Virtual Facetime photo shoots

A photo shoot via Facetime??  It sounds crazy, but it works really well.

Here are some photos from a newborn shoot last weekend to prove it.

How it works:

We have an initial chat on Facetime to suss out the best place(s) to do your shoot depending on the time of day and light available then.

We book in a time for the actual shoot (it should only take around 30 minutes).

I Facetime you at the agreed time.

You attach your iPhone to a tripod and put it on a stable surface. If you don’t have a tripod,  a tin of beans with an elastic band on it works just as well (I’m not even joking).

Through the magic of Facetime, we go around your house and I take some lovely photos of you/ your kids/ pets/whoever you want in the photos.

The photos are saved into the photos folder on my phone and I download and edit them in Photoshop to make them even lovelier.

When they’re ready, I send you a link to download your edited photos.

What you need:

an iPhone 6 or higher (only works with iPhones sorry!)

Some good light. Ideally from a window.

You. Alone or with others (family, pets, it’s up to you…).

That’s it. Although feel free to add in any props you’d like.

What you get:

  • Some lovely photos of you and yours that you can use on social media and share with friends and family who might not have seen you throughout lockdown
  • The chance to have a photo shoot in your own home with all your lovely things around you.

How much is it?

This would normally cost £75 (£5 donated to NHS Charities Together) but as a special Father’s Day offer, but book by 30 June and get it for £55 (£5 of this goes to NHS Charities Together).
