Portrait Photography - How it Works

Nobody likes getting their photograph taken! I want to create a stress-free and enjoyable experience for you and your family. With that in mind,  here is my step-by-step guide to my Portrait Photography Service...

1. Booking

All bookings for my Portrait shoots are taken online. A deposit of £50 is required at the time of booking to secure the shoot. (Balance due on the day of the photoshoot)

You're busy - you don't need endless telephone/email tag to arrange the shoot! (The website is linked and updated in real-time with my diary and you can book shoots up to 90 days in advance) - BOOK NOW

2. Consultation

Once I receive your booking, I will contact you to discuss the options for your photoshoot. I want to capture what makes you and your family individual! 

We can discuss the different style of photoshoots I can offer, as well as advice on location and clothing

3. Photoshoot

Your portrait session can take place at a venue that is handy for you. Either at your own home or a local beauty spot. I bring the studio to you! (No extra charge for locations within 25 miles of Ballyclare)

It takes me around 15 minutes to set up and then we have up to 60 minutes of shooting time - we can take as many shots / change of outfits as you wish.

The remaining payment for the portrait package is due at this time. Payment can be made by either cash or credit/debit card.

4. Viewing Appointment

At the end of the photoshoot, we will arrange a viewing appointment - usually 7 to 10 days after the shoot.

I will present the images taken during the shoot and you select 5 images for full retouching, enhancement and printing. Additional images/prints can be added to your selection at a cost of £15 each.

There is NO OBLIGATION to order any additional portrait products from me - I can advise you on the best options available to you. I do offer a range of professional quality portrait products, including mounted prints (ready for framing) and Canvas Portraits

5. Retouching

When selecting your images you can let me know of any additional retouching you would like. Nothing too radical! Just enough to make you and your family look the very best.

All retouching is carried out by a professional image retoucher and this is included in the package price

6. Delivery

Your selected retouched prints (along with any additional portrait products ordered) will be delivered directly to you within 14 days of the viewing appointment.

Digital Copies of the selected images (with full printing rights) will then be available to download for 1 year from your private online Viewing Gallery

My Guarantee

If you don’t LOVE your pictures when you first view them during the viewing appointment, I will refund all your money and you walk away paying NOTHING!  When booking a Portrait session with me you have absolutely nothing to lose…
