My two absolute favourite things to shoot are family photo sessions at home and the celebration of a first birthday. 

 

Family Shoots

I will come to you. Don't worry about the house looking spotless. Don't worry about getting the kids to practise 'cheeeeese' in the mirror. Don't even worry about 'inside voices' and 'best behaviour' and 'don't throw that at the lady' - I'm a big kid at heart and I might just be the one instigating the poking of tongues and the jumping on beds. Just let the kids know how much fun we are going to have and I'll take it from there.

Before we even meet up, I'll chat to you on the phone about all the things you love doing together as a family. I'll get a feel for what makes your family tick and how to best capture you all as you are.

On our shoot day, I'll come hang out for a couple of hours in your home and neighbourhood. A couple of weeks later, I'll come back to your home to show you all your images. I'll help you choose favourites and give you as much guidance as needed so that you have just what you're after at the end of it. 

My session fee is $150 for our shoot.

I offer heirloom albums, archival prints and high resolution digital files, with my packages starting at $495. Shoot me an email for the full price list.

BIRTHDAY SHOOTS

Your baby is turning one! And you've made it through that first year! It's definitely cause for celebration. Bring all your friends and all your family together - there is a party to be had.

You've been planning this for months. You might even be just as excited as the birthday baby (or even a little more?!). When the day rolls around the last thing you want to be thinking about is picking up the camera to make sure the whole day is documented. Hands up if you've ever gotten to the end of a special day to realise all you have are a few blurry shots on your phone?

I'll be there before the first guest arrives. We can take family photos before little outfits get covered in chocolate and I'll  document all those lovely little touches you've put together (before little fingers poke holes in things!). 

All the cuddles, all the birthday smooches, the looks of delight and the attempts at blowing out the candles will be covered. 

I'll be there for three - four hours and offer a selection of high and low resolution digital files so that you have a full set of memories from the day. My birthday party packages start at $595. Get in touch if you'd like to know more.
