The Photographer

From a young age I have loved photography. Those priceless memories in time, caught, to be reflected on for years to come. But it wasn’t until my eldest daughter was born that I put the wheels into motion to expand on my understanding of all things photography related. With the support of family and friends, I commenced my business and started capturing other people’s special moments.

My girls are my muses. They are not poses, far from lol. I run around them to get that perfect shot. I come up with silly games to get those cheeky smiles and I let them be as they are and explore. I love capturing those real expressions. Those frowns when they are told no, those whole hearted belly laughs and those cheeky grins. I will work with your family to get to know you, your little ones, and how to capture you all in the best way possible.

My photoshoots can be a little adventure in the wilderness or just a day in your life. Whatever you want to remember in years to come.

Newborn Photography

I remember when my daughters were born and as I was looking at them, I immediately felt as though I never knew true love until I held them in my arms. I never wanted to lose that memory and the deep connection I felt.

Time truely goes by quickly and even more so when it comes to newborns, they grow up so quickly with each passing day as they grow more and more into their personality.

My newborn photography is about your beautiful little baby and capturing and preserving those tiny little features and expressions which they outgrow ever so quickly, with the people that they will learn to love.

These photographs are not just pieces of paper, they are a memory that will last beyond a lifetime that even future generations will treasure.

To obtain the most out of your newborn photography session it is advisable you book your session when the baby is aged between 5- 14 days old, though we can still capture those incredible moments after that small time period.

Children Photography

My Children Photography is about capturing those milestones and development as they learn to raise their head , sit, crawl, walk, run, jump and so much more.

I enjoy documenting their innocence, personalities and behaviours throughout the session in outdoor locations to give them the freedom to be who they are.

My aim is to allow your children to be themselves as they explore and experience the world around them with their curious little minds.

Family Photography

A natural and relaxed family portrait experience where you are free to be yourself, and participate in the creativity of your poses.

My husband and I attended a stduio based family portrait session in 2014, though the staff were friendly and professional, the experience was…well unpleasant because we felt uncomfortable doing some of the staged poses, long drawn out fake smiles and just waiting around for instructions.

My family photography sessions will be done at a location of your choosing, it can be done at your home, a park, a beach or anywhere you want.

Lifestyle Photography

Lifestyle Photography is about capturing real life everyday events. It’s about you being you, and involves me just being their to capture the moments as they happen. You are inviting me to come along to photograph you for about an hour of your life. This may mean witnessing a child being upset, a messy meal time with your baby or your children’s bedtime routine. It can be out doing a regular activity, going to the park, your child learning how to ride a bike or going out to your favorite ice creamery. The options are endless, but the memories are priceless.

Preparing for your shoot is simple as all you need to do is wear whatever you would normally wear for whichever period or place in your life you wish for me to record. There is no need to coordinate outfits with the rest of the family, this is about being a true reflection of you and your daily or favourite activity.

During the session I will encourage your input on what you’d like photographed and freely move onto a new activity as you generally would as though I was not there. Communication during the session is important so I am more than happy to give and receive suggestions.

I’ve found that sometimes parents don’t want to be in the photos. It is as if they feel it is more important to capture their children or they become self-conscious about how they would look, but it is about documenting your life too that is important for your children. They won’t remember how you smiled when you held them or how you followed them around the home cleaning up their mess or how nervous and excited you looked as they rode their bike around for the first time. Let them join you when in years to come, you all look back at these memories and remember the family as a whole.

Children, Family and Lifestyle sessions can take up to 1 hour. Newborn sessions can take up to 3 hours.

 

Where will the session be located?

Anywhere you are comfortable within Sydney to the Blue Mountains and the immediately surrounding suburbs.

If you are unable to decide or have no idea on where you would like to have your shoot, we can discuss what you would like to get out of the shoot and I’ll make a recommendation.

A general guide is about an hour from Springwood, one way, anything over will be charged at $10 for each additional 15 minutes in travel (return trip included).

 

How much do the sessions and products cost?

I’ve found that sometimes parents don’t want to be in the photos. It is as if they feel it is more important to capture their children or they become self-conscious as how they would look, but it is about documenting your life too that is important for your children.

They won’t remember how you smiled when you held them or how you followed them around the home cleaning up their mess or how nervous and excited you looked as they rode their bike around for the first time. Let them join you when in the years to come, you all look back at these memories and remember the family as a whole.

 

What is included in the packages?

Please refer to the “Packages” tab on this page for a list of all included products.

 

What can I expect in the shoot?

I understand that children will get tired and bored very quickly when asked to pose for any length of time, so I will go between posed and candid shots to keep them interested and entertained.
I will do a mixture of single, duo and group shots, both posed and candid. If you have any ideas such as, spinning around with your child, playing peek-a-boo behind a tree or a tasteful nursing shot with your baby, just mention it and we will give it a go.

Yours and your child’s welfare and happiness is the most thing to me during the session, so please feel comfortable enough to interrupt me whenever you wish to either entertain your children, feed them, settle them or speak up if you have any concerns.

 

Preshoot

 

What should I bring?

This is completely up to you, but anything special or meaningful to your children/babies is helpful, such as, a blanket or toys to entertain them, settle them, grab their attention. If your child is shy, toys can help them to feel comfortable.

 

What should I wear?

Further information regarding what to wear will be emailed to you upon booking your session.

Within your gallery will be instructions on navigating through your images and deciding on your product. You will be able to make comments on individual images such as editing requests.

You can select your favourites and once complete I will receive a list of your chosen images to begin finalising your products.

The gallery will be available for viewing for a 1-week limit.

 

Can I change mind on the selected images?

Yes, you can. After you have submitted your images, you will still have access to make amendments to your order for a week. Afterwards if you wish to make any amendments to your order, contact me to discuss, because it will not be possible once your order has been sent for printing.

Not the ones in the private viewing gallery, but after you receive your package and products, you can share them with whoever you want and display them freely on social media.

 

How often will you be in contact with me?

I will regularly attempt to stay in contact, by phone or email whichever you prefer to follow up and keep you updated regarding your shoot and order.

 

What if I am not satisfied with the session or my products?

Your satisfaction with the session and finalised products is important, so before you receive the finalised product I do ensure they are of top quality but if for some reason you are not satisfied or if there are any concerns please let me know.

 

What will happen in the event of bad weather?

Depending on the weather conditions it may be unsuitable to proceed with the session, so I will discuss it with you before the session giving you the option to reschedule.
