AN OVERVIEW OF MY SESSIONS & PRICES

 

Photography sessions take place at my private, comfortable studio with access to my unique prop collection or at a venue of your choice when we do an outdoor session.

The Creative fee is non-refundable and is required 24 hours after scheduling the session date to secure my availability for your session – it covers my time and talent prior, during and after your session as well as the view, design and ordering appointment. No digital or print products included with the creative fee.

Mari Scheepers Photography offers the highest quality Acrylic, Canvas, Wood wall art Prints, Acrylic tiles, Albums and Photo boxes to preserve your Family’s precious memories.

High quality edited digital image collections or packages are purchased after the session at the view, design and ordering appointment. Additional print products can only be purchased in addition to collections or packages from an a la carte menu. You don’t have to commit to purchasing anything in advance, I have no minimum spend and you don’t have to make any decisions until you view your images at the view, design and ordering appointment about 2-3 weeks after your session.

There’s something to suit varying styles and budgets and payment plans are also available.

WHY PRINT WITH ME

 

I am a custom newborn and family portrait photographer and

I believe an image is not an image until its printed...

Therefor I have sourced the best Photographer's Pro-lab in Australia to do my image prints, wall art and albums to ensure that you get the best coloured image and quality in products. This also mean that I edit my images to their printing calibration standards. When you print your images at another lab it might just not look and print the same as I would with my Pro-lab.... so best is to invest in a quality product and you will know that you will get a perfect-coloured print!


So, when you decide to invest in my service... we custom design your images so we can create the perfect wall art prints and albums for your home to celebrate YOUR family with prints that will last...

Not sure yet...here another reason...

 

 

WHY SELECT ME AS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER

So, you would love beautiful images and wall art of your family but.... you know your busy kids would most probably not listen or sit still for 2 seconds! 

No problem! I have loads of experience with kids...

apart from my own kids, I have work with many families!

Fist there is always a plan...I work around them...we focus on their needs first!

We are patient... but at the same time we work fast as their concentration only last about 30 min!

We do fun...And we get the good images!

It might be an easy session or it might not... but in the end there is nothing more I would like to do than capture what you love... so you can treasure those fast-changing little faces and moments forever!

BUT and there is always a but... 

Coase yes, it can be perfect always...so let say sometimes there is that little one that just won't play along as it is not their day today... no worries...because I am so determined to get good images of your family to treasure for always... so if I feel that today is just not their day, I will reschedule the session at no additional cost to you! This is my guarantee to you...

 

MY GUARANTEE

If for some reason I know I did not get good images on the day, I will reschedule at no additional cost to you...

If your child get sick, you can reschedule the session....’cause it happens

If after the session you don't like the images, you don't have to take anything... 

You can invest in as little or as many images/products you want after the session no minimums required

If you decide to invest more that you wanted to... we can work out a payment arrangement!

So... let me capture what you love…

PRODUCT QUALITY

For CANVAS wall art my prolab printers use high quality colour inks imported from the United States. They offer an excellent colour gamut (range of colours) and resistance to fading. They have been independently tested by the Wilhelm Institute to last up to 75 years before noticeable fading.

They use a beautiful canvas sourced from the United States. It is an archival, acid-free matte canvas. It is smooth, bright white and offers excellent reproduction for wall art. Their canvas showcases exceptionally dense black and colours, is water resistant and is used by thousands of artists around the world.

It is significantly heavier than the canvas being used by many of our competitors. Lighter grade canvases are generally cheaper to make, but are usually of lesser quality.

 I also offer an unconditional guarantee on the canvas prints!

In the event that you accidentally damage your print (i.e., scratch, tear, drop) then an identical print will be remade for you at absolutely no cost to you (excluding freight). 

For ACRYLIC wall art prints they sandwiches the photograph between two pieces of Plexiglas and has a choice of three hanging attachments (that are not visible from the front). They expect it to have a 30+ year lifespan.

For WOOD wall art print they take a beautiful photographic print and mount it onto a 20mm raw dark-edged timber panel (strong enough to resist moisture and humidity). They finish off the Wood Print with a matte optically clear laminate for extra protection and a beautifully soft finish.

The print comes with a clever routed groove on the back to allow easy wall hanging.

 

For COTTON prints they offer museum-quality paper that are made in the United States and carry

UK Fine Art Trade Guild Certification

 

 

Standard paper is made using crushed wood pulp. This results in a product that is not archival

due to the impurities in the pulp.

Fine art paper is normally much thicker and is made from archival cotton rag.

This results in a product that will last 75-100 years.

 

ALBUM QUALITY

Each album is hand made from thick pages printed on high quality smooth fine art paper.

Album pages are printed on 235gsm archival art papers imported from the United States (using genuine Canon pigment inks).

We use an archival 200gsm white card between the pages to make them thicker and more durable (each page ends up approximately 635gsm).

To create the block, they use a specialized adhesive that we have used for decades and know stands the test of time.

Many low-cost albums use PVA glue or other cheap adhesives that risk delaminating in the long term.
