I provide a location based portrait service, which can be at your home or at a location of your choice. If you are looking for a studio style session I can bring my portable lighting equipment and backgrounds, all of which can be quickly and easily set up in your home or location. I can work with quite small space, however I should point out the type of equipment and backdrops available would be dependant on your chosen space. I will cover all this before the shoot though so don’t worry too much as It’s my aim to be totally flexible to your needs. Talking of which, a portrait photography shoot with me is not just about Family Portrait Photography, I'm flexible to your needs; and will cover Lifestyle photography, Maternity photography, Baby photography and child Photography. I also offer portfolio shoots for models and other artists as well as profile headshot photography (See separate section)
My typical portrait session will usually take between 1-2 hours, however my style is to be your Personal Photographer; I like to spend a little time getting to know you; to understand what you are looking for from the session and working at a pace that's comfortable for you. I never want you to feel like you're being rushed or pushed; and I want you to be relaxed and enjoy your session as much as the end product. My personal approach doesn’t just stop there, I will spend time to identify the best images from your session, apply basic retouches as necessary and if you are struggling to decide, I’m only too happy to help or offer advice from a ‘photographers eye’ and I promise never resort to hard sells!
Many photographers offer designed set packages for their portraits which is great; however I also know that every client is different and want different things from a portrait session than everyone else; some will want wall displays, some will want a folio book or story book and others just want to use prints as gifts for family and friends.
I’m in the process of updating my package deals in order to find the best value for my clients – Please contact me for more information on package availability and prices.
I believe that the best way for you to enjoy your portraits is in its physical form. A printed product is tangible and intrinsic in nature; it protects and preserves your memories in a way that shows that you care about what's close to you and it can show others what you value most. At the same time, I also understand that we live in a digital age with many photographs being shared with family and friends via the internet on social networking sites and emails.
So why not get the best of both and save money?
If you have opt for a portrait package; then for every individual printed product you purchase you'll also receive the full size digital file, plus smaller watermarked social media (facebook etc.) version on a CD/DVD for free!
