Before the shoot I meet with you to discuss what you would like. In the discussion I cover what to wear, where you would like the shoot to occur and what your children like to do. If we can keep the kiddos happy, it will show in the photographs.
This will be up to two hours and can take place wherever you like. I can photograph you all in your favourite place, along your favourite walk, or in your home in your favourite spot on the sofa. It’s about being relaxed and enjoying the moment.
It takes me about a week to process all of your images and get them together for viewing. I was originally trained to print photographs by hand in the dark room, but now with the top-of-the-range digital cameras, all your images are processed much quicker.
As a photojournalist, the images that I take are what you will see. I do very little post production work in Photoshop as I believe the art is in taking the photograph, not what you can do on your computer. However, as a mother and a woman, I understand if you would like a touch of airbrush help, not that we need it! Just ask.
I ask that you to come to my home studio to view your images when they are ready. This can be done after work or if you have time on the weekend. I have a lovely big screen, perfectly calibrated to present what your images will look like in real life. You will see 40 plus images from your shoot, and I will help you decide how you would like to display them. I offer a wide choice of frames, collages, and albums, and will come to your home or office to help you measure your wall space if you like!
The fee for a family shoot is £195.
I work in a documentary style, photographing your day as it unfolds: capturing the flower girls as they attempt to throw their flowers early, photographing the bride having a last minute chat with her father before they walk down the aisle, and getting the glow of happiness as the bride and groom emerge from the ceremony – married!
If you would like some traditional group shots of the family and wedding party, I am happy to do those as well.
I am happy to design an album for you, or frame one of the many photographs from the day as well.
It also includes a pre-consultation, which really helps me to get to know you both better and what images you would like from your big day. I am happy to meet you where it is most convenient for you.
If you would like more coverage or less, please be in touch, I would love to hear from you.
My fees begin at £850 pounds to cover your wedding, which includes up to 5 hours coverage along with a dvd of all the edited, high resolution, print ready images for you to use however you would like to!
Do you need a professional headshot taken for your business, LinkedIn or Facebook account?
I am more than happy to come to your office to photograph you indoors with my travelling studio, or I can meet you outdoors and take some photographs using natural light. It’s your choice, have a look through my portrait section to see what you prefer.
My fees start at 150 pounds for 3 individually posed headshots, which includes 6 high resolution jpegs of your choice, delivered on a dvd.
