BEFORE YOUR SESSION
I provide an experience that is stress free and above all - fun! After an informal chat and introductory conversation, you'll get a chance to ask any questions. Amongst other things, we'll discuss what you have in mind for the location and what you ultimately want to achieve from the experience. If you're happy with everything, we'll pin down a date for your shoot and I will collect the session fee. If you live in Edinburgh I'm also very happy to come to your home and talk in person if you'd prefer. It's always lovely to meet people prior to a session and that in itself can have it's advantages, especially if there are little ones to photograph. If you have any preferences on the type of shots you would potentially want to display in your home we can discuss that too as that will determine how I will shoot on the day.
My sessions are fun for all the family with many a giggle along the way. I very much go by how people interact with each other. I want you to be at ease and relaxed, and above all I want you to be yourselves! I'm quite happy working silently in the background capturing candid and spontaneous shots from a distance. Children are more reactive in outdoor locations and there's more chance to capture those 'living in the moment' style of shots if there's lots of space to run around. I've been doing this for 6 years and seen many a tantrum so you don't need to worry about your wee ones not playing ball. I come supplied with bubbles for those moments but sometimes it just requires some down time and a biscuit! Other than some gentle direction the session is fun and informal. I like to get a range of naturally posed shots in amongst the candid ones where possible, providing a good mix of images.
Approximately two weeks after the session you will be presented with your images. If you want to select any for display, I will offer guidance and give advice where required. It's sometimes very difficult to narrow it down! The most important goal for me is for you to be over the moon with the results, be it a fantastic and stunning wall portrait or a set of lovingly edited digitals.
