So, you love the idea of photos, but you’re not so sure about the idea of being in front of the camera? Maybe you can’t quite figure out locations, or planning outfits seems a little overwhelming?

I don’t want you to worry a bit. That’s what I’m here for! 

I’ll help you plan every detail of your session down to location, outfits and baby wraps to ensure a fun and stress-free experience.

Scroll down to see what it will be like to work with me! 

the experience

First thing’s first, you need to reach out! I’ll send you personalised information about photo packages, and we can choose the best date to lock in the shoot! 

Once I’ve received your non refundable booking fee, we can map out a location, time and outfits. Outfit styling is all part of my service!

How It Works

This is where the magic happens! The only thing you need to worry about is being in the moment. Relax, have fun, and enjoy yourself! And don’t worry – I’m there to guide you, and to make sure you all have the best time possible.

the session


Yahoo! It’s time to select your photos! Within 3-4 weeks, I’ll send over a selection of the best images, professionally edited by me. 

As soon as the gallery is up, you'll be able to download them in low resolution – perfect for sharing on social media – and high 
resolution – perfect for beautiful 
prints and family albums!

All sessions are done on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. 
Weekend sessions incur a surcharge of $250.

I’m not like every other photographer! I want to make sure you have the best experience possible from your family or portrait branding shoot, so I think you ought to know from the get-go that there are a few things I’ll always do, and some things I won’t. 

Some things that I do do:

the things i do, and the things i don't

Encourage you to love on your family as much as possible. Don’t stop the cuddles and kisses!

Ask that you don’t focus on me, but on each other.

Give gentle direction when needed.

Suggest games to plan, tell funny jokes (well, I find them funny!), and loudly reassure you how much I love how the session is going.

Play music, dance along, and always make sure we’re having fun.

Some things that I don't do:

Stiff, rigid, cheesy poses. I want you to have an amazing time, and that just won’t happen if I’m telling you where to put your hands or how to post! If it doesn’t come naturally, I won’t ask you to do it.

Major photoshopping. You are beautiful as you are, and everyone is photogenic, so I don’t bother with major photoshopping. Let’s celebrate the real-life version of us!

Use newborn props such as buckets, bowls and costumes. Traditional newborn portraits can be so beautiful, but they’re just not what I do! If you have a special blanket, toy or wrap that you want us to use though, I’m all for it!


Am I the right fit for your photos?
