A typical family session
My family sessions run for about 1.5 - 2 hours depending on the locations we choose (and on how much energy your little ones have!)
I like to keep the session fun and casual - capturing your family being themselves. I will take several posed shots, but the majority of your images will be natural and interactive.
I love to capture the different personalities that make up a family unit, so will dedicate some time to each child so they get their own time in the spotlight.
You can expect to walk away with a cross section of family photos, posed and interactive, some portraits of each child, a few quirky and interesting images of the children highlighting their unique personalities, as well as the glorious details that make family life amazing - close up images of a tiny hand in your own, the light in your child's hair, and whatever other details you tell me are special to you.
Photographing early in the morning or late in the afternoon will result in the best possible images for your family session.
A typical newborn session
My newborn sessions commence mid morning and run for several hours. Leaving enough time for feeds, changes and relaxed conversations will lead to the best possible images of your gorgeous little one.
My newborn sessions are conducted in your home. I will bring along any props and equipment needed. If you would like a specific location incorporated I am happy to travel as well.
I aim to capture newborns in their first few weeks (5 - 10 days old is perfect). I definitely encourage you to book your newborn session before the baby is due and we can pencil in a date, which of course can be changed if needed once bub arrives.
Before your session I always encourage a phone consultation so that I can learn as much as possible about the images you would love to capture.
I will share information regarding location choice, clothing choice and other aspects that will lead to the best possible images that reflect your beautiful family together and all of the individuals in your group. I love getting to know my clients in advance and I find this phone call invaluable.
