WHAT TO EXPECT
Before, During and After your Session with Nikki
BEFORE THE SESSION
The first question Nikki will ask you are what are your hopes and dreams for this session? What is it about your children that you want to remember 20 years from now and HOW do you want to remember it? In an album that can be handed down from generation to generation, in a wall portrait that will make you smile every single day? From there, we will work together to choose a location and wardrobe to achieve that vision.
Once a date is selected, you will be asked to fill out a client questionnaire/agreement and submit your session fee which covers Nikki's time at the session and acts as a retainer to hold your date.
ON LOCATION SESSIONS
Outdoor sessions take advantage of the incredible natural beauty of the Sunshine Coast and surrounding areas. We generally schedule these shoots during the “golden hour” about 1.5 hours before sunset when the light is soft and lovely. This timing may not be ideal for families of young children depending on time of year. Well shaded locations are ideal for morning sessions with small children.
Nikki has several gorgeous go-to locations that she can suggest during the consultation stage. Beach sessions are popular but wind and sand are not a great combination especially for small children. For at home lifestyle images time of day will be decided based on the best light for the home.
DURING THE SESSION
Let your story unfold…Expect to have fun, be silly, giggle and just be yourselves and let your children’s personalities shine through. Nikki will give you gentle prompts and direction to elicit genuine emotion and interaction. We may dance, jump, scream, tell secrets and jokes – the goal is to capture your families genuine personality. No one will be told to sit still and say cheese at a lifestyle session!
AFTER THE SESSION
During the ordering appointment you will view a slideshow of all the image set to music and Nikki will be there to answer any questions you may have throughout the selection process. Packages are designed to best represent your images. Beautifully designed coffee table story books or prints are available. All inclusive packages that are pre-purchased are personally delivered or posted to your door.
