What to Expect from a Party Photo Shoot?

I’ll be there to greet you on the driveway when you arrive for your party photo shoot and, once you’ve got everything you’ll need, we’ll head up the short path to the studio. Once we get inside, I’ll show you the changing area where you can put down your bags and then we’ll have a quick chat about what you’ve brought with you so that I can plan your session.  Then it’s time to get into your first outfit and away we go with the photo shoot fun.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve never had professional photos taken before, or if you’ve only been in a studio when you were a tiny tot, I’ll take you through all you need to know to look your absolute best including some of the modelling tricks of the trade!  We work through each of your outfits creating images of you all together and some of each individual guest as well so everyone will have the perfect souvenir from the party.   Some photos will be fun, some will be moody, some will be downright cheesy – there’ll be something to suit everyone.

I usually recommend ending up with your fanciest outfit – perfect if you’re bringing along party dresses or prom outfits.  That way we go out on a Hollywood style high when you’re well into the swing of modelling and can really strut your stuff.

Once you’re all done, you’ll gather up your stuff, pack your bags and head off to your next adventure… Pizzas, sleepovers, cinema, whatever!  My work isn’t done though. I’ll be taking all of your photos through to my editing suite so I can give them a little digital love and sparkle before I make them available to you to download (usually about two weeks after your session).  Print them, love them, share them as much as you like!

All the way through the session, the emphasis is on having fun and building your confidence in front of the camera.  I’ll guide you through absolutely everything you need to do and keep it all age appropriate – this is an ‘all giggles, no stress’ style session.

Choosing your Outfits

One of the most fun things about these parties is getting together to choose what you’re all going to wear.  You have up to four outfit changes in your session and I definitely recommend that you take on the role of stylist when you’re putting your looks for the shoot.  The thing to do is think about designing four different looks for yourselves and it’s always fun to end up with something a bit more formal / fancy.   If you’re looking for inspo, these are some ideas that people have used in the past…

  • Onesies – complete with slippers and teddies of course
  • Jeans and t-shirts – can’t go wrong with classic blue denim and white t-shirts
  • All neons – bust out your brightest colours with tutus and headbands
  • Leggings and crop tops – plain and simple or as funky as you like
  • Sports wear – pick your favourite sport and showcase your talent
  • Winter coats, hats and wellies
  • Party dresses – perfect for the end of your session and getting a little bit fancy
  • Your imagination is the only limit!

Don’t forget the accessories!

Boring Logistical Stuff about Party Photo Shoots

My studio is a great, versatile space with lots of different lighting and backdrop options so we can create images in almost any style.  However, it’s not the largest of places when it comes to people who aren’t taking part in the photo shoot. I definitely recommend only having one parent staying throughout the shoot (I do need an adult present at all times) so if you’re coming separately, you need to arrange to get dropped off and picked up at the end of your shoot.

Come as you want to get photographed – so with your hair and make up already done.  There’ll be time for touch ups and quick hair ups when you change outfits but you don’t want to spend all your time in the changing room and miss out on time in front of the camera.

Definitely bring along some water to keep yourselves hydrated while you’re ‘working’. I don’t recommend bringing along other snacks and drinks though – not because I’m mean but because there really won’t be a lot of time for snacking.  However, if you are bringing sweets or snacks to keep you going, please remember that I will be stealing some of them while you’re changing so prepare to share 🙂

Can you Come to my House for the Photo Shoot?2022-06-17T18:27:53+00:00

My studio is a great and versatile space in terms of both backdrops and lighting options so when you visit, I know I will have everything I need to give you a really great party experience.  For that reason, I can’t come to your house and do the same thing – I just wouldn’t be able to bring enough stuff to guarantee the quality for you.

Do I have to Have Modelling Experience to Enjoy these Sessions?2022-06-17T18:25:49+00:00

Definitely not.  It doesn’t matter one bit if you’ve never set foot in a photographic studio before. I’m going to give you lots of tips and tricks when it comes to posing and guide you through absolutely everything you need to do to get great images.  The emphasis at this session is totally on having fun and building confidence – you don’t need to have any ‘modelling’ experience to enjoy yourselves.

What Age Groups are these Parties Suitable For?2022-06-17T18:23:18+00:00

The official age range I’ve given these shoots is between and 8 and 16 years old but I tend to find that pre-teens and early teenagers are the folk that have the most fun at these photo shoots.

Do you Airbrush the Photos?2022-06-17T18:21:40+00:00

That’s a bit of a tricky question as airbrushing means different things to different people.  Each of the images that ends up in your gallery will have been edited to make sure it is looking it’s best and some of that might involve a little skin smoothing or removal of any temporary blemishes.  I’m going to guide you through everything you need to do at the session to make sure you are posing in the best way to show yourselves off and of course I’ll be using professional lighting which always helps.  However, I’m a firm believer that you’re beautiful just as you are and so I’ll never change your face or body shape and proportions – I don’t think it’s a right or healthy thing for anyone to see images of themselves that have been altered beyond recognition. The whole point of these sessions is to have fun and build your confidence in front of the camera – I promise you don’t need airbrushing to get great results.

What’s Included in the Party Photo Shoot Package?2022-06-17T18:16:52+00:00

Your party photo shoot package includes two hours in the studio for a group of up to four girls and four outfit changes.  You’ll also receive all of your edited images to download and share at print quality.

Will all of our Photos be of Us All Together?2022-06-17T18:15:24+00:00

Most of your photos will be of you in a group – after all you are partying together. However there will definitely be times when you’ll be flying solo so you’ll get a mix of photos of the group and of you on your own.

Can we See our Images on the Day?2022-06-17T18:13:23+00:00

When you leave the studio after your party, my work isn’t done.  I’ll take all of your images back to my editing suite where I will give each one in your gallery a good sprinkling of digital love. This process takes a couple of weeks so you won’t be able to see your pictures on the day but all good things are worth waiting for and, as your session fee includes all of your images to download, you’ll be able to enjoy them fully as soon as they’re ready.

Can we Bring Food?2022-06-17T18:10:51+00:00

You can bring along snacks if you want to be but to be honest, there isn’t a lot of spare time to hang around eating as you’ll want to be enjoying yourselves in the studio. Definitely bring along some water though – all models need to keep hydrated.

Do you offer Hair and Makeup?2022-06-17T18:07:32+00:00

I don’t offer hair and make up at the studio because I don’t have the space. It would also make the session pretty long with a lot of waiting around for everyone.  So come as you’d like to be photographed – if that means you get hair and make up done at a salon somewhere else then great, but I’m sure you’ll look just as lovely if you do it yourselves.  Getting ready together is part of the fun!

How Long is Party Photo Shoot?2022-06-17T18:06:44+00:00

When you book a party photo shoot, you have the studio for two hours so we have plenty of time to create images in each of your four outfits both as a group and on your own.

How Many Girls can Attend a Party Photo Shoot?2022-06-17T18:08:21+00:00

Party photo shoots are designed for the birthday girl and her three best friends – so four people in total with up to four outfit changes.
