We know you'll value the time we spend with you, as we are not a production line studio, we only book a small number of sessions each week, so you'll never feel rushed. We customize each portrait to your needs and discus the various styles you might want to achieve, as well as your preference to digital finishing & airbrushing of images.
Our private studio nestles in the beautiful Carmarthenshire countryside near Crosshands, within easy reach of Swansea, Llanelli & Carmarthen, just an hour's drive from Cardiff, with lots of parking available, great views and unlimited coffee!
What should we expect at the session?
For sessions taking place at our studio, we normally begin by hanging out for a few minutes with the yourselves to know each other over a coffee or soft drink. Once we're all relaxed, we can start with a few in-studio images, if children are involved in the shoot we let them dictate the pace, and allow them to come out of their shells naturally. Depending on who's in front of the camera, what you're looking for & the weather we may venture outside to some favorite spots close by.
On locations or sessions at your home we would begin by taking a look around to find a few suitable locations, then we can discuss what we've found.
Newborns are ideally under 7 days old, however we can stretch it to 10 days if needed, these sessions nearly always take place in the studio and we always plan lots of time for newborns so there are breaks for feeding & changing etc...
Toddlers & young children are always captured much better when they're happy, so scheduling for the right time of day to suit your child is very important, our morning sessions are best and we always advise this time – but please talk to us and tell us your child's schedule. Also make sure your little one has been well fed and please bring some non messy snacks along as well as some favorite toys.
When photographing families, we will normally run through the must have groups we've discussed with you at your planning appointment, we'll try to do these relatively quickly while we have the kids full attention, then we can focus on smaller groups and individual images.
Lastly we'll schedule a convenient time for you to come back to view your images.
