The shoot is planned around you and your family’s favourite places and things to do. I want to capture photographs that tell the unique story of you and your family. Think of it as me joining you on a classic weekend morning. We can go the park, beach or anywhere you like really, or simply just hangout at your place. I'm also very happy to include the family pets and hobbies that are significant to you.
Every shoot is done in my usual fun loving and relaxed style to make you feel totally at ease. Sessions are around 3 hours and take place at home and on location. There is always time for a cuppa as capturing moments during downtime are just as important as having mini adventures with your family. The set of pictures that I capture will make you smile, laugh and maybe even get a lump in your throat.
I'll chat to you before the day to learn more about your family, discuss ideas and find out exactly what you are looking for. Sessions often take place during the morning starting at a time that suits you and your routine. For older kids we can do later shoots and catch some magical evening light. Come dressed as yourselves but ready to play and have fun because the best smiles are the natural ones.
Newborn shoots take place in the babies first 2 weeks. I understand what an overwhelming and fragile time this can be so shoots are mega relaxed and we just go with the flow and follow you and your babies needs. All you have to do is be ready for lots of cuddles and a have a few outfit changes on hand then I'll sort out everything else.
Another fantastic time for a shoot is when your baby is sitting up but not yet crawling. Your baby will be full of smiles and different expressions creating lots of opportunities for fantastic photos. Other good times are when reach the important milestone of 1 year old or when they start sofa surfing/walking, I can do shoots at any age but some stages are definitely easier than others. Just give me a email/call to discuss and we will come up with a plan.
