Most frequent questions and answers
It’s best to give us a call on 01670820081 so we can talk you through the experience, what to bring, work out the best time for you and explain where we are. You can also contact us on using our contact form or with the messanger widget in the bottom right hand corn of the website. We don’t ask for a booking fee or deposit before you book unless you want to purchase one of our Pre-Paid Portrait Sessions.
After the session we will invite you back to view your images in a few days. We initially present them as a slide show on a 70 inch screen, and then use our state of the art software to help you with the hardest part of the process – choosing your favourites. Once you have ordered and paid in full Halo Photography normally endeavour to produce your images within 15 working days. If family members are unable to attend the viewing for only £10 deposit, Halo Photography can upload the photos to our secure web site where they can also order for up to 4 weeks, directly from their own PC.
Our Family, Baby, Children and Pet Photo Shoots are normally £40 however we regularly have Photo Shoot offers available. You decide how you’d like keep your photographs; prints, canvas or digital files. We don’t hide our product prices. They start from as little as £4 and our full price list is available to view here. Unless you have chosen one of our Pre-Paid Packages you don’t decide what you’d like until you have viewed your photos and then there is no minimum spend and no obligation to buy.
Yes you can, on quiet week days or with notice however we would always advise that you book a separate appointment for your viewing. Exhausted children (from having too much fun) normally don’t let you concentrate on choosing your photos and picking your favourites often takes longer than taking the photos.
Our address is 3 Errington Street, Bebside, Blyth, Northumberland, NE24 4HP. We are outside of Blyth, not far from the large Blyth ASDA. From the A189 take the exit to the Jet Petrol Station then after the railway crossing take the 2nd left hand turn. We are the 3rd large white warehouse down that lane. If you pass the recycling centre you have gone too far.
Most orders take 2 weeks to complete, framed images can take longer. If you want an order quicker there is an option of a £10 priority service. We accept Card, Cash, Bank Transfer or Cheque but do not start to process orders until they are paid for in full.
Most of the photos are taken against a white stone wall & wood floor. For a family sitting we advise you wear something simple, possibly Jeans and T-Shirt. Anything that won’t date the photos quickly. Bright colours work well but as long as one family member doesn’t wear a track suit and another a formal suit, you can wear whatever you’re comfortable in. Most sessions also give plenty of time for at least one change of outfit.
Halo Photography’s camera room can comfortably fit 15 people for a family group. With Photoshop trickery we can sometimes accommodate more but it limits the variety we can do in a portrait session.
Our reception, toilet, viewing and makeup room are all accessed via a UPVC Frame that so far we have always been able to get a wheelchair over with assistance. Our Camera room also has a very small step to it.
Lisa & Mark normally work as a team in the studio, however if you’d prefer to just have one of us in the camera room please let us know at the time of booking.
Once you have viewed your images we will give you the option for them to be uploaded to our website. They are password protected so only you, your family and friends can see them. This is a free service and may take a couple of days before they are available.
