Who can participate?

Anyone! We have a limit of 5 people per shoot but the smaller the group the more space you have to strike a pose. Friends, siblings, family, pets everyone is welcome. 

Speaking of pets...

Yes we are VERY pet friendly at Bang Bang Balloons. Want to bring your pet for the pic or it's very own self portrait, no worries! Please make sure they are leashed, toileted and bring along some of their favourite treats. We will have a few doggy props (outfits) but we are more than happy for you to bring your own. 

Why are you doing this? 

Why not!? 2020 has been a heck of a year, so it's time to have some fun! Create some memories with your friends and family, get a super cute pic to send grandma for Christmas or maybe you need to update your profile photo!

So what will the set look like? 

Unfortunately, the red and pink fringe wall you have been seeing is off to Brisbane to create some photo moments for another event BUT our two tone gold wall is also super cute! Choose to have a cluster of red balloons and a candy cane in the shot or El naturel.


What about Covid? 

We ask that you arrive 5 minutes prior (if you do arrive earlier please wait in the comfort of your air-conditioned car) to your shoot & use the hand sanitiser available. Please do not touch the wall and if you are sick please stay home and send someone in your place. The team will be disinfecting the area throughout the day.

Where will all this magic be taking place? 

Our office in Sunrise - we will email you the address once you have purchased your ticket. 

What about props? 

We encourage you to bring your own props - Think santa hats, reindeer ears, Christmas jumpers, anything sparkly, family matching outfits - whatever floats your boat! Given the whole pandemic thing we think that is the safest way! We will have prop kits available to pre purchase which you can use to enhance your photos and then take home for the kids to play with! You can view it here.

What is a prop kit and do i need one? 

Shiny things to make your photo even cuter and no its definitely not mandatory, just a nice little extra if you are that way inclined. 

It includes a mix of air-filled foil balloons, helium foil balloons and some air-filled latex balloons. We have 35cm candy canes also available. Click here to purchase.

What if I can't make it? 

Due to the nature of this event tickets are non-refundable. We suggest gifting or selling your ticket to friends and family. 

What if I am running late? 

These things happen! Just give us a call to let us know and we will make it work. Please leave enough travel time and factor in that summer Byron traffic!

I can't make it on the dates provided, can I come another day? 

Depending on demand, we may open up a few more dates - we will keep you posted via instagram!
