We’ve Moved!

Jun 14, 2012 | Uncategorized

Those of you who follow Pennycress on Facebook will know, over the past couple of weeks we have been setting up a new studio space.

As the days were warming up back in April it became obvious that my little conservatory studio on the rear of my house was not going to be workable for all the sessions I have over the summer. I started investigating different options from roof blinds to renting a small space for the summer. I went to view disused shops, little flats, rooms above offices and even a converted garage but couldn’t  find anything that had good parking, easy access for my clients AND the light I need for the gentle newborn sessions…

I contacted an agent about a space up for rent in Norwich centre and he convinced me that he had the perfect space for me a bit further out but close to home in Wymondham, always a sucker for sales patter I agreed to go and have a look!

As Simon and I arrived through the gates we were very impressed, good parking- tick!  We walked up to the main entrance into the entrance hall and my tummy did a little flip! “Wow!”  The hall has been renovated to keep many of its original features, once home to Group Lotus it is now divided into office suites. The agent showed us to a room in the main hall with the most awesome light and the perfect size too, I was sold!

Fast forward 6 weeks and I am all moved in, there are a couple of pictures left to hang but I am all set for my first clients tomorrow and I am so excited!!

I took a walk around the grounds today and tried to capture the spirit of our new Pennycress HQ. So… Welcome to Ketteringham Hall!…..


As well as the amazing interior and perfect studio room, the hall has acres and acres of grounds to die for. On my walk today I saw Muntjac deer, rabbits, squirrels and thousands of damsel and dragon flies. I was chatting to the caretaker and he told me there are Otters in the lake that swim in from the river that  feeds it and a herd of around 15 large Red Deer who hide in the grounds. With flower meadows, bluebell woodland, a lake and manicured gardens I really could not wish for a more perfect location to work in.  These amazing grounds mean that as well as my newborn baby photo sessions I can now do some wonderful, on site family, couple and maternity sessions. Absolutely perfect!


Hoping for a sneaky peek inside?  Here are some hints as to what you can expect from the new Pennycress studio, with comfortable sofas, posh hot choccie and scrummy biscuits I really hope you will feel as at home here as I do!

I look forward to welcoming some wonderful families, old friends, gorgeous little babies and photographers from all around the world to Pennycress’ new home.

See you soon!

Little Penny

I recently got to meet the very teeny tiny ickle Penny, she had arrived a couple of months early. I met her for her newborn portrait session when she was already about 6 weeks old but still just 5lb 4oz. Such a teeny but gorgeous little one, big brother came along too...

Logan’s Birthday Session

Logan’s Birthday Session

The very awesome little Logan came to see me recently for his 1st birthday photo session, like many of the 1 year olds I meet he wasn't too interested in eating or smashing the cake. It usually goes 1 of 2 ways, either they adore it and get stuck right in, or more...
