Frequently Asked Questions
Can I buy vouchers for a gift?
Absolutely, all of our shoots are available as gift vouchers. We offer 12 vouchers for each type of shoot that we offer and they can also be open ended allowing the recipient to choose what is best for them - this also allows you to choose from a number of options to suit different budgets. Each voucher has at least 12 months from purchase until expiry and a lot of our clients choose to buy their own vouchers this way - you can buy a shoot voucher now and book in later.
“But I don’t really like being in pictures”
Pretty much everyone who comes through the studio door likes to greet me with this information. That’s ok, because I really like taking pictures of you, in other words you won’t get much of chance to be worrying about how you look because I will be moving us through tonnes of different, naturally directed images and it's my job to make sure that you look your best.
What should we wear?
In truth, it doesnt really matter! I want to photograph you, your interactions and your expressions. However, I cannot deny that when a little forethought is put into clothing choices, it can make a big difference. I send out styling guides if you book a seasonal shoot with suggestions and information on how to look and feel at your best. There are definitely a few things that are best avoided and I have a full blog on the subject for those who want to learn more.
What if we need to cancel/postpone?
Peak date appointments can be in very high demand and no-shows can be very demoralising. Please get in touch as soon as you can if you think that you might need to change your shoot date and I will always accommodate a genuine move without issue.
If anyone is unwell for the shoot, please do postpone, its every hard to get smiles from poorly children who would rather be tucked up in bed.
Can we buy extra photos and display products from you?
Yes! All of our portrait shoots include at least one image, but you are welcome to choose more. I offer a wide range of items, all offering quality and value to suit a wide variety of budgets.
Whetever you do, please don't do nothing with them; print them, share them, enjoy them!
You can read a full blog on ideas of what you can do with your portrait pictures here.
We have a specific request, can you do it?
I love it when clients come to me with specific ideas, infact the more random and 'out-there' the better! Please discuss any specific requests with me before your portrait session, but I am open minded to all ideas!
Can we bring the dog/pony/pet dragon?
Absolutely! - Some of your animal family members would love to be included in your family pictures, especially any of the dog-shaped variety.
I love all animals and am always willing to include them in our shoots if it can be done kindly and safely. Please let me know before the shoot if you are planning on bringing any animals along!
We are not sure which shoot is right for us?
I try and offer choice as my clients have a veriety of wonderful tastes. I dont want it to seem overwhelming and my blog contains a lot of information which could help - including ideas and a little of what is involved in some of our shoots.
Peruse the galleries, browse the blog, and if you are still not sure... just get in touch.
