If you'd like your child's photo taken you'll pre register within 2 weeks of my visit so I have your permission to photograph your child and your contact details to let you know when your photos are ready for viewing.
What happens during the photo week? During your photo week I'll be at the centre at days and times agreed with your centre manager, preferably morning while the children are at their most active. This also causes the least disruption to the centre’s staff! Whilst taking photos I try my best not to interrupt or influence the children's activities so that the children can become comfortable with my presence and can quickly forget I'm there, this enables me to get some fabulous natural candid shots.
Can we include siblings in the shots? Throughout the visit to your centre I will be taking multiple shots of each child playing and engaged in activities, if you'd like other siblings included, please let your centre supervisor know this so it can be arranged.
What happens after the photo session? I'll get busy editing all the photos and then upload them to a secure password protected gallery on my website. This normally takes 2-3 weeks. When your images are ready for viewing, I'll send out an email or SMS to the parents who have pre registered to let them know that they can log in and view their images and place their orders. Once the orders have been placed, they will be processed and posted directly to your home address or delivered to your centre for collection.
Does the centre benefit from the photography session? Yes it does. By having me to do your photography, there'll be no cost for my time while at your centre. Your centre will also receive complimentary digital copies of group photos together with complimentary staff profile photos if required and I provide 25% discount for photos to any staff members who has children are at the centre.
Will this require much extra work for the centre staff? Not at all! I work hard so the centres don’t have to but there are a few things that they will need to do.
Once the photography session is booked in with the centre, staff will need to display some promotional material so the parents are aware of photo week, they will also need to gather the pre registration forms so I know the names of the children and which days they attend so I don't miss anyone.
If the family has opted to have their photos delivered to the centre, staff will need to ensure parents get their order.
