Well here we are on the very last day of year another year, and what a year it’s been!
In 2017 I’ve photographed thousands of childcare and Kindy kids for their annual photo day. Some of these children were first photographed when they were in the Nursery room; they are now leaving to start school for the first time in 2018. I have also had MANY school aged children attend photo days with their younger siblings – these school children I photographed as well when they attended childcare – boy they grow up fast!
I’m truly grateful to be able to wake up every day (even the super early starts…) and go to work each day. My “job” is to play silly games, make 4 year old jokes and ultimately make kids smile! All of this captured on camera, so as parents we can look back in 5, 10 or 20 years time in awe of how little, cute and innocent our gorgeous preschoolers were. I won’t lie, it’s LOTS of hard work and there are many late nights on the computer and packing orders after photo day, but it’s ever so worth it when just one parent lets me know they adore their child photos.
Late this year, Kindy graduation photos were added to the Photoplay Studios service offering on a large scale. It’s been a hit! In 2018 I’ll be adding this service commencing July each year and running through until late November. Hearing the children talk excitedly about attending school for the first time is something I love – their excitement and anticipation is infectious! All current clients will have access to this service, and I’m sure there are going to be many new clients accessing our services for their Kindy families. Exciting times ahead!

It’s never too early to book for graduation photos – our calendar gets VERY full towards the end of each year (my kids don’t see much of me late term 3 and most of term 4…). Just this year, I had a centre contact me after Christmas – they saw a one of our graduating Kindy kids and booked.
Lastly, I’d like to say thank you….it really has been an incredible year. Without each and every client (many of you have become friends along the journey) my life would look very different. It really is a privilege to revisit centres every year to capture children as they grow. I love the relationships I’ve made and the families I’ve met along the way. May you all have a safe and Happy New Year, and enjoy what 2018 has to offer. Tania x
