I've got answers!
Which location should I choose?
A great option is to shoot in & around your house. In the comfort of your own home, I will be able to create a true family documentary story. I do also love to shoot outdoors. Tell me some of your favourite local places and we can work out a perfect shoot location.
Any styling recommendations?
Of course you want to look & feel your best during your photoshoot! I love to help with styling ideas to ensure your photos capture beautiful natural moments. I will always advise to not wear black and please no prints or brand names on the tops. Also, a bit of colour coordination will look nice, but you won’t have to go too matchy. Keep in mind, we want to keep it natural. Might speak for itself, but a tidy house looks nicer in the pictures than a messy one. Any other questions we can discuss over a cup of coffee (or a call) and I will prepare you as much as I can, so we can make it a fun and lovely experience.
How and when will I receive my pictures?
You will receive a little sneak peek within one week of your photo shoot. Your full gallery will be ready for you no later than three weeks after our session together. I will always try my best to get your images to you earlier if my schedule allows. Your gallery will be delivered digitally via email.
What if the weather is bad or we need to cancel?
If bad weather hinders an outdoor shoot, we will re-book free of charge. If it’s just cloudy, the shoot can still proceed. If you need to cancel due to sickness or other circumstances, 24 hours notice is needed to reschedule your shoot. In case of late cancellation, without reasonable cause, 50% of the agreed fee will be charged.
Where are you based? Are you willing to travel?
I am currently based in beautiful Edinburgh, Scotland. But, heck yes I'll travel! Anytime!! I have a major travel bug! Please, note that travelling fees may apply, so make sure to include your location when you do get in touch with me. (The price of the photoshoot includes the first 10km distance of travel (both ways). Anything further will incur an additional travel fee of 35p per km.)
Can I afterwards buy more images than mentioned in the package I booked?
Absolutely! You can buy per piece for an additional fee. But often I will offer you various "package upgrade" options, which allows you to choose more images from the gallery. Standard costs of 1 extra HR & WR pic - £10
Will you send the RAW files as well?
Unfortunately not. You will receive all the imaged in Jpeg format. You can download them in web-size or high res. The high res will be large enough for big prints. I make the gallery selection for you. And don't worry, I spend a lot of time going through all the images, and I will deliver all the photos that deserve to be shared with you. (basically, the only photos you won't be getting are the ones you don't want to get. :))
How to make & confirm a booking?
A booking can be made via email, phone or website contact form. The booking is only confirmed after receiving a confirmation email. This email will contain; the invoice, including photoshoot fee and potential extra costs; the details of the photoshoot, such as location, date, time and duration.
Which family members are included in the family photoshoot package?
Your photoshoot includes your immediate family unit; you, your partner and kids. Should Grandma, cousins or a distant Aunt wish to also be in the shoot, there will be an additional fee. Pets get a special waiver and may pass freely through shots as they please!
My question is not on this list; how can I get in touch?
