No two photoshoots are the same …
And I wouldn’t want them to be. Each family and every child has their own wonderful little quirks. By getting to know you, I produce images that truly reflect all the beauty and individuality of your family. I capture those little moments unique to you, a smile at mum a tickle by dad.
Before the shoot, I will work with you to choose the perfect location that reflects you. This may be the local woods and commons or further afield to the coast. The shoot can be as stylised as you want, from a simple shoot with coordinated clothing to a full themed shoot with props. I would love to work with you to plan the best possible shoot that truly reflects you and lasts generations to come.
On the day of the session I like to sit down and have a cup of tea with you before we start. This is because I believe it really helps you feel more comfortable in front of the camera… Plus, I really, really love tea! So I request that you please set a few hours aside for the session as I do not want you to feel rushed but relaxed. I like to let the shoot evolve naturally and above all I want to you have fun.
PORTRAIT SESSIONS FROM £75
HOW LONG DOES THE SESSION TAKE?
I ask that you set aside 2-3 hours for your session. This is so you don’t feel rushed but relaxed, enabling us to get a set of natural images that truly reflect you.
WHAT DO WE WEAR?
Co-ordinated clothing works very well. Think about any wall art you would like, and where you will hang it so it blends in beautifully with your home. Before the session I will advise you on clothing and be on hand to give you any advice where needed. I recommend bringing three changes of clothes so you get as much variety with in your photos as possible. If we are doing a styled shoot, I can help source outfits and props that would fit perfectly with our theme.
HOW DO STYLED SHOOTS WORK?
Styled shoots are designed to show all of the creativity and individuality of your child or family. The idea is to reflect your personality. If you have a little girl that loves all things fairytale, we can work with that idea to create a beautifully personalised set of images. I will have a chat with you about ideas and invite you to create a Pinterest board with me, which will be filled with ideas and inspiration. It will be based around a theme your child loves, we can utilise outfits and props that you may already have.
MY CHILD IS A LITTLE SHY. HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH THAT?
Every child is different; it’s perfectly natural for them not to feel instantly at ease. This is why I start the session with a cup of tea and chat. I am more than willing (and in fact rather like) acting a bit silly to get a giggle.
WHAT HAPPENS IF MY CHILD MISBEHAVES?
Please don’t worry. From my years working at a playscheme I’ve seen it all before! I have a few tricks up my sleeves for situations like this, and find tantrums rarely last long.
HOW LONG WILL MY IMAGES TAKE?
Your images are typically ready three weeks after your session. I will then send you a link to your own password protected gallery for you to view the images.
CAN WE USE THE IMAGES ON FACEBOOK?
Of course! Just add a link to my website or Facebook page. I rely on word of mouth so would be delighted if you share how much you love your photos.
HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?
Please contact me using one of the methods in the contact me section. From here we can have a chat to discuss your requirements and book in the session. I would love to hear from you.
