How can I book a shoot? Do I pay a deposit?
A shoot can be booked by sending me an email/facebook message or giving me a call/text. For portrait shoots I ask for a £20 non refundable deposit.
How much notice do you need to book a shoot?
I can book a shoot for as far a head as you'd like. Ideally shoots are confirmed at least 48 hours in advance, so that I can prep my equipment.
What type of shoots do you offer?
At the moment a wide range! From Newborns, children, cake-smash, maternity, couples, friends, family, to birthdays, events, weddings, commercial and promos - just ask!
Are Newborns put at risk?
Photographing Newborns up to 14 days old requires a lot of patience and skill. They are always supervised with images being manipulated in photo editing programmes to get the final result. Health & safety are always put first.
Where do shoots take place?
They are currently carried out in the comfort of your own home, space pending or at a beautiful outdoor location.
Do I need to do anything before I arrive?
Make sure children are fed and have had as good a night sleep as possible before the shoot. Try not to wear clothing with big items on the front such as slogan tees, this will be distracting in your photo!
If i'm coming to you, make sure that the space is clear and ready for me to set up in. Relax! Do not stress about anything and have an open mind!
How much are shoots? How do I pay?
Visit the services page to take a look at the available packages. If you are after something specific get in touch!
Shoots can be paid via cash, cheque or Card payments via PayPal (there is a small fee for this) (photos will not be edited or available to preview until money has cleared)
Do you have any offers on?
MLHP posts monthly offers on her blog & Facebook page, go like it to keep up to date!
How do I view my photos?
You will have access to a private, personalised, password protected online gallery to see your unedited photos and updated to see your final images. More information will be given at the relevant time. I am also considering "in person" viewings to show you the images in their full potential.
When will I get my photos?
Time frames vary depending on your shoot.
Ideally you'll get your previews within 7-14 days for portraits and 14-21 days for Weddings/Events. Photos are edited in chronological order, starting with the oldest shoot first. More information will be given to you once the shoot has taken place.
Can I print the photos myself?
You can print any high res digital files yourself, however the quality of the printing cannot be guaranteed, as I use specialist photographer only printing companies. For this reason, prices for digital files are set quite high.
What is your cancellation policy?
Portraits/Events will lose their non-refundable deposits. You may incur a cancellation fee if the shoot is cancelled with less than 48 hours before.
For Weddings cancellations please get in touch.
