Personal work & bespoke family shoots
A time capsule of this crazy life
Because real life stories trump fairytales
If you come to my home studio you will see lots of pictures of my family up on my walls. Some are clean and tidy studio shots, some are family members cuddling in beautiful landscapes, but many are of our messy, everyday life. I love finding the beauty in the muddle and chaos of family life. These are the images that make my heart truly sing. These are the images that we stand on the stairs and look at, reliving the stories they hold time and time again. They are not everyone’s cup of tea, but they are my true life.
Capturing these sorts of images for clients is a privilege but also a significant investment – for them and me – in time and energy. These shoots are all bespoke and we will discuss what you want to get out of the shoot and plan accordingly. Shoots will often involve multiple locations or a day out together so that we can really capture the different emotions throughout the day.
(I decided to do this gallery of images all in B&W as this is usually my preference BUT your images will be shot in colour and you will have the option to have your printed products in either colour, B&W or a combination)
PLANNING YOUR SHOOT
We will have a consultation, either in person or over the phone, to discuss what you would like to get out of your shoot, and the location(s) you would like to feature.
A range of luxury prints, wall art, albums and desk presentation products are available you can look at the range here and also request a full product brochure before booking.
Session fees depend on your brief and will flex to meet your requirements. As a guide, a local shoot for up to 2.5 hours is £195 midweek, £250 weekend.
Your session fee includes:
– A pre-booking consultation. We will talk through what you are looking to get out of your session, how it all works etc before you make your booking.
– A pre-session guide. This will help you think through what to wear, what to bring etc
– Your photography session
– My time to select and edit your images, preparing a gallery of images for you to select from.
Session fee is payable to secure your booking.
After the session we will arrange a viewing and ordering session. You can select from a range of wall art, albums, prints and digital files. Typically, clients spend a further £600-£2000 on products.
Please understand, session fees include my time and talent at the shoot, and the work to prepare the images for your viewing. Session fees do NOT include any prints, products or digital images. These are purchased separately at your viewing session.
