What to expect...
Thank you for considering Caroline Ann Photography. If you choose me as a photographer, you are choosing not only to have your pictures taken, but to partake in an experience. So let me tell you a little about what you could expect.
Upon scheduling your date (I get booked up quickly in the autumn, so plan ahead), we will also decide the location you want to take your pictures. If you do not have a spot in mind, I have several places I love to shoot. We will pick the best spot that showcases your family the best. Most clients pick places personal to them: their home, a place they frequent as a family such as woodlands, parks or National Trust locations. If you've an adventurous idea I'd love to hear it! Some clients prefer a studio shoot for their child, which is perfectly fine and I can supply that in their home for their convenience. All this can be discussed and decided during our no-obligation consultation.
BEFORE THE SHOOT:
Once we schedule a date for your photoshoot, and you've made your small deposit, you will have access to my “What to wear” and client guide. I know how daunting it can be to coordinate clothing for everyone, but I will help make sure you feel fully prepared. Many of my clients take pictures of different outfits and have me help them decide – which I'm always willing to do.
DURING THE SHOOT:
The one thing that I hear over and over again is that my photoshoots are fun - so much so we often lose track of time. I am so thrilled to hear this because I want you to look back at these pictures with fond memories of a relaxed experience. I try to ease everyone out of being uncomfortable and feeling awkward, and instead, to enjoy the moment with each other. If any posing is called for, I'll offer full direction for the best photograph.
AFTER THE SHOOT:
We will set a date for your Reveal night, which will be about three weeks after your session. In the meantime, I may send you a few sneak peaks of edited images to get you excited.
REVEAL ORDERING SESSION:
This is a client favorite. I will come to your home, with a favourite treat and show you your slideshow of the pictures. On this night you will be offered special Reveal pricing for placing your order that night. I will not only walk you through the ordering process and help you shortlist images (if you decide not to purchase them all), I have been known to help clients on these nights figure out picture placement in their home. I'll have sample products for you to touch and see so you can visualise the right size and style to suit your space and shots. If you're not interested in wall art, ask about my stunning collection of albums and image boxes, or the purchase of digital files only.
