A picture paints a thousand words: so why not tell your story in photos? Capture a beautiful family moment, let your wild side loose or discover a side you never knew. It’s all about getting pampered, looking the part and enjoying a fun-filled experience – as well as creating timeless memories to treasure. The result is simply picture perfect.
On the day, you will meet your photographer and stylist (if undergoing a makeover) before receiving a consultation to determine what you want from the experience and how you want to look. The makeover is carried out by a professional stylist which includes hair and make-up, and you will usually have a complimentary drink too.
Then it’s into the studio for a fun-filled photographic experience! Your photographer (sometimes accompanied by an assistant) will offer guidance and direction throughout, and in most cases you can use props to personalise your shots. The experience may also include different backdrops or use of lighting to introduce additional character.
Most photoshoots are done in your own outfits, although a limited selection of clothing and accessories may be available.
After the photoshoot you will be able to browse the shots either on the day, or come back at an agreed date to view the results.

One common issue that arises from photoshoot experiences surrounds the photos themselves. They're normally pretty expensive. You usually get one small print included (or a digital file in some locations) included in the experience, with the option to purchase more. The most common complaint I have seen is that some locations use very pushy sales tactics to try and get you to buy optional photographs. You do not NEED to buy additional prints if you choose not to, but bear in mind the photographer may try to put pressure on you. Also bear in mind that due to copyright restrictions, you can't normally take the digital files to Asda or Tesco and get them printed on the cheap without a copyright release form.
