portrait PHOTOGRAPHY

I encourage clients to view this session as family time. To enjoy it as a day out with your family where we will capture real smiles and honest portraits. It is a relaxed and fun environment.

I do not believe in forcing a situation to get a specific shot but rather let the session take on its own flow to capture genuine expressions.

I am guided by your children and before and during the session I will chat with you and them to gain their trust and put them at ease. With toddlers you can be assured of little messes and we love that too. Life is precious, beautiful but also a little chaotic and messy at the best of times.

 

Albums

A wonderful way to experience your yearly memories is to have them printed. The album is available in a 17x17cm size with a beautiful printed personalised cover.

The albums are layflat, printed on photographic paper and comes with a standard of 20 pages. The high quality crafted albums will be sure to last you for many years and keep your memories safe.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the session last?

Sessions normally run between an hour to an hour and a half.

What should we wear?

It is a good idea to co-ordinate colours. Try and avoid logos and busy patterns. It is very important that you wear clothes you feel comfortable in and which is a true reflection of your style. For inspiration I have created Pinterest boards.

What should we bring?

If you have a nice blanket or throw you can bring it along to sit on. For small children you can bring some drinks, non messy snacks, a favourite toy or stuffed animal and a set of emergency clothes. Don’t forget the wipes!

Where will the photos be taken?

All sessions are done at a location of your choice. This can be at your home or a place that is special to you. Once your session is booked, we will discuss what feel you are looking for and work together to find you the perfect location. I do not have a studio as my preference is to work on location.

When will I receive my photos?

Approximately 4 weeks after your session, your images will be ready. I will usually post a preview of the session on my Facebook page.

Can I choose the images for my album?

Absolutely! Your images will be available on an online gallery for you to easily pick your favourite images for the album.

How long does the album take?

The design, printing and binding process can take up to 6 weeks. It depends on the amount of changes required and how quickly I receive the final approval of the design.

What is your approach with small children?

I do not like to push toddlers to do specific poses as they quickly become irritable. The best is to come with an open mind and let the session unfold naturally. You will be amazed at the wonderful images I am able to capture.

What happens when it is pouring with rain on our session day?

If that happens, we will reschedule the session.
