RMP | FAMILY
Thankyou so much for getting in touch!
As you may have worked out by now, I like things to be pretty relaxed and my aim is to encourage authentic connection. My sessions are based around this concept. I really believe that family photos should be first and foremost about capturing your connection as a family, and secondly about relaxing and enjoying the experience! It can often take a fair bit of effort to get the family on the same page with regards to having photos done, however it is so worthwhile to have someone capture your family dynamic with "new eyes"; that is to pick up on the little things that make your family so special. So you will find my approach is more than just the old school stand and smile (though we do some of that too!), but more about having a chat, a laugh and going exploring!
Your photo session is an opportunity to bottle up this stage of life for you guys, so have a think about what you would love to capture about this time in your life - whether that be a mixture of people/place/things... the options are endless! If it is practical for you, consider having photos at a place that is sentimental to your family. The best part about doing things in the comfort of somewhere familiar is that we can (if you want to!) do some gorgeous photos dressed up in your special occasion togs, and/or also do some more authentic shots to suit the scene too if you so wish. Think impromptu picnic with your fam on the dunes, or roasting marshmallows over a fire with a drink in hand, it could also be feeding the animals, puddle jumping, riding the bikes or jumping on the trampoline, making pancakes in the kitchen or damper in the backyard.... and so many more options! Some families take me to a few of their favourite spots around the farm and we take photos as we go along, whereas others use this opportunity to involve grandparents and extended family (my favourite!). We can accommodate outfit changes, location changes, animals, kids, grandparents, special machinery or cars, the list is endless!
After well over a decade of photographing love and connection in all shapes and forms, I have condensed my offerings for families to one single package - the lot. My approach is to tell your story in an honest and organic way. I like to be able to get creative and deliver the whimsy, soft, heartfelt images that you can feel alongside the more traditional in-focus ones. I have found the best way for me to do this is to take the number away and just breathe in the creativity.
So here we are.
I can't wait to tell your story.

RMP RETURN CLIENTS PLEASE NOTE:
For past clients of RMP, there is a digital-only option available should you prefer it.
Please note this on your enquiry questionnaire and it will be available as a package option on your quote.
If you live "down the road a few hundred kms" we have the option to do things a little bit differently should you be up for it, WHICH IS AWESOME!
The general "Ours to Keep" family session still applies as above, but in exchange for me being able to bring my caravan, two kids and husband along with me to stay overnight we also get extra time to truly document station life for you for the time that I am there.
HOW DOES THAT WORK EXACTLY? Generally it means that we arrive mid arvo pending where we are coming from, our kids make friends with your kids immediately, and over the course of the afternoon, evening and the next morning before we head off again we get the chance to hang out and check out what life on the land is truly like for you guys -- and I am in my element casually capturing you and your family going about daily life! We still earmark prime-time for your official photo session of course (usually that is sunset on the night we arrive, but if you have young kiddos that are partial to an early bed-time then we can certainly work on sunrise/early morning instead), though I absolutely believe that there are some gems in the daily life photos too - especially as the years go by.
If this frightens the life out of you to have a couple extra people in your space that is fine too, we in this case would opt to park the caravan overnight at a free-camp near the highway and I would make my way out for the sunset session solo and return back to the highway once we are finished. No pressure either way here!

WILL YOU PHOTOSHOP IMAGES TO HIDE ANY UNWANTED SPOTS, WRINKLES, ETC?
I colour adjust and do minor edits to all of your images. I keep things very true to life as I believe it's our imperfections that are what make us unique. Where possible and with your permission, I will edit out anything that is not usually there ie. grazes, pimples and/or sores etc, but things like your beautiful smile lines, birthmarks or grey hairs etc are far too precious and unique to erase. If there are specific edits you want, these will be charged according to the number and complexity of edits.
WHAT IF SOMEONE IS SICK OR THE WEATHER IS BAD?
We want everyone to be their happiest and healthiest. If someone falls sick your retainer fee is transferable to a later date (This excludes travel sessions outside of the Port Lincoln area, if unwell your booking is transferable to someone else).
A little rain or a cloudy day produces beautiful light and is not something to worry about, however if I consider the weather too difficult or dangerous to shoot in, we will postpone to another mutually agreed date.
WILL OUR PHOTOS BE POSTED ONLINE?
Your booking questionnaire has a little tick box that asks whether you are ok with social media posts. Your privacy is always respected and if you would prefer to keep all/some of your images private I will respect that. Communication is key!
DO YOU HAVE A LIST OF PREFERRED LOCATIONS TO USE?
I do! Weather conditions can significantly affect any outdoor location and I will always recommend going where it’s most protected from the elements. This means that we will often make the call on which location we will use the day before / morning of session.
