1) Getting Ready
Once you have booked in for a shoot and have your session day and time set, please be sure to have a read over our 'What To Wear Guide' to help you plan for your session. It walks you through lots of tips to help you pick out the best outfits for your session. If anyone is having a hair cut around the time of the session, aim for a week before the session to give it time to grow in and look more natural. Also if anyone has any allergies or medical conditions we should be aware of please let us know in advance and we can try to accommodate as best as possible.
2) What To Bring
Props, Themes and Toys for kids can make a session much more fun and personal. Please feel free to bring anything along with you on the day, just be sure to let us know in advance so I can start planning out all the amazing shots we can put together. If you have a fun hobby or a job that you would like to theme a few shots too, let us know and we can include it during your session. If you would like to, you can also bring along a 2nd outfit.
3) Before Your Session Starts
Family sessions in the studio are a lot of fun and a great way to capture some amazing memories. Before we begin with your shoot we will take a few minutes out to sit down and have a quick last chat over your session and some last minute info, this only takes a few minutes at most though! We then have up to an hour to go through different poses, lighting setups, outfits, individual and group shots.
4) At The End Of Your Session
After we have finished the session you will be booked in for a viewing session for around 2 weeks later. We spend the time between your session and viewing individually editing and retouching each image to make sure they all are finished to the highest standard.
5) Viewing, Ordering and Beyond
During your viewing session you get to see all the finished images from your session. We will have a short chat over the images along with the prints and wall art that we can offer. At the end of your viewing session we will give you the link and password for your online gallery so that you can look over your images for up to 14 days giving you lots of time to decide on your order. Orders can be placed in studio, by e-mail, or directly through the client gallery. Orders usually take around 1 to 2 weeks but can be couriered from the lab to make things quicker. They are then hand gift wrapped with lots of care and are ready to be collected from the studio.
Once your artwork is sitting proudly on your wall, please do have a think over how much you enjoyed your experience with us. Our clients have an amazing time with us and most book again year after year. We pride ourselves on establishing long term clients and in the past few years have had families back in for their 4th, 5th and even 6th session.
We also survive largely on word of mouth, if you had a great time and want to share it please feel free to give us a review on Facebook or Google!
