Update on my life! And a Giveaway!

Well lovely ladies (and the occasional gents who read my blog) a lot of you will know that Jon, the hubby, is very much into his photography and you may have noticed the odd Cross-Jones Photography post cropping up on the blog. Well big changes are coming in my/our life. We are very excited about it but it is also a little scary. Now that the wheels are fully in motion and the plans are all in place I thought I would let you all know.

Jon has decided to go self employed (me part time!) he has left the pub trade and we are launching own company. Cross-Jones Photography will be an official company as of 1st July!! For this to happen we are moving home to Neath to live with my parents for a while, so Jon can dedicate time to getting the company up and running and to help relieve a little tension on the finances while we build the company up. We will be available to shoot weddings, engagements, family portraits, head-shots, newborn, maternity, events, publicity and anything else you can think of. We almost have everything in place now, it's just a matter of promoting the business and getting our name out there.

As I will be moving this month (and that is a mammoth task!) and trying to launch a company I am sadly taking a month off blogging, but I wouldn't dare leave all of you without some great posts. So don't worry, for the month of June I have some amazing guest posts coming your way from some of my favourite bloggers. I have asked them all to do a post on the theme of 'Show Us Your Favourite...' meaning they will be telling us about their favourite bands, beauty products, holidays, clothing items, food or what ever else they want to tell you about. I hope you enjoy them.

But as I am leaving you and in honour of our new company I am also hosting a little giveaway (actually 2 giveaways, 1 now and 1 in 2 weeks time! So remember to come back). This giveaway is for 1 of 2 awesome books. 1 to fit with my blog and 1 to fit with Jon's. You have the chance to win either a Vivienne Westwood book or a Digital Photography Guide (one of Jon's favourites!)

So please don't forget to enter my giveaway and check back in on the blog as I will have a ton of brilliant guest posts for you all to read.
