Your questions answered

for families

What kind of photographer are you?

I am a documentary style photographer. That means I don’t do any awkward posing. 

Can we get a couple of traditional family portraits?

Of course, I do not mind using 10-15min to take a couple of traditional portraits. 

Can grandparents and pets be part of the shoot too?

I actually love multi-generational shoots and pets are part of your family!

What if my child doesn't behave?

There is no such thing as ‘doesn’t behave’ in my book. It also helps that there is no posing and the children are free to play and be themselves. You will get beautiful photographs with real emotions. 

Is our home okay for a photo or film shoot?

Definitely! It doesn’t matter if your house is small, messy or you’re doing building works. It is all part of your story. 

I feel self-conscious about having my photos taken or being filmed.

I completely understand, the strange thing is I am camera shy as well. We will get to know each other a bit in a phone or skype call beforehand and when I come on the day of your shoot we will first get accustomed to each other before I pull out my camera. I definitely won’t jump at you from behind the front door and put a camera right up your noses (pinky swear).

The best thing about a picture is that it never changes,
even when the people in it do.”

— Andy Warhol

Where do your shoots take place?

To create my natural and relaxed style of photos I will photograph activities that you normally do as a family at home and/or outdoors; from pancake breakfasts, a walk in the forest, dancing to 80s music, tickles with full-belly laughs, planting flowers in your garden to lots of splashes during bath time and putting the children to bed. It is up to you what part of your life I will capture, but if you can’t choose then I could even do a full ‘day in a life’ session. 

When do your shoots take place?

I do shoots during the week and on the weekends. My weekend shoots are more popular, so please do be fast to arrange these. Just send me a message or give me a call and we will put a date in the diary. 

How about the weather?

When discussing your photo or film session, we will always plan a backup plan for any outdoor activities to accommodate bad weather. If you only would like to be outdoors, then we can rearrange another date, but this does have to be done 3 days before the shooting day. 

 

Do you have insurance?

I am fully insured. I have public liability and personal indemnity insurance. 

How long will I have to wait before I see my photos or film?

You will receive your photographs within 3 weeks. A 1-3 minute family film will take 5-6 weeks to send to you and for a 10-15 minute Life story film you will need to be a bit more patient as there is a lot of editing involved. You will receive your Life Story film in roughly 12 weeks time.

What products do you offer? And how do I order them?

I offer high-end glicee prints and there are also possibilities of ordering bespoke photo albums. You can always add these afterwards and upgrade your package.
