WHAT TO EXPECT

I work hard to make sure your experience with me is a delight from start to finish.  Here’s how it works.

1. MAKE A DATE

Please email or call me to choose a date for your shoot. You can get in touch here. Once I have received your Shoot Fee you are booked and confirmed in my diary.

2. LET’S CHAT

We will meet at my studio for coffee and to plan your shoot. It usually takes about half an hour.  You can tell me about your family, and we’ll discuss the type of images you are hoping for and look at some of the options for displaying your pictures.

We’ll agree other details such as the shoot location and what to wear.  I’ll give you some tips for preparing for your shoot and answer any other questions you might have.

3. THE DAY BEFORE

I will contact you to confirm the time and place to meet or to reschedule should the weather be rainy. Prepare your outfits and anything else you want to bring such as makeup, baby blankets or a favourite toy.

4. THE SHOOT

Your special day has arrived. We will spend a relaxed hour or two together where you will have fun, laugh, play games and do anything else that comes naturally. I’m there to guide you and capture the magic. Enjoy!

5. THE REVEAL

Around two weeks after your shoot we will meet in my studio for a viewing meeting to watch a slideshow of your images on a large screen and choose your favourite portraits. I will help you design galleries, select frames and choose gifts. You will place your order and make payment at this stage, although there is no obligation or minimum order.

6. SPECIAL DELIVERY

It usually takes about four weeks from ordering for your images to be ready. You can collect them from my studio or I can arrange for them to be delivered to you.
