Our magic formula

Our magic formula

You have to beleive in magic to be a photographer, here are the six ingredients that we use everyday to create award winning portraits for our clients.

1. Initial enquiry

We have a chat on the phone about you and what you require. I know you are busy and in a short space of time we will have determined what will best suit your needs and we will have many great suggestions so that your portraits exceed your expectations.

2. Portrait design

We welcome you to visit the studio for this session, however, we do understand that it is easier said than done. I have put examples of my various portrait styles and product ranges on the website so it is very convenient for you to see what you like.

My job is to learn about you and your loved so that I can suggest which studio style will suit you. I love this part of the design session because it is always exciting planning a portrait session with a client. I get creative and bounce some ideas around and before you know it we are raring to go!

At this stage I have listened to your requirements and suggested one of our styles to suit, I know whether it is on location or in the studio and I have got the creative juices flowing so that your portraits will exceed your expectations. Your portraits look absolutely fantastic! Now I need to look at how you are going to show them off to anyone that visits your home.

Firstly check out your home and look for focal points and areas of social warmth which may be the lounge room, dining room or another imporant space. We recommend to select areas that are clutter free so they do not conflict with the display. We welcome our clients to email us a few pics of their home so that I can advise which space would really work for you.¬† Our design expertise can help you elevate the idea from “hanging a picture” to creating a feature display in your home that you will want to display with pride. Our wall art will transform the space that you live in and create personality throughout your home. Once installed, you will want to show them off and you can enjoy them for a lifetime!

We will send you an email outlining what we had discussed at the Portrait Design session so that you can show everyone who will be involved in the portraits. This will also contain advice on what to wear, outfit changes, length of the session and addresses of locations.

3. Follow up call

We will give you a call three days before the session to confirm the time and location. After discussing the Portrait Design with everyone who will be involved in the Portraits you may have some extra suggestions or changes for me to make a note of. We welcome any extra refinements because it is important that everyone is happy and excited about the portraits.

4. The Portrait session

Your Portrait Session can be at one of my carefully selected locations or at the studio. The studio is designed to make your experience both fun and enjoyable, we have air conditioning and heating for your comfort and private changing rooms.

The sessions last approx 45 minutes, however for babies we do add extra time for feeding and any suprises and small children sessions have a little bit more time as we do play with them before the photos take place so that they are fully relaxed and enjoying the experience.

5. Viewing and order session

After the fun and excitement of your portrait session, we will schedule a time for you to come in for an unforgettable personal presentation in our viewing theatre.

Our team of image specialists will have selected the best portraits from your session and you can enjoy your portraits for the first time  in high definition  on the big screen. Our custom made viewing software is a big hit with my clients because it takes the pain out of choosing your favourite images. We can project actual print sizes, show the images in various finishes like black and white, colour or sepia and design your unique artwork for you.

This is all made very easy because we know what style of artwork will suit your space the best. We have asked you about your style of home, the furnishings, existing wall art and sizes so that we can advise you and help you make the right choices. Artwork is as important as the portraits themselves and our experience and expertise will help you to make the right choices so that you can show them off, display them with pride and enjoy them for a lifetime!

Your artwork investment can be paid by Take Home Layby, Mastercard, Visa, Eftpos, Cash and Cheque

6. Collection of your Artwork

All images are given a bit of extra magic by our team of image specialists so that they meet our high standards. Once they have been received and quality inspected we will contact you for collection. This is one of our favourite moments because our reward is seeing how excited you are about the final result.
