THE PRE- CONSULTATION
The planning stage! What will be the result?
The pre-consultation will help answer any important questions you have and allows Lorna to get to know you and your family ahead of time.
We will go over all the little details, like what to wear, location planning, the look and feel of the session, how your images will be displayed, colours you love, designing albums, all those little things that may worry you. Lorna will explain how she plans and shoots the session with what the outcome will be. Pre-consultations happen in-person or on the phone.
Before we chat, it is a good idea to ask yourself the following questions :
WHERE do I want to display my images?
HOW do I want to enjoy them in 5-10 years?
WHAT “look” would I like?
WHY do I want these images now?
THE SESSION / PHOTOSHOOT
The Creative Process - Design & Creativity = Results
Shoots are considered stressful for families. You are probably hoping everyone will “behave”, especially Dad, wondering about what to wear etc. Sessions with Lorna are fun-filled, happy and relaxed, Lorna loves to see everyone's real personality. Lorna’s years of experience with kids from being the eldest of eight children in a blended family, to being a mother of three including twins, she’s seen it all a thousand times over! When you work with Lorna, proper planning, a solid goal and knowing exactly what will happen ahead of time, will help you feel confident and you will know that there is nothing to worry about!
Shoots take place in Lorna's home-studio near Llantrisant. Lorna works with controlled studio lighting and uses beautiful props to enhance and customise your images. The environment is cosy and relaxed, and this is where Lorna creates images of newborns and babies all year round. For family & Children sessions nature is the best backdrop! Sessions at one of the local beauty spots make for some amazing and unique images, especially if the location is special to you. So think about where you’d like to have your session, or Lorna can recommend places. Lorna's is committed to providing your family with an amazing experience, great customer service and resulting in the creation of special artwork for your home.
