Photo Studio Cardiff
At the photo studio Cardiff we have a number of services available.
Wedding Photography Cardiff
On your wedding day I will be there with you every step of the way as your friend and photographer. I will take inspiration from the locations we are in to create and compose the most artistic, empathetic, candid and stylish memories of your day.
I will soak up the atmosphere of each scenario and seize every moment and opportunity. I will work like a will-o’-the-wisp to mingle amongst your guests without them knowing I’m there. I will seek out those tiny details that you’ve slaved over to personalise your wedding day. I will endeavour to take you away for some quiet time to enjoy some relaxed couple shots. I will also listen to all of your ideas and suggestions and guide you towards a shared visual goal. The conclusion will be an imaginative album or book of great quality and I will charge you honestly and fairly. We’ll have a really good time.
Newborn Photography, Child Photography and Family Photography Cardiff
For your family session I will welcome you to my photo studio Cardiff or meet you at a brilliant location…sand dunes, forest, urban alleyway? I can offer you a coffee or tea. I’ll spend a little time getting to know you either at home or in my Photo studio Cardiff. I’m a mum of two small kids Sonny and Sailor. I spend most of my ‘non working time’ stealing photos of them that one day I’ll make in to a glorious catalogue.
Some of my best work is of toddlers and young children. I love coaxing genuine smiles but equally I love a good serious face that speaks volumes about their personality and mood on the day. I’ll set up poses and compositions but freedom of movement is of paramount importance to me as your photographer…I like to roll with whatever interactions and expressions are unfolding in front of the lens. My aim is for you to leave a session thinking “that was great fun and more relaxing than I thought it was going to be!”
What will the session include?
Your newborn session will be an amazing hands on collective experience at the Photo Studio Cardiff. If I haven’t come to your house it means you’ve made the effort to make it to a photography studio in the first 2 weeks of your precious new baby’s life. The studio is heated and as a result will be warm, really really warm and as soothing as I can make it.
If there’s enough natural light I like to stick with that but if needs be I can use some diffuse studio lighting. I can play soft music or even a heart beat to keep your baby as contented as possible during this experience. It’s best to book as early as possible for these sessions. Newborns are still generally in a very deep sleep pattern at this stage. This is what we’re striving for. A happy, calm and soothed baby that won’t mind curling up in to gentle poses. And if they don’t like it then I give them a break and try something different. It’s impossible to place certainties on photographing a newborn.
Will it take long in the photo studio Cardiff?
Sessions can take a long time so most of all patience is really important. I like to have a clear 4 hour window whether we are at the Photo Studio Cardiff or not, to ensure there is no rushing and to cover some inevitable eventualities. There will be peeing, pooping and regular milk breaks required, but it is all water off a duck’s back. Your baby’s comfort and safety are number one on my priority list and while working together we can achieve some amazing and unforgettable moments for you to cherish. Choose your favourite from our session for your complimentary 12″ x 8″ print and take time to decide your presentation options from the rest of the shoot .* Composite techniques are used for head in hands shots.
Band Photography Cardiff
Bands/Musicians/Artists…come to me armed with styles, moods and location ideas and I will work with you on your vision. We can experiment and try different ideas out. Be bold and brave, original, unusual and I will too. We can style you in the studio or drive to places I’ve never been before. We can work magic in post production if you like. Just promise me one thing …no standing in a line looking pouty. I can supply you with the digital rights to your images for reproduction and media use.
