Frequently Asked Questions – Montage

What is a Montage?
The Parklife Montage is a unique original art work which captures your family life. 42 images of the little details of your life beautifully presented in 20 x 30 contemporary box frame.

What can I Montage?
Anything which means something to you. The Family Montage makes a fantastic keepsake of the little details of family life. We have also montaged, Classic Cars, Cup Cakes, Yachts, Wine Labels and Dogs.

I want to have a family montage, how long will the shoot take?
Generally we take the pictures during a busy time at home for example getting ready for school. We then also take pictures outside perhaps on the walk to school or a trip to the park. We are happy to come early in the morning to capture these moments.

It chaos in the mornings, I donʼt think I can have a Photographer there too!
Donʼt worry Phil will just blend in! He will keep the kids entertained and makes a fantastic cup of tea, but draws the line at the washing up! Donʼt forget he wantʼs to capture the chaos such as toast on a plate, unfinished homework, hair and teeth being brushed.

What else do I need to do?
It is important for the Montage to contain images of small much loved items such as cuddly toys, blankets, kids paintings, tiny shoes etc. Please have a think about this before we arrive and point out these items so they donʼt get missed.

When and how will I see my Montage.
About two weeks after the shoot we will send you a proof by email for approval.

Can I make changes to the proof?
Please remember that the Montage needs to be viewed in its entirety. We have built it to be an amazing art work. However some of the individual images will not be of a style that you would necessarily hand individually on your wall. When editing your Montage we consider colour, light and balance. If there is an individual image which you feel does not fit, for example: a toy which is never played with, we are happy to replace it. We try to avoid complicated re-edits as it often leads to a less cohesive Montage.

What are the print options?
Please see the products page. The standard Montage is an A3 Framed Print, however it also looks great in larger sizes and for a modern look, consider the Inset framing options. Please do call us if you would like to explore further options. We can also print your Montage on Postcards, a great way to share it with family and friends!

When will by images be delivered?
In general we need around two weeks to print your images. Lager bespoke printing may take a little longer. If you have a deadline please let us know and we will do all we can to get your prints to you in time.
