E X P E R I E N C E
From the initial consultation right through to collecting your artwork, I want to make sure that your experience with Stacey McCarthy Photography is a memorable one.
Your session is tailored to suit you and your family to ensure that the artwork you take home is something your family will truly treasure for generations.
I've broken down the process into 5 easy to follow steps so you always know what's going to happen next.
STEP 1 - BOOK YOUR SESSION
You've chosen me to photograph your precious family, so let's get you booked in! Fill in my contact form and I can check availability around your due date. Your session fee is payable to secure your booking.
For newborn sessions I will pencil you in based on your due date. Once you notify me that baby has arrived we will schedule a date and time for you to come into the studio.
STEP 2 - BEFORE YOUR SESSION
Once we have you booked in I will send you a contract and questionnaire to fill in. Your questionnaire will help me customise your session to suit your style and give me an idea of what you are hoping to do with your finished portraits so I can plan your session.
A few days before your session I'll send you a session planning guide which has some tips on what to wear and how to prepare for the day of your session.
STEP 3 - DURING YOUR SESSION
The studio is warm and cozy and there is a sofa for you to sit back and relax! We will run through a few different set-ups as well as parents and sibling shots. I will work with baby on what is comfortable for them.
There is always plenty of time for cuddles and extra feeds so don't stress if baby is a little bit fussy to begin with. As for wee's and poo's, these happen sometimes too. As a newborn photographer it's all part of the job. Everything is cleaned and sanitised after each session, so there is literally nothing you can do but laugh!
Family sessions always start with me getting to know the kids and letting them get used to me. This makes it easier for everyone to relax a little. Families, kids, couples, we will capture it all!
STEP 4 - THE DESIGN APPOINTMENT
This is the fun part! Approximately 2-3 weeks after your session you will come back to the studio for your design appointment. This is when you get to see all of your fully edited images in a beautiful slideshow. From here you select your favourites, and together we will design your artwork.
All orders are finalised and paid for at your design appointment so for this reason I do ask that all financial decision makers attend the appointment. I have a range of different payment options available including cash, eftpos and interest free payment plans.
STEP 5 - COLLECTING YOUR ARTWORK
Your beautiful artwork will be ready for collection from the studio around 3-4 weeks after your design appointment. As soon as everything has arrived I will give you a call to organise a pick up time.
Wall art pieces come complete and ready to hang. Canvases come with a 75 year guarantee while all other products carry a 30 year guarantee, so you know you have purchased quality that will stand the test of time.
When you have hung your artwork I'd love for you to send me a photo. I love seeing your beautiful portraits in your home!
