How long is a photo shoot? Questions and FAQ
We will normally take your family photographs in an hour, but I leave up to an hour and a half. It is long enough for me to capture gorgeous photographs of your family, but not too long for your children to lose interest.
What shall we wear and what locations are available?
When you book your photo shoot we will arrange a telephone call prior to the photo shoot. This call will allow me to find out about your family, your children’s likes and their personalities. I will also run through location options which I feel are well suited for you and some tips on clothing.
Can we choose our own location?
Yes if you have a special family place such as a park where you would like your photographs taken just let me know.
What happens if the weather is bad on the day of the shoot?
If the weather is overcast we carry on as this can produce some soft, beautiful lighting which is very flattering. If it is heavily raining you will be given the option to reschedule.
I am camera shy.
This is no problem at all. Whether you are camera shy or feeling a little insecure in front of the camera, please do not worry. My style of photography is very natural and relaxed, a lot of the time you won’t be looking directly at the camera either. Mums often feel the most nervous, but remember these photo shoots are about capturing precious moments for you with your family and I will do everything I can to make you feel comfortable throughout the photo shoot.
How do I prepare my children?
This is an important question and the answer varies depending on their age. When you book a photo shoot you will receive a PDF from me with lots of helpful tips to prefer you before the day.
Do you offer mini photo shoots?
I do offer a few of these every year and they tend to go very quickly. You can always email me to see if any are available.
What if the children are unwell?
If anyone in the family is unwell please let me know and I will happily offer you one re-scheduled photo shoot. This will depend on my availability, so you may have to wait a few weeks, or change to a week day if weekends are booked up. But I will do everything I can to provide you with convenient options.
Do you edit the photographs?
Yes after a photo shoot, I will personally edit all of the photographs before you see them in your gallery. My purpose is to enhance each photograph, but still keep it in my natural style.
Will my images by used anywhere?
Your images will never be passed on to anyone by myself, they will only ever be used as part of my photography portfolio.
Do you sell gift vouchers?
Family photo shoots make a gorgeous gift! Please get in contact for more information on my selection of gift vouchers available.
