Your Portrait Shoot Explained

This is no ordinary portrait shoot. A portrait shoot with Andy Whittaker Photography is £195, this can be a family portrait shoot, kids shoot, couples shoot, generation shoot, personal portrait shoot or even a pets shoot. If you are looking for a professional portrait shoot with amazing bespoke images then it will take more than just one hour. All my photoshoots are Three hour sessions.

 Here is whats included:

-Prior to any shoot you will have an in person consultation either in the studio or at your home (depending on distance).

-One Hour Hair and Makeup for 1 (usually mum in family shoots)

-All other members of the family or group get hair styling (including the guys)

-Two Hour studio time which includes: Four Different looks with different lighting, backgrounds and outfits. One light look (all white), one dark look (all black) and then a smart look and a casual look. All outfits include a variety of poses.

Here is how it works:

Before you decide to book a portrait shoot you will be invited to have a consultation with me in the studio so that we can discuss exactly what kind of images you would like and my style of images. We can discuss how each different look is going to work and then outfit choices, colours etc… and even finished products. If you decide after our consultation that you would like to book your shoot then the £195 session fee is paid and we get you booked into the diary.

Once you arrive for your shoot we will sit down and have a coffee and go through the shot order and final outfit choices. Everyone except mum or nominated person that is having the hair and makeup will get their hair styled first so that we can start the shoot while mum is having her hair and makeup done by my professional makeup artist who will create a look that compliments your personality and individual style.

Once mum is ready we will get to work creating your family images.

Each family look will consist of a variety of family shots, kids only shots, shots of kids with mum and then kids with dad and shots of mum and dad. This will give you are wide variety of images for your family portfolio.

At the end of the shoot we will go through the diary and find a suitable day for you to all come back and view the final images once I have gone through them and selected the best images and retouched them all. As you are all looking so smart and mum has had her hair and makeup done why not all go out for a meal to celebrate how well you did at the shoot.

I look forward to seeing you in the studio.
