“The idea is not to live forever, but to create something that will.” ~ Andy Warhol


It’s no secret that time flies. We are ever growing and changing. Milestones come and go but we never want to forget them.

From wanting to document you and your partner while it’s still just the two of you

to those tiny fingers clutching onto yours, the squishy little face, dummy sucking, waddling first steps

to school days, siblings, getting messy, playing til the sun sets

to extended family gatherings….

Let’s get these memories recorded so you can continue to cherish them <3

Some frequently asked questions…


Do you photograph family events like birthdays and christenings?

Yes I do! Please get in touch for more info.


When do I have to pay?

A 25% non-refundable retainer is due to confirm your date. The remaining balance is due 2 weeks prior to the session date.


Do you offer payment plans?

Yes. Please discuss this with me during our first meeting/chat. We can customise a plan to suit your needs.


We feel a little shy and uncomfortable in front of the camera. Will you tell us what to do?

I like to keep it quite casual as my aim is to capture your natural interaction, emotion and connections.  I don’t ask you to do anything that will challenge the authenticity of your personality. I want you to be comfortable to be yourself. I want to capture you with your family doing the things that you want to remember.

I want you to visualise those moments that make you smile. Those moments that tug at your heart strings. Those moments that will tell your ‘now’ story in 20-30 years time.

As well as capturing the natural moments as they unfold, I often give some direction and position you in the best light.


Would you still do our session if we live too far away?

Yes! Meeting with new people and learning more about them makes me want to get out and go see the world more.


How many photographs do you usually take?

I don’t count images or limit the amount of images. It’s all about what happens on the day. Just go with the flow and try to think quality, not quantity. Your final gallery will include a minimum of 50 images.


How long do I have to wait to see the photos?

Within a week of your session, I will send you a sneak peek of some edited images. No more than 6 weeks after your session, you will receive a password protected online gallery of all your images.
