Yes! Almost every other studio and photographer charges you per photo in addition to the shoot, meaning that end up spending hundreds of pounds more than you thought. All of my prices include all the photos we take, so there's nothing extra to pay on the day.
I do have a separate Makeover section, but if it's important that the photos feel like 'you', then it's much better to keep it natural and do your own make-up. (By all means, arrange to visit a hair salon beforehand if need be.)
I've been doing photoshoots since 2002 and people always assume they'll benefit from a make-up artist, but photographic make-up feels much heavier than you're used to, and even a very minimal look will feel really 'caked on' and you'll feel it made you look older. Doing your own make-up is not only much cheaper, but you will look and feel much more like yourself, and more comfortable and natural as a result.
I recommend the Standard or Deluxe package because they include some professional retouching, and retouching is what fixes skin blemishes and the things that people typically hope make-up will improve, but in a much more subtle and natural looking way.
When you arrive, we'll have a quick chat about what photo styles and ideas would best suit you and your needs. We'll do some warm-up shots to get you comfortable in front of the camera, and then proceed with the shoot.
The number of outfits is just an average, not a hard limit. With each outfit/idea there'll be a different lighting setup, and you'll get a chance to review the pics we've just taken to make sure you're happy before moving on to the next look.
I don't provide outfits, so you'll need to bring anything you want to wear but I'll make lots of suggestions when you book in case that's useful.
Most people I work with have never had a shoot before and arrive a bit nervous. That's normal! I'll give you tons of direction all the way through and make it very easy and fun.
Part of the magic of good photography is taking many variations of any one pose so that you have options when choosing ones to use.
Unless you’re a very experienced model, it takes time and lots of photos and direction from me to arrive at really good ones. The photos always get better and better as the shoot goes on, as you relax and look more and more confident. So the packages are designed with this in mind, and it takes that long and many shots in order to arrive at the really great ones you’d choose to use.
Most studios only let you have a few of the photos, but I find that people really like having the outtakes too, as there are often lots they like and want to use. So you won't miss out on any - you'll get all the images we take, all included in the price with nothing extra to pay on the day.
