What to expect …
With over 35 years’ experience, our hand-selected team will always strive to ensure that your time with us is memorable and here is our process.
For that reason, we want to be sure to create images that will be meaningful to you and your family in the decades to come and that’s why we take the time to discuss what you love about your family and how we can capture those feelings in your portraits.
On your initial call, will answer any questions you may have including clothing selection, so your portraits focus on you, not just on what you’re wearing. If what we discuss fits with what you have in mind, we can look at available appointment times, so please have your diary handy.
Your Portrait Session, set in one of our beautiful 130 year old studios, is going to be relaxed and fun. One of our experienced photographers, all who have worked overseas and have been trained by Mark Strachan, will go about creating beautiful images of those you care most about, in the way you will love!
For those families wanting their portraits created on location, founding photographer, Mark Strachan, is available for 2 to 3 families per month. Mark specialises in black & white imagery and these portraits may be created at your family home, beach or park at a nominal additional fee.
After your portrait session, we will find a suitable time for all parents in the session to come back to select the final portraits and we will give you important information to read in preparation for this.
At your Portrait Selection Appointment we will provide you valuable advice in selecting your family’s portraits and we will ensure that what you decide on is right for you, your family and your home. To help your decision making, we strongly recommend that 2 adults come to this appointment. Even though you may finish early, please allow 60-90 minutes for this appointment. We want you to make the right choices after all!
At artist photographer, we love children, however, we have found that young children aged 2 – 7 can greatly increase the length of your Portrait Selection Appointment. Please let us know in advance if you have to bring young children to your Image Selection Appointment, as we may need to arrange a baby-sitter to be at our studio.
