FAQs

 

Where are you located? What area do you cover?

Our family photography studio is in Winwick Quay, Warrington, close to the M62 and M6. We cover Newton Le Willows, Earlestown, Winwick, Golborne, Ashton in Makerfield, Lowton, and Warrington areas (M6, M62, A580 East Lancs road).

 

How do I find you?

We will send you a map with the studio location details on it when you book. This will also have directions from the local motorway and a postcode so you can pop into your Sat Nav.

 

How long is a photo shoot?

A photo shoot is 30 minutes

 

How many people can attend the shoot?

The largest family shoot we have undertaken is for 7 people (5x adults and 2x children). Anything larger than this can become challenging technically and logistically for both you and us.

 

In order to get the best out of the shoot, we try to minimise the amount of distractions going on behind the camera. If you are not going to be in the shoot and are not an immediate family member, we politely ask you not to attend the session, as you will only become a distraction to the person being photographed. There is nothing worse than a beautiful pose spoilt by the person looking away from the camera at the wrong moment due to an off camera distraction!

 

How many pictures will I get?

That depends on the actual shoot on the day. We always shoot more pictures than we finally present. Variations in the number of pictures taken are caused by the number of outfit changes, how many people are attending the shoot etc. There are no hard and fast rules here.

 

Will I have to come back to view the photos after the shoot?

No. We understand that you are busy and don't have time to come back to look at pictures. You view your pictures on line via a secure site.

 

Do I have to come back to pick up my final product choice?

No. We will make arrangements to have the product delivered to you by post, courier or in person. They will be sent securely, so they don't get damaged or broken in transit. There is a charge for this and you will see this when you purchase your items.

 

Do I get the copyright to the pictures?

No, the copyright remains with us. When you buy hard copy pictures, you get the pictures only. You do not get permission to copy, scan or photograph the prints. If you want copies, we can supply these. If you want electronic copies on a CD/DVD or a download we can also supply this, for the appropriate cost.

What is Flash Free Fotos?

Using the latest lighting technology, Munchkin Photos can now offer studio quality pictures without the flash. If you don’t like flash photography or cannot medically tolerate flash, then F3™ as we like to call it, is the thing for you! F3 does still involve bright lights, but they do not flash. Please note that there are some creative restrictions with F3 over normal flash photography.
