High School Formal Portraits...

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught ... is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.” — Aaron Siskind


Year 12 formals are a special time in every young adults life. They are about to take that step from being a child at school, to being an adult in the big wide world. It is a celebration for not only the child, but their entire family - especially their parents - you made it through the school years! YAY! 

Where will my session be held?

My formal sessions are held outdoors. If you are coming to me in Biloela, I generally have one  spot picked out, all my clients come to me as I have the spot decorated especially for the occasion. If I am travelling out of Biloela, I am open to suggestions from you.

What should I wear?

Obviously your child who is attending the formal will be dressed up - the remainder of the family should dress up too...this makes these images something special you can hang with pride on your wall. Please ensure you are not wearing thongs/joggers, stay away from shirts with large logos on the front, and anything that is heavily patterned.

Stick with simple colours, and perhaps different hues of the same colour, we want colours that compliment each other, rather than being TOO matchy-matchy. I suggest different neutral shades (i.e. ivory, grey, beige) and then add a few pops of coordinating colour. 

Hair and make up - while not 100% necessary for those not attending the formal, it certainly makes your photos extra special if you 'dress up' for the occasion.

How long will the session take?

I aim to keep these sessions short and sweet. I am very aware that not everyone is comfortable in front of the camera, and I will always work hard to ensure I get every shot that you are after. I have lots of my clients (mostly husbands and kids!) remark to me at the end of our session together 'well that wasn't painful!", which is music to my ears.  I go out of my way to make sure the session is fun and relaxed for everyone involved - I am not your normal look at me and smile photographer - I love to get my clients interacting with each other, having fun and those genuine smiles and looks of love!

What do we pay up front?


The only cost you pay up front is my session fee, which is $250. This is required to guarantee your booking, and covers our time together during the shoot, 10 colour and black and white digital download high resolution images, and the full editing of your gallery.
