What's a design appointment? | Camden Family Photographer

It's a question I'm sure a lot of people are wondering. When you move through the world of digital photography most people assume I'm just going to take a bunch of photos, put them all onto a USB and done. This could not be further from the truth.


Stacey McCarthy Photography is a full service studio, which means when you reach the end of your experience with me you'll walk away with beautiful bespoke artwork that's ready to display in your home. Each image is lovingly edited and perfected before it's sent off to the lab for printing, but before we can get to that it's up to you to decide which images you'd like to have printed. That's where the design appointment comes into it!



Your design appointment is THE best part of the whole portrait experience, and it's exactly what it sounds like! It's when we get together to design the artwork you'd like to keep forever.

At the end of your amazing photo session we'll coordinate our diaries and book in a time for you to come in to the studio to view your finished portraits.


When you arrive at the studio, the lights will be dimmed and the couch will be ready for you to settle in and get comfy. First we'll watch a personalised slideshow of the edited images from your session. This is the first time you'll see your gorgeous photos, and some Mumma's even find this a little bit emotional!



After you've seen your images we'll have a chat about what you'd like to create with them. By now you would've had a chance to flick through our product guide and hopefully you've measured your walls (and sent me a photo of where you'd like to hang them), or maybe you still have no idea, and that's ok too. We'll go through your images together and select your favourites, then I'll help you design the perfect artwork for your home.



After your appointment all of your chosen images will be resized and sent to the lab for production. Orders take around 2-3 weeks to come back from the lab and everything is quality checked by me before you come in to collect your beautiful prints and products.


I absolutely love seeing the look on my clients faces when they come to the studio for collection. It's a part of being a photographer I will never get tired of!
