Frequently Asked Questions
Please drop me a line if you don't see your question here. . .
Do you photograph in colour, and black and white?
I love black and white images, having trained with real film. All your images will be shot in digital RAW and then edited afterward in Adobe software, which allows for them to be converted into black and white where required. I always supply some of your gallery images in black and white as well as colour, picking out the ones I feel work best in black and white.
When will our photographs be ready to view and how do we order our downloads and prints?
After the photoshoot, I will eagerly rush back to my computer suit to begin the editing process. Depending on how busy I am that particular week, I normally say to allow two weeks for processing and presenting your gallery. I shoot hundreds of images on the day and then select the best 40/50 for editing, retouching and colour balancing.
Once they are ready I send you a link to the slideshow and gallery. The slideshow and gallery will be watermarked. You can then go through and select which images and package you would like. The gallery store will then guide you through selecting which photos you want to download, print and frame.
The gallery store securely takes your payment details using Stripe and they are delivered directly to you.
What happens if rain is predicted for an outdoor family photoshoot?
I will be checking the weather forecast in the few days before your outdoor session. If it looks like there will be a little scotch mist, then we can still go ahead but if it looks like heavy rain then we will reschedule the photoshoot for another time to suit.
What should we wear to the photoshoot?
We can discuss this in more detail when you book your particular photoshoot but generally, wear what feels comfortable or you will not feel relaxed. Stick to things you would normally wear and don't go overly matchy, with the whole family all wearing the same colour. I think the best option is to all wear different, natural earthy tones, like blue, rust, orange, green, white, grey and pink. Red can be a little too dominant unless there's just an accent of it like a scarf. Men should wear two layers like a shirt or t-shirt and a jacket or sweater. For women, I advise a loose and floaty skirt or dress rather than a tight one so not to restrict your movement and opt for low heels or flats. Kids can bring a second outfit to change into - which is always useful in case of minor mishaps.
