What to Expect

What to expect before the shoot

  • An email or telephone call to discuss the date, time & venue of the shoot.
  • A follow-up email to confirm the above and info on what to wear and what to expect.
  • Session fee is due at time of booking please –  your session is only confirmed once payment has been taken.
  • I will be in contact with you a day or two before the shoot to confirm the weather forecast if it is an outdoors shoot.
  • You can contact me anytime for more information or to ask questions.

What to expect during the shoot

  • Whether your shoot is outside, in your home or in my studio you can expect a fun, relaxed and enjoyable time  – I want to capture the real you - so just be yourself and enjoy!
  • I will spend a bit of time getting to know you and your children and finding out what ideas you may have for any photos.
  • The session will last between 1-2 hours depending on – the type of shoot you have booked, how many people are in the shoot, ages of the children/babies, number of outfit changes, tea breaks!
  • It is a good idea to bring snacks { bribes }, a favourite teddy or toy.  An outfit change/change of top/add a hat, pair of sunnies, scarf, wellies, tutu’s. This helps vary the shots.  Anything goes as long as you and your children have fun!
  • Please remember most toddlers have tantrums, most newborns wee, poo or are sick on me at some point! I have seen it all, I am a mum and I am no longer shocked!
  • Some times the best shots are the real natural ones - so don’t worry if you think we aren’t getting any – I take a few hundred shots in a session and always get lovely images.
