A personal note from Mark and Kate Ruff …

We know that your Child is the most important thing to you.
We have two daughters.
We know and understand how quickly they grow up and how important it is to capture certain times in their lives. They just grow up too quickly!

We can’t stop them growing up, but you can keep the memory of them with kids photography from Fantasy Portraits.
You may think they will stay this way forever, but they won’t, and before you know it they will be young adults and that special time when they were young may be lost.
We are all too busy with our careers and lives, and special times may just be a fleeting memory.

Seize the moment – do it now!

It is best to come in for a ‘consultation’ so we can discuss all your requirements, see our costumes and view our prints, clocks and books – this is part of our ‘customer service’.

Our Hollywood style of photography immerses your Child in an enchanting world, creating an exclusive  portrait that will be cherished forever.

Your Child will love the bright colours and the environment they appear to play in.

The portrait sitting is very simple so it will not confuse or intimidate your Child.
We have a number of costumes that your Child can wear, or you are welcome to bring your own if it suits.
What we do after the photography session is magical.

We do not take snap shots, nor are we a commodity photographer churning out a high volume of photos – we produce well crafted images that will endure for a lifetime.

Our Fantasy Portraits of children are simply the best – we create images that are very different and very special.
We have many virtual environments to choose from to suit a boy or girl of almost any age.

For Children from 3-13 years, you need to allow 30 minutes to 1 hour for a session.
Babies can also be photographed, however, the right time of day is an important factor when making a booking.

Our creation fee can suit everyone.
Express: For the budget conscious.
Standard: Most Popular.
Deluxe:  Top of the range!

After hours on Tuesday and Friday night are also available.

After the photo session, at a later date, you will be invited to a “viewing session” where you can see your enchanting images in a variety of sizes.
These photographs will not hide in the cupboard, they will be hung with pride.

Everyone loves our style of image making, if not, then you pay nothing.

Don’t miss out on an opportunity that will certainly create conversation in your home.

Give you and your child something that will be enjoyed and cherished for a lifetime – a wonderful investment and a future heirloom.
