You’ve decided to join me. It’s a date, well three in fact.
01. the planning
02. the shoot
03. the viewing and ordering
01. THE PLANNING
Firstly, you will have a pre-shoot consultation with me where I’ll find out about your family and all their little quirks.
You’ll also tell me where you plan to hang your images and send me a photo of this space. By knowing the colours of your walls and the style of the room, I can suggest places for the shoot and clothing ideas which will compliment these. Click here for some helpful ideas to look at before our chat.
The consultation will usually be a phone call between us but if you’d prefer to FaceTime or Skype, just let me know.
You can choose the time and date of your consultation by clicking here. A booking fee is not payable until after our consultation.
After our chat, all that will be left for you to do is turn up, relax and enjoy your session.
02. IT’S SHOOT TIME
Remember being told to smile at the camera when you were younger? Feeling stiff and awkward being told how to stand? Well, don’t worry, you won’t be doing that.
You may be guided into a certain light or given prompts to help you along the way but the rest will be you and your family doing your beautiful thing.
I know your husband may not be as up for it as you but once he is with you and the children and he sees the shots we’re managing to get he will be as excited as you to see them.
Just use this as a great opportunity to spend time with your family with no distractions. No cbeebies, no iphones, bliss…
03. LET’S CREATE SOMETHING AMAZING
A WEEK LATER
You, me, cake and coffee (or wine if you’d prefer)…
Your experience doesn’t end with your shoot. Afterwards you’ll be treated to an in person viewing of your images. This can take place wherever is best for you. At home when the children are in bed, a coffee shop, anywhere, the choice is yours.
If you’re like most of my clients, you probably want something beautiful to display in your home. You’ll be blown away with what we can create together and I can even show you what the images will look like on your wall. But don’t worry, you won’t be subjected to any sleazy sales pitch or put under any pressure to buy anything you don’t love. And, of course, the cake and coffee will aid the creative process.
Don’t forget, if your husband wants to be involved in this side of things, make sure he is there too. If he doesn’t, more cake for us!
FOUR WEEKS LATER
If you’ve ordered framed prints, these will be delivered to you ready for hanging on your walls.
