{ CUSTOM PHOTOGRAPHY }

 

Custom photography is a gift that will last a lifetime.  The moments captured of you, your family, your loved one will help you to remember all the precious details, and all the wonderful memories and emotions that you felt at that stage of your life.

 

Many things play a part in creating and producing lasting images for you and your family.  Each image produced during your session represents hours of preparation and work before, during and after the session.  Each image is a reflection of the many hours spent to learn the craft of photography, countless hours of practice, patience and dedication, thousands of Rands worth of equipment to create the images, to edit and store the images, and time spent away from home to serve my clients with the utmost love and care.  

 

Finally, there are also all the costs involved in running a legitimate business ~ continued upskilling, updating supplies, buying equipment & props, paying taxes, insurance, marketing, and so on.   Each session fee is carefully calculated, taking all of these aspects of custom photography into consideration.

 

{ DEPOSIT / RETAINER FEE }

 A 25% deposit/retainer fee is due at the time of booking to reserve your session date and time.  

The retainer fee is non-refundable.  Bookings will not be confirmed until the deposit has been paid and the
