YOUR BASED IN MANCHESTER BUT DO YOU TRAVEL ?
Hell yes, I absolutley do travel…! just give me some details of where and when and I can work out a bespoke price for you…
HOW WILL THE DAY PAN OUT ?
I’ll be joining you during bridal prep, I’ll say hello to all who’s with you but then nip off and photography the dress, shoe & flowers, this gives you a chance to get used to me being around, I know the nerves can be flying high at this point, then I’ll have a cuppa with you and just capture you lot getting ready. I’ll leave for the ceramony about 45 mins before you so I can get your guest arriving whare I will continue my fly on the wall bit through the day and right up to your first dance plus the boozy bits just after…
WHAT IF WE HATE HAVING OUR PICTURE TAKEN ?
Well, your not the first person to be worring about this, I haven’t met a groom yet who’s looking forward to the portrait shots but remember this is documentary style and your portrait session is just a simply walk together, you two having a chat and a giggle, no looking at the camera and grinning like a cheshire cat, plus, close to your venue so your not missing for to long and you’ll be so used to me being around by the time this arrives, you’ll be pretty relaxed with the whole thing by then…
DO YOU DO GROUP SHOTS ?
yes I do do group shots, I like to do a full informal group shot of everyone and if the venue allows it, I use this time to do the confetti shot, bloody LOVE the confetti shot…! Then whilst your all together I’ll quickly wizz through the other groups shots you want, I dont spend ages on these, I just keep them moving and then pointing them in the direction of the bar when their done so your not stood around with face ache. So keep these to a minimum so they don’t take to much of your celebration time away, you’ve planned this day for months, make sure you enjoy every bit of it…
DO WE HAVE TO BOOK ?
It’s always best to book, especially at the weekends as it can get a bit busy.
DO YOU HAVE A STUDIO ?
I don’t have a studio, I love to do all my newborn shoots in your home where you are all much more relaxed and all your lovely things are around that you’ve been collecting for this little one over the last few months.
A newborn shoot takes around 2 hrs and sometimes a little bit more, so if siblings are involved they can just nip in and out as and when they please, dad can also nip off and make a brew or some lunch, so no one is sitting around feeling bored or playing up which definitely makes it stressful and this is exactly what I want to avoid, I want your shoot experience to be amazing and for you to feel calm and relaxed…
WHAT'S THE BEST AGE FOR A NEWBORN SHOOT ?
If you want the very sleepy shots then I’d say between 7 to 14 days but obviously there’s no guarantee… baby’s in charge.
The older your baby is the more aware they become of what’s going on, so they will often be looking right at me or bursting into tears, personally… I love it all, and the cuddles you give to settle them, is a perfect moment too…
Also, make sure you keep your baby clothes simple, just plain babygrows and vest will be really cute and we’ll use some throws to swaddle them up…
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR FOR OUR FAMILY PHOTO SHOOT ?
Firstly, wear what’s fitting for the environment, so maybe high heels in the woods might be a bit precarious, but then again, if that’s all you wear, then go with that. Try to coordinate your colour scheme, they don’t have to be the same but they should look good together.
Bring some props like a woolly hat, wellies or a brolly. If the kids have a favourite toy let them bring it with them, this could be a cuddly toy or even a scooter. I always bring bits like bubbles and a skipping rope, but if you’d like to add a little picnic, maybe just some cakes and a drink, this would add a nice little pitstop…
CAN WE BRING THE DOG ON OUR PHOTO SHOOT ?
Absolutely you can bring the dog, just as long as he’s well behaved and not going to dominate the shoot with pulling and running off or barking at everyone around us…
WHAT IF IT RAINS HARD ON OUR SHOOT DAY ?
A little bit of a shower during our shoot won’t be a huge problem but a downpour will definitely not be fun, so an element of flexibility will be needed, it may be that we choose morning or afternoon depending on which is looking best, but if this isn’t possible, we will reschedule to the next convenient date…
