FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
When should I book?
We are typically booked a few weeks in advance, although we will make every effort to arrange a suitable date and time for your session.
How long does the session last?
Our sessions last from 45 minutes to one hour. We take time to ensure you and your family feel relaxed and comfortable. Portraits should capture a feeling, attitude or emotion that will be remembered forever.
What should we wear?
In advance of your session, every portrait customer will be invited into the studio for a 10-15 minute planning session. We’ll show you the portrait styles we use, chat through what to wear, the type of photographs you want, and give you some ideas on products and prices.
Our style of photography is informal and would like you to feel comfortable during the session. We can discuss before the session but in general we ask for no logos, strips or spots. For young children and babies we recommend white or pastel colours for girls and bright colours such as blue for boys. Bright contrasty colors usually work well for fun children shoots whereas co-ordinated black, white or block colour t-shirts work well for families. Obviously at the end of the day the choice is yours, we have a variety of backgrounds to suit different colour clothing.
