Zenfolio | MelTphotography | Ballarat Kindergarten Photography

My Kindergarten photography style is very natural and relaxed. I like to spend a little bit of time getting to know each child before asking to take their photograph. I find this helps build a strong trusting relationship and the kids are much more relaxed knowing who I am and why I am there.

I provide each family with a mixture of posed and natural documentary style portraits. Each child will receive an online gallery of approximately 5-10 images along with a group image. Sibling and friend images can also be arranged.

To capture the natural images I will blend into the kids everyday kindergarten lives, working both inside and outside capturing all the activities and things they love doing while at kinder. I usually like to spend 2 - 3 days at each kinder (depending on class sizes) to ensure plenty of time is spent with each child.  

After photo day / days I will then cull and lightly retouch each image which takes approximately 2 weeks. Parents are then able to view their child's photographs on a secure password protected online viewing gallery, and then have the choice to purchase package and add on extras if they wish. Payment is usually due about a week after receiving the online gallery details so there is no prepayment required. I currently offer three packages and a range of extras / boutique gift ideas.

Daycare Centre Important Information  

I run my daycare bookings a little different than my kindergarten sessions.. All daycare centre bookings require a $20 per child booking fee / deposit paid upfront (before photo day) which is then deducted off the total package purchased. The reason for this policy is that with daycare centres having such a broad range of children at different ages I find some parents (especially those with young bubs) prefer to wait for photographs until the child is a little older or at kindergarten. Having the booking fee in place gives the parents the option wether they wish to participate or not. If you would like any other information or to arrange an in person meeting please give me a call on
