We always work from one or two good quality photos. We cant stress enough how important photos are. In an ideal world we would prefer to work with only digital cameras photos, however we understand how easy it is to snap away with a mobile or tablet these days. If you are going to use a mobile, make sure you take photos outside getting the subject close into the frame. Take a look at our Photo Tips page as clients do find it useful.
