What happens when you book a session with us?

The entire portrait process takes place in several different meetings with us: 

> The Pre-Session Consultation, 
> The Session, 
> The Preview & Ordering Appointment, 
> Delivery and Installation (always the best bit!) and; 
> A Future Plan.

The Pre-Session Consultation

Great portraits begin with a great relationship. Tell us about your family, your home and your vision and we'll add in our creativity to make it happen.

We will coordinate how we shoot the session based on your family and personalities. Your shoot is NOT simply due to chance. It is carefully planned and fully designed. We will discuss with you how your images will be displayed, colour design, location planning and what to wear, plus the look and feel of the session.

The pre-consultation answers ALL your questions and helps us get to know your family. Pre-consults can take place in-person or over the phone.

The Session

Preparing for a session can be, but need not be, somewhat stressful for families. Don’t wonder if the kids will behave, or agonize over what to wear, just convince your Man that it won't be "that bad" and arrive with a happy heart.

Sessions with Di are anything but stressful. Fun­ filled, happy and relaxed, Di doesn't care about crazy kids! (Did we mention we have 9 grandkids? Been there, done that!) In fact, often the crazier, the better, for that’s when their real personality (the one you love most) will shine through.

Sessions can either take place in your home (our favourite) or on location depending upon the desired outcome. 

We pride ourselves on exceptional customer service, a commitment to each family's desired outcome and the creation of unique art for your home.

Viewing and Ordering

This is where we all really have fun! The Viewing & Ordering Appointment is the time when you get to see all the fruits of the session and Di’s post-production expertise pay off. We always get real satisfaction seeing your excitement and appreciation. Your images are displayed on our laptop and we take the time to design the album and artwork for you.   This is the time when you will finalize your order, so be sure to pick a time when all decision-makers can be present. We'll help you sort through the images and make final decisions easy for you. We will also demonstrate examples of our products so that you can readily make your selection knowing what the final outcome will be.

All of our products are of the highest quality and are manufacturer guaranteed so we are sure you will be excited about what lies ahead!

Delivery and Installation

Immediately following the Ordering appointment, we carefully prepare your digital prints in the correct format for our printer and constantly liaise with them.

About 2-3 weeks later, your art piece will be ready for delivery and installation. We'll call or email you to let you know it's here and make arrangements with you to deliver your images to your home when it's convenient for you.

We choose to personally deliver your artwork as we want to ensure that you are delighted with the outcome, plus we also get a real buzz watching you and your family unwrap them. It’s kind of like Christmas to us and it’s so satisfying to have happy clients! So, now you get to enjoy those beautiful storybooks every day. Because this is for your family and you deserve it!

A Future Plan

Life is full of opportunities and changes. Your story continues – nothing is static. Your children will grow and change, as do we all. At some future date, there will be a time when you want to update your books, to continue the family heritage. The next time you choose to work with us, we'll create art that coordinates with sessions past, so you can build upon what we've already created for you in a way that works and delights you year after year.

Session Types

We offer either in-home or on-location session options to create the perfect photographic art that is specially designed for your requirements. 

These can include:
a photo storybook with your personalised written story,
> a mini-album,  
> Lumi tiles,
> Wall art, and: 
> digital images of all edited photographs so that you can preserve for your family.

I had the experience of having "A day in my life" perfectly captured by Di.  Geoff has given it the right words to make it a very special fotobook for my husband, who is working away for half of the year. Jasmin Lance (My Little Party Hire)
