Lion & Cub Photography will be photographing children at Boundary Lane Children’s Centre. Click on the plus sign before each step for more information.
To have your child’s photograph taken, you must register them first using the google form on this page. Please ensure you take a moment to read the terms of purchase located at the bottom of this page.
WHAT SORT OF CHILDCARE PHOTOS WILL I RECEIVE?
Lion & Cub Photography’s award winning photographer Nikki McLennan has over 22 years experience. We pride ourselves on capturing genuine smiles & quirks with a natural and fun approach that is led by the child as much as possible.
You will receive a gallery of up to 12 photos of each individual child to choose from in both colour and black and white.
SIBLINGS – Siblings can be photographed together.
Tell your children that the lady with the camera is super funny and will tell you how clever you are. You can tell them that Nikki took their photos last year and it will be easy because she will show her wooden motorbike and puppet collection.
If your child is super shy, we have several strategies to bring them out of their shell.
I recommend avoiding logos, characters or stripes as they distract from the gorgeous face of your child. I do encourage favourite outfits, party dresses and great shirts that look super cute on little boys. Simple singlets and onesies in neutral tones look super cute! Denim always photographs well.
IMPORTANT: If you do not intend to purchase images of your child or you do not wish for your child’s photo to be taken, please advise your educators.
Each registered child will be photographed individually and in a class photo.
Class Photographs – Lion & Cub does a group photo that has everyone in together along with the room’s educators.
NOTE: You will NOT be able to view the class portrait prior to purchase. Please be aware that the name you supply on the form is the name used in the class photo names list.
Sibling Photographs ARE AVAILABLE
The team at Lion & Cub take care to edit, colour correct and crop you images to the professional standard as seen here for our families.
You will receive an email from Lion & Cub Photography with your password to access your private online gallery when the photographs are ready with 2 -3 weeks.
To ensure the gallery is private, last year we used your child’s date of birth in month/day format e.g. If your child was born 28/11 the code would be 2811. For siblings, use the oldest child’s DOB.
You will have ONE WEEK to order your images online. This ensures orders will be ready for Christmas.
Orders are placed online via your private gallery.
If you purchase digital photographs, you will receive an email with a link to download the photographs instantly.
Print parcels will be delivered to daycare downstairs for pick up around 3-4 weeks later.
