I specialise in Creative, Lifestyle portraiture that captures your character, spirit and individuality.
My portrait sessions are £125 and last about two hours.
Family Portraits and individuals who commission me for their photographs aren’t interested in sitting around in clinical studios with the same old white background as everyone else, they want their photographs to be honest, distinctive and artistic with bags of personality. Each portrait session is entirely custom-made and will reflect your character, interests and environment.
Lifestyle Portrait Sessions are designed to be simple and fun they are built on having good communication and detailed planning. We can decide on a location that is meaningful to you and then discuss suitable clothing options that will work with you and to complement your location. We can wander around and do some posed and informal candid style photography to capture special moments and family connections. You will end up with a lovely mix of images to cherish and remind you of that incredible day as a family.
Lifestyle sessions are photographed outside in natural light in a variety of interesting locations. Whether near a river, amongst bluebells in the woods, at the beach or on the farm, the possibilities are endless. I find families and children especially are more comfortable outside of the studio and enjoy playing hide or seek or splashing in the puddles. The aim is for you to have fun enjoy the session in the great outdoors and for the photographs to reflect your unique personalities. I even encourage wagging tails as they are also a big part to family life. Arbroath and the surrounding area has spectacular locations for your family portrait session, such as Lunan Bay and Crombie Park near Dundee.
Your Portrait Session
Your lifestyle session usually takes between 1- 2 hours and we can move around different locations to get a variety of different backdrops and vistas. If there is more than one child ill spend time with each then as a group and then with parents so that I get a good range of photos for you. Once you have confirmed a session date and have booked a date I will also send you my clothing guide on what to wear and other useful tips before your session.
After your Portrait Session
Approximately two weeks after your session, your images will be ready to view. I will invite you to a viewing and ordering appointment where I present a slideshow of your carefully edited photographs. We can go through each of your favourites and discuss presentation options and how you would like to display your photos. It’s important to think about your goals before your session so we have a better understanding of how to display your photos in your home.
