Our Family Home sessions are fabulous for families who absolutely adore their home. Your home becomes the backdrop of your images – yes, that means a bit of a tidy up is required, but it also means that you get to celebrate your home and really capture this time in your lives.
Family Home sessions are also ideal for families with kiddos who would feel more comfortable in their homes.
What type of sessions are best held here?
Family Home sessions are ideal for any of our sessions. Your home becomes the backdrop of images, so it’s important to note that a quick tidy up is required and a love of your home and property is a must.
How early should I book?
We only offer certain days during the week for our Family Homes sessions so booking as early as possible is always best. School holidays book up very quickly.
Do you bring a ‘studio’ with you?
No. Your home becomes the studio. We don’t bring backdrops or newborn posing pillows. We use your home as the backdrop – your main bedroom, lounge room and property is celebrated. When deciding that a Family Home session is for you, it helps if your home has reasonable amounts of natural light.
Who can attend?
Family Home sessions are ideal for the immediate family. Extended family is welcome also, but it depends on the size of your home.
Do you charge a travel fee?
We only charge a travel fee for Family Home sessions greater than approximately 20-30 minutes drive from our Edwardstown Studio. Most of the time the travel fee can be applied as ‘credit’ towards your order.
For homes in regional areas, travel fee can be discussed, unfortunately we can’t travel extreme distances.
What do we wear?
We recommend plain and simple clothing, taking inspiration from the colours in your home. Textures work beautifully – knits and scarves and cardigans. In Summer, gorgeous dresses, hats and chinos are perfection.
We have a gorgeous selection of dresses in our studio wardrobe and you are welcome to choose from anything in our range, and we can bring it along.
Plain and simple works best, anything that you feel fabulous in. For partners, anything co-ordinating with you is perfect – keep it simple and steer clear of any large checks, spots, stripes or logos. If in doubt, just get in touch and we can help co-ordinate the whole family if you need.
Should I have my hair and make up done?
This is completely up to you, however we do find that mumma’s who invest a little bit in themselves, feel just that little bit more fabulous in front of the camera. And how you feel is what it’s all about at the end of the day!
So if it’s a good excuse to find 45 minutes to escape to be pampered, then go for it!
How much are Family Home sessions?
All our sessions are $285.
This covers your photographer’s time and talent capturing your gorgeous images, and an in studio Design and Ordering Appointment. Your session also includes one 8×10″ matted art print of your choice. (the session fee does not include digital files, these are available to purchase)
You can then choose to order additional prints and products, including digital files, from our Studio Catalogue. We go through this in detail at your Design and Ordering Appointment, however to give you a rough idea, most of our families spend around $2000.
There is no minimum spend, and no obligation to purchase. However, you WILL LOVE your images, so please make sure you discuss our pricing with your partner and all decision makers prior to booking.
