Portrait Photography Perth
Portrait photography sessions take place at my studio in Lesmurdie, in the Perth Hills. Appointments are available Monday to Friday 9am till 5pm and Saturday 9am till 12 noon.
A portrait photography session usually takes about 1-2 hours, INCLUDING HAIR AND MAKE UP. I will be taking a selection of emotive images of your child that brings out the best in them. Clothing and styling is very important in these sessions to give the right feel to your images.We will chat about some ideas and feel free to look through my gallery for inspiration and contact me for advice on what works well. I love simple outfits which don’t detract but add to the mood of images. I suggest that you bring about three outfits with you, you can also choose something from my custom wardrobe. I really want the images I take to capture of your child/children looking natural and with no forced expressions. These sessions are for those wanting something very special to hang on the wall.

Your Portrait Photography Experience – the process from start to finish
To book a portrait photography session with one of the best portrait photographers in Perth, all you need to do is contact me via email or telephone and discuss your requirements. At this stage I will get all the relevant information about what you would like from your session and discuss clothing. Once a suitable date has been agreed a deposit of $150 is required to secure your appointment time. This deposit is non-refundable but fully transferable if you need to change your appointment time.
When you arrive for your photography session I will go through the outfits you have brought and choose what I think will work best. Your child will spend approximately an hour having hair and make up done. From here you can sit back and enjoy seeing your child being photographed. I will quietly direct and encourage your child all the way through the session to get the very best from them. I will be guided by their capabilities so that they feel comfortable and at ease. I will take as many photographs as I feel I need to get some truly special images for you. Photographic session times vary depending on the child – they can last between 30 minutes and 2 hours.
Your images will be ready to view two to three weeks after your session date. Before you see your images I will carefully go through all the photographs taken in your session and select the very best ones for you to view. I will then spend several hours working on them to ensure you see them at their finest. They will be cleaned up, colour balanced, and edited to remove any blemishes in order to make sure your child looks their best. They will also be adjusted to give a beautiful ‘Fine Art’ feel to them. When you view your images you will see them in a selection of colour and black and white finishes.
You can either view your images in your home or preferably by appointment with me back at the studio.
At the studio: Viewing your images at the studio means we can sit together to go through your photographs one by one and discuss which are the best images to purchase. I can help you choose the most suitable products for your needs and suggest ideas that will make your chosen images look beautiful in your home. All the products that I sell are bespoke and of the highest standard. They are guaranteed to last a lifetime and of archival quality. I have specially selected all my products to suit my photography and look amazing in your interior.
Due to the bespoke nature of every order, payment is required at your viewing session. From here your selected images will be checked over very carefully and prepared for printing onto your chosen product. As all frames, canvases, and acrylics are handmade, orders generally take between 3-6 weeks before they are ready for collection.
