what to expect from your session
the pre-session consultation
The pre-consultation answers ALL your questions and helps us get to know your family. Tell us your goals for having professional photos of your children taken and how you envision seeing the final result. We will go through the flow of events for the day and find out any additional details or activities that will help us make the session a smoother process. Browse our birthday party gallery and recent sessions to get a good feel of what we offer.
After a date is selected, you will be asked to fill out a client questionnaire/agreement and submit your booking fee which acts as a retainer to hold your date and time slot.

during the session
A typical birthday celebration takes place at a cafe, function room, or kid's playhouse. Some clients may even choose to hold parties in their own home for the added personal touch. Parties can range from small private sessions with only close family members and friends, to bigger scaled ones involving the children's classmates and teachers.
Larger celebrations tend to involve additional fringe activities such as a kid's magician, balloon sculpting, face painting, science experiments for extra entertainment etc. Cake-cutting normally takes place sometime in the middle of the party. It is advisable to do the family and group shots during this time as all guests and children should be present. It will be close to impossible to get hold of them again after this instance, especially if the party is held at a playhouse where the children are free to roam!
During the party, just allow your children’s personalities to shine through and be themselves! The session is all about capturing them in their natural environment with genuine emotions and interaction with other kids/guests. No one will be told to sit still and pose for the camera (unless the situation calls for it)!
The final product will be ready in 1-2 weeks. We will get in touch and make arrangements for you to take home the final result. Enjoy each and every smile, tear and laughter, for these are precious moments of your precious kids —the ones who grow too fast and whom you will cherish forever.
But that's not the end! Birthdays are considered the biggest milestones in a child's life. As children grow and change so quickly, many parents return again and again for subsequent birthdays so they can document their growing up process, and build on to what we have already created for them in previous sessions. Photographs of our loved ones play such an important part in our lives because it brings us back to a time that can never be repeated, and they increase in value exponentially with every passing year!
