Lifestyle photo shoot checklist

Getting the best out of our photo sessions involves a little planning on your part. Sorting out the details will mean the shoot goes perfectly and you end up with some wonderful photos to last a lifetime!

Eat, drink and sleep well

All are necessary for life, as well as good portrait sessions! Seriously, plan an early night the day before out session, adults as well as children. As rested means relaxed. And don’t turn up hungry – have some high-energy drinks and snacks on hand – Dad will appreciate it!

Organising your families clothes

Choose clothes that people feel relaxed in and plan colours to match as a group, rather than just for the individual. Get everything ready beforehand and bring some alternatives, just in case of accidents! I’d avoid brand names and logos as they tend to date the photographs and stick with solid neutral coloured items.

Bring along some props

This could be as simple as a child’s favourite toy. Or a piece of sports equipment. Something that makes the image unique to you guys and helps people relax. Perhaps a favourite book, or something from nature. I’ll have suggestions but you know your family better than me! Go creative!

Liverpool photographers checklist for families

Arrive on time

Fairly obvious but arriving in rush, not only cuts into your time on location but makes everyone a little stressed and trust me, this comes out in the pictures. So get there ten minutes early, have a look around, I’ll be there and we can plan out some poses and have a bit of ‘getting to know each other’ time.

Have a laugh!

Fun and laughter all make great photography. If Mum and Dad are relaxed and having fun, often means the little ones will too. And I promise not to tell too many rubbish jokes!

Finally, keep an eye on my site and Facebook pages

I’ll post up a sneak-peek as quick as I can online (as long as you are cool with this) – so please have a look and give it some sharing love to friends and relatives! Once I’ve finished editing the images you will have your own password protected online gallery and of course all of them on a CDR or USB pen ready for printing.

Sneak Peek at an Italian wedding

I was lucky enough to be asked to take some photos for a lovely couple who married in Tuscany, Italy. Absolutely stunning venue and reception. The Bride and Groom have asked for a little privacy – so only a taster here I’m afraid. Enjoy !

Happy New Year !

Happy New Year !

If you are getting married this summer and still haven’t booked a wedding photographer, I’ve got some availability left in June and July – drop me a PM and lets check dates. My wedding photography prices and packages are detailed via the jump – Of course I understand every wedding is different and with this in mind I am more than happy to be flexible with my pricing, if you have specific requirements or getting married mid-week, or arranging a winter wedding later in 2016, early 2017, drop me an email or give me a call and I will get back to you with a fair and accurate bespoke quote.

Be quick though – I limit the number of events I can manage each year – as I’m a full time photographer during the week, and with a young family I need a little time off 🙂

Beatles themed party

Another great party a few weekends back … a Beatles themed party in Liverpool at the wonderful Hard Days Night Hotel. For those that don’t know, or couldn’t guess, its a brilliant Beatles themed hotel. I’ve shot there loads of times, both weddings and parties. Indeed, my first wedding of 2016 is back there early January. Anyway, a fab 40th birthday for Tara and Simon – loads of friends and loads of dressing up. Here are just a few of my favourites from the evening.

Abhayah Liverpool Wedding Photography

As promised a few weeks back, some of my favourites from a fabulous evening at the Abhayah Liverpool venue, on Prescot Road in the Old Swan. It is a great venue and somewhere that was new to me – although I only live about ten minutes drive away. Wonderful staff and entertainment and a super friendly and up for it crowd of family and friends. Thank you to Jackie and Giuseppe for choosing me to be your wedding photographer !

Digital packages

Many couples are requesting their final collection of images on a USB pens / flash drives  – I guess highlighting the way individuals use technology these days. More and more devices no longer have CD drives and I have found a great supplier of bespoke pen drives, in eco friendly wood – so about time to rock out some pictures. Here they are from the last wedding I covered.

Also, as you can see, the flash drives are engraved and in their own lovely wooden box – a really nice touch I think. Of course, if you have seen something different – I’m open to suggestions, to make it the perfect digital keepsake.

Busy summer …

I’ve had a really busy summer – some smashing weddings with some fabulous people. But where are the photos? Well I always ask and respect couple’s wishes if they don’t want images in the public domain. And I don’t ask the reason why – up to them in the end – be it jobs or whatever – no problem. And of course their galleries remain password protected.

Anyway, I’ve opened up my books again for next year and 2017 – so if you would like a free consultation, I’m more than happy to visit or meet at your wedding venue. Don’t worry I don’t do a hard sell or give you any stress – please get in touch via the contact form or call me on 07810 321 634 and lets hook up over a coffee.
