FAQs - Portrait Sessions

 

PORTRAIT SESSIONS

Where are you based?

I am located just outside Coalisland, Co Tyrone.

Where do photo sessions take place? 

Depending on the type of session, they can take place in studio, at your home or on location.

How long will our Portrait Session last?

Sessions normally take around 1-2 hours. 

When do we pay for our session? 

A £50 non-refundable deposit is payable at the time of booking.  The balance is payable on the day of the shoot.  Please note that I do not accept cheques as a form of payment.  Bank transfer, PayPal or cash are the payment options available to clients.  If paying by bank transfer or PayPal, this payment must be made before the session takes place.  

What is included in the session fee? 

The session fee includes a pre-shoot consultation, the session itself, professional editing of the images & post-shoot ordering session.  It does not include any prints or digital copies of the images.  

What should we bring along to the session?

For sessions outdoors or at my studio, bring along with things that you normally take with you for a day out.  A favourite toy, books, for outdoor sessions sporting items (a football, bicycle etc, scooter, bubbles, bat & ball etc), an umbrella.  Snacks and a drink are useful too (clear/neutral colours if possible! – nothing chocolate or bright orange please).  It can get messy at times so baby wipes are a good idea and a spare outfit & shoes just in case. 

Feel free to bring along a variety of outfits to choose from for everyone taking part in the shoot.  I am happy to provide guidance beforehand on styling for your photo session. 

Outdoor Shoots - what happens If the weather is bad?

Given the nature of our weather in Ireland, I am used working in inclement weather.  I keep in touch with clients in the run up to the shoot and unless it’s giving torrential rain all day, we can work around the showers and grab some amazing shots.  Photographers do tend to prefer a more overcast day to a bright sunshine so it isn’t all bad. 

 

AFTER THE PORTRAIT SESSION

 

How do we view our photographs?

You are invited back for a reveal viewing at my studio where you can view all the images from your session.  This is normally around 3-4 weeks after your shoot.  It is at this point that you choose your package and products.

How many images will we be able to choose from? 

You are guaranteed at least 20 beautifully curated images to choose more.  Normally a lot more.   I tend to provide most in both colour & black and white so you get a great variety to select from. 

Most clients choose a number of images for the wall – I offer a range of artwork to my clients including framed prints, canvases or modern acrylic mounted products.  Some clients also like to include an album which will incorporate all your images in a stunning fine art product.  My price list is provided to clients at the time of booking.  

What is the average spend? 

Most clients spend between £500 and £2,000 - larger orders can be paid in 2 instalments if necessary.   One on the day of the viewing and the balance within 14 days. 

Who has copyright of the images - can I buy the photographs on a disc? 

Divine Photography retains the copyright to images at all times.   You are welcome to purchase digital download of images or a USB of the complete gallery of images.  You will be granted permission to reproduce the images for your personal use.  It is a criminal offence to copy, scan, photocopy, reproduce, or email any of the images purchased unless you have paid for digital files and have a licence to print.  You may not use the images for any business purposes without my permission, enter the pictures into any competitions, or sell them onto third parties such as stock libraries.
