Renata Kate Photography is a unique portrait design studio specialising in custom fine art maternity, newborn, baby and family pictures, located in Maghull – Liverpool. My portraits are classically inspired with a timeless quality to them. My main objective in every photographic session is to create images of your child and your family that you will love – because your family is everything. I am a perfectionist and passionate about creating beautiful, simple images of children. Just have a look below or at my Portfolio.
SO WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU BOOK A SESSION WITH RENATA?
We begin with the end in mind. Before we shoot any images, we need a plan for how they will be displayed in your home.
Creating a plan and shooting for that plan results in a product that will match your style and so you’ll proudly display for many years to come.
The entire portrait process takes place in several different stages:
THE PORTRAIT PROCESS:
THE ORDERING APPOINTMENT
YOUR LONG-TERM PLAN
1) THE PRE-SESSION CONSULTATION
I believe that great portraits begin with a great relationship. So, I first send you a Welcome Guide full of information that helps you get to know me and my workflow as well as to prepare for the session. From what to wear, to what to expect. Then, I email you a short pre-session questionnaire that helps me get to know your family and learn your goals for the session! ALL your answers are therefore important. What final result are we shooting for? How images will be displayed, colour design, location planning and look and feel of the session. Tell me about your home and your vision and I’ll add in my creativity to make it happen. Your shoot is carefully planned and fully designed.
2) SHOOTS AT THE STUDIO OR ON-LOCATION
Shoots can be somewhat stressful for families. From wondering if the kids will behave, to agonizing over what to wear and convincing dad that it won’t be “that bad.” It may have been challenging for you in the past or you simply have never had a professional shoot before. Sessions with Renata are anything but stressful – they are fun, positive and relaxed. With over 10 years of experience and great patience with kids, Renata can handle it all. On top of that, when you work with Renata, you will know exactly what will happen, so you’ll feel confident all the way.
Shoots take place in a designed home studio in Maghull, Liverpool. I work with both natural light and controlled studio lighting and a plethora of simple props and set designs. The studio offers a stylish and relaxed homely environment where I create a look that is simple yet sophisticated no matter what the weather.
Maternity, family or children sessions can take place either in studio or outside! Sessions at one of local scenic spots can result in some amazing and unique images, especially if the location is special to you. So consider carefully where you’d like to have your session, or I can recommend a spot for you. I am to make the session an amazing experience, from start to finish. I pride myself on exceptional customer service and a commitment to each family in order to create unique art for their home.
3) THE ORDERING APPOINTMENT
The Viewing & Ordering Appointment is the time when you get to see all the fruits of the session pay off. Your images are projected onto a large TV screen and we take the time to design the right art piece for your home. I’ll help you sort through the images and make final decisions on what will look best with your decor. We’ll show you actual size and pair images together for a stunning album or wall gallery. Specialising in wall series and heirloom albums, some of the products offered are one-of-a-kind. All of them are sure to get you excited and spoil you for choice and quality.
4) DELIVERY & INSTALLATION
About 3-4 weeks later, your art piece will be ready for pick up. You’ll receive an email or a message telling you your order is here ready for pick up. And if you cannot collect it yourself or you need help with installation, I will gladly provide someone who can help. Once those portraits are hanging, you can sit back and enjoy them EVERY DAY. For these are your precious children—the ones who are growing too fast and who you will cherish to the end of your days.
5) A LONG-TERM PLAN
And that’s not the end! My families often come back for a cake smash or with their newly born siblings. Since your children grow and change, it is a great opportunity to update your portraits. So right from the start we plan, knowing that more may come. And we design around that! The next time you work with me, I’ll create art that coordinates with previous sessions, so you can build on to what I’ve already created for you and that will work year after year. That’s what makes Renata Kate Photography unique.
