk .I currently have a portrait voucher offer starting from just £25 for a family portrait shoot in the local area of South Oxfordshire.
With signs of Spring just about showing (I’m being very optimistic!), and the phone has started to ring with people wanting to book their family portrait photography , pre wedding shoot, engagement and new born baby photography sessions in Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and beyond.
I offer outdoor family portrait photography, engagement photography or just portraits of your children playing outdoor and being themselves in my natural and relaxed style. for younger babies and children who are not yet walking it is often easier if we do the shoot in and around your home.
I shoot many portrait sessions in the local countryside around Marlow, Henley on Thames, Oxford, Thame and High Wycombe but always happy to travel further afield if you wish. With portrait shoots from just £25 my portrait vouchers make great gifts to give to your loved ones, family and friends.
Here are a lovely set of images I shot last summer in the countryside in Aston Rowant near my home with a lovely couple!

Last year I photographed a wedding at Phyllis Court in Henley on Thames for Eric and Elizabeth. They had a civil ceremony in the Ball Room with their family and friends who joined them from all over the world.
Many of the pictures I am most proud of from a wedding are the ones I capture during the service or ceremony and this set of images sum up the emotions of a happy wedding day. I’m just glad I can hide my emotion behind a camera sometimes! It’s such a privilege to be part of somebody’s most special day of their life and to be a big part of it, taking those images that will be with them for the rest of their lives.

To those that know me and my work, most of the time I am photographing things with two to four legs, people and animals are what I specialise in.
This time last year I had a call from a local marketing company after I was recommended to them by a local design company in Thame. ‘I’ve got a bit a of a challenge for you’ said the voice down the phone. ‘What do you know about biomass energy?’
Ironically I had photographed a small biomass boiler in a pub I photographed for the Princes Countryside Fund a few months before. Biomass energy is a very efficient way of heating and many businesses are using it now to heat their premises due to it being cost effective and better on the environment. I had photographed a small boiler in a shed that was heating a small country pub but apart from that my knowledge was limited. Always one to rise to a challenge I accepted this gents offer to meet up for a coffee and discuss the project. Biomass boilers run on small wooden pellets that have to be manufactured and I was asked to photograph everything from the plant in Wales where the pellets are made to a swish BMW showroom and leisure centre in Milton Keynes who use biomass energy to heat their premises.
‘It’s boring stuff’ I was told, ‘you are going to have to be creative’ and ‘I’m thinking black and white’ came with the brief. So dates were put into the diary and off we went to these various locations to photograph the world of biomass!
It was brilliant, I totally enjoyed the whole project. I have always had a design head on my shoulders, wanting to be a product designer before finding photography many years ago. I enjoy the processes involved and the way we start with this and end up with that. I will bore you no more, but biomass can be interesting (he says hesitantly….) To find out more about biomass energy here is a link to follow.
If you are looking for a photographer for any commercial photography projects then please do get in touch, I would be delighted to discuss your ideas you may have. My client was thrilled with the images and told me if i can make biomass look exciting I can probably make anything look interesting.
Here are a few of my pictures from the biomass days……
This is what I love so much about my profession. The way that one thing leads to another through referral and how one day I can be photographing a beautiful country wedding and another day a mucky old boiler. Variety is the spice of life they say. I think so!
With the increasing use of social media in the corporate and business world it is important to keep a fresh looking image of yourself for your professional profiles on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter.
I photograph many business people from different walks of life from authors to surgeons who want to keep their image up to date. I offer a simple approach to business portraits in the Henley on Thames, Marlow, Oxford and Thames Valley area, I can either come to you at your home or office or we can meet somewhere in the local area for the shoot. The shoot will last half an hour or so and I will capture a variety of relaxed but professional looking portraits from which you can choose your favourites.
With session fees from just £25 why not kick off the New Year with a new look? All images are digitally enhanced to soften lines, remove blemishes if necessary and can be supplied in colour or black and white.
It may be blowing to gale out there but we do get some beautiful days here in the Spring and Summer – honest! Here are a few family portrait pictures I shot last summer on a gorgeous day, the family owned a farm so it made sense to do the shoot on the farm. Farm yard locations for family portraits are one of my favourite locations as there is plenty to entertain the children and also some lovely backgrounds.
I offer a great family portrait shoot offer from just £25 to £75 depending on location. Why not treat your family to a family portrait voucher this year. All vouchers purchased before the 31st January 2014 will be valid until the end of 2014.
A portrait session is a great way of bringing an extended family together, can be great fun and you will have some pictures to show for it at the end.
Please call me on 01844 351218 or email me email@example.com for more information.
A couple of months ago I met one of my lovely couples, Charlotte and Robin at Wellington Riding near Reading, Berkshire. Charlotte keeps her horse there and wanted to have some pictures with him and their dog Oswald. Pirate the horse and I originate from Cornwall so we had something in common, he is definately more handsome although my nose is smaller! I love photographing people as well as animals so this session was going to be great fun and possibly challenging as Oswald and Pirate do not always see eye to eye!
It was a great session and I think we all enjoyed it, even Pirate and Oswald! Here are some of the pictures that Charlotte and Robin had in their signing book for their wedding.
