“Home is where our story begins…”
The Lifestyle set is a new addition to my studio and was introduced as a way to safely photograph newborn babies (without touching them) after the Covid-19 lockdown in Spring 2020. The set is designed to produce images with a light airy feel. The theme is simple, elegant and white with a splash of neutral or pastel colours. Your gallery will be a beautiful range of relaxed natural portraits of your family and children with a luxury touch. You know those luxury home styling catalogues you receive through the mail and those magazine shoots you see with careful styling and no clutter? That will be the set for your shoot. Premium and styled yet simple and elegant. A timeless look that isn’t going to date.
I will ask you to position the baby and older children for lighting but as I say it is very relaxed and I expect older children to wriggle, crawl, jump and sprawl! All of which is perfectly fine and will make for some great images. For baby I will take a variety of images in different angles, using different outfits and I will also take some feature images (fingers, toes, ears, button noses…). I have some outfits and wraps in the studio that you are welcome to use. I will ensure that they have been untouched for 72 hours before your shoot and obviously all linen and outfits are washed in between each shoot.
With regards to Social Distancing, the studio is spacious and it is entirely possible to remain 2m’s away from each other. However, I will wear a visor and/or a mask and gloves for the entire shoot as a precaution. I am only booking 1 shoot a day weekdays with a maximum of 3 shoots a week and trying to keep the studio clear of Clients for 24 hours in between shoots. All surfaces and handles are cleaned with antibacterial cleaner before and after every shoot. I change my clothes after cleaning and before your shoot. Hand sanitiser and hand washing facilities are available and I will ask you to wash your hands on arrival.
The Lifestyle shoots are proving a real success. They produce a relaxed “at home” vibe without you having the stress of tidying up and decluttering. The images are beautiful and I’ve received such wonderful feedback from Clients so far.
These shoots aren’t just for Newborns! They are also suitable for maternity, baby and young family photo shoots. Would you like further information or details of availability?
