Your Photo Shoot Experience

How should I prepare for my PixiFoto Photo Shoot?

  • Have a think about who the images are for. Perhaps a special occasion, a gift for a loved one, or simply an update for all the family.
  • We recommend that you bring a personal item, some special toys or teddies to make the photo shoot unique to you, and even a change of outfit or two!
  • We have a helpful checklist of things to think about before you come; click the button below to read more.

  • The photo shoot itself is around 20-30 minutes. During this time we aim to take an average of 30 different unique images with a range of different backgrounds and styles of photography.
