Frequently Asked Questions
Can I discuss our wedding with you, and the packages the you offer?
Contact us by email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will call you to go over it all in more detail.
How do I schedule a portrait sitting?
Contact us by email email@example.com We will then get in touch with you to arrange a time suitable.
Where will the sitting take place?
TudorMillington is dedicated to making your professional sitting as easy and hassle-free as possible. To that end, we are happy to conduct your sitting at your home, at a park, indoors or outdoors.Do you charge for travelling?
For weddings and portraits there is no additional cost within a 100 mile radius of Ringwood, Hampshire, further than this then there is a small transport cost. For events and commercial photography there is a fee that varies dependant on your requirements, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a quote.
What should I wear?
The basic rule of thumb is comfort. If your clothes are comfortable, you will be comfortable. While there is no such thing as "good" or "bad" colours, there are some general guidelines:
- Choose colours and styles that you like. If you're not sure what looks good on you, ask an honest friend.
- Avoid busy fabrics or wild patterns.
- Try to avoid choosing one-colour outfits. For example, no black shirt-black trouser combinations.
- For group photos, select at least one colour in each outfit that is the same. Remember that you'll all appear in the same finished portrait so avoid polka dots and stripes standing next to each other.
How much space do I need for the studio?
The studio takes up 10'x8' space and is suited for up to 4 subjects in any one photo.
How many people can be in the sitting?
As many as you'd like! For that matter, it doesn't have to just be people. Bring the family pet! We do ask, however, that you let us know ahead of time how many people, what type of pet, and whether or not there will be any unusual subjects. This will help our photographer be fully prepared for the session, and may have an impact on indoor or outdoor location.
How can I best prepare for the sitting?
This depends on who is being photographed.
If they're well rested, fed, and in a new nappy, chances are you'll have a successful sitting!
If you're the parent of a toddler, you know that the answer to this varies by the minute! Our experience is that mid-morning or just after a nap generally works well. Make sure to bring plenty of snacks (the type that don't soil an outfit) and a sense of humour. If you're relaxed about the experience, chances are you're toddler will respond.
Our photographers are specially trained to work with small children. Allow the photographers to work their magic. For parents that stay in the background, beautiful pictures are generally the reward!
Pre-school to school age
If you've survived photographing you're toddler, this age group will be a breeze. Explain in simple terms what will happen during the sitting and from there, just make sure they're well-groomed.
Once you've prepared the subjects, it's important that you're prepared as well. Think about the end result first. Would you like formal pictures or informal? This will help you to decide on an indoor or outdoor photograph and what your family will be wearing.
For most families, gathering the whole family together can be something of a Herculean task. Make it count by thinking through what combination of subjects are most important. Perhaps a picture of dad with all the kids to be given as a future Father's Day gift. Maybe the women in your family would like a photograph of three generations of mothers and daughters. Once the sitting gets underway, time moves quickly. We encourage parents to plan ahead of time for those combinations they'll want and to share this information with the photographer prior to the sitting.
Finally, remember to prioritize your ideas. Keep a list of the most important shots so you'll have them completed first. This ensures everyone is fresh for the most important pictures and that nothing is left to chance.
What time of day is best?
This depends on the subjects. Pick a time what works for your family's schedule. Try to find time when neither you or your kids will be rushed.
If you've got small children, try to choose a time when they'll be their best. For toddlers, that often means mid-morning or just after their afternoon nap.
How long will the sitting take?
A typical sitting lasts one hour, although many sittings can be completed in 45 minutes. We are specially trained to work with children and rarely keep little ones sitting for long, although if there are problems we can easily stop for a break and come back to photos after 5-10 minutes. The sittings are worked around you, we want to avoid any pressure of time, the sitting is about you and the kids. Please allow 45 minutes either side of the sitting to allow for setting up the studio and packing it down.
How do I order prints?
For weddings, portraits and commercial photography- After the sitting is completed, we arrange to come out to you at a time convenient with you to go over the finished edited prints. Once you have determined what photographs you like, we will assist you in filling out an order form. From there, we will print your order and your final prints will be mailed to your home.
