FAMILY PHOTOSHOOTSEVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW
HOW IT WORKS:4 SIMPLE STEPS
THE MOST STRESS FREE FAMILY PHOTOSHOOT YOU HAVE EVER HAD
Let’s start with a chat where you can ask me anything.
Am I the right fit for you? What does a documentary photoshoot feels like? Which session length is best?
After our chat, I will send you a booking form to complete and you will pay a session fee to reserve your date (once it’s booked, I will not take any other bookings for that date).
Once you are all booked in, I will send you my welcome guide, and a detailed questionnaire to complete so that I can start to get to know you and how you tick as a family.
Tell me anything and everything from what time you get up in the mornings, to weird habits and who is the noisiest.
Closer to the date of your session, we will hop on a zoom call together to workout how best to structure your time with me, so I can capture your family authentically.
WE HANG OUT
Simply relax and be yourselves, let the day evolve naturally and I will be there to make art from your chaos.
You don’t have to do or wear anything special, because you want to be comfortable and feel like yourselves.
Your kids don’t have to be on their best behaviour, because we want to see their unique personalities.
You don’t even have to tidy up, because it’s all about capturing artful, authentic photos so you can remember this season of your family story.
YOU HOLD YOUR PHOTOS
This is the best bit! Around 4 weeks after your session, you will receive a link to your slideshow.
Be ready with tissues, it’s emotional seeing your real life in photos, all the things you take for granted elevated into beautiful art.
From here you choose your collection and select exactly which products are right for your family. Collections start at £600 are are completely tailored to you.
I can’t wait to deliver your products for you to feel the joy of holding your pictures in your hands and take in every beautiful detail.
