What will happen at your session?
Once I arrive, we will have a chat about your session and have a tour of your house and decide where the best light is.
My style is very relaxed so apart from some general direction - such as where to sit - you are free to snuggle, tickle, play and love each other while I capture it all.
Sessions take approx 1-2 hours and there will be jumping on the bed.
Any Special Tips for Newborns?
Best times to capture newborns is between 6-12 days. Have a couple of outfits and special wraps make your session individual and special. And don't worry about bubs needing extra cuddles and feeds - we will take all the time you need.
How do I Prepare?
Depending on the light - I usually shoot in the master bedroom, kids rooms and living areas. Now there is no need to spend ages cleaning like crazy - just declutter. I might move things around if they are distracting.
I definately want to include the things that make your family you - what makes up your everyday. So if you have a special place or reading time is your happy place, if your kids have favorite toys or if grandma knit a blanket - lets include that.
What if the kids are grumpy or sick?
I get it - kids rarely do what you want, when you want (mine definately don't). But this is what it is all about - being real and being messy. And I promise, we will get some gorgeous images that you will love. Plus, think about looking back in years to come and remembering that crazy face your little one used to pull!
If anyone is sick - let's reschedule.
When will I get my photos?
After your session, a sneek peak will be up on social media within 24 hours. Within 3 weeks your private online gallery will be ready to view, where you can choose your 40 images or upgrade to the whole gallery provided by digital download.
If you want to purchase printed products (prints, framed images, photobooks) allow 4 weeks from order date.
Do you retouch?
Simple answer - no. All images are edited to a high standard but I want to capture your family as they are.
Do you travel?
Yes, yes, yes! I am based in North Fitzroy but will travel anywhere in Melbourne or interstate. There is an extra fee for travel over 1 hour to cover expenses - get in touch for details.
Have fun, enjoy the process and connect with your family!
