WHAT TO BRING & WEAR?
It’s not everyday you make the effort to have family portraits taken so I encourage you to spend time to organize what your family will wear and mums this is your chance to pamper yourself a little eg. hair and makeup/new outfit (it will be well worth it in the images).
Ideally you want to wear something that is firstly comfortable and reflects your personality as a whole family. Choose prints, colors and textures you love and don’t forget to accessorize eg. hats, scarves, necklaces, earrings, bracelets etc.
Bring water & snacks, even if you just fed your child before you arrived, it is useful as a reward afterwards too. It is also ideal for young children to bring their favourite toy/security blanket too. It’s a great source of conversation when I introduce myself to them.
I am open to props such as the following:
- Kids furniture eg. chair
- Bunting/picnic style set ups
I do recommend bringing a plain colored blanket to sit on as well.
Most importantly please bring your patience and a positive attitude 😉
WHAT TO EXPECT?
My approach to photographing your children is to above all, allow them to be themselves. My goal is to make them feel as comfortable as possible with me so I can most accurately capture the essence of their personalities as they change from moment to moment. It usually takes 10min to warm up to each other and try not to get too frustrated if your child won’t sit still for lengths of time (most do not). Remember, they react accordingly to your emotions so bring your sense of humor. You know what makes your child laugh more than any other person so you can typically help set the mood.
I do not utilize in-studio props or backdrops, aiming to keep it simple and capture the most natural expressions for you to cherish and hang on your walls for years to come.
From my own experience as a mother, I know how fast they change and grow so hopefully the images will remind you of the small things they did at that stage in their lives.

WHEN & HOW WILL I RECEIVE IMAGES?
I usually enjoy sharing previews via my Facebook page a couple days after the session so you can see how it turned out. You shall receive the full edited collection of colored and black and white images within 2 weeks. Each image is individually and uniquely edited which also includes color correction, cropping and retouching to clean up required images. All images received are in high resolution format (jpeg) which can be printed and shared as you please.
