– Studio portraits Session Guide –

Thank you for booking your studio portrait session with me.

Please take a look at the session guide to help you prepare.

What to wear

The decision of what to wear can make or break your portraits.

I cant dtress how important this is.

The first thing to think about is what the decor in your home is like and then think of colours that will compement it.

The next thing to do is coordinate.

You want to pick one or two base colours and make sure everyone is wearing something in those colours.

Avoid busy patterns , big logos & writing on your clothes.

Heres some examples, but you can also check out my pintrest board here for more ideas.

Shoes – We will be taking shoes and socks off for your session so please avoid tights.

A few tips to help you prepare

I try and make it as fun as possible for children during the session but some children can get a little upset, because its all new for them. I can take my time and we can have a little play untill they are settled. But please do bring along their favourite toy that you don’t mind if it turns up in the photos.

Sometimes children can play up for the parents, don’t worry, I can usually work them round, just remember to relax and leave them to me.

Please try to arrive on time, if you are running late just pop me a text message or give me a call, please note that if you are more than 10 mins late, this time will be deducted from your session time.

So the children do not become distracted, please only the people who are taking part in the session should come along.

What happens Next

After your session, we will agree on a date for your viewing and ordering session so that you can see your photos and place your order. This will be around two weeks after your shoot and will back in the studio.

Your photos will it be available for you to view at your ordering session. If you struggle to make up your mind your images can be archived for two weeks. After this we need to archive your photos to make space for shoots that come after yours. Archiving can be arranged at a fee of £50 for two weeks.

The photos you choose will be archived until your order is complete after this time all images are deleted from my system.

Should you want to come back at a later date for more images, they can be archived at a cost of  £100 for six months.
