Frequently asked questions
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK?
We have very limited availability, so please pop us a message as soon as you can. Once your baby is here, it may be too late. We take bookings from your 12 week scan, so please contact us when you are still pregnant and let us know your due date so we can check availability. For all other photoshoots its best to contact me ASAP for availability.
HOW LONG DOES A SESSION TAKE?
Your session will be at our home studio on the culmore road in Derry/ L'derry, N'Ireland. We don't rush you and make sure you enjoy every moment of your time here. A family - baby photoshoot (6 months plus) takes about 45 minutes to an hour. A newborn session tends to take a little longer, to allow plenty of time for feeding and settling baby. You can expect your newborn session to last between 2 and 3 hours. You'll find this time goes very quickly. Many parents say it's the first time they've been able to enjoy a hot cup of tea since baby arrived. A communion - confirmation photoshoot takes between 45 minutes and to an hour.
Will you edit out blemishes or anything else I don't want in my finished gallery?
The final images you pick are professionally, lightly retouched and enhanced by hand to remove blemishes or marks that wouldn't normally be there.
We shoot for sharpness! This brings out all the little details of baby like their precious eyelashes and whispy hair... But this will also enhance every newborn spot and flake, so we will then soften and lighten red blotches, skin flakes or spots to bring out the natural complexion of your little baby. We edit each of your images by hand and this process is totally unique to your session!
What if I feel self-consious about breastfeeding?
If you have chosen to breastfeed your baby, it can be a worrying thought feeding "in public" in the beginning. Breastfeeding is totally normalised in our home studio, so please don't worry or feel anxious. You may find baby wishes to feed little & often whilst here, which is very normal for both breast and bottle fed babies during their photo session.
How many images will I view?
After your session, we aim to provide you with around 30-50 images to view at your Preview & Ordering appointment. We find our clients value that one great piece to hang on their wall and treasure for a lifetime, so each image you view will be designed as a centre piece. You will view your selection of coloured and black & white finished pieces at your personal Preview & Ordering appointment with us, scheduled a few days after your shoot.
Do I get all the images on a disk?
We specialise in beautiful custom wall art from framed prints, metals to canvases. So Instead of handing you a cd full of images you "might" use, our process makes sure that the images you purchase are the images you want to use. You get to hand pick every image you love, to include into your package. We treat every photograph as a piece of art rather than just a photo and carefully edit each one. We spend the bulk of our processing time making sure those images look absolutely the best they can.
Can I have my images for facebook and instagram?
YES. We offer all our clients the low resolution files of each of the images they purchase for print, which are perfect to use across all social media platforms.
When do i get my final wall art and prints?
Normally between 2 and 3 weeks after your ordering session.
