Please read below how I may use your data with your consent.





During our first communication via this site's contact form I will collect the details you give me in my email software in order to communicate with you.




During our communication and in setting up your shoot I create a folder in my email software with your name and the date of your shoot. In setting up your session I will most likely receive your name, email address, phone number and other details – these email correspondences are kept in your folder in my email software so I can find you and communicate with you easily.

After your shoot I may send follow up email/s in relation to your shoot, online gallery, receiving your photos, and any further products you may purchase from me.

After your shoot I keep your email folder & emails connected with your shoot in my archives. I clear client details (if I haven't worked with you for some time) from my email archives every 6 years.




Your contact details may also be kept in my phone so I can contact you during the time we are working together.

I don't have a formal delete date but I am mindful to delete clients that I haven't worked with for some time after a year.




Once you've booked your shoot I create a folder on an external hard drive that is named with your name and the date of your shoot. I keep all of the digital images from your shoot in this folder. The external hard drives are stored in my home office and are only accessed by me.




I may upload a wide selection of your digital images to a password protected online gallery using The Image File for you to view and download your images. All of the images in this gallery are private (unless you choose to share your password).




In running my photography business I may use photographs taken during your shoot that may be identified as you as part of my online and print portfolios. This includes my website, social media accounts and print brochures, leaflets, business card and other printed products. I may store photos from your shoot that may be identifiable as you as an example to show to potential client

I currently print images through The Print Space and One Vision – both in the UK and compliant with GDPR and business materials through Moo.




I may use images that may be identifiable as you, and details that may identify you, on the Lucy Williams Photography website and/or blog




I may use photos from your shoot that may be identifiable as you in my social media portfolios.
