What to expect

With proven experience, our hand-selected team will always strive to ensure that your time with us is memorable.

Here is our process:

We want to be sure to create images that will be meaningful to you and your family in the decades to come and that’s why we take the time to discuss what you love about your family and how we can capture those feelings in your portraits.

You will be invited to a Pre-Portrait Consultation with one of our team. At this informal and brief chat, we will ask you about your family, and what you hope to achieve.

We highly recommend that parents attend this meeting, but we understand life gets busy, and it's not always possible for both parents to attend. Those that come alone, usually bring along some images of their family members, and a few quick snaps of their home’s interior, so we can see where you are wanting to enjoy your portraits.

We will look at some finishes or portraits and discuss investment options, just so you are comfortable.

We will also talk about clothing selection, so your portraits focus on you, not just on what you’re wearing. If what we discuss fits with what you have in mind, we can look at available appointment times, so please bring your calendar with you.

Your Portrait Session, set in our studio, is going to be relaxed and fun. One of our experienced photographers, all of whom have experience and have been trained by Doc List, will go about creating beautiful images of those you care most about, in the way you will love!

For those families wanting their portraits created on location, founding photographer Doc List is available for 2 to 3 families per month.

After your portrait session, we will find a suitable time for all parents in the session to come back to select the final images and give you important information to read in preparation for this.

At your Image Selection Appointment we will provide you valuable advice in selecting your family collection and we will ensure that what you decide on is right for you, your family and your home. To help your decision making, we strongly recommend that 2 adults come to this appointment. Even though you may finish early, please allow 60-90 minutes for this appointment. We want you to make the right choices after all!

At Doc List Photography, we love children. However, we have found that young children aged 2 – 7 can greatly increase the length of your Image Selection Appointment. Please let us know in advance if you plan to bring young children to your Image Selection Appointment, as we may need to arrange a babysitter.
