STYLING

 

STYLING

When you have booked an appointment the next questions we receive is “What should I wear” or “Is there anything I need to bring?”

This can vary from session to session but our main piece of advice is to wear something that you feel good in, and to keep it simple. We understand that you want to look your best, as these photographs will hang in your home for years to come but we also want them to remain timeless and not pinpoint you to a year with trends and logos.

Try and keep your clothes free from brand names as much as you can, they may be in style now but in years to come you’ll not think it that cool (cue a photo of me top to toe in Tammy Girl, Groovy Chick lol only joking - no one needs to see that)

You can’t go wrong with fabrics like denim, lace, knits and linen as they always in fashion and almost everybody owns a nice pair of jeans, blouse/shirt or a knit jumper. We don’t want you to feel like you have to go an buy a new outfit for an hour in front of the camera.

Another piece of advice we gave to our customers is to keep the family looking in sync, we don’t mean that everyone has to be wearing the same colours or outfits but if one person in the family is smart-casual then we suggest everyone to-do the same, same if it was more formal attire. If someone is wearing a cream top then another can wear a colour than compliments it like a burgundy or a navy as an example. Have a idea of what everyone is going to wear a head of schedule and if you aren’t sure bring a bag with a few items (even if its just 2-3 tops) and we can help you style it.

For New Born Sessions, we also recommend keeping it simple, keep the little ones looking like babies, with some bare skin and little vests. We have beautiful wraps and pieces in studio for our newborns but if you have anything in particular you would like to get the wee ones into bring it along, we can get them in a few outfits. It’s also lovely when parents bring some sentimental items like passed down soft toys or shoes granny might of knitted, it adds a little something to the story.

 

APPOINTMENTS

BOOKING YOUR SESSION

so you are interested in booking a session with us? There are a number of ways you can do this, firstly you are still unclear on what you want you can book in a free planning consultations appointment here , or if you opt to book without a consultation (some shoots like New Born don’t require this consultation but can be offered if you feel you need more guidance ) to book a full session you can either call directly 07742243231 and get an appointment locked in, book via our fb page or for ease get in touch via our contact us form on the button below


PLANNING SESSION 30MINS

We offer pre-session consultations for anyone who is interested in getting some portraits with us. This consultations is free of charge and normally takes around 30 minutes. You can ask as many questions as you like :) There is no obligation to book at this consultation, this appointment is purely to give you a better idea of what we do, the products we offer and the cost of everything. We can cover your home style and what finishes would best suit that, as well as what you are looking from the photography session and also what clothing is best for you or anyone who steps in front of the camera.

If you are apprehensive about getting your photo taken, a pre-session consultation can be really helpful as it gives you an opportunity to meet Audrey (the photographer) before hand and put you at ease, this is great for any children that might be extra shy or might take strange too (nice to see a face a couple of times before shining some lights on them lol). We have a relaxed environment and we don’t want to put any extra pressure on anyone who doesn’t feel natural getting their photo taken :)


studio session 60mins

We suggest you arrive 10 minutes before your appointment time as this will give you and us time to get set up and introductions to everyone in the party :) Our portrait sessions take one hour we suggest to allow the full hour and not book anything in your day too soon afterwards as we don’t want a stressed or rushed experience for you. We have two background setup , Vintage Chic (the cream/brown tones) and the Classique (grey tone) we can do both in one session but it can take a few minutes to change so if this is something you would like, let us know at the top of the session if possible (sometimes Audrey will suggest this for you anyway)

Our Newborn sessions are 3 hours in length with may seems excessive but with the little ones this is very much needed. This time can give mums and dads a break from their duties while Audrey the baby whisperer can help out. The 3 hours will fly in and you can change and feed them in this time, we like to get them in a deep sleep for all the wee poses - we also suggest 0-8 weeks for our new born as this is there most sleep stages, if we were dreaming we would say 0-3weeks as this is the best stage but we understand that this can be alot to ask of a new mum and kudos to all the mums that do it :)
