Family & Children’s Portrait photography

Dezire Studios specialises in creating beautiful  portrait photography. From stunning family portraits, to creative children’s portraits and even intimate newborn portraits. Our portrait photography sessions are normally an hour-and-a-half adventure.They are a very intimate and special experience. Your portrait will be candid and natural and will capture your lifestyle and personality.

Step 1. Pre-portrait consultation:

A pre-portrait consultation is normally held via phone or skype,  you can also elect for a personal meeting. The pre consultation is aimed at helping you explore the range of products on offer so you can prepare for what you will furnish your home with after the portrait shoot.We will also discuss a style guide on what to wear, confirm a location, book in a time and discuss payment options.

This short consultation is a good chance to acquaint yourself with the photographer from the portrait photography session in person, and develop that important rapport before a photograph is taken.

Step 2. The portrait shoot:

Our portrait photography sessions can be up to an hour-and-a-half adventure (obviously this depends on your kids). The experience is fun, rich and vibrant. Be yourself with no need to stress out as we are very patient. Kids especially can feel stressful vibes and this could make things difficult for the photo shoot. Your portrait will be candid and natural and will capture your lifestyle and personality. We recommend you arrive 5 minutes before your session time to help children adjust to the environment.

Step 3. First sneak peek:

The first 48 hours – Usually within 48 hours after the portrait photography session, we will post a little preview of your session on social media. You will receive a link and we encourage you to tag family and friends so they too can enjoy the experience. Images posted online are generally proof standard only and copyright restrictions apply for downloading and printing.

Step 4. Preview and ordering:

21 days – Your Photographs will begin being processed immediately so that you can be shown a full preview within 3 weeks of your portrait sitting. Here you will have the opportunity to re-live your family photo shoot and finalize which photographs will make up your order. Our stylish, interactive presentation includes software which allows  a virtual look at what the prints will look like in your home, ensuring you can purchase with complete confidence.

Sessions where only wall prints are being ordered include a preview of approximately 35 images. For those requesting albums, approximately 100 images are included at the preview along with a pre designed version of your album for review. It is important to indicate your preferences at the pre portrait – consultation to avoid delays. Digital proofs will be available online for 3 days after your preview session to allow extended family the opportunity to order their own private collections and have them processed with your order.

Step 5. Collecting your order:

28 days – It is important that the bulk order is placed at preview session. This allows a quick turn around in your completed order. Framed print, albums and digital collections are to picked up together. If there is no delays in stock from our suppliers your complete order should be ready for collection within 4-6 weeks  from the time you placed the order.

Step 6. Online options and downloads:

Once your completed order from the portrait photography session has been collected, clients that have ordered digital version will be given a code to download the high resolution version. This code can be shared with family and friends. The standard gallery is available for 3 months online. Online orders can still be placed during this time.
