How do I book a photo session?
The best way to contact me is via email. You can either use the contact page on my website or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively you can give me a call on 5084946718 if you would like to make a booking or to discuss your upcoming session.
How long in advance does my photo session need to be booked?
Weekend dates are the most popular and spaces are limited so it is usually best to make your booking about 6-8 weeks in advance. For weekdays 2-4 weeks in advance should be fine. However if you need to make an urgent booking, please contact me and I will do my best to fit you in if possible.
With newborn sessions we will make a provisional booking and then you can contact me as soon as your baby is born to confirm the date.
Is a deposit required? What happens if my child gets sick?
The session fee is required at the time of booking to reserve your session. If you or a member of your family are unwell, please contact me asap so we can reschedule the session. As a mother of 3 little ones I understand that these things happen and there will be no extra charge.
Where are you based? Where will my session take place?
Depending on the style of photos you prefer, we can do the photoshoot at the studio or if you prefer a photojournalistic style we can shoot in your own home or an outdoor location.
How long will my session be?
Anything from 30minutes to 2 hours depending on the age and mood of the little ones. Newborn sessions could take up to 4 hours.
How can I prepare for my session?
I recommend choosing 2-3 outfits for each person. For family sessions, it is a good idea to dress somewhat co ordinated. If you have young children it is very important that they are well rested before the session. I find little ones are usually in the best mood after a good nap so we will schedule the session around their needs.
How long after my session can I view my photos?
Your pictures will be ready approximately 3-4 weeks after your session. An ordering session will be arranged at the studio so you can view a photo slideshow of your images. We will then go through them one by one so you can make your choices. I advise that you have a look around your house before you come for the ordering session so you can have a rough idea of what you would like. If you are unable to come to the studio, an online gallery will be arranged for 5 days for you to choose your photos. The gallery can be extended at a charge of £10 per week.
Do you offer retouching?
Retouching is included in the print prices. I like to keep photos as natural as possible but I do retouch dark circles around the eyes, scratches, blemishes etc.
Are gift vouchers available?
Gift vouchers are available for purchase, just email me the name of the person it’s for and the amount or product you wish to gift. I will then email you a customised gift voucher. Payment can be made by bank transfer, cash or cheque.
