Your Family Photography Experience
step 1 - getting to know you
Everyone gets family photos done for different reasons and everyone likes to enjoy them in different ways. Do you love to decorate your home with your treasured memories, or perhaps you prefer keeping a record of your stories in albums?
My pre-session consultation process allows me to understand what you are wanting and tailor the experience just for you. Having this plan also means that we will get the most out of our time together and create the photo pieces that you’re going to love. I also find that having a plan helps to put everyone’s mind at ease and take any unnecessary stresses away.
I want to hear all about your family so that I can capture everyone’s unique personalities, and we’ll also go over details like location ideas, wardrobe choices, fun activities for the shoot and how you intend on enjoying your new memories.
step 2 - your photo session
My ultimate goal is to make sure your photo session is less like a photoshoot and more like a fun day out with your family. After all, the best part about memories is making them!
We can start collecting memories from within the heart of your home, and then perhaps move onto a favourite family spot like the beach, the local park or ice cream shop. The choices are endless! No awkward poses, no forced smiles. Just lots of fun and giggles as you create beautiful new memories in your family's story. With a seamless combination of lifestyle candids and beautiful portraiture, the images are sure to make your heart smile.
Remember, we’ve already done all the planning beforehand, so just relax and enjoy the time with your loved ones. I’m just there to capture the magic that you already have.
step 3 - your design appointment
The fun doesn't stop at the session. About 2 weeks afterwards, you’ll come to my home studio in Richmond to view your images and relive the memories we recently created. Taking the photos is half the job - printing and enjoying them completes the experience.
Together we’ll design the photo pieces we discussed in our consultation, ensuring that what you envisioned at the start of the experience comes to life. Whether we’re creating a wall display, an heirloom album or gifts for family and friends, each piece will be made of the highest archival quality from the industry’s top photo labs.
Your finished pieces will be ready for pickup about 2 weeks after the design appointment, and all that’s left for you to do is take your new artwork home and enjoy your portraits and family memories. These are your ‘moments that matter’, and these moments are best enjoyed time and time again.
