Top Tips For Your Day
We know you’ll want to look your best but please remember that we’re located inside the main Trade Secret warehouse, which is usually pretty cold! We have plenty of heaters in the studio but it’s a good idea to pack an extra layer or two for before and after your shoot.
Although we have plenty of free parking available, our car park is gravel and get can quite wet and muddy so your shoes will almost definitely get dirty on your way into the warehouse so please don’t wear any good or expensive shoes!
When you arrive, head straight into the warehouse and there will usually be a member of Trade Secret staff waiting to greet you and direct you through to the studio.
If they’ve popped off to help somebody then just continue through to the main warehouse – which will be on your right – and you should be able to see the studio straight ahead of you. If not, don’t panic, there are always lots of staff around to help!
It’s a good idea to use the toilet before your session, as it’s quite a walk from the studio – especially if you have little ones with you! – when you enter the warehouse the toilets are immediately on your left. Please remember to mind the step down!
You’ll need to bring a few different outfit choices with you and it’s also a good idea to bring along at least one toy or other prop that we can use to engage with your children and make them laugh. Please do remember though that once in the studio everyone will need to remove their shoes and socks in order to avoid dirt getting on the floor and all over your clothes. If you have any issues or concerns about this then please get in touch with us as soon as possible to let us know.
Our studio does have a set of speakers that are able to connect to your devices through a usb or aux cable and so if there are any specific songs you’d like to listen to throughout your session then please bring these along with you on your device!
We think the most important thing to remember though is not to get too stressed! Our photographer – Abi – has two young boys and fully appreciates that kids aren’t always in the right mood!
It doesn’t matter if your children are frowning, crying or laughing, we promise we’ll capture some beautiful images so just remember to have fun!
