About Oh So Portraits

Hi, I am a graphic designer with 30+ years of professional experience behind me. Although my dream as a child was to look after all the unwanted animals and run my own rescue centre, my logical side realised that I needed to have an alternative plan and that turned out to be a graphic designer!

For the last 15 years I have worked with my husband in our own company, Consortium Design and Print.  During this time I took up photography as a hobby. I became obsessed very quickly and there is nothing more relaxing for me than to be standing on a hillside, camera all set up, waiting for the sun to rise while watching the ebb and flow of mists below me.

My passion for photography eventually lead me into the world of pet photography. It was a bit of a light bulb moment as I was at a talk by a horse photographer and I realised I had never properly photographed my own gorgeous Staffy (something I will always regret).

Three years down the line and I am still enjoying my life as a professional pet photographer but my love of design has never diminished. As a result I have set up a separate company, 'Oh So Design', with the idea of designing greetings cards. It was while I was experimenting in Photoshop with a 3D paper effect that I decided to combine this love for graphic design with some images of the dogs and cats I had photographed. 

Feedback from friends and family was instant and inspiring. Now I have a Fine Art style range called 'Oh So Portraits' that has legs to progress from pets to other popular animals like Sloths and Llamas and perhaps even children. This is a range that I am going to have so much fun working on over the coming months and years.

I am delighted that you have taken the time to visit my site and find out about me. I hope you enjoy browsing my shop. If you have any questions regarding my designs don’t hesitate to drop me an email at jackie@ohsodesign.co.uk
