Here at A Country Tale Photography, I like to do things a little differently. I offer a professional, luxurious and fully personalised service to my clients. From a non-obligatory introductory consultation over coffee, to an in-person reveal of your portraits and hand delivery of your finished beautiful works of art. I am here to make your experience not only an enjoyable one, but as simple as possible.
It all begins with a conversation...
Let's chat and get to know each other! Over a relaxed telephone conversation, tell me a little about yourself and your family. Whether you're expecting a new baby, your precious bundle is a year older, you're desperate to capture the magic of your babies' childhoods before they are gone forever, or it has just been far too long since you had your family portraits taken, I want to share in the excitement with you! Together we will discuss any visions you have for your session and briefly discuss your exciting experience ahead.
Let's continue our conversation over coffee. My treat!
At our completely non-obligatory Introductory Consultation, we will discuss what is to come in a little more detail.
I will bring along samples of the beautiful products that I offer so you can begin to get an idea of how you might like to display your art from your session. Perhaps you have a fire place that would look stunning with a family portrait hanging above it? Or an entry way where you want to be greeted by a beautiful canvas of your family every day. Maybe you want to add more meaning to your nursery wall with some framed maternity portraits? Or perhaps you would like to invest in a beautiful heirloom fine art album that you, your children and your children's children can admire.
If you are unsure, that is ok too! I am here to assist you every step of the way.
If you are unable to meet me for a coffee, I am more than happy to come to your home at a time that is convenient to you.
Prior to your Session
If you have any queries leading up to your session, please do not hesitate to contact me.
One of the most frequently asked questions I hear is "what should we wear?" For my comprehensive What to Wear Guide created just for my clients, please click here. Please feel free to contact me at any stage or send me a photo of your outfits. I have much experience in this area and am more than happy to assist you in any way possible.
Your session will take place in the picturesque Mount Dandenong Ranges. I have many beautiful locations that I like to visit with my clients. If you are interested in having your portraits taken in a particular setting from my portfolio or a certain place that has particular meaning for you in the Dandenong Ranges or the surrounding area, please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss it.
Your session is a time for you and your family to relax and enjoy your time together. Try not to worry about whether your children are smiling at the camera. Just soak up this time together away from the distractions of every day life and allow me to capture some beautiful moments between you and your family.
If you have any meaningful items you would like to have included in your portraits please feel free to bring them along. Whether it be your son's beloved bunny, your daughter's violin or your favourite bouquet of flowers, personal touches can bring something extra special to your portraits.
In-Person Reveal and Ordering Session
Following your session, I will carefully and artfully prepare your portraits for your reveal session. This can take up to three to four weeks as I put a lot of love and time into each individual portrait turning it into a work of art.
Your Reveal and Ordering Session will take place in your home and is an exciting and often emotional time where you will view your beautiful portraits for the first time and select your artwork. I work alongside the absolute best artisans in the Country to ensure that your artwork is of the very best quality to be enjoyed and admired for generations to come.
Hand Delivery and Installation of your Art
Following your reveal I will consult with my professional laboratories to have your portraits turned into finished art.
Your art will be professionally printed and hand made here in Australia to the highest quality. These artisans also have very strict inspection procedures in place to ensure that you will only receive the very best products in your home. As a result, the ordering process can take between six to eight weeks.
Once this process is complete, I will personally hand-deliver your finished art to your home. I also offer an installation service if that is something that you would like assistance with.
To begin your very own luxurious full-service portrait experience, I invite you to please contact me!
I very much look forward to speaking with you!
