How it works
If you have decided to book a shoot (or are thinking of booking and would like to know more) a consultation is a good place to start. The consultation is free and there is no obligation to book. We can either meet in person or chat on the phone and we can talk about fun things like the kind of look you want portrayed, what to wear, how much it will cost and what value you will receive. If you decide to go ahead and book, we then set the date for the shoot. After the pre-shoot consultation described above, this is what to expect on the day of the shoot.
The Glamour/ Legacy / Intimate Session
A glamour / legacy shoot begins –
– A warm welcome with nibbles and hot / cold drinks.
– Hair and makeup to bring out your best features (which girl doesn’t like to be pampered?)
– A selection of lovely gowns to choose from (from vintage princessy to modern chic).
– And accessories to match your clothes and mood (bring on the jewels, said the queen 🙂 ).
once you are feeling relaxed and pampered, I then take you on a guided photoshoot which is designed to bring out your most beautiful and authentic self resulting in photos that are timeless and precious.
The Kids and Family Session
Usually the family shoot is an extension of a legacy shoot. The family arrives a couple of hours after the lady has has her makeover and shoot and then the family’s photos are taken.
For kids and teenage sessions, the kids are given time to settle in and get used to the space and myself so that they relax in front of the camera. For teenage girls, sometimes a makeup touch-up might be needed.
The Personal Branding Session
Wardrobe consultation is done during the pre-shoot consult. We can easily incorporate branding colours, products and accessories into the shoot. For the Full Branding session, 2-3 different looks are captured, hair and makeup is included for the ladies and these sessions usually take about 2-3 hours.
The Pet Session
Pet shoots typically take about an hour to an hour and half depending on how soon your pet settles and is ready to have their photos taken. It’s a good idea to bring its toys / blankets or any thing else that might make it more comfortable. After all, the studio, with the lights and a stranger might be intimidating for your pet.
Once the shoot is done, the images will be downloaded onto my laptop, I’ll pick out the best ones and show them to you, typically around 50-60. Once you’ve selected your favourites, I’ll lightly retouch them and send them to you (for digital selections) or send them to the lab (for printed products). You can then pick up your products once they arrive. And enjoy them forever.
The Reveal Session
A week or two later, you will come in for the photo reveal, where you will be presented with your beautifully professionally retouched images. You can then choose as many or as few images as you like. You only buy the ones you absolutely love. Payment plans are available.
