Frequently Asked Questions


All the info you need about your Family Portrait Session

What is your style?

Coming from an Art & Design background, I have a huge appreciation for creative & artistic images. I aim to capture the personality of my subjects & provide images that are full of emotion & that will look beautiful displayed in bespoke hand crafted frames or art books. Your photography session will contain a mix of natural, documentary style images together with more posed & directed photographs. I find this helps to convey personality, character & help 'tell the story' of your session. Those images are then edited to the highest standard.

Are you insured?

Absolutely, as any professional photographer should be. I have full public liability & professional indemnity insurance.

What products does the family portrait session include?
Your family portrait investment is for up to 5 people (extra people are charged at £10pp) & includes all of your high resolution digital images on a presentation USB, together with a 10x8" Portfolio Box contains 5 gorgeous mounted prints from your session. Any pre-meetings & telephone chats needed to discuss your ideas for themes, locations etc. It includes my expertise & creative vision on your actual shoot & then my time & expertise to artistically edit your images to the highest standards. It also includes your viewing session, where I will visit your home & you get to see your stunning images in a DVD slideshow presentation which is also yours to keep. You also get an online secure password-protected gallery where you can view & share your images with family & friends - they can even purchase products too from this.
What is discussed before my photo session?

Whatever photography session you have chosen, I always discuss any creative ideas you have. I see your experience as a collaboration & will encourage you to talk about any styles you have seen in magazines or on television. Any really cool or beautiful locations that you have always fancied being photographed in - maybe you have a favourite place or park? We can meet for a chat over a coffee or discuss ideas over the telephone - either way I promise you will feel energised & totally excited about your photo experience.

Where does the photo session take place?

As well as covering the Birmingham, Warwickshire & West Midlands I travel all around the UK (travel fees may apply). Depending on your chosen photography session, they can take place either in a cool Urban environment, a beautiful park or nature reserve, family shoots can even take place as I accompany you on a day out to the Zoo or seaside. A relaxed environment means that you enjoy your fantastic photo experience & I get to document that with quality photography. Home shoots are also very popular, where I can set up a simple studio using a variety of backgrounds & lighting techniques, resulting in modern & artistic portraits.

What time of day is best for my location photo session?

We can shoot at any time of day to suit your schedule, but during the Spring & Summer months earlier in the morning or later in the day are preferable. That golden sunlight can be a wonderful backdrop, resulting in beautiful portraiture.

How long does a portrait session take?

Usually around 2 hours is enough time to help you relax & for us to capture a variety of stunning images. However I do not carry a stopwatch, so if the light suddenly changes or we spot a really great location then we shoot some more.

I really love black & white images - can we have some of those too?

Absolutely. When your final edited images are presented to you, there will be a mix of both colour & black & white. I use my creativity to decide which images will be converted & we will usually discuss this on the actual shoot. I tend to 'see' what will make a striking & creative black & white image & I will tell you.

When do I need to pay & what if I cancel?

A £100 deposit is required at the time of booking & 48 hours is required to re-arrange your session or to cancel. Unfortunately last minute cancellations or cancellations on the day of the session will mean your deposit payment will not be refunded.

Can we print our own photographs from the digital images?

Absolutely! Your digital images come with a print licence.

Do you sell individual prints from my session?

Yes, individual print sizes are available to purchase. These are printed at a professional photographic lab, come delivered in a wallet & are high quality - ideal for gifts.

Can I have some images to put on my Facebook page?

I know that you will be so excited by your stunning images that you will want to share them with your Facebook friends, so a selection of watermarked low resolution images will be uploaded to the Adrian Jones Photography Facebook page. Feel free to tag yourself & to share these images with your family & friends. (Business Headshots & Urban Location Portrait sessions include web-ready versions of your chosen images)

I recommended you & your excellent customer service to lots of my friends - will I be rewarded?

Absolutely. I am always honoured & proud when my clients love their images so much they tell all of their family & friends about me. If they book a session, I will give you a 10x8 inch print of an image from your own session to say thank you.

I love your work - how do I get in touch?
