Investment Guide 2019

We are Nick and Lindsey Stewart of Skipping Stone Photography and we’re so glad that you have found us! Our aim is to create natural, beautiful images that you will treasure for many years to come.

We have been a couple since 2004, and business partners since 2009. As parents of two young children, we are constantly surprised at how quickly they are changing. Photographs seal the moment in time, making even everyday events seem special.

We want to help capture these fleeting moments for you and make the memories last. Most of all we can offer beautiful, timeless photos that you will treasure for life.

Frequently Asked Questions

HOW DO WE BOOK IN OUR DATE?
Simply email us on nick@skippingstone.com.au or give us a call on 0434 934 766 to enquire about your date. We’ll answer any questions you have and send through an online booking page to secure your date. On your booking page your contract can be signed and a $200 retainer can be paid to hold your date, payable by direct deposit or credit card.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
After you’ve booked, we will send through a questionnaire to gather some more details about your christening/baptism, and we’ll be in touch during the lead-up to run through any last minute details.

WHEN IS MY FINAL BALANCE DUE?
Your final balance is due one week before your event. We’ll be in touch during the lead up with details for you to make your payment online.

WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY PHOTOGRAPHS?
Within 2-4 weeks of your event, depending on the time of year. At peak times turnaround time is closer to 4 weeks.

HOW WILL I VIEW MY PHOTOGRAPHS?
We will upload your full gallery of images to a password protected online gallery. You will be able to share your gallery with family and friends, and will also be able to place any product orders from your gallery.

WILL I RECEIVE HIGH RESOLUTION FILES?
Yes, you will receive a full set of edited, high resolution files on a wooden USB. A digital download option is also available.

WHAT DOES YOUR COVERAGE INCLUDE?
Your photographer, Nick, whose work appears on this page and on skippingstone.com.au, will be your photographer. Coverage duration will depend on the package chosen, but no matter your choice, the church service will be documented, extended family photos will be possible, and individual portraits of your child will be included. We also like to set aside time to capture some creative and fun images of your immediate family - photos that reveal genuine smiles and interaction. It’s almost like booking a mini-family session with your christening coverage.

HOW IS MY ALBUM DESIGNED?
You can either choose to select the images for your album, or we can do it for you! Either way, you can easily mark any images you’d like included in your album within your online gallery. We’ll then create your design and send you an e-book for you to approve the layout. From that approved layout, your album is then handmade from some of the most beautiful materials available. We’ll run through this in more detail once you’ve had a chance to view your images.
