Here is what we will do; your portrait session will be individually designed just for you. Our aim, as a portrait studio, is to capture the true essence of children, couples and families. Combining unique backdrops and innovative photography we will create a unique portrait that is special and decorative. Our 5 star studio facility has an undercover outdoor studio with a garden courtyard, country cottages, barn, beach cave, bridges and sandstone facade. For a more formal look you may prefer our indoor white room studio with numerous props and backdrops. You can be assured that we will listen and work with you so we can create the perfect look for you.

As a person, couple or family you have shared many life experiences together and what better reason to share this Gift Card with the people you love and record your relationship with a professional portrait before time slips away. For 40 years I have photographed thousands of families and couples and we know the joy it will bring to you for many years. The whole experience will bring you together and this alone is Priceless.

Can I bring other people, kids, motorcycle, pets etc to my session?
Couples can bring anything you like in for the shoot or you can bring other family members at no extra charge. We can photograph up to 20 people at our studios comfortably.
Can I give my Gift Card to someone else?
Yes you can give your Gift Card to someone else providing you let us know the person you are gifting to ASAP. Simply pass on the sms or email you received so we can confirm receipt and transfer the gift card to them.
How long will my Session take?
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.
What should I Wear?
Denim or solid neutral colours look best. For couples, we recommend plainer colours that complement each other and suit your skin tones. Avoid bright colours or busy patterns which will take away from the beauty of your faces. Once you have fully booked in with us we will send you a video to guide you in this area of styling.
We do NOT provide ‘Hair and Makeup’
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.
Are there any hidden costs that I don’t know about?
No. There are no hidden costs or charges involved. Your Gift Card entitles you to your photographic session, a design session plus a credit or product. You can just use the $600 Gift Card or if want to purchase others for yourself you have this option – It’s up to you. Portraits can make a great gift.
Is there any pressure or obligation to buy extra portraits?
Absolutely not! It is totally up to you if you wish to purchase any extra artworks or not. As professionals we recognise that our portraiture is unique so if you do fall in love with what you see, we will give you our complete pricelist at your session itself, for you to consider before you place any orders.
What happens after my portrait session?
After your portrait sitting, our photographers 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 offer a payment plan for any extra portraits you order.
When will my portraits be ready?
Usually between 6 – 8 weeks of placing your order. Any orders on a payment plan will naturally take a bit longer. We will always endeavour to have your portraits prepared for you as soon as possible. We do have an urgent service available on request.
