Where are you based and do you travel for portrait shoots?
I am based near Tunbridge Wells and cover the surrounding areas. In certain cases I am happy to travel outside these areas to the broader Kent, Sussex and Surrey areas if there is a specific location you love and would like the shoot to be help at so please do ask if you have something in mind!
Where do your photoshoots take place?
It all depends on the type of shoot we are doing. If it’s an outdoor shoot then I like to work around the local
landscape and areas within and around Tunbridge Wells and Crowborough. I can come to your home or I also work out of a studio in Tunbridge Wells if this is more what you are looking for.
How long will our portrait session last?
Portrait sesions last on average between one and one and a half hours and I ask that you plan ahead and arrive as promptly as you can so we can make the most of our time together creating some wonderful images of you and your family.
What happens if the weather is bad and we planned an outdoor shoot?
Photography is all about working with good light. If the light is poor then it may affect how we work on the day. I have photographed in all types of light and weather from portraits in the rain to low light and sunset so rest assured I will be able to advise on whether we are going to get the best from your shoot that day by changing things around or whether it’s worth rescheduling completely.
What happens if my child is ill?
Being a mother to three young children myself, I know only too well how hard it is looking after sick children and the last thing they are going to want to do if they are feeling unwell is have their photograph taken! If your child has come down with a bad cold or has a temperature then we are much better to reschedule the session until such time you have a bright little button back on your hands. Otherwise it is likely to be an unenjoyable experience for you and your child when it’s meant to be quite the opposite!
How much retouching do you do to the edited images?
After the shoot has taken place I do a basic edit on your images which include any colour correction, cropping and contrast adjustments. Once you have selected the images you want for framing or an album I can work further on the images if necessary to ensure they look perfect for display.
