Custom sessions are $150 and this includes the photography session as well as the preparation of a full gallery of images for you to select from. You are then able to pick and choose your favourite images to build your own package from the unique boutique products available.
You can choose between the timeless, clean white space of the studio, your family home or maybe a location you love. I have some beautiful locations that I have discovered if you are looking for ideas.. Custom sessions are exactly that – customised to suit your family. Choose your setting, choose your style, choose whatever feels right for you!
People often ask “When is the best time for family photos?” and the truth is – now! Now is perfect because before you know it, time will have passed and you will have missed the opportunity to record what is beautiful in your family right now. For children under one, great milestones to record beyond those initial newborn days are the big knowing smiles from 3 months old and sitting independently around 6-8 months.
How long do sessions take?
Sessions with me have no time limit – children take time to warm up to a new situation. I keep it fun and we take breaks whenever needed. Giving them all the time they need to feel comfortable allows me to capture a beautiful series of images that you can choose from. For younger children, I’m experienced in working in with their short attention span. Generally we would spend around 1-1.5hrs together.
What to wear?
What you wear is entirely up to you and the look you want to create. Something you feel great in and can comfortably play with your children in is ideal. Clothing can create a style, set the tone, depict the season or create a strong or subtle colour palette in your final images. The old rule of thumb is to avoid busy patterns, horizontal stripes, clashing colours and t-shirts with logos but, if that describes your family then throw out the rule book and tell your own story!
You don’t all need to be in matching outfits. Some people go to a lot of effort to co-ordinate their family’s wardrobe and for others, the kids dictate what is worn on the day. If in doubt, simplicity is best because it is always less about the clothes and more about the people and moments they share.
What happens next?
People are always keen to see something straight away so join me on Facebook for a first glimpse. I will share a little sneak peek on my blog in the days following your session and will let you know when that is available to be viewed.
Over the next few weeks I prepare the images for your personal online gallery. When this is ready I send you a link so you can view them at your leisure before we meet back at the studio for your image selection appointment. This is when you can make your final selections, see the actual print sizes, and touch and feel all the boutique products on offer.
