Steps for booking are the following:
2. price info
3. I will send you a questionnaire and a booking link where you will also prompted to pay the 50% retainer fee necessary for your booking
What to expect after booking?
First thing first upon booking you will receive a “welcome portraiture guide” that will contain some useful information about how to best prepare for your photo session, what to wear and so on.An essential part of my process is to set up a pre session consultation over the phone. We will brainstorm ideas, get over all the necessary details, will discuss expectations and I will make sure to gather all the information I need in order to craft a session that is truly unique and tailor made for you.
How long does a session last?
An average family/maternity session lasts around one hour, a newborn session can go up to two hours.
How and when will I receive my photos?
Three to four weeks after your session, the photos will be uploaded to a private online gallery and showcased in a slideshow. After payment will be completed the gallery will be available for you to download, share and back up. This is the necessary time I need to send film rolls overseas to be developed and scanned at a specialized lab and for final editing touches to be done.
How is film photography different from digital?
Essentially the difference between film and digital is in the way image are captured.In film photography images are captured on a roll of film (medium format or 35mm) in digital photography images are captured on a sensor using a digital camera. As mentioned above, after your session, the rolls of film are sent to a lab overseas where they are developed and scanned according to the highest standards and delivered into beautiful high resolution digital files.
Will I like my film images?
I love film because it often surprises me, it leaves room to the unexpected and because it has an intrinsic “artistic” quality to it. Film is for you if you don’t mind a bit of grain, a bit of imperfection and if like me are not too fond of super polished, super sharp images. There are different ways of shooting film but the way I do it,with natural light and almost no retouching at the end unless absolutely necessary, gives the images a bit of an “old fashion”slightly vintage aura which I love.If you’re after a glossy, contemporary look my way of shooting film might not be for you.
Hey,all this candid photos philosophy is cool but I am afraid I won’t look good in photos.
Not everyone is a model, not everyone likes having their picture taken, I am perfectly aware of that. I suggest you to take some time to think about why you want to hire a professional photographer.Having your images taken by a professional is not only about looking good in photos, but is also about capturing who you are and how you’re seen by someone else’s eye. I believe the main thing that is going to forge our relationship is trust. When a client books a session with me it is because they trust my eye and they want to see themselves through it. The point of you and I talking before your session is so that I get a feel of who you are and can mould your session to reflect at least partially your personality. And that applies to your children as well. My expectations of your shoot and your expectations of the shoot need to be on the same page, but please leave some room for the unexpected.There will be thoughtful images and more exciting shots, images that are tender and others that are funny.You won’t look perfect in all of them, your shirt will be a bit out of place and so will your hair, but do you really care? The point of these photos is to take that perfect image of yourself you have in mind, rip it apart and make space for something new and possibly more human, more exciting, more meaningful. My goal is to show you images of yourself that you will love and most importantly will make you feel something.
