My preference is to shoot outdoors and give a sense of the place we live in. Wherever possible, I like to meet with people beforehand to have a coffee and discuss your needs. We normally pick a fine day, a local beauty spot or your garden and take a wide selection of images. As well as the formal shots, I like to capture the less formal, fun snaps. I enjoy these photoshoots and try to ensure everyone else does too. The shoot takes about 30 minutes and as everyone seems to enjoy them, the time flies.
