Family & Kids Portraits

Family life can get busy at times, so it’s important to remember the good things. Kids grow up in a blink of an eye, get taller and wiser, somehow never growing up from being ‘the little one’. And when they visit for Christmas, the photo of them as a kid still greets them from the hall. Arlukova Studios aims to create these photo heirlooms that will stay in your family for years to come.

The photo shoot can take place in your home or a location special to you. It lasts around an hour to let you and your kids relax and feel comfortable. Depending on the location, family pets are welcome to join in as well! Photos from these sessions can be printed, mounted and framed if desired.

Seasonal Christmas shoots are available for pre-booking all year round. These make great Christmas cards too! Note: Please allow reasonable processing time – try to book your Christmas shoot at least a month before Christmas, allow more notice if you’d like to receive printed products before the holidays.

Personal Photo Shoot

It’s important to have good photos of yourself. They can boost your confidence, the photo shoot experience is fun and self-expression is essential! Photos tilt your memories towards the good times; they remind you of places, people and stories, so why not celebrate personal milestones with a photo shoot?

These photos can be used across your social media profiles or requested as prints. Location is up to you and if you have any props in mind let your photographer know.

Gift Certificates are available for this service to give your loved ones the experience they’d never buy for themselves.

Photoshoot usually lasts around one hour, allowing to capture a variety of photos, experiment with your props or a change of clothes.


Corporate, Creative or Graduation

Professionally taken headshots are a necessity for corporate and artistic professionals, and it’s always a good idea to keep them up to date.

For updating your corporate headshots, recommended session time is an hour. This time allows you to relax and get a variety of photos to choose from. Location of the photo shoot is up to you. Let your photographer know if you’d like a photo outside or inside in front of the static plain background, since it will affect the equipment needed.

For creative shoots a prior in-depth consultation is required to define the desired style, location and equipment needed. This could be arranged over the phone, a Zoom meeting or in person. If you have any inspiration photos, Pinterest boards or other desired imagery, let your photographer know. Recommended time for these shoots are 90 minutes to allow time to capture a variety of photos and experiment with your ideas.

Graduation portraits can be done at location of your choosing, usually at home. For a classic posed photo Arlukova Studios recommends sessions to take place inside to allow more control over light and weather conditions, which will achieve the best results. Time varies depending on desired quantity of photos, average shoot taking 30-60 minutes.


Pregnancy is a short fleeting time in woman’s life that deserves to be celebrated and remembered forever. Capture that joy and anticipation.

Duration of these sessions vary, Arlukova Studios recommends booking 60-90 minutes for a variety of photos, allow you feel relaxed and enjoy yourself. Feel free to bring any items purchased for the baby to add a personal touch. Your partner is welcome to join the session.

For best results, recommended time for a Maternity session is around 30 weeks, when the bump is visible, without being too uncomfortable.

Prints from the session can be purchased separately in variety of sizes, mounted and framed if desired.
