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 time with me 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.
