Q: I’m not sure I want artwork – can’t I just have the digitals and do all the work myself?
A: Each piece of artwork comes with the high corresponding digital file…. but not only that…. you might want to consider your experience with me as a combination of photography and interior design.
I help you sort through the images from your shoot, design wall galleries, and put together beautiful print boxes and albums. Put the overwhelm and stress onto MY shoulders – families with little ones are busy enough already!
Using my skills ensures that a USB of images doesn’t sit in a drawer, wasted, for years on end, or even worse – corrupt and lost forever. Ensure your kids – and your grandkids – hold tangible works of art, and reminisce over them at future family gatherings.
Q: I’m scared the children won’t behave for the photo shoot!
A: My outdoor portrait sessions are really as simple as going for a walk with a friend. I recommend you tell this to the kids. They’ll be so busy playing they won’t even notice I am taking pictures. I may guide you to get an image that I want, but I won’t be telling you to stand awkwardly and smile at the camera. And I definitely don’t expect children to conform or sit still. The best photographs come from natural moments. I ‘watch’ for perfect photographs rather than ‘create’ them.
Q: I’m scared I’ll look awful in the pictures.
A: I had a photoshoot not long ago. I’d been putting it off for a long time, wanting to lose weight first. Then I realised, I wasn’t having the photos taken for Instagram or Facebook. They were for Evan and Amelie, nobody else. All my vanity disappeared. I had the photos taken and I’m so glad I did. They’re so precious. The ‘perfect time’ I was waiting for would never come.
Q: How is your pricing structured?
A: I have a session fee of £60, which includes your portrait session, viewing and ordering session at your home.
Artwork is sold separately.
A rough guide to artwork pricing can be found here –https://catherinebookerphotography.com/investment-2/
Pricing and budget is discussed in detail during your consultation, where you will be able to see and hold the artwork in person, and I’ll leave you with an investment guide so you can plan ahead.
I am a full service, boutique photographer – from consultation to hand delivering your artwork, you have my full attention and care.
I take credit cards, and offer payment plans.
I promise photographs that you fall in love with, or I re-shoot your session, or refund the session fee.
Q: What shall we wear for the shoot?
A: As a full service photographer, this includes advice on what to wear, what to expect, and what to bring on the day. I’ll encourage you to send me photos of the clothing if you’re worried about your choices.
Q: I don’t want wall art!
A: Perhaps you’d prefer an album, or loose prints! There’s something for every taste. And if I don’t have what you’re looking for – TELL ME! I’ll get my detective hat on and find what you’re looking for!
