BOOK YOUR FAMILY SESSION

Let's create some long lasting memories for your family. My sessions are fun filled, relaxed and give your children room to be themselves. Together we will create some magical moments of joy and connection and I will capture images that you and your children will treasure for years to come.

You have the choice of a lifestyle session in the comfort of your own home or a sunset outdoor session on a location. Whether you love the beaches and cliffs down the coast, the gorgeous Dandenong Ranges, your own family farm or huge open field. Melbourne has lots to offer. Together we can work out exactly what look and feel you are after.

BEHIND THE SCENES WITH JANINE

I WANT TO BOOK A SESSION, WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

Please get in touch with me via the contact form. Once you have decided on a date for your session I will forward you a standard portrait session agreement as well as an invoice of $250. Your session is logged in as soon as you've paid the session fee and filled in the agreement. From there we will have a chat and work out exactly what feel and look you are after, go over locations, outfits and any other questions you might have. 

DO YOU SERVICE MY AREA?

I travel to your home for your family or newborn photo session to capture the real essence of your family. I service all inner Melbourne suburbs, such as Richmond, South Yarra, Hawthorn, Fitzroy and Malvern as well as outer suburbs from Williamstown to the Mornington Peninsula. On location sunset sessions are available all over Victoria. I love to travel to gorgeous wide open fields, beaches or family farms. For any interstate photo session, please get in touch to discuss. I would love to hear from you. 

WHERE SHOULD I HAVE MY PHOTOS TAKEN?

In home lifestyle sessions are a special way to create some lasting memories of your family life in your own environment. Children usually feel more confident in their own home. In home sessions can be done at any time of the day, I suggest 10am or 2pm depending on your child’s naps. Outdoor sessions are striclty done at sunset due to light conditions. If you love the golden light you see in my photos I recommend an on location sunset session. Whether your family loves the beach, hiking in the hills, having a picnic in a big open field, spending some time on your families farm or exploring the city lane ways. Melbourne’s scenery has a lot to offer. I travel all over Melbourne to create a unique and special memory for you and your loved ones.

WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR FOR OUR FAMILY PHOTO SESSION?

Keep it simple. Most important is to be comfortable and to be yourself. Since this is a relax and fun session, keep it casual. For a family I suggest to pick 3-4 colours and dress everyone in those tones without being matchy-matchy. I would pick 2-3 neutral tones like white, grey, blue/olive and one colour that pops like mustard, red or yellow. Natural tones photograph really well. I love floral pattern, stripes, textures and layers. But if you are more of a plain person, keep it simple. Please stay away from black and logos/prints on clothing. If you are unsure about your choice, send me some photos through. I am here to help. 

WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS OR WE GET SICK?

If the weather isn't suitable for a photo session or your child is sick we will postpone your session without any extra charge. 

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE SESSION?

After your session I will go home, edit and select your gallery images. You will receive an online proofing gallery within 2 weeks of your session with about 50-80 images to choose from. Once you have decided on your package and paid your fee, I will release your chosen images for instant download. If you decide on a collection that includes print products, you will receive those after approximately 4-8 weeks after ordering.
