Berkhamsted product & pack photography: Oglee Poglee

I always love working with other local businesses, and when I started chatting to Claire who runs Oglee Poglee from Berkhamsted, I knew straight away that I wanted to work with her. Oglee Poglee is a Berkhamsted craft based business with a difference. The company is a very successful blend of craft boxes and experience based workshops and parties. Claire was looking for a photographer who would help with product photography, but also to supply some more lifestyle images which show how children really use their imagination while making things.

The beautifully designed craft boxes can be ordered through the website and sent direct for birthdays and special occasions. Each box tells a story about an Oglee Pip adventure, welcoming children into an imaginative world and encouraging each child to bring their own, unique ideas to life.

The other side of the business is running crafting workshops and parties, where children get to let their imaginations run wild! We decided to invite a number of families along to a shoot and give them an opportunity to open up and explore the Oglee Poglee products. Each box has a box, which tells of the adventures of Oglee Pip who spends his days exploring new things and going off on exciting, fun-filled adventures with his magic button. The book also includes idea for Mums and Dads ideas of the types of items they could make with the goodies in the box.

My daughter had also asked to come along to the shoot (she loves making things!) and was very excited to be told she could also choose a box and could design her own bugs and butterflies. On the way home I asked her what she liked best about the Oglee Poglee Box and she gave it a glowing review.

” I liked 2 things best. I really like Oggle Pips’ magic button which I am going to put in my jewellery box and the different coloured pom poms and the googly eyes”.  Sophie, Aged 5

As you can imagine she was very excited to find out that she will be having an Oggle Poggle Birthday Party! She is already planning her theme and guest list!

One of my favourite ways to work with families is to have an indoor/ outdoor photo session. I photographed this family in Berkhamsted, and suggested we start at home so I could get to know the boys a little better, before we headed outdoors.

I started off in the boys rooms, just chatting about what kind of things they liked, getting them to show me around their room and it turns out they both loved reading. They sat down on the bed and got their favourite books out.

We then ventured into the youngest rooms and he showed me his cot. The light was gorgeous and he also stood and waved to the trains going past…too cute!!

We then took a few relaxed family potaits in their living room (which has great light as Mum uses it for photographing newborns) and I love how the kids are laughing

I also wanted to try photographing some kind of family activity, and we decided baking could be fun!. Mum (who actually is a keen baker and photographer herself) was more than happy to let the boys get a little mucky.

After we hosed the boys down we went in search of welly boots so we could head outside. While we were locating big brothers socks (how is it that they always lose one??) Mum sat down with the youngest for a cuddle and a story.

Welly boots and socks located. we wrapped up and headed to a local park and along to Berkhamsted Canal for a few final images.
