Why invest in professional family portraits
Something happens to us when we see pictures of ourselves with family. We feel the little details that remind us of that moment in time and nostalgia sets in. Pictures, like memories and stories are your families legacy. Family portraits are passed down and being present in them will one day be the most precious gift your children and your childrens children will have to remember you by. We take so many photos with our phones and I often wonder if snap chat filters will be what remains for our children to remember their childhood by. Mobile phones are so convenient but they leave a void in family photos that can't be filled unless you decide to be in them too. Nothing is more precious than having beautiful family photos. Life gets busy with little ones and we're all guilty of putting them off. "I have nothing nice to wear, the kids will never sit still, the pre-baby body is gone, we can't afford it" Sound familiar? Life's short, kids grow up fast and little moments pass by so quickly. If your here, reading this it means you've been thinking about this for quite some time. Now's the time act, give us a call and lets start creating something special together.
Why choose us as your family photographer
We want your children to be children and your family to be you. Family photography is our thing! we've produced beautifull family portraits including toddlers and threenagers in the midst of every human emotion known to man. We've woven the magic of a child's imagination into stunning family portraits, have made family photography appealing to teens and have helped remind families of the people they were and the people they will always be. We don't insist on smiles, or make you dress in matching outfits (awkward!), we won't make you strike a pose (unless you want to!) but we will capture your family bond in a way that you want to remember, showing the love and connection your family shares. We don't just give you a date and show up on the day. On average we invest 16 hours behind the scenes planning, consulting, capturing, post-processing, delivering your beatuiful fine art and following up with you. We aim to give you all the tools, share all our tips and tricks to make the process a stress free and enjoyable experience. If this sounds like something you need, let's start creating something beatuiful together.
How we help you prepare for your family photography session
Regardless of what stage of life your family is at or how your family is structured, the countless little moments you share make your story unique. Our first step is to talk to you about your family photography needs. To capture your families story we take the time to plan your session by learning about the adventures you've shared, what family stories you have, what traditions you share, what funny little things your kids do, what struggles you've faced and how you'd like us to capture these moments for you to remember in years to come. We aim to find out a little about the decor in your home so that we can guide you on locations and wardrobe styling that best suits your lifestyle and your homes decor. We will help you coordinate colours and textures and assist you to style the entire crew from things you already have. We can provide advice on natural looking hair and make-up, provide tips and tricks on how to flatter natural features and will even help you prepare young children for the experience. We provide clients with a phone consultation and a comprehensive family session guide so you can refer back to it at any time. You'll also receive our product guide to get you thinking about where you'd like to display your beautiful family portraits and the exciting options ahead beyond a standard canvas or 8 x 10.
When will our photos be ready
Most of the magic happens before and after the session with the largest portion of your session spent post-processing your images. We custom hand edit each individual image rather than use preset automation. This ensures your treasured moments have a uniqueness to them that no one can ever re-create in the same way.. Your family moments deserve attention to detaill and on average 6 - 7 hours iis spent in the re-touching phase using natural portrait re-touching techniques to make subtle enhancements to the skins texture. We remove tiny skin imperfections, scuffed knees and scratches, lessen (but not remove) the appearance of wrinkles and dark circles under the eyes, remove blemishes, even out skin tones, whiten teeth, brighten eyes and correct over-saturated red pigments of the skin. Portrait re-touching is subtle but produces a desireable natural look to enhance your natural details and keep you looking like you . Much of what we do has already been achieved in camera but we do make artistic adustments to colour, light and tone to enhance background scenery in a style consistent with our portfolio. Your fully re-touched gallery is made available to preview and make selections approximately 20 business days (usually much sooner!) after the session. Digital only packages are delivered via a private online gallery. A complimentary in person gallery presentation, design consultation and ordering appointment is extended to families who desire a preference for displaying family moments as high quality fine art.
