It contains a few questions to answer about how you want to be photographed and with whom. It’ll also show you an invoice and an agreement about what to expect as well information about the products and pricing available to you, so you can feel totally informed and confident about choosing me to capture your images.
I’ll send you confirmation and we’ll chat via email ahead of your session to make sure you feel comfortable about the finer details such as what to wear and where to come on the day. If we’re heading to a location, we’ll make sure we’re both clear on the our arrangements.
Exciting! I’ll look forward to meeting you!
“Kate’s work is beautiful and stylish. She has a brilliant way of working with children and makes the shoot very relaxed. She managed to perfectly capture the characters of both of my children, leaving me with a beautiful keepsake.”
On the day, whether we’re outside or at your home, we’ll chat before the camera comes out so you feel relaxed. We’ll move into taking photos as your children discover the surroundings or show me their toys, chill out with a book on the bed, sleep in the crib or shyly snuggle up to you for a cuddle. I’ll gently guide you to elicit some natural interaction and expressions whilst also creating a few of those more classic portraits with individuals and different combinations. I’ll be looking for flattering angles and light as you enjoy time with your children.
If we’re at home, we can pop on some music, read a story, or some of the other things you do together, from cooking to craft! I have lots of ideas to help us capture some authentic moments. Even just a big family hug (with a few tickles!) can create magic on camera!
If we’re meeting at an outdoor location, we can go for a stroll as we chat and relax into the session, photographing fairly organically as we discover the best spots. We can blow some bubbles or play a game of ‘Simon Says’! We’ll often go with the children’s natural instincts to explore and play, with some guidance and prompts from me to foster those natural expressions and interactions between your family. I’ll get you to have a hug, go for a hand-in-hand walk, play or climb, sit together, whatever feels intuitive on the day.
In whichever setting your choose, it’s very much a collaborative process, so you’ll always feel comfortable.
I have both a teaching and a drama background, so I’m confident with children and fully appreciate that they are the stars of the show here!
After your session, I’ll carefully craft a beautiful collection of fully-edited images for your gallery and/or film. Around 14 days after your session, I’ll send you these to you. At this point, you can either make your image choices, or else download all the images if you’ve purchased a full session in which all the images are automatically included and yours to keep.
You are welcome to organise your own photo products, or else purchase professional items from my a la carte list.
Please feel reassured that there is no pressure to purchase anything you do not wish to do so. You and I only want you to have what you truly love, want and can afford. I can show you how other people just like you and with similar preferences and budgets are enjoying their images, whether on the wall or in print, and can take away all that hassle and technicalities.
Payment for any product choices will be taken at this time so we can process your order and get your images ready for you to start enjoying!
