Your Experience

At PaulAnthonyWilliams Photography we offer a very personal service and a passion for image making that dares to be different!

We aim to make every photo-experience fun, simple and above all memorable delivering creative images for all our clients that really do stand-out and capture the very best in children’s and family portraiture.

Children’s and family photography

Following your initial contact, I will be in touch to discuss how the photo-shoot experience will work best for you and your specific needs. We will discuss timings, locations, what’s best to wear and any other details and tips to help you through the process and to make the most of our time together.

Locations vary however most clients prefer to have their photo-shoot taken at home or at agreed location such as a park. Alternatively you can visit my house which is in a beautiful village location and has a big garden!

I’m  always keen to keep everything as simple, relaxed and professional through each stage of the experience. Depending on the client’s needs I often meet the family before their shoot which I find helps break the ice and allows us to discuss details such as…locations, styling- what to wear, timings, and for me to answer your questions and to share some top tips!

Being a creative person I am always in touch with the latest fashion and editorial trends in photography and artistic image making. You can see examples of my photographic style where I embrace new approaches be it lighting, background choices, alternative poses and shooting styles that deliver something different yet still captures the subject’s personality.

On the day of your photo-shoot

I like to avoid the harsh midday sun so depending on the light we will shoot either in the morning, afternoon or early evening light which is so much more flattering to photograph in.

I work fast however there will be plenty of  time for breaks and outfit changes! If it is raining, not to worry as we’ll still get some great photographs indoors. We can also discuss if you would like to postpone part of your shoot for when the weather improves and we can return outdoors.

Most shoots start indoors using both studio lights and also window light which gives a very different natural effect. Its important that everyone is comfortable, and embrace the experience so its part of my job to direct all my clients young and old so that they look their very best in front of the camera!

I like to keep things relaxed and above all fun! It is important that everyone gets involved to support each other and make the most of our time together. Mums & Dads are usually the most shy so I tend to start with the younger subjects’ then work my way up! I often turn parents & siblings into photographer’s assistants during the shoot and they are also at hand to help get the most out of the experience resulting in getting as many  fabulous pictures as possible.

After your photo-shoot

Usually a week after your photo-shoot, I will contact you with an invitation to view your images at home via your own online gallery page which contains the edited digital darkroom images processed from your photo-shoot.

Your personal online gallery facility enables clients to complete the selection process in the comfort of your own home where everyone can choose their favourites from a variety of images including fabulous family group shots and plenty of natural portraits. You can also invite friends and family to view the images by forwarding them the link provided for your gallery page.
