Petra Cracknell Photography

Petra sent me a lovely email a while back, but unfortunately I never received her email with her guest post attached (don’t you love technology when it doesn’t work!). So, this is a few weeks late, but better late than never. I love the idea of one year special package and the collage’s below are gorgeous. I wish someone had told me about these packages when I was pregnant!

Petra Cracknell Photography, based in Pamber Heath (between Newbury, Reading and Basingstoke)

My name is Petra Cracknell and I have always had a passion for photography.

I believe it came from my granddad, a very keen photographer, and the hours I have spent with him developing films in a dark room.

The times have moved on and I embraced my passion even more with the arrival of a first digital camera. I was a keen travel and documentary photographer before my children arrived and my passion has moved to portrait.

Last year, I decided to take it up professionally and set up Petra Cracknell Photography for studio and lifestyle portraits.

I am very lucky to have the space to have a studio attached to my house, so the precious little time I have with my boys is not compromised by me being away a lot.

I have a fun approach to photography and I like my clients to feel relaxed and at ease in their sessions.

Sessions, packages and price list:

NEWBORN STUDIO SESSION                                        £60

There is nothing more special than capturing those memories of your baby’s tiny features. This time passes by so quickly.

The ideal time for newborn shoot is between 5-15 days when your baby is still very sleepy. Newborn babies are unpredictable, so allow between 1.5-2.5 hours for a photo shoot (think of all the feeding, burping, nappy changing you will have to do in that time).

Newborn shoots can take place in my studio where I can offer you a selection of backdrops, backgrounds and newborn photo props (baskets, crates, newborn hats etc) or at your home using natural light (a space for backdrop stand needs to be provided near a well-lit window). I use an extra heater in my studio for newborn sessions, so your baby feels cozy and warm.

INCLUDED IN PRICE:

  • ALL IMAGES FROM THE DAY ON A CD (HIGH RESOLUTION)
  • 1-2.5 HOURS OF STUDIO TIME
  • CHOICE OF BLACK OR WHITE BACKGROUND OR 4 DIFFERENT BACKDROPS
  • GREAT CHOICE OF NEWBORN PROPS PROVIDED (WELCOME TO BRING YOUR OWN SPECIAL THINGS YOU MAY WANT TO USE IN PHOTOS)
  • 1X A4 SIZE PRINT OF YOUR CHOICE

OUTDOORS/LOCATION SESSION                                  £50

The Lifestyle location shoot is ideal for families, children, toddlers, babies, maternity or couples.

Those photo shoots are generally a bit longer than studio sessions. I will meet you in a location of your choice which can be your back garden, local park, woods or place of interest near by etc.)

One of the lenses I use for an outdoor shoot is a 70-200mm lens, which means I can stand back a bit and let your children play and get used to me in their own time whilst still getting lovely close up photos.
