Kids Themed Photoshoots with ZigZag Photography

ZigZag Photography is a local photography studio based in Clarendon Park, Leicester. They recently introduced Ziglets - a themed photoshoot exclusive to 1-8 year olds and kindly invited us along to experience and review their new project. 

I was very excited to take Taylor to his first little photoshoot! At 18 months, he's a bit of a live wire, so I hoped they managed to get him to stay still long enough for a decent shot!

We were met with a warm welcome from photographer, Sammy, who I'd met previously at a local blogger event and made comfortable in the waiting area while they got the studio room ready for us. Taylor played with the wooden train set whilst we waited.

Ziglets is a special children's only shoot offering a fun afternoon of dressing up and acting out their favourite scenes. They have a collection of decorative, dramatic and delightful backdrops to choose from, including pirates, fairies, galaxy wars and much more, that children can play and pose in front of. The backgrounds are the perfect accompaniment to any outfit, smart or casual, or a full on costume. 

We were shown the selection of backdrops to choose from and decided on the football background, as we'd bought along Taylor's little Leicester City kit, plus the graffiti style background against his casual outfit. Once Sammy had set the studio up upstairs, we were invited up to get started.

Sammy was fantastic at trying to get Taylor to look at the camera, although it was hard work, I do hope he didn't stress her out too much!! ;) He was all over the place, just as I expected... Especially when we had the costume change into his football kit! He loves his football and we were all running around shouting 'GOAAAL!', trying to get him to stand in front of the football background and face the camera.

After about 20 minutes, we were shown back downstairs and given drinks while we waited for the photos to be edited. We bought along a couple of snacks for Taylor and before we knew it, we were being shown back upstairs into the viewing room to see the photos.

I was a little worried that there wasn't going to be many good ones as I felt like Taylor didn't stay still long enough! :)

I needn't have worried, Sammy had got some fantastic shots!! They were shown to us on a big cinematic viewing screen and they were just gorgeous!! It was so difficult to choose which pictures we wanted. We were super lucky to receive £100 worth of prints including a huge 16x12 print worth £50 plus their Big Value Pack, also worth £50 which includes 3 images in 4 different sizes. We also purchased a couple of extra 7x5 prints as they were all so cute!!

It was such a lovely experience, we were made to feel really welcome and comfortable and the whole thing lasted approximately an hour, which was just perfect as with small children the last thing you want is a long, drawn out process and lots of waiting around. 

We collected the photos a week later and I adore them! They're fantastic!

  5. Gorgeous! Not too badly priced either? We got majorly stung with some ridiculously priced photos when our first baby was 10 weeks. Blinded by love! Aargh! Mistake! Hate the pics now... #fartglitter

  8. Super cute. I had thought about getting some professional shots done but was worried about my wiggly lad of a similar age. Maybe should think about it anyway.
