THINGS TO CONSIDER

WHEN PLANNING YOUR PHOTOS


Location

Our area offers some of the best scenery around. If you’re looking for amazing spots nereby, let me know and I’ll be happy to give you some ideas! Think of places that best suit your personalities. It is also important that the location you choose is accessible for everyone involved in your session.



timing

The best time for your photo session is during the golden hour. This is when the sun is low in the sky offering the most even and flattering lighting. I try to schedule all of my sessions either early in the morning or an hour before sunset (taking into account your kids nap & dinner time).



what to bring

Water, snacks, whatever you need to keep everyone happy! For the girls, make-up (if you want to touch-up). Four legged friends are also more than welcome (if they play nice, and/or the location allows for pets!).



Preparation

To avoid last minute stress… make sure to pick out all of your family outfits and any props you wish to include well in advance. If your outfits are new - make sure the kids get the chance to wear them a couple of times first, so on the day of your photo session they feel more comfortable, can relax and have some fun.



Its all in the details

Your clothing selection and choice of location will make the biggest difference in the final feel and look of your photos. Feel free to message me with any ideas you have in mind. I’m always happy to give my advice and help you make the most out of your investment and overall experience.


 

FAQ


What is your shooting style for family photos?

I am a lifestyle photographer and my style is focused on capturing real moments! This means getting you interacting, rather than posing, and having a fun time together. This is where the magic happens!

What if my kids wont engage?

That’s okay! Many kids are shy or have a hard time posing for the camera... this is where the ‘lifestyle’ approach comes in. I take a little bit of time talking with you and your family before we jump into the session. Once we’re all feeling a little more relaxed, I simply ask you to play some games as a family - tell jokes, tickle etc. Simple, fun interaction that evokes genuine emotion. You focus on the belly laughs and I’ll document it in the pictures!

Can I cancel / reschedule my session?

After booking, deposits are non-refundable. This is because I hold a specific date for you and potentially turn away other clients. If you need to reschedule a $100 rescheduling fee will be required - unless, a significant amount of prior notice is given.

When should I book?

I encourage you to book in for your session as soon as you’ve decided on all of the details! Most of my Saturdays are secured months in advance with weddings and the Sunday sessions tend to get snapped up pretty quickly.

When is my payment due?

A $100 deposit is required at the time of booking, with the balance payable prior to your session. Bank transfer and/or cash payments only.

What happens if it rains?

No need to worry! If your session date gets rained out we can either move it to a different location, or reschedule to another date that suits you. There is NO rescheduling fee if this was to happen.
