Most of our families have never had a photo shoot before, and even if they have, ours are a little different.
This is a step-by-step guide so you know what to expect from this little ADVENTURE …
First things first: our sessions are seriously relaxed. It’s just you, the people you love, and a friendly person who happens to have a camera (that’s us!).
We want you to feel like you didn’t even know you were having your photo taken. We’ll give you direction, but we don’t ‘pose’ … you’ll be amazed at the beautiful images we can create even when there is toddler inspired chaos reining around us.
ONE: LET'S DO THIS!
The first decision is you saying “Yes! Let’s do this!”
Most families book when they are newly pregnant (for newborn sessions we book based on your due date + 10 or so days).
Our lead time for sessions is usually 4-6 weeks in advance as we do book up ahead of time, so make sure you give yourself plenty of time so you don’t miss out or feel rushed.
TWO: BOOK YOUR DATE
We charge a session fee of $285 to book your session date.
This covers your photographers time and talent to create a gorgeous gallery of images for you to choose from, and an 8×10″ matted art print.
Please note, the session fee does not include digital files. A full copy of our entire product guide will be sent upon enquiry.
Most families spend around $1995 which includes all of the digital files from your session and a beautiful framed print although there are lots of options available.
FOUR: YOUR SESSION
Your session is here!
We know ‘just getting there’ can be stressful. We’ve worked with kids and animals for a collective total of 55 years, so we’ve got you. Don’t stress.
We play, we discover, we chat, we drink coffee! (or run around a forest & field or even the beach) … we’ll direct your imagery but we won’t ‘pose’ you … most of the time our families just need a little bit of direction and then the magic happens.
We’ll send you home with some info about what happens next, including when your online gallery will be heading to you! YAY!
FIVE: GALLERY DELIVERY
Within 14 days of your session your beautiful will be emailed through to you. Hold on to your heart, this is the fun bit!
You can place your order through the online gallery and delivery of digital files is instant. Printed products take 4 weeks or so to come together, but are worth the wait.
Some families wish to book a Design Appointment so we can assist with designing wall art collections, this can be booked after digital files are purchased.
Your finished wall art, prints and albums are ready for collection! If you purchase digital files they are delivered instantly via your online gallery.
And the best bit? Is watching your little people grow up and admire themselves and the people who love them, on a daily basis, as they see their family’s portraits proudly displayed.
All the feels right there.
