I take a natural approach to creating heirloom imagery for individuals and families. I LOVE to photograph you to convey the essence of who you are and what you love. I work hard to make sure the entire process is stress- free for you from start to finish, with the end result being beautifully crafted portrait prints and products to be treasured for many years to come. I have been taking heirloom portraits since 2004 for a wide variety of clients. Many of the people I photograph become my friends for years to come. I completely and absolutely love what I do. If this is your family’s first time working with a professional photographer, it can be difficult to know what to expect. What should I provide ? Will there be enough time to get the perfect picture ? Will my child feel uncomfortable in front of the camera ? I completely understand these feelings of concern, you are not alone ! I am here to work for and with you to make your session as stress-free as possible. Remember, this is supposed to be fun !
What to Expect
Children are unpredictable – a characteristic that makes them so lovable – but also difficult to plan around. For this reason I always allow enough time so your session is never rushed. If baby needs a change or feed, or your toddler wants a snack or just 5 minutes to regroup that’s fine, and expected. This is your photo session and I’ll work at the pace of your family. Generally a shoot takes up to 2 hours, I ask that you clear the largest available open area you can (push settees back to walls and relocate coffee tables etc..) Have children’s favourite toys to hand, and have the odd sweetie bribe to hand ! (a promise of beer maybe for reluctant hubbies !)
I am here to make your session a success, and will work with you to find what’s best for your family.
