The Mini Session is perfect if you’ve had family photos before and just need a quick update, are on a budget or only after a handful of images. I don’t recommend the Mini Session if you have more than 2 kids under 10 – as it’s always best if we have ample buffer time with young ones, rather than you stressing out if we haven’t got those smiling images you’re after in a short amount of time! There is a maximum of 5 participants + 1 pet for this session type.
The Signature Session is perfect if you’ve never had family photos before, have a family of 5 or more (or if you’re bringing along the grandparents or extended family members! Maximum of 10 family members in total), or would like more time for me to capture a greater variety of shots. The Signature Session also has the option for weekend spots (Saturday’s – limited availability) whereas the Mini Session is Monday to Friday. Please note – if including extended family the focus will be on family groups, not a full session for each individual family.
I understand that things happen! If you need to reschedule your session for any reason, the 50% paid to book in is non-refundable, however you can transfer it to another date. This allows for peace of mind if anyone can’t make it on the day – I just ask that you give me as much notice as is possible. A reschedule within an hour of your session start time or a no-show is treated as a cancellation and the 50% will be forfeited.
My sessions are very relaxed, but also fast moving and fun to keep big kids and little kids alike entertained and engaged. I find the best moments are captured when you forget the camera is even there, so I’ll make sure you’re relaxed and enjoying natural interactions with each other to capture those authentic moments you’ll love!
I encourage sessions to be booked during the temperate months March – May and August – October. I understand this isn’t always possible, so am happy to schedule your session any time of year, just remember that in the summer months we’ll be starting very late in the day for the cooler weather and in winter, we’ll usually need to start earlier in the day to avoid the really cold weather at sunset. We can usually work out something to suit you and your family!
I love beautiful light! We’ll schedule your session to begin during the Golden Hour, scheduled to end around sunset. If you have little ones who are better in the morning, during the warmer months we can schedule an early morning session. Otherwise, there is a handy list of approximate sessions start times by month at the bottom of the page here
Absolutely! Beautiful locations enhance the look of your images, so I always recommend a picturesque spot for your session and have a great range of places I like to use that you can choose from. There are also some great options for pet-friendly locations that I’ve picked out! Set on a special place of your own? I would love to accommodate your request! Just let me know when booking.
I understand that we are all busy people! So I aim to make the process an easy and stress free one. After your session, you’ll receive a preview of my early favourite images on social media within a few days. Your entire session will be available to view within 14 days and when they’re ready, you’ll receive a beautiful online gallery to share with family and friends and to download your high resolution images. These copies are yours to keep and you can share them and make as many prints as you like! I do also have a fantastic range of professional prints and products available to purchase via your online gallery if you’d like to.
That’s the easy part! Begin by choosing which session type you would like, then choosing a date from my calendar (up to 4 weeks in advance), paying 50% of your session to secure your date and then choosing the perfect outdoor location! Here’s the link to book your portrait session
Absolutely! I love photographing all the family, and up to two pets can be included in your session at no extra cost. There are a great range of pet-friendly locations we can choose from.
Once you’re booked in, I’ll send you a comprehensive session preparation guide including help with outfit choices, tips for the best results and what to bring along with you.
Of course! The photos you choose will be delivered to you in a high resolution size that is perfect for display on your computer, phone and sharing via email and are printable up to around 30 x 20″. I always recommend professional printing of any images you would like to display for the best quality, colour reproduction and longevity. My packages you can choose from include digital only options or a great range of prints and products to choose from at discounted prices.
I love working with kids! However I don’t photographs newborns or young babies, so I ask that parents book family portraits with me only when baby is 12 months or older. If you’re wanting to book family portraits with a newborn / baby under 12 months there are some wonderful local photographers who are fabulous baby and family photographers.
All the images you receive are beautifully enhanced by me, and this does take time. Because I know you can’t wait to see your images – you will receive a preview of some of my favourite images from your shoot within just 48 hours afterwards! Depending on my workload, your full session will be ready to see within 14 days.
Your photos are delivered digitally through your beautiful online gallery – download your photos right to your phone, laptop or desktop computer.
