First consider two options – outdoor or studio or your home. You will need to consider what the occasion is, who will be in the shoot and seasonal weather conditions. This does not mean you can’t have one over the other just because of limitations. It simply means we’ll prepare appropriately considering all those you’re thinking of so it is good to have a chat. That said, photographing outdoors in the rain might not be the best idea for everyone involved!
What to wear
Wear what you want! That’s typically what I would tell clients. However, there are certain types of outfits which come out better when photographed. Heavily patterned and graphic printed dresses and shirts tend to make your photograph too busy and can be distracting. If you tend to avoid wearing bright coloured clothes I suggest trying out those bold colours for your photos. You will be pleasantly surprised how gorgeous they are in photos. If we are going outdoors it is best to wear smart casual or casual outfits. If you are coming to the studio I suggest getting two sets of outfits – casual and formal – for everyone.
Your photo shoot with Songy is a very casual affair. Clients finish their session with smiles on their faces. Whether we are running/lounging around at a local park or sitting at an ornate chair in the studio you’ll be relaxed and having fun. That’s how all these images you see in this website are created. The shoot itself takes between 1 to 2 hours.
We process photos, retouch, print and reveal them in the studio so that everyone can enjoy seeing the result of the shoot. If it is not convenient for you to attend the ‘reveal’ we could arrange a pickup and delivery service.
Your photographs are expertly processed, retouched and printed. We then archival mount and present your photos in a folio box. These make a great keepsake as they are made with materials of museum quality. You’ll also receive corresponding digital images in a disc or in a drive.
