PREPARING FOR YOUR SESSION
Your experience begins with an initial creative consultation at the studio, or in your own home. This is where we can talk about what you would like to get out of your shoot, and I can get to know a little about your family and what it is about your loved ones you would like to capture. In a home consultation I will also be able to advise you on how to tie your artwork into your home environment, in a way that brings your decor and color schemes to life, and ensures that your art is inspired by you. I can also help you choose what clothing and colours will best work in your shoot, and meet your child’s favourite teddy bear (and your child of course!) In the studio I will be able to show you through our extensive range of beautiful printed products, and help you select from a range of props and creative options for your session. This is ideal for studio based sessions like maternity and newborn.
Your session will be relaxed and informal, and will take around 1.5 hrs or 3 hours for newborn sessions. During this time I will take a variety of shots, from beautiful individual portraits that capture those long eyelashes or cheeky grin, to fun family shots that are full of life. Whatever it is you want to capture I will make sure we get it, and have fun doing it!
I suggest choosing a location for your session where your kids are comfortable (at home or a local park) or somewhere that is special to your family. If you are not sure I always have a list of go to places that I love to photograph. At the end of your session I will make sure we have a follow up time booked for you to view your images, and trust me by that time you will hardly be able to wait!
After your shoot, the creative momentum continues while I work on your images, keeping in mind your personal taste, and style to ensure your artwork is a true reflection of you.
YOUR ORDERING APPOINTMENT
This is it! The moment when all your dreams, planning, and excitement come to fruition! Time to celebrate your unique wee family, and see all the gorgeousness we created. Your ordering appointment takes place back at the studio, and 1-2 weeks after your shoot. I suggest choosing a time when either the little ones are asleep (in the case of newborns), or are otherwise occupied ( Hello gran or granddad!) so you can give your images your full attention. I will play you your images in a personalised movie, which is a fantastic way to view them, and you will be able to go through a selection process to pick your favourites. From there you can decide on how you want to present your images, and we will be able to design something perfect for you based around your home interior, so you have something that is truly unique!
