We pride ourselves on the customer service we provide to every single client and the stunning archival products we offer. Gone are the days of just getting a “CD of images” - we know they just sit on a computer gathering dust, hardly ever looked at again. Instead, we love to create beautiful pieces of art for you to display in your home, to walk past and enjoy for years and years to come. From your first inquiry to product delivery, we're here to help you through the entire process, customizing your experience to ensure you are happy with your final products.
A pre-session planning guide
Includes tips to ensure your session runs smoothly, a what to wear guide and location planning guide for family portraits.
We want each of our sessions to be unique to you and your family. This questionnaire helps us get to know you and lets us know what you want from your session.
Our sessions are fun and full of family time together. All you need to do is sit back and relax and let us work our magic. Our sessions aren't timed and we will take as long as we need to get the perfect photos - in saying that you can expect to spend anywhere from 45-90mins for a family session, and around 2 hours for a newborn.
The photoshoot itself
A viewing and ordering appointment
A couple of weeks after your session we will catch up to show you your images. We’ll help you sort through the images and make final decisions on what will look best with your home.
$100 product credit
This can be put towards any prints or products you wish to buy. Please see below for our product options and pricing.
* Please note in home newborn sessions outside of the Franklin area have a session fee of $325 to include for travel
There is no minimum spend required on prints - you just buy what you love. In saying that most of our clients spend anywhere from $400-$2000 on their photos.
For every printed piece you buy you will receive the corresponding digital files to share with your family and friends.
Interest free payment plans are available to spread your costs out and we also have gift registry options where your family and friends can contribute towards the cost of your photos for the likes of your baby shower.
You can order your artwork now and be able to enjoy it while you pay it off over the coming months
There is little value in your portraiture investment unless you have something tangible at its conclusion to enjoy. A printed piece that lives permanently in your home will be cherished for generations to come. What better way to display your favourite photos from the session, than on your walls to view and enjoy every day. We will help you design the perfect image and size for the place in which you wish to display it. We offer both wall art collections to display a range of your favourite images or one-off stand-alone pieces.
A beautiful hand made print box, containing your favourite images matted and ready to frame or display on an easel in your home. This is the perfect box to store and grow your collections, with additional matted prints being able to be added from future sessions with us.
Sitting down with your child on a holiday or even any random day, and turning through the pages of their baby book is the quality time you can never replace.
Allowing for the display of multiple images from your session, a book or album tells your family story and reminds us that flipping through pages can start wonderful conversations, remind us of beautiful times gone by, and stress to our children how truly, deeply loved they are. Each of our albums are handmade right here in New Zealand by Queensberry albums. These albums are of stunning quality and will stand the test of time.
Nothing beats a printed image especially if you are wanting to keep these photos forever, but we also understand the want to have these photos to share online and with your family and friends.
For every printed piece you buy you will receive the matching digital files, but you can also choose to add on any of the digital packages below. The more you spend on prints the cheaper these digitals become.
If you spend $1,500 or more on printed products then all of your digital files from your session are gifted to you.
I am a firm believer that the digital product is not the end result, a print is. There is no point spending heaps of money on professional photos if you can't enjoy them everyday. All of our products are archival and will stand the test of time so you are going to be able to hand them down the generations. Digital files do not last - hard drives fail, technology changes and unless you follow a rigorous backup system you will not be able to access these files in a few years time. Let us take the stress out of printing and do it for you, so you can just sit back and enjoy the final result.
