About Oh So Portraits

 

Jackie Robinson

 

Hi, and a very warm welcome to my site.

I am a graphic designer with 30+ years of professional experience. I took up photography as a hobby when I started working in my own design company, just to get me away from the computer for a few hours and de-stress. I became obsessed very quickly and there is nothing more relaxing for me than to be standing on a hillside, my camera all set up and waiting for the sun to appear while I watch the flowing mists down in the valley.

This passion eventually lead me into the world of pet photography. It was a bit of a light bulb moment as I realised I had never properly photographed my own gorgeous Staffy girl before she passed away and this is something I will always regret. Three years down the line I am still enjoying my life as a professional pet photographer but I love graphic design!

So I set up 'Oh So Design' with the idea of bringing out a range of greetings cards. It was while I was experimenting in Photoshop with a 3D paper cutout effect that I came up with the idea of adding a dog I had photographed as a focal point. I loved the look! Wouldn't this be a great idea to get people's favourite images stored and forgotten on a phone or computer printed out and seen everyday? By sending me your own photos I can turn them into a picture that is simply unique and will give you pleasure for many, many years.

I hope you enjoy browsing my shop. If you have any questions regarding my designs, or have something in mind that isn't listed, don’t hesitate to drop me an email at jackie@ohsodesign.co.uk
