Kids of Manawatu Vol. 7

Kids of Manawatu Vol. 7 is calling for children in Palmerston North and the wider Manawatu region to be involved in our charity portrait project to raise money for the Arohanui Hospice. This is our 7th edition coffee table book project and we are proud to say that our previous issues have helped to raise over $30,000 for the Arohanui Hospice. Please help us to spread the news and raise funds for the wonderful team at the Hospice.

Children and teenagers up to 18-years-old can take part in this exciting project for a donation of $50 per child or $100 per family. In return, you will receive a photoshoot from one of us, and choose an image of each child to go into the book. You will also receive a $100 credit towards the purchase of any images for yourself.

The book itself is $100, which is also a direct donation to the Hospice also. Its a wonderful Xmas present that keeps on giving.

  • What to wear?

-We love photographing kids as kids, being themselves. The book is about celebrating who they are and cherish their childhood. So whether it is ballerina dress, or a pirate or superman costume, we love them all.

  • Where will the creative session takes place?

-We can do the photoshoot in the studio or outdoor. From our experience, kids love being outdoor so this is definitely our preference. For newborn photography, we do highly recommend that you come to our studio.

  • Do you do newborn photography as well?

-We love newborn photoshoots. So small, so innocent, so precious. Our studio has been specifically kitted out for newborn photography, with beautiful natural light, lots of props, not to mention heaters to keep the little ones warm and cosy.

  • When is the best time for newborn photography?

-We recommend anything from 5-14 days when they still sleep lots and lots.

  • Can we do a family portrait as well?

-Certainly! It would be a pleasure to photograph the whole family together. And this would not incur any additional cost.

  • How much does it cost to participate?

-To take part, it requires a donation of either $50 per child or $100 per family. This will give you a sitting session with us, and an image of each child to go into the book.

  • Can we order some extra photos afterwards?

-Yes you can. We are here to help you treasure the memories and we have some amazing products to decorate your home with the artworks. We offer stretched canvas ready to hang, or our super awesome fine art prints.
