Choosing to hire a professional photographer ensures you have beautiful portraits you LOVE that will be cherished by future generations.
Marking family milestones, celebrating achievements and creating memories that not only look great, but connect with the viewer at an emotional level is why we love being family photographers.
So why choose a professional photographer?
1. Beautiful Outdoor Family Portraits
Creating gorgeous portraits outdoors for your family requires a skillful balance of ambient natural light and our fabulous Profoto location lighting. Notice how the sun is picking out all the detail in their surroundings whilst the location flash lighting is brightening their faces and eyes.
2. Gorgeous Newborn Photographs
Michelle has been trained by two of the leading newborn photographers in the world. Her style is a combination of natural soft tones and textures with a 'less is more' approach. Safety and comfort is our top priority during your newborn photoshoot. Our studio is heated and has everything we'll need to hand. Posing newborns is a skill that requires training, practice and lots of patience for fabulous results.
3. Enchanting Maternity Portraits.
There is so much to love about Maternity Photography. This is such a special time for you and your partner. Our soft and dreamy Maternity Photoshoots capture the love you have for your baby before he/she is born. Subtle studio lighting catches the perfect shape of your bump, artful posing creates emotion and professional editing ensures beautiful skin, in it's tone and texture.
4. Adorable Black and White Newborn Photographs
We love the connection these parents have with their newborn. Beautiful soft lighting and wonderful posing draws you right in and shows how much they cherish their baby girl. We don't hit the 'black and white' button. Professional editing ensures that we retain the beautiful contrast, while eliminating harsh unflattering shadows.
5. Custom Portrait Sessions
How would you love to be photographed? Every family photoshoot begins with a pre-session consultation. This is where we get to know you before your photoshoot. We talk about the style of photography you love and offer advice about what to wear and how to prepare for your photoshoot. We'll keep in touch and on photoshoot day you'll be able to enjoy the experience, relax and have fun with us.
6. Amazing portraits take time
Our professional photography studio offers a fabulous service to all our customers. We love getting to know you and learning about your family. We are a boutique studio which means that our sessions are never rushed, they are a wonderful experience for your family to share and enjoy. Having amazing portraits you love means we delivered on our promise. Every family deserves beautiful photographs to treasure.
7. Professional Studio, Profoto Lighting and Canon Cameras and Lenses
We are so lucky to have been able to build our own Professional Photography Studio right in our back garden in Tadley, Hampshire. Working from home and being around for our children is really important to us. We have invested in top level Canon Cameras and Profoto Lighting. Our studio is fully mobile and we enjoy taking our lighting on location for photoshoots in your home, in the countryside or a favourite venue and we even take on a few high profile weddings a year.
8. Teenagers LOVE our photoshoots
Charlie loves editing your images and is highly skilled in both Lightroom and Photoshop editing software. As a high end boutique photography studio we pride ourselves in producing the very highest quality images and it means that we take care of the little things. You'll probably never notice the pimples that have vanished, the scratch on your hand from the cat that disappeared, the bags under your eyes that are lighter or the label poking out from your top that just isn't there. We did, and removed them for you before your viewing appointment. We won't ever make your skin look plastic or make you 8 stone lighter, but with professional lighting, skilled posing and fabulous editing skills it's amazing what can be responsibly achieved.
9. Professional Training and Expertise
Our love of Photography has been lifelong and born out of a passion to be creative and explore sharing emotion through, photographs that you love to return to time and time again. Silverlock Photography Ltd is the company which all our brands operate under. We also have YouDeserveThis Makeover and Photoshoot Studio, YouDeserveThis Wedding and YouDeserveThis Blog (both are undergoing rebranding and coming soon).
We have invested £1000's in training and continue to update this regularly as new software, equipment and styles of photography change. Never wanting to be caught in a timewarp you'll read about us getting excited about a new Photoshop technique, new props, backdrops and equipment.
Charlie is highly a skilled editor and we can tell stories about before and afters of images you would be amazed at. In addition to Lightroom and Photoshop, Charlie also edits video using Final Cut X, Adobe Premier and creates his own Photoshop Actions.
We love meeting new families and every photoshoot teaches us a little something that we can use to further improve our service to you.
10. Premium Print and Digital Products
We are perfectionists, you may have guessed and the quality of our prints is extremely important to us, last year we made the decision to bring our printing in house and have a professional level Canon Pro - 1 printer. This enables us to ensure consistent fabulous prints for all our customers. We mount and matt our prints for our increasingly popular Folio Keepsake Boxes on site and this means that we are able to give you excellent service and turn around times.
So that's our 10 reasons to book a photoshoot with us at our friendly and professional studio in Hampshire.
