I live on the Central Coast just North of Sydney, Australia.
However I offer sessions from Sydney through to Anna Bay
Yes! I hold all my newborn sessions and also offer family, maternity and milestone sessions in my studio. It’s a brand new space located in Toukley, with more than enough room to make you feel right at home. I have a kitchenette with complimentary refreshments, and of course coffee!
There's a play area for the toddlers to keep them happy and a lounge area for you to relax.
It's also home to my client closet. Everything is organised and hanging for you to browse and together we can plan and style your family for your session. There's also a bathroom for your needs. I have thought of everything and provided it - from hair care, to underwear... it's all available and there to make your session a breeze!
Yes! I offer maternity and family sessions in certain areas of Sydney (Rouse Hill, The Hawkesbury or the Northern Beaches). I also travel to Newcastle and the Hunter Valley. These locations do however have a small travel fee. If there's a special request (especially for weddings) on a certain location that's quite far away, I'm definitely able to travel! Just contact me and let me know what you're looking for.
Oh this excites me! I have carefully selected the outfits I have purchased and offer them all in a range of sizes. I have some that are high-end, handmade gowns and I also have some that are from sweet little boutique stores. All are chosen with different shapes and sizes in mind and work to flatter all body types.
My client closet is available for everyone to use for their sessions. You receive a complimentary, half hour, styling appointment with all bookings in my studio - So together we can chat it through and plan your families outfits. Once you’ve selected the items you’d like to use, I bring them along to your session and take them back with me afterwards and have them all cleaned ready for the next client.
This is called ‘golden hour’ and it’s simply because the light is so soft and golden right before the sun sets. It casts beautiful creamy tones rather than harsh white light, and is much more suited to portrait photography and making you look your best!
No. Offering my unedited images is giving you only half of my product. I have a high standard that each image must meet, and if it does not meet that criteria, it is removed. If there’s more images I love and know you will like, I will include them. I do not however send you a gallery to choose which ones you’d like, I just include them all for you.
If either you, your partner or your children are unwell and you cannot attend your session, we will reschedule to another week once everyone is healthy and well. Especially since Covid, it is very important to stay home if you are feeling unwell, and to let me know.
Your contract will state this, but the turnaround timeframe is a max of 4 weeks. You'll receive an email with a link to view and download your entire gallery.
I have recently made this decision, and it is purely based on maintaining consistency in my work. I want to ensure you are guaranteed to receive what you see in my posts and advertising. Choosing to no longer offer in home sessions has allowed me to have complete control over lighting and the space in which I use.
This varies for each session. Sunset sessions go for around an hour, sometimes a little longer once we’ve met and walked to the desired location etc. Studio sessions are booked for 1.5-2 hours and are scheduled from 11.30am-3pm on weekends as this is optimal lighting.
Not a problem at all! There’s no such thing in my books. My style is a mix of lifestyle and posed. So you’ll hear me giving you explicit instructions but other times I’ll give you a prompt or something to do that will give us those candid, cute moments that just happen.
I’ll always touch base with you if the weather forecast isn’t favourable. Sometimes it clears later in the day, but in the case of having to postpone, we will just reschedule to another date that suits.
Yes! Most definitely. You’ve invested in beautiful family photos, so make the most of it and pamper yourself. You’re not going to look back at your images and wish you didn’t have your hair and makeup done.
I have partnered with the wonderful Kim, who offers a package for both hair and makeup, for $200
You have the option of either attending her salon in Terrigal or have her come to your home. There's an option during my booking process to select her package if you wish to.
