I photograph maternity, babies, children and families.
My photographic style is based on candid, photojournalistic photography. I place emphasises on capturing moments which arise from natural connections between people. So there is very little posing and a lot more observing.
If you are looking for studio style newborn photography with bonnets, floral headbands and miniature baby beds, unfortunately, I’m not your go to person.
All outdoor sessions take place at various tried and tested park locations south of the river. We will work together to find the closest and most suitable option for where you are based and the type of session you are after.
Indoor sessions are not just reserved for newborns, but families too. These sessions take place in the comfort of your own home.
l book all outdoor on location sessions one to two hours before sunset as this is the time that the sun is at just the right spot to create beautiful, flattering light for your session.
Indoor, Newborn Photography lifestyle sessions are run in the morning.
Once your booking form and deposit is received, your due date/interim session date is reserved.
However even if you are booked for a c-section/induction your baby’s exact arrival date cannot be guaranteed so your final session date and time will be confirmed after baby is born.
While my natural, unposed style of photography does not require your baby to be less than 14 days old, we would still like to get some sleepy baby memories, so the earlier the better. I ask my clients to notify me within 48 hours of baby’s birth and from there a date is locked in for your session.
You will be sent a guide for choosing your outfits once your session is booked. I will walk you through the process of choosing your outfits, letting you know what does and doesn’t photograph well.
Kids will be kids and sometimes, that’s half the fun! We will work with what we have and I’ll also send you some info prior to your session that will maximise your chances of happy munchkins!
You will receive a link via email to view your private online gallery within 2-3 weeks of your session. Your images can be shared and downloaded directly from the online gallery which will be live for a 2 week period.
I am always as excited as you to see how they turned out, so session previews will sporadically be uploaded to Facebook and Instagram as I work through your gallery.
All of my packages are digital which means that you receive all of your images in digital format and are not required to order prints through me.
I believe a printed image is the best type of image, so I am not going to give you a big speech about how you shouldn't print through retail labs. However, I will say that for images that last the years and colours that are as true to the way I intended them to be, I do not advise printing at one of those establishments.
The short answer is no; no they don't.
However, as a small business owner, being able to show off the beautiful images that we create together, is paramount to my success.
I mean... if you had never seen any of my images would you even be here reading these FAQ and considering making a booking?
So if you have any reservations... please have a chat with me to see if we can work a way to serve us both.
