FAQ

Where are you based and do you travel?

I'm Edinburgh based in UK and yes I love to travel! If you want me to photograph your story, it will require a travel fee. If the location of the shoot is farther than 15 miles of the postcode EH14 please add an additional £0.50p/mile to your session fee.

How far in advance do I have to book a session with you?

Always try to plan ahead to avoid disappointment.

WHERE WILL MY SESSION BE HELD ?

We will discuss the ideal location for your shoot during the pre-shoot consultation. This can be a country park, a beach, a field, woodlands or somewhere else that is special to you and your family. Remember, the weather may force us to change our location choice on the day.

HOW TO DRESS FOR FAMILY PHOTOSHOOT?

Dress to suit the weather. A wardrobe reflects who you are. I do not recommend matching but rather coordinating. Remember that clothes must be comfortable! Don't wear awkward sets just because they're pretty. A satisfied mother looks much better with freedom of movement wear whatever you feel comfortable and pretty in.

WHAT TIME DO THE SESSIONS TAKE PLACE?

The ideal time is in the morning; I like to meet my families around 9-11 am. This is for a few reasons: the early morning light is lovely, children can often be at their best after a good night's sleep. If mornings don't work for you, I'm happy to find a time that suits your family.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE WEATHER IS BAD?

It would be perfect if we could order the weather! If you are happy with indoor images - we can just do the whole shoot indoors from your home. There is so much we can do there.

As long as it is dry, we can go out. If it is cold, we bundle up. However, heavy rain or high winds will mean we have to stop the outdoor shoot.

I will keep an eye on the weather forecast before our shoot. If it is looking horrible, I will contact you in the morning of your session day to discuss other options in the morning.This may be changing the time of the shoot or rescheduling for another day.

WHAT HAPPEN IF MY CHILDREN DO NOT BEBAVE ?

Parents often worry about the little ones playing up and the shoot being a disaster, but I’ve photographed many families, and we’ve always got some lovely shots.
My biggest advice is to avoid asking children to smile at the camera and threats to behave themselves, have fun, be silly with the kids, and work with me to get natural smiles! Distracting them with tickles or funny games tends to work better than telling them off….and certainly, it’s worth relaxing any normal rules you’ve got for the hour of the shoot.

I’ve got two unruly little girls myself, so that I won’t be judging parenting skills ;)

CAN I SHARE THE COST AND INVITE EXTENDED FAMILY ALONG?

Yes! Of course. Lots of clients arrange a shoot along with their parents and/or siblings. We would take individual and group shots.

It’s wonderful to include grandparents in the family portrait.

HOW LONG MUST WE WAIT FOR THE GALLERY TO BE READY? HOW WILL IT BE DELIVERED?

Within 2 weeks from your session, a private gallery will be available to view. I will choose the best images for your gallery. I look carefully at each and every image I capture at your session and hand-select the best images.

I guarantee a minimum of 50-80 images, but there are usually many more. Lucky you! Your gallery will be active for 14 days.

HOW WILL I CHOOSE FROM ALL THE IMAGES YOU'VE SENT ME?

You don't have to choose! My pricing has been created to get the very best savings when you purchase all of your images. Personally, I can never choose a few images from a gallery of my own children, so I don't want you to have to choose either! I also offer a lot of images within your gallery so that you get a lot of value from your investment when purchasing all images.
