Hurray! You have booked your family photo shoot.
What you need to know...
What to wear ?
Firstly, you all need to feel comfortable! If we are going through fields and woods, remember you may get muddy.
I always suggest smart casual. Very bright colours and big logos are probably best avoided. Just think the picture may well end up on the wall, so dress relatively neutral.
What do I bring with me?
Just yourself really! If you want to incorporate anything in particular, lets chat beforehand, so I can have a think about how best to do it.
What if I get lost?
Please leave plenty of travel time as I may have someone else booked in after you, and if you arrive late, we may have to cut the session short.
What will I get?
We will have an hour together at our agreed location to take a range of pictures and explore the area. I allow an hour so there is no rush and as little stress as possible. Please allow up to three weeks during busy periods for me to get your gallery live. I always aim to do this as quickly as possible.
You will have at least 20 images, normally lots more.
I love popping sneak peeks on my social media, so if you have agreed to this, you will have a sneak peek before you see the full gallery.
You will get a link and a password for an online gallery, where you will find at least 20 different images to download.
Online gallery ?
The online gallery is accessed on my website. Your gallery is your own and you will only be able to view it. From here you can download the images or order prints. You can also share the gallery link with friends and family (if you want to).
Are there any hidden charges?
No! You get your photo shoot and online gallery to download your images from. With your downloaded image files you can order prints from any printing service of your choice, or you can also purchase prints straight from your online gallery page, these are from a pro lab and are recommended.
I need to cancel!
That's ok. These things happen. If you are cancelling less than 48 hours before your photo shoot is planned to take place, I will retain 50% of the session fee. This is due to the fact that in such a short a time, it will be very difficult for me to find someone else to fill your space.
What if the weather is rubbish?
We live in Britain, this is a hazard! I try to crack on if it's a little bit drizzly or a little bit cold but totally understand nobody wants to smile if it's freezing cold and wet. We can try to rearrange.
Terms and conditions...
I'll try to keep this short as it's the boring bit!
All the images are for personal use. This basically means that you can print as many times as you like, share on social media to friends and family, email it to friends and family or using it for those cute christmas cards that grandparents always adore! What you cannot do with them though, is give them to anyone for commercial use. (Say for example you had your hair done before the shoot, you can't give the picture to the hairdresser for them to advertise their business.)
I edit the images to my style (which I hope you'll like, as you're booking me!) If there are any changes you want to make to the images, then please contact me and I can try to edit accordingly.
And of course if you have any questions at all just drop me a message or call me
07886 549561 (10am-6pm, if unavailable please text or leave me a message - I live in the countryside and my signal is terrible!)
