You can send me a message via the contact page HERE. Please describe what kind of session you want, where you live, who will be photographed etc. I will contact you to answer any questions, then we will set the date of your session.
I am located on Sydney North Shore, and my sessions typically take place all over the North Shore, Northern Beaches and Hills District, simply because I know these locations best and can use our time most efficiently. This does NOT mean I won’t travel outside of these locations, in fact I love new locations. We will work together to come up with the best possible location for your family and for the feel of what you want from your images.
Being relaxed and at your best will make you feel more comfortable during the session. As far as clothing goes, keep it simple, you don’t want to be matchy-matchy. I love soft neutrals or pastels. Try to stay away from prominent logos or writing on clothing.
Maternity clients have the option to wear one of my beautiful maternity gowns of their choice during their shoot.
Don’t worry though I will share my What-To-Wear guide and my Pinterest board which has lots of ideas on it.
If your session is in your home, then I will usually take a quick look around your home and start coming up with ideas of where I want to shoot. If the shoot is outdoors I will have arrived before you and checked out the location. I will also take some time to chat your children so that they will learn to trust me and the camera.
Family sessions are fun, candid and often crazy. Kids get to be kids, so don’t stress about your kids behaving and please don’t coach them to say ‘cheese’ and smile. I want them to relax, be themselves and most of all laugh.
Family and newborn sessions go for about 90 minutes. I don’t time my sessions, I stay until I feel we have a variety of images.
Maternity sessions are typically 60 minutes and include outfit changes if required.
I only use natural light, so if it is pouring with rain and dark we will have to postpone the session to another date (even if your session is indoors.) If you are really busy and we can’t reschedule then we can go ahead with your indoor shoot, however outdoor shoots will have to be re-located or postponed.
If you or I are sick, then we reschedule. There is no charge to reschedule your session due to illness or bad weather.
Don’t worry your home doesn’t need to look like it is from a magazine. One thing I do urge you to do is try and declutter as much as possible. Clutter can be a distraction so its best to minimise that. I will typically shoot in your lounge, the kids’ bedrooms and maybe also outdoors depending on the time of day.
You will receive a private online gallery within 3 weeks of your session. Here you will be able to view the watermarked images from your session and you can choose your included images for download. These images are high resolution and so you can print any size you want. If you would prefer to receive a USB of your images please let me know and I will post you one.
Yes! I love photographing birthday parties, baptisms, naming ceremonies, small weddings and any other celebration. I charge $275 per hour (for a minimum of two hours) and you will receive all the edited digital images afterwards on a USB or via online gallery.
