Before & After:
To some folks, €150 for a photo session with your little one(s) may sound expensive – so we’d like to show you what you get for your hard-earned money!
We come to your home, with our professional equipment, there are two of us. We bring our lights, backgrounds, cameras and props, all of which cost money to purchase, maintain, repair and replace! We keep our overheads down because we don’t have to pay rent or rates, as we don’t operate from a premises, so we pass the savings on to you – if we had those bills to pay, we’d need to charge a lot more.
We’re friendly and spend time building a rapport with you and your little ones, we play with the children and get them interested in what we’re doing while we set up. Because we’ve come to your home, you haven’t had to bundle them into the car in the rain, drive to a location and hope that they don’t play up when you get to the studio! They’re not in a strange environment and something as simple as a mission to bring us their favourite toy or help us carry one of the props from the van can open dialogue with them.
We don’t just ‘snap’ the ‘pics’ and then upload them and charge you an arm and a leg for prints. Your session includes 3 free prints, because your beautiful photos belong on the wall in your home, not stored on a USB or CD! If you don’t want to purchase any more, that’s okay – if you do, we’re very reasonable on price. Purchasing a disc with available images costs you just €50 and generally contains around 10 high quality, professionally retouched images, sometimes more. We inject humour and imagination into the photos if that’s what you’d like to see, or we can simply leave the photos finished with basic development.
We’re flexible – we work all hours, every day of the year (except Dec. 25th!) – if a Sunday is what suits you, then it suits us too. If we arrive and your little one is having a terrible day, then we can come back another day – we don’t charge you twice, we only charge you for travel!
Most importantly, we’re bitten (or gummed!), we’re pooped on, we often go home smelling of sour milk. We’ve been wee-weed on. We’ve waited hours to take the perfect photos when waiting for someone to have a nap, a snack or a ‘moment’. We love what we do, we love being welcomed to your home, chatting about our work over a coffee and most of all we love delivering finished photos to you and when we can, we’ll do so in person. Take a look below to see how it is that we do what we do, what we start with and where your picture finishes up and some of the giggles that can be had during your session!
Why not give us a call and experience it for yourself? We can cater for two families in one home too, so you can spread the cost between you!
