Q. How long will it take for my order to arrive?
A. Orders take a maximum of 4 weeks to arrive after ordering.
Q. What should I wear?
A. Our portrait sessions are fairly informal and we therefore suggest that your attire is not too formal. For family photographs we recommend an overall clothing look /colour scheme rather then everyone wearing their favourite top which can look a bit of a jumble. There is always time within a shoot for a change of clothes and a selection of accessories can work well. The most important thing however is that you are comfortable in what you are wearing.
Q. How long do you keep my images on file?
A. Your images are kept on file for 1 month after your viewing – we will however keep selected images for future purchase if requested.

A gift voucher can either be purchased on line, please navigate to Purchase a Session or by calling the studio on 01789 268781. Please call the studio for purchasing gift vouchers with additional credit and we will arrange a special gift pack to be assembled.
