Cropping heads and the careful placement of thumbs over lenses are two ways of obscuring less favoured family members from photo portraits.
Charming as the amateur approach may be, there are times when a professional photo shoot can pay dividends.
Family photo shoot
This Christmas Big Deal on a family or child photo shoot at the Shutterbug studio is the best way to capture fantastic images of your nearest and dearest.
A brilliant Christmas gift for your family or for a friend, this offer is for an hour long photo shoot at the Shutterbug studio on Goosedubbs in Glasgow city centre.
For years to come, voucher holders will have a beautiful picture of their family or children to treasure.
A member of the Master Photographers’ Association, the Shutterbug studio is based on the cobbles of Goosedubbs Lane, right in the heart of the city centre and only two minutes from St Enoch’s and King St Car Parks.
The studio is owned and run by Julie Chalk, a photographer for over 20 years and a specialist in baby, child and family photography.
With a wealth of experience in taking great, natural-looking photos, Julie will put you and yours both at ease and in the picture.
Hour long session
Available Monday to Friday, the offer is for up to six people to have an hour long photo shoot at Shutterbug.
You can choose to have a family shoot or pictures taken of your children or baby. You are welcome to bring a change of outfit.
For many people, pets are a part of the family and, for a £20 supplement, pets can be included in the shoot with prior arrangement.
The proofs from the shoot will then be received via email within seven days. From them, you will choose one image to be presented to you as an eight by six inch print along with eight wallet-sized (4”x2.5”) images.
There is also the option to upgrade at the studio to ten high resolution images on CD. Copyright free, this will allow you to print your images as large and as often as you like.
The cost of the upgrade is £120. Alternatively, you could upgrade to other formats and enjoy a 10% discount on the regular studio price list.
The Facebook page for Shutterbug has no shortage of glowing testimonials from people who have had their photograph taken by Julie. This is a recent one:
‘Julie, we had a great time yesterday, you made it so relaxed. Rory wants to know when he can come back. Going to try and decide on photos tonight. They are all fab. Thxs.’
This offer with Shutterbug would make a great gift for your own family or others. We’ve also found it a popular choice for grandparents who want to gently nudge their sons and daughters into getting a family portrait done.
