Where would our photoshoot take place?
We are Moving Light Photography to have so many stunning backdrops for photoshoots. We could meet at a beautiful park, a location that is special to you or even in your own garden. Some locations come alive at certain times of the year, for example when the daffodils are in bloom or the bluebells. We can discuss locations together in our pre-shoot briefing and find the perfect spot for our shoot.
How far do you travel?
I’m happy to drive within a 20 mile radius of Bowdon, which is near Hale and Altrincham. My postcode is WA14 2JN.
How long does the session last?
Sessions typically last up to two hours but if we have some issues with the weather or with little ones’ moods, we can take longer. I like to work without time pressures on a photoshoot so if it takes slightly longer, that’s fine by me.
What if my other half isn’t keen?
This is one of my most frequently asked questions! More often than not, it’s Mum who is keen on having a portrait photo session with a reluctant Dad in the wings. My photoshoots are fun and relaxed, so hopefully they will ease into it. There will be lots of opportunity behind the camera for making the children laugh, so the lens won’t always be on them. Remember, we're asking for just two hours of their time to capture this particular stage in your family’s history. However, if that fails, there is always bribery!
Can I bring two sets of clothes?
I find that changing from one set of clothes to another can give the photoshoot a natural interval and gives everyone some time-out to get changed and refresh. Obviously it depends on the location as to where you may get changed, but it creates two different moods and styles to the images, which I love. Sometimes it can be as simple as a different colour top or coat, which differentiates one stage of the photoshoot from another.
