There’s an art to photographing kids because “having their photo taken” is not something they care much about. They’re much more interested in play, showing off their toys and outfits, kicking a ball around, dancing, poking around in the dirt .. you know, being kids.
We know how to interact with kids in a way that keeps them engaged. We particularly love photographing active kids who don’t like to sit still.
This allows us to capture your kids in a way that shows off their natural selves, instead of suppressing them and making them “smile for the camera”.
A great photograph is 50% great expression and 50% great lighting.
We work as a team of two, which gives us an ability to create advanced lighting set-ups. One person photographs, while the other person uses reflectors and specialised sun scrims to create superb lighting in your photos.
This ensures your photos have a gentle, soft, dreamy feel – like in the ones which you see in our portfolio. It’s something that a photographer working by him/herself cannot match.
After your photos are taken, the editing process begins. We don’t use presets or cookie-cutter bulk photo processing programs.
Each photo needs a unique touch that only a human eye can provide. Our 6-stage in-house editing process ensures that every one of your photos is meticulously retouched and you look your best.
Photos are more than just pretty pictures; they’re stories, suspended in time. Those stories are so much more meaningful to you if they tell something authentic about your family.
We like to get to know you before the photography session. We’ll have a chat with on the phone and talk about your kids’ hobbies and personality traits. We then go away and create concepts for your photographs, based on what you’ve told us. This ensures that your photoshoot is customised to your family and your photos are original and have great meaning to you.
We want to make sure you’re completely happy with your photos. If your photos somehow fall short of your expectations, you’re fully covered by our no-questions-asked 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.
And to give you a complete piece of mind, check out our ever-growing list of delighted customers.
A lot of parents prefer to buy high-resolution images from us and take them to a photo lab to make prints.
The only trouble is that most photo labs offer fairly average quality printing, compared with what’s possible.
We have tested printing labs around Sydney until have found 3, which stand out head and shoulders above the rest. They’re photo labs that other professional photographers use and we’re happy to share the “trade secrets” with you.
This means you can have a piece of mind that you’re getting professional-grade wall prints.
The honest truth about photographing kids is that, despite our best intentions, they just might not be having a good day on the day of the photography session.
It doesn’t mean that the quality of your photos needs to suffer.
We make room for kids’ moods and, if we aren’t able to get all the photos we need on the day, we’re happy to arrange for a top-up session on another day to make sure you get a complete collection of photos in which your little one(s) are happy and chirpy.
Before beginning to shoot professionally full-time, Steven was lucky enough to work as an assistant to some of Australia’s leading fashion and lifestyle commercial photographers.
It means he learned nuances of lighting, composition and ability to put people he photographs at ease from the best professionals in the industry. And you benefit because your photoshoot is relaxed and fun while your photos look like they could have come off pages of a top-notch lifestyle magazine.
