How does the photography session work?

Family Beach Photography Session-7I love natural light and the versatility of being able to work anywhere so I don’t work out of a studio but I’m happy to work anywhere there is enough light.

It’s amazing the incredible backdrops you can find in our lovely city. We can talk through locations (I have lots of favourites if you need suggestions) and come up with something that suits you and the look and feel you want for your images. If you have a favourite location, somewhere that means a lot to you, that is awesome. We can go to wherever your happy place is – park, beach, hills, vineyards, urban – whatever look you are after.

Session duration depends on your package. However, I just love to shoot so tend to get a little snap happy and will be flexible with time to make sure we get a great range of shots.

Before the day I will work with you to customise and designed your session to suit your personality, taste and needs. Different locations, different feel, no two session are the same. We will talk through wardrobe, location, props, styling and how the session works – all the details to make the experience extra special. If you have ideas or photos of something you’ve seen and just love then absolutely let me know. It’s also a great opportunity to incorporate your passions whether it be reading, sport or anything in between. Show who you are! During the shoot I will guide you through positioning and posing so all you have to do is have some fun. I love candid photography so will keep it casual but there will be some posing. Of course if you want that high-end fashion look you can work those poses like a pro. It’s up to you.

For information on what to wear here is a blog post I did on the subject or you can click on the link at the bottom to go to some more info.

After your session, your photos will be professionally edited to bring out your best.  I don’t take out anything permanent (unless you ask for it) but blemishes, dark circles, etc. will all get a work over. Here’s a before and after so you see the difference:

Once your pics have been perfected I will have them ready to be viewed in an online gallery approximately 2 weeks after our session.  I’ll email you a link and a password where you can access them privately. Generally, the gallery will be available on my site for two weeks unless special arrangements are made.  Then it’s just up to you to grab a cuppa and flick through to narrow down your favourites and pick out the images for your package.

In addition to your package you can also add some special prints and canvases, albums or even make your picture a brilliant feature using modern printing techniques on metal or glass. I can also customise collages for you to really add a personal touch and tell a story.  These make great gifts by adding quotes, text or dates to fit your print. There is a link below to download the brochure on these extras.

Talk to me about any specific products or non-standard print sizes you would like.  Prices do not include frames.[divider style=”solid” color=”#ffffff” width=”1px”]
