What to expect from your photo shoot
My approach to your photo shoot is very relaxed and I know that sometimes children and young people (and older ones) need a little time to get used to me and my lights and equipment. I also know that with babies a nappy might need changing at the last minute or a short pit stop might be required for food. All of this is totally fine, and to be expected. Whatever the situation, I just like to take things easy as I find that’s the best way to get the results we all want.
What to wear on the day
Deciding what to wear is always difficult, especially with groups. My advice would be to stick to your usual style so that you feel comfortable, but keep it simple. Avoid too many colours, huge logos or clashy patterns.
If you need extra help, I will email you a Pinterest board that relates to your shoot, or you can visit my Pinterest page here for inspiration.
If you take a look at my galleries and you will see a variety of dress styles, from plain white t-shirts with jeans to floaty dresses and wellies. This is because it’s not always about what you’re wearing, but more about capturing the emotion/dynamic going on that’s key to achieving the best images.
Viewing and purchasing your photos
Approximately a week after our shoot we will arrange an in-person viewing session where I can help you choose your images and prints and discuss framing and wall art options.
Your images will be delivered to your door, printed on high quality photographic paper approximately 7 days after your order has been received.
How your photographs will look
I am passionate that your finished prints and artwork are produced to the highest quality possible. I am confident that you will be delighted with the images you receive because they will be sourced from some of the finest printers and bespoke frame manufacturers found in the UK. I not only spend time perfecting your images during the final edit but also insist on using giclée printing – a high quality form of printing commonly used by art galleries and museums thanks to the intense colour representation and resistance to fading. My paper of choice is Hahnemühle Photo Rag, thanks to the superior fine art feel it lends to photographs. Some customers have commented that their images look almost three dimensional because of this and the fact that it’s renowned for adding a ‘painterly feel’ to photographic images.
