Here are the available packages:

What to Expect –  The mini sessions will take place in a wooded area with lots of pine trees…the perfect place to find those little fireflies! But I’m pretty sure I’ve never seen a firefly in these parts so we will obviously be pretending… I will add lights to your children’s jar and will Photoshop some other lights in some the images. This is why the session is better for younger children. 🙂

Family sessions will last up to 30 mins and children sessions will be approx 20 minutes.

Pinterest Style Guide – We are going for more of a summery, soft look for these sessions. I would suggest finding outfits for the kiddos first and then build yours and dads outfits around them. Boys should wear denim long pants (rolled up at the ankles) with either no shirt and suspenders/braces or you can add a white or gray vest underneath if they don’t want to do bare skin. Girls will look cute in a simple white/light cream summer dress. I would stay away from patterns but if you can find something with some nice textures, bonus! Mom, you can also wear a simple white or cream dress or even a denim dress. Or just some jeans and a simple white/cream/grey top. Likewise with dad… but he can also wear a striped white & grey top. The idea is to stick with light greys, whites (but not too much), light blues/denim. You could probably throw in a medium brown trouser as well… just as long as everything is coordinated together. 🙂

Please visit the full Pinterest Style Guide here.

Please get me your preliminary outfits by Friday, 29 September latest. 

Location – Hadienga Farm in Olympus, Pretoria East. I will send directions with your confirmation

Viewing/Ordering Sessions:

If you are unsure of which package you would like, you may decide after viewing your images at your viewing/ordering session.  Viewing sessions are available on the 4th & 5th of October in the morning. Please confirm if one of these days is better than the other. If neither work into your schedule, we will make a plan for a different day. 🙂

Please book the date and time of your viewing session when making your booking.

During your viewing/ordering session you will get to see 10 handcraft images from your session, a behind the scenes video of your session as well as the available print & decor products that KG Photography has to offer. You will also need to select the images for your included matte fine art prints and cover of your mini photo box (if applicable). *Please note that your packages include the low resolution files only. In order to control the quality of your final products, all print related materials must be purchased through KG Photography.

If you are planning on purchasing prints for the walls, please bring a few cell snaps of the areas you were wanting to hang prints so I can assist as needed.

Final payment will be due within 48 hours of your viewing session so that I can order everyone’s prints together. Your prints & flash drive of images will come in a nice gift box and will be ready in 3-4 weeks. You will receive an email letting you know that your products are ready for collection.
