Our Experience - While relatively new to kinder photography, your photographer has been photographing children of all ages since 2012 and has extensive experience with children of all ages as well as children with special needs. We photograph centres big and small with over 3000 faces in front of our cameras all over Gippsland each year.
Image Variety - We take the time to capture joy, natural smiles and interactions in the outdoor environment of your centre. We work with your centre to choose an area with great light and play space to capture a variety of images of each child. We provide Individual Portraits and play photos, Class Group photos, Sibling photos and Staff photos. Parents love the variety we offer!
Online Ordering Gallery - Simple, secure online proofing and ordering system where families can view photos and order a range of images and products.

Frequently Asked Questions
What do you offer for Kinder Children?
For Kinder photos, we have a lovely 5X7 inch Album which contains your child's formal portrait, up to 6-7 candid photos, a group photo and allows space at the back for additional photos from through the year or Graduation.
Do you offer Kinder Graduation Photos?
Yes!!! I love returning at the end of the year to see the children again to photograph them in their Graduation outfit with their certificates. There is also space left in the Kinder Album for a print from your Graduation session so that everything is kept in the one keepsake album.
Can families order extra copies of Kinder Album?
Yes! There is even a small discount on your extra copies of the Kinder Album.
Can families order digital images, prints & products?
Yes! We love that families get to view their images via the online gallery where they can order a variety of products including Collages, canvas prints, framed wall art, digital images and of course regular prints. Payment plans are also offered on all purchased over $250.
What do you offer for Daycare Photos?
We offer one formal portrait for Daycare images as well as sibling photos. We have a range of affordable print packages similar to the "School Photo style" including small and large prints, class / group photos and a keepsake booklet. Prices range from $20 - $60.
Do Daycare Photos get an online gallery?
No. Daycare style photos will need to provide a completed order form and their final prints will be delivered direct to the centre within 2-3 weeks after Photo Day.
What if Children are absent or sick?
If an order form has been completed and payment received, (or will be completed on the day) we will reschedule them for another day and pop into the centre to photograph any missing children.
What is the cut off for ordering after Photo Day?
We like to have most order forms completed and returned on photo day. This enables us to provide a fast turn around of galleries and images. After Photo Day, you may order additional images or products at any time. Galleries stay active for one month after Photo Day and can be reactivated for ordering anytime in the 12 months following.
What are your payment options?
Payment envelopes are provided for photo day. Depending on agreed centre policy, cash, credit card or online payment options are available. Families have the option of payment plans on added purchases from their galleries. Our packages are very competitive, with the added bonus that clients can view their galleries online and upgrade their package or purchase additional images/digital/products.
We ask that you look over our price guide to ascertain if our pricing will suit your centre families.
What is the turn around time?
Photo Day can vary and depending on numbers it can be Photo Week!
Online Galleries are ready to view approx 7 working days after the last Photo Day at the centre. If families order digital files they are delivered immediately.
Because most orders have already been made, our team are already working behind the scenes to get images printed and ready for kinder albums. You can expect a delivery of final images & products, ready for distribution to families within 2-3 weeks after the last Photo Day at your centre.
Where do you take the Photos?
Photos are taken in an outdoor area of your centre. We love the natural light of outdoor photos and children love showing us their skills in the playground. We also love some quiet indoor photos where children might be playing in a kitchen area, painting, reading or drawing. We try and engage with children and their interests and let them show us what excites them about kinder. This is a proven technique to capture real expressions and real personality in children.
Do you have Insurance?
Yes. Naomi Seccombe Photography has current public liability insurance. Proof of insurance coverage available on request
Do you have a working with Children's Check?
Yes! Naomi and all her team have Working With Children's Checks. Proof of these are available upon request.
Do you photograph Class / Group photos?
Yes! We offer a traditional class photo where all children are sitting together.
We also offer a composite style class photo where we use each child's individual portrait on the one print. This means that not everyone has to be there on the one day for the group photo and is the best option for younger age groups where we can have everyone looking their best.
Do you provide forms?
Yes. 1 month prior to Photo Day we will make contact and arrange order forms and marketing material to be delivered. We will also ask for a confirmation or estimation of children per room / per age group so that we can work out our schedule for the days we are at your centre.
Does the centre need to handle orders?
We find that good old fashion order envelopes work best. Order envelopes will be delivered to the centre approx. one month prior to photo day for you to hand out to your families. Families will bring these with them on photo day and we will collect them and process everything from there.
Do you photograph all children at the centres?
Yes, on Photo Day, every child has their formal portrait taken and is included in the group photo.
By returning their order form and payment, Kinder children will have a variety of photos taken to suit their order.
Do you Photograph Sibling Photos?
Yes! We are always happy to include siblings!
Families need to ensure they have marked this on their order form and that the siblings are in the centre on the same day.
Do you provide support for families to order?
Yes absolutely! I love connecting with centre families and in many cases have photographed their family again years later.
After Photo Day, we treat your families as clients and they are always encouraged to call during business hours or email where we are happy to promptly assist with any enquiries, re-scheduling or ordering/website assistance.
We encourage centres to pass on all questions so we can give personal attention to your families and assist them promptly.
