Your family portrait session will be done outdoors, there are so many beautiful locations in Sydney. I find that going outside gives us more variety in background and kids have more fun playing and running in a park or beach.
During our planning session we talk about your options and what you are looking for so that we can choose the best spot for your family photos.
Our first meeting will be to plan your shoot. I would love to shout you a coffee but if you are pressed for time, I can give you a call. We will talk location and styling. I also want to get to know your family. What do you like to do together? What are the kids into? I ask these questions so that I can create a fun environment for everyone at the shoot.
On shoot day, I arrive early to check out light and crowd conditions to plan the best way to capture the best photos for you. Then we let the magic happen. I am armed with games and bribes for the kids if they need convincing to create magic...
Each image in your gallery will be edited and ready for you to view in 1-2 weeks after your shoot.
At the design appointment you will see your photos for the first time. I can help you design the perfect wall art to make your house a home or create an album you will cherish.
What happens if it rains or someone in my family gets sick on shoot day?
We reschedule. If it looks like a chance of rain I will get in touch in the morning of our shoot to discuss our options. I want you and your family to enjoy the shoot and not have to worry about the weather. If someone falls ill, they need to rest and get better, the shoot can happen when they are 100%.
What do we wear?
All my clients receive a Welcome Guide which includes a styling guide for your family photos with example images.
What if my husband isn’t feeling it or my kids are cranky?
I am here to capture your family as they are, this is your story. I find that as the session moves along and everyone gets a little more comfortable, the mood shifts to a more happy state.
Where do we need to go for the design appointment?
The design appointments are done at my Five Dock studio. If you are unable to make a mid week session, we can arrange for a weekend appointment. It is important that the decision makers be present at your design appointment as you are allocated one appointment per shoot.
How long do we need to wait for our print products?
Your wait time varies depending on what you have ordered. Art mounted prints are approx 2-3 weeks, wall art are approx 4-6 weeks, albums and keepsake boxes are approx 6-8 weeks. These wait times will be greater during the peak periods of Christmas and Mothers Day.
