Won’t we feel awkward? 
One of my natural abilities is to make people feel calm and relaxed in front of the camera. I know it’s not easy which is why i give advice and tips on how to prepare and what to expect. I’ll talk to you a lot during your session, guiding you on what to do and talking to your kids. I promise you’ll leave thinking ‘that wasn’t so bad’!

What should the kids wear?
You don’t need to dress them super smart unless you want to and they’re happy with that on the day. Do try to dress them in plain clothes, no character t-shirts or large logos as they are very distracting in photos. If you’re bringing 2 children they don’t need to wear the same but try to make sure their t-shirts/jumpers/dresses etc complement each other. For instance we don’t want one child wearing orange and the other wearing hot pink, they just don’t work together! Or one in large florals and another in checks. Plain clothes work best. Try to avoid white as it’s such a stark colour it provides too much contrast with the autumn colours. Try to wear colours that compliment autumn, so dark oranges, reds, dark greens and blues. 

How many children can be booked in one session?
A maximum of 4 please. These sessions are only 30 minutes with little time between sessions so the more children there are the less variety there will be, and the quicker they will need to listen to instructions!

Can parents or Grandparents be in the photos too?
Of course! These are family sessions aimed at being relaxed and fun with minimal posing, although I’ll ask you to all stand or sit together, it’s nice to get relaxed portraits after all! If you are sure you just want the session to be for the kids that’s fine though. 

What if we’re late?
To get the most out of your 30 minute session it would be prudent to be on time! If you are late your session will be cut accordingly so as not to impact on the next session. If you miss your time slot entirely and all sessions are fully booked we will try to rearrange it for another Saturday but it’s such a busy time of year a reschedule may not be possible.  

What if it rains? 
I have set aside two Saturday’s in my diary so if the weather forecast is truly awful we can re-schedule to the other date, which is the 28th October. If the forecast is light drizzle but brightening up on the 21st, the sessions will still go ahead. 

When will we get our photos?
Your photos will be edited and uploaded to a private online gallery within 2 weeks. You will then be able to choose 5 high resolution photos to download immediately. Your gallery will have up to 15 photos to choose from.  

Can we buy extra photos?
Of course! The price will depend on how many photos are in your gallery so you’ll have the option of buying individual photos or the whole gallery when it’s ready for you to view it.
