What to expect
Preparing for your shoot
When you contact me to book your child portrait photoshoot, we will discuss exactly what you would like and will sort out the details such as the time of your shoot and the location.
I will send you some shoot preparation guides, such as a what to wear guide.
I am on hand every step of the way to help you get the best out of your shoot, so I would love to either meet you in person before or talk to you on the telephone to discuss your requirements. Or even better - why don't we meet up for cake and coffee? I'm buying!
Feel free to What's App me or send me a message on Facebook if you would like to show me any wardrobe ideas before your shoot.
I will meet you at your photoshoot location. I always get to the location earlier to have a scout around to see how busy it is and to see how the light is falling. I will come up with a few ideas for the shoot based on how busy it is and what the light is doing.
My photoshoots last approximately one hour, although some are quicker and some take a little longer. All of my sessions are child-led. We go by how everyone is feeling on the day, and if the children are unhappy or cold then we may finish the session sooner - cold and unhappy children do not make happy photographs! Sometimes the children are such little superstars and so amazing that we get everything we need in 20minutes. We just see what happens on the day!
Bring to your shoot any special items that your child loves such as toys, special blankets, footballs etc. I always have some bubbles with me and a few other bits and pieces. We want the shoot to be as much fun as possible!
After your shoot
I aim to have your images ready to view one week after your photoshoot and I usually offer approximately 20 images for you to choose from.
I love to be able to show you your images in the comfort of your own home. There is no pressure to buy and you only purchase what you love. After you have chosen your products/package, an online gallery will be made available for you to share with family and friends.
Once you have purchased your images, they will be available within 6 weeks for you to collect (depending on the time of year). Prints can be made available within 7 working days. If your images are for a special occasion then please let me know before you purchase your products so that I can give you a more up to date accurate lead time.
Your images are then yours to enjoy forever and ever! When you purchase images from me, you're not just buying photographs. You are buying priceless heirlooms which will become part of your family's history and will be passed down to your children, and to their children and then down to their children.
If you decide that you love your images and that you'd like to recommend me to family and friends, then I do run a referral scheme. Please ask me for details!
