Year in the Life Family Photography and Films

If there is one thing we’ve learnt in 2020 is that life is fragile and short and the most important thing we have is our family and friends. While photography might not be on top of your mind when you think about your priorities, I would like you to think again. If today were your last day (yeah I know… but I had to go there), how would you want your loved ones to remember you?

Time flies, kids grow up, friends move away and while you blink, everything around you changes. All that’s left are your memories and the stories connected to them. But what if you had a visual collection of your year to share with your favourite people? A film or an album, a family heirloom, to pass on?

 

This is why I created a “Year in the Life” subscription – to create an opportunity to document your life and make sure YOU are part of the memories your children will be able to revisit later. This will be a yearlong adventure where you and I intentionally document your life and preserve your stories for you and your family. This is your life, let me document it so you can be part of it.

I offer 2 different subscription models – one that focusses on photography only and one that prioritises family films. All sessions are conducted in a documentary style.

Frequently asked questions

A.k.a. questions you might want to (or should) ask ahead of booking.

Depending on your subscription, you will be able to book 4, 6 or 12 family photography or film sessions within a 12-month period. That means you’ll be eligible for a monthly session, one every 2 or every 3 months.

After the first session, you will get access to a personal online gallery where all your images from the “Year in the Life” subscription will be stored for you. You will be able to download all images as high-res or web-res files, take advantage of the included print store to buy additional prints or use the digitals to purchase prints from your own preferred lab.

If you book one of the photography packages, you will also receive a slideshow to music for every session. The film packages include a 1minute family film with every session.

At the end of the year, you will receive a beautiful Storyteller Book including the most memorable and important moments of your year in one album. When booking a film subscription, you will receive a final year-end family film that’s about 5minutes long.

Your 12-mont period that covers your “Year in the Life” can start at any point. You can decide to start on a family member’s birthday, the beginning of a specific month or any other date you want.

We can book in your first session as soon as your first monthly payment has come through.

To grab one of the limited subscription spots to document your “Year in the Life”, click the link on top or at the bottom of this page saying “GRAB YOUR SPOT”. You will be lead to a page where you can choose your subscription package (photos only vs photos and film – 4/6/12 sessions per year). After confirming the purchase you will be sent a link to a booking confirmation with my Terms & Conditions that need to be signed as well as the payment details to set up a standing order into my account.

Once I received your confirmation and the first payment, I will get in touch with you so we can schedule your first session and talk about all questions you might still have at this point.

Should you have any questions ahead of booking, please send me a message so we can have a chat and go through everything you’d like to know before making this year-long commitment.

2 weeks after your first session, you will receive an invitation to your personal online gallery where all your photos from your year will be stored. You’ll be able to download high-res and web-sized images as well as buy products from the print shop that is attached to the gallery.

After every session, you will receive an email informing you when your next set of photos is ready for you.

Your slideshows and films will also be stored in the gallery. You will receive an additional link to download the video files separately.

While the “Year in the Life” should document the stories and moments happening within your immediate family, you’re welcome to schedule individual sessions for family events that happen throughout your year. So if aunties and uncles and nans and grandpas are part of the memories you want to collect for your children, they should definitely be included in your sessions at some point.

You’ll be able to download print-ready high-res files from your online gallery. While you’ll have access to a print store attached to your gallery, you’re free to use any lab you want, should you wish to create prints or wall art of your memories.

You’ll also be able to share these images with your wider family as well as on your social media channels.

Yes, you can change your subscription. If you want to downgrade, you might be asked to pay a fee to cover sessions I’ve already done for you before you continue on a lower subscription. If you want to upgrade, you’ll be able to do that starting the following month.

Should you decide that these subscription packages are not right for you, you will be able to cancel at any point during the 12-month period. The minimum duration of any package will be 3months once I have fulfilled at least 1 session with you. When cancelling, all sessions that have been executed and delivered will have to be paid in full plus 50% of the following payment after the last session.

You will be able to cancel the subscription within 14days of signing the contract. If no session has been scheduled and completed at that point, you’ll be eligible for a 100% refund.

If any big life changes prevent you from fulfilling the 12-month contract, you will be able to cancel at any point. However, payment commitments as explained above might still apply.
