Portrait session information
‘What is a pre-consultation?’
Every family is different and it is important for me to understand your own personal taste and life style, so that it is very much reflected in your artwork. Your photoshoot will include your very own pre-consultation and styling session, where we will plan out your photoshoot, what clothing to wear and what accessories to bring with you. We will also discuss display options for your home.
‘Where is my session held?’
Family or couple sessions take place at your home or at a location of your choice.
Maternity sessions take place either at my newborn studio, at your own home or at a location of your choice.
Newborn sessions take place at my newborn studio or at your own home.
‘When should I book my maternity and newborn session?’
Maternity sessions are best booked when you are around 34-36 weeks pregnant. At your maternity session, we would make a tentative booking for your newborn photoshoot, based just after your due date. The best time to photograph a newborn baby is when they are under two weeks of age, after this time babies are a little harder to settle and things like colic and baby acne can start to flare up. We would then be in touch with you around this time to see if baby has arrived and if not, we can reschedule for a later date.
‘How long will my shoot take?’
Family, couple and maternity sessions take around 1-2 hours.
Newborn family sessions can take 2-3 hours, allowing enough time for feeding and comforting.
