Before the photo session I’ll want to get to know you a little first and find out what you enjoy when you spend time together. So, to begin with, it would be great to have a chat on Skype or Facetime. I’ll ask a few questions which will help me understand what you’re looking for. Taking time to find a great location for the shoot is important too. Do you prefer the energy of the city, open spaces in the country..… or perhaps something different entirely.
We’ll also talk about who’s going to be involved and how you feel about having your photograph taken. I’ll send over a few tips on what to wear and getting ready for the day, along with my product list with all the printed products and packages to display your photos.
Have you booked a holiday home or a country house nearby for a short break? If it’s easier for you, I’m more than happy to meet you your there. We can photograph in the house and the garden or pop out for a short walk nearby – whatever works for you.
Your photo session
During the photo sessions, my approach is always about encouraging everyone to be relaxed and capturing moments as they happen. If there are young children involved I’ll get down to their level to try to capture their expressiveness and imagination. I’ll also want to pull back and capture some wider shots that include the location, to remind you of this stunning part of England.
Viewing your photos
I’ll select and carefully edit your best images (about 40-50) within two weeks of your photo session. You’ll have access to a private client portal, here you’ll be able to view a slideshow, select your favourite photos and share your gallery with family and friends.
No longer in the UK, no problem. If you purchase a digital package, your photos will be delivered through a digital download, ready for you to enjoy when you return home.
Displaying your photos
Choosing how to display your photos is the final stage and the really fun bit. This is where you might select your favourites and consider how you’d like to personalise them and present them in your home, or as a gift. Unlike digital images, a print is chosen a little more consciously. This can be a fun part where we can choose the shot, the paper, the mount and so on to work in a particular place for particular reasons.
And with the photos you don’t print, you can still purchase the full set of digitals or choose a great value package that includes all of your digital images and selected prints.
