What to Expect
Children & Family Photography Session
The majority of my family photography takes place on location, most people have a special place where they enjoy going with their families. However, don’t worry if you can’t think of anywhere, as there are several locations I use all the time, so I’m happy to suggest a few places to find the ideal spot for you.
Once a location has been decided, we can work out the best time to take the photographs – If you have preschool children, I find morning appointments are usually more suitable, before they have a chance to get too tired and grumpy! However, you know your own children and this doesn’t suit everyone.
Another question I’m always asked is what shall we wear? I will have a chat with you about this and email some information which may be helpful, or you can always check out my Pinterest Board - https://uk.pinterest.com/carolinebluntph/
My photography sessions are very casual, and usually last around 1.5 – 2hrs, depending on how relaxed everyone is! However, I do advise you keep at least 2hrs free, as I really don’t like to rush - it’s very important to me to try to capture natural moments, when parents and children interact and forget I’m even photographing them – lots of Dad’s who were apprehensive to start with know this works!
After the session I will go through the photographs and choose/edit the best ones (usually between 40-60 images), and these will be added to a Private Gallery for you to view, approximately one to two weeks after the session.
It really is that simple, I love what I do and want you to enjoy the whole experience.
New Born Session
My new born sessions take place in your own home, as I do not have a studio. I will bring along everything I need, including props, backgrounds etc., which I will discuss with you when booking. Ideally the session should be done from around 7-14 days old, before they start wriggling around too much!
If possible it is always advisable to try and reserve a date for a new born session, so I am able to keep time available for you when your little one arrives. As long as I have your due date, I will be able to reserve a session for you around that time, as we all know babies do not arrive when they are supposed to!
I always allow up to 3 hours for these sessions, which gives plenty of time for feeding, changing nappies etc. and quite often I get a chance to make you a cup of tea, so you get to relax for a while!
When booking, I will email further information to help you prepare for my visit.
