Your portrait experience - what's involved?
So if you're here, you must be interested in coming for some beautiful portraits? That's great, let me try and clear up some of your doubts...
Once you've contacted us and made an enquiry we'll agree to meet you for a chat, ideally you will come to us so that you can see our studio and the products that we provide. If that's not convenient, I can come to your home or we can meet for a coffee somewhere. We'll talk about how you would like the shoot to go, the style of images that appeal to you, for example classic portraits, something a bit quirky or maybe you'd like some intimate boudoir photographs. We'll discuss what kind of outfits you have?, if you don't have many nice dresses, talk to your friends and borrow some for the session, party dresses/gown's and anything sparkly that you'd like to be photographed in...we want you to look and feel like a movie star!. We also have a dress rail for you to look through.
Would you like to be photographed alone or maybe with a family member, a friend or partner?
Now we have a plan we can arrange a date for your shoot.
Because we want to give you the best photos that we can, it is recommended that you have a little pamper session before hand so that you look your absolute best...so book yourself a hair and makeup session at your favourite salon or alternatively we can arrange for you to have it done here before we start.
On the day of your shoot when you arrive, if you've decided to have you hair and make-up done here, we'll introduce you to the stylist and make you a brew. If not, we'll make you a brew anyway and have a look through your outfits to see which backgrounds would compliment them best. Then it's time to start creating your photographs! There's no need to worry about posing, we'll talk you through different poses to make you look natural and relaxed. In a 2/3 hour shoot we'll get through maybe 3/4 outfit changes so you'll have a variety to choose from.
After a week or two (depending on workload), you'll be asked back to view your lovely photographs for the first time...exciting!
There will be no pressure from us to make additional purchases, however we have a feeling that there maybe a few photographs that you won't be able to leave without.
