WHY SHOULD I BOOK A FAMILY PHOTO SHOOT WITH KISSCHASEY?
Our photoshoots are a celebration of love. It is an opportunity to be in the moment with your loved ones. Enjoy a couple of hours where all that matters is enjoying each other’s company.
Kisschasey images are windows back in time. You’ll look at that image on the wall and immediately remember how you felt when you first fell in love or when your children were small and did the cutest things!
Each shoot is custom designed, so your family photos will be unique and personal
Our photoshoots are relaxed (but fast-paced), fun, and freeing. Don’t expect any stiff, awkward or unnatural poses. Images are real, spontaneous, and fresh.
You will have a great time!
HOW LONG DOES THE PHOTO SHOOT TAKE?
Sessions generally last 1 to 2 hours. Sometimes we are all done after 45 minutes and get great results. Sometimes everyone is having so much fun that it can go on for several hours. It depends how everyone is feeling on the day! Special wedding packages will provider a photographer for 6 hours or more, to capture the entire story of your day.
WHAT IF MY CHILD IS SICK ON THE DAY OF THE SHOOT?
If someone is sick, we may reschedule. We always reschedule newborn photo shoots if the photographer is ill. For other sessions, rescheduling will be on a case by case basis.
WHAT IF THE WEATHER IS NOT SO AWESOME ON THE DAY?
A little bit of overcast sky is a beautiful and very flattering light, but a downpour, really dark dreary light or howling gales do not generally result in the best images. Unless you love the idea of a fun and funky colourful umbrellas, gumboots, splashing in rain puddles styled session… which could be heaps of fun! It’s up to you. If there is a chance of rain in the forecast, we’ll notify you a day or two before the photo shoot to reschedule.
HOW LONG BEFORE MY IMAGE GALLERY IS READY?
About two weeks after the shoot, I will email you a link to your private online gallery with instructions for how to order your family images
