Why Urbairns? An insight into the Urbairns experience

With so many photographers to choose from and with so many people owning their own digital cameras, you may find yourself asking "why bother hiring a photographer to take portraits for you?" If you are undecided about whether hiring a photographer is right for you, here is an insight into working with Sara Tomlin of Urbairns.

1) A genuine passion about working with young children

I am an early years teacher and have over 17 years of experience in working with young children. I am used to trying to help children relax when they first meet me and I have a lot of patience if it takes some children longer than others. Being a teacher, I have an enhanced, up-to-date DBS check for your piece of mind. Apart from that, I have a few (hundred!) nursery songs under my belt that have helped me impress many a youngster!

2) Location based

I bring the studio to you. At home this means that you can relax in familiar surroundings and maybe even put your feet up for a while whilst I take photos. In a favourite outdoor space this means that your child can run, play and have fun whilst having photos taken. We can work in your garden, local neighbourhood, woods, park, house, city, countryside, beach... you name it! In your home we will look for the best natural light and set up there. What could be more convenient?

3) Natural, timeless style

You do not want to look at your images in 10 years time and regret over-stylised images or dressing your child in the latest trends. I offer expert advice about what to wear for your photo shoot so that your images will look timeless. I limit the use of props and will capture your child in a natural way where their true personalities can shine through. Smiley faces don't always make the best photos, sometimes it is the moments between where you capture the most beautiful images. 

4) Beautiful products

I aim to provide you with art work that you can proudly display on your walls and shelves. So many people take photographs on digital cameras and hand-held devices and rarely print them. I prefer old-school, your images should be printed and displayed for all to see and I offer a range of beautiful albums, wall art and frames for you to showcase your images.

5) Effective relationships

I am always honoured to be chosen to capture your precious moments and ensure effective communication from your first contact. You will be provided with a welcome pack containing advice before the shoot about suitable locations, what to wear and what to expect on the day. A sneak peek is usually available on the day of the shoot and the remaining images ready within the week. We will usually schedule a time for me to visit you at home to show you the images. After this date you will receive an online gallery to make final image selections. Your products are shipping to you within 10 days of your selection.
