FAQ - FAMILY SESSIONS
What's that you say? You're running late, there's porridge all over your new outfit, little Jonny has been up since 4am and is having a meltdown. Sara is a teething, dribbling, hot mess and all this before our 8am session…
Oh and you still haven't had a coffee yet?!
Relax! I'm a mum. I understand real life doesn't always go to plan so to make things a little easier for you I try to make my sessions as relaxed as possible. You are never on a time scale! There's plenty of time for cuddles, snacks and whatever else you need.
We can stroll and play, stop for some great family shots along the way, then stroll and play some more :) Simple.
You and your children are never under pressure to perform for me. Don’t worry if they are not looking down my camera lens and saying “cheese” - we always get smiles and the natural ones are the best (please leave the "cheese" at home;).
Where will the session take place?
Family sessions can take place at home, the beach, a favourite park, amongst the trees - the choice is yours. I have some fantastic locations to recommend and we can always discuss ideal options and creative ideas when arranging your booking. My sessions are inspired by and tailored to each family.
When will the session take place?
Early mornings and late afternoons are perfect for beautiful natural low light (the golden hour before dusk is my favourite). I appreciate these times don’t always work with young children and am more than happy to fit in with your family’s routine.
What should we wear?
My advice would be to wear whatever makes you feel comfortable and happy. Your images should reflect you. In general, I would suggest avoiding bold, prominent logos or lettering as it can be distracting. Patterns are fine. Also, please feel free to change outfits during the session. I'm happy to discuss options with you.
Now, Mummies… I know you'll be busy organising the whole family but please don't forget about you. So many times, I've heard comments like "the pictures are amazing but I should've got my roots done" or "I hate my arms, why on earth did I wear that top!?". Just remember this is for you too - perhaps a great excuse for a little pamper ;)
Should I bring any toys?
Yes please, but bear in mind that you don't want to be bogged down with too many things to carry so probably best to be selective. A bucket & spade is always a winner on the beach or maybe your little one has a special teddy? Equally, if they are happy just exploring (like my little monkeys) that’s fine. And to finish, perhaps cakes, bubbles or ice cream would be a nice surprise!
When will I be able to view my images?
You will receive a link to your own online gallery 4 weeks after the shoot. From there you will be able to download ALL the photos. Each image is beautifully edited in both colour and black & white.
How many images are in my gallery?
You will have over 50+ beautiful photos. Each image is beautifully edited in both colour and black & white.
How do I make my selection and place an order?
You are able to view all the session images and place your order of prints/artworks directly from your personal online Photo Gallery.
I am always happy to help with the selection process if and when you need me.
There are no hidden costs and I never EVER hard sell. The only thing I ask is that you make your selection within 3 weeks of receiving your gallery, thank you!
How long does it take to receive my products?
