You are not just going to get some photos taken. You are going to be treated to a premium service designed to fit your tastes, preferences and lifestyle. At the end of this fun, easy experience, you will be handed some beautiful printed artwork, chosen by you, for your home. Read below to find out what will happen from start to finish when you book a portrait session with me. 

Step 1. Booking

Photographer Whakatane

I am available for portrait sessions from 10am -2pm Monday to Friday, and evenings on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Evening sessions are for taking advantage of the sunset, so in all cases need to start an hour before sunset (approx 4:30pm in Winter and 7pm in Summer). It helps to consider of what time of session and location is more suitable for younger members of your family.

If you have children in school during my session times, my advice is that this is a rare event that will be a nice break from their routine and it usually doesn't hurt to pull them out for an hour or two for your session.  Once you know when all your family members are available, contact me to arrange your session.

Step 2. Pre session

Have a look at my work (click here to view my gallery) so you can get an idea of what you want for your session. I will send you a very short questionnaire so I can plan your shoot to suit you perfectly in terms of style, length and colours. This is the time you start planning your outfits and location. What you wear will influence the colour tones and style of your artwork so it is worth taking the time to plan this element of your shoot.

Step 3. Your shoot

This is where the magic happens! With your input I will have planned the perfect shoot for you that is personalised to your family. Either I come to an agreed upon location (I can suggest several or I can come to your home) or we meet at my studio, where I take you through a set of poses and shots that doesn't leave you wondering what you should be doing - I guide you through everything from where to stand to what to do with your hands. You will be surprised at how easy it is and yet you will still look like yourselves.

When I have finished photographing you, you will have the option of viewing real examples of my display options, where you can touch and feel them and start imagining them in your home. This is the time we also book your design appointment.
