Fine Art Studio Portraits
An aspect of my work that I love is fine art portrait photography. This usually takes place in my studio at home where I have a variety of backdrops, lighting and props. My aim is to capture beautiful, stylish images of your child with a classic feel that you can treasure for many years.
My package for a shoot with one child which includes a pre-shoot consultation in person or by ‘phone; approximately an hour’s shoot with one outfit change; my time and talent professionally editing the images; and a £100 credit towards products bought after the shoot costs £195.
If you would like a shoot with 2 children, to include individual portraits and the two children together, then the price is £250, which includes a £125 credit towards products bought after the shoot.
Please see the Your Prints page for some information about the prices of my products.
Before the shoot
At the pre-shoot consultation, we can discuss what sort of outfits you could bring along to the shoot. Simple, classic styles work well and it is usually a good idea to avoid very busy patterns and logos. Girls look beautiful in dresses, whether a party dress or just a simple favourite. Boys look great in shirts or plain t-shirts. Ultimately, bring things you and your child love and suits their personality.
It is also helpful at this stage let me know whether you have a preference for black and white or colour images.
It is really helpful to discuss in advance whether you have particular spaces in your house where you want to display the finished products and whether you have a preference for framed prints, canvases or metroblocs (see Your Prints for more about products) as I can then tailor make your slideshow to take account of this.
AFTER THE SHOOT
Within two weeks of the shoot, a slideshow of at least 15 (25 for two children) edited images will be emailed to you. This slideshow will include some brilliant ideas on how to show off your images in the best combinations and sizes. You will also receive a printed contact sheet of the images to help you in your selection process. A full list of all my products and prices will also be sent at this stage.
ADVICE AND HELP FOR WALL ART
Your slideshow will include lots of suggestions on how you could display your images but if you are still having trouble deciding what you want, let me show what the various options will look like in your own home using a digital ‘mock-up’. For this, I use a photo of your own house interior as the backdrop with your images shown hung on the wall. Clients find this service very useful.
If you see a wall art display that you like in the slideshow but want to see it using another of the edited images, please just let me know.
I ask that orders be placed within two weeks of receiving the slideshow unless otherwise agreed. I am happy to receive orders in person, by phone, email or post.
When you place an order, an invoice will be emailed to you containing details of how to pay by bank transfer or Paypal.
Orders will not be processed until full payment is received from you and are usually ready for delivery within four weeks.
