I have to pinch myself daily when I realise that my passion is my job. I get the opportunity to capture real, natural moments and create classic images that you will cherish for eternity.
I am all about the details and really enjoy getting to know you from the second I start talking to you. I can picture exactly how I am going to go about capturing and styling your session.
I have enjoyed setting up my studio so that you walk into an inviting and calm space, where you will hopefully feel at home enough to put your feet up and relax. Should you prefer an outdoor shoot, I live in the perfect location for alluring photography.
I have beautiful gowns for Maternity sessions to add the elegant touch. Or fun family session where we get the siblings having fun and even more excited about meeting your new baby. Actually most of my maternity sessions we do a mixture of both. Mum can feel pampered and sophisticated in a gorgeous gown and we also bring in the fun, with natural relaxed images. So the best of both worlds I always say.
Maternity sessions are best booked between 28-34 weeks.
Best time to book your newborn session is when baby is 6-10 days old, preferably no later than 14 days, if you are wanting those curly, sleepy poses. Book the newborn session while you are still pregnant and confirm the date and time once baby is born.
When working with newborns I have a very gentle patient approach, as a parent I know how important it is to remember all those details of when your newborn is still so fresh.
With babies and older children I love getting those natural real smiles and moments. My aim is to capture those tiny personalities. So that when you look back at your images you will remember those nose wrinkles and gum smiles.
Family session outdoors (if the weather allows) are my preference. I just sit back and get to document you having a fun outing as a family, let the kids run and have fun, as those natural genuine expressions is what we all love the most and what we want to fill our walls with at home.
After your session, you will get to view and download all your beautiful images.
