Information about photoshoots
What/Who we photoshoot?
I specialize in people photoshooting of every age cathegory - portraits of models, non-models, fototests, children, newborn, families, pregnancy photos, wedding portraits, photos with pets, bussines portraits, graduating announcements photos etc.
For who are portraits photoshootings?
Portraits are for ladies (also for men) of every age cathegory. Nice photos can be done in your 15th,30th or even 50th, in every size, it doesn't matter, whether you wear size S or XXXL. We try to fit photoshooting for everyone to make more visible everything what is beautiful and what you like on your body, and try to hide what you like less.
I want photo seasson, what should i do?
You should contact me and say what genre of photo shooting whould you like to complete. We can deal on date and time (we work during the week or the weekend). If you want more genres in one photosession we can combine them (for example portrait, glamour and nude, or children and family session), what is very often using option, but some of the sessions could't be combined. You will choose what you prefer - session in studio, exterior or interior. Before the photo session we will send you list of things that are great to take with on photosession.
How does proceeds the portrait seasson?
You'll come to us, we'll speak about your wishes and preferences about sessions, you'll show us what you have brought, so your clothes, acessories, if you have ordered styling package, we'll make you hairstyling and make-up and we'll start shooting. In very first moments we'll start very easily, try lightings, essential poses, we will help you with right and good looking poses, expressions, clothes combinations etc. You can take a look to our books about modeling and posing. After some moments when you'll get ready we can try more complicated poses, change backgrounds, lightings, clothes or even hairstyling. You no need to hessitate about photoshooting, we try to guide you and help you to look as good as possible and feel comfortable during this time.
How does proceeds children photoshoots?
Newborns are photographed 2 - 3 weeks old. We can take photos of older babies too, but this age is the best for newborn photos because babies sleep well. In children photo sessions we change scenery, props, we try to take as much natural photos as it is possible, sometimes even funny. For children is important to have fun during photosessions, so we try to make it for them as much enjoyable as it is possible, so they will have nice memories not only in pictures.
How much time it takes and When we will get photos done?
Photographing of newborns often takes 2-3 hours, first we take photos when they are awake, and then we try to asleep them, to make them well positioning. Older kids in principe - the older kid, the older photoshooting. Three-years child will last less, than for example ten-years child. Anyway, always it will take not least than one hour to maximum 3 hours.
Adult portraits, nude, glamour etc. will take from 2 hours to 5 hours. Pregnancy photos apx. 2 hours. After photoshooting we will all together choose final photos. In case of wedding photoshoot we will choose them another day, of course.
Retouching and photo editing will take much more time than photoshooting. Maximum time for finishing photos is 4 weeks, but in mostly cases it takes about 1-2 weeks. All it depends on how much photos you'll choose and how much photoshootings we have in that seasons.
I want special retouch, it is possible?
Intensity of retouching is on your own. Every photo needs to be retouched, even more or less, but always I retouch as much as customer wish. I can retouch almost everything - acne, freckles, we can make you slimmer, make bigger or smaller breasts, recover scars, wounds, signs, wrinkles, remove celulitide, make your hair bigger, add lashes, whitter your teeth or even add missing tooth. Retouching of for example acne is automatic, I think nobody wants it in photos, but not everybody want to be slimmer, or have removed signs, so it depends on you and how you decide.
In children photos we ofter retouch little wounds, prickly heat, visible diapers etc.
In some cases we can change color of your clothes. We retouch all body, not only face, so you no need to hessitate, that it would look non-realistics. Of couse we retouch enviroment and background around you, so you won't have mess around you or sticking background.
What all you'll get?
All final photos you choosed. You'll have them all in more versions (because everyone of us likes something else), in differend color and style types, black & white or sepia versions. In case you choosed similar photos, or photos from one seria and they go together, you'll get sets. All these photos are on CD/DVD in folders - Print and Web, so web for web using, Facebook, email etc. and Print versions for printing from little photos for your wallets to big canvas to your living rooms. All photos are big pixels, so you can print them on everything you want. We want to keep quallity of provided photos, so we don't provide you non-retouched photos. Thanks for understanding!
You can see some before & after photos:
When we should come?
A lots of people ask me, if is necessary to come before agreed time. It is not necessary, on the contrary, is important to come on time we dealed. It's therefore we often have before you or after you another photo sessions and we must change scenery, props, unmess studio etc. If you'll come sooner, you must wait, if later we have less time for you, because of photoshooting after yours.
