Distance Maintaining : We will maintain a safe distance

Throughout the photoshoot. We will verbally & visually be directing you with poses etc which we can do easily with our vast years of experience, however as a last resort there may be moments that we need to physically pose you or readjust a pose that will require the need to be near you, we will wear clear face shields if we do approach. Any approach would only be momentarily and only as a last resort if we cannot direct you to a pose instead . However this depends on your preference, if you feel more comfortable that we do not approach and instead continue to maintain distance then that's fine, we can do another pose verbally & visually.

* Cold or flu symptoms, DO NOT COME!

If you have or anyone has any  please contact us to reschedule free of charge

In conclusion:

Please don't worry. These precautions may seem a lot individually, but when you put them altogether, they really aren't a lot as we always clean between photoshoots etc anyway, we just use stronger stuff.


In reality we are just being a little extra careful and we will continue to strive to give you the best and fun photoshoot that many many customers have experienced from us over the years and to date.


We look forward to seeing you soon! .... Stay Safe!

Offers and Promotions can change at any time!


Offers and promotions are dictated by market forces, for example we may have to suddenly  produce offers and discounts to combat a competitor & protect our share of the market or we may be extremely busy for a period and then experience a lull, a quiet time,  this is what dictates and triggers offers, promotions, discounts etc.... this may lead to you grabbing a super offer at the time saving on our regular prices but please be aware that another promotion could follow afterwards that may not be so good as the one that you achieved or it may be followed by a superior promotion, this is just the nature of business and as stated is dictated by these market forces, this is accepted by you when booking. Either way you have saved some money off our regular prices or gained extra product than if a promotion wasn't available.

Unless otherwise stated all offers & promotions are applicable to new bookings only as that is what they are designed to do ... to attract new bookings.


Unfortunately we cannot match your own booking with any particular new offer that comes along after you have booked, though we may compensate for it being missed by maybe adding some free extra prints to your own package, this would only apply if a better offer is offered within 7 days of you making your booking and must be requested via our contact form only


No offers or promotions can be combined  together unless this is specifically stated at the the time on the offer.


For example:  if Gift Vouchers have a discount offer on, this cannot be combined with any other offer that is current, for example a discount off cake smash. You may only use one offer, either the gift vouchers or cake smash would be chargeable at full price, you cant have both discounted
