We take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone. We take photos to recall- with greater vibrancy- those experiences that have shaped and made us. We take photos to bridge the distance and shorten time, to lend legacy to the little things and life to the forgotten.

Words by Katie Thurmes, Co founder Artifact Uprising.

When booking in your photo session it's not just the photo session that you receive. All clients receive a customised journey from booking phase to gallery delivery and selection phase. Each booking is set up as a contact in my client portal to easily communicate with me and receive files such as contracts and invoices. Client galleries are also delivered via the client portal and the process to choose your favourite images ready to download is seamless.

We discuss locations and styling to best suit you and your family. If you're a beach lover you won't feel at home in a grassy field, the same can be said for a country fam who love nothing more than being on their property with their animals. It's important that you can look back on your images and relive that time in your life with a fondness for the stage you were in.

To book a session simply send me an email with your expression of interest and I will get you started in your client portal. Once your non refundable booking fee has been paid we can start to discuss your chosen date, the best locations for you and go over styling tips. I love assisting at this stage and am always happy to give advice on outfits. I have a small but carefully curated client wardrobe for the Mama's to take some of that stress off choosing an outfit.

Once your session is completed you can look forward to some sneak peeks within the next 48 hours. From there sit tight as I beautifully edit and retouch your images to bring them to life. When your gallery is ready the images will be delivered via your private viewing gallery for you to then choose which package best suits you. Once you have paid your invoice for your chosen package you can then make your selections ready to download.

It's always special to see my work printed by clients. Please reach out with your print needs and we can discuss which options will suit you best.
