Here's how the photo shoot works:
Firstly we work out a time that's best for you, whether that's out of work hours or a Saturday session. You then decide on the outfits you want to bring to the session, the normal shoot will give you time for 2, maybe three outfit changes, as you wish. Remember that these are photographs to remember 2011 by!
The studio is equipped with all the latest lighting gizmos, including a wind machine, so we'll work on the best approach when you get to the studio. Naturally, you can touch up makeup when you get here, but somewhere between normal daytime makeup and evening glitz is good, the rest is done by my lighting and simple skin retouching in post production. I'll be guided by you as to how noticeable you want the retouch to be - it can vary from a slight skin brush up to full on restructuring (there may be an additional fee for heavy retouching projects), I can talk you through that after the shoot.
At the viewing, I'll present the first edit of images and then talk you through the options for reprints, frames and canvases. Remember that I'm not a hard sell merchant - I'm quite happy for you to just use the CDROM to email your pictures around the world, or just facebook them, but I'm equally confident that you'll love the images and want to display them in your home or send to friends and relatives as proper colour correct photographic prints.
