BOOKING YOUR SHOOT
School holidays and weekends are our most popular dates, and the summer months are busiest of all, so do get in touch as soon as you can, to secure a date that works best for you.
HOW THE SHOOT WORKS
My shoots generally last about 2-3 hours and I prefer to arrive nice and early so everyone is feeling fresh and full of energy. The light is often at its loveliest first thing in the morning and we can pick outdoor locations without too many people around.
If it is raining, we'll photograph indoors and we will still get lots of lovely pictures, heading outside once the weather clears up.
I encourage your children to play games, have adventures, explore new places, dash around, and have fun. Children are such a pleasure to photograph as they are such imaginative and energising spirits – I find myself involved in wild games, searching for dragons, racing to and fro, jumping around, climbing trees - a mix of crazy activities. The best pictures happen when when everyone is enjoying themselves, caught up in the moment.
By starting our shoot early in the morning, we will have plenty of time to take pictures without feeling rushed, allowing time for snack breaks for the children and coffee breaks for the grown-ups.
AFTER YOUR SHOOT
A day or so after your shoot, I will be in touch to arrange your viewing session, which will take place at your home at a convenient time – I work around you and am happy to arrange viewings in the evening or at the weekend if that suits you best.
The aim of the viewing session is to show you what is possible with your photographs – I will show you the pictures from your portrait session on a large laptop screen and we will discuss multi-aperture frames and collections of framed prints. I will provide you with a starting point for your decision-making process, and my clients always find this incredibly helpful.
By having the viewing session in your home, I can better advise you on which pictures in which size will look best in your home, and give you a few ideas that you perhaps wouldn’t have previously considered.
I will show you around 100 images which have been carefully selected and edited by me. These will include a variety of family pictures, individual portraits, action shots, and images of your family playing together and interacting.
At your viewing session, you will also see samples of our unframed and framed fine art prints, canvases and modern acrylic mounts to help you choose how you would like to present your pictures. Please refer my prices and products page for more information about all the options on offer.
AN EFFORTLESS AND ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCE
Like every aspect of my business, I make the process of choosing your images clear and simple and by the end of your viewing session, you will be sure that you have made the right choices.
Your order will be placed the next day, delivered within 4-6 weeks, and I will contact you in advance to arrange a convenient time for delivery.
If this sounds like the sort of effortless and enjoyable family photography experience you would enjoy, then please call on 07515 723 699 to discuss your requirements - I would love to hear from you.
