What is Inspired Play Photography?

Our co-founder Nicole Halton is an avid photographer who loves documenting the magical, playful, candid moments of childhood. Over the years Nic has seen all manner of photographs in early education and care settings - from the blurry snapshots captured on cheap digital cameras, to the cheesy, posed images of school photography companies. Both of these serve a purpose, but how much nicer is it to have a quality photograph of a child at play? One year, while working as a Director, Nicole observed a wonderful photographer (who had been doing the standard posed images) spend half an hour playing with a child in the playground in order to get a beautiful, candid image of her, after failing to get her to sit and pose. This moment stuck with Nic and in the years since, through having her own three children, to photographing children in centres for books, she has come to see that these candid, playful moments are too special not to capture!

How does it work?

Nicole will spend approximately 2 Hours in your service capturing moments of play. Nicole aims to blend into the environment, mindful of not intruding on the children's space, and play. You will receive the images in a digital format approximately two weeks after the photography session. There will be a combination of black and white and colour (although mostly colour) images, with very minimal editing - the magic of childhood doesn't require retouching! You may wish to use the photographs in your marketing material or in displays within your service. Inspired Play Photography is priced from $275+ GST. Travel costs will apply outside of the Newcastle/Lake Macquarie Region
