We offer a studio experience in your own home, we have a mobile set up which will fit in most living rooms or even some kitchens! We spend roughly 60-90 minutes with your family to get a good variation of photos, however the kids are the boss, if it takes a little longer that’s fine! You can request the shoot to follow a certain theme if needed- we have different colour backdrops etc, just let us know when you get in touch to book so we can talk you through the session.
Once we have the images we need we aim to have the finished disc to you within 2-3 weeks for you to print & share, we try to have a ‘taster’ ready within a week which can be seen on our facebook page if this is your preference, we process the images in a mixture of colour and black & white. There will also be a usage license for you on the disc to make sure you have no issue printing all of the images, this is all part of the price, no hidden extras so you can print what you want where and when you want!
For a regular portrait we have the option of a home studio set up, we usually expect these sessions to last around 1 hour to get the best variety, a home studio set up would require 2.5 metre x 2.5 meters of space to get the best from a session, ideally on a hard floor but we can work with carpets too! An indoor session does have a limit to how many we can fit on a backdrop, we would limit this to parents and their kids, so, unfortunately, we cannot accommodate an extended family shoot indoors, if this is something you need, consider an outdoor session.
Having our great outdoors as a backdrop can bring brilliant variety to portraits, there’s no limit to how many we can fit into a picture for an outdoor shoot too. We are spoilt for choice in the area, we have Plessey woods, Jesmond Dene, Saltwell Park as well as our beautiful coastline at Tynemouth/Whitley Bay, plus many more scenic areas. Being outdoors is great for kids to blow off steam, ideal for children you know won’t be comfortable in a studio environment.
