Your Initial Consultation
In your initial consultation, we’ll establish your goals for the shoot, and look to organise a suitable date and time for your portrait. Each portrait session is individually customised to truly capture the essence of you and your family. You may already have a feel for what you prefer — we’re here to provide as much guidance as you need.
We will listen to you and discuss:
- Your Family Dynamic — so we understand who you all are as individuals.
- Photography Options — to understand your personal preferences, likes and dislikes, in order to suggest a style which matches your home furnishings.
- Product Options — we’ll outline our wide range of portrait options, including framed prints, premier wall art options, canvases, albums, and collection sets. Knowing what you’re looking for helps us to deliver a range of shots you’ll love.
- Preparing for your session — we’ll tell you what to expect on the day, advise on clothing, and confirm with you what you’ll be doing.
Prior to the Portrait Session
We’ll send you an email reminder 2-3 days prior to your portrait session outlining important details such as where we’ll meet you, what to wear, what to bring, and our on day the day requirements. We’re only a phone call or email away should you wish to further discuss or fine-tune any aspect of your portrait sitting.
Prior to your shoot, we’ll also need to confirm who will be in attendance so we can ensure you’re matched with the perfect sized studio and photographer for your family dynamics.
What to wear? We’ve also put together a helpful checklist on what to wear!
On the Day
During the shoot, our goal is to make you feel at home, welcomed, and relaxed. Our team is highly experienced in working with people of all ages and backgrounds.
Your photography session will last up to an hour and can include as many family members as you like. We will take a variety of shots including individual portraits, couples, siblings, grandparents, and various combinations. Let us know which relationships are particularly important, so that we capture the full range of images you desire.
A Studio for all Families
We’re parent and kid friendly!
We know how tricky it can be to bring the little ones – so have quiet areas and some toys to keep the kids occupied, along with private spaces for nursing.
We are conveniently located just a few doors away from Academic Dress Hire, who offer a complimentary extension on regalia hire to graduates purchasing a Timeless Images portrait package.
For your beauty makeover we can make it an intimate shoot focused just on you; or you’re welcome to bring your close friends and loved ones for a day you’ll always remember.
Bring your pets!
We love including your furry companions in family photos. Please make sure you confirm with us prior to arrival if you are bringing along your furry family member to your shoot.
Our purpose-fitted, highly-respected photographic studio in Newmarket, Auckland offers the perfect environment for our customers and photographers to achieve fantastic results. Our inside studio means flexibility — no matter what the weather is like. No rain or wind in your hair! Our studio also has a variety of backdrops to suit more formal or classical style photography. Studio sessions provide:
- More of a focus on the people as there is less distraction in the background
- In-studio lighting provides a variety of lighting settings – varied and dynamic lightning for added interest and clarity
- Not weather dependent for a safe, guaranteed shoot appointment.
We use only the best camera equipment available (the latest Canon 5Ds, with a selection of fully-professional lenses) to ensure your images are incredibly sharp.
Health and Safety
We take the health and safety of our staff and clients very seriously. We stay up to date and adhere to health requirements as advised by the New Zealand Government. All our staff at the studio are double vaccinated and boosted, and we practice good health, hygiene, regular premises cleaning, sanitizing, and ensure physical distancing. All visitors can scan in using the NZ COVID Tracer app.
Following your portrait sitting, your final images will each be digitally enhanced with our natural style of editing. Rest assured that we will retouch distractions, tastefully minimise blemishes and skin discoloration to make sure you all look your best. The end result is an authentic image that is true to you. For clients interested in more extensive editing, we are happy to recommend a professional retouching service. Or if you’re after an organic feel, we also offer minimal or no editing if you prefer a natural look.
The Ordering Session
Here’s the exciting bit! We’ll showcase up to 40 of the best photographs on our projection system so that you can choose the images you love and want to take home.
We’ll show you different presentation options from our wide range of albums, box sets and frames – and help you to decide on your final product selection. The Presentation Session is the time to have the decision maker/s in the room. If you’re on your own feel free to bring a friend.
For ease of convenience, we also offer this service via Zoom.
As a business we’ll provide you with as much transparency as possible. In an industry where this is rare, we’re proud our clients continually come back to us and value the work that we do.
Prices start at just $195 for a 5×7 inch print mounted in a matboard, ranging up to our premium grande art (size of a door) at $4000. A reasonable sized frame or canvas is approximately $1,500. We find most customers spend between $1,500 – $2,500 however this is entirely up to you. You can buy a single photograph or many lovely shots!
