'Signature Portraits' by Paul Crawford

Are you looking for a portrait photographer in Northern Ireland?

Life is full of special moments! We all take so many photos on our phones these days... but what do we do with them? Maybe flick through them occasionally! And very rarely do we get them printed and displayed!

My 'Signature Portraits' are the perfect way to remember your family's special occasions. Whether it's a family birthday, graduation, engagement, anniversary, a family reunion or just as a treat for yourself, I would be delighted to capture the memories. They also make great gifts for loved ones!

Signature Portraits

All my portrait photography packages include your favourite image professionally retouched, printed and framed in my 'Signature Portrait' style.

This is a contemporary, eye-catching design, your image appears to float in the frame, taking photo printing and framing to a whole different level. The perfect way to put your portraits in the spotlight.

The overall size of the framed portrait is 16"x12" - you have the option of upgrading to a larger size.

Available with either a matt black or white frame moulding.

Portrait Photography - How it works

Nobody likes getting their photograph taken! I want to create a stress-free and enjoyable experience for you and your family. With that in mind,  here is my step-by-step guide to my 'Signature Portrait' Photography Service...

1. Booking

All bookings for my Portrait shoots are taken online. A deposit of £50 is required at the time of booking to secure the shoot. (Balance due on the day of the viewing)

You're busy - you don't need endless telephone/email tag to arrange the shoot! (The website is linked and updated in real-time with my diary and you can book shoots up to 90 days in advance) - BOOK NOW

2. Consultation

Once I receive your booking, I will contact you to discuss the options for your photoshoot. I want to capture what makes you and your family individual! 

We can discuss the different style of photoshoots I can offer, as well as advice on location and clothing

3. Photoshoot

Your portrait session can take place at a venue that is handy for you. Either at your own home or a local beauty spot. I bring the studio to you! (No extra charge for locations within 25 miles of Ballyclare)

It takes me around 15 minutes to set up and then we have up to 60 minutes of shooting time - we can take as many shots/change of outfits as you wish.

At the end of the photoshoot, we will arrange a viewing appointment - usually 7 to 10 days after the shoot.

4. Viewing Appointment

During the viewing appointment, I will present the images taken during the shoot and you select your favourite image for full retouching, enhancement, printing and framing as your 'Signature Portrait', as well as your additional 5 digital images included in the package.

The remaining payment for the portrait package is due at this time. Payment can be made by either cash or credit/debit card.

5. Retouching

When selecting your images you can let me know of any additional retouching you would like. Nothing too radical! Just enough to make you and your family look the very best.

All retouching is carried out by a professional image retoucher and this is included in the package price

6. Delivery

Your fully finished framed 'Signature Portrait' will be delivered directly to you within 14 days of the viewing appointment.

The Digital Images you selected will then be available to download (with full printing rights) for 1 year from your private online Viewing Gallery

REMEMBER - If you don’t LOVE your pictures when you first see them during the Viewing appointment, I will refund your deposit and you walk away paying NOTHING!

Book your 'Signature Portrait' Session

All bookings and deposit payments for Portrait Photography Sessions are now taken online.
(I have set this up to save on the endless back and forth telephone calls and/or emails it takes to arrange appointments. It is linked and updated in real-time with my diary and you can book shoots up to 90 days in advance)

£50 deposit is required at time of booking with the balance due at the Viewing appointment.

I will confirm the location of your shoot by email once you complete the booking
