THE EXPERIENCE

The Creative Images Photography experience

Creative Images celebrates families as they are - ever-growing, ever-changing and always unique.

Take time to mark the big moments, but also recognise the spaces between, those ordinary yet important events that bring your family even closer together.

With Creative Images Photography, you'll receive:

  • A personal consultation at the studio
  • A bespoke portrait photography session on location or at the studio
  • A second appointment within a few days of the session for viewing the images and purchasing your chosen portraits
  • Collection of your finished artwork - be it wall art, gift prints or albums

When you book

A deposit of $150 is payable when you book, which secures the date and goes towards your final order.

The Portrait Session

Getting ready for your viewing appointment

The viewing appointment is when you place and pay for your order, so please allow plenty of time for this. (1-1.5 hours is a good guide) Please note that all decision-makers must attend at least both the consultation and viewing/purchasing appointment.

It can be really helpful to take some photos of the areas in your home where you are planning to display your portraits, just a few pics on your phone will do! It's also worth measuring those walls so that we can choose frame sizes that best suit the room.

If you have young children we recommend that you arrange for a babysitter so that you enjoy the viewing experience and ordering process without distractions.

Your Investment

Our portraits range from $200 each for our smaller gift prints. As a general guide many families spend between $1000-$3000 on their portrait collection with some investing more and some less.  We talk through all other options when you visit the studio for your initial consultation. We try to cater to everyone's needs - feel free to ask about payment plans.

Do you offer gift vouchers?

How much do family portraits cost?

We tailor our portrait sessions to suit most client's budgets. Our portraits range from $200 each for our smaller gift prints. As a general guide many families spend between $1000-$3000 on their portrait collection with some investing more and some less. We'll talk through all othe options when you visit the studio for your initial consultation. We try to cater to everyone's needs - feel free to ask about payment plans.

Who should come to the consultation and viewing/ordering appointments?

It's really important that all decision-makers attend both these appointments. We want you to enjoy the viewing experience so allow plenty of time - between 1-1.5 hours. We also suggest that you arrange babysitters if you have children so you can make your decisions in a relaxed environment.

My partner can't make it - can I come by myself to the consultation or viewing?

It's really important that all decision-makers attend both these appointments. I like to meet everyone I'm going to photograph so that we're not strangers at the photography session. The viewing is equally important as you'll find it very difficult to make major decisions without your partner to discuss the various options with. If you or your partner can't make it for any reason then please let us know as soon as possible and we'll re-schedule to a later time or day.

When are you open?

We are open by appointment. We are usually available between 9am and 5pm Mon - Fri and often on Saturday - however please phone or text first to book your preferred time as Bryan is often out photographing. 

Can you photograph our family outside of Christchurch?

Yes, Bryan is happy to travel nationwide to capture you and your family in your own backyard, so do ask if there is somewhere that's special for you.

What should we wear for the portrait session?

The clothing you choose to wear has a major influence on the look of your portraits, so we'll talk about this at your consultation.

What can we do with the images we purchase?

Everything from custom framing and canvas wall art to gift prints and gorgeous photo books. This is all covered at the consultation and again at the ordering appointment when Bryan will help you decide what sizes and styles will best suit your images, wall space, taste and budget.

How long does it take to complete our order?

At Creative Images everything is custom made, and we pride ourselves with producing the best quality art works for you. With larger orders please allow 4-6 weeks. If you need something sooner just ask and we'll do what we can to help. December is one of our busiest times however we can still complete gift prints if they are ordered by around mid December and have them ready for you by Christmas.

How do we know we'll like the portraits you take?

With over 25 years experience and thousands of happy clients we guarantee you'll love the images we take of you and your family.
