Behind The Scenes

I am always very grateful for each and every booking I receive and look on it as a huge privilege to be able to do this for your family and so, once I receive your booking, I get to work planning your shoot.

Firstly I will send you a link to a Post Booking Form; here you can give me details about your family group, number of adults, ages of children, any special relationships, any concerns, in fact anything you think will affect the session.

I may then visit the venue we have agreed, especially if it the first time I have undertaken a shoot in that particular spot, I also will create a rough schedule of positions and poses, take a few snaps using my little point and shoot camera and, most importantly, I will research where the sun will be to give us the best possible light.

I realise this all sounds very formal but once we are at the shoot we usually deviate from the plan as families start to interact and enjoy their shoot.  The plan simply ensures I don't miss out anything important to you and means that I can create a set of beautiful and meaningful images for to keep forever.

The attached images were take by my husband on his phone and show me scouting out a venue for an upcoming shoot. I am very excited as it looks a lovely spot.
