Who will take our photographs?
We will! Studio sessions and lifestyle sessions are all photographed exclusively by Nicholas and Carol, both award winning photographers. Newborn Photography is a little more special and takes longer and requires a lot of patience, therefore Carol shoots our newborn sessions in the comfort of our natural light studio in Aberdeen.
When, where, how…..
We are happy to accommodate when we can but we get booked up well in advance. During the summer, weekends aren’t always available for portrait sessions. We ask our clients to be as flexible as possible and arrange the sessions if possible during the day, during the week. Give us a call up to 6 weeks before to ensure you aren’t disappointed!
Nicholas Frost Photography offer studio sessions and lifestyle shoots at a location of your choice. Studio session take place at our studio on Auchmill road, Aberdeen. Lifestyle sessions can take place at the beach, at a park, by the river or in the city centre whatever suits you, give us a call and we can have a chat about locations.
A sessions duration usually depends mainly on the type of shoot, sometimes babies give us 10 minutes sometimes 30 minutes before they say enough is enough whereas a family shoot usually takes up to an hour. We allocate a 1 hour slot for studio sessions and 2 hours for location shoot, newborn shoots can take up to 4 hours!
What happens if we cant make the session?
It happens, we are human and understand. All we ask is for a phone call to let us know, theres nothing worse than waiting for a client that doesn’t turn up. If you don’t show up for your viewing and don’t let us know we ask for a £20 fee to book another viewing, this is refundable against prints and frames.
What should we wear, what should we bring?
Our style of photography is informal and would like you to feel comfortable during the session. We can discuss before the session but in general we ask for no logos, strips or spots. For young children and babies we recommend white or pastel colours for girls and bright colours such as blue for boys. Bright contrasty colors usually work well for fun children shoots whereas co-ordinated black, white or block colour t-shirts work well for families. Obviously at the end of the day the choice is yours, we have a variety of backgrounds to suit different colour clothing.
If it is your baby or young child being photographed then we would advise bringing some comfort toys or materials, something to grab the child’s attention perhaps. We have some props but if there is anything that you would like to bring then please do so and we will try our best to use it.
How do we view and select our images?
At the time of your session we will discuss this. Your photographs will normally go online to view usually with 7-10 days. We invite you back to the studio 2-3 weeks after your session. It is important to have a look at your photographs before you come back in for your viewing and have a think about where you would like to put your wall art. When you come in to view your images we will present you with a large screen slide show and using the latest software we will show you the best way to present your images in a wide range of framing products available.
