OUR LITTLE MINI SHOOTS
We run these once or twice a year. They're slightly different to our other lifestyle shoots. Here's the lowdown:
WHAT ARE THEY?
30 minute sessions, usually outdoors in nature.
We specify the location before you book and let you know where to meet us.
You arrive, we have a mess about for half an hour, maybe sniff the flowers, kick some leaves, have a giggle, take some nice relaxed photographs, and then you carry on with your day.
We then send you some proofs via an online gallery. You pick your favourites and download and/or order prints from there.
It's dead easy.
WHO ARE THEY FOR?
Anyone! Often, we photograph kids or small family groups but it's not uncommon for us to shoot couples or individuals. Anyone who wants their photograph taken really.
WHAT DO WE GET?
20 - 30 minute photoshoot
An online gallery of proofs (usually 25+)
3 high resolution, print ready JPEG files, downloadable through the gallery
Physical prints and additional JPEGs are available at extra (very reasonable) cost
To give you an idea, the gallery from our last shoot is at the bottom of this page.
We do our best to make people smile, laugh and generally enjoy the whole experience. Please be aware these shoots are active rather than static, we rarely ask you to stand there and pose, we're more likely to suggest that you move about in some way. This keeps it natural and the photographs relaxed. As such, these shoots don't usually lend themselves to larger groups but please chat to us if you're unsure.
THE NOT-TOO-SMALL-TO-READ PRINT:
COME PREPARED & STAY ALERT
These shoots are in the great outdoors and usually in public spaces. There might be a short walk to get to us, please chat to us about this at the time of booking as necessary.
We do our best to pick the most sensible spots but we aren't able to guarantee the condition/cleanliness as you might expect. There might be mud, litter, insects, nettles, hidden animal faeces, disguised geotagged treasure and any other number of random possibilities. How involved you and your little people get in the environment is totally your call. Personally, we're happy for our son to sit in the mud and get dirty, but we appreciate you might not be, nor might you want grass stains on your favourite white trousers. If we suggest something you're not comfortable with, please say so and don't go along with it! Please also keep an eye on the safety of children throughout, we want you to avoid stains/stings/tears etc wherever possible! We appreciate we're stating the obvious here, but better safe than sorry.
Please arrive on time. We build in a short gap between appointments so if you arrive late, that time comes off of the time we're able to spend taking photographs. Equally, we'd be grateful if you didn't arrive really early as we don't want to crowd the previous shoot either!
WHAT IF THE WEATHER IS AWFUL?
We get wet?
Photos in the rain can look pretty epic if you're up for it. We take a bit of a rain shower in our stride. If it looks a little more serious/long lasting, we may need to reschedule. You'll be offered an alternative day (most often the next day if available) and if you can't commit to the date offered we'll happily refund any monies paid.
When you book, we ask for a €10 deposit to reserve your time slot. If you need to change your time, we'll do our best to accommodate this but can't guarantee to do so if we're already booked up. If you let us know more than 28 days before the appointment date, we'll refund your deposit, it it's any later than that, I'm afraid it becomes non refundable.
The €35 balance is due on the day of the shoot. You can pay this in cash or via Revolut/Bank Transfer.
