what to expect

If you like my style of photography and would love to have some photos taken then please get in touch for a friendly chat. I can talk you through different options and answer any initial questions you have. There is absolutely no pressure! If you decide to book a session, that’s great – we can agree a date and, once a deposit has been received, I will confirm everything by e mail.

Getting ready.
Once your photo shoot is booked in, I will telephone you about a week beforehand to chat through how the session will run. I can answer any questions you have such as what to wear (most asked question!) and what you need to bring as well as deciding on a location and timings. Generally speaking, most of my shoots take place in the mornings. Most importantly, I use this call to find out all about your family and what your children are like; their personalities, any hobbies, pets, favourite ice cream flavour and other important and necessary facts!

The photo session.
I will meet you at your chosen location and off we go! Your photo session will last between thirty minutes and two hours depending on your choice of shoot. My aim of the photo session is to be relaxed and fun – it is a time for your family to spend some quality time together. I have five children and used to be a primary teacher so please don’t worry about your child’s behaviour or having to ‘perform’ – I’ve pretty much seen it all! I will give some gentle direction, depending on the light and location but many of my photographs will be so relaxed that you won’t even realise I am taking them!

What next?
Once a session is over, I can’t wait to see the photos and to show them to you! With your permission, I will show you my personal favourite photo from the session on my Facebook business page the same evening. I will then select the very best photos (around 20 to 25) and present them to you in a private online gallery within two weeks of your shoot. The gallery will be live for one week for you to decide which products you would like to order. I will give you all the time you need on the phone to chat through different options and discuss how your beautiful images can be displayed to show them at their best. Once full payment has been received, your photos will be with you within four weeks.
