BEFORE YOUR PHOTO SHOOT
After your initial inquiries, we will discuss your requirements and I will answer any questions you may have either over the phone or via email. I will also let you know my current availability.
Your session can be held at any outdoor location of your choice or in your home or both depending on how far they are from each other. I am more than happy to help with location hunting if you are after a particular look. I understand every family has a different schedule and I will tailor your session to meet your unique requirements.
If you would like to go ahead, I will email you a contract and an invoice. Once a deposit of £50 is paid and the contract is signed, your session is booked. The balance is due a week before the session. After your booking, you will receive an information pack, which aims to help you prepare for your session and feel relaxed about it. If you have any questions after reading the information pack, please feel free to ask.
AT YOUR PHOTO SHOOT
Please show up, relax and enjoy the day! My standard family session takes about 2 hours and my baby session 1.5 hours, but I am happy to stay longer if you and your child have more energy. I would like you to feel relaxed and not to feel rushed, so I will make sure we have plenty of time to shoot with coffee or snack breaks and nappy changing times whenever needed.
I will be more or less 'invisible' while you are interacting with one another. I will be continuously capturing the natural beauty of your family without being noticed much. I am happy to do some formal shots with everyone looking at the camera, but I would encourage you and your child just to be your usual selves, be spontaneous, forget about my existence and keep playing! This will help me capture your personalities and especially, innocence, playfulness and imagination that your child has in the most natural way. Or you will find me running around with your child and being a fun play mate while taking photos simultaneously. I do this as it allows me to produce great action shots and I just naturally enjoy interacting with children. I will strive to capture your fun memories of the day and the love between you and hope the end result will be cherished for many years to come. All you need for the day is to simply enjoy yourselves!
AFTER YOUR PHOTO SHOOT
Turn around time for proofs from your photo session is 1 to 2 weeks based on types of your shoot and more likely 2 weeks at busy time. You will see around 40-70 individually retouched, print-ready, high-resolution jpeg images on a password-protected online gallery, where you make your product choices from. You can also share the link with family and friends for 2 weeks.
You can email me with your product choices and your order will be delivered within 2 weeks. You will receive a notification email when your order is dispatched.
