Capture The Magic Of A Family Day Out In London

Capture The Magic Of A Family Day Out In London

With the summer holidays just beginning, it’s time to start thinking about how you’re going to spend some quality time as a family over the coming weeks and make the most of the (hopefully) sunny weather.

London is one of those cities that literally has something for everyone and it’s a great choice for families looking for a day out whether you plan to hit some museums, hang out in a beautiful park or just see some of the capital’s iconic landmarks.

You may even want to plan some time with a family photographer in London to capture some snaps of you and your kids out and about in the big smoke.

Making the photoshoot part of your sightseeing activities could not only be fun, but also mean that you get some wonderful family snaps with the striking London skyline in the background.

The Metro recently offered some advice to parents who are planning to head into London with their kids during the school holidays this year.

According to the newspaper, South Kensington is a great area to explore, as it’s home to three of the city’s top museums. The Science Museum, Natural History Museum and V&A are all found here.

The publication also recommended taking some time to explore one or more of London’s green spaces, noting that these can give you a welcome break from the crowds.

However, it suggested that you avoid Oxford Street unless “absolutely necessary” and that you venture down one of the side streets around Leicester Square to find a place for lunch, rather than heading to one of the pricey restaurants on the square itself.

Top Tips To Boost Your LinkedIn Profile

Top Tips To Boost Your LinkedIn Profile

Many of us have LinkedIn profiles, which can be really useful for networking, job hunting and keeping on top of industry developments.

However, like all social media there are ways of optimising your profile and for LinkedIn, where being found is just as important as the network of contacts you already have, it becomes even more important.

Whether you’re looking for a new job, are a freelancer or just want to make sure you stay in touch with others in your sector, LinkedIn can be a highly useful tool. CNBC recently offered some top tips for making your profile stand out from the crowd.

Writing for the news provider, Erica Breuer revealed that there are three things you should do to make the most of the networking site. First up is personalisation – not only when you initially make contact, but when someone endorses you for a skill, or when you congratulate them on a work anniversary.

Her second tip is to make sure you use LinkedIn for more than just job hunting. Even if you’re happy in your current role it’s still worth commenting, sharing and being active on the site if you can.

Ms Breuer’s third tip is to make connections within your network. That means linking people up if you feel they could help each other in a professional context. “They’ll see the value you’re adding to their networks – and want to add more value to yours, too,” she asserted.

Of course, you also need to think about your photo and what kind of image that presents of you and your business. Earlier this year, Refinery29 offered some advice about getting your LinkedIn profile picture right, with one of the best pieces of advice to make sure your picture looks natural and not too forced or corporate.

If you feel as though your LinkedIn profile needs an overhaul, consider paying a portrait photographer in London to capture some great headshots for you that really bring out your personality in a professional way.

Would You Consider Hosting A Wedding At Home?

Would You Consider Hosting A Wedding At Home?

With the cost of getting married going up and up, a growing number of couples are looking for ways to reduce the expense of tying the knot and one option is to have the wedding party at your home – or the home of a generous family member.

Writing for the Huffington Post, the founder of Weddingplanner.co.uk Robin Well offered some advice for couples planning to go down this route.

He explained that there are certain things you need to consider when you’re organising a home-based wedding, including making sure you notify the neighbours in good time to prepare them for the noise and influx of guests, and thinking carefully about things like toilets, parking and electricity.

Hiring a portaloo or two could be one option if you don’t feel that the house has enough toilet facilities, Mr Well suggested.

When it comes to services you’ll be bringing in, he recommends getting your suppliers to visit you at home well in advance of the wedding. You might want your wedding photographer in London to scope out locations for those group shots, or your caterer may need to think about how they can work out of your kitchen.

Having other people come in to look at your space can also help flag up any issues you may not have thought of, especially as the suppliers will be viewing your home from a professional perspective.

Given that the average UK wedding costs around £25,000, and in London the average stands at £38,000, opting for a home wedding could be a great way to bring down the costs while also making sure your big day is truly personal to you.

Doing A Colour Run? Hire A Social Event Photographer!

Doing A Colour Run? Hire A Social Event Photographer!

Sometimes, just sometimes – even in the days of the mobile phone – hiring a London event photographer is a complete necessity. This is especially true if you’ve signed you and your group of friends up to do a colour run, one of the most fun activities you can do – and certainly one of the most worthy of being captured on film.

Quite simply, colour runs – which take place all over the UK throughout the year – involve running 5k or thereabouts in white clothes and charging through lots of powdered paint on your way around the course. You get absolutely covered in paint from head to toe and finish with a massive smile on your face!

Yes, you can run for time if you’re a competitive runner but colour runs are usually about fundraising and having a brilliant time, so don’t worry if you don’t think you’re good at sport or aren’t at your peak of fitness. You can take as long as you want to complete the course and however long you do it in, you’ll have the time of your life.

Because there’s so much paint going around – and there’s a huge paint party for the finishers at the end – there are some amazing photo opportunities throughout the day. You probably won’t want to take your phone on the run with you in case it gets covered in paint, so hiring a photographer in London would be a great idea. They’ll be able to capture all the fun for you and you’ll have some amazing photos to stick on the wall afterwards.

4 Ideas For Your Kid’s Birthday Party

4 Ideas For Your Kid’s Birthday Party

Birthday party planning for your children is an awful lot of fun – but let’s be honest, there’s a certain element of competition there as well, isn’t there? You want your kid’s party to be the best in the entire class, one that makes other parents feel they have to raise the bar a bit with their own party planning! So to help you get the jump on the rest, here are some top trends for kids’ parties you might want to consider.

Wonder Woman

The movie of the moment has to be Wonder Woman so what about throwing your youngster a superheroine party? You could all head off to watch the film (as long as they’re over the age of 12, of course) then make your way back to your house for a themed party – check out Oprah Winfrey’s own Wonder Woman party for a few ideas!

Monochromatic decorations

In days gone by, it was the norm to make birthday parties as colourful as possible, but these days parents are opting for a bit of black and white with their decorations instead. If you plan ahead properly, you’ll end up with some seriously stunning photos from your London event photographer.

Neon

While monochrome is a big trend at the moment, on the other side of the coin we’ve got neon – amazing fluorescent colours that would be perfect for a seriously fun and exciting shindig.

Hawaiian

This is a fab theme for a birthday party since it’s perfect for both boys and girls. You could go crazy with the decorations and have huge ferns decorating the room and the tables, and food couldn’t be easier with lots of pineapple, fruit salads and tropical juices.
