We have a range of packages from standard sittings and packages to "Party Packages" for older children, "Watch Them Grow" packages for newborns through to toddlers to makeover shoots. Please email us for our Portrait Pricelist.
We shoot predominantly on a white-background to give that modern contempory "High-Key" style to our Photographs. We also have a black backdrop, a pink wall and a graffiti wall from a local artist.
Booking a Shoot with us couldn't be easier. Simply email us on email@example.com to request Pricelists and/or to book a date for your Shoot.
For your ease we have a few payment options. In the studio we can accept cash or most debit or creditcards (subject to a small additional admin fee). After your shoot we can accept cash in the studio or take payments via direct bank transfer or Paypal.
What to Wear for your Shoot
This might be easy for some people but there are some things to consider when deciding what to wear for your Photo Shoot. For example: Is there a theme? Or are you being colour coordinated with other people/family members?
Because we shoot mainly on a white backdrop, which gives you the modern, “High-Key” style photographs, we highly recommend bold/rich colours. The reason being is that it gives more of a contrast with the backdrop. Black clothing or denim jeans and a plain t-shirt also look good. Patterns are generally a ‘No-No’ unless it's individual shots. This rule generally applies when there are a few people in the Sitting as a clash of patterns can be distracting when you see the final images.
A tip we've learnt for Children’s Portraits is to bring the Child's favourite toy. This helps bring a sense of home to the studio for them and gets them settled if they're a bit shy. We have a few dressing up hats but feel free to bring any other props you wish to make the Photos that little bit more special!
What would you like your Photographs to look like?
We mainly do relaxed and fun poses, which are a mixture of head and shoulder shots, full body, lying down, kneeling, sideways and even upside down. This casual, relaxed type of shoot is very much the vogue at the moment and we aim to make it as fun as possible. However, we do get requests from customers who still prefer the traditional or formal type photographs that are mainly from the Waist up including head and shoulder Portraits.
Please let us know if you'd like formal/traditional Photographs before your shoot.
Also you are required to remove your shoes as the rubber or heels can ruin the backdrops so don't forget about your feet (unless shoes are a part of your outfit, in which case we need them to be clean and not have been worn when you arrive).
What can we bring?
You can bring anything that you would like to appear in the photos. For example, we had a family ask if they could wear something or have props in the photos that displayed something about each of them. One of the family was in to Kick Boxing so wore her full gear in a few of the shots, including some action shots. One of the lads is a trucker so wore his hi-vis, sunglasses and had his all-important Yorkie Chocolate Bar. The other son can be seen to the right...juggling! Bring any prop you like, as long as it is portable.....if you car is your favourite possession unfortunately we can't quite fit those in the studio, however, we do specialised automotive location shoots, just like a magazine feature for your pride and joy.
As we said above bringing your child's favourite toy can help to make your child feel more settled and when they look back in many years will bring back nice memories.
Is your shoot for a Particular Occasion?
