Welcome to our first mini photo session at Mangawhai Beach!

Do you wish to capture your growing family, need a Christmas gift for the Grandies, want to mark an important milestone or just want some great couple photos but don’t want to spend heaps on a full session? Our Mangawhai Mini Shoot Day is perfect for you! These super-chill 15 minute shoots with Greg are relaxed, fun and capture you and your tribe in an authentic way.

Mangawhai Mini Shoot Details 

  • 15 minute sessions
  • At Mangawhai Heads Beach
  • $200 including GST
  • Receive 10 full resolution, digitally mastered images
  • Images are delivered via a private online gallery
  • Discounted print upgrade packages are available for pre-purchase
  • Further images, prints and wall art can be purchased from the gallery

Each shoot is 15 minutes long - just enough to get some cracker shots and a few good laughs (Greg has some killer Dad jokes), but not so long that you start to feel bored or little ones lose the plot. You’ll receive a link to a private gallery with all the images from your session so you can select your 10 favourites to download which are included in the $200 session fee.

Can’t choose only 10 or want all the images? You can purchase additional images for $30 each, or the whole session for an additional $200.

You can also upgrade your session to include fantastic, high quality Queensberry wall prints! At the time of booking you can opt for a framed and matted 10x8" (250x200mm) print for an extra $100 (usually $155) or a 20x16" (500x400mm) print for an extra $275 (normally $355). Framed prints, wall art, photo books and print boxes can also be purchased at any time in the future through your Queensberry gallery.

Booking in your session is as easy as clicking the book now button below and locking in your preferred time slot.


Where will the shoot be held?

At the south end of Mangwhai Beach, in front of the surf club.

What if it rains?

We will work around light showers on the day. If it's a proper rainy day then the shoot will be postponed till the next weekend. We will make the decision at 9am on the Mini Shoot date and will email all booked clients.

What should we wear?

Wear something that you're comfortable in and won't be distracted by on the day. Neutral tones are great. Black or florescent colours don't photograph so well. Patterns are ok for one person in the group - multiple people in different patterns doesn't work so well. If in doubt, head to Pinterest for ideas.

Is there a deposit to pay?

The full session fee of $200 is due at the time of booking to secure your time slot. Session fees are not refundable if you do not attend, nor transferable to other persons or another date without prior agreement.

What time should we arrive?

You'll be able to choose your preferred time and sessions are in 15 minute times slots. You will need to arrive 10 minutes early. If you are late to your session, it will still end at the allocated time (we will try and accomodate you as best we can). No refunds will be given.

Who can be in the photo?

Six people maximum per session. These mini sessions may be used for immediate family, couples or maternity. They do not include extended family members (grandparents, extra partners, cousins etc). If you require a shoot for more people, please enquire about booking a full shoot with on an alternate date.

Are pets allowed?

Yes, dogs are allowed but must be on a lead (as per the beach rules).
