What should my family and I wear to the photography session?

What is your approach to posing and directing subjects? 

When it comes to posing and directing subjects, my approach focuses on effective communication, personalized attention, and collaboration. I strive to clearly communicate with you, providing clear instructions and cues to help you achieve the exact look and feel you desire. While posing plays a significant role, I also place great value on capturing natural and candid moments. Throughout our session, I will encourage you to be yourself and interact authentically with those around you. I understand that every individual is unique, so I tailor my approach to suit your personality, body type, and comfort level. Your input and feedback are highly valued, so don't be afraid to tell me what you want!

Can I request specific shots or provide a shot list? 

Absolutely! You can definitely request specific shots or provide a shot list. As your photographer, I want to ensure that your vision and desires are met. Providing a shot list or specific requests allows me to understand your preferences and capture the moments that are most important to you. Whether it's particular poses, group shots, or specific details, your input is valuable in shaping the outcome of the photography session. Feel free to share any specific shots or ideas you have in mind, and I will do my best to accommodate them and incorporate them into our session. Your satisfaction and capturing the memories you envision are my top priorities. 

What is your photography style or specialty? 

I love staying true to colour and keeping things vibrant in my photography. My style has a wonderful blend of traditional and candid elements. It allows me to capture a wide range of emotions and moments in a unique way. Portraits hold a special place in my heart; they are my true passion. There's something magical about capturing the essence of a person and showcasing their unique personality through photography.

I enjoy the art of directing and posing my subjects, creating images that are beautifully scripted and thoughtfully composed. These images have a classic and timeless quality to them, which I believe will be cherished for years to come.

However, I also adore the candid moments. They have a way of bringing you into the moment, capturing the genuine emotions and authentic interactions between people. Candid shots offer a sense of realness and spontaneity, allowing viewers to feel as if they are part of the moment itself.

While portrait photography is my main focus, I do appreciate the occasional foray into landscape photography. It provides a refreshing change of scenery and allows me to capture the breathtaking beauty of nature. Landscapes offer a different set of challenges and opportunities for artistic expression.

Do you provide retouching or editing services? 

Yes, I do provide retouching and editing services as part of my photography packages. I believe that post-processing plays a vital role in enhancing the final images and ensuring they meet the highest quality standards. During the editing process, I carefully review each image, making adjustments to colour, exposure, and composition to achieve the desired look and feel. I also offer retouching services to enhance skin tones, remove blemishes or distractions, and overall polish the images. My goal is to deliver stunning and professionally finished photographs that exceed your expectations. Rest assured that I approach retouching with a careful and artistic touch, preserving the natural beauty of the subjects while enhancing the overall visual appeal. If you have any specific retouching requests or preferences, please let me know, and I will gladly accommodate them to ensure the final images reflect your vision.

How long does it take to receive the final edited images? 

The timeline for receiving the final edited images can vary based on the project scope and the number of photographs. Typically, a preview or sneak peek of a few edited images is provided shortly after the session, within a few days. The complete set of edited images can take up to a few weeks. This time frame allows for meticulous editing to ensure the highest quality and alignment with your vision. The specific timeline can be discussed during the initial consultation or when booking a session. The goal is to deliver stunning, fully edited images that capture the essence of the moments, and your patience and understanding are valued throughout the process. 

What happens if there is inclement weather on the day of the shoot? 

If there is inclement weather on the day of the shoot, we have a few options available. We can discuss the possibility of rescheduling the session to a more suitable date with better weather conditions. Alternatively, depending on the type of shoot and your preferences, we can embrace the weather creatively and incorporate it into the images. Safety is a priority, and if the conditions are severe or unsafe, we will explore alternative indoor locations or adjust the shoot concept accordingly. Throughout the process, open communication is maintained to address any weather-related concerns and find the best solution while ensuring your comfort and safety. 

Do you offer any additional services such as albums or prints or canvas? 

While I do not offer album design or creation services, I am pleased to offer high-quality prints and canvas options. Once the editing process is complete, you will have the opportunity to choose your favourite images for printing. I work with professional print labs that ensure exceptional print quality and colour accuracy. Whether you prefer standard prints, fine art prints, or canvas prints, I can assist you in selecting the best options to showcase your photographs beautifully. Prints and canvas are a wonderful way to preserve and display your cherished memories. If you have any specific preferences or questions regarding prints or canvas, I would be happy to discuss them further and provide guidance based on your individual needs.
