Frequently asked questions
WHAT EXACTLY IS A SESSION LIKE?
We start with a little wander and a chat, and I will give gentle direction or prompts throughout to make it fun and easy.
No forced posing required! Just a fun time together as a family.
WHAT IF IT RAINS?
We can always work around a bit of drizzle and, in fact, an overcast day is preferable to a bright one. The majority of the time we can work with or around the weather and can take some beautiful photographs indoors too. If I conclude that the weather is too bad, we will re-schedule.
I WORRY ABOUT MY CHILD(REN) RUNNING WILD
No need to worry! This is exactly what we want, your children to have fun and be themselves! I am a mum of two so I understand! This is what makes for really natural photographs and relaxed parents. My sessions will go at the children’s pace.
WHEN DO YOU OFFER PHOTOSHOOTS?
It often can be difficult to find the time to get all the family together in one place. Therefore, I offer location shoots seven days a week, morning & afternoon, at a time to suit you. I never book more than one shoot per day, so that I can give each family my undivided attention and time.
DO YOU WORK IN MY AREA?
I generally work in and around Warwickshire and the Cotswolds but I do also work across the UK. If you are further afield I’d still love to photograph your family. There may be an additional charge for my travel costs.
WHERE DO YOUR PHOTOSHOOTS TAKE PLACE?
All my sessions take place on location. I am able to travel to your home and we can take the photographs in your garden. This works especially well with younger children as all home comforts are on hand! Alternatively we meet at a local park, woods or somewhere near to you. I have a whole list of suggested locations as well. We will discuss what is best for your family at the time of booking.
WHAT IF WE ARE UNWELL?
If you are, please let me know as soon as possible and we will re-schedule your photo session.
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?
On booking, I will send you some tips on what to wear to make the best out of your photographs. Dress for the weather first and wear something comfortable, that you feel good in.
HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHS DO YOU TAKE?
I will take a lot of photographs! The final selection will be approximately 30/40 photographs.
HOW AND WHEN WILL WE SEE OUR PHOTOGRAPHS?
The final selection will be uploaded to a secure online gallery within three weeks. From here you will be able to select your favourites and we can discuss any other products that you may like. You are also able to direct family and friends to the site, where they can order their own prints or digital files, should they wish.
WHEN DO WE NEED TO PAY
I ask for £100 to be paid as a deposit before the photoshoot. Then the balance is payable, depending which package you opt for, is to be paid after viewing your photographs.
