How to book the Photoshoot?
Step1: Select a photoshoot: I offer following type of photoshoots Newborn, Maternity, Sitter, Cake Smash, Family.
Step2: Select a package: All the pricing and packages information is available on website. There are no hidden charges.
Step3: Contact for booking: We’ll discuss on available dates and any other questions you have. Here is the link for contact form
Step4: Fill the contract form: Details will be provided after you contact for booking.
Step5: Transfer the booking deposit: Reserve the photoshoot date by transferring the £75 (non-refundable) Session Fee as booking deposit. Payment details will be provided after you contact for booking.
NOTE – As session fee is included in packages, so you would only pay remaining amount after the session. For example: If you are booking a package worth £295, you would transfer £75 at the time of booking and remaining £220 after the session.
What’s next after booking?
Step1: On the day of photoshoot, you would arrive either at my home studio for an indoor photoshoot or at a beautiful outdoor location for the photoshoot. We’ll have an amazing photo session. We’ll also ensure that we maintain proper social distancing during photoshoot. You happily go home after the session.
Step2: Remaining Payment transfer: After the photo session, you would transfer remaining payment online within 24 hours from the completion of photo session. Apologies, but I do not accept cash anymore.
(NOTE: Any delay in payment of fees payable will affect the delivery period of final pictures and products. Pictures full and final editing process would not start till remaining payment is complete. Hoping you understand this and find it reasonable.)
Step3: Picture Selection and Editing: Based on your package, I (Photographer) will select best photos from a number of clicks taken on the day of photoshoot. I select pictures based on a number of technical and artistic criteria so that you get the best pictures. I always ask my clients to trust me for photos selection. I then start the photo editing process.
If you still wish to have an opportunity of picture selection, you can add ‘AddOn – Picture selection option’ to your package.
(Note: I do not give/show raw/unedited pictures, so any such requests get declined.)
Step4: Final images and products: Final images will be delivered in 3 – 4 weeks from the clearance of full payment. If package includes prints I’ll notify you when the prints are ready, and you would then collect them from my home studio at an agreed date and time.
Important points to consider before booking your session
- Selection of the best images : At the session, I shoot for the number of images you have purchased and till I am fully satisfied that I have got sufficient number of images. So there is no need for selection.
However, if any client insist on having a choice for selection of their images by themselves, I do offer an Add On for picture selection which should be purchased in advance of the photo session.
- I (Photographer) believe in honest transparent pricing which you can view at my website before booking with me. I have tried my best to simplify the whole experience right from the begining of booking till the delivery of the images.
All the sessions at papaya Peach Photography comes with a set number of high resultion edited images depending on the package. There is no hidden obligation to purchase additional image or any product from Papaya Peach Photography. You will never require to attend any high pressure sale session to recieve your images.
- Have you checked my portfolio? – Yes, this is very important, not just for booking me but for booking any photographer.
You should always check a photographers portfolio and style. And then ask these questions i.e. do you like their work and style? Would imagine your pictures looking like pictures in the photographer’s portfolio ? If answer is yes, then you should approach the photographer for booking otherwise continue your search till you find right one for you.
- You have seen some pictures on internet and you are looking for a photographer to produce their duplicates – I have my own style of creating and editing pictures which is reflected in my portfolio on my website. The pictures delivered will be inline of my portfolio.
I can certainly look at others work and take inspiration from them, so if you have seen some images somewhere that you like, you can definitely share them with me and I’ll consider them while planning for your session. And these images should be shared in advance of the session, if you show them to me just before starting your session I may not be able to consider them unfortunately as sessions are planned in advance.
However, each photographer has their own unique vision and style of work and no one can or should duplicate other’s work.
