DURING THE SESSION
What should I wear?
The simple answer is whatever you want! If your glamorous, wear your sparkliest outfit, if you're always in your wellies, wear them! You want to be yourself, but do make sure it is suitable for your chosen location, I want you to feel as confident as possible. You don’t need to do the whole matching white t-shirt/blue jeans combo with your family, simply try some subtle co-ordination, try colours which compliment each other. I can only give tips on what to wear to get the most out of your session but ultimately you are in control.
What should I bring?
You are more than welcome to bring props which are important to you and your family, a change of outfit etc. If you are having a newborn shoot remember to pack all the essentials and snacks for kids!
I don’t know how to pose, will you guide me?
Although I won't get you in any 'posey' poses I know all the tips and tricks to best show off your assets so rest assured you are in good hands, I will guide you all the way so relax and enjoy your session.
What if it rains?
I always keep my eye on the weather leading up to location shoots, in case of lots of rain or snow I will reschedule with you to choose a more suitable day to shoot. Personally I will go ahead and shoot in any weather providing its safe to do so but I will always keep you updated on the situation and you ultimately make the decision to reschedule or go ahead and brave the rain!
AFTER THE SHOOT
How long will we have to wait to view my images?
Up to 2 weeks after your shoot you will get to view your photos via a password protected online gallery and instantly download your low resolution photos to share on facebook and email, around 10 working days after that you will receive your USB containing high resolution photos to print.
How do you deliver?
I use Royal Mail tracked services to deliver USB's, albums and prints
Do you offer payment plans?
Yes, I offer 0% interest free payment plans on larger orders. Great for spreading costs!
Do you edit all the images from the shoot?
I meticulously go through all the photos from your session and cull those which just don't make the cut, this is normally duplicates and eyes shut etc.
Do we get to keep the unedited, RAW files?
I do not give out RAW unedited files. The editing process is just as important as the photo, I apply my signature style during the process before delivering the finished product. You get the low resolution instant downloads from your online gallery plus high resolution photos on your USB for printing.
