We were looking for some new publicity photos for social media and advertising. I came across Kelly Jo Photography whilst browsing on my phone, and especially liked her website and that she was locally based. So we decided to talk her through the sort of ideas and shots we were thinking of instead of going with our usual typical portrait format. We are very experienced in performing live music – entertaining an audience of all sorts, but we were slightly out of our comfort zone on this project! However, Kelly Jo quickly put us at ease & the shots on our new website are proof, creating pictures which capture our personality & style; being a really important factor

Jenny & Steve

An early start (well for a musician that is!) we headed off to The Stag Inn at Mentmore, near Leighton Buzzard in Bedfordshire, where Graeme & Gary very kindly allowed us to borrow their unique venue, set in this beautiful village. It was a bright sunny morning – a bit chilly but very cosy inside and as ever, a warm welcome plus the coffee pot was on which always helps. A huge special thanks to them both, for putting up with us whilst lots of different shots were set up in each of the contrasting rooms. Decorating had taken place since we last popped over and the atmosphere is incredible – it’s such a lovely old building with lots of character but of course, they’ve put their flair all over it and it’s just great.  There are a few stags about of course! Can’t wait to get back over there and enjoy one of their lush meals.

So after a few costume changes and makeup retouches, we begin to chit chat and find out we have a few things in common, and conversation replaces our nerves as we relax into the session. Amongst tons of clothes bags, makeup boxes, jackets, jewellery, boots and shoes, Steve’s selection of guitars sprawl across the floor offering an assortment of colours and shapes, but we forgot to include the mandolin! Like anything new you start to enjoy, you can’t help but begin to want more of it and suddenly it was time to hand back this amazing venue to its rightful owners.

What a fabulous day!  We really enjoyed it! So much fun! A big thank you to the brilliant Kelly Jo – thank you so much for your professional and friendly service. When are we doing the next lot?!

Ready to show off the new website now which we are so pleased with, courtesy of Nocrus Ltd. Many thanks, guys.

Ready to go & get the diary booked up for 2018.
