Your Portraits of Melbourne Experience 1...2...3
1. PLANNING APPOINTMENT: Every family is unique so we would love to invite you to the studio to meet with Clarke for a casual 15-20 minute chat to discuss how we can create something truly unique for your family. We can discuss things like clothing and props, the best time of day, what you want to do with your portraits, i.e albums, wall art etc and also run you through the process and our pricing in more detail if you wish. Clarke loves to be able to meet as many of the people who will be involved in the shoot as possible, especially the children but it's not compulsory. Make sure you bring your diary so we can book in a time for your shoot.
2. THE SHOOT: This is the fun part! Clarke will often spend a few minutes having a chat and play with the little ones to make sure they feel at ease. Make yourself at home while we talk through some ideas and find out what you brought along with you. Then we’ll spend about an hour creating a series of different images that will tell the story of your family at its beautiful best.
3. ORDERING APPOINTMENT: Seeing your images for the first time can be an emotional experience but a good one – we promise. We highly recommend that all decision makers are present as this is the only time we are able to set aside for you to select your images. Extended family are more than welcome to attend too. After a brief slideshow, we’ll run you through all of our image collections and A la carte pricing and you can choose which images you would like to order. Every printed product that leaves our studio carries a 75 year guarantee so rest assured, your investment will last a lifetime.
FOREVER: A Portraits of Melbourne portrait will last forever! But it is not a once in a lifetime experience. Many of our clients come back for a visit every few years to celebrate the milestones as their families grow and this is one of Clarke's favourite parts of the job. During a babies first 12 months, clients will often visit 3 or 4 times as a part of our ‘Portraits of Melbourne Babes’ program. Whatever the reason is for your visit, we would love to welcome you to the Portraits of Melbourne Family Experience.
