So you’re interested in a session, but you’re not exactly sure what that entails! Don’t worry, I’m here to guide you through the process and understand why capturing real, genuine moments is the best thing to preserve your memories.
What kind of photographer are you?
I am a photographer who cares about getting real, genuine moments from my families. Families can be chaotic, beautiful, wild and fun. They can be tender, quiet and peaceful. Families come in all shapes and sizes and every single one is different and unique. I know that nobody’s family is perfect. But neither are our memories. Our memories are the detailed moments and the in-between, the giggles and the dancing. They’re not the posed, perfect, flat smiles. They’re the look of love on our faces when we’re with each other.
Where will my session be held?
Your location needs to fit with your personality and your family. We have a few regular locations that we like to shoot at, like the beach, a forest, some local parks. We also like to shoot in your home if that fits your family. Take some time to think about what location best fits for your family - keeping in mind the children’s ages, if pets are involved, etc.
If you have a location that’s really special to you and your family, let us know! We’re always open to new places.
How long will my session be?
I understand that kids have very short attention spans! My sessions are usually an hour or so. We have lots of little breaks when we need to! We play games and dance and move around, keeping everything lighthearted and fun. Kids are never still, but there’s some real fun in that, too! This is plenty of time to get a variety of images for your gallery and some beautiful heartwarming moments.
What will my session be like?
One word: Easy. I move fast to make sure that the kids stay involved and I’m constantly guiding and directing you to bring out the best moments for you and your family. There is so much we can do in such a short amount of time. I am relaxed and easy going, and if something’s not working quite right, I’ll change and adjust on the go.
Where will my newborn session be held?
If you’re interested in a lifestyle newborn session then we highly recommend doing it in your home. Capturing all the little details of where they begin their journey in life is one of the best things about being at home. Your home should have nice natural lighting, bright enough to shoot without needing any extra lighting equipment.
What should I wear?
Excellent question. Absolutely no matching! We recommend coordinating together rather than wearing matching outfits. Wear something that is comfortable and reflects you and your personality. For a more detailed guide, you can read our recommendations here:

How far out are you booked?
I am usually booked a few weeks in advance. Please be aware that my sessions are usually on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. If needed, consultations are usually on a weekday afternoon.
Can I see an example of your sessions?
Of course! Just check out our blog for the most recent sessions, where you can see them in full.
Will I get the digital photos from my session?
We are passionate about printing your artwork from your gallery. It is so important to have real, tangible memories that will go on to become family heirlooms. With that said, we understand that we live in a digital age and social media plays a huge role in our lives which is why our first method of delivery is digitals.
However, we do not offer print releases. If you wish to print your images, you must order through us to maintain quality. Strictly no printing at ordinary retailers like Kmart/Officeworks etc.
How can I order wall art like canvas/framed prints from you?
After your session we reveal your gallery. It already comes with all your digital files plus a storybook album (if you select the Storybook package).
We also have a range of prints, framed prints, canvas, folio boxes and more. If you’re interested in more heirloom products, you’re more than welcome to order more via a consultation after your session.
What are your prices?
Check them out here.
There is the option to order more from our heirloom collection of products and prices vary from $500-$2300.
Is there anything I should bring?
Just your beautiful selves, positive vibes and excitement!
