experience: portraits

Life is made up of small moments that often mean the most.

Those moments should be captured for you to look back on and cherish.

Whether you are newly engaged, expecting for the first time, or expanding your family, you are in a season of life that only uniquely happens once! It’s so important to me that you not only leave a session with me knowing you’ll have gorgeous photos but feel like you were taken care of from start to finish. 

You may be wondering what type of outfits your family should wear, concerned that your kids won’t smile, or that you’ll feel awkward in front of the camera. That’s the beautiful part of hiring a professional photographer; you don’t need to worry! I work hard to give you a relaxed and enjoyable experience. I have styling guides for all sessions, I know how to work with families to capture natural smiles and joy, and give you prompts to follow during your entire session so you never are wondering what to do with your hands. 

My specialty is capturing candid moments that are timeless, at any stage of life.

Our portrait experience is usually one hour. However, we allow a little more than an hour for each session so there is no rush. Newborn sessions are normally ninety minutes to two hours, just in case little one needs feeding or settling throughout.

If it is wet and soggy, we will reschedule. If it is hot, we will find some shade. If it is overcast but dry, we will go ahead as some of my favorite sessions have taken place on cloudy days. 

Treats for the kiddies (bribery perhaps?), a beautiful blanket, water, your little one's favorite toy..... a relaxed and positive vibe.

Approximately 3 weeks after your session your photos will be available for viewing, downloading and ordering via your own private online gallery. You will select the final images to be printed for your included package and any extras you may wish to purchase.
Once your order is placed I will send you a confirmation email along with your invoice, orders will not be fulfilled until the invoice is paid in full.

If you're sick, we reschedule! Simple as that. Working with children I have come to expect that last minute texts or calls will occasionally happen. We want this to be a 1000% positive experience, so there’s no need to force it if anyone is unwell.

Portrait sessions can be held outdoors or in the comfort of your home. All sessions include a pre-¬session consultation, styling guide, online gallery and access to digital files.

Portrait collections start at $650 and clients normally invest between $1,000 - $1500 in a portrait experience

Newborn and Maternity collections start at $750 and can be bundled with a Belly to Baby membership starting at $275 plus the session fee.
