One photographic session with your children ( and of course you ). This normally will last about an hour, it can include a range of types of shot, normally based upon discussions we have prior to the shoot.  Face, head and shoulders, hands and feet details, shots with brothers and sisters or parents etc.  We try to make the shoot as enjoyable and fun as possible, as this reflects wonderfully in the images. Timing is essential especially with babies, so we will fit around feeding and sleeping to ensure your baby is happy and interested.  The same goes for older children too! We try to use natural light as this is often more flattering and looks more natural, however we can use static photographic lighting to get the best photograph but we try not to use studio flashes as this often upsets or scares younger children. We try to travel light so not to take over your house, all we need is a small area and a couple of simple props such as favourite toys to get started.     Passport Photo Sittings We are now able to offer short sittings for passport photos.  With a short 15 to 30 minute session we are able to take photos that conform to the Home Office regulations for passports.  Included in the price is 8 passport photos ready to use for passport and visas.  Although this was originally for babies who don't always like the photo booths, we also have done lots of adults as well, so if your family needs passport photos we can extend the session but reduce the cost! Studio Sitting Session For a little extra we can use a nearby studio to shoot the session, this gives much more control photographically, and is ideal for slightly older children.  With a range of backgrounds and props, we can create some wonderful imagery for you. Other Photographic Sessions Basingstoke Baby Photographer's Chris Hawkins also does other photographic work, everything from sporting events such as the Fleet Fun Run and the Bramley Iron Mum to parties, Graduation Balls and product photography for print and websites.  Just give us a call for information and access to the portfolio.     Prints After the session the images taken are checked through and put onto a password protected web page.  Only you will get the password, but you can share it with friends and family if they are interested in seeing the photographs. You will get one 12 x 8 print from the session of your choice, this is included in the session fee.  This will be posted to you within ten working days of you choosing. Additional prints can be chosen from the web page, the cost will depend on size and finish wanted. We use a professional lab to print all work, so you will get the best quality print in the style you want. Canvas or other lifestyle images You can have your favourite photo printed onto a canvas print, or high gloss.  These have proven to be very popular over the last few years, but they do take a little forethought when taking the image and not all images transfer easily to all mediums, so if your interested in something like this, let us know. We have the image of your choice printed onto high grade canvas using the latest Epson 8 colour ultra chrome inks. The image is heat sealed for UV and moisture protection and then stretched over a bespoke redwood 2 inch deep bevelled frame.  You can have the image printed with the image wrapped around the frame, or you can opt for the sides to be left white to get the large visible image. We can also have the images printed onto other surfaces such as aluminium or perspex, please talk to us about these modern alternatives. CD / DVD The images taken can be purchased on CD or DVD.  The disc included high quality jpg format and smaller versions that can be emailed to family and friends. Books Given enough images, books can be created, these are ideal for presents or as records of the year.  We can take your images and mix them with ours to produce stunning coffee table style photo books that will wow you. And that's not all, we also can print onto mugs, fridge magnets, calendars and so much more, contact us for more information.
