Step 1 – Book your session

Sessions are available from Tuesday to Saturday beginning at 10am with the last appointment at 4:00pm (3pm on Saturdays). Please be advised, Saturday slots are very popular and fill up early.

Please check with your entire family to arrange a suitable time for your session and keep in mind the sleep/feed times for younger members of the family.

Unless you have a gift voucher, the €100 shoot fee is paid at the time of booking your appointment. 

Step 2 – Your Planning Session

Now you’re on the website, make sure you watch the studio tour and portfolio section for some inspiration and to get a clearer idea of what type of images appeal to you and some pointers on what to wear.

Our pre-shoot planning session usually takes about 15 minutes. At this meeting we can discuss in detail exactly what your would like to focus on during your photo shoot.

Clothing; We will show you a whole section of clothing ideas to help you decide on what to wear where you will see what works and what might be best to avoid.

In Person or Online; The best option is to come in to the studio for an in-person planning session, but if you can’t do this, we can do an online session instead. We use Teamviewer to share our screen with you, so you will have to download and install a little piece of software to be able to do this. (Most companies will not allow you to do this at work, so a home computer or personal laptop will be needed. It doesn’t work with phones or iPads)


Step 3 – Your Photography Session

This is where the fun really begins. We will customise your session and create amazing images that really capture your family’s personalities. We schedule one hour for your photography experience, but most sessions only take between 30 and 40 minutes. We tend to work quickly, especially with young children, as you’re never sure how long you have them before they decide they’ve had enough.

Children love being photographed and to get the those natural, open expressions, we make it a fun filled enjoyable experience for the whole family. Although some adults come in feeling like they’re going to the dentists, when they leave they always say how much they enjoyed it.


Step 4 – Your Design & Ordering Appointment

This is where it all comes together. 2-8 days after your photography session you will return to view your images on our 60” screen in our viewing room. Relax with a coffee while we show you all the amazing memories that are now captured forever.

We will help you every step of the way to select your favorite images and turn them into timeless and original pieces of wall art, each tailored to suit your homes style and design.

All of your artwork comes finished and ready for display, with a range of products to suit everyone’s style and budget. Our framed portraits start at €150. Wall art starts from €295.

See Finished Products for further information.


Step 5  – Pick up your Artwork

Your finished wall art and albums will be ready to be collected from the studio approximately 4 weeks after your design appointment. The artwork is made with the highest quality products available to the photography industry and all come with a lifetime guarantee on craftsmanship.

As soon as the images are ready to be collected you will be contacted by one of the team to arrange a time to collect your artwork.


Step 6  – Display your Artwork

We love creating amazing images for you and the family. The artwork looks amazing at our studio but it looks even better when it’s displayed in your own home!

We’d love to see it too! Make sure you take a photo of your artwork and send it to our email
