There’s no set time.  It can be as long or as short as needed for us to create the images you wish to have made.  Generally, its around 3-4 hours to allow enough time for hair and makeup, styling, photography, and travel to and from locations.  We never rush and plan to make it a fun and enjoyable experience for all

We say ‘when you can make a day of it’.  You’ll feel amazing as you go from hair and makeup, to styling, and then being photographed.  While it’s all about you, as with most things, it’s better shared with your best friend, mum, partner, or sister for an unforgettable girls day out

Our Boutique studio is based in Carrum Downs and is close to numerous freeways for your convenience.  Your photo experience can be held here in our comfortable and well equipped studio and can end up on various locations to round out your portfolio of amazing images.  We will discuss all your options at your planning consultation

Your cinematic viewing is an emotional part of your journey as you experience the joy of seeing yourself as others see you, as your beautiful shines through in absolutely stunning images.  It is held about 1-2 weeks after your photo experience and you will be able to choose and order your favourites

A ‘Your Beautiful’ photo experience is $195, (locations are $295 and includes $100 credit towards your order).  This fee covers hair and makeup for up to 2 people, our creative talent and time in creating amazing images, a planning consultation before your photo shoot to discuss styling, location, what to wear and bring, and other helpful information to make the most of your photo experience.  It also covers the preparation of your professionally edited images for an in-person cinematic viewing at milner studios 1-2 weeks after your photo shoot to choose your favourite images and products, and place your order.

Beautiful prints begin at $180 and packages start at $495.

Yes we accept Visa and MasterCard.  There is also Eftpos facilities available.  We can also arrange a monthly payment plan that can be spread over time of up to 12 months with no interest charges

Jane and her amazing smile

Dear Mike & Teri

As you know, growing up for me wasn’t easy. I lost my dad when I was only 8 years old and all through my school years I was bullied one way or another. High School was the worst as teenage girls can be very cruel. I have always struggled with my weight and I have never seen myself as beautiful in any way shape or form. I guess if you get told often enough that you are fat or ugly, you start believing it.

Before I stepped into Milner Studios I felt really unattractive. Mike and Teri made me feel welcome and very comfortable. Teri did my hair and makeup and was very informative about what she was doing every step of the way. I couldn’t believe the final result as I looked in the mirror.  I looked and felt beautiful. When I stepped in front of the camera, Mike really made me feel at ease and made the whole experience one that I will never forget. Being a bigger woman I was really unsure of what I would look like in the finished photos but I loved all of them. I would like to thank you Mike and Teri for the whole experience, you really made me look at myself in a totally different way.


Kate looking absolutely confident in her appearance

Having struggled all my life with a sense of inadequacy and lack of respect to myself I have never enjoyed being the centre of attention. In more recent years I have given myself to caring for my husband and our children while neglecting myself entirely; at the cost of my health.  When I came to your studio with my mother we were made to feel so welcome that all nervousness disappeared. It would be the first time in more than a decade, and since losing over 40kg, that I was looking forward to having my picture taken. For my mum, maybe the first time ever!

Both mum and I really enjoyed the experience and felt like we were indeed special. Although the focus was on us it felt more like a drawing out of what was really inside of us, just needing encouragement from another persons perspective. So what we saw in our finished photographs was entirely different to our own perspective; beautiful, more vibrant, laughing and alive.  Ever since our incredible session at Milner Studios I’ve  felt much more confident and I will never forget how it has shown me to look more positively in the mirror. Thank you both for showing us what others see, and helping our beautiful shine through!


Mike and Teri,

I wanted to thank you both for the fantastic experience that Skye and I shared with you at milner studios.   We were so excited for the day, organising our clothes, jewellery and things, and I was so happy that Skye and I were able to experience it together, and its something we’ll never forget. Everything about the afternoon was perfect, the specialised space that you have, and the atmosphere you created, the makeup, the hair, everything was just perfect, and you’re very skilled professionals.  We both had a fun and relaxed time and we’ve got the portraits up at home and we’ve had so many people comment on how beautiful they are.  I’ll recommend you to everybody that I know who ever questions how beautiful they are, and  thank you so much again for helping Skye and myself let our beautiful shine through.

You are both truly amazing, thank you.
