My style is photo-journalistic, I love capturing families playing, snuggling, being goofy, and just loving on each other. I will always do my best to get that one desired shot of everyone looking and smiling, but for the most part I will be encouraging hugs, tickles, piggy back rides, and fun interaction games.
Time: All sessions are shot at either sunrise or sunset for optimal lighting – the time frame of this will depend upon the season and the sun. We will discuss this more in detail if we haven’t already.
Preparing the kids for our session as much as possible often takes the timidness out of the evening. Please make sure kids know that this is FUN! No threats, as they usually bring about tears and added stress. Instead I am a huge fan of bribery – (ice cream after or their favourite dinner on the way home!) is always a great idea. However, please don’t bring sweets for bribing during the shoot.
Food! The biggest piece of advice for happy kids would be to feed them up before the session! Give them an early dinner! Load them up with snacks beforehand. I speak from experience on this one, a hungry toddler is a grumpy toddler
Sick? Your session date arrives and you all come down with snotty noses? No problem, lets reschedule! I want you to happy and bright at your session.
Weather: I like to keep a close eye on the weather, I will reschedule a session if it is wet and rainy. Overcast is no problem and can also provide some magical sunset colours! I may also suggest a change of location if the wind picks up too much.
Deposit A $50 deposit is due at the time of booking to secure your date. This is non-refundable, but is transferrable for another date.
After your session, I aim to have your gallery ready by 2 weeks. You receive your login for your online gallery where you can pick your 20 digital images. Love them all and cant decide? Then upgrade and have the lot! You will also have the option to order prints and albums at additional costs. Check out the products section for everything on offer.
