New website and new offers.

We have been in our Coxhoe studio for 2 years now and business is going very well. Catering for a wide range of people has proven to be a great idea. Our family friendly attitude and sensible price structure has seen people come along and have a great experience without the fear of daft prices some photographers dream up. 

Our new website is proving very popular with the number of views going up each day. We have tried to make the visitor experience as easy as possible. We have also listed a couple of offers plus we have included our very popular super saver sharing offer which is designed to share with family and friends.

We will be adding to our product range too with some exciting additions plus a new range of Prints only options. If you are looking for a photography company where customer satisfaction is the only objective then go to and see what we can do for you.

Thanks to Matt at Sedgefield Web Design for his sleepless nights and amazing results. If you need a website you can get in touch with him at

Thanks for reading the blog.

Winter Wonderland mini Photo-Shoots 2015

Winter Wonderland 2015 at Inkspot Photography

The studio was transformed into a Winter Wonderland and a themed photography area was set up for our guests. The first day sessions were completely sold out in less than 12 hours. People travelled from around the northeast, as far as Jesmond and Darlington. We were well prepared and had allowed time enough for each mini photo-shoot. Photos were viewed instantly and the chosen images were printed in our super sized 9x6 inch printer. The studio was buzzing and it definitely felt like Christmas had arrived. The place was full of laughter and people chatting. A short video of the day can be found here;

The following is a selection of reviews and comments left on our Facebook page;
5* Great staff with a friendly and warming welcome. Not only that, but the photos we got were absolutely fabulous. Very accommodating for us. Shall be back again soon. Chris Stockhill

Mini Christmas Photo-Shoots


We created a Christmas themed mini photo-shoot event  for the 5th December. We thought we had 2 weeks to generate interest for the event. Our marketing plan was to consist of Twitter, Facebook and a poster at the studio inside the Party Forever shop in Coxhoe. What we did not expect was once the Facebook event was created the full days bookings sold out within 12 hours. This fantastic response prompted us to release a second date. We again created an Facebook event and were overwhelmed with bookings. Every place was booked within 20 hrs and we have several people who have expressed disappointment and asked to be contacted should anyone cancel. 

As a thank you to everyone who booked we have decided to run a free competition from the photos of each day. The 2 winners will receive a free 18x12 print of their winning photograph plus a free Photo-Shoot in the new year. 

The competition is for the best dressed, Christmas themed photograph. So if you want a chance to win this great prize simply bring your child/children dressed for Christmas. The photos will be independently judged. For your entry to be submitted you must also have liked our Facebook page. This can be found at

Cake Smash Sessions now available!

Cake Smash Party

We recently held a cake smash photo-shoot at our Coxhoe studio. It was for Leila's 1st birthday. Prior to the cake smash we photographed her on her own and with Mam and Dad. The family photos went very well and produced some awesome images. Then she was changed into a tutu,  mam had brought for the session. She had a great time breaking into the cake and eating as she went. The end result was a destroyed cake with a very messy and happy young lady. The resulting images have quickly become very treasured memories. Our Cake Smash sessions are perfect for 1st and 2nd year birthdays. If you would like further details of our cake smash sessions please email You can also ring Sue on 07841676876 for more information.
