What To Expect From Your Portrait Session

Having your photo taken can be a stressful experience, giving your time and trust to another person, it can be a vulnerable experience. I appreciate this whole-heartedly and want to do everything I can to put you at ease, as that's also where the most natural, relaxed images are likely to come from.

Listed below are the steps of a typical shoot, which I hope will go some way towards providing a level of expectation of what's involved, and make you much more comfortable to book a shoot with me.

Step 1: Planning

Your portrait session is all about you, but In order to deliver the images you want, I need to understand your needs, so first we'll have a chat either online or in-person to discuss exactly what I can do for you, and what you can do to help me deliver this. 

We'll discuss outfits, hair and makeup options and how to prepare for the shoot, as well as the intended use of the final product, whether it's social media profile or a stunning wall piece to be admired for generations.

We'll arrange a time and location at your convenience, whether it's an environmental portrait in a garden/park or a studio, either mine or somewhere local to you, and if applicable confirm relevant booking fees.

Step 2: The Shoot

On the day of your session we'll meet at the shoot location, and have a quick review of outfits and a chat, I'll answer any questions to make sure you're nice and relaxed.

Then, I'll do everything I can to make sure we capture a set of lovely portraits together that reflect you at your best, so you'll be proud to show off!

While sessions have a rough time slot, I won't stop until you're happy with what we're creating, but also subject to outfit changes, bad weather, location problems or even technical issues!

Step 3: The Results

A few days after the shoot, I'll have the best photos edited and ready for viewing.

This can be done either at your home, a studio, a coffee shop or even over a video call to help with social distancing and isolation.

Once you're happy with your choices, I will have them printed and prepared, and hand-deliver the finished images to make sure you're 100% happy.
