What to expect – On the day and after

On the Day:

All the sessions begin in a very relaxed manner, for children’s sessions as a parent you can take a back seat and leave the direction of the session to me.

For family sessions, I will be led by you, we will go on a walk you enjoy as a family and do activities you all love.

The session is taken at a leisurely pace to ensure that your children are happy, comfortable and having fun. We will stop for snack breaks and rest breaks whenever necessary.  Shooting time depends on the day,  for children’s shoots often 1 hour is more than enough, for family sessions we might be out from anything between 1 to 3 hours as the children don’t want the morning to end.

On the whole sessions start at 8am, when the first of the morning light peaks its rays thought the clouds. This is also when most children’s energy levels are at their best. Starting nice and early also means you can then have the rest of the day to get on with normal family life.

The Transformation Process:

After the session the images are uploaded, selected, edited and prepared for our ordering session which will take place between 7 – 14 days after our session.  We will have arranged a date  for you to view the images.

Every photograph from the selection is cleaned up, a colour palette is chosen and I work hard to make sure each image reaches my high editing standards. This process takes the most amount of time…many, many hours in most cases.

The final selection will be approximately 20 – 30 of the best images.


Choosing Your Favourite Images:

This is arguably the best part of the process. Getting to see the final selection of photos in all their glory.

Often customers are concerned that they won’t be able to make their final choices in one evening.  However, my experience in knowing how best to make the selection process can really make a difference. Prior to my visit I will suggest that you have a look around your house and think about where you might want to hang images and consider other family or friends who would like to receive photographs.

Together we can make decisions based on what you want to do with the images and how best to accomplish that.

All purchases can be paid for by cash, credit or debit card on the day.

My Product List:

I have sourced a selection of products produced by high-quality framers and professional printers that are far superior to 99.98% of the products sold to the consumer market.

This means that your prints and products are calibrated to match the colours and tones that were intended.  Also that the quality of products will last the test of time.

I will bring you a selection of product options so you can choose what works best for you.


The items are delivered to me so that I can check they meet the necessary standards before I deliver them to you. This is approximatly 14 days – 21 days after the order has been taken.

All you have to do is put a nail in the wall!
