You don't need a fancy camera to take beautiful photos.
But when it comes to hiring a photographer, you will have skilled professional who understands lighting, posing positions, connection and expression and creating natural looking photos.
I will help direct you and guide you throughout the entire photoshoot. With experience and an education in photography, You can take the pressure off by allowing me to capture the exact photos you desire to have.
Will you direct me?
Yes absolutely, my job is to make you feel at ease and comfortable throughout the entire photo shoot. I will direct you, pose you and guide you.
The shoot takes place at a location of your choice whether this is outdoors or in the comfort of your own home. If this doesn’t suit I can arrange an alternative location.
If the photo shoot is taking place at your home, you will have everything to hand. I will contact you before your shoot and also send you a pre shoot information guide, so you know what to expect from the session.
How much space will I need for you to take our family photo?
For indoor photo shoots, a corner of a room or beside a naturally light space where there is a window, is all I need. A detailed description of my studio kit will be given in the pre shoot information guide.
What if my baby is awake or unsettled during the newborn photo shoot
We’ll get beautiful bright eyed portraits if baby is awake, I love these for a newborn photography shoot.
If baby just wants mum, we take a breather, I go at mum and baby’s pace, after all it is all about your precious bundle of joy. If baby needs fed or changed, that’s perfectly fine. I understand, I have two children of my own. Safety and patience are important when photographing a newborn baby and children
What should I wear?
For an indoor photoshoot, I recommend the same tone as the background. You can decide what style background you would like for personalised photo shoot. You don’t have to decide on just one outfit. You can have multiple looks. I also recommend family members wear the similar tones in family portrait photoshoots as this looks beautiful.
How can I find out more information
I can schedule a complimentary consultation for when suits you. From this we can design a personalised shoot together to suit your needs and expectations.
For posed studio styled newborn photography, I would recommend a session within the first ten days after baby is born as babies are still sleepy.
When will my photos be ready to view?
2-3 weeks, I will schedule your photo reveal to view your fully edited photos and you only purchase the photos you love.
What if I have seen an idea online for my photoshoot?
This is a great idea, from this I can map out exactly what you want from your photoshoot.
How many people am I allowed in the shoot?
Normally, the session price covers as many people as you would like in the photoshoot, however to adhere to current COVID-19 restrictions, this has to be restricted to 5 people max socially distanced for an outdoor shoot.
Anything you think I should know?
I think it is important to chat to your spouse, partner or anyone else who will be in the photoshoot with you. This includes information of what to expect from the session and please pass on any information before the day.
