Information about your session
Outdoor lifestyle sessions are held at a place of your choice that has meaning or significance to you as a family. It may be a forest, a park, a lake or some other city location. Studio portraits are taken in my studio which is located in Markuševec, Zagreb. The studio has a selection of clothing and accessories, also some toys and books to help your child relax and stay entertained during the shoot.
I am available for photo sessions any day of the week, please call or email for availability.
For the outdoor session I highly suggest shooting one to two hours before sunset to create the soft light and atmosphere as seen on the outdoor section of my portfolio.
HOW TO BOOK AND PAY
Simply call or drop me an email for availability.
Once you have booked a time and date, I will ask you to sign a contract containing terms and conditions and pay a non-refundable deposit of 200kn to hold your appointment. The remaining of the session fee is due before I present your edited photos in your private online gallery.
MY PHOTOGRAPHING STYLE
I will first take some time to know you and your child, I am not going to rush you into being photographed. While shooting outdoors I very rarely ask any family member to look directly into my camera, and often just let children do their thing and lead the session. I will not force anyone to smile or be something they don't feel comfortable about.
Studio sessions are a little bit more posed but I am still just following your moods and wishes and am trying to get beautiful photographs and poses just by letting you relax while talking to me.
WHAT TO BRING AND WEAR
I suggest bringing a few different outfits for your child and feel free to bring anything that has significant meaning to you or props that you would like to include: teddy bears, blankets, toys, hats. For a family photo shoot you certainly shouldn’t feel you need to have identical clothing for each family member, but it works best when a family wears complementary tones or colour shades. I do suggest to keep it simple and start with a colour palette of neutrals and build from there.
For the studio session, if you are looking to achieve the look presented in my gallery, avoid branded clothing and aggressive patterns. Neutral colours work best to keep the focus on the subject.
In order to give you the highest quality images possible, I select only the best from your session. From there, each image is individually edited and artistically retouched. Due to the time involved in this process, I do not show every image taken from your session. Within four weeks of your session the digital images will be ready and available for you to view in a private, password protected online gallery. These images will be low resolution and watermarked for the purposes of viewing and selection. Once you have chosen your digital images (5, 10 or 20 depending on your selected package), I will upload the high resolution fully edited files into your gallery for you to download.
Additional fully edited high resolution digital images outside of your package can be purchased for a price of 100kn each.
Prints are usually available for collection within four weeks after the order is placed.
Your online proof gallery will be live for 60 days after which will be erased. During this time you may share with family and friends.
