How much is it to have my photos taken?
Our Family, Children, and Pet sittings are normally £40 however we regularly have offers available. You decide which format you’d like your images. We don’t hide our product prices; they start from as little as £4 and our full price list is available to view here. You don’t decide what you’d like until you view your pictures and then there is no minimum spend and no obligation to buy.
How do I book a sitting?
It’s best to give us a call so we can talk you through the experience, what to bring, work out the best time for you and explain where we are. We don’t ask for a booking fee or deposit before you book.
Can we view our pictures on the same day?
Yes you can, on quiet week days or with notice however we would always advise that you book a separate appointment for your viewing. Exhausted children (from having too much fun) normally don’t let you concentrate on choosing your photos and picking your favourites often takes longer than taking the photos.
Where are you?
Click here for a map. Our address is 3 Errington Street, Bebside, Blyth, Northumberland, NE24 4HP. We are outside of Blyth, not far from the large Blyth ASDA. From the A189 take the exit to the Jet Petrol Station then after the railway crossing take the 2nd left hand turn. We are the 3rd large white warehouse down that lane. If you pass the recycling centre you have gone too far.
How long does my order take and how can I pay?
Most orders take 2 weeks to complete, framed images can take longer. If you want an order quicker there is an option of a £10 priority service. We accept Card, Cash or Cheque but do not start to process orders until they are paid for in full.
What should we wear?
For a family sitting we advise you wear something simple, possibly Jeans and T-Shirt. Anything that won’t date the photos quickly. Bright colours work well but as long as one family member doesn’t wear a track suit and another a formal suit, you can wear whatever you’re comfortable in. Most session also give plenty of time for at least one change of outfit.
How many people can we bring?
Our camera room can comfortably fit 15 people for a family group. With Photoshop trickery we can sometimes accommodate more but it limits the variety we can do in a portrait session.
Do you have disabled access?
Our reception, studio, viewing and makeup room all have wheelchair access. Our toilet access is via steps.
Can we have our pet on our Family photo?
Yes, but please let us know at the time of booking if you are bringing animals with you.
Do you open on Sundays?
Our portrait studio is normally open Tuesday-Saturday 10am-6pm. We don’t do portrait sessions on a Sunday but wedding bookings are welcome.
Can I have a female photographer?
Lisa & Mark normally work as a team in the studio, however if you’d prefer to just have one of us in the camera room please let us know at the time of booking.
When can we view our pictures online?
Once you have viewed your images we will give you the option for them to be uploaded to our website. They are password protected so only you, your family and friends can see them. This is a free service and may take a couple of days before they are available.
