Preparing for your Photosession
Step 1: Designing your Photo shoot

Before your session, we will have a chat about your photo shoot and who will be coming along, to discover key relationships and the special little things that will make your photo shoot unique.

The best thing about being a photographer is that no two sessions are the same and I get to create ideas and styles that best suit who YOU are by discovering the dynamics of each relationship and what they mean to you. There’s nothing more rewarding than hearing a client tell me I’ve captured their loved ones perfectly as they are. To do that, I’ll ask you all the right questions about everyone’s personalities and what you love the most about them. This will ensure I am photographing all of the tiny details that make you and your loved ones who you are and make your heart fly every time you see your portraits on the wall.

By hearing about your loved ones and your home, I can suggest the perfect outfits and styles for your session. Displayed on the wall will be memories made, that are exactly, you.

Step 2: Your Bespoke session

When you arrive at the studio you’ll be welcomed with café style beverages, a welcome board of delicious goodies and the best advice on the finishing touches for your styling. I will do some little touch ups on hair and makeup and then we can jump into the studio.

You don’t need to be a professional model, your kids don’t need to be in their best mood, your pet doesn’t have to be calm and obedient. I will guide you through your session step by step, and I know all of the tricks to photographing exactly who you are. So just relax and enjoy it, make some memories and take off the pressure.

My clients always leave the studio on a cloud, feeling so connected to the people they love, and excited to see what I’ve created…

Step 3: Creating Wall Art

My favourite part! Around 1-2 weeks after your session, you will come back into our design room, and I will show you 55 of the best photographs I’ve captured. More delicious coffee and goodies… Now’s the time to sit back, relax, and re-live the memories.

There will giggles, there might be tears, and there will be lots of options to choose from. You will select your favourite photographs, and then together, we will carefully design beautiful wall art collections which will suit who you are as people, your home and style. In a short 6-8 weeks, your artwork will arrive at the studio, eagerly waiting to be displayed proudly in your home.

When we arrived at our viewing we were offered drinks and were set up with a lovely little platter. Our whole experience with the studio and especially our photographer Caity was wonderful and we will definitely recommend them to our family and friends. Thank you to the beautiful team and for our portraits they are beautiful, we can’t wait to hang in our home. Kind regards, Jade and Corey.”- Jade Larkin
“My daughter won her first photoshoot at 6 months old. Throughout our experience we got the pleasure of working with both Lana and Caity. Upon arrival for either session, you are greeted with platters, tea and coffee. It's a welcoming, open, beautiful space that you are welcomed into with open arms. Lana was our photographer and having never been in front of the camera, she had my husband and I relaxed in no time. Bub loved showing off for Lana, and absolutely smashed it out of the park. Caity took us through our photo selection process and worked with us to figure out what would best suit us. We ended up going 12 single prints we can frame ourselves. This pack also included ALL photos from our shoot so we didn't miss out on any, making the process much easier. These women captured the essence of our new little family, and I am so grateful I'll always have such a special time to reflect back on. Now the hard part begins... Where to hang?``- Jessica Shepherd
