Selena’s birthday photo shoot

A few weeks ago I had a call from Selena who wanted a photoshoot to celebrate a recent birthday so we chatted about options and decided that a portrait shoot would work out nicely.  We often offer a mini shoot when its just 1 person but it was quickly apparent that Selena wanted more than that offers.

Selena arrived looking like she was going on a cruise. More suitcases than we have ever seen haha so the full portrait shoot was a great idea because we do not limit outfit changes within the timelines of the shoot.

Selena was great fun and we started with our white backdrop and then our mottled old masters backdrop both of which worked very well indeed.

I think she had about a million outfit changes but she was very quick at changing so did not spoil the flow of the shoot and with a few of our props thrown in it made for just the perfect party portrait photo shoot.

Sue and I have lots of balloons and helium which can be pre-requested as well as things like champagne props and lots of fancy wraps and throws too. We have been photographing people for over 20 years and lots and lots of birthday shoots so its quite possible we have a prop that you would love.

What does a portrait or birthday shoot cost and what do we get?

Our family or “portrait” photo shoots either here at our beautiful studio or out on location at our local nature reserve cost just £200.00. For this you get every single photo we take which is often around 100 and these are sent to you digitally ready to print and share with family and friends without any of our branding so completely clean and beautifully edited. These make perfect Christmas gifts.

You also get a free online client area with slideshow so that you can share with your family and friends too or just show off at work. This works flawlessly with smart phones too.

We also offer a full photo printing service from £1 per print.

To book a shoot we need a £50 deposit and the balance on the day. Please contact me for availability details on the above contact button or by calling our studio on 02380 767084

We work 7 days a week and do not charge extra for weekends or evenings.

We have over 220 verified google reviews which is pretty unique and speak for itself 💙
