QUESTIONS

I’m very happy to answer your questions personally, either by email or on the phone. But in the meantime, here are some of the most common questions I get asked…

where are you based?

I live in New Malden and have a small studio in my house which I use for product photography and headshots. I travel to clients all over London and Surrey. For my outdoor location shoots I often work in Nonsuch Park, Cannizaro Park in Wimbledon, Ham Common, the Hamptons in Worcester Park and my local parks around Motspur Park, Kingston, Raynes Park and New Malden too.

HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?

My weekend session fees are £95 and weekdays in term time are £50. Once you have seen your photographs you can choose from my collections (link here) or regular price list. Most of my clients spend between £450-£1500.

What should we wear?

I can give you lots of help with this in advance of your session, I will send over a pinterest board with some ideas, suitable to your season and location and some other helpful hints and tips. This will all be included in your welcome pack.

DO you sell digitals?
Yes – you can buy a gorgeous gift box which includes a minimum of 20 high resolution digitals (min) and a set of 4×6 gift prints.
What's the difference between and full session and mini session?

In your full session you will have the ability to choose the time and location of your photo shoot. Full sessions usually last up to 2 hours, we can fit timings around the kids schedule and even do a mix of at home and on location shots. We spend lots of time in various locations and I make sure to include portraits of each of the childen, sibling shots, family shots and lots of playing in between.

 

For a mini session the location is fixed and you will have approx 20 mins for your shoot in a specified slot and just one location. These work particularly well if you want to update some exising frames or have kids (or partners!) with very short attention spans. See some more on what to expect at my mini sessions here.

how long does a family photo shoot last?

My regular sessions usually last between 1-2 hours depending on the location and age of the children. I only book one of these sessions a day, so you have full flexibility over the timing of the session to work around your families schedule, babies nap times, weather etc.

how long will it take to get the photographs?
After your shoot I visit you at home to show your photographs, we go through and pick out your favourites and then I will show you the available products. Digital packages and prints take a week to be delivered, frames will take 2 weeks and albums 4 weeks after you have approved the layouts.
Do you take photographs for websites?
Yes! I work with a lot of corporates and small businesses providing photographs for websites and marketing materials, business headshots or social media. You can see some more details about my commercial work or business lifestyle images here
Do you do headshots for linkedin
Yes. I work with a lot of business people for updating their LinkedIn profile photographs. You cn see more of my headshot work HERE. I provide a personal service with shoots taking place in my home studio in New Malden, or can visit you at a convenient location. I also work with many businesses providing headshots for their staff.
I hate having my photograph taken, can you still help me?
I will let you into a secret, I”m really camera shy too! I think that’s why I’m always taking the photos! I have so many people telling me that they hate having their photograph taken. My mission is to make you feel relaxed and ensure that the shots I get are you looking your most natural. One of the most common things that people say to me after photo shoots and in my reviews is that I was able to put them at ease, even though they were nervous.
