Frequently Asked Questions

1. What to Wear?


It is recommended not to wear patterns on the day of the shoot, to avoid clashing with others in the portrait and simply as it can draw attention away from the subject themselves.  Logos should also be avoided as they can age your photos dramatically within just a few years.  If being photographed in a group, avoid wearing strong colours (such as red or white ) as this can lead to certain members of the group to stand out more than the rest of you.


2. When to Pay?


Once you have booked a session, you will be required to pay a booking fee for a portrait session.  The remaining sum will be due on the day of the shoot.  Images will not be edited and posted until full payment has been received from the client.


3. How far in advance do we need to book?


Please book your session at least two weeks in advance to avoid disappointment.


4. What if someone is ill on the day of the photo-shoot, or there is an emergency that stops us from attending?


I am very family orientated and understand that illness and emergencies cannot be avoided.  In these instances, a mutually agreeable alternative date would be arranged with no additional charge.  However, I would still ask that you give as much notice as possible as the notice period of 7 days would usually apply under all other circumstances.


5. How and when do I get to view the images from the photo-shoot?


After the photo-shoot, all viable raw images will be uploaded onto a password protected gallery for you to view and choose which images you would like edited.  Once you have made your choices, fully edited versions will be uploaded onto a dowloadable gallery within a two week period.  Your images can then be shared and printed as and when you please.  I also provide a professional printing service if you would like professional lab quality.


6. Are you insured?


I am fully ensured with full public liability insurance. I am have full DBS clearance.


7. What if the weather is unsuitable on the day?


We can either reschedule or I can come to your home or another indoor location to take your images.
