 Richard Arris and Helena Bakunowicz

I have known both Richard Arris and Helena Bakunowicz for the past 8 years having photographed them professionally before.

Between them they have an abundance of expertise, specialising in a discretionary investment management service working with investible assets in excess of £1.5m, aiming to provide positive returns achieved by tailoring each portfolio to the needs of the client. The investment Boutique is a trading name of Raymond James.

The independent practice was set up in November 2017 by Helena with Richard joining her in February 2018. Their new offices were found in April this year, offering the perfect setting to conduct business, with a fast rail link to central London and 6 parking spaces on site making it convenient for all their clients to relax and arrive stress free without feeling hurried.

The duo offer a bespoke and personal service covering different parts of the market. Their clients value their diversity and rightly so, they are both very approachable and ambition individuals with plans to grow their business to incorporate a financial planner and more.

On Friday 28 September I had the pleasure of photographing their launch evening to celebrate their new venture and the extensive refurbishment of the premises previously known as The Therapy Rooms. The launch was attended by clients old and new, friends and family and Cynthia Poole; Director of Relationship Management and Business Support, from Raymond James.

Guests were given a tour of the spacious building and enjoyed delicious canapés and Bollinger, finishing the evening with a group photograph outside the premises and a big thank you from Richard for everyone’s support.

Wishing Richard and Helena all the very best. The Investment Boutique business is a real asset to our town, if you would like to know more please get in touch with them on 01883 708340, to read about their investment philosophy click here.

Christmas is Coming - Spoil the Ones You Love

SMS_201810_Place_3.jpg

With only 12 weeks to go until Christmas Day now is the time to either book to have your family photographed to give beautiful photographs to loved ones as a gift, or to buy them a gift voucher, so they can redeem it against a fabulous experience in the new year for one of our locations photo-shoots.

Depending on the time of year, they can choose from a variety of different locations, including their own garden if they wish. The places we currently photograph at are — the woodlands during spring time when the bluebells are abundant, a stunning private meadow for a brief period of time during the summer, an exclusive and tranquil vineyard from March to November, or the woodlands during autumn and winter time, to capture the golden light and burnished cooper colours.

With all this to look forward to a gift voucher is a fun experience for all the family to enjoy next year. Or now that we are officially in autumn and if you are ready to enjoy a family photo-shoot, then please call us at the studio to book your woodland shoot or to order a personalised Christmas gift voucher on 01883 722282.

Woodland Photo-Shoots

SMS_201809_People_6.jpg

With the festive season rapidly approaching our thoughts move towards the woodlands at autumn time, when they are ablaze with rich copper colours and red tones. I love the rustle of the fallen leaves underfoot and the texture and vibrancy of the bracken glistening in the afternoon light, the perfect light for portrait photography.

This is another one of our exciting seasonal location photo-shoots to gather your family for an enjoyable experience, capturing precious family time in carefully crafted photographs to admire and treasure each and every day. An ideal Christmas gift for grandparents and other loved ones.

To find out more about your woodland photo-shoot please visit our website here and do get in touch to book yours on 01883 722282.

Vineyard Photo-Shoot Update

SMS_201808_People_5.jpg

I always look forward to photographing in different locations during the changing seasons, and this August was no exception in this picturesque vineyard! 

With exclusive access to this local gem steeped in history, I recently photographed this lovely family, whom I had previously photographed in the bluebell woods when the boys were much younger, they were looking for something a little different to update the pictures on their wall and to mark a particular milestone in their lives.

I think you'll agree the results speak for themselves!  

This vineyard is perfect for photo-shoots right until harvest time in October, when the vines are laden with fruit.

If you haven't already booked your photo-shoot do get in touch, it could be just what you have always wanted to do, or treat someone special to a fun experience with results to remember it by and to treasure.
