Q. How long does a photography session last?

Most photography sessions last around an hour, maternity 1-1.5 hours and newborn sessions lasting usually around 3-4 hours.  Although sessions are never rushed. 


Q. Where will the sessions take place?

Sessions take place at the studio based in Machen, Caerphilly.  

Q.  Will you edit out blemishes?

Yes I spend many many hours in post production enhancing and smoothing skin.  Due to the quality of the cameras used and the fact that I shoot for sharpness any blemishies are very visable so these are all softly airbrushed in post production.  Although any birth marks or other unique features will not be removed unless requested.  Babies tend to have spots, redness and flaky skin so newborn sessions take considerably longer to edit.

Q.  What should I wear?

Upon booking your photography session I will discuss this with you and send out some more information on how to prepare, what to wear for your session etc. I have a selection of outifts for a newborn session along with many different colour wraps you can choose from at the session.  I also have a few outfits for older baby sessions.  

Q.  What if my baby won't settle?

I have learnt some soothing techniques over the years and am very good at settling the baby throughout the session.  However, if the baby doesn't settle or perhaps is a little unwell then will suggest we re-arrange the session usually for a few days later.

Q.  When do I need to book?

You can book a newborn session anytime after your 12 week scan.  I will pencil your due date in my diary and you can let me know as soon as you have had the baby.  I will then give you a definite date for the session.  However, if you don't book in advance I usually have some space so please just give me a ring to see what I have.  For other photography sessions please bare in mind if you are thinking of the session for a gift.  Then It usually takes 1-2 weeks to come back to view images after the actual session.  This is when you can decide on what products suit you best, most products will take around 3 weeks to complete.  

Q.  How much will it cost?

This entirely depends on what images you llke and what products you decide you like best.  All of which are on display in the studio.  A full price guide can be found on the price page of the website.  If you would like me to send you a price brochure via email then please do let me know.
