Sky above, sand below,
Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever...it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.
My approach to family photography is natural & relaxed, with a focus on capturing genuine connection & love. My aim is to tell your unique family story through beautiful imagery for you to cherish & look back on as your children grow. A moment in time, just as you are now, captured forever.
Although I will always aim to get at least one traditional "looking at the camera" shot - this is not my preferred way of shooting. In actual fact, I urge you not to look at my camera, but instead will encourage you to use the time to interact with eachother & just enjoy this time spent with one another away from life's daily pressures. I believe that this will enable me to capture magical, 'candid-style' portraits that will best represent you as a family & tell stories that are unique to you. But don't worry if you are feeling apprehensive about being 'in front of the camera', I will be there to guide you with prompts throughout the session so you & your family are not left feeling awkward or uncomfortable at all. At the same time, I allow you the space to put your own spin on it. I have no expectations on children to behave a certain way during our session. I find it best to give them time to explore, be themselves & have fun- this is where I believe some of the most magical photographs are made.
These sessions are scheduled at either sunrise or one hour before sunset, as this is when the light is most optimal for creating beautiful photographs without harsh shadows. The light is also much softer & flattering at these times. Your session will run for approximately 1 hour, longer if required.
Your package includes a minimum of 40 professionally edited images (mixture of colour & black + white) delivered via a private online gallery for high-resolution digital download.
These sessions are suitable for immediate family members only. Also suitable for families awaiting the arrival of a new little family member.
A $100 deposit is required to book & secure your session date, with the remaining balance due on the day of your shoot.
Please don't hesitate to reach out with any queries you may have, I am always happy to help!
Thankyou for considering me for the honour of providing special keepsakes for you & your family to treasure.
