How to have your portraits
Have you put as much thought into how to have your portraits as you have (hopefully put) into the session itself?
A lot of the time the answer here is a resounding "no". There are lots of reasons why this may be the case, and a major one is not really believing you're going to want them...so why think about it?
As you leave us after your portrait session, we'll recommend that, before you come back to view, you have a think about how to have your portraits. "Imagine," Robin will say "what you're going to do if you see 20 images you like". And you'll laugh, because, really, 20 images that you like? Of yourself? Ha.
Now, I will admit that it is something of a failing on my part if I have, despite much reassurance, failed to convince you that you are going to love your portraits. But sometimes, it's not until you see them that you really understand just how fabulous you are. It's just how it is.
If you can dare, for a moment, to consider that you're going to have beautiful portraits to choose from that you'll want to take home and look at forever - here's what you need to think about.
How to have your portraits - digitally
You can have your portraits as a gorgeous slideshow, set to music. It's a great option, because you don't have to do any narrowing down - you're getting all of them.
However, if you think a smart tv is one that happens to look really nice, only getting your images digitally may not be your best option.
If you're tactile, and like things to touch, hold in your hand, put on your wall, a USB stick might not be your best option.
How to have your portraits - for the wall
If you've got a big space above your bed you're just aching to fill with a piece of artwork - go ahead and measure up and we can have something made bespoke for you to fill it.
If, on the other hand, you have a seemingly endless stream of teenagers roaming through your house, and your bedroom is not quite as personal as you wished it was, have a really good think about whether wall art is what you want to take home from your session.
How to have your portraits - the best of both worlds
If you think you don't have any space, never mind the right wall space now, but you know that's going to change in the future, consider the mix a portfolio of images gives you.
This way, you'll be getting an album-like presentation box of images, but also the digital files. This way, if you do change your mind about how you'd like to have your images in the future, you've given yourself ultimate flexibility.
I'll show you all of the different options, and get you thinking about what you'd really like to have from your session, when you come along for your chat beforehand.
