ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT A KAPTURE PHOTOGRAPHY FAMILY PORTRAIT BUT DIDN’T KNOW WHAT TO ASK
So you are interested in a Portrait Session with Kapture Photography? Nice move! We already think you’re AWESOME & have good taste!
This following info should give you a good feel of what we do here at Kapture photography, what a session with us is REALLY like and how to plan the PERFECT artwork for your home.
And there’s that price thing … cause I know you want to know that.
Who is this Karen anyway?
Tiny, innocent, precious babies *squeal* who doesn’t love them? Hand me a cute chubba bubba and a camera and I’m happy! I’m truly passionate about helping families kapture special moments in time and create lasting, beautiful artwork they’ll forever cherish.
I LOVE what I do. Since 2004, I’ve photographed over 900 new Melbourne babies – that’s a lot of chubby adorableness! I’ve always been artistic; I took painting and drawing classes professionally for 15 years. But it’s photography that gives me the perfect creative output; I like to talk A LOT and family photography lets me do that. In fact, clients often tell me how much they’ve learned while having their photos taken. And they usually ask if I can pop round at four in the morning to help settle their restless baby. I really wish I could!
I like to share my passion and knowledge, so I’m also a photography teacher and mentor. And I’m always taking training courses to hone my craft, stay on point with the safety side of things and keep up to date with tech from the likes of Apple, Nikon and Adobe Photoshop.
When I’m not helping families make memories, I’m playing with my own two kids who sure know how to keep me on my toes!
Here is what we DON’T do
Here is what we DO do
How we avoid those awkward family photos from the start
I’m a bit CRAZY when it comes to photography … I believe the BEST family portraits actually have NOTHING to do with the photography and everything to do with the family.
Yes! I am talking about YOU.
That’s why each Portrait kicks off WELL BEFORE way before the camera even comes out. We start with a chat so I can find out more about you and what makes your family tick – what you love to do, places you love to go, the unique relationships within the family.
Consider your Portrait Session a COLLABORATION where we work together to mash that all up and design a session that is all about YOU … and less about me and the camera.
The end result is the most AMZING photographs you will ever own and Dads who realise “well that wasn’t as bad as I thought”!
To get you booked in, we start with a Standard Portrait Session Fee of $130 to secure your date in our calendar.
Evening, Outdoors and Saturday Sessions are $200
Your Session Fee is due at the time of booking and covers your Planning Session (where we get to know you), Photo Shoot (let’s create awesome photography together) and a personalised Purchasing Session (where we plan what you’re going to do with the photos).
*If you have been lucky enough to score a special offer from us, your Session Fee is probably included! You may still have to pay a small non-refundable Confirmation Fee to book your session in. If in doubt, please check with us.
It’s All About Artwork, Prints & Digitals
Over the last 20 years we have tested soooo many ways of displaying photography and artwork.
And we believe, hands down, the best way to enjoy your photos is up on a wall … imagine your Walls FILLED with happy family memories and milestones that bring you joy every time you look at them.
But Wall Art doesn’t suit everyone!
Owning a Digital Collection (the blueprints of those happy memories) may be more your jam so you can share them with family and friends or create your own artwork.
So we do both options.
Most families kick off with a Digital File Collection and use the attached Album or Wall Art Credit towards something special for the wall.
Other families aren’t that fussed about the files and jump straight into the wall art and matted fine art prints.
Basically … we have something to suit all styles, budgets and what you plan to do with your photos.
Digital File Collections

Top 4 – $790
