Photographing Joy

Anyone can take your picture – I want to photograph your connections, your love for your family and your joy.

HOW THIS WORKS

My job is to see the best in your family so you can see it too.

1.

PICK YOUR SESSION

Take a look through the different options below and decide which type of session is right for your family. Remember – this isn’t about looking perfect, it’s about capturing a little slice of your family story as it is right now.

If you want to chat before committing, let me know and we’ll schedule a call.

2.

LOCK IT IN

Once you’ve decided which collection you want, let me know and I’ll send over the booking form and session agreement. This process only takes a few minutes to complete. I require a $300 retainer at the time of booking – this saves your spot in my books!

3.

MAKE IT YOURS

Once booked, look out for an email with my Client Welcome Guide – this will tell you everything you need to know to have an amazing photo session for your family – from what to wear, to how to get your kids excited – I’ll be there to guide you throughout. I’ll also send over an optional questionnaire to gather more details about your family which will help me make the experience the best it can be for you!

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

MY APPROACH IS Different

Everyone feels a little weird for the first few minutes of a photo shoot – I totally get it. But my approach is completely stress free and relaxed – there’s zero pressure on any of you. We’ll take the time we need, and I’ll guide you and create a space where you feel like you can just be yourselves.

My style is heavily focused on capturing real moments of happiness and joy – there won’t be any looking at the camera and saying cheese, so we can avoid all those awkward and fake looking smiles.

I’ll give you plenty of direction, but my goal is to help guide you towards those beautiful moments. You deserve to look back on these photos one day and see yourselves in them, not some posed version of yourselves.

Anyone can take your picture, but I want to capture something more meaningful for you. I want this to be your story told beautifully.

All Sessions Include:

  • A stress-free, heartfelt session for your family.
  • Love your images guarantee (or I’ll come back)
  • A photographer (ME!) with 13 years of experience photographing families!
  • Detailed Session Welcome Guide to prepare you for your photography experience with me and that guides you on how to have a great session and what to wear
  • Emotional, gorgeous, hysterical portraits of the chaotic moments, and the tender ones.
  • A relaxed online viewing experience where you can select and order your favourite photos of your beautiful family, from the comfort of home.

FAQ

Where will our photo session take place?

Most clients opt to have their sessions at home – this is where you and your kids will feel most comfortable. We can shoot inside and outside around your home and neighbourhood. Optionally, you can have your session outdoors at one of my fav spots or another spot that is meaningful to you. Anything goes here, we can do something really unique!

I’m worried my kids won’t behave…

Kids are chaotic, and messy and real by nature. In this season of life, I would be really surprised if your children did behave! I include a section in my welcome guide about preparing your kids for the session and getting them excited – the truth is, this session is not about perfection, it’s about finding happiness and joy even in the less than perfect moments. I’m not worried about your kids behaviour, and I promise you won’t need to worry either.

My house isn’t “Pinterest-Worthy”

I am happy to work in both gorgeous mansions and the most modest apartments – it truly doesn’t matter. Your images are about you, your family and your connections, not about your house. Having your home as part of the images will just aid in creating unique images that are personal, regardless of how fancy or not your home is.

When will we receive our gallery?

You can expect to receive an email from me containing the link to your private online gallery within 2 weeks following your session. I retouch and include all the best images from your session in your slideshow for you to select from.
