Family Session Information
We're so happy you've reconized the importance of having quality photos of your loved ones. One day those photographs become the most precious thing in the world. Bronwyn Parsons Photography offers professional family photography, undertaking family photography in Canberra and Queanbyean.
Why invest in professional portraits
Having a friend with a "good camera" doesn't make them any more of a family photographer than a pair of scissors makes you a hair dresser. A professional family photographer has spent countless hours perfecting their craft, learning how to see and sculpt light while using thorough technical knowledge to achieve the desired outcome in camera rather than the camera being in control and deciding the outcome. We photograph with purpose and plan from start to finish with the end result in mind. We work into the wee hours of the early morning post-processing the blueprint of what we capture at your session and turn it into custom fine art. We take ordinary scenes, introduce everyday people and place ourselves in the right place at the right time. We don't manufacture your moments but we do turn seemly ordinary scenes into something captivating to help you remember your family bond in years to come.
Why choose us
We want your children to be children and your family to be you. Family photography is our thing! we've produced beautifull family portraits undertaking family todder photography and family child photography 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 memories in a way that you want to remember them showing the love and connection your family shares.
How we help you prepare
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. What adventures have you shared, what family stories do you have, what traditions do you share, what funny little things do your kids do, what struggles have you faced and how would you like to remember those moments in years to come? We'll find out a little about the decor in your home so that we can guide you on locations that best suit your lifestyle. We'll help you coordinate colours and textures and assist you to style your families wardrobe from things you already have. We can provide advice on natural looking hair and make-up and guide you on what bring and how to prepare young children. We will also have an open and honest discussion about self-perception so that we may photograph you in an authentic but flattering way.
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 photos. We custom edit everything by hand rather than use a one click process to retouch your photos. We individually correct tiny skin imperfections, adjust colour and light then enhance the overall artistic feel of each individual photo consistent with our portfolio. Proofing galleries are presented in an online proofing gallery approximately 20 business days after the session for you to make your final selections.
What products do you offer
We offer digital only collections or a combination of print and digital collections. We cater for clients looking for affordable digital packages and clients looking for a full service experience who value the quality of professional prints to display in their homes We provide add-on printed products or print inclusive pacakges, offering a wide selection of standard prints, fine art prints, torn edge fine art prints, matted art-mount with print, framed prints, acrylic prints, metal prints, albums and canvas.
Our fine art prints are printed on museum quality Hahnemühle Photo Rag made from 100% cotton using archival pigment inks making them incredibly detailed. Our standard prints are printed on premium paper offering amazing colour, exceptional quality, durability and longevity. In our digital world today, often the starting point of the desire for the digital product is higher than that of the desire of the printed product and while you may be able to print them yourself (if they don't stay on a usb forgotten in a drawer), you simply can't buy many of the products at the same quality retail. Digital files are not the best representation of our work or of your investment and while digitals might seem convenient, the longevity of the devices you store them on, the data contained in a jpg file is unknown.
Winter special offer (valid till 30/6/2018)
We understand that not everyone wants printed products and not everyone has the budget associated with full service photography where by pricing factors in the photographers labor for editing a greater number of images for clients to select from. Editing 30 plus images can take anywhere between 4 - 6 hours of solid custom hand editing after the session along with up to 2 hours of pre-session preperation and administration associated with all package types. We pride ourselves on being one of Canberra's best and most affordable family photographers and provide the option of either full service family phography or just the Essentials where by we carefully select the best images from the day,, reducing the cost of labor associated with editing and the overall cost to families. Our Essentials Winter Package is just $299 (no additional session fee) and includes 10 high resolution images selected by the photographer. Partial payment is taken in advance of the session to secure the date and the remaining balance isn't due until we deliver your proofing gallery, providing families the option to pay in installments while we edit your gallery..
