For the more discerning client who doesn't like to be rushed, wants
the time for creative control, wants to be able to choose what is
printed and wants to choose a mutually suitable shoot time and date,
a private session at my Chadstone home studio may be answer. For
only $500.00, my private sessions offer you so
much more than you can get in a family portrait fundraising session.
You are also welcome to combine with other family members or friends
to get the best value out of your session. It's your hour to choose
what you want to do and I can photograph up to 10 average sized
adults plus about three to five small children in one portrait.
Gift certificates are available - great for a birthday or
What this $500.00 session includes: -
- 1 hour of my time.
- Up to eight different poses.
- You get to view the portraits on my computer after the session
and choose which ones you want printed.
- Ten 8" x 10" prints (you can replace any 8" x
10" with two 5" x 7" prints if you prefer)
- Other sizes available upon request - extra costs will apply
but these will be at professional photo lab retail rate only.
- Free portrait enhancements (blemish and wrinkle removal, expression
transplants) within reason upon request which can be done while you watch so
you will know how the end portrait will look.
- CD and full copyright of all shots taken during the session.
Very competitively priced frames can be purchased separately –

Payment can be made by cash, cheque or direct
deposit (bank details supplied upon request)
Bookings can be made for Monday to Friday any time from 10am-6pm
(yes, you can book your session to start at 6pm with a finish time
of 7pm). Saturday mornings are also available but a $25
surcharge applies unless purchasing a gift certificate or pre-paying
by one of the above options.
Under special circumstances such as family members who are unable to travel for whatever reason, I am willing to come to you for your portrait session if your home has a room large enough to accommodate my photography set up and if you live within half an hour of Chadstone for an extra fee of $100. An extra $20 Etag charge will apply if I have to use Citylink to get to you.
All bookings incur a $50 booking fee which is refundable right up until noon the day before your shoot. Should you cancel on the shoot day, your deposit will be forfeited. Should your shoot go ahead, the booking fee will be taken off the entire cost quoted depending on your particular requirements.
NOTE: - Past clients automatically receive a $50 discount.
I have a record of EVERY family I have EVER photographed. If you
