SHOOT MY LIFE!
WHAT IS SHOOT MY LIFE?

Shoot My Life is a family photography service where you hire me to shoot you, candid and unposed doing whatever you do! That might be a family park or playground shoot, a birthday party at a restaurant or chilling at home doing whatever you as a family do - baking, getting the kids ready for school, building a snowman. You decide! The age of the participants is irrelevant, the connection is the important part!

A window into her world. Little girl's tears and Mom is always there.

WHY SHOULD YOU HIRE ME?

1. I'm a photographer. I work so you don't have to!

 This is your family time. You can't be a part of the unfolding scene if you're behind the camera. Plenty of time to take your own shots another time, let me take care of it for a while.

2. Candid, natural shots with no fuss.

My style is very natural. I get close when I need to and hang back when I don't. There's no fuss, no posing and I shoot using natural light. Anyone watching will think I'm part of your group so there's no need to feel you're on display to the world. 

3. No hidden costs. 

I individually edit a selection of the photos I take and you get them delivered to your inbox via WeTransfer. No hidden extras with the exception of travel expenses if we are outside my local area.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

It's very simple:

1. You email me with your requirements. Date, location, amount of time and any other specifics or wishes.

2. We discuss and agree the details.

3. You pay a 30% non-refundable deposit.

4. Where possible, we meet a day or so prior to the shoot and talk about the what, when, where, who and how. I do this to ensure we all know what will happen on the day. I don't like stress any more than you do and preparation is everything. At this point you pay the balance so we've got that out of the way. If it's not feasible to meet, then we email or chat some other way and you pay the balance by bank transfer/PayPal.

5. We meet for the shoot.

6. I edit your images and send them to you via We Transfer.
