I am finding the words so hard to find as I am overwhelmed with such sadness. Anyone who knows me, knows how much I LOVE what I do. Blink of an Eye has been my baby for over 13 years, my life and a big part of who I am.
I’ve have spent so much time growing and nurturing my business into what it is today. I’ve sacrificed so much, invested thousands upon thousands of hard earned money and devoted so much time to learning, educating and perfecting my skill. I can't believe all of this is happening and I am sending SO much love to all my fellow self-employed and business owners who are also facing such uncertain times.
As this awful virus rips through our world affecting so many lives, I feel it is absolutely essential to do whatever we can to flatten the curve, reduce the already heavy strain on the NHS and get out of this to the other side as fast as possible. I work with some of the most vulnerable of people from pregnant women, to precious tiny newborn babies to young children and families who all have extended families and I would not want to put any of you at risk. As I always say your little ones' health and safety is always my main priority.
To all clients currently booked in these coming weeks/months please don't stress. Your booking deposits are safe and will still hold your session and viewing when it is safe to do so.
Those little newborns will still be just as gorgeous and squidgy just a little bigger and those cake smashes will be an extra celebration and something to look forward to after a lovely birthday. I am hoping that this closure will not be for long and as soon as I know It’s safe you’ll all be contacted and booked in.
To clients currently waiting on viewing appointments - these will be changed to online ordering appointments. I also have had a few clients get in touch wanting to buy from previous sessions, which I appreciate so so much, I will be in touch to arrange an online ordering slot. I plan to use this time, to organise and update the studio and also help those vulnerable people who can't get out and about so if this is you and you need help with anything then give me a shout. I will have loads of free time and can nip to the shop, pharmacy etc for you.
Collections won’t be available for a couple of weeks, please get in touch and we will do our best to get your order to you as soon as we can.
Have no fear I will not be disappearing! I hope to fill your feed with some beautiful past sessions, some amazing deals for the summer/autumn, some fun competitions and share any useful resources/websites I find along the way to try and bring some light and fun at this difficult time!
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE keep supporting small businesses during this difficult and worrying time! Like, comment, share posts, enquire about sessions on offer (we won’t be closed forever!), buy a gift voucher for a session at a later date or as a gift, buy some products from a previous session, leave reviews if you haven’t done so already. If any other local businesses would like to pop a link to their page or promote anything they are offering during this time, please do so below!
And finally if anyone needs anything or just needs to chat my inbox is always open, come keep me company!
Thank you so much for reading this if you got this far! Stay safe, look after yourself and be kind and compassionate to others.
Love and Hugs
Natalie & The Blink Team
Blink of an Eye Photography
Multi Award Winning Portrait Studio
We are a family portrait studio specialising in Family, Children, Dance & Babies. We aim to capture your family memories to cherish for generations to come. Our style is natural, fun and unique with creativity and quality second to none.
Blink Studios is based in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire. The studio is beautiful and easy to get to with plenty of space for large family groups.
We (Jane and Oli) have been photographing weddings for 20 years and we love our job!
On the day we work as a team with Jane capturing the Bride getting ready whilst Oli meets up with the Groom. This allows us the ability to not only be in two places at once but also to cover different angles. We love to create artistic wedding portraits and natural reportage shots which tell the story of the day.
Most of our work comes from word of mouth from bride & grooms, wedding venues and guests who have seen us in action so please take a look at our Testimonials page for a good insight into how we are to work with.
We would love to create an amazing portfolio of images of your Cotswold Wedding so please contact us, we look forward to talking about ideas for your wedding day!
Contact Jane and Oli now to check availability for your wedding!
