Photoshoots: On average, a studio session takes about 1 hour. Some children are quick to embrace the character, but others need a bit more time to warm up. A little actor’s job is super exciting but also needs some concentration and that can be tiring. So, how long it takes all depends on the age and personality of the children.
Before the shoot, we will discuss which child would enjoy which characters most. If you only have one lucky child,
they can play two roles and/or their brilliant parents can play the other role (in fact, pirate kids seem to love sending their parents down the plank!). We also have some beautiful illustrations that can be used instead.
We'll guide you through the whole story and encourage your kids to act out each of the different scenes with the provided props and character accessories. All they need on the day are some comfortable clothes that can be transformed into their favourite characters: pirates can wear shorts and go barefoot and Red Riding Hood can wear her favourite dress.
Editing: After the photoshoot the best photos are selected and the editing begins. Any minor imperfections are smoothed, the background is cut away and finally, the photo is placed into the unique storybook pages which have been
exclusively hand-illustrated by the graphic design artist, Anastasiia Nikitina.
Printing: Once the pages have been carefully edited they begin their joutney to print using Albelli's hardcover premium lay-flat books. The whole process from shoot to delivery takes an average of 4 weeks. Then you can sit back with your little ones and enjoy the lasting memory of stunning photography inside their own beautifully illustrated storybook.
