What age would you recommend for a portfolio shoot?
The youngest we advise is 6 years old for this type of photoshoot. We do offer different photoshoots for younger children, but we wouldn't recommend one of our portfolio packages.
Will I need a chaperone?
If you are under the age of sixteen then we require a chaperone or guardian present at all times on a portfolio photoshoot.
If you are aged between 16-18 and wish to attend the shoot without a chaperone, then please contact us with details and we will make sure the shoot is booked on a slot where Sophie (the second half of FP Photography and photo editor) can act in the third party as a chaperone on the shoot.
If you are aged 18+ then you do not need to bring a chaperone, although if you would like to bring one along to the shoot you are more than welcome to do so.
Both myself and Sophie are fully DBS checked and being parents ourselves we take the issue of child safeguarding very seriously. If you wish for your photos not to be uploaded to social media, or for us to not tag yourself or your child, please just discuss with us in advance and we will be happy to oblige.
As you will see by our social media platforms and our website galleries, we often shoot portfolios for clients who are 18+ where they may shoot implied nude or in underwear. This can sometimes lead to a negative stereotype for some people. If you have any doubts about the safety of shooting with us, we would encourage you to contact us to discuss, or where possible contact any of our past clients you may know. We can assure you we have 100% customer satisfaction and that those clients shoot with us because they trust us and very often become returning customers.
We will always encourage our under 18 clients to bring age-appropriate clothing with them and should we feel an outfit goes past the boundaries of what we think is appropriate, then we will politely say so and not shoot that look. If you wish to discuss any of these points in advance of the shoot don't hesitate to contact us.
Our portfolio shoots have always been our most popular packages. They are a unique offering in the Scarborough area, a photoshoot tailored to the individual and where the shoot is as big a part of the experience as receiving the end result.
Who Would Benefit From a Portfolio Shoot?
