Where do the photo shoots take place?
Either in the comfort of your own home using our mobile studio (Choice of backdrops & studio lights) or outdoors - the natural backdrop. Usually local parks/woodland areas are great locations. Im happy to travel to wherever is convenient to you (and your family) If it is out of Sheffield then usually the cost of my petrol is included in the price.
How long does a session take?
Usually I charge by the hour. This can depend on your situation but I'm really flexible and understanding. Say for example your newborn needs a nappy & change of clothes then I won't clock watch. I'm happy for the session to run over until the perfect shots are taken.
How do I pay?
Bank Transfer or cash, no cheques i'm afraid. A small deposit is requested to confirm your booking and then the balance is due before the shoot or on the day.
How long will it take for me to receive the final images?
1 -2 weeks for your typical session, this time is for me to complete all my edits and checks. If it is a wedding or a large event then I would advise 4 - 5 weeks. A few days after the shoot, I like to give you a sneak peek of some of your images whilst keeping you update with the process along the way.
How many images will I receive?
I'm very snappy happy! On a typical 1 hour portrait shoot, I usually send out a minimum of 50 photos. This is approx figure, please don't be disheartened if you receive less; sometimes less is more! For events & weddings this number significantly increases.
How will I get my images back?
You will receive your photos via an online album to your email address (which you provide). This album is password protected but you can share this email amongst friends and family. You can view this album on your phone or tablet but you can only download the images when the email is viewed on your laptop or PC. (For social media usages etc you can screenshot your images from your phone!) alternatively you can request your images on a USB for an additional £10.00 payment. You can decide this at anytime. I will also be looking at uploading a client area on the website soon too.
I can't download my online album
After a certain period of time - usually 4-6 months the album is removed online but 9 times out of 10 I will still have access to your photos so get in touch with me and if available, I will upload them again for you.
What if I want the images printed?
I would advise you to order a USB stick with your images (extra £10.00) so you take this into a photo printing services, alternatively I can provide you with a link for a suppliers direct site.
I want to book my wedding with you, what happens next?
Perfect! Lets check that the date is available for me, I then require a 25% deposit to secure your date. Approximately 4 months before the big day, I like to meet up to go through some details about you both and your big day, then we plan a pre-wedding shoot and before we know it the wedding day has arrived!
My baby turns one and I want a cake smash, what happens next?
So we choose a time based around your childs routine. When they have had a nap, some dinner and alert is the best time! Il bring over the mobile studio and get this set up at your home. You will need to provide an outfit (which you don't mind getting a bit cake messy) and a cake (good tip: buy a couple of victoria sponges and icing them yourself - icing colours to match the outfit choice will be amazing!)
What do you do with the images afterwards?
These often get used within my marketing materials and on social media. If this is something you don't feel comfortable about then please let me know.
