Photography sessions are 1 hour, so where possible, arrive with your hair and make up done, and possibly already in your first outfit
The 1 hour starts at the agreed time, not when you arrive, so make sure you arrive on time to make the most of your booking.
No, deposits are not refundable unless the photographer is no longer able to take your pictures.
The deposit is there to protect the photographer from cancellations, so please only book when you’re sure you want the photoshoot to go ahead.
In case of illness, we will try and offer you a different date and time, pending availability.
We require at least 24 hours notice to change a booking’s date and time.
Our husband and wife team has worked in the film and TV industry since 2009. They’ve worked for very well known TV channels like channel 4, BBC, and sky and on many famous TV dramas (Eastenders, Coronation street, holby, to name a few). They’ve also worked for large corporate clients like Santander, Schroders, Deutche bank… Sophie knows how to use studios so well that she still lectures in the TV studio at Staffordshire University. Needless to say, with this much experience, you are in safe hands. By picking us, you would also be supporting a small, family run business
Yes! Lots! We run the local Kids Film and Musical theatre after school club in cadishead. Sophie for kids parties every weekend, and teaches singing to children in one on one classes too!
Yes. You can bring as many outfits as you like, just keep in mind that the more outfit changes, the less time there is to shoot.
You will be with a female photographer / videographer who has years of experience getting people to relax in front of the camera. It’s quite normal to feel nervous and she will take the time to ease you into the environment and reassure you. You can bring someone with you if you wish and either have them in the studio of sitting next door on a comfortable sofa
We are fortunate enough to have a fully equipped professional studio in our house, which means we don’t have commercial property over heads to keep up with. We have also built in most of kit to keep the crewing costs down.
As our studio is at home, it means our working hours are a lot more flexible, so we can pretty much do most days and times
After the shoot, you can take a little break in one of our rooms while we back up the images and do an initial pre selection. We then let you look through the images in a software where you can rate your favourites with stars so you can narrow down which ones you would like to keep. Once you’ve chosen, we will edit those images and send them to you after receiving the payment for them.
It’s a great idea to get hair and make up done by professionals for your pictures. We are lucky enough to be at a 4 minute walk from 4 hair and beauty salons. So you can get your pamper session in a fully fledged salon and then have a short stroll over to us for your time in the studio. You can get your hair, make up, nails and eye brows done and feel gorgeous. If you’re quite happy to do your own hair make up, you can do that too. We advise that you get ready at home to not use up your studio time.
We live in a modern age where a lot of pictures are shared digitally and we understand that getting the digital copy is what people prioritise. There are plenty of companies that offer a wide range of printing options and we prefer to let you select the price and product best for you. By not printing ourselves, it also allows us to be more affordable for our clients.
A lot of studio’s strategy is to entice you with a low booking fee and then they apply hard sell techniques after the shoot and charge a lot more than the booking fee for the images.
We believe in complete transparency, for a fair experience. You will know in advance all your options and price list, so that you can come in with a specific budget in mind. You will find our price breakdown and what it includes on our website.
