Being photographed professionally can seem a little daunting. We will prepare you for your session and direct you every step of the way. We want you to enjoy this rare experience and capture you at your very best. If you would like some natural portraits of your family or loved ones, you will love our unique ‘natural light’ studios. Our large undercover outdoor studio has several beautiful sets and backdrops that you can choose from that are world class and make you feel like you are in the backlots of a film studio.
We can photograph up to 30 people at our studios comfortably. We frequently photograph large family groups as well as smaller groups and individuals. You might also like to include your pets in your family portraits. In short, we can photograph whomever you like on the day.
Portrait Sessions run from 40 to 90 min depending on the settings and backdrops chosen, the number of individuals and the age of the participants. We want you to relax and enjoy your experience with us and the best portraits are always taken when you are comfortable with your surroundings through the course of the session.
For infants, bare skin is best, but soft colours are good too. For children, we suggest bringing 1 or 2 different outfits. Denim or solid neutral colours look best. For families, we recommend plain colours that complement each other and suit your skin tones. Avoid bright colours or busy patterns which will take away from the focus and beauty of your faces.
This can certainly be organized for an additional charge. We can organize for a hair and make-up specialist in your area to come directly to you prior to your session time. Alternatively, if you prefer a more natural look, we will also give you some simple yet effective styling advice to prepare you for your portrait sitting.
All our artworks are professionally retouched by our in-house digital artists and framed or presented beautifully in a number of different ways. We are so proud of our final product that we can now offer a Lifetime Warranty, which only a few studios in the world can offer.
After your portrait sitting, our photographer will make a Design Session time for you to come and select your portraits. In addition to our standard frames, we can produce made-to-measure artwork collections and match any frames with your existing décor. We do also offer a payment plan for any extra portraits you order.
