Portraits and Poses
It is tricky finding the correct portrait photographer. Balancing ability, cost and calendars can prove stressful enough. My aim is to make the entire experience of newborn/baby/family photography as pleasant and enjoyable as possible. I love capturing the precious moments in life we want to remember & making sure you get the images you will love forever.
The safety of your little one is paramount, I have undertaken safety training, paediatric first aid and was previously a childminder. I always ensure baby is as happy as possible. And when they need a cuddle from Mum or Dad I'll hand them back to reassure them they're safe. My poses won't include anything I would not be happy doing with my own child and I may at times request you as a spotter. Placing a hand on baby that can be edited out later, just to make sure there are no unexpected rolls!
Affordability is also something I pride myself on - no hidden charges anywhere! I love to listen to my clients and prospective clients regarding needs and what they're looking for from their desired portrait photography session. I update my packages and service regularly to reflect the needs of my clients.
I will arrive with a lot of equipment! I require a space of roughly 6ft by 6ft to create the studio of backdrop and professional flash lighting. This fits most living-room or dining areas with a little furniture shift for the session, it takes around 20 minutes to set-up which is not included in the time of your shoot.
The actual session depends on the purchased package. In the time selected, I will be able to get a good range of images, poses and an outfit change or two. I suggest clothing without big logo's or bold patterns as this can detract from the overall compositioins. If the session is for a baby shoot, the the room should be nice & warm to stop the baby feeling uncomfortable during changes or naked shots.
After the shoot, I will take the images back & edit them individually to remove blemishes, adjust lighting and crop the pictures correctly. This process takes around 3 weeks to ensure the very best results, I'll then send the contact sheet via email for you to choose your print(s). Once your order is complete I will send your print, disc and anything else you have purchased via 1st Class Recorded Royal Mail.
