Frequently asked questions with answers about maternity, newborn, and family sessions

Are you open for business and what precautions are you taking with regards to COVID-19?

Regarding the government guidelines, we must practice social distancing, wear a face covering and practice regular hand washing or hand sanitisation during our sessions. You can find more information on the Socially Distanced Sessions Guide.

How can I book my session?

You will need to book the session directly with me. Sessions are booked according to my availability. Please send me an email with details about the type of session are you interested in, preferred term, and location (Contact Me). Reservation requires a deposit of £50 in order to secure your date. The remaining part of the payment is due on the day of the session.

How much it cost?

You can find information about prices on my Pricing Page. My clients usually choose the standard package.

Do you work on weekends?

I can be available on Saturdays for a standard sessions.

What time of the day is best for the photo session?

I usually start my sessions at 10 am or 7 pm. I prefer to meet during the morning or late evening to catch the golden hour (right after sunset). This is because the light is softer and more flattering. If I’m coming to your home the time of the day is less important and so these sessions can be scheduled for any time that suits you.

How should I prepare for the session?

I’ll give you lots of advice about how to prepare, including what to wear, how to pose, how to prepare your home, or what you might need to bring with you for an outdoor session.

What happens on the session day?

I will meet you either at home or at a chosen outdoor location. I usually spend the first few minutes on preparation, setting up details, and getting to know you better. I don’t have a very strict time limit on the session so if you have children and they need a bit more time to get used to me or just run off a bit of energy that’s absolutely fine, I can be flexible.

During the session, I will gently direct you with posing. However, this mainly involves making sure you’re all in the best light and you’re nice and close together.

What happens if the weather turns bad or someones is ill?

A few days before an outdoor session I will check the weather forecast and if it’s not looking good I will get in touch to re-schedule. Please note that cloudy days are absolutely fine and can actually add a lovely softness to your images. If someone becomes unexpectedly ill, please get in touch as soon as possible to re-schedule your session.

How many pictures do you take?

On the day of your session, I will photograph you in different outfits and poses. According to the chosen package, you will be able to choose a certain amount of beautifully edited images from the final gallery (usually 50 pictures). There is always a possibility to buy additional images.

When can I see a final gallery?

Usually, after 7 working days, I will send you a link to a gallery so you can choose your favorite images.
