I allow an hour but sometimes we can get the shots quicker than that, sometimes, it may take a little longer. I dont like to rush children, particularly if they are shy or upset for any reason. It also depends on how many people are included in your session and if I'm photographing a baby it could take much longer as we have to ensure they are fed and happy!
On an outdoor location shoot, what happens in bad weather?
Sadly, there are occasions when the weather will prevent the shoot from taking place (though Im not adverse to a wellie boots, umbrella session!). If this should happen, then the shoot will be re-scheduled for a mutual agreeable date.
What happens after the shoot?
Whilst I edit, I'll release a 'Sneak Peek' on my Facebook page of a handful of your images (please let me know if you do not want this)and blog your session. Once the edit is complete, I'll email you a link to your online album. Prints, digital downloads or wall display can then be ordered from here and your gallery will be live for 6 weeks - plenty of time to choose your images!
What are your prices?
The sitting fee is £75.00. This covers the cost of the sitting only, and includes the shoot, and my editing time post-shoot. I also ask a sur-charge of £1 per mile once past a 20 mile radius of Braintree, Essex to cover fuel costs. I offer three different priced packages, Bronze, Silver and Gold. Each include the sitting fee, and a number of high resolution digital downloads. You can also opt to purchase prints or digital images separately to whatever suits your budget.
