"WE WILL DEFINITELY BE RETURNING FOR ANOTHER SHOOT"

Alex did an incredible job.  She made everyone feel very at ease during a really fun shoot and produced beautiful images that we are delighted with.  This is the second time we’ve asked Alex to do our family photography and we will definitely be returning for another in the future.  We would highly recommend her services.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHERE DO YOU WORK?

I’m based in Ardingly, near Haywards Heath, West Sussex and most of my shoots take place within a 10-15 mile radius.  I’m happy to travel further afield; such shoots may require an additional charge to cover travel time and expenses.

WHERE WILL MY SHOOT TAKE PLACE?
I can come to your home or we can find a mutually convenient location such as a local park, woodland etc.  I’m happy to photograph virtually anywhere as long as I have permission to do so.  I have a limited number of family shoot passes for Borde Hill Gardens, Nr Haywards Heath if you’d like your shoot there.

WHAT IF IT RAINS?
If it is pouring with rain let’s re-schedule.  I am happy to shoot in all other weathers though – cloudy daylight is actually more flattering than bright sunshine!  I’m also usually pretty time-flexible on the day so happy to alter the time according to the forecast.    

HOW LONG DO I NEED TO ALLOW FOR THE SESSION?
Sessions tend to last between one and two hours. I am generally led by your children; I’m happy to keep photographing as long as they are enjoying themselves.

WHAT IF SOMEONE IS ILL?
I’m happy to postpone your session if someone is ill – sick children do not make happy photos. Please let me know as soon as possible if you think you might have to reschedule.

CAN WE INCLUDE OUR PETS?

I’m more than happy to include your pets – they are an important part of the family too!

DO YOU PROVIDE BLACK & WHITE PHOTOGRAPHS TOO?
Most of my images are colour but I do provide a selection of black and white images too, depending on what works best for each particular image.  If you’d like to see a particular image in black and white once you have seen your pictures just ask!

HOW MUCH DO CLIENTS USUALLY SPEND?

Families usually invest between £495 and £2,000 on their prints, frames or albums after their session.

CAN WE BUY DIGITAL FILES?
Yes of course!  Digital files are available to purchase after your shoot. You will be given permission to print from them and to share for personal use.

DO YOU HAVE A NEWSLETTER?
  Yes and I promise I won’t spam you!  I’ll keep you posted with my latest offers etc. There’s a sign up button on my home page, head on over and just pop in your email!

HOW DO I BOOK?
