NI Family Photographer

Your pre-shoot phone consultation

To begin your portrait experience with Eddy Calvin Photography we will schedule a pre-shoot phone consultation with our studio manager prior to scheduling your session. These are done over the phone and only take 15-20 minutes. It is a great opportunity for you to ask questions and get a feel for what the session will be like with us.

Before scheduling this call we do ask that you have consulted with your spouse/partner so they are on board with doing a photo session. The last thing we want is a reluctant person at the session.

We do require a booking/confirmation fee to secure your booking date/time on our schedule. This fee will be generally 50% of your booking order This covers any loss of the appointment session and/or design appointment and your photographer’s time. Basically, it is our “please don’t be rude” insurance.


Your Photo Session

This is where the fun begins. During your photo session, we will take your photos and create some amazing memories for you and your family. While we have a variety of genres we photograph from dogs to families with their dogs, siblings, grandparents, family, and newborns. We always suggest bringing the whole family so we can capture everyone together.

Our photo sessions last approximately 30-45 minutes to an hour and we will do a variety of looks and poses. We will send you guidance on what to wear for your photo session and you can bring a couple of different outfits to change into during your photo session with us.

When you arrive we will go over all of the clothing and accessories you brought for your photo session and put together some amazing looks for you to have for a lifetime.

NOTE: Don’t be afraid to bring too many items…we may not use all of them but it is better to have too much than not enough when it comes to options.

Your Design Appointment

This is where we create displays from the photos we got during your photo session to put in your home. Some of our design appointments will happen on the same day of your photo session, while most of our design appointments will be during a zoom session usually 2-10 days after your session. There is no difference between the design appointments – it is really a matter of when your photo session takes place.

During the design appointment, we will show you a slideshow of your photos and allow you to re-live the moments you experienced during your session. We will then select your favorite images and begin to stylize your wall displays to suit your style and home.

All of our artwork from the award-winning labs based in the UK & comes ready for display in your home and we have a range of products to suit everyone’s style and budget. Our mat print collections start at £250. Acrylic wall art starts at £395. All of our collections can be financed with our in-house lay-a-way program or through PayPal Credit. Most families invest £995-£2500 on their photo session purchases from their session.

Your finished wall displays & albums will be delivered to you directly approximately 6-8 weeks after your design appointment (if you are paid in full). Our prints/displays are made with the highest quality products in the industry and all come with a lifetime guarantee on craftsmanship.


The portraits captured will be available shortly after your portrait shoot to view online in your own private gallery. You can then order single items if you need help deciding I can show you how your wall art will look in your own home on a wall or area of you’re choice,
