“This is more than just a photo shoot, its the completely exclusive custom photography experience.”

At Desire To Inspire Photography Studio we want to make sure that we capture your families quirky personalities and style that is so you. We want to  give you the best photography experience and wall art to display in your home, the kind of beauty that you have always wanted. Everything that you need to know about your Portrait Experience is listed below.

We will be spending approximately 5 – 8 hours with each family. This includes everything from our initial phone calls to plan the shoot, the shoot itself, editing your images, the design/viewing appointment, retouching your images, production, all the way through to you collecting your one-of-a-kind art work to display proudly in your home.

Please be sure to check out the snippet of our studio tour to the left here. Please read the following 6 steps below.

Please consider terms and conditions and see FAQ prior to booking your session.


Step 1 – Book your session

Sessions are available from Monday to Friday beginning at 930am with the last appointment at 2:30pm. Saturday appts are by approval only if required.

Also be aware of working schedules and sleep/feed time for younger members of the family. If older siblings can be looked after so you can come and enjoy the experience it makes it alot easier and less stressful for you. Please check with your entire family that will be included to arrange a suitable time and then contact us to arrange your session.

A session fee is required to secure your booking into our diary. This covers the loss of the appointment session and/or design appointment and your photographer’s time.

Step 2 – Before your session

Now you’re on the website, make sure you watch the studio tour and portfolio slideshow videos for some inspiration and to get a clearer idea of what to bring and what to wear.

Our pre-shoot questionnaire will be sent to you via email, and all you need to do is take a few minutes to fill it out. Your photographer will then contact you 2-3 days prior to your shoot and will guide you the rest of the way. You will also receive a range of emails leading up to your booked session date which will guide you through some frequently asked questions, some important information and some handy tips.

What style are you?  Colourful, Fine Art, Neutrals, Outdoorsy / Nature. Most people are more than 2.

What do I have to bring? Bring any special items that maybe heirlooms or have special meaning to you and your family eg beautiful hand knitted blankets or anything you may want to match a certain theme.

What do I have to wear? Think about where in the home the wall art is going and what style you have chosen. The colours and design of your clothes with help define the style and location of the artwork. We have several beautiful dresses and gowns for mums to wear that look stunning as you will see in many photos on here. We also offer a large range of Dollcake dresses in a large array of sizes for your beautiful daughters, as well as for mum herself. We do ask you to avoid loud prints and clashing colours.
