1. What sort of photos do you take?
Beautiful natural, fun ones! I photograph babies, children, families, maternity, births & weddings! Any type of photos that include people! I've even won a bunch of awards. I'll play with your kids, tickle them, joke with them and run around after them.. I'll do that to you too if it makes you all smile!
2. Where and when do you take the photos?
Where and when it suits you! I am a sucker for early morning (before 10am) or late afternoon (1 hr before sunset) for beautiful light (us photographers refer to it as golden light and it makes you look amazing!). Studio photos take place at my brand newhome studio in Lower Hutt and they can be any time of the day as I can control the light inside.
3. How much do photo sessions cost?
It depends what you want from it. Either way most people spend around $299-499 for a mini session and $599-$2000 for a full session but there is no minimum spend so you are not pressured into buying beyond your budget.
It's an investment into your childs future and happiness and besides what else are you going to do when you retire apart from pour over albums of your kids!!
4. What should we wear for our family photo session?
Wear what is YOU. If you want to mash up stripes, spots and pink and orange flowers then GO FOR IT!! If you don't, then ask me and I'll help you! I have lots of examples and simple tips to have you looking your best. Don't forget to consider having your hair and makeup done - it will make you feel amazing and help you look like the best possible version of yourself!
5. How long do the baby & family sessions take?
Newborn babies - around 2 hours. 6 month+ babies, children and families 1 hour max. I never have a time limit unless it's a mini session which is 20 minutes, but usually after this amount of time they are ready to stop. I never push them or force them to do anything - it's all about gentle persuasion and encouragement and I know how to get the best out of them in a limited amount of time!
6. What happens after my photo session?
I edit the photos from your session (not too much though!), and then present them to you at your viewing session within two weeks. Sooner if I can!
7. Will you share my photos on Facebook?
If you want me to, yes. (please please pretty please!) I love to share beautiful baby photos. But I absolutely respect your right to privacy and will NOT share anything without your permission.
8. Do I need to bring my own props?
No, not unless you have something sentimental you want to include, or if you have a specific idea. I'm a bit of a prop collector so usually I have everything we need right here.
