So what do I get asked a lot?
What do I need to do in order to book?
You like my work? Brilliant! Let’s book. Get in contact and let me know when you’d like to book it for. I’ll give you a call and we can work out the best time of day, balancing out pretty golden hour light and your little ones schedule. To hold the time and date, you just need to pay a non refundable deposit of £50 and then you’re good to go.
Can we chat about what we should wear and what you want us to do?
Yes, absolutely! I can offer lots of advice on how to coordinate your family. We want you to look yourself and I want you to feel really comfortable, but I also know what will look lovely in your photos so definitely, let’s chat!
Will you tell us what to do during the session?
Yes and no! I want to capture as much natural beautiful connection as possible, but I will direct you and guide you. Perhaps to some pretty light or position you in a certain way. I will talk to you and ask you questions, sometimes they might seem weird or funny but trust me - it’s all about getting beautiful natural images!
What happens if my little one cries throughout the whole session?
Well firstly, let’s try to make all little ones as comfortable as possible for the session. Make sure they’re well fed, well rested and warm. All that being said, sometimes it’s unavoidable, but trust me when I say I’ve seen it all before (I have twin boys after all)! I leave plenty of time around the session so if we have to pause for feeding or just to regroup, we can. There’s absolutely no pressure, I want to make sure the photos are beautiful, so if we try everything and still no joy, then we can reschedule.
Can I rearrange the session if someone get’s ill?
Yes, for sure. I plan for up to two reschedules for illness or bad weather (see below), it goes with the territory when working with kids. As above, if they’re not happy then your pictures wont be pretty, something none of us want.
Can you retouch the images to make me look pretty?
First up, who told you you weren’t pretty?? Secondly, I want to capture you just the way you are. The way your children will remember you for years to come. I can do some light retouching, my general rule is something isn’t going to be there in a week, like a bump on the head or a scratch, then I can re touch it. If you want something more then I can for an additional fee of £25 per image.
What if it rains?
Then we reschedule. Unless some fun in the rain is what you’re after! Likewise in storms or snow.
What if the sun isn’t shining?
Then we have beautiful clouds! I love an overcast sky as much as I love a beautiful sunset and the images look wonderful.
Due to the great British weather I am unable to reschedule due to an overcast day.
