A chance for some quality family time...
BEFORE YOUR SESSION
I provide an experience that is stress free and above all - fun! After an informal chat and introductory conversation, 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. The session fee covers phone calls, emails and information sent leading up to the day and the session itself.
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 beforehand and that in itself can have it's advantages, especially if there are little ones to photograph. We will also discuss the type of shots you hope to display in your home as that will determine how I will shoot on the day.
ON THE DAY
It's 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 9 years and seen many a tantrum so you don't need to worry about your wee ones not playing ball. For more on that, see here. 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.
With your permission, you can view a couple of the images from your session the very same day on my Facebook page if you really can't wait to see! I send you a text message when they are up on the page.
Approximately two weeks after your family photo session you will be presented with your images in the form of a stunning online gallery with full access to the product store where you can treat yourself to some of the delights that behold you there.
Prepare to get emotional... have a tissue ready!
You will have 30 days to view your images and pick out favourites. I will offer guidance and give advice where needed when it comes to choosing something perfect for displaying your chosen images. Canvases, eye catching frames and minimalist wall displays to name a few, can all be ordered from the store accessed direct via your gallery. 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.
You can choose between one of my digital and print packages or alternatively, may decide that picking an item A-La-Carte is more favourable. Click the pricing link below for more information!

Kirsty was professional but personal and produced fabulous results. The gallery prints made stunning wall art and we now have fabulous memories to enjoy for years to come.
She caught a beautiful light which resulted in glowing images of the girls, which brought their grandmother to tears when I presented them to her.
Quick to respond to questions when planning, understanding of your wishes for types of photos and puts you right at ease.
