What is an on-location family session?
An on-location family photo session means that we choose an outdoor location together for your photo session. We go for something that suits your family – are you beachy? Do you like forest walks? I have a number of gorgeous local locations that I use on a regular basis, so there’s plenty for us to choose from.
What happened if the weather is bad or my children are ill?
Life sometimes throws us a curve ball and so I’m very used to rescheduling sessions. If the weather is bad or your child wakes up with a bug, it’s no problem at all to postpone. I normally get in touch a day or so before your session to confirm arrangements once I’ve checked the weather forecast. If you need to reschedule with me because of illness, then just let me know as soon as you can.
I am worries about how much it’ all going to cost?
I understand that booking a family photo session is a luxury and you want to make sure that your money is well spent. I work on a package basis, which means that all clients choose one of my available packages.
I’m very up front about my pricing. There are no hidden extras or added costs at all. And after a chat about your needs, I am able to send you a few package options that suits you best.
How long will it take to receive my prints or products?
Prints normally take around a week to arrive. I’ll get in touch with you as soon as they are ready.
If you have ordered an album or a frame, it may take a little longer. All my products are handmade at a professional photo lab. They normally take between 2-3 weeks.
What is a personal branding photo shoot?
A personal branding shoot is a photoshoot tailored to you and your business. Each session is bespoke and created and styled to fit your brand. Sessions can take place at indoor and outdoor locations at any time of year.
When are you available?
If you’d like to find out my availability, please drop me a line and I’ll get straight back to you.
I am not very comfortable in front of camera, will you help?
Yes. Please don’t worry. Most of my clients feel uncomfortable at the thought of having their photo taken but they are all surprised at how much they enjoy their shoot. I will gently guide you throughout the shoot and choose the best poses and lighting.
Will you use photoshop to remove wrinkles or make me look slimmer?
I work on each image individually and will use Photoshop to remove temporary blemishes and sometimes will smooth skin a little. I will never make dramatic changes your appearance. It’s common for clients to ask for certain changes – the odd nip and tuck here and there and I’m happy to oblige. If you have any specific requests, please let me know. And no, I can’t make you look 10 years younger and remove 2 stone.
How long will it take to receive my retouched photos?
You will receive your photos within 2 weeks. If you have an urgent request for a faster turnaround, just let me know.
How do I book a session?
Please get in touch with me, either via email – [email protected] or through my contact page.
Once we’ve made contact, I’ll arrange a time to give you a ring for a chat about everything and I can answer any questions you have and, if you like, book a date in the diary.
I don’t know what to wear, can you help?
Yes! I’m happy to chat through options with you and share ideas. I can advise on what looks good on camera and give you a list of things to avoid too.
However, please note that I’m not a stylist, hairdresser or make-up artist and if you need help in those areas, it might be worth chatting to a professional.
