Why should you hire me?
I specialise in natural light photography, as I believe it makes a photograph look truly beautiful. Using the sunlight the very essence of a picture can change in just a few seconds. Autumn is my favourite time of year when the sun is low in the sky as it creates a lovely warm glow, but likewise the bright freshness of spring can really light up a picture. I take pictures of families in their own environment where they feel comfortable and happy, so this could be at their home or a place that means a lot to them. Please take a look at my portfolio to see if you like my style. You can contact me on 07872639822 if you want to discuss your requirements over the phone. Or alternatively email firstname.lastname@example.org to ask for more details.
What does each shoot involve?
To book a photo shoot a £50 deposit is required.
Keeping things simple…
Becoming parents is an exhilarating time but can also be overwhelming, tiring and busy. That is why I keep new life shoot simple, the best time to shoot is when your little bundle is 7-14 days old as they are at their smallest and often more sleepy in the day. If you are planning a newborn shoot please let me know your due date so we book a provisional date, this we can look to move depending on when baby arrives!
I will come to your home with props and blankets and we will spend the first ten minutes discussing outfits, rooms you’d like to shoot in and the style of pictures i.e individual, mummy and baby, daddy and baby, family, siblings etc. The shoot can last from three to four hours giving time to capture the best pictures and allow for feeding, nappy changes and of course cuddles!
BABY LOVE, LITTLE PEOPLE and FAMILY
Time for fun…
My baby love shoots last two hours and captures babies when they’ve grown a little (think squidgy thighs, blowing raspberries, and those gorgeous gurgles) so usually six weeks up to a year old. Again I’ll bring an array of props and hats, and you can choose your own outfits.
My little people shoots are for children age 1+, which is a lot shorter and snappier as I know what happens when attention wanders – cue three year old temper tantrum! A one to two-hour shoot where we can play games, paint pictures, go out in the garden or dress up with my fancy dress box, I basically take direction from the kids!
These shoots are also a great time to get some wonderful family shots, so I expect mum and dad to be raring to go while I snap away.
Time to celebrate…
Your little bundle of joy is one!! Where did the time go.
Why not celebrate with a fun cake smash, babies love getting messy and this is a really fun shoot to do.
I’ll come to your home with a vinyl sheet and back drop, balloons and bunting. The shoot takes about an hour, where we I sit the baby with their cake and they basically get to play with the cake.
I can bring a cake for an additional charge or I’m happy for you to provide your own.
Time for you…
I remember looking back at photos when I was pregnant on my phone and thinking that I wish I had some nice photos of me to remember that special time (as oppose to a blurred selfie I took in the mirror). This mother-to-be shoot will capture this exciting time, either just you, with your partner and other children if you wish. These photos are taken in natural light, in a relaxed comfortable environment where you can just have a bit of time for you.
The best time for this shoot is from 28-36 weeks when you are at your most comfortable but also when you have a lovely bump to show off!
What happens next?
After the shoot I will send across some sneak peeks via social media so you can see some pictures straight away. I then aim to get your gallery of images on to my website (this is password protected) within two to three weeks. From there you can choose your images that you want on USB stick, which are yours to share with your friends and family. Full payment is required before digital images and prints are sent.
