LIFE | INSPIRED | ART

the power to turn your life into art

&

and create memories of Everything you love

What is the perfect portrait package for you?

The custom photography experience I offer is like none other.  I am a Boutique-style photographer on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.

Style & Vision

Almost as important as quality and expertise is to find a photographer who has a style that resonates with you and your life. We will take some time to think about the styles of images you are looking for. Do you want outdoor or indoor (either classic and simple or with props for some shots) or do you want outdoor (lifestyle or styled). Where you will display your images and what you looking to accomplish with them (i.e family memories, portfolio, magazine editorial?)

What to Expect?

My goal is to create a relaxed, pressure - free environment for you and your children. I want to capture your children in the most most beautiful way I know how. We will discuss how to prepare for the session during our pre-session meeting or if you prefer via phone. I will do my best to customize your session to your personal needs. Whether it be scheduling a morning session for a fresh and rested kids or an evening shoot to get that gorgeous golden light in your images. Sessions generally will last from 1 to 3 hours depending on location and type of portraiture you choose. 

What Should I wear?

This is probably the number one question I get asked before a photo shoot. It can be pretty confusing to decide what outfits would be best for your photography session... but don't worry! The best outfit for every session is to dress timeless and classic looks that will last through the years. For a classic look, choose a soft colour palette, earthy colours. Sticking to timeless looks will let your personalities shine through. However, if you want fine art session and want to use trendy, rich colours, its your choice and either way, we can make a beautiful photo. Collaborations with vendors is also an option with styling.

Fine Art Portraits

Fine Art Portraits are a unique type of photography.   They capture your child in an emotive and timeless portrait.   The images should tell a story, demonstrate a feeling or make a statement.  They are an artform in their own right.   Sessions are normally more suitable for older children – say from around the age of 6 through to teenagers. The pre-teen stage can be a challenged time for children. They may struggle to find their identity and worry about their appearance. These sessions are perfect to help them gain self-confidence and recognize their own inner shine.

Once a session is booked in the diary, we can sit down & plan the shoot. We discuss clothing, hair, make-up (if applicable) and any props that we may use. Sometimes it's a good idea to involve the child in the planning to make them feel important and invested in the shoot.

  • $150 Session fee to secure your booking

  • Pre-session consultation

  • Up to 90 minutes of shooting of time

  • Portrait packages include digital files and start at $285

  • A la carte add ons are available and include our signature wall portraits

  • Sessions includes Hair, makeup. Styling clothing is discussed at length at the pre-consultation.

After the session, the images will be available to come and view at your Reveal Session. This is around 4 weeks after the photo session has taken place. Here we can select your favorite images and discuss what you would like to order and print. There are a range of Collections available and an A la Carte option as well.

We all take so many images on our phones these days but what do we do with them? Probably nothing but flick through them occasionally. Why not take this opportunity to get a timeless image of your child and display it in your home to admire every day.

I am happy to travel! Locations beyond 50 km of Sunshine Coast, will incur a nominal travel fee.

Family Storytelling

www.nikkiolivier.com

 I am a relationship based small studio. I have found over the years that the best, and most effective, part of my job is the relationships that I form with the families that I work with. This trust and rapport creates the natural, emotive images that I have become known for. If you're looking for a "one and done" photographer, I’m probably not the right fit for you... but if you're looking for a photographer who will get to know the essence of your child and family over the years, then you've come to the right place.

My Family Storytelling session is a perfect fit for all families and milestones, whether it be a newborn, immediate family, extended family, or anything in between. They include:

  • Pre-session consultation

  • Up to 90 minutes (allow 3 hours for newborns) of shooting of time (at home or on location... somewhere special, or I’ll help you decide!)

  • 25+ ready to print digital images in both color and black & white, and a simple digital download with our printing guide

  • A la carte add ons are available and include our signature wall portraits & coffee table books

  • Full Hair, makeup and Styling is available at an additional investment $150 per family

The beauty of my portrait sessions are that they are completely tailored to your family. With 6 years of experience photographing children of all ages, I know that no two sessions are the same. Some children are quick to warm up, others need time. Some love to be photographed (the more outfit changes, the better!) while others have brief attention spans. I spend just the right amount of time getting to know your family and capturing your children in their most relaxed and natural state.

I am happy to travel! I love the Beach, city, country or any special location... I love it all. Locations beyond 50 km of Sunshine Coast, will incur a nominal travel fee.

Newlife Storytelling

The birth of a child marks a defining moment in your life.  You have a new reason for living. You have a new reason to love.

Newborns are one of my favourite subjects to photograph. They are tiny and precious for only the blink of an eye. In the depth of the first sight of a little baby is reflected the love of his mother, the love of his family. I love telling a story, creating a memory for others to look back on, to reminisce on the best, most memorable moments in life. In sharing my love for light, experience, and photography, I try to slow down, capturing the best moments for each client, making sure every smile, breath, thought, and thrill is caught perfectly in time so that it may be remembered and cherished for times to come.

  • Pre-session consultation

  • Up to 3 hours of shooting time for newborns (at home or on location... somewhere special, or I’ll help you decide!)

  • 25+ ready to print digital images in both color and black & white, and a simple digital download with our printing guide

  • A la carte add ons are available and include our signature wall portraits & coffee table books

  • Full Hair, makeup and Styling is available at an additional investment $150 per family

The beauty of my portrait sessions are that they are completely tailored to your needs and what you are comfortable with. With years of experience photographing newborns and children of all ages, I know that no two sessions are the same.

VIP LIST (portrait membership)

This is Ideal for families - child influences & Small Businesses!

vip list.jpg

Life is busy, I get it! kids grow fast, children want it all and small businesses need a social media presence. As a mother myself, these are two truths we know all too well. Keeping family images up to date, keeping a media profile to showcase your products, while managing busy teens is difficult! The VIP List is my portrait membership program that is designed to make it easy & cost effective to document your family's memories and help you with your online presence.

Over the past few years, I’ve come to find that my clients want their children photographed more than once in a year. Sometimes in a casual way and other times as a portrait. Mapping out an affordable, customizable plan for doing so makes it easier to keep up with your family portraits and media presence, but also allows us to build a relationship with you.

THE VIP LIST combines several sessions & fantastic perks (FREE pop up sessions & digital images, photography workshops & more) over the course of the year, and guarantees advanced, priority booking. Enrollment is open now, and is limited to 10 CLIENTS!

"As soon as I met Nikki I instantly felt like I had know her for years.  She was relaxed and just goes with the flow and she was fantastic with my toddler who turns out doesn't like being in front of the camera.  We did a maternity, fresh 48 and newborn shoot.  All of the images were amazing but I would have to say the rawness of the fresh 48 and in home lifestyle sessions were my favorite.  I was also so shocked when I received my maternity photos as I felt very nervous when we were shooting them, I actually said to my husband I cannot believe how amazing these are, I look so good."All our friends and family love the photographs and are always showing them off.  They are a priceless memory and I cannot thank Nikki enough."

These are the most beautiful portraits of my children I have ever had taken. The session was so relaxed and enjoyable - even for Dan - who usually hates the camera! The photographs are timeless and are a family treasure my children will love when they are grown up. They have traveled the world to my family in South Africa as my family heirloom! I will treasure them forever!!
