This kind of shoot is suitable for portraits, family sessions, new borns, babies etc . . .
All studio portrait shoots work on a simple hourly rate, but before I give you that, please understand that with me the rate includes ALL the files, fully edited and in high resolution for you to do with as you please. I don’t play the games that many others do of offering a minimal fee to get you in the door then charging you through the nose for prints and files. I can of course supply pretty much any print product you may require but you are in no way obliged to purchase from me. Although I would stress that all my prints are finely edited and hand finished to ensure the best quality possible. You won’t get that at Boots!
OK, that said, my fee is a straight £140.00 for a single hour, £250.00 for two hours and £350.00 for three hours. Longer sessions to be negotiated separately.
If you require a baby or newborn shoot, I always recommend a two hour session and with little ones (up to around 4) as it really can be an exercise in patience. I perfectly understand that this of course depends on your budget but it is well worth it. The less pressure the more pic’s simples!
With little ones, you really have to let them do what they are going to do and capture the shots as they do it . . . . try to force them to do something and you’ll then waste 20 mins calming them down again . . . .
With little ones, it’s also important to realise that they won’t necessarily look at the camera and the more you try to tell them to the less they will! Let nature take it’s course, let them play and let me shoot . . . .
