Hi, I’m Sarah. I've been a photographer for many years, in fact one of my earliest memories is of making prints in my dad's wardrobe darkroom when I was very tiny. I have a first class degree in Photography and I work in a college as a photography teacher, as well as running my portrait business and teaching classes privately. My favourite studio is the great outdoors with its lovely natural light. My most-used props are flowers, leaves and puddles.
My standard package price is £220. This includes the photo session and 16 full-sized, professionally edited digital files, ready to print. There are no hidden extras - you can get as many prints made as you like at cost price directly from your chosen lab. If you'd prefer a different option - for example more than 16 photos or a bespoke printing and framing service, please contact me for details.
I live in Earley in Reading, Berkshire, UK. I love exploring and I'm happy to travel, but please ask me for a quote if you're outside the Reading area.
If you decide to go ahead you’ll be asked to pay a £50 deposit in order to secure your booking. This can be paid by Paypal, credit or debit card securely online.
About your session
On the day before the session I’ll contact you to discuss the last minute details such as weather conditions (it may be necessary to postpone if the forecast is very bad).
What to wear is completely up to you of course, but my advice for best results would be to choose smart/casual clothing that you feel comfortable in and is suitable for the weather and location. I'd suggest avoiding very bright colours, khaki/camouflage, and tops with writing, logos, or obvious pictures on them. I also wouldn’t recommend wearing hats with brims or peaked caps as they may cast shadows on your face.
During the summer months (May, June, July, August, September) it’s usually best to work in the early morning, late afternoon or evening because the midday sunlight can be very harsh.
I’ll send you a link to an online gallery containing your photographs within 21 days. If you’re happy with them you'll be able to download the full sized files on receipt of cleared payment.
Thanks for your interest in Rainbright Photography!
