The Viewing Appointment


The Viewing

what happens after the newborn session?


31 January 2018

About a week after your session, you are invited back to the studio where we will view your images for the first time. You will no doubt be bubbling with excitement to see your beautiful baby captured as in that 7-10 days she will already have grown so much!

This is not a high pressure sales room, we sit back, have a coffee and watch a slideshow of the images.

We move on the viewing the images one by one on the big screen where you will give them a rating – Yes, no, or maybe. You do not need to worry about offending me here, if you do not love the image, then I do not want you to buy it!

This is usually the difficult part, but once you compare the images side by side, it’s sometimes a little easier to rule out ones you love less than others, even if you do not dislike them!

Once we have completed this first run, it’s usually much clearer which products or collection you will be needing. It’s important to remember that there is no pressure and you only chose what you love, and what your budget allows.

You have already received the price list during our consultation, but you can always find the up to date prices on the website, so you may by now have some idea of how you wish to display your images, but if you are still not sure, worry not! (Even if you don’t think you want something for the wall, it’s a good idea to complete this step.)

Take a snap of your wall on your phone, with either a sheet of A4 taped of something measurable and send it over to me before the appointment. I can mock up a few options which we have discussed during your consultation so you can see how you feel seeing them in your room. These can be fully customisable during the appointment and we can change out the images, sizes and display options.

You may wish to create a stunning picture wall, in which case a portrait box would be perfect, or perhaps you would prefer one large piece, we can view how both options would look so you do not leave unsure whether your investment will not fit in your house!

Payment is due when your order is confirmed. You can pay by any major credit card or cash. If you would prefer to opt for a larger collection than you originally thought, you can choose to split your payments into two or three, making your first payment at the viewing and the next one or two over the next two months.

Orders will be ready for collection 6 weeks after full payment is made, and you can enjoy your beautiful portraits for years to come.
