What should we wear?

This is the main question I get asked, so we’ll start here and move onto some other questions you might have a bit further down this page.

Most importantly, I want you to feel wonderful. This is essential to my process. So that’s step one. Find something you feel fabulous in. You need to be comfortable and able to move around easily, I want you free and ready to play with your babies without needing to adjust what you are wearing.

Once your outfit is chosen then you can worry about everyone else. Choose complimentary colours that flow with your clothing choice. Aim for simple, avoid anything with writing or logos. These can be really distracting but can also date your images really quickly as fashions change.

Look for textures, I am all for textures, it photographs so well. Thick knits and anything linen will personally keep me happy forever.

Yes to outfit changes, whatever you want. This is your session. I want to see your style!

What to expect

These sessions are super relaxed and about you and your family interacting and being your wonderful selves. I’m there to document that.

We’ll chat, I ask a lot of questions. This helps me understand you and gives me ideas about how I will tell your story through the photographs we take.There are generally small people involved in my photography sessions who are perfectly unpredictable and totally in charge. That’s the way I want it. Please just let that flow. The more you allow that, the more opportunities I have to capture their pure, free, wild selves.

Where will my photographs be taken?

All of my family photography sessions are at a location that is relevant to you. This might be your home, local park or at the beach. Where do you go often as a family? You are not restricted to just one location either, we can travel to different places during your photo session.

Should I bring props?

I’m not big on the props but I love a good rug or picnic blanket. This is your story so if you have something in mind let’s chat.

Bad weather …

I am really flexible when it comes to weather, and happy to reschedule sessions if we get a rainy day. It is so important to me that you are comfortable during your photo session. If you are organising a large group of people and rescheduling the session is not an option we can choose a location that has some cover from the rain.

Sick kids!

We’ll reschedule. We want everyone feeling the best that they can.

What time would my photo session be?

The sessions are either in the morning or evening as this is when we will get the very best light. There is flexibility here depending on the location we decide to use and if your kids are still having day sleeps. The most important thing is that everyone is feeling great.

When will I get the images?

You can expect to receive your images within three weeks of ordering.
