WHAT KIND OF PHOTOGRAPHER ARE YOU?
My work as been described as genuine, honest and natural. I allow for real emotions to be captured by using techniques of play and fun interaction resulting in genuine images for you to treasure for a lifetime. As your photographer, I will provide a choice of gallery images that can be displayed in your home as pieces of art or archived in a custom album to be treasured for generations. These photographs will be an investment in your family history. I do not try to make you or your child look perfect, stiff, or unnatural. I will not ask your child to say “cheese’.
WHERE WILL MY SESSION BE HELD?
I offer studio sessions for cake smashes, hot air balloon sessions, child and family portrait sessions and newborn sessions. Lifestyle newborn sessions take place in your home. I also offer outdoor family sessions dependent on weather.
WHEN DO NEWBORN SESSIONS OCCUR?
I prefer to hold studio newborn sessions at 7-14 days. This is when your child will be most settled. Lifestyle in home sessions can be more flexible as there is more time spent cuddling baby.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
See my blog on what to wear. Be comfortable, be yourself.
WILL I GET MY DIGITAL PHOTOS AFTER THE SHOOT?
A gallery will be available to view within two weeks of your session. These will be sent to you as a password protected online gallery. From there you can choose your favourites and purchase digital photographs. You will also have the option to buy additional prints and boutique products. You will have one month to order digital downloads and additional products.
HOW DO YOU CHOOSE WHICH IMAGES IN MY GALLERY FROM OUR SHOOT?
I look carefully at each and every image I capture at your session and hand select the best images. I choose images that both represent my style as an artist but also show the uniqueness of your child and family.
HOW FAR OUT ARE YOU BOOKED?
I typically book one month in advance. If you are interested in newborn portraits, please enquire while you are pregnant. However, I try to leave openings in my schedule for last minute newborn sessions.
DO YOU OFFER MINI-SESSIONS?
I offer shorter sessions however, I have found that some children take more time to warm up and for them these sessions would not be suitable.
HOW MUCH DOES ALL OF THIS COST?
My pricing varies for each session. All prices can be found here.
DO YOU ALLOW SMARTPHONE PHOTOGRAPHS DURING YOUR SHOOT?
My policy is that smartphone photographs are not allowed to be taken during your session. I feel that is distracting for both myself and for you in taking part in interacting with your family.
HOW DO I BOOK A SESSION WITH YOU?
I am so glad you asked! You can purchase your session directly from my shop at www.paulinesavagephotography.co.uk/shop. For all enquiries please email email@example.com
