Latest KAD News...
KAD IS TAKING A BREAK ….
Good morning everyone!
crazy year of balancing KAD and Piper (i.e motherhood) AND in
preparation for baby number two, I have made the difficult decision to
temporarily close KAD Photography from June 2019 (excluding bookings
already made!) until 2024.
I need to put my ‘all’ into everything I do and in the past year it has been a struggle to do this. It is extremely important to me that KAD provides the best possible service to all my wonderful customers and this is the main reason I have made this decision.
I am hoping to return in 2024 - BIGGER (fingers crossed with someone joining the KAD team!), full of motivation, inspiration, determination and able to spend the amount of time on KAD that KAD deserves!
a) if you have a KAD voucher please contact me immediately to get booked in before June and
b) if you wish to order anything from a shoot/wedding, please do this
as soon as possible as I will not be able to fulfil orders after June.
KAD's Facebook page will continue with photos of the 2019
weddings/shoots already booked and also, thanks to an ever growing
family, plenty of baby/toddler/family shoots (to keep me in practise!) So please make sure you follow KAD on facebook and/or instagram!
And finally, I’d like to thank each and every one of you for your
custom and support. Without you KAD Photography would not be the
success it is. I remember being so scared to go self employed 7 years
ago, and thanks to you, I have never had a moment of regret! You have
all been amazing and I am delighted to say I class many of you now as
I hope to see you all back in my diary in 2024 but until then…………keep smiling!

I have been trying not to say the C word but the enquiries are starting to fly in so here goes...
CHRISTMAS !!!! :D

the studio at the beginning of November to get through the last of my
weddings and christmas orders in time for maternity leave beginning on

christmas photo shoot as soon as possible to avoid disappointment :)
I am excited to be coming along to Portlethen's newest addition - Hillside Primary School!

That is me now closing for Christmas and New Year. I will be back in action on Monday the 9th of January. I am taking a slightly longer christmas break this year so that I can get some behind the scenes work done! I have been self employed full time with KAD Photography now for over three years, and it has been a non stop crazy busy 3 years - Which I am so incredibly grateful for! :) So KAD is definitely in need of some TLC and a spruce up! I look forward to coming back in 2017 with some imvprovements to my online portfolios, procedures and products.
I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! xxx

Friday 16th September 2016
Customers of mine who have seen me in the last 5 weeks will know that I have been suffering in silence (hmm..maybe not complete silence! I have moaned and groaned a little bit ... )with a broken wrist!! (gym injury - who said working out is good for you?!). It has been a pest and slowed me down alot the last 5 weeks with editing, but yesterday I was X-rayed and the cast has been removed! WOO HOO!
I am finally back to my usual editing pace , however it has caused a delay and Portlethen Primary School's upload date has been moved from tomorrow to Tuesday 20th of September. Apologies for the delay and thank you all for your patience over the last 5 weeks!
Friday 2nd September 2016

15th January 2014
Hope everyone had a fabulous christmas and a happy new year !! :)
As some of my customers will know my partner and I have been doing a lot of thinking about adding a fluffy pal to our family :)
In 2013 I did a lot of pets promotions, and free shoots to certain breeds so that we could chat to the owners and get to know the breeds. Now that we know 2014 is definately the year for us to get a doggie I am dog obsessed!
Which brings me to my January & February 2014 deal!
Pet's Portraiture - 1 hour photo shoot AND a 5x7 Print for ONLY £20 ! (Saving you £23!!)
This deal is not just for dogs! My studio has seen cat's and bunny rabits too! - All animals welcome And feel free to bring the kids too!
With Valentines Day and Mothers Day coming up it would be a great idea for a gift
To book in please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or call me on 01224 714266 .
At the risk of showing favouritism - The breed my partner and I have fallen in love with are Rottweilers. So I am willing to give out free photo shoots for rottweilers in exchange for a chat with the owners and 5 minutes of bosies!! (the dog, not the owners)
If you know a Rottie owner please pass the message along :)
Woops, slightly neglecting my KAD new's! My excuse is that I have been really busy! - which is fantastic :)
KAD Studio has had a makeover :) I now have a large black background (perfect for family shot's), some new backgrounds for the children and lovely new flooring ! Super excited to get stuck in and show it off to everyone!
This month I have been working with a lot of new models and make up artists, you will see photographs from these shoots in the gallery section or on KAD's Facebook
Hello everyone! Hope your wrapped up all cosy and out of the way of the snow!
Just wanted to make everyone aware of KAD's February Deal (Discounts & Deals announced on a regular basis via www.facebook.com/KellyAlisonDuncanPHOTOGRAPHY) ...
With February being the month of Valentines Day & Mother's Day being just around the corner I am discounting all hour sessions in February to only £20! Not only that, but £10 of this will be donated to SANDS Charity. SANDS is a charity very close to my heart at the moment.. A good friend of mine gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, only to have her pass away a few short hours later. It is shocking and heart breaking how common this is and after the success of my Breast Cancer charity calendar I felt I had to do something.
What better of an excuse to grab your loved ones for a photo shoot! You get memories to last a lifetime and you are helping charity at the same time!
Please contact me for more information or to book in for a photo shoot.
E X C I T I N G N E W S ! !
KAD Photography has now reached a stage where I can go FULL TIME :) I would like to thank all the people who have supported me, and my lovely customers who have helped make this happen! Very pleased that I can now focus 100% on my KAD customers, and can take on more wedding bookings!
At the end of this month I will also be moving to Kingswell's / Bucksburn area. Will have a much bigger studio so stay tuned for some excellent deals that will allow me to show it off :D Address & phone number will be announced once I am in and have my office up and running! In the meantime, photo shoots will be held at the usual spot in Portlethen.
