Your photography session

Your photography session

Deciding on a photography session is not something you do everyday. To make this special occasion as enjoyable as possible, I provide lots of support. With this in mind I will give guidance before, during and after your session. Whether you come in with your child, your pet or your whole family, you will experience quality and fun. I will tailor any session for you with a lot of attention to detail.

Before the session:

In our pre-session consultation we will discuss your ideas and expectations for the session. You will receive guidance on clothes and I will answer any questions you might have. Photo sessions can take place in my photography studio in W9. I am always happy to discuss any of your questions or wishes over the phone, by email and also in person.

Your session:

The session is generally calm and relaxed as well as fun. I will guide you through your session to get a variety of different shots. Most images will be gently posed but I like to include some more candid shots in your gallery as well. For this reason, I will give you plenty of opportunity to interact with each other. Each session is catered individually for you and your family – every family is different and every child is different. After all, we want to capture them as they truly are. Don’t worry about your children behaving perfectly during your session: I want them to enjoy the session and not feel stressed. Often their natural actions and responses lead to the most treasured images. So let me take the lead while you relax and enjoy. The session will take up to 1 hour.

After the session:

About 2-3 weeks after the session we will meet again for your viewing session. This is where you will be able to view your edited images. The viewing session will last approximately one hour. I will show you a slideshow of the best images from your session. You just have to sit back and enjoy. At the viewing you can choose your fine art print which is included in your session. And if you would like to order additional images or wall art we can discuss your options. We have a large selection of print and wall art choices on offer and I am always happy to help you decide and answer any questions you might have.

Once your ordered products are ready I will check each single item to make sure they are of the outstanding quality you can expect from Annika Bloch Photography. I take pride in hand-wrapping everything beautifully and hand-delivering it to your door.
