What I Capture
It all comes down to the story- your story- getting you to connect to it and capturing it in photos you’ll love. Getting to know my clients and help them see themselves in a new light is at the core of what I do, and knowing how I connect best means that I choose to specialise in specific genres. The portraiture services I offer include:
Women & Men’s Portraiture • Couple’s Sessions • Maternity Sessions • Children & Teen’s Portraiture
As I follow my passions and specialise, it also means that I don’t cover all genres of portraiture. I don’t offer newborn, cake smash, baby and toddler, family nor event photography.
Everyone is different, so it goes without saying that your photo needs are just like you- unique. While the concept of a package may be the more conventional choice, I also offer an a la carte option that allows you to book just your session time. This sitting fee covers my talent, time and skill to give you a special experience as we capture who being your gorgeous self; from there you can purchase as many photos as you want from your private online gallery.
How do I book? All you need to do is email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0790865779 during office hours to set your session date, time and package. Then, as is industry standard, all I require to secure your date and time slot is a 50% booking fee for packages and 100% sitting fee for a la carte bookings; once that’s settled we can begin planning your session.
When should I book? As I’m typically fully booked 3+ weeks in advance and your session is carefully planned, I suggest not leaving bookings to the last minute. Sometimes I can accommodate short notice bookings but they may incur an additional 20% fee to cover admin and editing outside of my standard office hours.
What happens at a session? No matter the setting, my number one goal is to get you comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera- that’s the secret to gorgeous photos you’ll love. We start off your session easing you into being in front of the camera as I guide you to pose naturally and interact with your loved ones. Before you know it your session is wrapped and I have plenty of images to sort through.
What happens after my session? With your session over, your photos are immediately backed up. From there comes the task of sorting through all your images and selecting all of the best images and giving them a light edit. Then I will create a private online gallery for you to view and select your images for final retouching; this is typically within 48-72 hours of your session.
When will I receive my portraits? With having over a decade of experience in Adobe programs like Photoshop and Lightroom, I tend to edit and retouch fairly quickly ensuring a turnaround time of roughly 7-10 working days from when you submit your portrait selection. Print products typically take an additional 7-10 working days to manufacture and you’ll be contacted to collect as soon as they’re ready.
