Daycare & Kindy portraits can be an exciting time for both children and parents. What better way to raise funds for your centre than to offer your families beautifully captured professional photos of their child(ren) interacting and engaged with your staff & learning programs.
I provide professional portrait photography services to Daycare centres, Kinder’s, Pre Schools & Play Group’s across Melbourne, this includes annual individual photos, sibling photos as well as group photos, staff photos & facilities photos.
My portrait work has been acknowledged both Nationally and Internationally and was recently a published feature in CaptureMag. I am also an accredited member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers.
I offer so much more than just being a photographer, I give you my personality, my love and joy for capturing children doing what kids do, I invest so much effort in my time with you, I take time to know your children and staff, I work in unison with you. I am not a stuffy photographer with an overly polished ego, I am a mum first and I share that with your centre and believe this is truly reflected in the images I offer your parents.
I float around and monitor what is unfolding naturally, it might be a child fiddling with buttons on their jacket, or kicking up some mud in the yard, or building a sand cake, cutting with scissors and sticking with paste. I’ll also capture them sprinting around like a gazelle in the Serengeti if your yard is big enough!
I ask your children questions about what they are doing, I engage by subtly including myself in their learning or play space, I speak with educators and understand which children may be shy and anxious and carefully navigate these emotions to gain trust.
Once children are comfortable with my presence, I get a bit silly with them, I take them on an adventure in the yard, or they take me on one! Any interaction I have with the children is to spark their imagination, get their silly’s happening and most of all, make it an enjoyable experience for them.
I work around the centre’s time keeping, so there are no interruptions to schedules and as I work throughout the centre everyday during my time, all children will be captured at least once every day I am there, so parents get a great deal of variety in the photographs I present to them.
