step by step

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!

you: “hmmm, I’d really like some family portraits…”
us: “yay!”

The first decision to make is where you’d like your session held.

You can choose from our Edwardstown Studio, our Forest & Field or Beach location, or your Family Home.

All our session types (ie maternity, newborn, baby, family) can be held at any location.

TWO: THE SESSION FEE

We charge a session fee of $285.

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. 

You can purchase the session over on the gift voucher page and hold on to it until you’re ready to book your date and time.

OR you can jump on our booking link here and book your date and time straight away (this way you get first dibs at available session dates and times)

Please note, the session fee does not include digital files. A full copy of our entire product guide can be sent to you, or check out our finished products and pricing page here for a guide.

THREE: PLANNING

Planning is really important – check out facebook page and Insta as this will give you a feel for the sort of clothing that works well and the type of imagery we’ll produce. 

Have a think about what you’d like to create with your images in terms of photographic wall art and/or albums, as we will always have this end product in mind when creating your images.

Please know that we aim for you to LOVE your images. Like seriously LOVE them. So have a look through the finished products and pricing page to make sure you’re happy with our pricing.

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.

At the end, we’ll go through some of the products, wall art samples and albums and confirm a date for your Design and Ordering Appointment.

FIVE: DESIGN AND ORDERING

A few weeks after your session, we’ll come together at the studio for your Design and Ordering Appointment. This is a fabulous cinematic viewing experience and is really really special.

This is where you place your order and pay for the images and products you love.

Photographic prints and single digital files start at $195, full collections including ALL digital files are from $1595.

The Finished Products page will give you more information, and a full studio catalogue is available when you enquire.

SIX: COLLECTION

Your finished wall art, prints and albums are ready for collection! If you purchase digital files they are delivered within hours of your Design and Ordering appointment. Approximately 4-6 weeks for albums and custom wall art.

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.
