How long does it take to get the pictures?
The viewing gallery will be online one week after the photo shoot. It will remain online for at least 1 month. Photo orders are send out within two weeks.
There isn't a shoot in my area, can you arrange one?
We need at least 10 children to book to make a photo shoot worthwhile, so if you have a group of friends we may be able to set up a photo shoot for you at a pool near you. If your swim school doesn't offer photo shoots, we may be able to set one up with them. Please contact us for more details and for current prices.
Private shoots are also available but are obviously more expensive.
Where are you based?
We are based in Sheffield, but can travel to anywhere in the UK.
Do I need to be in the pool with my child?
You should treat the photo shoot like a normal swimming lesson, so you will be in the water with your child. Although the swimming teacher will position your child for you, you will need to be ready to take them back between submersions. It’s helpful to be in the water even with older children who can swim.
If you’re bringing more than one child, each child needs an adult with them.
