Frequently Asked Portrait Sitting Questions


How many photographs do you take?

It varies for every portrait sitting. I always ensure I have plenty of fantastic images to give you a variety of photographs telling your story.


I love your contemporary work but I would also like a formal photograph too...

No problem, I am happy to take formal portraits too.


I am not keen on having my photograph taken...  

There is no need to worry. I am experienced professional photographer who has taken portraits of hundreds of people over the years. Nerves are eliminated by my relaxed and fun style. There is also the advantage of being in the comfort of your own home.


Can I have only my children photographed?

The portrait sitting can be for children only; however a parent or guardian must be present at all times if there are participants under the age of 18.


Can I have only my pet photographed?

Yes no problem, however a family member will need to be present at all times. You may need to feature in a few photographs at the beginning of the sitting to put them at ease.


How long should I allow for the portrait sitting or party?

Please allow two hours which includes time for any outfit changes, the setting up and dismantling of the mobile studio.


How much space do you need for the studio background? 

The studio measures approximately 8 x 8 feet on the floor by 8 feet high. If you prefer your home can be the backdrop. A lifestyle shoot (your home as a backdrop) is required for groups of 4 people or more and sometimes recommended for pet only portrait sittings.


Are our portraits copyright free? 

Copyright of digital files purchased is shared allowing you to make unlimited prints and copies for your family and friends, for no profitable gain. I respect your privacy and will always ask for your permission for the right to reproduce a small number of your photographs in the public domain for marketing.


What area do you cover?

I cover Berkshire and the surrounding counties. For families who live elsewhere in the country I am happy to do the sitting at another relative's home. If you live further than 30 miles from Reading, Berkshire please contact me for sitting prices.


Are you insured? 

Yes, I have public liability and professional indemnity insurance. My studio lighting kit for home portrait sittings is PAT tested. I am also DBS checked.


Can other family members order photographs and take advantage of the first order discount you give us with our portrait sitting?

No problem, all photographs from the same sitting ordered together can receive the first order discount.


When do I pay?

Payment for the portrait sitting is required when booking and optional albums, frames and keepsakes are paid for when you place an order. Payment is by cheque, internet bank transfer or PayPal.


If you have a question that isn't featured above please do not hesitate to contact me.
