What exactly does the process involve?
The process is designed to take as much stress out of things for you as possible.
Here we can take a closer look at what each stage involves and how I can help you get that amazing art you’ve always wanted in your home.
Let’s meet for a coffee. We’ll get to know each other a little better and work out exactly what I can do for you. There is no pressure whatsoever, not every photographer is right for every client, but I want to make sure that we’re a match before we embark on our journey. If you’re shopping around and making decisions on price alone, I might not be the photographer for you. I pride myself on offering the highest quality service and products I can.
In the consultation we will discuss what the whole process entails, talk about any ideas you might want to explore, and what products are available.
An important thing to cover is wardrobe… what to bring with you to the shoot, what the other members of the family will wear (if applicable) so you can have images that are harmonious and look spectacular.
I know you are busy, and the last thing you need is to be worrying about a photo shoot! I aim to take the stress out of it for you so you can enjoy it.
Fully guided photo shoot
Come and feel a million dollars. A photoshoot that includes complimentary hair and makeup from a fully qualified and insured professional.
This is where the magic happens, where we bring together everything we discussed in the consultation… I’m here to make you feel completely at ease and make it an enjoyable experience. I will guide you through how to pose naturally, to show you off so you look as amazing as you are.
There is no rush, you are my number one priority and the sessions usually take around 2 ½ to 3 hours.
I only take on 2 shoots a week, this ensures that all my focus is on you and I’m not worrying about getting people ‘in and out’ like some studios. With this time, I can prepare everything and take the time to produce some amazing images that you’ll fall in love with. There is no limit on outfit changes so we’ll make sure we capture all the looks you want.
Personal reveal and ordering appointment
Take your seats and get ready to see your edited images in your very own slideshow. There are sometimes tears, there is often laughter and emotions can run high as your images are revealed to you. All the images from the session are put through a strict editing process… any that do not meet my exacting standards; there may be a blink, children are children and sometimes disappear behind mummy, or the lighting may not quite match our original vision. These are removed so only the best remain. These images are then retouched and made into a complete set.
It is important to remember that this is also your ordering appointment and all the financial decision makers should come along. I am there to help guide you through what products may be best suited for your home, which images work well together and which images work particularly well in certain products. I like to make sure that here is no pressure at all, I’m just there as the designer of your artwork and to make sure you get the most out of your art. On average, clients invest around one and half to three thousand pounds on their artwork.
Collecting your art
After your ordering appointment, I will take all the images that you select and prepare them for printing. This process includes Master Art Retouching as standard, ensuring that your artwork will look amazing whatever size products you have chosen. I only use the best printers and framers that produce the finest hand-made products in the industry. When I receive your art everything is checked again to make sure that it is perfect before it is released to you… this will not happen unless I am 100% happy.
I am so confident with my products, all wall art comes with a guarantee, so if there are any issues, I will replace it for you.
