FAQs

 

 

 

How much are your family, children and baby photoshoots? 

Children, family 7 cake smash shoots are £80.00 for 15 edited photos sent electronically. 

Newborn shoots are £100.00 as these can take alot longer to settle baby & let them get to sleep. 

If you would like them on a USB please add £14.00.

Is there the option to have them printed, or made into canvasees or framed after?

Yes I can do these for you after your photoshoot, please see pricing guide for other product information. Packages are also available to save money on mulitple items. 

How do I choose my favourite photos? 

After the shoot we will go through your photos and you can select there and then or I can send them as small low qualitly samples that you can decide in your own time. 

What if I want to choose more than 15 photos? 

You can choose as many as you like but they are £5 each per extra photograph. 

How long for me to get my photos back from a shoot? 

Please allow 2 weeks for editing, although I aim to get them back quicker than that. If you need them back for a specific date, ie. a present please let me know. 

Do you take a deposit for the photoshoot? 

I don't take deposits and trust people give me plenty of notice if they need to cancel or postpone, although I understand with children sometimes it is inevitable. 

Do you provide outfits for newborns?

I do have some yes for girls and boys, but am happy to use whatever you bring too. 

Can other family members come to watch?

Yes thats fine if you want Grandparents on hand for location shoots, but do ask only 2 adults maximum at my studio as its a very small space. 

Do you do cake smash shoots?

I most certainly do yes, but ask you to provide your own cake and any balloons. 

What area do you cover?

I like to shoot locally near Mansfield and surrounding areas. I would consider going further afield but the price of the shoot would reflect the extra time and travel expenses.

Where do you shoot?

I like to shoot outdoors but do have a studio, which I use for my newborn shoots and cake smashes. I am also happy to come to your house.

 

How long will the shoot last?

Please allow around an hour for children and family shoots, children get fed up after this time.

How long do newborn shoots last?

Allow 3  hours for newborn shoots as time is needed to settle baby, any feeds and nappy changes. 

What if the weather is bad on the day of our outdoor shoot?

Please be aware outdoor shoots may need to re arranged due to bad weather. 

How do we make sure we get everything we want from the shoot?

Before the day I will discuss your expectations from the shoot to ensure we capture everything you want. 

What should I wear for the shoot?

Colours or pastels work nicely. Try to avoid logos or anything too distracting. There is no need to dress matching but complementing each other is great. For babies & very young children studio shoots, barefeet or socks look best as its only the soles of shoes that can be mainly seen.

Newborns I tend to use a wrap, but have some cute little outfits too. For toddler siblings I use a complimentary wrap to make a top, or you can bring your own outfit.

What should you wear for outdoor shoots?

The same as above, nothing with logos or too distracting. If we are shooting on the farm or woods it can get muddy so bring wellies, best shoes can be put on at the last minute though. Depending on time of year either warm or cool clothes. Heels not recommended, unless your a professional at walking in them! 

Can we have a particular theme for the photoshoot?

If you are wanting a particular theme, Princess , cowboys etc we can discuss this before the shoot but feel free to give me your ideas and don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.

How do we get the photos printed from the shoot? 

They are yours to print & use as you wish, but I do recommend you let me get them professionally printed for you for two reasons, I can make sure the colour profile is correct & I can make sure the crop is right & there are no tops of heads missing, etc. The same goes for canvasses & frames too. If you let me know the exact size you need I can make the photo work & fit, rather than you finding out after you have them printed that they don't. 

What age are newborn/ baby shoots up to? 

Up to 6 months when babies are starting to be more mobile, then a normal shoot time will apply. If you want the real sleepy newborn shots though these are best 4 to 14 days old. But any age you can get amazing photos.
