Once your photo shoot date is secured I’ll email you the lowdown, with tips on what to wear and a product list and we will arrange a Planning Session. This is just a chat either in person or over the phone so we can get acquainted and you can ask as many questions as you need – this will take just 20 minutes or so.
I’d like to hear all about your family’s personalities & quirks and about what you might like to do with your images so I can tailor your shoot to your needs. We will discuss the perfect natural backdrop for you, this can be a local park, a field, your home, a beach, a town or somewhere else that holds special meaning for you.
This preparation period will help me provide a complete and personal service and ensure all goes smoothly on the day.
My lifestyle approach means sessions are relaxed and enjoyable, no frozen cheesy grimaces at the camera here! This is your time to enjoy each other and be yourselves but expect lots of chatting, snuggling and laughter in between!
You are encouraged to move and connect with each other while I guide you according to the light, using prompts for your reactions to ensure your images are unique, exciting and unlike anyone else’s. I shoot with flattering angles and natural light to capture all the authentic moments and loving connections that will unfold.
Sessions usually last 90 minutes to 2 hours, I only ever schedule one shoot a day so I can fully commit to you – so if one of you need more time to get used to the camera that’s fine, I get it. That goes for children (& sometimes even husbands!) too; now & again they will dig their heels in or have a meltdown but trust me, they always come round when they see how much fun and cuddles are to be had!
After our photo shoot we will arrange a convenient time for your Viewing and Ordering Session. In the meantime I will work hard behind the scenes to select, hand edit and perfect a minimum of 40 of your very best images in my natural yet dramatic signature style.
1-2 weeks post-shoot we will meet at your home or at a coffee shop for you to view your final images! We will pore over your beautiful images, there will be joy and possibly tears, and I’ll help you to select your collection of stunning wall art, prints, album or digital images. You’ll end the viewing session feeling confident about your selection of images, knowing where and how to display your family art pieces.
4 weeks later you will be the proud owner of luxuriously stunning products that will make visitors gasp and remind you how much you love each other every time you look at them.
