Portrait photography

Home-Location-Studio Portraits

Christening - Party - Events Photography

Your portrait photography session can take place in a fully equipped studio, on location of your choosing or in the comfort of your own home.
My aim is to capture your personality in a contemporary, relaxed and fun way.

The shoot will take place at the event and I can discuss with you prior to the event what your requirements are.
You can have the event recorded, formal shots of family members, group and individual portraits as well as more relaxed and fun photos.

Step 1 - Initial Consultation

Step 2 - The Shoot

Every portrait shoot is customised to your requirements. We will discuss what you would like to achieve from the portrait session or event, discuss clothing and styling and answer any questions you may have. We can arrange an appointment at your home, or discuss your requirements over the phone, or by email.
Any ideas you have are welcome and any special items that you can bring along on the day will help personalize your images further. For example, a child's favourite toy, a special fancy dress costume, hats or musical instruments, etc.

Your Shoot will take place either at the studio, on location or at your home and will last between 1-2 hours. This may take a bit longer if it includes more than one location or for model portfolios.
Initially when you arrive I will advise you on styling and your clothes and your hair and make up will be done at this point if you have ordered this. This can be fun for those that like to dress up.
Then the shoot commences and you will be given a variety of sitting and standing poses to go through and this is where your own items come into play. You will need to pay your session fee at this stage.

Step 3 - Viewing your Portrait Images

Step 4 - Getting Your Photos

You will be able to view and choose your images about 7 to 10 days after the shoot, in some circumstances this can be done straight after the shoot, if time allows.
You can choose to have your photos as prints, where the sizes start from an 8" x 6" print up to 30" x 20" . You can also have your photos professionally mounted and framed from a selection of popular frame styles. A more contemporary look is to have your photos stretched onto canvas, as a rectangular, square or panoramic canvas which comes ready to hang. Acrylic Prints are very popular or have your photos printed as a photo book, or on DVD. If you have any special requests which I have not covered please ask.
At this point you will be asked to pay a 50% deposit towards the cost of your order.

Your order will be ready within 10-14 days. If you need your order quicker then this may be possible. Some items like prints or images on DVD are quicker than canvases and framed prints. You will be able to collect your order or I will deliver it to your home. The remaining balance will be payable at this point.

If there are any other questions please contact me, or put your questions in the booking form where it says 'further comments'. I hope to hear from you soon.
