What does a day with The Wonder Years look like?
The Wonder Years attends your centre during usual Kinder or Day Care session times. We spend time with each child throughout the day/s capturing outdoor fun, quiet times, art or music activities. We aim for genuine, beautiful photos which the children enjoy having taken. This allows their real personalities to shine in the images.
We spend as much time as required with each child to capture the real them, while minimising any disruption to your program. We quietly and efficiently organise the sessions with each child, letting them know when it is their turn for photos.
Do you take group photos and sibling / friendship photos?
Group or class photos are taken if required. At an agreed time during the day we organise all the children together for their Group Photo. We are also happy to photograph staff members and provide complimentary prints and digital files of staff members to your centre. Sibling photos and friendship group photos can be taken by request.
How are photo orders organised?
We organise all paperwork, order forms and delivery of printed proofs and ordered images to your Kinder.
How much are the photos and packages?
Individual photos may be purchased for $15, and our great value packages begin at $45. We cater for those wanting just a few affordable, beautiful images of their children through to those wanting a full set of keepsake prints, digital files and other products.
How can I pay for my order?
The Wonder Years accepts payment by Visa, Mastercard, cheque or direct deposit. Please see your order form for full payment options.
Can I purchase digital files of my child’s photos?
Yes, digital files (sometimes known as soft copies) can be purchased as part of our packages or individually.
What if my child won’t smile, or does not want to be photographed at all?
At The Wonder Years we focus on a happy, positive photo experience for the children. There are no forced, fake smiles. We encourage your child to play and explore as they would any other day, and accompany them, taking photos along the way. We find children of all personalities love this experience. Some children can fill a proof sheet of beautiful photographs in just a few minutes, others take a lot longer to warm up and interact. Our style and systems allow us to spend the time to photograph each child beautifully. Please feel free to contact us in advance if you have any concerns or tips to share about your child.
