Hello Maroubra East Families

I'm thrilled to be taking fine art portraits of your little ones at Maroubra East on 25 and 28 September, and 1 October.

Please see the FAQs below for further details. 

FAQs

1. What are fine art photos ?

​Fine art school portraits are a modern approach to school photos. I use a black background to keep the photos simple and classic. My aim on the day is to take fun, natural and relaxed portraits of your child(ren). To capture their natural expressions each child is encouraged to simply be themselves. Some children smile lots, others are more serious.

2. When is photo day?

​This year I will photograph the children as follows:
 

  • Friday, 25 September – Nursery:

    • 8.00 – 10.00 am: individual photos and sibling photos 

    • 10.00 am: group photo.
       

  • Monday, 28 September – Toddler:

    • 8.00 – 10.00 am: individual photos and sibling photos 

    • 10.00 am: group photo 
       

  • Thursday, 1 October – Preschool:

    • 8.00 – 10.00 am: individual photos and sibling photos 

    • 10.00 am: group photo.

Sibling photos will be taken on the day scheduled for individual portraits for the oldest sibling. For example, if you have a pre-schooler and toddler, their sibling photos will be taken on Thursday.

3. What should my child(ren) wear?

​The most important thing is that your child(ren) wears something that they are comfortable in and that makes them feel good. Solid colours work well, and it is best to avoid graphics, logos and neon colours. Photos are generally taken from the waist up.

4. How does the process work?

Approximately five weeks after photo day I will email you a link to an online gallery of images of your child(ren) and the group photos that they are in. There will be approximately five images of each child plus any sibling images. All individual and sibling images are provided in both colour and black and white.

 

You will be able to order and pay for packages, prints and digitals directly through the gallery link. You will have seven days to place your order.

 

There are step by step instructions on the ordering process below (9. How do I order?). 

 

Your orders will be delivered to Maroubra East as soon as they are ready.

8. What have others said about working with me?

"We are so delighted with the photos you took of the boys. This is our first time having any professional photos taken and all my fears about contrived, stilted shots were baseless. You have perfectly captured their personalities and the quality of the images is just stunning. I'm completely blown away. Thank you so much Afton, you're a talented lady."

-Pip-

"This has captured one of Bronte's little milestones in life which is her first year at pre school, there were so many beautiful photos to choose from, I was blown away by all the amazing pictures, I would recommend Afton Fife Photography to any parents wanting to get their children’s school photos taken."

-Kayla-

 

"We are so happy with the lovely prints we received from Afton. Our daughter looks happy and natural, just the type of images we were hoping for. Thanks Afton for capturing her cheeky grin and getting her to smile!"
