THE PHOTO SESSION EXPERIENCE
Whether we are photographing your precious newborn, or your entire family on location, my philosophy is the same:
Your photo session should be be entirely tailored around you.
Understanding your family’s personality and your final goals for your portraits is key to delivering results you will absolutely love.
But while our session is a completely bespoke experience, it doesn’t need to be a difficult and convoluted process – your time is precious!
If we have not worked together before, here is a handy breakdown of each step of the process, and what to expect from each one.
After our initial phone or email contact, I will invite you to meet me at my studio. It’s a great opportunity to share ideas for your session, answer all your questions and gather inspiration for the many exciting ways to display your images.
And all the while, we’ll be getting to know each other, so that you will feel more comfortable on your shoot day.
Payment for your session fee is taken at this stage.
On the big day, we will meet at my studio, your home or at another location that we will have agreed upon at the consultation stage.
Our relaxed and informal photo session will take anything from around 90 minutes for families, up to 4 hours for a newborn.

After your session, my editing job begins. I will choose 40 to 50 of your best portraits and edit them to perfection, so that each one of them truly shines.
My signature editing includes colour and contrast, cropping for best composition, some gentle skin retouching and a pinch of magic as standard!
The editing process takes approximately two weeks.
Two weeks after your photo session, we will meet again to review your fully edited image gallery, and to put together your portrait order.
During this 60-90 minute session, you will be able to choose from a wide range of display options for the style that best suits your images and personal taste. Payment for your order is taken at this stage.
I will be there at every step of the way, to guide and advise in a completely pressure-free manner. It’s all about what YOU want!
Your order will be ready approximately two to six weeks after your viewing appointment. Production times vary according to the product ordered.
I check every order personally for quality control, and hand-deliver all orders within 20 miles of the studio. Collection can also be arranged.
If you are not local, don’t worry – I am always happy to help you arrange courier deliveries anywhere in the world!
