Baby, Toddler and Family Location Shoots with Roy Strutt

Roy Strutt has recently joined the UK Model Folios family to specialise in extravagant portraiture for babies, toddlers and families. A specialist in wedding photography, Roy discovered his love for location shooting with families during ceremonies and wedding receptions. He loves the thrill of seeing a parent’s face after he captures the love between them and their child- it really is something quite special.

UK Model Folios offer studio shoots, which are great for starting a baby/ toddler portfolio i.e. for clean background shots etc, however as a more bespoke service for those families wanting something a little different and more memorable we are now offering location shoots, specifically shot in either your own or Roy’s luxurious Essex home. We find the pictures produced in a familiar and relaxing atmosphere where a child can play normally with toys or pet their animals, are the best.

On Friday 17th, Roy shot my two year old nephew Frankie-James. Teething, just woken up and a little disorientated I witnessed first-hand how little people can be far more unreliable when it comes to adjusting to the camera straightaway, however thanks to Roy’s calming, patient and kind nature, offering Frankie lots of toys and animals to play with he gradually came out of his shell and we were able to capture some of the following beautiful and truly memorable shots for my families walls.

Hi Emma! How are you today?

I’m very good, thank you 🙂

How did you come across UK Model Folios?

I come across UK Model Folios through their Facebook and Twitter pages.

Which photographer did you choose and why?

At first I couldn’t decide which photographer that I wanted to shoot with (they’re all so good!) but after looking at some of their work I felt that Damien Morley had the edge and the kind of creative signature that I wanted to use to create my portfolio.

How easy was it to book a shoot with UK Model Folios?

I found it very easy. Once I filled out the form on their website it all come together really quickly! I found the service very professional and everyone was so friendly and helpful.

Did you find the UK Model Folios team friendly and approachable?

Yes! I found everyone lovely and really felt like the UK Model Folios team wanted to help you out with their professional backgrounds and amazing work.

What were your main reasons for wanting some professional photos taken?

The reason that I approached UK Model Folios and wanted to have some professional photos done was because its something that I have been wanting to do for ages now. I really wanted to have the experience and also put myself out there and maybe try out modelling for myself.

What was your favourite thing about your shoot with Damien Morley and why?

Ohh now this is hard because I found the whole day just an amazing experience but, if I had to choose then I  would definitely say it was the shoot itself as it was such good fun and a real laugh over all. Also it was nice to be the centre of attention for the day and to be treated so nicely. I really hope to have many more opportunities like this in the future.

Why would you recommend UK Model Folios to other aspiring models?

I would recommend UK Model Folios to everyone because the company is so safe and reliable. Also because it’s extremely professional and you know you’ll get exactly what you want out of the experience.

What was included in your package with UKMF?

The package I chose was a shoot with Damien Morley to include a hair and make-up artist and five retouched images.

What attracted you to this specific package?

I think it was worth its money and was an excellent price overall for what I wanted out of the day.

Which was your favourite outfit and why?

This is a hard one because I loved all of the outfits! However, if I had to choose one then my favourite outfit would have to be the lingerie sets as I felt really confident in myself, not only that but I felt really laid back and bearing in mind that this was something that I’d never ever done before I was pleasantly surprised! I felt very sexy in myself and felt more confident with less on!

Why do you feel that you got excellent value for money?

I found UK Model Folios excellent value for money as the whole experience is definitely worth your while and you know that you’re not wasting your time or money.

Why will you be coming back to UK Model Folios when you need your portfolio updated?

I will definitely be coming back because it was all I could ask for and more to create my first professional portfolio and the pictures were just amazing, I’m just so pleased with it all.

Lastly, why do you feel it’s important for young women like yourself to have a reliable portfolio agency like UK Model Folios?

I feel its it important to have reliable agency to help young women like myself because the UK Model Folios team listen to you and make sure that you get exactly what you want for your money. Also UK Model Folios are extremely professional and want the best for you unlike other companies who may exploit you for money.
