Mandurah Portrait Photographer
I’m a Mandurah portrait photographer. I specialise in photographing you and your family and getting your beautiful images on your walls….not left on a CD that lives in your drawer, where no one will ever see them.
Whether you prefer framed portrait pieces or canvas wall art, we’ll work together to photograph the unique connection that is your family, then we’ll create your beautiful wall art.
For me, it’s all about the art of capturing an image of ‘the real you’…the person you are every day, or the people your family are every day. When you can relax and just be yourself in front of the camera, that’s when the magic happens. The focal point of my portrait photography is definitely the eyes….your story is in your eyes.
At Russell Hyde Photography I cater for all your portrait photography needs….from singles, couples and families…to corporate headshots. I don’t have a lot of experience with late term pregnancies or newborns, but I’m always open to new challenges.
Your portrait session is all about creating those timeless memories of yourself and your family. Kids grow up so fast, so capturing your family as they develop from babies to kids, to teenagers to adults, then to seeing them with their own family, is an ongoing series of life events that deserves to be recorded. A photograph is a truly wonderful gift to share with your family, friends and loved ones.
For your portrait session, I offer you the flexibility of either working in my home studio, or I can bring my studio equipment to your home. If you’d rather an outdoor setting for your portrait session, I’m sure there’s some really cool places that are close by.
If you are looking for a present for that ‘hard to buy for’ family member or friend, how about a Gift Voucher. Gift Vouchers can be purchased here.
To ensure your portrait photography session goes smoothly, I have a simple 4 step process to guide you all the way from your initial contact with me, to delivery of your framed portrait pieces and canvas wall art…
- Your Booking & Consultation Session
- Your Portrait Session
- Your Review and Ordering Session
- Delivery of your Prints and Canvas Wall Art
1. Your Booking & Consultation Session
When you Get in Touch to enquire about booking your portrait session, we’ll initially chat on the phone, then ideally, catch up for a coffee, so we can talk through our 4 steps, which ensures you get the most out of your portrait session.
2. Your Portrait Session
Typically, your portrait session can last from 45 minutes to 2 hours, and in that time, we will photograph a series of poses, props and outfits to find what works best for you and your family. If you have your own ideas for your portrait session, or want to bring your own props, that’s great. I will work with you to ensure we capture ‘the real you’. If you’re wondering what to wear to your portrait session, see some ideas here.
At Russell Hyde Photography, I charge a session fee of $150 per hour and this covers our consultations, your portrait session and my time to cull and edit the images, in preparation for your Review and Ordering Session.
3. Your Review & Ordering Session
At the end of your portrait session, we’ll pick a time for you to review your edited images….typically within 7 days of your session. I’ll bring your images to your home and we can view them via the USB connection on your TV.
I will also bring sample heirloom quality leather albums, sample boards that show my various print and canvas wall art sizes, so you can see which size works best in your home. Once we’ve looked at the various sizes available, and even measured up your walls to see which size framed prints or canvas wall art fits best in your home, you will be able to place your order.
It’s important that all those involved in the decision making process, are present at your review and ordering session.
Prints can be ordered framed or unframed…so if you choose the framed option, then when I deliver your prints and canvas wall art, they’re ready to hang proudly on your walls.
I believe your images should be proudly displayed around your home, on your mantel piece, or in your office…to be seen and admired by everyone.
