Portraits are taken at our studio in Kaushik Bathia Photography Middlesex though they can also be shot at a particular locale. Kaushik’s portrait service includes an pre-session consultation on the type of portrait desired with reference to our extensive portfolio. Individuals and groups are advised on the type and colours of clothes to wear to achieve the desired look and style of portrait
After the photo session, you will be invited back to the studio to preview the photos and shortlist those of your choice that you would like to have enlarged and framed, if you so wish.

Beautiful portraits don’t just happen, they are planned. You will be photographed
in an artistic and flattering way that will add a dimension of luxury to your portraits.
We cannot accomplish this, however, without your help. So please take a few moments
to look over the following suggestions to see how you may participate in the planning
of your very special personalised piece of art.
You are encouraged to bring examples of the type of pictures that you like.
Please discuss any questions, ideas or suggestions you may have to get the most
out of your session.
When you arrive.
You will be shown where to park your car. Metered parking in front of the studio, free at
weekends and after6:30pm
Once you are ready you will be introduced to your photographer.You will have the opportunity
to discus the type of images that you have in mind. You will be helped to decide which clothes
work best and what to do to ensure you get the best from your session in the studio.
You do not have to worry about your appearance, remember, just relax and enjoy a truly rewarding experience.
Viewing. You will be invited back to see your stunning photographs projected on a 60inch on wall
Once you see the fantastic pictures you will want to purchase some or all of them as a
memento, of course there is no obligation, but you will be tempted.
Dress. This is your chance to be a make a statement, remember this is your session.
Wear something that you feel great in, it doesn’t have to be new. Don’t be afraid to use
your imagination, glamourous , casual or funky, arrive in a fun mood .
Please try to co-ordinate colours and styles of dress, when there are several people
in a group avoid mixing formal with casual. If possible choose a theme and stick to it,
e.g. for formal portraits dark suits or dark trousers and jackets work well,
for a casual look denim & white always works well OR White & Black works well
We suggest that you bring with you:
That special dress, “ little black numbers” are particularly suitable.
Evening wear or ball gown or traditional wear.
Blouses, tops, denim or leather jackets, clubbing or party outfits.
Jeans & white shirts are particularly effective for that casual look.
Your favourite jewellery, scarves, hats or crazy gear. Don't forget nail varnish.
Outfits don’t have to be new, as long as they look good and you feel great in them.
The photographs are mostly half-length shots, but bring some shoes for full length shots .
For those conscious of their arms longer sleeves maybe more flattering
For the gentlemen, dark suits or dark trousers and jackets work well for a formal look.
Denim and white works well for a casual look,
White can be replaced by other solid colours, but remember uniformity is the key.
Solid colours are good for young children, pastels or white for babies.
Babies are usually best photographed in bare feet.
Remember, always coordinate style and colours when there are several people in a group
