Pop-in™ Options

A Pop-in™ event is not the same as a traditional photography experience, we offer the smallest possible bite of professional photography and book as many poppets as we can fit into the same day to keep our prices ridiculously low - so everyone gets a little bit of something valuable for as little money as possible.

To keep our events running efficiently, our portraits are always taken in the exact same way, and we offer special events with fewer bookings available for trickier shoots like sibling specials and family portraits.

So, what is a Pop-in™?

Monthly Pop-ins

Our flagship Monthly Pop-ins are the world's best, most affordable and most adorable way to capture your baby and changing growing month by month.

Book your hour timeslot below then come along at any time during that hour, you may need to wait a few minutes for your turn in the chair, as up to 25 other kids are booked for the same slot. Each child takes only moments to shoot (POP!), but if yours needs a little more time to settle in, no worries, just ask to wait a little longer and try again.

Monthly Pop-ins are perfect for bubbas and children of all ages, from day dot to biggy-wiggys, and there are no rules saying you have to start from month one, or stop at 12 months to build an awesome collection. We have lots of poppets who are toddlers or bigger and many who still Pop-in every month at 3 or 4. Pop-ins are an addiction that's hard to shake!
