New Digital Studio Portraits at Firetree

Introducing the new digital studio for portraits at Firetree. For the last 9 years I have been taking children down to the bluebell woods for seasonal family portraits. There is nothing quite like a good run around a wood with a family! I run the shoot at the end of April for one or two days and the sessions are always fully booked.

Many parents are frustrated that they can’t make the date, and although it has not happened often, the shoots can get rescheduled or cancelled because of the weather.

This year, while I was at the wood, I photographed a great many backgrounds and shots of the bluebells in order to create a digital studio and a virtual bluebell wood. This means I can re-create the beautiful background of the wood at any time of the year in the digital studio.

Although there are no real bluebells on the shoot, the sessions are great fun and the children are encouraged to imagine the wood that surrounds them!

Prints and Products:

There is a very different process to producing the images from the shoot as I can plan in advance which images I am going to create. Because of this, there is a different booking and ordering process to make it easy for my clients.

There are a set of 5 different set-ups available so I can give parents a collection containing a family portrait, a portrait of the children together, seated poses and close-up shots of individual children. All designed to create a gallery. As with all my portrait work, I supply digitals free with wall artwork supplied* so you never feel you are missing out on keeping the image for your own printing.

With my digital studio sessions the shoot is a little over an hour and you choose your artwork package after the shoot. The grey background studio images are available on-line for parents to choose their poses a couple of days after the session. The chosen poses are then custom crafted into beautiful artworks. Parents are invited back to the studio view the finished images before their artwork is completed.

As part of the digital studio, I am offering three custom collections. These are discounted collections of artwork and digitals that are not available on the brochure and are unique to the digital studio.

Flexible and Creative

Of course not everyone will want the collections, the full product brochure will be available at the final viewing in case changes need to be made to the package. I always make it a priority to ensure all my clients leave my studio with a purchase they are over the moon about.

If you are interested in booking the shoot, I do a weekday pre-school shoot for families and children (up to 2) for £25 and all weekend shoots are £75. Just fill in the contact form below to find out more.

The shoots are suitable for children from sitting. The sessions are not suitable for newborns.

*Digital files are supplied with wall art purchases over £500 and not print boxes unless offered as part of a collection.
