All of our sessions include the whole family unit – BUT sometimes our family units don’t always include a newborn or a baby – they include older kiddos, grandparents, school age children, and this is where the family sessions come in.
We photograph these sessions at any of our locations – Studio, Forest & Field, Beach and Family Home.
You’ll see from the portfolio though, a lot of our families with older children choose somewhere outdoors, so they can run, play, have fun and be distracted by the fact that we our outside!
We’d love to do one of your outdoor sessions, but what about weather?
Whilst we have a hotline direct to the Weather Gods, sometimes the reception isn’t great and we get bad weather. Don’t stress, we just reschedule.
Can extended family come along?
Yes! Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Grandparents – no worries at all BUT, it does mean our time available for each family unit is far more limited. We do ask that we have just a single communication person and you are in charge of wrangling your family.
These sessions are heaps of fun, wonderfully relaxed and always a good dose of chaos.
We work during the week, can we do this on the weekend?
So sorry, we don’t work on weekends either.
However, we generally plan our outdoor sessions around the best lighting and this is usually in the afternoon and evening, so most of our families can take an early minute from work and attend our sessions which start anywhere from 4 pm in Winter and 7pm in Summer.
What do we wear?
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.
If planning clothing for an extended family session, it’s best to give everyone a bit of a guideline, but don’t be too fussy. It’s all personal preference and having everyone happy and comfortable is a priority!
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!
Where are these sessions held?
Our Family Sessions can be held at any of our locations – Studio, Family Home, Forest & Field (Blackwood) or Beach (Port Willunga)
How much are family 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.
