How to Book Your Session
Send me a message on the Get in Touch page or give me a call on 07815 561560. We can then arrange your free, no obligation consultation to plan your perfect session.
Before your session I will visit your home to help plan your session. This is our chance to get to know each other a bit, which makes the session more relaxed. During the consultation we can discuss the location and time of the shoot, what to wear so you get the best images and any queries or concerns you may have. If you decide to book a session, I will take payment of the session fee and arrange to have the studio policies and session agreement signed. Once the deposit has been paid, your date is reserved for you.
During the Session
I keep my sessions as fun and laid back as possible. I understand that getting the family together for a photo shoot can be difficult so during the shoot I want everyone to relax and have fun. That’s why I choose locations where children are safe to play so don’t worry about them misbehaving. Letting them play and be themselves is the best way to get natural smiles and joyful images. Sessions last 90 minutes but I am flexible. It’s better to work with children to get the best images so I’m happy to take breaks when needed, even if it means to go past 90 minutes. Conversely, with younger children 90 minutes may been too long and so if we have all the images we need I am happy to finish earlier.
Rainy days are the price we pay for living in such a lush, beautiful country. If it is raining heavily we may have to reschedule for another day. I don’t normally reschedule for cloudy days, oftentimes cloudy days produce the best images. The light is much easier to work with and so the session is more relaxed. If your child is sick I am happy to reschedule, it’s better to wait until they are well so we can get the best images.
Viewing Your Images
During the consultation or session we can schedule a viewing appointment for you. The viewing session takes place at my home in Pontypridd. I will show you your gallery of 20 to 30 hand edited images. During this session I will help you select your products. You may choose to purchase digital or physical products or a mixture of the two. Once you have selected your products I will take payment via Chip and Pin.
All the images provided will be lightly retouched as necessary, including removing dribbles and bogeys. If you have a specific retouching request, please let me know during the session. Retouching requests may incur additional fees depending on the amount of work required.
Single digital files will be available to download within 2 working days of payment. Other orders will be delivered within 2-4 weeks depending on the product. When you make your order I will advise on the normal delivery time for the products you have chosen.
