SESSION DETAILS AND INVESTMENT IN YOUR FAMILY’S LEGACY

Thank you for your interest in working with me. It is an honour to document your family’s story.

THE SESSION EXPERIENCE

These relaxed and enjoyable photo sessions are ideal for preserving visual memories of the everyday as well as the significant milestones in your life, such as pregnancy or welcoming a new baby.

I love to photograph life as it is right now, undirected and unscripted; real moments documented in a very honest way.

However, I also find that some families appreciate a little guidance and direction during their session. This is why I offer a unique blend of storytelling documentary family photography and guided lifestyle family photography.

We’ll discuss your expectations and wishes ahead of time and we’ll spend a few moments at the beginning of your session to get to know each other so that you feel completely at ease in front of the camera and fully able to trust in my photographic vision.

As I work, I’m anticipating a time, many years in the future, when you will look back over the photographs we make together.

Through these visual memories, you will remember the home you once lived in, or a frequently visited place you loved. You will remember how incredible your body was as it grew and nurtured a new life.

Images of you cradling a tiny baby whilst simultaneously playing with your toddler will evoke feelings of nostalgia and love.

These are photographs for your future, becoming more valuable as time goes on. They are for your children and your grandchildren to cherish.

Embrace this wonderful and special time in your lives, and simply, be.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

If you have a question for me, don’t hesitate to ask!

HOW SOON WILL I SEE MY IMAGES?

Individual attention and creative processing of your images normally takes 3 weeks.

I always choose the type of processing that best suits each individual image; therefore, your gallery may contain a mix of colour and black-and-white images.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET THE FINAL IMAGES?

Design and production of heirloom albums may take up to 8 weeks to process. I will keep you updated on your order’s progress.

Digital image files are delivered promptly via a cloud-based file transfer service.

I'VE ALREADY HAD MY BABY, IS IT TOO LATE TO BOOK A NEWBORN SESSION?

No, it’s not too late. I keep my calendar flexible to accomodate sessions with newborns so I might be able to fit you in. Please ask!

HOW DO YOU SUGGEST WE PREPARE FOR OUR PHOTO SESSION?

If you have young children, tell them a friend is coming to take photos of your family with a camera. You can also show them a photo of me ahead of time so they know what I look like.

Make sure everyone is well fed and rested before your photo session. Try to avoid planning any busy activities on the same day as your photo session, such as a long walk or sports.

Relax, keep an open mind and most of all, enjoy spending this time with each other. A good mood will show in your images!

WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR FOR THE PHOTO SESSION?

After booking, I’ll send you some clothing advice and tips as we prepare for your photo session.

The most important thing is for you to feel comfortable in the clothes that you wear.

DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH FAMILIES OUTDOORS?

Yes I do. Together we’ll plan the best location for your family. Please get in touch if you’d like to know more.
