I offer a complete photography and design service, tailored to meet each clients needs, style, and budget.
We create the most exquisite, tangible artwork from each portrait session.
I fully manage each project – from design consultation, to hand delivery of the artwork, with meticulous attention to detail. I work with trusted, high end framers, printers, hand crafters of wall art, print boxes and albums, who are skilled in producing the most beautiful work imaginable.
The process is split into the following stages….
This takes place at your home, where we talk about your ideas for your portrait session. We discuss locations, clothing, and what time of day would be best for you and your family, amongst other things.
I create fully finished works of art from each portrait session, and we will discuss your ideas for the end results – (it’s perfectly OK not to have any ideas as I am overflowing with them!) Ideas may include a wall gallery of several images, or large, framed centre piece. You may have no desire for wall art, and may prefer a box of fine art prints, or an album. I bring samples these with me for you to hold and see in person, and pricing is discussed in detail.
THE PORTRAIT SESSION
This lasts around 1 – 2 hours, and takes place at a location of your choice – (at home, in the woods, at the beach…). There is no forced posing, and it is literally as simple as going for a walk with a friend. In my opinion, the best photographs come from letting people interact naturally – I capture souls, not smiles.
The photographs then go through their first round of culling and editing, and I’ll design some wall gallery ideas from the photographs we have of your walls at home.
THE VIEWING AND ORDERING SESSION
This is the best bit, where my clients see the results and we get creative! We will watch a slideshow on a projector, and then easily get your images down to your favourites. I’m able to show you how your images look, to scale, on your walls at home and we can design galleries, so you can see exactly how your artwork will look before you commit. There is no ‘selling’ from me, I am simply your creative collaborator. We will work together to create stunning, heirloom artwork that will be enjoyed for years to come.
BACK AT THE RANCH
I then lovingly retouch and colour correct each individual image that has been chosen to go to print, and order each piece of artwork from my trusted suppliers.
Once the artwork has arrived, I gift wrap each piece and hand deliver it to your home.
• I’m confident of providing images you adore, if you don’t fall in love with your images, I simply re-shoot the session, or refund the session fee •
